How often do you get to watch a woman shave her legs for charity?
Svetlana Pankratova -- whose legs, at four feet, four inches each, are the longest in the world -- will be at the Kiehl's store on Thursday, razor in hand. It's a publicity stint for the culty apothecary's Close Shaverettes Simply Mahvelous Legs Shave Cream, but it's also a clever fundraiser: For each of Svetlana's strokes, Kiehl's will donate $44 to the Lower Eastside Girls Club, the excellent non-profit opening up opportunities to the city's low-income girls.
Best part: Kiehl's is also holding a contest you can enter to guess how long -- down to the second -- it takes Svetlana to shave her towering pins. The closest guess wins a year's worth of shaving cream.
