"The Lipstick Portraits is a series of photographs by Michael Angelo of strong, independent personalities from various walks of life—including Susan Sarandon, Dita Von Teese, Daryl Hannah, Selita Ebanks and Alan Cumming who have marked themselves with red lipstick in freedom, standing in solidarity with girls and women who are forced to wear red lipstick while being sold as slaves in brothels. "

"100% of the proceeds from the sale of limited edition exhibition prints, catalogues and tee shirts will benefit the Somaly Mam Foundation, a non-profit organization driven by Somaly Mam, a trafficking survivor, and one of the most prolific activists fighting sexual slavery today."
