Montblanc and UNICEF teamed up to host a benefit Friday night at Sotheby's in New York City to announce their plans to auction off a series of celebrity portraits during their World Exhibition Tour of the Montblanc & Signature International Cultural and Charitable Photo Project to support UNICEF in September. Familiar art patrons were in attendance to view the portraits including The Real (overly dramatic) Housewives of New York Bethenny Frankel and LuAnn deLesseps, along with designer Erin Fetherston, artist Jeff Koons, Emma Snowdon-Jones, and Kristian Laliberte spotted in conversation with Montblanc CEO Lutz Bethge.
The photo project honors the involvement of 12 actresses and their efforts to support UNICEF's fight against inadequate education with portraits by Roger Moenks including Sienna Miller, Eva Longoria, Christina Ricci, Emily Blunt, Marcia Cross, Andie MacDowell, Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, and Mira Sorvino. The portraits will be on display through May 13th before being auctioned off in London and Los Angeles.
