Unfortunately James who is pictured in the flyer, the son of Betty Choi and Craig Leonard; proprietor of the NYC, Miami and Chicago G-STAR stores, has Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects over 30,000 people who suffer with this illness in the US and over 10 million people who carry one of the known defective genes whether they know it or not. It effects the lungs and the digestive system which of course are two of the most important parts of our lives; breathing and eating.
25 years ago people with CF rarely made it into their 20’s, but today with new therapies and drugs life expectancy averages closer to 40 yrs and is improving every year. This amazing statistic has been made possible by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s relentless efforts. Over 90% of all money collected goes directly to this funding. By donating you will be directly responsible for helping improve the lives and the futures of children such as James.
The fundraiser will be a fun night with DJs Kay Mel & Seth Dynomite. For a minimum of $10, a donation ticket is purchasable at: G-STAR Stores in NYC, Miami, & Chicago or Bowery Electric Thursday May 19 7:30-11:30 or by direct donation at: http://www.cff.org/great_strides/bettychoi

HauteLook is having a Denim Unites for Peace charity sale event beginning tomorrow (Wednesday, May 18) until the 20th. Twelve top denim brands will come together by offering men’s and women’s denim discounted up to 60% off with 100% of the proceeds to benefit Falling Whistles, a campaign for peace in Congo.
PROJECT and HauteLook united the industry’s best denim brands to offer HauteLook members and consumers the latest in men’s and women’s denim from J Brand, AG Jeans, Current/Elliott, Joe’s Jeans, True Religion, Hudson, Citizens of Humanity, Acne, Nudie, Kasil, 7 for All Mankind and Siwy. No product will exceed $100 either. This event provides a unique opportunity for consumers to participate in directly raising money and awareness for an amazing initiative.
An inspiring grass roots organization, Falling Whistles raises money to rehabilitate women and children in Congo, where the deadliest war of our time has killed 6.9 million people to date, thousands of women are raped each month and countless children are forced onto the front lines of battle armed with nothing but a whistle – turning them into human shields. Sign up to HauteLook here and get ready to shop this huge event tomorrow!
A very healthy looking and pregnant Jessica Alba stopped by a salon for a quick manicure and pedicure yesterday afternoon in Beverly Hills, California. I think Jess has to be my favourite pregnant celeb, purely because she still wears her denim and she still looks amazing, along with Victoria Beckham.
Jess chose to wear her Mama J by J Brand Lovestory flared jeans in Ink, which we saw her wearing last time, but this time she paired them with a white shirt, a coral scarf and a tan studded bag. I definitely like this outfit the most compared to last time, they are both nice but this one is more fun! Buy J Brand jeans at Singer22.com.

Kate Bosworth was spotted having lunch at Joans on Third in West Hollywood in Los Angeles, California yesterday. She chose to wear her MiH LDN Boy Cropped jeans in Hickory, which she was seen in before. This look is slightly different to the last though, she just has different shoes and a lighter sweater.
I do love Kate’s style, it always reminds me of a vintage and dated look but it works so well for her. I can’t imagine her in any different clothes to the style she wears actually, she is just perfectly suited to this type of look. I think this is the 3rd time we have spotted Kate in these jeans, it’s nice that she keeps bringing them back out, even after it’s been a while! Buy these jeans at MiH for ┬ú210.
