With tomorrow’s Emmy nominations beginning the lead-up to Hollywood awards season in September, calendars are beginning to fill with events riding the celebrity wave. Glamour magazine is staking its claim on Emmy weekend to present a brunch on Sept. 17, the day before the awards, in support the National Women’s History Museum and its Los Angeles Regional Council. The event will honor women across the entertainment, lifestyle and beauty industries including Tracee Ellis Ross, Rachel Zoe, Abigail Breslin and Toni Ko, with the aim to generate awareness of the Women’s History Museum and the importance of preserving women’s history. The proposals are already in to build a museum on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
The 2016 honorees have more ties to fashion and Hollywood than those at the event’s four prior incarnations, so Emmy weekend seemed like a fitting date. Ross was nominated for a 2016 Primetime Emmy Award for her leading actress role on NBC’s “Black-ish”; Zoe, the celebrity stylist turned fashion and beauty entrepreneur; Breslin, the Oscar-nominated actress and star of Fox’s “Scream Queens”; and Ko, founder of NYX Cosmetics and Perverse Sunglasses, will all figure into the mix at many events that weekend.
“This event presents a unique opportunity for us to illuminate female role models and their successes are an inspiration for future generations of girls and boys” said the museum’s president and chief executive officer Joan Wages. “For too long women’s contributions and achievements have been left out of the historical narrative and it’s time to ensure that they are included to complete America’s story.”
The event will be held at The Montage Beverly Hills with sponsors Pandora Jewelry, Shiseido and Earth Friendly Products.
