“A WORLD OF PINK” GALA & FASHION SHOW

Hosted by  Victoria's Secret Angel LINDSAY ELLINGSON Co-Founder of Wander Beauty to Crown Breast Cancer Survivors.

New York Jets Wide Receiver Quincy Enunwa hosted the Second Annual “A World of Pink” Gala & Fashion Show on Monday, October 29th at Watermill Caterers, 711 Smithtown Bypass, Smithtown, NY. Lindsay Ellingson, Victoria’s Secret Angel & Founder of Wander Beauty did crown AWOP Breast Cancer Survivors. Famous Pop Artist Charles Bruce Beck Emceed.

The Gala included cocktail reception, open bar, banquet dinner, DJ, live entertainment, raffles, parade of survivors and their surgeons, and an exclusive Fashion Show featuring breast cancer survivors.

A World of Pink is a health facility founded and dedicated to meeting the needs of all women in all phases of breast aftercare.

Through the use of proper bra fittings and breast prostheses, Christine and her team of certified fitters provide women who are facing breast reconstruction or removal due to breast cancer with profound and deserved confidence.

Inspired by friends, family, and a desire to help all women, we are proud to offer A World of Pink in search of a world of beauty, balance, and healing hearts.

Christine A. Guarino, RDH, CMF, CFm, founded A World of Pink in 2015 with a mission to restore confidence for women following breast surgery. A World of Pink provides beautiful, comfortable pocketed bras that are supportive and help in healing, as well as top-quality breast prostheses that match a patient's skin tone and lifestyle. Best of all, A World of Pink works with most insurance companies (including Medicare) to help minimize, if not eliminate, any out-of-pocket costs for their patients.

Christine is certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthics (A.B.C.) and the Board for Certification/ Accreditation (B.O.C.). She is also a Cerified Lymphedema Fitter as well as the lead mastectomy fitter at A World of Pink.

Christine works diligently to ensure a comfortable and friendly environment for all her patients. Each patient is measured and fit with the proper supportive bra and prostheses that help to restore a sense of self-pride, confidence, and balance.

I also had chance to speak to Super Model Lindsay Ellingson.

Lindsay is a world-renowned Supermodel and Victoria's Secret Angel. Although she is not a survivor, Lindsay, much like A World of Pink, feels strongly about improving the lives of those affected by breast cancer. Lindsay has modeled for Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Proenza Schoulder, Valentino, Christian Dior, and of course, is an Angel for Victoria's Secret, amongst others. Lindsay is also the co-founder of Wander Beauty, the first travel-inspired, luxury color cosmetics products of high performance and cruelty free formulas that keep you looking gorgeous on the go! Wander Beauty was the recipient of the 2017 Oprah Magazine Fall Beauty Award.

A World of Pink has made it their mission to provide women with the opportunity to regain their confidence, breast symmetry, and positive body image. Through the use of breast prostheses and beautiful supportive bras, we are helping women one fitting at at time.

It is common for some women to lose confidence following lumpectomy, mastectomy, or other breast procedures. For many, breast reconstruction may be out of reach or undesired, but that doesn't mean that asymmetrical breasts are a permanent tribulation. Prostheses can act like a bridge for more permanent solutions during any reconstructive process. We proudly offer prostheses in a spectrum of shades to match your skin tone.

Breast Cancer Survivors and Supporters mingled together at The Reconstructed Bra Fashion Show & Auction on Thursday, May 17th at the Southampton Social Club.

The event featured 20 reconstructed bras worn by local models and were auctioned off live. Guests enjoyed a full open bar and high-end appetizers while viewing the fashion show and auction. The Bra Auction is a benefit for the local breast cancer organizations: Lucia’s Angels and the Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

Lucia's Angels is a foundation committed to helping women and families on Eastern Long Island with late-stage women’s cancers including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and uterine cancer.

The foundation was created in loving memory of Lucia Terzi Bagan. Lucia was a very giving person- not only of the material sense but also of herself and her heart. It's no wonder she had so many friends and family surrounding her in her final days. It was Lucia's wish that other women and their families could have that same kind of love and support through their toughest times.

Lucia’s Angels has provided help and funding for: gasoline gift cards, grocery gift cards, heating bills, dental work, housecleaning, rent, eyeglasses, food trains, babysitting, heating bills, health insurance premiums, automobile repair, ambulatory trips, therapeutic massage, transportation, salon services and wigs. From special wishes like one more trip to the beach, to providing extra child-care, to the holding of a hand, Lucia's spirit and Angels will be there.

