Elizabeth Hurley at Selfridges for Breast Cancer Awareness

This year sees the 20th anniversary of the Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign and to celebrate this Estée Lauder Spokesperson and Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign Ambassador, Elizabeth Hurley, made a very special appearance at Selfridges on Oxford Street last Monday. It was soooooo exciting!

I was invited along by Estee Lauder to interview the lady herself and oh my goodness, she looked amazing!!! Elizabeth Hurley is even more gorgeous in real life than I expected. She's absolutely stunning!


Elizabeth arrived at Selfridges for an hour of meeting and greeting customers in the beauty hall,  to raise funds for the The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Anyone that bought something from the 2012 Evelyn Lauder Dream Collection got to meet Elizabeth and have their purchase signed.

And when she did arrive I thought I was going to implode! She was gorgeous. I cannot believe she is 47!!! Here she is waiting with Shane Warne and his son, Jackson Warne while William Lauder addressed the audience.

William Lauder explained how successful advances in breast cancer research have been over the years and how survival rates are increasing, which is why it is so important to continue to support the cause.

William Lauder introduced Elizabeth Hurley as his "great friend" and she came up in all her glory to tell us more about the campaign.

She explained how Estee Lauder's Breast Cancer Awareness foundation was started by William Lauder's mother, Evelyn Lauder, who sadly died last year. Elizabeth described Evelyn Lauder as a "'magnificent woman who did unbelievable things for breast cancer in her life time". She explained how the foundation has raised more than 380 million dolllars for breast cancer research but more funds are still needed.

And then Elizabeth Hurley got right on to raising those funds by meeting and greeting every person who bought something from the breast cancer collection. She was so kind and friendly and charming to every single person. I love her!!
