The Art of Giving
This time of the year I’m especially overwhelmed with gratitude for my family, friends and especially to God. Paying homage to gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it, so in the spirit of benevolence our December issue is dedicated to the Art of Giving. There is nothing wrong for coveting a present from art deco jewelry to Hermes Birkin bags, but life is all about the balance of give and get.
From Kerry Washington, Eva Langoria, Nicole Richie and many more, we’ve asked celebrities and taste-makers to share with us their charities of choice in the hope that you might find one that speaks to you. Check out our effortlessly chic Guest Editor Aerin Lauder's fave holiday entertaining tips and hair guru Serge Normant’s advice on mastering the art of disheveled, holiday, sexy tresses.
I truly believe that I am “African & American” hence why I support the global and local. My favorite global charity is Raise Hope for Congo and here at home in NYC I’m deeply touched by “Letters to Santa” which makes a “wish” come true for a child! Remember, in the universe, what you give is what you get.
