BRIGHT IDEA: Alek Wek hosted a cocktail party Wednesday night in Paris to fete the limited edition candle created by (Red) and Diptyque. Ten percent of the money generated from the 42 euro, or $58.70 at current exchange, candle will go to (Red), whose proceeds benefit the fight against AIDS in Africa. Wek joined (Red) International chief executive officer Seb Bishop and Diptyque executive director Fabienne Mauny, among a host of guests at the event held in the Maison de l’Afrique. “When this project came up, I couldn’t help but want to come on board,” said Wek, who fled her native Sudan as a young girl. Meanwhile, Wek’s days are chockablock with activities including working with the U.S. Committee for Refugees’ Advisory Council and designing her handbag collection. She said she’d recently wrapped up a shoot in Amsterdam for German Glamour, as well.
