She’s preggers and proud, and Adriana Lima is making history with her appearance in the 2013 Pirelli calendar.
The Victoria’s Secret stunner has become the first visibly-pregnant woman to appear in the company’s calendar, showing off her baby bump in a sleeveless black shirt.
Under the direction of Steve McCurry, Adriana covers her modesty while exposing her midsection as a way of representing fabulous expecting ladies everywhere.
In addition to Lima, the 2013 Pirelli calendar will also include Elisa Sednaoui, Petra Nemcova, Liya Kebede, Kyleigh Kuhn, and Isabeli Fontana.
Among the countless swanky soirees taking place in southern France over the weekend, the Vanity Fair and Gucci Party once again drew an impressive guest list on Saturday night (May 19).
The annual Cannes Film Festival fete was held at the Hotel Du Cap in Antibes, with well-dressed couples such as Oscar-winning director Michel Hazanavicius and his actress wife Berenice Bejo schmoozing with Gucci clad Jennifer Connelly and her “A Beautiful Mind” actor mate Paul Bettany.
Other loved-up pair roaming the grounds included Salma Hayek and Francois Henri Pinault; Chris Pine and his model sweetheart Dominique Piek; and big screen vets Robert De Niro (with Grace Hightower) and Alec Baldwin (with Hilaria Thomas).
Rounding out the star power at the Vanity Fair and Gucci Party were Naomi Watts, who dined alongside Jeffrey Katzenberg, as well as Lily Cole, Petra Nemcova, Gemma Arterton, James Woods, Bret Ratner, Alexander Payne, Jemima Khan and Paz Vega.
Two years removed from the catastrophic earthquake which ravaged the Caribbean country, Haiti relief continues to be a focus for numerous Hollywood stars.
Marking the second anniversary of the devastating events, stars such as Sean Penn, Kim Kardashian, Orlando Bloom and Hilary Swank gathered at the Montage Hotel in Los Angeles for a Cinema for Peace Haiti relief fundraising event.
With raised cash going to Penn’s J/P Haitian Relief Organization, other famous faces showing their support included Mel Gibson, Petra Nemcova, Felicity Jones and Soleil Moon Frye.
Talking with press about what it is that Haiti needs most right now, Soleil opined, “A true chance at rebuilding. Also, assistance with the rubble removal is key. People can’t start rebuilding until the rubble is gone. The country also needs medical and educational support. All of the everyday things we take for granted — brushing our teeth, drinking clean water, taking a bath or shower, having a meal to eat — these are the privileges that few Haitians enjoy.”
Miss Frye added, “It’s also important to give that support in a way that honors their dignity, helping them stand on their own two feet. Whether helping in little or big ways, every effort counts. It can be a card that touches a child’s life, a $5 donation or even a trip down to Haiti to volunteer. But do your homework first. Know where the money is going. I know first-hand that the check I write to J/P HRO will be used to support their incredible work.”
