 British Marie Claire launched its Inspire & Mentor campaign last week and three Caribbean women are among the ranks of the "most influential women in Britain" that the mag has chosen to serve as mentors.


Singer Leona Lewis (Guyanese by way of her father), actress Naomie Harris (Jamaican mother) and double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes (half-Jamaican by way of her estranged father) are among the 17 women that will mentor chosen Marie Claire readers.

They are all featured on a pull-out cover of Marie Claire's upcoming May issue and on the inside as well with profiles highlighting each woman.

  The campaign which is in association with the esteemed Prince's Trust was launched with a big do at London's Ivy club, with speeches by Harris and British PM's wife Sarah Brown and a performance by Dionne Bromfield, the half-Jamaican, half-Jewish god-daughter of Amy Winehouse and general teenage singing phenom.
