CHRISTY

TURLINGTON

BURNS

Model and founder
Every Mother Counts
Charity: Every Mother Counts

Following the release of her directorial debut film, “No Woman, No Cry” in 2010, which shares the powerful stories of at-risk pregnant women from around the world, Christy founded Every Mother Counts.

EMC is a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world.

Christy’s passion about maternal mortality arose after she experienced a complication during the birth of her first child, daughter Grace. This subsequently lead to her exploring the implications for women in similar circumstances without access to pre and postnatal care.

The eternally in-demand supermodel, who recently ran the NYC Marathon for EMC, was recognized earlier this month at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards for her dedication to improving maternal health worldwide.

MACKLEMORE

Rapper
Charity: YouthCare James W.
Ray Orion Center

The rapping phenomenon has had quite the year. The Heist, his album with Ryan Lewis, went platinum. Thrift Shop, the album’s breakout track, amassed a staggering 7 million downloads and ranks as one of the highest-selling single of 2013. The award-winning artist has selected YouthCare's James W. Ray Orion Center, a multi-service drop-in center in his home city of Seattle for at risk and street dependent homeless youths, as his cause.

(One) Officer Boot in Black: “Give these to my brother. Mi Hermano, Timmy. I can see him becoming a man in these boots; wearing them with some super short, cut off jean shorts and representing the family crest with pride.”

(Two) Henderson Flask: “No question, I'd give this flask to Ryan (Lewis). He goes through Jameson like black belts go through wooden planks. He's also going through his "I'm an American badass" stage; polluting his body with tattoos and a cigarette velcroed to his bottom lip.”

(Three) Beacon Glove: “I'd give these to Ryan's (Lewis) girlfriend Jackie. No brainer; I love the pattern.”

(Four) Bi-Fold Wallet in Black: “I think my manager would like this wallet. Clean, simple yet some cool design elements. Stash his cash and keep on working. Perfect gift.”

(Five) Corina Fringe Dress: “I would give this to my fiancée, Tricia. I'm a huge fan of fringe, black and leather and she would look phenomenal in this. Might take her out to a nice Italian meal. Pick her up in the Cadillac. Tell her something like "get in" and open the door for her. Kiss her hand. Throw on some Nat King Cole. Keep it classy.”

CHIARA FERRAGNI

The Blonde Salad - Blogger
Charity: UNICEF

It was during a visit to Chicago in 2009 that Chiara, who was studying law in her native Italy at the time, decided to start her blog.

Today, the street style regular is one of the world’s most influential bloggers, garnering a mind-blowing 12 million page views a month.

She also previously took part in a musical project aiming to support humanitarian efforts for maternal-child health. This holiday, she has decided to continue supporting children through UNICEF. “I think what we do when we get old is already written in our childhood. That's why it is so important to help children in need,” Chiara says.

LIU WEN

Model
Charity: American Red Cross,
Philippine Typhoon Relief

The Chinese cover girl was moved by the recent catastrophe in the Philippines. "The American Red Cross has been a very encompassing aid organization for causes all over the world.

(One) Grayson Overcoat in Camel: “Usually men's coats are incredibly minimalistic, with black as the dominant color, so I especially enjoy the material of this look as well as the color coordination between the buttons and the coat itself.

(Three) Double Wrap Bracelet in Black: “Small accessories always have "big" uses. I love the material and the tinge of personality the belt imitation adds to your overall look.”

(Four) Lumberjack Shirt in Black: “The men's shirt design for this piece is quite interesting - definitely not your typical lumberjack! I especially love the relaxed silhouette and the shape of the leather section.”

(Five) Mini Pilot in Port Multi: “The intricate mini-purse is convenient no matter when or where you need it. The faint dark red color makes it just festive enough for the holidays!”

LILY ALDRIDGE

Model
Charity: St. Jude Children’s
Research Hospital

Even before becoming a mother to daughter Dixie, the work carried out at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital struck a chord with catwalk beauty Lily.

Located in her husband Caleb Followill’s home state of Tennessee, the hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with pediatric cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

Last December, Lily manned the phones at 20th ICAP Charity Day event to help raise funds for St. Jude. More recently, she signed on to participate in the St. Jude Give Thanks Walk, a 5K walk that raises money for the hospital.

Since it opened in 1962, St. Jude has helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent and thanks to donors and fundraisers like Lily, no family of a child receiving care at St Jude pays for anything.
