Yes, Adriana Lima is a stunning supermodel. And yes, in the above photo she’s wearing a gorgeous scarf and little else.
But the most impressive part about the picture isn’t Adriana’s legs or the stark contrast of color against a black background — it’s the AH-mazing cause the scarf represents!
The Victoria’s Secret angel posed for this pic to help launch the I Am Haiti scarves project in partnership with Nomad Two Worlds, which aims to build a sustainable community and secure future for youth in Haiti.
You can buy a luxurious cashmere scarf like the one Adriana’s wearing on NomadTwoWorlds.com, or, if red isn’t your thing, there are five other designs to choose from.
Each meaningful masterpiece costs $120.00 and was designed by Haitian children of the Maranatha School and Orphanage. 100% of the profits will go to their support — a generosity that's always in style!
Check out the different designs (below)!

She really is ageless!
Rachel Weisz looks absolutely amazing on the cover of British Vogue's July issue.
For the colorful cover shot, the The Bourne Legacy actress was photographed by Alasdair McLellan in a blue Celine cashmere jumper.
We love Rachel's natural look, but doesn't this cover scream fall rather than summer? Who wears a cashmere sweater in July!?
Also, is it just us or does her hand look really small and awkward???

Up until last fall Claudia Schiffer was one of the few remaining supers that hadn't slapped her name onto a clothing line — and now we know why!
The 40 year old told Vogue:
"Over the years a lot of companies have said, 'Please give us your name, endorse our product'. I've said no to so many things that were very lucrative but I couldn't put my name to something I didn't really love."
After years of waiting, Claudia finally decided her 'love' was cashmere and teamed up with Germany's Iris von Arnim on a collection suitable for a mother on the go.
Schiffer's line includes "sweaters that don't reveal your bra and dresses that are short enough to be sexy while long enough to remain modest when picking up a small child".
The mother of 3 adds:
"I just want some throw-on pieces where you don't have to worry about your bra strap showing. All I want is a big sweater. It's all based on my everyday life - what I, as a working mom want."
Claudia's self-named line debuts next season on net-a-porter.com and will range in price from $400 - $2,040.

Elton John sure knows how to shop!
On Christmas Eve, the new proud poppa stopped by Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills to pick up some last minute gifts.
Elton ended up spending $30,000 on 12 cashmere robes, which held up the line at the cash register.
According to a holiday shopper, the singer politely turned around to the customers behind him and said: "I apologize for holding the queue up. I'll be right out in a moment."
And guess what? They didn't mind at all!
A woman waiting in line leaped at the opportunity to have a convo with Elton, saying: "No, take your time. It's a pleasure to watch someone shop like that. I only wish I could."
Her husband adding: "Believe me, she tries. That's why I'm chaperoning this trip here."

We knew she couldn't keep quiet for long.
Claudia Schiffer has finally revealed that her clothing line will be all about cashmere.
The supermodel is teaming up with German cashmere company Iris von Arnim for the capsule collection, which will be called Claudia Schiffer.
Claudia hasn't released the price points for her eponymous collection, but considering it's cashmere it won't be cheap.
