  • This movement is powerful. And necessary. It’s overdue. ⠀ ⠀ I am white, I am privileged. I will never experience what black people in America go through every single day, but I am listening and I am learning. I march with you and will fight with you. This is just the beginning, but it’s a small step towards changing the system. ⠀ ⠀ The layers of this fight are endless — but one layer we must talk about is passive racism. NOT saying something makes you part of the problem. Silence is violence. I have been part of the problem. I’m ashamed and embarrassed to admit this but recognizing it is important. And I understand that I need to try my best to rectify that now by moving through the shame and speaking up and out even if it makes people I know feel uncomfortable.⠀ ⠀ I have learned so much in the last few months and last few days about how problematic and dangerous being quiet and non-confrontational is. We have to be better allies. ⠀ ⠀ Now that we’re here, I keep asking myself and asking others: How do we move forward? How do I, as a white person, do better?⠀ ⠀ Educate yourself. Learn the history behind the outrage.⠀ ⠀ Be vocal. This can be on social media, this can be at protests — but that’s not all. The most impactful thing we can do right now is have meaningful conversations with our friends, family who might not understand the nuances of being anti- racist. Stand firm in that you are on the right side of this. ⠀ ⠀ Take action. Donate to causes that are working toward ending violence and working to undo the laws that hold up an very flawed system. Support black businesses. Support black creatives. I will add organizations I’m supporting in my stories if this is helpful as a jumping off point. ⠀ ⠀ We have failed in so many ways throughout the history of this country, and enough is enough. Don’t let your own shame silence you. ⠀ ⠀ With love, I urge you, as young people especially, to actively join in and help create change...

  • This isn’t new. This kind of brutality has been going on in this country and around the world for a long time, and it’s never been okay. We cannot be quiet about it anymore. Text Floyd to 55156, post, make noise, sign the petitions. Choose love, choose equality, choose decency, choose respect. This has to stop. Beautiful text by @chrostin...

  • On the surface, this was a happy, confident girl. On the inside, I was struggling with so much insecurity and doubt within myself. At this age throughout my late teens and into my twenties, it felt really difficult to speak out about my internal struggles — with family, with relationships, eating disorders and overall uncertainty. But these are topics that should never be taboo, and we shouldn’t be afraid to speak to each other about them. We’re here to get each other through these moments not judge one another for having them. So if I could remind that younger me of one thing it would be that I’m never alone. We’re never alone. We need to lean on good friends and family, focus on the positives, and try our hardest not compare ourselves to others. I’m the only person who can be me. I should love myself as I am. Believe me, I know this isn’t easy and right now it may be even harder as we’re forced to face even our darkest shadows. But let’s give ourselves and each other a little boost of encouragement this week and everyday moving forward and try our hardest not to judge one another too harshly. Self care is not selfish. It’s self love. #mentalhealthawarenessweek...

  • So proud of @lianaweston and @tzprojects for putting together an exhibition that we can enjoy safely during this time. 150 incredible artists have joined in to remind us all that art isn’t cancelled. It’s just found a new way to be appreciated. Check it out at 8070 Beverly Blvd through May 20th! All profits from purchases benefit @projectangelfood @theartofelysium for covid relief. Swipe to the end for more info...

  • I know a lot of people are missing their dances this year, but @teenvogue is going to be throwing a virtual prom tomorrow - and I’m so excited to be part of it! Get dressed up, turn on some music, dance your heart out and try to make the most of it wherever you are. #FBF from my school dance in #LoveRosie. Have fun and stay safe!...

We’ve done so many @lancomeofficial shoots together over the years and I’m so excited to reminisce — and also chat about how to make the most of this time while we’re all at home. I know I keep saying it, but we gotta stay positive and keep in touch with one another! Please jump in and join us on Lancome’s Insta at 10am PST, 1pm EST, 7pm Paris...

  • I count myself incredibly lucky to be your daughter @waverlyondoheny. Things may feel very different this year but my love and gratitude for you remains the same. In fact, it grows greater the older I get and the more I experience life. No matter how dark and disconnected this time may feel, you always bring the light and spread good vibes wherever you go. Love you and our social distancing walks SO much. And so does your lil grandson.  Happy Mother’s Day!...

  • Gearing up for Mother’s Day and going through old photos. I pulled this one from the archives - with @waverlyondoheny in Prague for a @Lancomeofficial shoot. I look back so fondly on all our explorations and adventures together over the years. She’s opened my eyes and mind to so many amazing people and places, and I couldn’t be more grateful for everything she’s taught me... about finding joy in the little things, about life and all its unexpected lessons, about love and how people deserve to be treated — and about letting my inner light shine through, even when it’s raining. Always and forever. #LancomeMothersDay...
