Posted: June 14, 2012

Best-selling novelist, lawyer and philanthropist Linda Fairstein will receive the 4th Annual HBA Positively Beautiful Award from the HBA Global Expo for her support of philanthropic organization Safe Horizon and its mission of providing support, preventing violence and promoting justice for victims of crime and abuse, their families and communities.

The Positively Beautiful Award was established by HBA Global to annually recognize a celebrity who uses their name and talents to further a cause that champions inner beauty and self-esteem building. The award presentation will be part of the event's keynote panel that kicks off the HBA Global Expo on Tuesday, June 19.

"Throughout her career, Fairstein has been a champion for women and children who have been victims of violent crimes and abuse. Her leadership and actions have helped so many to find their 'inner beauty' as they also find hope and healing," said Ariel Zwang, CEO of Safe Horizon.; "I am truly delighted that Linda's work and her dedication to Safe Horizon will be recognized with HBA's Positively Beautiful Award."

Prior to the Positively Beautiful Award presentation, a keynote panel entitled “The Future of Beauty" will take place. Moderated by Jane Larkworthy, beauty director of W magazine, Deanna Kangas, CEO of Stila Cosmetics; Sonia Kashuk, makeup artist and entrepreneur; Jim Markham, founder and CEO of ColorProof Evolved Color Care; and Catherine Walsh, senior vice president of Coty Prestige will share their unique perspectives on brand building and look ahead to what's next in beauty advancements and innovations.
