Under the sub-heading "Get Informed, Get Inspired and Get Going!" the book will address issues such as poverty, homelessness, hunger, access to education, gender equality, health, climate change and endangered species, Clinton and Penguin announced.

In fact, jeweler Chopard thought the film festival was so key to its strategy, it apparently wrote checks totaling over $1 million to ensure that 11 stars, like Julianne Moore and Lupita Nyong’o, would wear the company’s baubles during the festivities.

Sasha Fierce! Sasha Pivovarova’s 23 Best Runway Moments (Versace Spring 2010, Photo: Maria Valentino) Sasha Pivovarova’s beauty is a given, but it’s her intensity on the runway that made her a star. Since debuting on Prada’s Fall catwalk back in 2005, Pivovarova has made a name for herself by playing up the spooky side of her alien looks and putting those wide eyes and sunken cheekbones to good use in theatrical shows for the biggest names in fashion. Though she’s malleable enough to take on any character a designer can dream up, Pivovarova is at her best when she’s playing peculiar for iconoclasts like John Galliano or Alexander McQueen.
