What do you get the girl who has everything?
Roman Abramovich has just purchased 100 acres of land on the moon for his girlfriend Dasha Zhukova. (Here they are earlier this week, strolling down Madison Avenue in NYC. We like to imagine that the only thing Dasha has in her handbag is a nail file and stacks and stacks of crisp hundreds. It makes us feel safe.)
Roman bought the moon space via the Lunar Embassy, which sells land to the weathy and the sci-fi freaky deakys amongst us. Oh, if you wish to pop by to drop off a happy land-owning gift, Dasha’s plot is located between 20-24°S latitude and 30-34°W longitude. No word on whether she plans to use the area for extra stiletto storage, though it would seem to make the most sense.
Random: Dasha is quite the culture vulture and has recently convinced Roman to get in on the Russian art market.
