Christina Applegate speaks out for Stand up to Cancer and Cancer Treatment Centers’ new campaign

Actress Christina Applegate is the spokeswoman for the new Stand up to Cancer and Cancer Treatment Centers of America public awareness campaign.
   Applegate herself is a cancer survivor, who stresses the importance of having a strong support system. ‘It was a sense of community that helped me, as well as many others, get through a time that is never easy; and why I am so proud to join Stand up to Cancer and Cancer Treatment Centers of America on this campaign. Each of us has the power to support and fight,’ she said in a release.
   The campaign is entitled When You Don’t Know What to Say, Stand up, highlighting how family and friends can provide support to a loved one diagnosed with cancer.
   The central message is, ‘When someone you love is diagnosed with cancer, you have the power to help. There are many ways you can stand up and show that you care.’
   Applegate had chosen to have both her breasts removed in a prophylactic double mastectomy, although cancerous lumps were only found in one. She credits MRI testing for detecting the tumours early and allowing her to seek early treatment.
   One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes, according to the two groups. Those in support positions can visit showthatyoucare.org, with tips on how to support those newly diagnosed with cancer. They can also follow Stand up to Cancer on Facebook and Twitter.

News round-up: letter from Marrakech teased; Jessica Alba favours Jane Iredale; our road tests

Above Paula Sweet photographs exclusively in Morocco for Lucire: the secrets of Berber Saffron Tea. From left to right, Amanjena GM Gabriel Louzada, Paula Sweet, Abdelhadi.

In an upcoming edition of Lucire: letter from Marrakech. An exclusive report from travel editor Stanley Moss which includes a private visit behind closed doors at the original home of Yves Saint Laurent in the Medina, then the lost recipe for saffron tea, a Berber delicacy prepared for our readers at Amanjena in Marrakech.
   In beauty news, Jessica Alba has publicly declared her love of Jane Iredale’s real gold shimmer powder in OK. Says Alba, ‘If I’m going to show some leg, I’ll mix a little into my body lotion too. It creates a subtle shimmer that makes cellulite lumps and bumps a tad less noticeable.’ The powder is the headline product commemorating the brand’s 20th anniversary year. And they really mean ‘real gold': it contains 24 ct gold leaf and mica, and it’s available alongside silver and bronze shimmers in a limited-edition Jane’s Signature Gilded Collection tin (£32). The gold and silver can be used on top of the cheekbones as a highlight, while the bronze can be applied over the body.
   Meanwhile, publisher Jack Yan has been testing more cars in the ‘Living’ section in Lucire. There’s the BMW 116i here, a real driver’s car for those seeking something small, while he dons his halo and channels his Simon Templar in his test drive of the Volvo S60 T6 AWD R Design Polestar.

Sponsored video: Moroccanoil wants to hear your stories that are #inspiredbywomen

A Lucire special promotion


Lucire has featured Moroccanoil for years—we like to think we were one of the insiders that let readers know of this beauty range from Canada first.
   Moroccanoil is known for its luxury hair care approach, with performance-driven formulas that help nourish and restore hair to a natural, silky finish. With modern environmental factors conspiring to hurt hair, Moroccanoil’s light formula helps reverse those adverse effects.
   When Moroccanoil first started, oil treatments for hair were rare, but founder Carmen Tal persisted, and the range has caught the attention of celebrities and hair professionals around the world.
   Last month, Moroccanoil appointed its first ambassador, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who began gracing our pages at roughly the same time as the oil treatments. It’s a great campaign, because we finally get to see the real Huntington-Whiteley on a wider scale—she’s far more articulate and fun than you might expect—and it taps in to an idea that everyone will find familiar.
   The campaign asks viewers to create a brief video, hashtagged #inspiredbywomen, telling the world which woman has inspired them, sharing their stories. There are no gimmicks or prizes: the company wants to get these stories out and begins with its own six women, chosen by Tal herself, in a video series directed by Bryce Dallas Howard.
   Huntington-Whiteley is one of the six, joined by Chrissy Beckles (who literally fights for abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico, by going into the boxing ring to raise funds through charity bouts), Rebecca Welsh (whose HALO Foundation provides underprivileged children a chance to unlock their creativity), Kavita Shukla (whose FreshPaper venture has revolutionized food storage in 35 countries), Allyson Ahlstrom (who created Threads for Teens, a free boutique serving at-risk girls), and Jessica Matthews (who invented the Soccket, a soccer ball that creates electrical energy).
   Says Tal, ‘Inspiration is about feeling empowered. If we can empower women, the sky’s the limit.’

