L'Oréal honored five women for their achievements and contributions to science through groundbreaking research at the fourth annual L'Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science awards, held last Thursday at the American Museum of Natural History.
"We're providing an aopportunity for many women to participate as we help give the momentum to move forward in many ways," said Beatrice Dautresme, L'Oréal's executive vice president of communications and external relations. "Women are underrepresented in science, and our hope is to change that. We're addressing the gap in young girls' exposure to science by providing them with role models."
The five recipients were scientists Jaime Barnes, Sarah Clinton, Julie Huber, Maria Krisch and Kim Woodrow. Dr. Sally Ride, the first American woman to fly in space, was also honored with the L'Oréal USA for Women in Science Role Model Award for her role in helping to shape the image of women in science.
"Research has showed that in middle school around fifth grade is when we begin to lose students interested in science," said Ride. "It's important to support and sustain women's interest in science through programs like this, showing that science is creative and collaborative. It's up to all of us through efforts like this to help young women of today to achieve their own dreams."
Each winner received a $40,000 grant, which will be put toward their independent scientific research. The fellowship also helps strengthen networks in the scientific community and provides professional development workshops with women leaders across industries.
As of January, L'Oréal organizations in 22 countries have held National Fellowship ceremonies, including Brazil, United Kingdom, China, Canada, Czech Republic and Finland.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
