    Happy Birthday to my actual sister who is also a Capricorn. I have looked up to you since as long as I can remember. You were a fierce big sister with big shoes to fill. As a girl you had confidence and spunk, as a mother you demonstrate endless affection and compassion for your children, as a wife and partner you continue to be the supportive and ever thoughtful CEO of your family and as a grown woman you prove daily that age is merely a number and that life is too precious to waste a moment when there is so much to experience still and fun to be had along the way. Thank you for ensuring that my birthday is special every year. I hope that you are having the best birthday yet and look forward to continuing the celebration of your every year to date and ahead of you! I love you @kellytburns #thisis50 #felizcumpleanos

    Been thinking about this special soul all day on his birthday. After dreaming about him and staring at him on the posters of my teenage walls for many years I was lucky enough to manifest them and meet David at least a dozen times between 1984, when I moved to NYC from the bay area and 2016 when he died in NYC. All those times we met, I was always that teenager and in awe of his talent and superiority as a creative human on this planet. I was always a bit-tongue tied in his presence. I mustered the courage to ask a favor of him for my charity @everymomcounts a few years ago when we had an opportunity to compile a CD project to benefit maternal health. I reached out to Iman first, who is a dear friend, and she agreed to pass along the request. To my surprize and honor, he graciously said yes and even went so far to suggest a song given the theme and issue. That song was, "Everyone says "Hi." The lyrics below seemed to be written to help bring peace to those feeling sad and left behind. When we lose the friendship and soul of another we look for any sign of them in our waking hours. The last time I saw David was in front of the school our children attended, mine are still there. He had arrived in front of school to join Iman for a parent teacher conference with their beautiful and talented daughter Lexi who was still in middle school at the time. Still, I was tongue-tied and didn't find the words to convey my gratitude in that moment. I never had the opportunity to see or thank him in person again. Lesson being, when there is gratitude, you must take any and every opportunity to offer it and give it voice when you can. But it is bever too late because I believe those who have left us are still very connected to us. Thank you, David Jones, for every inspiration throughout my life and for the lessons in generosity and kindness, always, and for the continuing energy and spirit that you leave behind. You are deeply missed, but never forgotten. "Don't stay in a sad place Where they don't care how you are Everyone says hi" https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=um05lJzXD0w&sns=em

    I have too many memories to mention here right now about Franca but this is one of my favorite covers of my career (minus the cigarette) shot by Steven Meisel for Italian Vogue. I was a free agent again after my first contract with Calvin Klein and Franca welcomed me back with open arms and my career as a model was reborn. I was in Rome a few weeks ago and stopped by to visit Pierpaolo Piccioli at Valentino and he passed the phone to me to say hello to an old friend. It was Franca Sozzani. Her voice was as legendary as her eyes, face and character. We said we'd see eachother in NYC soon. It had been too long...Grazie Franca for many, many years of a long distance friendship. What true grace and beauty you personified. πŸ’™

    No! As a Mother who is also a Human, I cannot look away any longer. Please join me in support of these families. @everymomcounts invested in the training of Syrian midwives in Turkey earlier this year through our emergency fund grantee partners @circleofhealth that women would continue to have access to skilled care but who knows how those midwives are doing or if they are still alive even. It was only a drop in the bucket of need there now. #Aleppo
