Lauren Bush Lauren, the model-turned-fashion philanthropist, is stepping up to fight hunger this summer through Feed Projects, her charity that sells bags, shirts and other accessories.

Co-founded in 2005, Feed Projects will launch a 50-item collection at Target next month, the largest so far for the non-profit.

As part of the partnership, 10 percent of the purchase price of the items (ranging from $3 to $400) will go to hunger-relief charity Feeding America.

Style is also a priority for Lauren this year, as the activist said that South American looks would be the must-have trend for the spring. “Obviously, I’m biased, but Ralph Lauren has some really fun, bold Argentinian-inspired items for this season,” said Lauren, who’s married to David Lauren, EVP of marketing and communications at Ralph Lauren. “I’m definitely looking to get a few of those.”

Here, the philanthropist shares where she goes to get away from it all and the best party she’s ever been to.

Most luxurious getaway: “Amalfi coast in Italy.”

Cocktail of choice: Bellini

Best party I’ve been to: “One of the most random parties I’ve been to was a friend’s 18th birthday party in South Africa. It was amazing.”

Comfort meal: “Any type of pasta with truffles.”

Must-have fashion accessory: “My Feed bag, of course.”

Guilty pleasure: Dark chocolate
