blasblog: stripping down for charity
Noot Seear://www.style.com/fashionshows/designerdirectory/VWESTWOOD/seasons/">Vivienne Westwood, Alexander Wang, Elise Øverland, and Marchesa. Such, ahem, naked ambition definitely begat a certain debate: Are you here for the philanthropy, in the form of Rose Charities, a volunteer-based organization that tackles poverty both in the U.S. and in countries like Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam? Or are you here for the ladies? For Brendan Shanahan, the former Rangers wingman, it was the former—or at least that’s what he told us. “I explained to my children as I put them to bed that Daddy was going to raise money for a great organization,” he grinned. The fashion photographer Magnus Unnar was more candid: “I’m here for the booze and the babes.” Regardless of the intentions, the end result—like when Seear stripped out of her first look and down to her Kiki de Montparnasse knickers to the tune of $2,500—was more money for those in need. “And that’s all that matters,” the hostess smiled.
