The exclusive event, held below the dramatic glass-cubed planetarium sphere in the American Museum of Natural History, brought together NY and Hollywood celebrities, business, fashion and media leaders from around the world and key figures of the international jet-set for a double-pronged charity push: to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, and raise awareness for gender equality and the empowerment of women worldwide.
The 500 guests in attendance, many of whom flew in expressly for the high-profile event, were regaled by a special performance of the New York City Ballet, before dancing the night away to the music of New York's red-hot DJ Evalicious. For each guest, TAG Heuer pledged $100 to New York Cares' Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund, and a further $100 to Cameron Diaz's partner charity, UN Women (The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women).
The event marks the first time that TAG Heuer Ambassadors Cameron Diaz and Leonardo DiCaprio combined forces for a TAG Heuer celebrity event. Welcomed on stage by thunderous applause, Cameron proudly displayed her new Link Lady Trilogy Limited Edition in steel, and was wearing a stunning Lanvin dress. On Leonardo's wrist, he wore the new Link Limited Edition with blue dial. On stage, TAG Heuer President and CEO Jean-Christophe Babin offered to Cameron a yellow gold version of the trilogy, an exclusive set of watch and jewelry.
"TAG Heuer uniquely brings together the elegance of generosity and the essence of luxury," said Cameron Diaz, a TAG Heuer Brand Ambassador since last March and a longtime supporter of UN Women. "I am very proud to be a part of their efforts to make the world a better and more beautiful place."
"Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of Hurricane Sandy," said TAG Heuer President and CEO Jean-Christophe Babin. "Their resiliency in the face of such adversity is a true inspiration, as is the outpouring of support from communities worldwide. We're proud to support New York Cares as it is the largest local volunteer organization dedicated to supporting those impacted by this devastating storm."
During the prestigious "place-to-be" event, TAG Heuer showcased its new collection of limited edition LINK timepieces and jewelry. A benchmark of avant-garde design and ultimate comfort since 1987, the LINK's newest incarnations are: the Ladies' Link Automatic Watch, the first automatic watch for women offered in the LINK Lady line; the LINK LADY TRILOGY, a limited edition watch, ring and bracelet set co-designed by Cameron Diaz; and the "LEONARDO DICAPRIO" LINK CALIBRE 16 CHRONOGRAPH, a limited edition chronograph signed on its smoked sapphire caseback by Leonardo DiCaprio.
Profits from the sale of the stunning Link Lady Trilogy will go to support UN Women, while proceeds from the blue-dial LDC Limited Edition Link's sales will go to Leonardo DiCaprio's environmental charity partners, Green Cross International and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).
