Fashion force Louis Vuitton has teamed up with Unicef, pledging to raise funds and awareness as a partner for the children’s charity, and designing two special pieces of jewellery for fashion fans to buy.
In a double celebration, the charity and the Parisian design house also threw a ball to honour David Beckham in Los Angeles last night, awarding him with the Humanitarian Leadership prize in acknowledgement of his efforts to raise over $2.5million for Unicef’s programs. Nice work, Mr Beckham.
Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey, Nicole Kidman and Miranda Kerr all turned out to celebrate the star’s success, wearing a whole lotta custom Louis Vuitton between them. All Unicef fundraisers themselves, the guests were treated to dinner at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel, before Mariah Carey performed three of our favourites – Always Be My Baby, We Belong Together and Hero. See all the pictures in the gallery above.
Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere (pictured below on the night with Lea Seydoux) has designed a ‘Silver Lockit’ for his fashion followers to snap up, with £140 from each sale going directly to the charity. Proceeds from the #MakeAPromise collection, which features a necklace and a bracelet with the padlock pendent, will support children who are exposed to conflict, natural disasters and disease around the world.
‘So happy @louisvuittonand @nicolasghesquiere are partnering with @unicef’ Selena Gomez wrote on Instagram last night. ‘I’ve been an ambassador since I was 17, met Nicolas last year. SO grateful for the worlds to collide for a great cause.’
The Louis Vuitton #MakeAPromise collection is available to buy online.