Sarah Michelle Gellar is the New Zealand judge and ambassador for Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year.
   Gellar, best known for her role in Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, and who made a notable impression in last year’s The Crazy Ones—Lucire’s favourite US sitcom of ’13—alongside the late Robin Williams, joins a panel of judges including designer Alex Perry, TV host Jeremy Corbett, and Specsavers’ style ambassador Pip Edwards.
   The competition is a search for the country’s most stylish spectacle-wearer, celebrating confidence and the love of glasses.
   â€˜I can’t wait to see New Zealanders stylish entries and help choose a winner,’ said Gellar in a release. ‘As an actress and a glasses-wearer myself, I know how important it is to be proud of your style and to love your frames. I like to look at glasses as an extension of individual style, a way to express a part of your personality that you can have fun with.’
   The winner receives an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Hollywood, including NZ$1,000 spending money, and a new wardrobe of designer glasses from Specsavers.
   Six finalists will each win a trip to Auckland to meet Corbett and a gift bag, including a voucher for an item from Fairley jewellery and two pairs of designer glasses from Specsavers.
   Entrants are asked to submit selfies to the 2014 Spectacle Wearer of the Year website, at loveglasses.specsavers.co.nz.
   Christina Hendricks had previously served as a Specsavers ambassador.

Mindfood Style launches Monday in New Zealand

As Lucire celebrates its 17th anniversary on October 20, another New Zealand name will launch a fashion title. Mindfood Style is set to challenge offerings from large groups such as Germany’s Bauer (Fashion Quarterly) and others.
   Mindfood Style will appear on newsstands with a 350 pp. inaugural issue. Issue one will feature a 36 pp. spring–summer 2015 runway report pull-out. Rose McIver (The Lovely Bones) is its first cover girl.
   The masthead adopts a familiar design theme for fashion titles, with a modern typeface, but with the first three letters in Style subtly merging into each other. Bauer Bodoni appears on the cover as Mindfood Style’s serif family choice. The overall effect is tasteful and minimalist, with Mindfood Style eschewing the messy, multiple headlines of other titles in this sector.
   The magazine will publish twice a year, with spring–summer and autumn–winter numbers, and will have its own website at the mindfood.com domain. There will be further support on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, and a weekly newsletter.

Actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie can now add the letters GCMG after her name, after receiving an honour at Buckingham Palace from HM Queen Elizabeth II.
   During her audience with the Queen, Jolie was presented with the insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George.
   The Queen awarded Jolie the honour from the 1844 room at the palace, for her work fighting sexual violence and for services to UK foreign policy.
   Jolie cannot be addressed as Dame, being a US citizen.
   Jolie chose to wear Ralph & Russo to the Palace. She wore a dove grey, wool crepe peplum jacket and pencil skirt with cinching belt and silk chiffon bow neck tie, inspired by a tailored piece from their spring–summer 2014 couture collection.
   She was recognized in the Diplomatic Service and Overseas Birthday 2014 honours’ list.
   Jolie’s husband Brad Pitt and their six children were present. Buckingham Palace said Jolie spent 20 minutes with the Queen.

H&M collaborates with Kate Mara and Johnny Wujek on New York stores’ windows

Hennes & Mauritz

Hennes & Mauritz, with its flagship Fifth Avenue store open in New York alongside other locations in the city, is collaborating with actress Kate Mara (Fantastic Four) and stylist Johnny Wujek to kick off Fashion Week there.
   Mara and Wujek will curate windows in nine H&M New York stores, and introduce their picks in select stores in the US, as well as online.
   On September 4, they will meet fashion students at the Fifth Avenue store for a panel discussion, as the first event of Fashion Week. It also marks the launch of the H&M Studio range for autumn–winter 2014–15.
   The pair are close friends and H&M says the windows will reflect their personalities: Mara with a chic, approachable sensibility, and Wujek with bold and quirky styles.
   Their inspiration has come from black-and-white photography of New York’s cityscape, and its light projections, bridges and building windows.
   â€˜It was a no-brainer for us to work together on this as we both have a true appreciation for accessible high fashion and our favorite city of New York,’ said Mara in a release.
   Wujek added, ‘Immediately I said yes to work on this incredibly creative project with H&M and Kate. H&M is a pioneer in the field of fashion and being asked to creative-direct their store windows for the opening of New York Fashion Week was my Mannequin dream come true—one of my favourite movies growing up. I can’t wait for people to walk by and see the beauty we make in the H&M windows.’
