Stars Put a Good Face on MAC AIDS Fund
February 6, 2004
Christina Aguilera, Chloe Sevigny, Boy George, Missy Elliott and Linda Evangelista are the new faces of MAC cosmetics' Viva Glam campaign, marking the tenth anniversary of the MAC AIDS Fund, which began in 1994 with spokesperson RuPaul. The fund has raised more than $32 million for HIV/AIDS patients. All proceeds from Viva Glam V pink lipstick ($14) and lip gloss ($13.50) go to the fund. Print ads featuring the celebrities will appear next week. Boy George said he was thrilled to take part in the campaign. "I've been wearing makeup since I was 14 years old," he said. "I feel it was about time I was rewarded." George added that the combination of an AIDS benefit and glamour is a natural one: "AIDS has affected the fashion industry probably more than any other industry."Adapted from:
