Alek Wek Goes Red with Diptyque
Since February 5th is "Go Red for Women" Day (a movement founded by the American Heart Association to spread heart disease awareness), we're celebrating by burning Diptyque's bright red Rooibos Vanilla Candle ($68), a totally addictive, sensual blend of rose-scented African Rooibos Tea, Madagascar Vanilla and fair trade Indian Vanilla. Diptyque joined forced with the (RED) charity and supermodel Alec Wek to launch the brand new, limited edition candle, whose proceeds go towards helping Africans living with HIV. "I'm proud to support (RED) and their new partnership with Diptyque," Wek told British Vogue at the London launch party on January 28th. "The candle is a beautiful reflection of the hope that (RED) and Diptyque will bring to people's lives around the world."
