Known for her hit role on Twilight as the cool beautiful bombshell blonde vampire Rosalie Hale/Cullen, actress Nikki Reed/Somerhalder has just launched her new fashion line BaYou With Love. Unlike the cold-hearted character she played on the silver screen, (sadly what she is most recognized in) the actress/producer has shown us time and time again how big her heart really is. Via her constant support and close involvement with charities that are against and promote awareness of bullying, AIDS, Cancer, Lupus, Autism, and many other physical and mental health challenges. She is also a well know advocate for animal rights and well being charities such as ASPCA, Animals Asia, and her celebrity hubby Ian Somerhalder’s IS Foundation.
The launch of BaYou With Love, along with friend and partner Morgan Bogle, is just another indication of her love of both Mother Nature and her inhabitants. As the fashion line is fully sustainable, created with recycled plastics and the like. It is also fully manufactured in the US, helping to promote “local craftsmen, artisans, and ethical factories…” The site went live May 6 making products available for preorder, and can be viewed at bayouwithlove.com . The line includes standard apparel, lounge wear, a few beauty products, and a maternity line, (perfect timing for the radiant mother to be as Nikki an Ian are expecting! )
Below is the company’s Mission Statement:
was founded in an effort to achieve the very balance we find in nature, in the fashion world. Galvanized by the desire to create harmonious moments between how we feel, and what we wear. Inspired by the beauty that surrounds us and motivated by the lack of sustainable and natural options, BaYou With Love was born. It’s the way it makes you feel to merge thoughtful consumerism with effortlessly chic style. Sustainable fashion isn’t the future, it’s the present. Wearing BaYou is wearing love.
