Geralyn Lucas, the breast cancer survivor who wrote "Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy," wore Chanel Red Dream lipstick to speak to almost 500 women at last Wednesday's 2008 Breast Service Luncheon at the Pierre Hotel, where Carmen Marc Valvo also showed his fall collection. Lucas added that she also wore Spanx — to suck herself into her black suit (the top of which was Elie Tahari) — and the Giuseppe Zanottis that she wore to the Emmys, where the Lifetime Original Movie version of her book was nominated. When Lucas had gone through breast cancer a decade earlier, she'd been treated by Dr. Alison Estabrook, who was honored at the luncheon for Beth Israel Medical Center and St. Luke's and Roosevelt Hospitals. "Had I not seen Dr. Estabrook, the title of my book would have been 'Why I Wore Lipstick to My Lumpectomy,'" Lucas said. Valvo, a colon cancer survivor, donated a dress to be auctioned at the benefit, which raised about $700,000.
