I was lucky enough to start my day by having breakfast with Courteney Cox. No, really! This morning, she spoke on behalf of Kinerase, the skincare line that she is the face of, to a group of editors. After hearing all about their new products (if they make me look like Courteney, sign me up! She looks amazing in person), she showed us a film about EB, a skin disease that afflicts kids (victims are often known as “butterfly children”). The actress has become very involved with raising money to fund the EB Medical Research Foundation — she has even gotten Kinerase involved in donating a percentage of their sales to the charity.
And a few hours later, after changing from her beautiful lace blouse and pinstriped skirt into a stunning satin dress, she was joined at a press conference by designer Nicole Miller, to announce a limited edition bag that will contribute 10% of the proceeds to the EB Foundation (in conjuction with Kinerase again). In addition, they will be sending a version of the bags out to celebs to decorate, which will be auctioned off later in the year with a 100% of the proceeds going to the the charity. Wonder if Courteney’s best friend Jennifer Aniston will get out her glue gun?
Courteney continued on to another reception for the brand, but then her hectic day was over! But don’t expect to see her at any fashion shows or parties tonight — it is hubby David Arquette’s birthday, and the night is promised to him! — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg
