NEW YORK — It won’t be a typical Saturday afternoon.
Amber Valletta, Kirsty Hume and Shalom Harlow are rounding up Sophie Dahl, Gisele Bündchen, Daria Werbowy, Karen Elson, Natalia Vodianova, Helena Christensen, Frankie Rayder, Donna Karan and other fashion-friendly types for an afternoon of bowling and arcade games at Leisure Time Bowl to benefit tsumani victims.
Organized by the nonprofit group Model Citizen, the event has already raised $35,000 through its sponsors Donna Karan, David Yurman, Bentley and JetBlue. Yurman models Valletta and Werbowy hit up the jewelry designer for help. It costs $25,000 to rebuild a village in the tsunami-stricken areas, said Amanda Clapp, a Model Citizen co-founder.
In addition to the $25 admission (not a requirement for bowlers under the age of 12), there will be a silent auction and the option of upgraded fees for designer-packed goody bags. Among other things, the 400 people expected will have the chance to win a private screening of “Hitch,” a new Will Smith movie that features Valletta.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
