BRA queen Michelle Mone boobed when she left her OBE medal in a London taxi
The blunderwear boss had owned the coveted gong for just five days.
And last night she had her knickers in a twist as she made a desperate internet appeal to try to retrieve the award – which was in a black case, with clothes and a secret design for a new product.
Michelle, 39, left the case behind when she got out of the taxi.
And as soon as she realised her mistake, she logged on to Twitter to launch an appeal for her property’s safe return.
She tweeted: “Black cab driver who picked me up at Paddington station 3pm and dropped off at Dorchester has my black case. Was taxi sharing with 4 others due to tube strike. Really need to get it back. Has only 1 Ultimo new invention taken 6 months, clothes, shoes and OBE medal. PLEASE help reward given Mx.”
Michelle – who has just unveiled Brazilian high fashion model Raica Oliveira as Ultimo’s newest face and body – told one of her Twitter followers: “I normally get a car but as it was a tube strike it was quicker to get black cab.”
Michelle caused a stir at Buckingham Palace last week when she wore a revealing low-cut corset to receive her OBE f rom Princess Anne.
The businesswoman, who was brought up in the east end of Glasgow, designed the risque black outfit especially for the ceremony.
It was only completed 24 hours earlier, leading to last-minute worries for the co-founder of MJM International, who admitted the ceremony was “so nerve-racking”.
After collecting her medal, she revealed that she would like to design underwear for Kate Middleton to wear for the royal wedding.
She said: “I have designed Kate’s bridal lingerie for her and I’m going to send the designs to her. I think Ultimo fits with her image.”
It could take some time for Michel le to get her OBE returned, even if it is found in the back of the taxi.
London cabbies hand the goods they find in the back of their taxis to the police, who then forward the items to the Transport For London lost property office.
A notice on the Transport for London website last night warned: “Property can take up to five working days to arrive at the lost property office.”
