Uzbek President Islam Karimov's daughters are known for living the high life. But even for them, this is pretty impressive.
Lola Karimova-Tillaeva, who is Uzbekistan's ambassador to UNESCO, reportedly spent 190,000 euros
($283,000) to have Italian actress Monica Bellucci
attend a gala event promoting Uzbekistan at Paris's Museum of Modern Art in April.
The nearly $300,000 bought Uzbekistan four hours of Bellucci's time.
Lola still pales in comparison to her older sister Gulnara
, Uzbekistan's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, who this year made it onto "Foreign Policy's" list of the World's Worst Daughters.
