Musicians, politicians, celebrities and other public figures came together on Saturday afternoon (Sept 28) to help end global poverty at the annual Global Citizen Festival in NYC’s Central Park. This year’s headliners included Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Kings of Leon and a much-hyped finale by Stevie Wonder who performed for 60,000 people at The Great Lawn. Janelle Monae, Elvis Costello and Will.i.am also made appearances.
“Together, we can put every girl and boy in school,” said secretary Ban Ki-moon. “We can stop diseases. We can empower the world’s women and and protect our environment, this beautiful planet that is our only home.”
Or, as Wonder aptly put it: “We can end extreme poverty in our lifetime—because together we can work it out, and we will reach our higher ground.”
Beyonce, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana, John Legend, Ariana Huffington & Olivia Wilde are just some of the celebrities who are joining forces for a new campaign called “Chime For Change,” a new, global campaign focused on girls’ and women’s empowerment.
It serves to convene, unite and strengthen voices speaking out for girls and women around the world, and to raise funds for non-profit organizations pursuing change.
The video is an effort to help raise awareness of the CHIME FOR CHANGE live concert event on June 1, 2013, at Twickenham Stadium in London, which will be broadcast globally to more than 1 billion people worldwide.
“Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible,” said Beyonce. “I am excited for us to come together on June 1st to bring the issues of Education, Health and Justice for girls and women to the world stage.”
“Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian (with new beau Kanye West) hosted the Midori Beachside Bash at the Delano Beach Club, where she was joined by her BFFs Jonathan Cheban and Larsa Pippen, as well as “Dancing With The Stars” cutie Karina Smirnoff. The reality TV star rocked a white and green Versace dress for the occasion.
“The Voice’s” Christina Milian was all smiles at the Nicolita show, presented by Veet, on Day 2 of Mercedes-Benz Swim Week at the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach. The singer walked the runway with designer Nicole Di Rocco. Wilmer Valderrama and “Dancing With The Stars” cutie Cheryl Burke sat front row.
Actress Shenae Grimes (“90210″) attended the Angela Martini Bikini Fashion Show at WET at W Hotel South Beach for supermodel and swimwear designer, Angela Martini. The Albanian born supermodel created for her premier Spring/Summer 2013 collection an assortment of atypical bikini silhouettes inspired in cut and colors by exotic flowers.
Actress Dania Ramirez showed off her paddle boarding skills at the Muscle Milk Fitness Retreat and Oakley Learn to Ride event, but not before she took a tumble with boyfriend John Land nearby. Miami Housewife Marysol Patton was also in the mix, and was spotted drinking a chocolate Muscle Milk Light on the sand.
Sports Illustrated Models Nina Agdal and Julie Henderson stopped by the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge to get some treatments and cool off from the heat. Nina Agdal received a glamorous summer makeover by professional stylists from Mary Kay and BayBlissPRO while Julie checked out Rica Swimwear’s new collection and had some sweet treats by Tasti D-lite. Julie later celebrated her own design collaboration with Basta Surf at Soho Beach House and hosted a party at SET nightclub.
The Oakley Spring 2013 Swim Show hosted by Trimera Group sizzled on Sunday night at Hyde Beach in Miami. The models, including Oakley surf star Erica Hosseini, heated up the runway in the lastest and greatest from Oakley Swim and UNO de 50 jewelry while DJ Nick Cannon spun the tunes for the party. Also joining the fun with the bevy of swimsuit models was legendary rapper Lil Jon.
