Winfield House was lit pink to celebrate the Estee Lauder companies’ breast cancer campaign 25-year milestone.

Twenty-five years ago the Estee Lauder Group launched the Breast Cancer awareness Pink Ribbon campaign. It is the brainchild of former Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Penney and Evelyn Lauder who is known as “one of the most energetic campaigners in the fight against breast cancer”. This is how the pink ribbon became the symbol of breast cancer awareness today.

This month the campaign is marking its 25th anniversary in a number of different ways across the different brands and product ranges. One of the ways in which the milestone is being celebrated is through an event at Winfield House, the residence of the Ambassador of the United States of America to the Court of St. James’s. The residence was lit up pink to honour and celebrate the anniversary of both the campaign and the late Evelyn Lauder.

The event was hosted by the Ambassador of the United States of America to the United Kingdom, Robert Wood Johnson and his wife Suzanne alongside William P. Lauder, Evelyn’s son and chairman of Estee Lauder Companies.

We are all guilty of trying to recreate our favourite celebrity’s hairstyle at some point in our lives. But, I’m not sure this is one that we will be lining up outside the barber shop for…

Brave the buzz

The buzz cut seems to be creeping its way up as the new ‘it’ hairstyle amongst celebrities at the moment. And we have to admit, although we may not be rushing out ourselves to imitate it, their boldness and bravery is to be admired. With ladies such as Cara Delevigne, Katy Perry, and Zoe Kravitz embracing the barely there hairstyle, the change is refreshing and we definitely think they can pull it off.

Why now? Perhaps it comes off the back of this new age feminism; women across the globe, particularly in a position of influence, using it as an opportunity to break down the barriers of gender, because the buzz cut without a doubt obscures the way we perceive femininity. However, that being said, we can confirm that each of the ladies still maintain a sense of flawless femininity as they sport their new do’s. Their womanhood is by no means jeopardized. We think that in of its own sense is even more empowering.

In celebration of the controversial female buzz cut, we’ve rounded up a few of the best celeb buzz cut moments – both current, and past. 

Zoë Kravitz

Kicking off the first of several bleached buzz-cuts is singer, actress and model Zoe Kravitz who embraced the cut earlier this year.

Katy Perry

Another A-lister joining in is Katy Perry, who has named her cut the "Ellen" (DeGeneres)

Cate Blanchett

The Australian actress has admitted to shaving her hair into a number 2 during high school and revisited the style for a movie in 2002, proving the style in timeless

The pixie cut is supermodel Agyness Deyn's signature look, and it doesn't show signs of leaving anytime soon.

Alek Wek

South Sudanese-British model and designer Alek Wek has been hailed for her influence on the perception of beauty in the fashion industry. A real buzz cut loyal.

Kristen Stewart

Another one to joined the bleached buzz-cut forces this year is Kristen Stewart, who adores the style for its practicality. 

Natalie Portman

Sheer contrast to her usual girl-next-door look, Natalie Portman transforms herself into girl-in-the-next city, embracing the closely shaven look.

Arguable the biggest supermodel of the moment, Cara Delevigne took to Instagram to explain the reasons behind her drastic hair change earlier in the year.
