ELLE magazine has announced the line-up for this year’s 17th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration.
ELLE, together with presenting sponsors Calvin Klein Collection, Calvin Klein Beauty, L’Oréal Paris, and David Yurman, will bring together an intimate group of Hollywood’s best and brightest talent for a celebratory dinner honoring women’s achievements in film at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills Hotel on October 18, 2010.
The tribute features a diverse group of women who have had a profound impact on the film industry.

Several of today’s most acclaimed actresses will also be honored: Diane Kruger, Kate Hudson and Kerry Washington. Emerging actress Jessica Chastain (“Tree of Life”, “Stolen”) will receive the Calvin Klein Collection Emerging Star Spotlight Award.
