"Hairier Than Nancy Dell-Olio's Landline.."

Designing a phone for charity is admirable. Unless it turns out like this one. Did no one at the British Red Cross not look at what Sven's ex turned in and think, 'You know what? I'm not sure this is really on message..."? Or, as a reader has it:

Subject: Nancy Dell'Olio Reveals Customised Home Phone In Support Of British Red Cross

London, 30 June 2008: Italian style icon, Nancy Dell’Olio today unveils her latest customised item in support of the British Red Cross. The phone, a Doro NeoBio has been decorated in a Rio carnival style. The one-off stylised phone will be auctioned off via eBay to the highest bidder at the end of May. All proceeds will be donated to the British Red Cross. Miss Dell’Olio said: “I really enjoyed customising the NeoBio, I am crossing my fingers that we will be able to raise a lot of money for this really worthwhile charity. Please bid and help me help others.”

The NeoBio has been transformed from its original sleek white look to a flamboyant, carnival styled phone AND THEN SOME, LOVE, the same distinct fashion look that the fashionista is famous for. The phone is set to become a collector’s item as it is a one off and signed by Nancy.
