Last night, the super-chic and classy Jessica Stam hosted an event to benefit Charity. The simply named organization seeks to raise funds and awareness to educate the world about global issues concerning poverty. In its first initiative called Charity: Water, they are selling $20 bottles of water. And while that might seem like a hefty price tag for a simple glass of H20, 100 percent of all profit goes directly to building freshwater wells and supplying clean water to impoverished communities in Africa.
GlamScene was able to chat briefly with Ms. Stam about her involvement. We also touched on holiday plans, fashion favorites, and New Year’s resolutions…
How did you become involved with this organization?
Well, a friend introduced me [to the organization] just over a year ago, so he told me a little bit about the event, and it was something that I believed in, and that’s how I got involved.
What would you say to people who want to get involved? How can they help out and learn more?
You know the Internet is always a great resource. If you are passionate and you want to get involved and help out – you know research in that way is always a good start.
What are you wearing?
Vintage Halston and the shoes are Christina Louboutins.
When it comes to your attire, what comes first fashion or comfort?
Comfort. These are my favorite fancy shoes. I’m usually a sneakers, jeans, and tee-shirt, everyday [kind of girl].
What’s your New Year’s resolution?
My New Year’s resolution? I don’t actually have a New Year’s resolution. I’ve never really had one stick before.
What are your plans for this holiday season?
I’m going to Canada to be with my family.
Anything especially fabulous on your holiday wish-list?
You know, I just want to see my family and have some down time.
What’s your favorite seasonal tradition?
Giving presents to my little brothers.
Welcome to our very first installment of Model of the Week. I've written a five question interview that I have conducted with several models to share with you. The questions are both fun and beauty-related and will always stay the same. I can't wait to hear what you think of this new feature!
Here's a little history on the gorgeous Jessica Stam. She was born in Kincardine, Ontario, Canada on April 23rd, 1983 and was discovered in a coffee shop on her way home from an amusement park.
Known for her amazing cat-like blue eyes and long lashes, Jessica also happens to be super sweet, approachable and down-to-earth.
