Last year in October, Jennifer Lopez was tapped by Gucci, to model with her 2 year-old twins: Max and Emme for the fashion powerhouse’s new children’s collection. The Gucci children’s collection is ranged between $80 to $1,600, and will benefit UNICEF’s Schools for Africa.
Gucci has already donated $1 million to the educational programs, and also $50,000 to Jennifer Lopez’s charity: The Maribel Initiative, which is an organization that promotes wider range of access to health care for women and children worldwide.
Although it’s for a good cause, Jennifer Lopez have been criticized for putting her twins in the Gucci ads. She stated:
“Frida Giannini from Gucci said she was going to launch the Gucci’s kids line, and they were going to do it in conjunction with a big donation, and they were going to do it with [the United Nations’ children’s charity] UNICEF, and would we do it?”
Turns out that Marc Anthony was not on board with the idea at the beginning. J. Lo added:
“Marc didn’t really want to put the babies in an ad or anything like that. And I was just like, if they do it, I’d want to do it with my kids because it is for the kids. That’s the connection. That’s what makes it real. We don’t really parade them around like that, so it was for a good cause.”
