Following in the fashionable footsteps of Milla Jovovich and Helena Christensen, Renée Zellweger is lending her famous face to Tommy Hilfiger’s latest breast cancer awareness campaign. The actress is stepping out in support of his new, limited-edition handbag, the proceeds of which will benefit Breast Health International. “Because of the experiences of close friends and family members who have had to endure and battle the challenges of breast cancer, I am a passionate supporter of breast health education and charitable causes,” Zellweger said in a release. “I am honored and grateful to be partnering with Tommy Hilfiger to raise awareness and funds to support the invaluable work of Breast Health International.” The handbag (above), which Zellweger toted to an event in Milan this week, is tan suede, and features herringbone lining and gold trim. Made from natural, vegetable-tanned leather, the purse retails for $299, with $100 from each sale benefiting BHI. Since first launching this initiative in 2007, the brand has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the charity. Pick up your bag beginning May 6 at Tommy Hilfiger stores, select department stores and on tommy.com. –Kate Hogan
