Victoria Secret model Karlie Kloss and fashion designer Jason Wu will participate in this year’s AIDS Walk New York as co-captains of the team STEP FORWARD. The pair will raise money for the 2012 AIDS Walk in New York this Sunday. The long time close friends, will complete the 6.2-mile route with the aim of making $50,000 for AIDS organizations, through their donation site.
More than 45,000 participants are expected to attend. The landmark event benefits GMHC and 41 other local AIDS service organizations who provide food, housing, medical care, and much more to people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as vital prevention work that reaches hundreds of thousands throughout the tri-state area.
“The idea came about at the Met Ball with a mutual friend of ours,” Kloss told Vogue UK. “We were in a sea of glamour and we looked at each other and said, ‘what do we do next?’ The AIDS Walk became a perfect opportunity to change our ball gown and black tie for sneakers and work-out clothes. Juicy Couture is even donating a bucket of money for me to wear their clothes for the event which is amazing – it’s fantastic to see my friends in the fashion community getting behind us, come on guys!”
Other notable celebrities that will be participating are; Wendy Williams (“The Wendy Williams Show“), Nick Jonas (“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying“), Keri Hilson (Grammy Award Winner), Barrett Foa (“NCIS: Los Angeles“), Dot-Marie Jones (“Glee“), David Hyde Pierce (Emmy Award Winner), Audra McDonald (Tony Award Winner) and Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty“)

Although they originally married on October 23, 2011, Vicki will be able to catch all the action second time round. The couple are planning to exchange vows in a formal ceremony again later this month, which will be seen on their Bravo show.
The nuptials will take place in Santa Barbara [on] a cliff overlooking the ocean, at sunset. Briana found her dream wedding gown at Erin Cole bridal boutique in Costa Mesa, Calif.
