Lauren Bush is beautiful, well-connected (her fiance is David Lauren, Ralph’s son) and one of New York’s most philanthropic socials on the scene. Her charity, FEED Projects (which she co-founded with Ellen Gustafon) creates good, healthy products that – you guessed it – help feed the needy children of the world.

Most of FEED Projects money is raised through the sale of FEED bags and Bush is never without a FEED bag from a red carpet FEED clutch to a FEED tote to a FEED knapsack – she is the ultimate model to make you buy that bag. Bravo to Bush, who could buy a billion Birkins, but instead is tirelessly committed to feeding the people of the world. A look back at Lauren Bush and her ever-present FEED bag.
