Manicure Monday: Charity Edition

One of my favorite brands, Kiehl’s, will debut a nail polish—their 1st ever!—benefiting amfAR in July.  A sleek minimalist black of course!  What else would you expect from this streamlined brand?  I have long been a fan of black polish, which is in my heavy regular rotation, so you can expect me to be 1st in line.  I am deeply involved in HIV/AIDS advocacy & services, so this is a win-win for me.  The formaldehyde-free polish will be in stores and online just in time for the company’s annual LifeRide motorcycle trip, a 20 person ride to raise HIV awareness and funds for amfAR. This year’s 2,000 mile ride will be the longest since its inception in 2010—it begins in Milwaukee and ends at the Kiehl’s original location at Third Avenue and 13th Street in Manhattan.

Lupita is absolute perfect perfection. Even though awards season is over I just cannot get enough of her. Stunning. Her stylist should win every award ever.

New Line: Pam & Gela

Never been a fan of Juicy Couture, but I like some of the looks from Juicy Founder’s new “California off-duty” line.

The website is only a landing page right now, but the duo says there’s more to come soon.  You can check out some of the looks HERE via The Zoe Report.

Even more than I love Oscars fashion, I love the after party looks!

Leslie Mann - I love her!  So gorg.

My new Marc by Marc Jacobs gladiator sandal, scored on Threadflip for $50!  I can see these quickly becoming my go-to staple for spring.  If you’re not already familiar with Threadflip, it’s an online consignment shop that makes it super easy to buy & sell!  Check out my shop here.

Barneys ‘Brothers, Sisters, Sons, & Daughters’ Campaign

Barneys new ad campaign honors 17 extraordinary men and women, transgender individuals with diverse experiences and unique personal stories, as the faces of Barneys New York’s Spring 2014 campaign, ‘Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters’, shot in New York by Bruce Weber.

Shot by iconic photographer Bruce Weber in New York City, many were photographed and filmed surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. By depicting these human connections, Weber was able to represent both the struggles and triumphs a trans person may face in relation to their gender identity. Barneys New York is proud to support the transgender community by telling a few of their incredible stories.

Patricia Bosworth—a longtime contributing editor at Vanity Fair and author—interviewed each model to uncover a small part of their unique and personal life story. The first-person interviews address a range of issues from bullying, discrimination and abandonment to empowerment, self-confidence and unconditional love. Read the profiles HERE.
