THINK PINK: Elizabeth Hurley joined Leonard Lauder in celebrating Estée Lauder’s 40th anniversary at Harrods and highlighting Breast Cancer Awareness month on Tuesday. Hurley, dressed in a pink Ralph Lauren evening gown, helped Lauder cut the ribbon on the Estée Lauder counter at Harrods’ newly refurbished cosmetics hall, known as the White Hall. Later, the two stepped outside and flipped a switch that turned Harrods’ storefront pink — thanks to more than 11,000 special lightbulbs. Estée Lauder has also launched a range of jeweled powder and fragrance compacts to mark the occasion. One of them is a Harrods-shaped compact — priced at $525 — and decorated with colored enamel and diamante stones with Pleasures solid perfume inside. The pink-ribbon golden powder compact is decorated with a ribbon of pink crystals and costs $67, which will be donated to Beast Cancer Campaign and Breast Cancer Care.
