Roland Mouret has teamed with Annie Lennox on a T-shirt which will raise money for her equal rights charity.

The Circle NGO was founded by the Eurythmics musician in 2008 and helps to end violence against women across the world as well as provide a fair living wage for female workers in the garment industry, particularly in fast fashion.

“Team Roland Mouret is proud to be supporting @TheCircleNGO – an NGO (Non-Governmental Organisation) that works to bring equality for women and girls in a fairer world – through our #YourLiesAreNotMyDreams T-shirt campaign. In this video series, team Roland stands up to say ‘Your Lies Are Not My Dreams,'” a Mouret representative wrote on Instagram. “The Circle was founded by ‪@OfficialAnnieLennox‬ in 2008, bringing women together across the globe to act on issues, share ideas, generate transformative change and inspire. This network of women takes action and leverages and brokers access to people who can make a difference, with the knowledge that we still do not live in a world where women and girls have equal rights and opportunities.”

The tee, made from 100 per cent organic cotton, features graphics designed by artist Mehrnoosh Khadivi and is priced at $184 (£145).

A whopping 100 per cent of sales will go towards The Circle NGO, and they can be purchased online and in Mouret’s London flagship store.

Lennox’s non-profit organisation works with lawyers in 14 countries – including India, Bangladesh, Turkey, and Mexico – where big fashion retailers rely on garment production.

Since launching, the charity has raised more than $3.1 million (£2.5 million), and helped over 160,000 women and girls in more than 16 countries.

“The most extraordinary gentleman Mr. Roland Mouret – no less!! @roland_mouret is supporting The Circle @thecirclengothrough his ‘Your Lies Are Not My Dreams’ T-shirt campaign! Thank you Roland!” added Lennox on her social media pages.

Lupita Nyong’o channels Emma Thompson when she’s on the red carpet.

English actress Emma famously photobombed the Kenyan-Mexican star at the 2014 SAG Awards, the year Lupita went home with the Best Supporting Actress gong for 12 Years a Slave.

While Lupita posed regally for photographers in a teal Gucci gown, Emma jumped in behind her making funny faces. Talking to PorterEdit about her fellow actress, Lupita admits she now takes a leaf out of Emma’s book when it comes to glitzy events.

“Emma Thompson, she’s the realest woman. Observing her on the red carpet and how free and irreverent she was,” Lupita recalled of their 2014 encounter. “She was like, ‘Don’t sweat it. We get to wear pretty dresses and prance around this red carpet, so enjoy it.’ That made it less pressure. I’m like, ‘Okay, I need to channel my Emma Thompson. This is a big moment in my life, but also it’s just a moment.’”

Lupita also bagged the Best Supporting Actress Oscar and BAFTA that year.

Since then, Lupita has become a red carpet regular thanks to roles in box office smashes like Black Panther, The Jungle Book and the Star Wars franchise.

Working with stylist Micaela Erlanger for her premiere and awards looks, Lupita has become known for her fearless fashion choices, and she’s now also experimenting with bold beauty looks too.

At the premiere of her new film with Jordan Peele, Us, at the South by Southwest Film Festival, she showed off eye make-up inspired by a look seen on Annie Lennox in the ‘80s, and a hairstyle based on one Snoop Dogg wore in the ‘90s.
