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

When actress Renée Zellweger hits the red carpet, she always looks the epitome of chic sophistication–like someone sprinkled her with a little old-school Hollywood fairy dust before she left the house. That someone is more often than not her friend and go-to designer Carolina Herrera, whose gowns the actress has been wearing both on and off the red carpet for years. “It’s classic. It’s beautifully tailored. No surprises,” she sums up in the November issue of British Harper’s Bazaar, on which she stars on the cover. And it’s not just a sense loyalty or fashion sense that stops the 41-year-old actress from going elsewhere. Zellweger says her upbringing in a small Texan town with conservative, hard-working parents instilled a sense of decency and frugality in her from an early age. “I can’t have 90 people making things for me that I might not wear,” she states adamantly. “To have so many people expend so much effort potentially for nothing – I wouldn’t sleep at night.” A Hollywood actress with style and a conscience? Now that’s something worth celebrating. The November issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, is on sale beginning Thursday, Oct. 7. - Monique Jessen
