Guess chief executive officer and vice chairman Paul Marciano’s 17-year-old daughter Ella has designed a bracelet to support Save the Children‘s humanitarian efforts in East Africa. To mark the launch of the beaded cord bracelet, which hit Guess stores and online yesterday, the American clothing line and Marie Claire invited a mix of celebrities and bloggers to their Beverly Hills boutique for an intimate dinner personally prepared by none other than Wolfgang Puck. Before the dinner, the renowned chef (pictured) gave an adorable and heartwarming speech, which you can read a snippet of after the jump.
Guests like actress Emma Roberts and blogger Julie Sarinana of Sincerely Jules looked on as Puck revealed his close connection to Save the Children’s cause: "When I was a little boy in Austria, we didn’t have very much. I remember the first time I was served corn flakes, I thought it was the most amazing tasting thing! I will never forget that memory and the way it made me feel. We should do the same for these children and provide them with food, water, and anything else they need to live a better life. They will never forget it."
Guess is donating $20 of every sale of the One Love Charity Bracelet to the charity, which will directly aid children affected by the drought in East Africa and future emergencies. Buy the bracelet here.
