joined Avon chairman and CEO Andrea Jung to celebrate the company’s 125th anniversary in Warsaw, Poland on June 14 and then in Moscow, Russia on June 16, during the 16-city Avon Believe World Tour.

At each event, Jung and Witherspoon presented a grant of $60,000 to a local organization to continue its work to support domestic violence victims. In Warsaw, the grant was made to Blue Line; in Moscow, the grant went to ANNA, the National Center for the Prevention of Violence in Russia.

The grants were made as part of the new $2 million Avon Global Believe Fund created to help support women’s domestic violence shelters and agencies in each of the 16 cities on the Avon Believe World Tour.

OPI Launches Miss Universe Collection

Reigning Miss USA Rima Fakih, stylist Michael Boychuck and reigning Miss Universe Ximena Navarrete unveil four new limited edition nail lacquers for Miss Universe by OPI.

At the unveiling of its new Miss Universe by OPI shade collection, 51 Miss USA contestants—along with reigning Miss USA Rima Fakih and reigning Miss Universe Ximena Navarrete—joined Miss USA 2007 Rachel Smith (host of ABC’s “On the Red Carpet”) at Color, A Salon by Michael Boychuck at Caesars Palace Las Vegas.

Caesars Palace lead mixologist Eddie Perales and executive chef Charles Wilson created cocktails and hors d’oeuvres themed to correspond with each of the four new shades—Congeniality Is My Middle Name (berry-wine shimmer); It’s My Year (champagne-rose); Swimsuit...Nailed It! (vibrant shiny-blue bikini); and Crown Me Already! (silver sparkle).

“Having the Miss USA contestants pull off their gloves to reveal the Miss Universe lacquers was the perfect way to launch such show-stopping shades,” said Suzi Weiss-Fisch- mann, OPI executive vice president and artistic director.
