Julia Roberts has teamed up with Giorgio Armani to design a bracelet to sell for World AIDS Day.
A senior and talented actress who has to juggle her acting career with her becoming a mother of three, Julia Roberts sticks to be a professional in her field by doing everything in the biggest way possible. Doing her best on screen, the movie beauty is attempting a career reinvention by turning bracelet designer for social issue.
Noted Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani announced Tuesday November 20th that he has teamed up with the "Pretty Woman" star, who often wore his gowns to movie ceremonies and is his long-term friend, to design a bracelet to sell for World AIDS Day, only to mark his first time to have ever worked with another name on a project.
The bracelet Julia has designed, bohemian-style leather ones, come in red for women and brown for men. The bracelets feature an imprint of a "tree of life" with the words "Revolution-Evolution-Devotion" with the initials 'JR' on the inside. The collection is 175 U.S. dollars for women and 195 dollars for men, and will go on sale at emporioarmani.com on World AIDS Day on December 1st and be available in stores from February 1st next year.
Proceeds from the selling of the bracelet will benefit (PRODUCT) RED, the business initiative started by U2 front man Bono and Bobby Shriver to help combat HIV/AIDS in Africa.
"Julia has helped to create a beautiful accessory for both women and men, which will also be a visible reminder of the part we can all play in fighting AIDS in Africa," so Armani said about his working together with Julia.
