Feeling a little nostalgic for the days of The Big Six, we dug up this photo by Roxanne Lowitt from the archives. Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington are all avoiding evil in their own special way.
A life of fame, luxury, glamour, decadence, excessive style and constant jet setting isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. Trust us. WE KNOW!!! It gets tiring, and at the end of the day, your inner voice always pushes you to do what’s right. You know what I’m talking about.
That’s why last year, our good friend and confidante, Elettra Wiedemann (pictured above), along with her fiancé, James Marshall started One Frickin Day, a charity aimed at equipping PIH clinics throughout the third world with solar power via another partner, Solar Electric Light Fund.
The concept was simple. Get a few thousand people to donate just one day of their salary, and you’ve got enough money to sustain a clinic in need for the entire term of its existence. And it worked. Wiedemann and Marshall have already supported a clinic in Burundi which now provides healthcare to over 60,000 people.
Their next step is Model Behavior, an event this Friday which will launch an online auction hosted by Charity Buzz. The featured items for auction are dresses donated by the world’s most famous supermodels including Christy Turlington, Amber Valetta, Iman, Shalom Harlow, Naomi Campbell, Jessica Stam and more.
But the dresses aren’t the only thing on which you can bid. My personal favorite for the obvious reasons is this one, if only because it includes a table for four in The Boom Boom Room followed by dinner in The Standard Grill. All funds from Model Behavior will go to benefit ministry of health clinics in Rwanda and Haiti.
