Holding hands is such a simple gesture but it fills us up with warm fuzzies and makes us feel safe. In the spirit of the season of cozy, we checked out the #HoldMyHandForever launch by Forevermark Diamonds earlier this week. Presenting a gallery of handholding imagery, dozens of celebrities and VIPs gathered to celebrate the meaning of togetherness. Our editor Brigitte Segura joined in on the hand-holding fun with Diandra Forrest, Shaun Ross, Coco Rocha and other friendly familiar faces.
The social project, put together by author of Through The Eyes Of A Dancer and former editor-in-chief of Dance Magazine Wendy Perron, illustrated the artistic and meaningful interpretations of dance artist couples holding hands. It brought about feelings of intimacy and happiness. The beautiful mama-to-be Coco Rocha was a proud supporter of the project as she strolled hand in hand with her hubby. She instagrammed a photo of her holding his hand and raised awareness by using the cute hashtag #HOLDMYHANDFOREVER. Rockstar Kevin Jonas and his lovely wife Danielle locked their fingers together as the proud parents gushed over their daughter and shared pics of the baby girl with fashion photographer Nigel Barker and his stunning wife Cristen.
One of the most fun features of the night was the social media gallery. A social media station allowed guests of the night to show off and our editor Brigitte got to snap a couple of amazing pics with models Shaun Ross and Diandra Forrest, as well as artist Russell King.
The night embodied unity and caringness through such a common gesture that we probably never think twice about. It was all about being together and holding hands as personal promise to one another. Be inspired by the beautiful project to take someone you love by the hand and let them know just how you feel. Tis the season, after all! Written by Andrea Porro.
