A decked out Rolls-Royce turned heads this year at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Hand-painted by mixed media artist Ben Moon, a 1985 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur named “Our Painted Lady” made an appearance on Sept. 8 at the Adriana Marie Co. pop-up store.

The Rolls-Royce was originally owned by car collector Frank Marzano, who selected Moon to paint his signature black and white designs on the car’s exterior to raise funds for charity; the car will be auctioned and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity organization that supports veterans and wounded service members as well as their families.

“When I was a little kid, I used to drive my parents crazy drawing on the walls and furniture around the house. Now, getting the opportunity to use my art to raise money and awareness for a great cause like Wounded Warriors is truly something I’ll remember for the rest of my life,” Moon told New York Smash. “A Rolls-Royce is the ultimate symbol of luxury, and drawing all over it somehow feels very ‘punk rock.’ Being on display during Fashion Week last week was definitely a great experience, so many people were stopping by the car with mixed reactions – some loved it, others could not believe that I actually painted on a Rolls-Royce and seemed offended! But that’s what great art does, it causes a stir and gets people talking.”

The car was kept on display on the street outside of the Adriana Marie Co. pop-up store in downtown New York.

“’Our Painted Lady’ Rolls-Royce was a staple at the pop-up,” Adriana Marie, founder of Adriana Marie Co., told New York Smash. “The charisma from their team was super fun and such a pleasure to have at the pop-up store. We stopped traffic several times and even buses were honking to us and waving. It was great fun.”

“Our Painted Lady” will be auctioned online via Charitybuzz on Dec. 10. To learn more, visit OurPaintedLady.com.
