Style Network Beefs Up Campaign for Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Victoria’s Secret Model Wears Even Less for Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign

Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller has partnered with fashion designer Marc Jacobs for this year’s ‘Protect the Skin Your In” campaign t-shirt.

Jacobs launched the initiative in 2006 to raise awareness about skin cancer. The t-shirts are sold at Marc Jacobs’ boutiques with proceeds benefiting the NYU Cancer Institute and its melanoma research. Past t-shirts have featured Heidi Klum and Victoria Beckham, among others, the New York Post says. You can also find the campaign on Facebook.
