To congratulate her on her win, L’Oréal Paris and Carelle created a 2009 Red Carpet Compact which was gifted to Best Actress Winner, Kate Winslet. The compact, entitled “Courage,” features amethyst, red rhodolite, and diamonds.
To capture the essence of the red carpet, Carelle turned to red rhodolite stones that are said to offer “protection from fear and anxiety.” The red stones were combined with rich purple amethyst which a Carelle spokesperson said were meant to evoke “strength and mental stability” while the glistening diamonds were chosen to “play to the excitement of the night.”
The same limited edition compacted gifted to Kate Winslet will be listed for auction through eBay Giving Works with all funds generated benefiting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF).
The compact, with a retail value of $9,050, will be auctioned on www.ebay.com/lorealparis on the evening of February 22 through March 1 with an opening bid of $500.
