Alicia Keys is looking gorgeous in support of a great cause! The musician teamed up with designer Stella McCartney for a campaign to raise breast cancer awareness and encourage women to get checked regularly to stay healthy. For McCartney and Keys, the cause is a very personal one. Keys also lost her mother to breast cancer, which she reveals in a video clip alongside McCartney.
In the video clip, the singer and the designer share an intimate conversation about how the disease has touched their lives and why they’re fighting for better care. This year specifically highlights inequalities in access to early detection programs and awareness, and will help to support the Memorial Sloan Kettering Breast Examination Center of Harlem, which is where Alicia was born and raised.
To help raise awareness about the importance of prevention, detection, and equal access to care, designer Stella McCartney has created a limited-edition Ophelia Whistling lingerie set to celebrate what she calls “femininity in the face of severity,”. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the lingerie will benefit both the Linda McCartney Centre, a breast-cancer treatment facility in Liverpool, England, and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Breast Examination Center of Harlem, an outreach program that offers the local community free screenings, including mammograms, ultrasounds, and MRIs
