In early December, Warby Parker celebrated its new collaboration with stylist Leith Clark—a collection of retro-inspired, whimsical frames of which a percentage of sales will benefit the United Nations Foundation Girl Up, which works to empower adolescent American girls to become advocates for health care and education issues worldwide. Actress Zoe Kazan cohosted the dinner with Clark and also appeared in a short film, shot by photographer Pamela Hanson, in which she asked a group of girls from ages three to thirteen what they’d like to be when they grow up. Among answers that included “marine biologist” and “scientist,” one particularly young charge said she’d like to be a peacock.
