Join celebrities in the quest for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer awareness. Upload a selfie today with the hashtag #brightpinklipstickday
Bright Pink Lipstick Day – The Facts:
In Australia, it’s believed that nearly a quarter of a million men and women carry a hereditary gene that put them at increased risk of breast, ovarian, prostate and other cancers. In 2007, Access Economics data revealed that one young high risk woman (under 65, if diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancer) can cost the affected individual, their family and the healthcare system up to $1.75 million in their life-time. If you look at the estimated figures of 1000 young women at risk, the estimated cost of treating them in their lifetime would be over $1.5 billion! And that is only the physical cost; the emotional cost to these families who are affected year after year and generation after generation is enormous.
The government spends billions on cancer patients once they are diagnosed; all we want is an investment into prevention and education. We need to make it easier on families taking preventative action through genetic testing and surgery. There should be no out of pocket costs if we are saving money in the long term.”
Since Hollywood star Angelina Jolie’s decision to have a preventative double mastectomy, her voice and profile has brought much needed attention to the harsh reality of hereditary cancer – and her action to go public has meant that Pink Hope has experienced over a 700 per cent increase in families reaching out, and as a result is in desperate need of additional funding.
Pink Hope’s founder, Krystal Barter, was only 22 years old when she discovered she had the BRCA1 gene fault that gave her an 85 per cent chance of developing breast cancer and up to 65 per cent of ovarian cancer. Krystal says, “Whilst in hospital recovering, I found there really wasn’t anywhere for me to go for support or information, so I formed Pink Hope to help other families in a similar situation to my own.”

The inaugural Bali Fashion Festival presented by The Stones Hotel Legian closed the festivities over the weekend with a party hosted by TATLER Indonesia magazine. The week-long event played host to a long list of Asian Pacific celebrities, socialites and talent from Australia including Michael and Lindy Klim and Casey Burgess.
Locals of the island and tourists from around the world indulged in a fashionable week of workshops, pop-up boutiques and world-class runway shows that featured some of the regions most established and emerging designers.
Leah De Gloria from Project Runway Australia opened The Fashion Festival with her beautiful couture collection, followed by Singaporean label, Gnossem. Balinese labels Uluwatu Lace, Arturro and Mr & Mrs Wardrobe lead the fashion pack and got the bloggers excited with their traditional prints and flowing ensembles, whilst Jakarta based label, FOXXY, sparkled with a touch of quirk.
Australia has been well represented with Shakuhachi, Story by Tang, BARE, State of Georgia and Pared eyewear showcasing their eclectic chic style. Shakuhachi introduced its Cyber-Barbarella range of Space-age grunge and floaty, feminine florals to an adoring crowd of hipsters and fashionistas. Models walked out in wistful prints and girlish silhouettes. Bomber jackets coated in a metallic sheen were paired with playful floral camisoles, figure-hugging patent bustiers mimicked the construction of cosmic-armour – offset by floral kimonos, crisp white blazers and delicate printed organza.
Nicholas Meimaris, MD & Creative Director for MGroup who produced The Fashion Festival, was thrilled with the activity, “From the original concept of creating an integrated fashion event that would
showcase the Pan Pacific region’s emerging and established designers to Bali’s industry and travel audience – it’s exciting to see the Festival come together. The island has become a melting pot of designers, celebrities and artists that have been able to engage and enjoy each other’s creativity.”
The Fashion Festival has been a stunning showcase of fashion, beauty, style and culture with stunning Indonesian models hair styled by internationally renowned stylist Rob Peetoom.
Meimaris concluded, “We plan to make the event the hero fashion festival for the region and continue to offer our audience and guests an exciting opportunity to experience an international runway production!”
