Angel of Bull: Versace-Edition Lambo Auctioned for AIDS CharityS

In the tony environs of Los Angeles, there exists a secret society of trophy wives, fading actresses and other members of the scratching-for-the-middle set. Not that there's anything wrong with that. And it's not secret in the least. In fact, the The Rodeo Drive Committee of the City of Beverly Hills is a high-profile organization that does plenty of good, charitable works wholly unrelated to visiting day spas. Take, for example, an auction this past weekend presided by actress Sharon Stone, which raised $500,000 for Elton John's AIDS foundation. They did it by auctioning a special Versace-edition Lamborghini Murci lago LP640 Roadster in honor of the late Gianni Versace and his sister Donatella Versace — having presented the two (one posthumously) with the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award. So today, we on Jalopnik raise our personal copy of Town and Country in their honor. May all their injections be Botox.
