In anticipation of World Food Day on October 16, Michael Kors has unveiled a host of exciting initiatives to support the 5th anniversary of Watch Hunger Stop, the brand’s vital, annual campaign to fight global hunger. The brand’s partner in the effort is the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), and all funds raised support WFP’s school meals program. Michael Kors is raising funds by selling limited-edition t-shirts, sunglasses, and watches for the Watch Hunger Stop Campaign.
Michael Kors will continue its partnership with actress, author, entrepreneur and longtime-supporter, Kate Hudson, who will once again lend her talents to support the cause. “There’s something so simple but so deeply important about the work that the World Food Programme does,” says Hudson. “It is not just that [WFP] feeds children—though they do that and it’s incredible. They also work to support families and education and local economies, working towards a bigger picture that enables communities, and ultimately countries, to get back on their feet. I really do believe that if we work together at this, we will see an end to world hunger.”

In an age of selfies and constant social media sharing, a growing number of teenagers are undergoing plastic surgery to alter their appearance. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) about 229,000 cosmetic procedures were performed on patients aged 13 to 19 in 2017. Currently, teenagers account for about four percent of all cosmetic surgery procedures, with the most common procedures among teens being nose reshaping, male breast reduction and ear surgery. Adolescents also account for a small percentage of total nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, such as laser hair removal, skin resurfacing and Botox injections.
“While a rhinoplasty or ear surgery can be performed safely by a board-certified surgeon and are, in many cases, appropriate for an adolescent, other cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction or injectables are typically not recommended for minors for several reasons, including lack of research,” said Dallas board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich. “It’s concerning that there has been a surge in the use of injectables in young patients to achieve augmented cheeks and lips when there is no evidence that these procedures are safe for adolescents.” Read more of this story »
