JAIME WINSTONE AND ASH STYMEST WANT TO SAVE THE TIGERS

Jaime Winstone and Ash Stymest get up close and personal with a Swarovski-studded tiger’s head (not a real one, duh) made by artist Lauren Baker – all in the name of raising money for the Save Wild Tigers charity.

We love it when celebrities, shiny things and fierce animals collide. So Jaime Winstone and Ash Stymest posing with a life-sized tiger head sculpture, encrusted with 35,000 Swarovski crystals? Believe us when we say this photoshoot by Louie Banks hits all our buttons.

But there’s a great story behind it too. British artist Lauren Baker, better known for her mosaic work with animal skulls, made ‘Crystal Tiger’ for Save Wild Tigers, a charity that raises conservation funds for one of the world’s most magnificent big cats. Enter Jaime Winstone to sprinkle a little bit of stardust onto an already glittery project.

“I love tigers so this is an amazing project to be involved in,” Winstone said. “Lauren Baker’s sculpture is so powerful – she does justice to the majestic creature. It’s down to our generation to save wild tigers.”

There are only 3,500 tigers left in the wild – in fact, wild tigers could become extinct within 10 years due to deforestation, urbanization and the illegal trade of tiger parts.

But this particular story, at least has a happy ending. The artwork was auctioned on 21st March after being exhibited in Asia House and bought by Elaine and Chris Fairfax of pet insurance firm Animal Friends for £10,500.
