On May 17, actress Zelda Williams joined skincare brand Philosophy and its Hope & Grace Initiative, as she host a luncheon to celebrate their new “How Are You Really?” PSA and National Campaign and recognize Mental Health Awareness Month.
Taking place at Fig & Olive on Melrose Ave. in West Hollywood, the event was presented along with National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) which is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness.
Zelda, the daughter of the late legendary actor Robin Williams, led the conversation and looked gorgeous in a Jean-Paul Gautier vintage dress styled with a vintage 1950’s Chanel Brown bag and vintage belt/heels. To loosen up before her speech she noshed on pasta and white wine. She was joined by good friends Rumer Willis and Katrina Bowden.
Other celebs in attendance included Michelle Trachtenberg, Becca Tobin, Rachel McCord and Morgan Stewart, who was the very first honoree for NAMI at the 1st Hope and Grace luncheon as a leader in the industry.
Philosophy’s hope & grace initiative represents an unprecedented and unending commitment by philosophy to support mental health and well-being. With the initiative, philosophy becomes the first company to place a deep focus on this important cause and the first major beauty company to make a brand-wide commitment to dedicate 1% of its U.S. net sales toward the cause through the hope and grace fund, a project of the New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity that hosts and incubates a range of innovative and effective public interest projects in conservation, global health, public policy, international development, education, disaster recovery, and the arts.
