Bloomingdale’s just can’t get enough of Hollywood. Academy-award nominee Renée Zellweger, the embodiment of female power and glamour, displayed her promotional side Tuesday when she came to Bloomingdale’s 59th Street to introduce the store’s exclusive cosmetic bag collection from Nick & Nora, being sold in the new “Down With Love” shop. The shop, inspired by the movie of the same name starring Zellweger, sells ready-to-wear, accessories and Stila cosmetics influenced by the 1960s, including collections from Anna Sui, Shoshanna, Anne Klein, Mag, Laundry, Carolee and Lu Lu Guinness. Bloomingdale’s “Down with Love” shops will be in New York, Miami, Boston, New Jersey, White Plains and Los Angeles stores.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of the bag will go to UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, a charity chosen by Zellweger. The bag is available in three styles; traincase, $30; medium oval $24, and small oval, $20.
