Although fashion month has been in full swing across the pond, big things are still happening in New York—most notably, back-to-back events of the do-good variety. With musical acts including Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Beyonce, the Global Citizen Festival attracted 60,000 attendees—from prolific politicians to general concert-loving folk—and resulted in millions of social media posts to bring awareness to human rights issues. Following that, the UN Social Good Summit kicked off with such panelists as Victoria Beckham, discussing the impact of modern technology on a range of global issues. A number of Hollywood’s heavy hitters turned out to support these worthy causes, leveraging their widespread influence to spotlight humanitarian initiatives. Here, some of the stylish advocates that who prove that smart is always sexy.
