Kate Beckinsale didn’t make her impressive flexibility the focal point of her Monday Instagram update – this was all about giving back. The 47-year-old actress updated her account with a charitable edge today as she announced partnering up with luxury designer Zuhair Murad in support of the Beirut Bombing this month.
Kate, whose designer looks have included $890 gold platform Yves Saint Laurent sandals of late, is putting her name to a brand. But she’s doing it for good. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Kate, a known joker on her Instagram and having turned 47 in her “homosexual pandemic bubble,” opted out of jokes with this post. The “Underworld” actress had, however, opted for a position that was grabbing.
The image showed Kate sat on a white bed and with her legs spread towards a near splits position. The British beauty was wearing simple black pants and the white graphic tee bearing the “#RiseFromTheAshes” forming the hashtag supporting the Lebanese city.
Kate then took to her caption, addressing her 4.4 million followers.
“I am joining @zuhairmuradprivate and @zuhairmuradofficial in helping the people of Beirut who have lost so much in this devastating tragedy,” Kate began.
The tee also worn by “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara and “Friends” alum Courteney Cox, then came confirmed as supporting disaster relief from the August 4 bombing causing at least 181 deaths.
“100% of the profits from this limited edition tee support the relief efforts of Offrejoie who are on the ground responding to humanitarian needs.”
Kate’s followers are all for it. The bombing resulting from the stockpiling of ammonium nitrate in a warehouse also left approximately 300,000 people homeless.
“Congratulations on all that you are doing to help. I hope that you sell a million of them!” one fan wrote.
A reply also came in from Zuhair Murad Private’s Instagram – “Thank you so much dear for the support ?,” the note read.
The tee retails for $25.99 and, alongside Cox and Vergara, has also been promoted by model Devon Windsor and Gigi Hadid’s real estate developer father Mohamed Hadid. Scroll for Kate’s 23-year-old boyfriend.
Kate, meanwhile continues to make headlines for dating 23-year-old musician Goody Grace. The Canadian is a touch older than Kate’s 21-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen. The April-commenced couple have said “I love you” to each on Instagram, also proving regulars with L.A.’s paparazzi as they hit up grocery stores.
Kate has endured trolling over the large age gap. She’s also one to clap back. Prior to dating Goody Grace, Kate was in a relationship with 26-year-old SNL comedian and ex to Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson.
