To celebrate the launch of StellaMcCartneyCares.org , I feature in support of the new Breast Cancer Awareness campaign film “All is Love”. A cast of women reveal their mastectomy scars in beautiful, natural scenes, lensed by @ana_sting and directed by @molliemills . The “Louise Listening” double mastectomy bra is available free of charge for those in need. #StellaMcCartney
