Rachel Zoe, Anne Hathaway, Kate Beckinsale and More Talk About Why Elyse Walker’s Pink Party Is So Close To Their HeartsOct 21, 2013 @ 5:25 pm
From the 1,500 pink Bavarian cupcakes on the menu to the rose-hued attire on the red carpet, the evening was all about shades of pink at the annual Elyse Walker’s Pink Party at Hangar 8 in the Santa Monica Airport, where celebrities came together to help raise funds to battle women’s cancers for Cedars -Sinai’s Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute. “Since 2005, Elyse has brought together friends and family to remind us that we are all in this together, we can do this together,” said the host of the evening, Anne Hathaway, in a speech that brought guests to tears. “By the end of this evening, we will have raised over $9 million for the Cedars-Sinai cancer program.” Brooke Burke Charvet, Maria Bello, Kate Beckinsale, Brenda Song, and Rachel Zoe all made an appearance in support of beating cancer. “It’s always great to see everybody come together for things like this because I think most of the people in this room have been touched by cancer on some level,” Zoe said to InStyle.com. The night continued with a silent auction that included everything from a Porsche to handbags and a fashion show where models took to a 50-foot runway sporting Chloe, J. Mendel, Lanvin and Valentino looks. With an event dedicated on raising funds for women’s cancer research and care, we asked star attendees why this cause is close to their hearts–click to see what guests responded with!
We’re calling it — the blonde pixie is officially the hairstyle of 2013 thanks to the drastic looks worn by Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway and, most recently, Beyoncé. A pixie cut makes a bold statement in itself, but when combined with the icy platinum hue, the classic style gets an added dose of edge. Cyrus was one of the first to kick off the trend when she shed her good-girl layers for a punk rock crop, only to be followed by Hathaway in May, and Beyoncé, who made the dramatic change just Wednesday night with the help of hairstylist Neal Farinah and colorist Rita Hazan. If the recent lineup of platinum pixies has you wanting to follow suit, keep in mind that the style should be touched up often to keep its shape. Short crops tend to start growing out within a month, so if you aren’t keen on frequenting the salon, ask your stylist to add texture to your ends so they aren’t as blunt. This helps the style grow out gracefully, allowing you to wait a little longer in between trims. And if you’re wondering whether you should cut your hair before or after you color it, we say you should make the chop first. Split ends can get emphasized when going for a lighter color, so cutting your hair prior to coloring ensures that you start with a clean slate.

In case you missed Girl Rising in theaters this past March, you can catch it tonight on CNN for its international television debut. The Richard Robbins-directed documentary follows nine girls from Africa to India, and illustrates how attending school is often a challenge. The film explores how a proper education can change the lives of girls growing up in underprivileged communities around the globe—and consequently change the world. Catching Hollywood’s attention, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek (who is also our July cover girl), Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, Meryl Streep, Selena Gomez, Cate Blanchett and others lent their voices to help narrate the inspiring film. In a recent effort to call attention to the Girl Rising movement, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, a longtime advocate for children’s education, wrote an open letter to the “girls of the world” inciting the need for change and support by stating, “if we want all girls everywhere to rise up, then we must find them, befriend them and support them…If one girl with courage is a revolution, imagine what feats we can achieve together.” Because, as Beyonce says, “Who runs the world? Girls.” Visit 10x10act.org to learn how you can get involved, and tune in tonight for the film’s debut. Check here for local listings.

The fashion world is in mourning: Annabel Tollman, former fashion director and stylist to the stars, passed away in her sleep last week at age 39. The British stylist became known for her her ability to highlight the female figure, which led her to dress a range of body types and personalities in Hollywood, including Scarlett Johansson (in Valentino), Anne Hathaway (in Nina Ricci), the Olsen twins, and Kristen Wiig (in J. Mendel). Her sartorial vision, her keen eye, and her old-Hollywood glamour aesthetic will be missed. In her memory, click to see several of the memorable celebrity looks she put together for the red carpet.

After spending three-and-a-half weeks as a blonde, Anne Hathaway has returned to her brunette roots! Transitioning to a darker shade like Hathaway runs the risk of fading due to the light base underneath. If you’re going for a similar change, consider investing in a color depositing conditioner to keep your hue from shifting. We’re obsessed with Evo’s Fabuloso Conditioner ($40; evohair.com), which has color pigments blended into the formula to give your shade a boost. So, which hair color do you prefer on Anne?
