Rihanna is the latest star to partner with MAC Cosmetics for its Viva Glam line. Every cent of every purchase from the line goes towards helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. We love the bold red shade of RiRi's version, pictured here (above left; $16, maccosmetics.com). Past Viva Glam collaborators have included Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, and the original MAC girl: RuPaul.
Pop into a Marc Jacobs boutique and pick up a t-shirt benefiting Aid for AIDS International (above right; $35, marcjacobs.com). The line of cotton tees features colorful, hand-made designs created by children living with the disease from AFAI's children's programs in Latin America and the Caribbean.
