Eva and Ashton Design Uggs for Charity!

IMTA alum's Eva Longoria and Ashton Kutcher are supporting sick children by donating their time and hand painting Ugg Boots that will be sold in an auction benefiting children’s diseases. All of the proceeds from the auction are going to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital which helps children with medical illnesses get the help they cannot afford otherwise. This year's theme for the designs was "hope," and our own Desperate Housewives Eva chose hearts and her own signature for her boots. Ashton demonstrated his unique personality by decorating the Ugg boots with poetic phrases. You can check out the auction and even place a bid here!
Ashton Kutcher competed at IMTA in 1997 where he won the title of "Most Sought After Male Model!" He had the most callbacks of any male model that year. He signed immediately with NEXT MODELS and began appearing in men's fashion week shows within two days of competing at IMTA! He famously said ,"I never even went home!" Some of his many projects include the movies The Butterfly Effect, Dude, Where's My Car?, The Guardian, Guess Who, Open Season, My Boss's Daughter and Bobby and he was just named as the new face for Pepe Jeans.

Eva competed at IMTA in 1998 and has become an A-list celebrity playing Gabby on ABC's award-winning hit television show Desperate Housewives. Eva is involved in charity work and attends benefits, appears in public service announcements for causes such as breast and ovarian cancer. She recently started her own charity called Eva's Heroes
which helps those with developmental disabilities.
