Following her announcement that she was going to design clothes for a British children’s charity, Gwyneth Paltrow is at it again. This time, the 36-year-old star has created a bikini as part of the Lilly Pulitzer Colorful Cause: Celebrity Designer Program, supporting The EB Medical Research Foundation.
As part of Lily Pulitzer’s 50th anniversary, the company has joined with nine actresses to celebrate style and purpose. Celebrities such as Brooke Shields, Debra Messing, Marcia Cross, Angie Harmon, Bridget Moynahan, Catherine Bell, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Garcelle Beauvais-Nilson have joined the program to create limited edition prints for designs for “mommy-and-me” looks for both daughters and sons.
Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a genetic condition that causes skin and linings to break and blister at the slightest touch. Sufferers battle daily with fluid loss and infection of the open wounds. In worst cases, they’ll die of skin cancer before the age of 40, many in infancy.
The designs will be available very shortly from Lily Pulitzer stores and online. For a sneak peek at the designs, click here.
