LUNCH LADIES: Lunch boxes emblazoned with superheroes may be a dime-a-dozen, but lunch boxes covered with supermodels are perhaps a bit harder to come by. Partygoers at this year’s Gourmet magazine sponsored “Lunchbox Auction,” will have the chance to take home such a collectible — thanks to Kelly Klein. Called “The Superbox,” the elementary school staple is decorated with Polaroid pictures of Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, taken by Klein. “I thought it would be beautiful to put all the supermodels that I have shot over the years all over this box,” explained the photographer. Klein is one of more than 50 bold-facers and brands — including Cameron Diaz, Lanvin, Diane von Furstenberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mike Meyers and Eva Mendez — to fashion a container for the Dec. 11 bash, held this year at Milk Studios.
Those unable to make it to the festivities can place bids for the boxes online — at thelunchboxauction.org — until Dec. 18. Proceeds will benefit hunger relief organizations the Food Bank for New York City and The Lunchbox Fund of South Africa.
