Celebrities came out in full force Monday night in New York City to help Stuart Weitzman celebrate his association with Pencils of Promise.
The partnership supports Pencils of Promise’s mission to create schools, programs and global communities around the common goal of education for all. Weitzman will specifically fund the building of three schools — one each in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos.
Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and Joan Smalls were in attendance for the private dinner held at Sadelle’s.
To benefit the cause, Weitzman has created an exclusive yellow suede version of the NearlyNude block-heel sandal, which Gigi Hadid and Smalls wore Monday.
It’s no surprise Gigi Hadid and Smalls made an appearance to support the designer. The models are featured in the brand’s spring ’16 ad campaign, in which they’re shown from the side sans wardrobe — with the exception of Weitzman’s NearlyNude sandals.
The night’s guests also included Emmy Rossum, Solange Knowles and Olivia Culpa — all wearing the limited-edition Pencils of Promise exclusive sandal — along with Olivia Palermo, Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Devon Windsor.
The exclusive shoes retail for $398 and are available at stuartweitzman.com and at various Stuart Weitzman flagship boutiques. Proceeds from sales of these NearlyNudes will benefit the building of the three schools. To date, PoP has built more than 330 schools and provided access to education to more than 30,000 students.
