As of July 7, the global COVID-19  pandemic has killed over 120,000 people in the United States and over 530,o00 worldwide. While there probably won't be a vaccine to stop this deadly virus from continuing to wreak havoc until at least 2021, there is one surefire way to slow the spread. Yes, that's right, I'm talking about wearing your damn mask.

Masks not only protect you from catching it, but they also prevent you from spreading it.  They are not a political statement, they are a safety precaution. Masks are not stepping on your freedom, they are giving you the freedom to protect yourself. And at this point, hundreds of fashion brands have started making them, so if you don't want to wear a medical one, you have good options. 

Take celebrities for example. Many of them are leaning all the way into mask-wearing and making them a part of their look. Lizzo matched her swimsuit to her mask, Emily Ratajkowski has used them as a way to show off her pattern mixing skills, and Kerry Washington wore hers to prove that leopard print is a neutral. If you need a little inspiration for mask-wearing and you happen to enjoy a celebrity photo or two (I know you do), below you'll find 13 simple photos of famous people looking great and following CDC guidelines to protect others.
