Dreams came true for Look Good, Feel Better on Monday evening.

That's because the organization — a collaborative effort between the American Cancer Society, the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association and the National Cosmetology Association — received a $2.2 million check, with funds raised at the 23rd annual DreamBall. The event, held at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan, honored Eric Thoreux, formerly president of Coty Beauty Americas, and Robert M. Amen, chairman and chief executive officer of International Flavors & Fragrances.

This year's DreamGirl — traditionally, a female cancer survivor — was Jayne Jamison, vice president and publisher of Seventeen magazine and a breast cancer survivor. "I didn't believe that I was a DreamGirl, even though my husband always told me I was," Jamison cracked. "Now I have third-party endorsement."

The evening even got a touch of stardust from Kimora Lee Simmons and her beau, Djimon Hounsou, who showed up to support Thoreux — while at Coty, Thoreux helped launch Simmons' Baby Phat fragrance collection. A second freestanding scent, Fabulosity, will join her lineup this fall, and Simmons said she also has two additional flankers to her Goddess fragrance lineup coming out in the spring. "I'd also like to do a [fragrance] splash for my daughters," Simmons added.

Look Good, Feel Better helps women with cancer deal with the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, by schooling them in beauty techniques and providing them with makeup. The organization estimates that more than 550,000 women have participated in the program since its founding in 1989.
