Because it's totally normal and we've all done it.

When Russian student Daria Radionova thought her Mercedes wasn't impressive enough, she deicded to adorn it with £35,000 worth of Swarovski crystals. Because, as we all know, putting crystals on things makes them instantly cool and gets you loads of friends.

Studying business, Daria parks the Merc outside the Levin Hotel in Knightsbridge, London where she's admitted she's worried people will crash into it because they're too transfixed by the sight. 'I am really happy with it and I am looking forward to driving it around. It has only just been finished and everywhere I go people stop to have a look at it,' she says. 'It gets lots of attention from people walking by and in cars. Sometimes I think they might crash. Everyone is taking pictures of it. When I sell the car, I will give the money to charity.'

The Mail reported that the car cost £25,000 even without the crystals, but Daria has insisted that's not the right figure: 'Dailymail btw please change some information as it is not that correct...the car worth more than 25k and i dont even know where did you ger this figure from,' she tweeted. Nothing worse than the world's media saying your car is worth only a cumulative £60,000, right guys? God, so embarrassing.

It's not all bad news though: Ashton Kutcher has expressed his admiration for the bonkers car, admitting he 'secretly' wants one. Daria has also, obviously, customised the registration plate so it reads BA11 BYY which took us a while, but we got there in the end (baby. She's trying to spell baby).

For anyone interested in what a Swarovski Mercedes looks like when parked on a road, here's a video she's posted to Facebook:


Let's hope a pigeon doesn't shit on it. Can you use CIF on Swarovski?
