Kylie clone is letdown at Baywatch do
Macquarie Securities' Baywatch-themed relaunch party at London's exclusive rooftop bar, Coq d'Argent, received a cool reception from some guests and not just because of the un-Baywatch like winter weather. The hosts, who were more modestly dressed than most of Baywatch's former cast members such as Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, had told guests to expect Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue to make an appearance later in the evening.
Guests, however, were not fooled by the lookalike songstress rolled out for their entertainment. "She looked at least 40," complained one hedge fund guest. Kylie, of course, is only 36 and looks considerably younger.
The failure of the Australian bank to secure the real Kylie is particularly embarrassing as she is no stranger to the European investment banking party scene.
Deutsche Bank had managed to secure her services in March when they had her spinning around on stage for clients at its credit derivatives conference in Barcelona.
