Putting My Breast Foot Forward

{This is me doing good for the Susan G. Komen foundation through the Second Annual Pink Ribbon Project}

Before my jaunt to New York Fashion Week, I had the breast time (pun intended) shooting the Second Annual Pink Ribbon Project. I had the good fortune of collaborating with SpinHouse PR’s  Michelle Fonticiella, photographer Laura Coppelman, hair and makeup ninja Sandy Lee and artist Lebo for the super-duper-top-secret photo campaign benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure Miami. Myself, alongside 9 other women were photographed (using 750 yards of pink ribbon no less!) for the campaign. The pinkalicious pictures will be unveiled on Thursday, October 4 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Cafeina in Wynwood. All proceeds from the evening will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and tix are $20. Please come and help us stick it to cancer.

{Um, when else is it perfectly okay for a hot Cuban male to paint my chest? Exactly.}
