From Jean Paul Gaultier’s cheating challenge, to Anna Wintour, Here is our compilation of the Fashion industry’s best ice bucket challenge.

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past month or so, your social media has most likely been inundated with random people throwing icy water over their heads. As fun as it is though, to see the likes of Anna Wintour losing her composure, we have to keep in mind that the underlying cause is to raise awareness and funds for ALS.

For those that do not know what it is, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease. People living with the disease become progressively paralyzed due to degeneration of the upper and lower motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. 80% of people with ALS die within two to five years of diagnosis – unable to breathe or swallow.

ALS has no known cure or effective treatment yet. For every person diagnosed with ALS, a person living with ALS dies. Approximately 2,500 – 3,000 Canadians currently live with this fatal disease and we strongly encourage everyone to donate and share the message.

On a lighter note, here is our top 6 ice bucket challenges:

Gisele Bundchen

Stella McCartney and Chris Martin

Cara Delevingne

Kate Moss

Jean-Paul Gauthier

Anna Wintour
