SO EMOTIONAL: There was so much love in the room at the Cartier Love Day press conference on Thursday morning that several people even burst into tears. “Thank God for waterproof mascara,” said Eva Mendes, who was overcome with emotion in a Michael Kors sheath when discussing her work with The Art of Elysium, an organization that encourages working actors, artists and musicians to voluntarily dedicate their time and talents to children battling serious medical conditions. “It’s so emotional to see the growth and results [of the children],” she added. Mendes is Cartier’s Love Charity Ambassador for The Art of Elysium. Cartier North America president and chief executive Frédéric de Narp and the charity’s founder Jennifer Howell were on hand, as well, to unveil a new Love Charity bracelet that went on sale Thursday benefiting 24 chosen charities, including The Art of Elysium. In the past three years Cartier North America has donated more than $4.5 million to 24 global charities. The new silk cord and rose gold bracelet comes in myriad colors corresponding to the respective charity. It sells for $700, and $150 from the sale of each will benefit the charity.