TV Host Cognac Wellerlane interviews Fashion Designer and Editor of PopImpressKA Journal The Baroness Olga Papkovitch

Members of the press, fashionistas, royalty and New York City Society gathered together on Thursday January 25th for PopImpressKA Art Couture by Baroness Olga Papkovitch to present a benefit to help the relief efforts for Puerto Rico. The event took place from 6:00pm-10:00pm at the Manhattan Art and Antiques Center, 1050 2nd Ave (between 55th and 56th streets), two floors surrounded by priceless museum antiques and art objects.


The event featured a full fledge fashion show. Performance by musical artist Roberto Vazquez managed by Fernando Bernierd. Celebrities walking the runway include: Dominican music personality Ralph Joseph, BMI Recording Artist/Singer/Songwriter Dazz Letellier, Midori Amae, DCW50’s America’s Next Top Model Fan Favorite and Miss Black Virginia USA, Internet Personality and Model Elida Loci, Russian Supermodel and TV personality Irina Dmitrakova and Alexandra Lee, PopImpressKA Journal & Art Couture Spokesmodel Popimpresska.


Fashion Celebrity Designers Michel Altieri and Genevieve Laurent of “Laurent & Altieri” made cameo appearances in the show.  Stage Actress Cindy Marinangel completely embodied the spirit of Marlene Dietrich, the brave German actress who was known both for her sultry femme fatal and her outspoken political views attended the event.


Before the fashion show I was introduced by Actor Errol Rappaport to Cindy Marinangel.  Ms. Marinangel was happy to sit down with me and talk about her one woman Show "Marlene" which tells the true story of German and Hollywood Movie Star Marlene Dietrich.   In May, 1960, Dietrich returned to Germany to perform on stage for the first time since fleeing the Hitler regime in 1939.  Set in Dietrich's dressing room at Berlin's Tatiana Palast Theatre, she tries to decide whether she should go through with the recital as threats have been made on her life by Nazi sympathizers.


Cindy was born to perform and did everything from stage plays, musicals and dance shows to cheerleading and poms in her native Chicagoland area.  She has been playing leading roles since Kindergarten, (where she first exhibited her outstanding memory by literally mouthing all of her fellow actor's lines.)


Fast forward to Chicago's Piper Alley where she landed her first Chicago audition for the long-running show "Tony & Tina's Wedding".  Initially cast in the most basic of roles, her caustic wit and Second City training caught the attention of producers and led to her playing Tina.  She later reprised her roles both in Las Vegas and in the Tony & Tina's Off-Broadway tour.  Several other shows followed garnishing excellent reviews.


Hollywood soon beckoned and it wasn't long before she began landing film roles. Cindy has starred opposite Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst and Tim Bagley.  She has had leading roles in both short and full-length features that have run the festival circuits.


Cindy has also been breaking into television both in the acting and hosting arenas. She was honored to portray Princess Di in Lee Major's "Forbidden Secrets", and has landed leading roles in several pilots. A natural dancer and choreographer, she has utilized her talents in several music videos as well.


As a great lover of action, Cindy is an accomplished snow and water skier.  She is a hard-hitting, left-handed first basewoman for her softball team and does everything from salsa and tango to belly dancing for fun.


Cindy's husky voice has been utilized for numerous voice-over spots.  Her adeptness for both comedy and drama has ensured her casting versatility, and her enthusiasm for "The Biz" is contagious. Cindy intends to be acting when she's eighty!

Radio and TV Personality Jose Rivera and TV Personality His Highness Dr. Prince Mario-Max Schaumburg-Lippe hosted the event.


After the show I was happy to sit down with the Prince and chat about how he was introduced to The Baroness Olga Papovitch.

He started his media career as a student writing celebrity reports for Bertelsmann Magazines. After moving to Germany he landed work with the biggest TV Networks RTL and Sat1 Pro7 Media.

The Prince also achieved his early dreams of becoming a club owner by promoting his families "Buddha Party- and Shisha Lounge" in Salzburg, as a Spokesmodel for the company.

His own family history is a royal dream come true. When his mother Princess Antonia brought up Mario-Max as a single mom after her divorce from a doctor, she married the Royal Prince Waldemar zu Schaumburg-Lippe with his one thousand years ancestry of kings and queens. Becoming a Princess herself also her son Prince Mario-Max received the title "Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe" and became the only son of His Highness Prince Waldemar. His father is the direct cousin of Danish Queen Margrethe and he is even in succession to the British Royal Throne due to his royal ancestry.
