She’s been a long-time supporter of a whole host of charitable causes. But now Beyoncé has gone one step further than merely lending her name to a good cause.
The Halo hitmaker and songwriter Diane Warren have donated album track I Was Here to World Humanitarian Day. Hoping to encourage people around the globe to do something positive for others, the 30-year-old star is keen for her influence will help to shine a spotlight on humanitarian work.
Beyoncé will film a video for the track at the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York City in front of a live audience on August 19. ‘We all see the headlines and we think what can I really do to help?’, she said. ‘World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity for all of us to work together to make a difference. This is our time to leave our mark on the world and show that we were here and we care.’
The campaign website which launched yesterday, encourages people to share their acts of good will, in the hope the message will reach someone.
Beyoncé’s latest act of good will comes after she announced plans to star in a documentary about her life and career. The Crazy In Love singer is to direct, produce and appear in the film which will include concert footage, backstage scenes and interviews with her and her loved ones about her life.
Artist Evan Wondolowski creates these amazing pieces of art using strips of shredded federal reserve notes. A portrait like one of these takes him approximately a month to complete. If you enjoy his work you should definitely check out his website. I like how many many artist have used Biggie as a muse, respect:)
There was a structured, geometric quality to the Mugler Spring 2013 collection, a study in sharp suiting and stark shapes that found inspiration in the depths of the sea. The look was simple and pared-down, very “i vacation in far far far away places” with each look presenting a graphic shape the felt like a play of lines and angles.
It was Nicola Formichetti’s strongest and most cohesive outing yet for the legendary French house, with a clear direction and vision that seemed to reflect his growing into his new role. There was also a distinct emphasis on tailoring, a promising departure for a label better-known for stylistic frills and a studied seriousness that was refreshingly absent here. That oceanic idea expressed itself in a soothing sea-foam green that appeared here and there and an overall shimmering translucence, as well as in the peeks of skin beneath jackets that hinted at futuristic swimwear designs. It was, on the whole, an unassailable argument that Formichetti has come into his own as designer as well as stylist.
The rich, fabulous, and famous came out to support the amFAR Gala last night, where film, fashion, music, and art all join forces for a special cause. Every year amfar raises millions of dollars for AIDS reseach and their always over the top event is always the plae to be seen. Marc Jacobs, Fergie, Hilary Swank, Scissor Sisters, a live marching band, and the Philly Eagles cheeerleaders all sprung for the attention, the atmosphere is overwhelming at times, but all in good fun. Guests were treated to an additional flight of fancy during the evening’s star-studded charity fashion show, filled to the brim with the world’s finest male models. A series of chic looks were up for auction; everything from refined Tom Ford suits, outlandish Thom Browne pieces and barely there bikinis worn with panache by some of the biz’s best bodies. Athleticism was a theme of the evening, with Olympic legend Greg Louganis leading the pack as they made their way down the runway…..sooo Poppington
