Kiehl's Celebrity-Designed Mr. Bones Skeletons

Celebrities Go Bare-Bones For Kiehl's (And a Good Cause)

Celebrities Go Bare-Bones For Kiehl's (And a Good Cause)

Ever wonder why Kiehl's stores have a skeleton on display? Originally, "Mr. Bones" was used to educate people about their ailments (and, of course, on how the onetime pharmacy's offerings could help them). Now, Mr. Bones is getting a makeover — 13 of them, to be exact — as photographers, designers, singers, and other artistic types lend their talents for a good cause. Alicia Keys, Zach Galifianakis, Terry Richardson, Padma Lakshmi, and other creatives have designed their own skeletons for the project; in return, Kiehl's is donating $200,000 to organizations supporting children, the environment, and HIV/AIDS causes of their choosing. The skeletons will be on display in New York-area Kiehl's boutiques, but if you can't see them in person, hop online for photos and videos — along with the chance to design your own virtual Mr. Bones for a chance to win prizes. Read on to see all of the skeletal artworks, plus information on the charities and organizations that are benefiting from Mr. Bones.
