How is Lord & Taylor paying homage to Mother’s Day? By highlighting an extraordinary group of celebrity moms who each offer their own distinctive style.
The stylish group of mommas that Lord & Taylor selected for its Celebrate Every Mom campaign include Christie Brinkley as The Beach Mom, Gina Rodriguez as The Philanthropist alongside her mother Magali, Angela Lindvall as The Nature Mom, Patricia Moreno as The Fitness Mom, Libby Edelman as The Free-Spirited Mom, and Isabeli Fontana as The Cool Mom.
Supermodel, environmentalist, and animal rights activist Christie Brinkley’s photo shoot took place at her Hamptons home. She was joined by her beautiful daughter Sailor Brinkley Cook, who bears a striking resemblance to her stunning mom, for the campaign. Christie noted that her definition of “true beauty” is someone who has compassion, empathy, a good sense of humor and desire to do the right thing.
“Find something to be grateful for,” Christie says is incredible important. For Brinkley, her children, Alexa Ray Joel, Sailor Brinkley Cook, and Jack Brinkley Cook, provide endless joy. “My list always starts the same way – with my kids,” Christie noted. “That’s my gratitude list.”
Luckily for the supermodel, she has had quite a few opportunities recently to share the spotlight with her gorgeous children. In addition to the Lord & Taylor campaign, Brinkley graced the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue alongside both of her daughters, and was also featured in People‘s 2017 World’s Most Beautiful issue with all three of her children.
“My mom has always had this very personal style that has transcended through the years,” Sailor noted in the Celebrate Every Mom video. She describes her mom’s unique style as “eclectic, but chic.”
While shooting the campaign, Jane the Virgin star and philanthropist Gina Rodriguez spoke about the deep love she has for her mother, who helped Gina develop her confidence and deep sense of self. “The consistent memory I have of my mother is always supporting me, always being there for me, and always telling me that I was capable of anything and everything,” Gina shared. “She always taught us to feel confident first before anything else. We make the clothes, the clothes didn’t make us. Confidence is the best dress on a woman.”
While growing up, most girls raid their mom’s closet to borrow clothes, but for Gina and Magali, it’s the opposite. “I never really stole my mom’s shoes,” Gina noted. “Moreover I stole hers,” Magali added, as they both cracked up.
