Jennifer Aniston, Lena Dunham, and Naomi Watts Want to Bring Art Classes to More Schools

Lena Dunham, Jennifer Aniston, and Naomi Watts want you to color outside the lines. They, along with other actors, musicians, and artists, have created drawings for LilySarahGrace, an organization that provides supplies to teachers in underfunded schools to help them to teach their curriculum through art.

The fund was founded by Matthew Badger and his partner Abby Ballin after Badger’s three daughters, Lily, Sarah, and Grace, were tragically killed in a fire on Christmas 2011. All three of his daughters had dyslexia, and Badger saw first hand how art classes helped his daughters learn. He has since allocated millions of dollars in supplies to teachers around the country so that they can help their students learn outside of the lines through art.

Starting today, you can donate to Badger’s new Kickstarter campaign, which will raise money to publish a book featuring the drawings of Aniston, Dunham, Watts, as well as Jessica Biel, Diane von Furstenberg, Elle Fanning, and many other celebs (Dunham’s and Watts’ are pictured above). The book, which will be titled You Can’t Memorize This, aims to show that all creative types think outside the box. All proceeds from the book will go to funding these art-driven curriculums in schools.

Head over to LilySarahGrace’s Kickstarter campaign to donate and visit lilysarahgrace.org to learn more about the organization.

Naomi Watts Nails Weekend Style in a Denim Shirtdress

Every Monday, like clockwork, we usher in the work week with a slew of updates detailing what our favorite celebs did over the weekend. And, especially in the summertime, few are more exciting to read than those concerning Naomi Watts. When she’s not busy filming, the Australian actress spends nearly every weekend gallivanting around the great outdoors—biking, scootering and generally living life with a capital L—with her husband Liev Schreiber and their two sons, Sasha and Samuel, in tow.

On a recent warm weather jaunt to the Brentwood Farmers’ Market, Watts was spotted rocking the perfect off-duty ensemble: a straw fedora, floral Birkenstocks and a denim shirtdress by Michael Stars. Made of a soft Tencel material that’s washed down and bleached through, the playful frock features reversed fabric on the front pockets, a drawstring to cinch the waist and button-down front. “We wanted to take that perfect, easy denim dress and give it an elevated and modern edge,” Michael Stars co-founder Suzanne Lerner told InStyle.

We can’t help but love the laid-back vibe of Watts’ look. After all, we demonstrated its wearability ourselves just a couple of months ago. If you want to nab the look, you’d better act fast: the Michael Stars Denim Tencel Shirt Dress is currently on sale (score!) for $ 89 at michaelstars.com.
