Revlon supported women’s health with a star-studded philanthropic luncheon at the Chateau Marmont on Tuesday.
“It’s because of women,” said chairman Ronald O. Perelman. “I want to see if we can find a way to protect the next generation of women with a complete cure so women will not be burdened with the dread of [cancer].”
While Perelman is working on eradicating worry for ladies of the future, current stars like Anjelica Huston, Halle Berry, Rashida Jones, Jennifer Hudson, Courteney Cox, Ciara, Rachel Zoe, Julianne Hough and Sara and Erin Foster braved the heat as they sauntered across the red carpet.
“Is it hot enough for you,” Huston laughed before praising Perelman. “I love what Ron Perelman does, and Revlon is a really amazing company. The work with UCLA is really necessary, particularly in a world like America that still doesn’t fund medicine in a way that it should.”
Inside, guests were able to escape the degrees as they sat down under the patio’s covering. As the three-course meal was served, Dr. Dennis J. Slamon (who was being honored for his work in oncology) also dished facts about his industry’s progression to a thunderous applause from the crowd.
But it was Dr. Slamon’s former patient, Karla Dolce, who received a standing ovation after sharing her breast cancer survival story. Dolce even inspired celebs to make a beeline for compliments. “I’m honored you’re wearing my dress,” Zoe gushed. “I love what you’re doing. Let me take a picture with you.”
