Petra Nemcova’s Heart-Filled Holiday


Petra Nemcova is all about giving this time of the year, thanks to her Happy Hearts Fund. Once again partnering with Clinique, the beauty brand has committed itself to helping build the non-profit’s 100th school by the end of 2014 to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, which changed the Czech model’s life. Though the Happy Hearts perfume package has been re-designed, $10 from the sale of each bottle benefits the organization’s efforts to rebuild the schools that were impacted by natural disasters. Plus, they’ve even added Chubby Moisturizing Lip Balm that will contribute $3 with each sale. Glam caught up with the haute humanitarian to find out what lights up her holiday and what she has in store for 2015.

We've seen how everyone's joined in on the #HappyHeartsChallenge. Do you have any favorite snaps?

There are so many gorgeous ones that I love! One of my favorites was done by Todd and Megan Diciurcio (@odddc) because it was very cool and artistic. I love @SybilSteele’s girls because they are adorable. @Alexitavel took the challenge with her dog. [I also love] the “sibling share” by Lily Aldridge and her sister Saffron. And of course, the amazingly hot couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend.

With the holidays around the corner, what's at the top of your shopping list this year?

For stocking stuffers, Clinique Happy Heart Fund fragrance and the Clinique Happy Hearts Chubby Stick in Plumped Up Pink because they are beautiful and practical gifts that give back. For underneath the tree, many people on my list are getting electronics or a Be the Light baby alpaca travel blanket.

What the ultimate ingredient for a haute holiday party?

Family and friends.

What do you think is the hottest holiday beauty look to try? Do you have any tips on how to achieve it?

Red lips are always great for a festive look. For a bright red lip that lasts, I use MAC Matte Lipstick. It doesn’t move. You don’t need anything else. I always get so many compliments when I wear it.

Have you thought about a New Year's Resolutions yet? If you do keep them, what's on your list for an amazing 2015?

Staying true to myself because life can pull you in so many different directions.
