This February will see a publishing first — over 30 covers of the February issues of Elle Magazine internationally will feature Gisele on the cover as she teams up with Scarlett and BONO to help fight AIDS in Africa for (RED).

Inside, Scarlett Johansson shares private details and photos of her travels to Rwanda and (RED) Founder and U2 Front man, Bono publishes a very personal letter.

Scarlett on AIDS tests:

“When I admitted that I’d taken two HIV tests, everyone was completely horrified, the implication being that I was leading this wild lifestyle,” says Scarlett Johansson, whose decision to join Bono in the (RED) initiative was a “no brainer.” “I was only being responsible.”

Scarlett On (RED):

“When you purchase (PRODUCT) RED items – from partners including Apple, Armani, Converse and the Gap – up to 50 percent of profits go directly to fighting HIV/AIDS in Africa. Forty cents a day translates to the two antiretroviral pills needed to survive.”

“If that can be achieved by buying a couple of pairs of Converse, it’s worth a shot.”
