Kate Winslet scored more than “just” an Oscar two weeks back…she also received a stunning makeup confection, part of the special limited series of 2009 Red Carpet Compacts that L’Oréal Paris and Carelle created to honor the tradition of gloriously talented film and television actresses.
Ms. Winslett received the “Courage”---a jaw dropping bejewled creation with rich purple amethysts “for strength and stability”and red rhodolite stones that offer “protection from fear and anxiety.” The compact also sparkles with diamonds too that “represent excellence and achievement.”
Though the latest eBay Giving Works charity auction that served up this stunning compact to bids from us regular folks---all to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is over…there is another auction featuring a another stunning compact set April 22nd- for during the Tribeca Film Festival.
