Kristin has urged her fans to shun ivory; insisting ruthless dealers are exploiting a loophole in the law to sell the banned substance as antiques. The Sex and the City star adopted an abandoned baby elephant during a visit to Africa in 2009 and launched a crusade to save the endangered species, for which she was handed the Humane Society’s 2010 Wyler Award.
Now, Davis is stepping up her campaign by highlighting the illegal trade in ivory and calling on the public to beware of tricks used by black market salesmen.
She tells U.K. TV show This Morning, “Number one: Never, ever, ever buy ivory. Because what they are doing is they are saying that it’s antique. They are claiming that it’s antique so you will go to some beautiful shop and they will say, ‘Here’s an antique ivory chest from 1912′, and you think, ‘Ok, how beautiful, I can buy that’. No, no, no – they are faking it.”
“They have taken it and rubbed it to make it look like it’s old. So people are unwillingly supporting this illegal black market sale of illegal ivory. Never buy ivory.”
Hollywood stars Colin Firth, Kristin Davis, and Bonnie Wright are to take part in a special event to mark the 70th anniversary of Oxfam.
Sex and the City star Davis, who is also a Global Ambassador for the charity, and Harry Potter actress Wright will take to the stage at the Oxford Playhouse in Oxford, England for Eight Stories High next month (Oct12). They will regale the audience with tales from the world of showbiz, and a pre-recorded video message from The King’s Speech star Firth will also be broadcast.
Davis says, “I am deeply proud to be involved in Eight Stories High – there are so many untold and fantastic stories that touch Oxfam’s world, which should be shared. This event is a very special 70th anniversary celebration and I am honoured to be involved as a Global Ambassador for Oxfam.”

My daughter isn’t old enough for screen time and I haven’t started letting her play with my iPhone too much. But there’s one exception: when we’re flying. I think that constitutes an emergency, right? She is just captivated by all the other baby’s faces and their expressions in the Baby Play Face App, and it definitely keeps her focused on takeoff. Which is really important, because Gemma is the kind of kid who just wants to wave to every single person on the plane!

Former Sex and the City actress, Kristin Davis is currently starring in Broadway’s The Best Man, while taking care of adopted daughter Gemma Rose who she became a mother to last summer. She told People magazine:
“The show is at night most of the days, so I spend all morning and all day with her then I go do the show at night. It’s actually [a] really great schedule for a mum. I’m able to be with her and have a job, which is rare and wonderful.”
The 47-year-old actress continued: “She’s trying to walk – she hasn’t walked totally alone, but she walks with furniture. She’s doing great. I’m not trying to push her. Especially as a single mum, you have to be really on your toes. Once they start moving around as well, you can’t be foggy.”
Kristin added: There are so many things that can happen, so it gives me such peace of mind to know that there’s something I can take that’s healthy. Zarbee’s coats my throat gently, doesn’t affect my performance and doesn’t affect me getting up at 6 a.m. with my baby.”
“In L.A. we have a big bin of books and a big bin of toys and in the morning, when we go to play, she goes for the book bin. I’m very proud of her.”

Broadway is about to get a little more of Uncle Jesse, Maddie, and Charlotte when John Stamos, Cybill Shepherd, and Kristin Davis join the cast of the twice-extended revival of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man.
The newcomers to the show will step into the roles currently played by Eric McCormack, Candice Bergen and Kerry Butler, respectively, when the trio departs on July 8. Elizabeth Ashley will also step into the play, replacing Angela Lansbury beginning on July 24.
Although The Best Man failed to take home a trophy at this year’s Tony Awards, the politically-charged play–about two mudslinging presidential candidates vying for endorsements at their party’s national convention–has seen steady grosses and an average 85-percent house capacity since its opening in April. The production has extended its limited engagement twice already, but is scheduled to end its run on September 9.
Current stars John Larroquette, James Earl Jones, and Jefferson Mays are set to remain with the production until it closes. (Source)
