EST 2017 | Your Source For All Things Lorraine Bracco

While working as a model in France, Lorraine was approached by Marc Camoletti to act in the adaption of his play Duos Sur Canapé. She portrayed the character Bubble and was not impressed with her performance. She would later go on to take other film roles but it wasn’t until she had an uncredited role in Camorra that she was inspired to pursue acting.

Today is the start of Go Red For Women, 2018. So for a “Flashback Friday”, here are images of Lorraine attending the Go Red For Women Awards in 2007. The awards were held on February 1st, 2007 in honor of American Heart month and she wore a specially designed dress for the occasion. The dress was designed by Michael Vollbracht and consisted of a red silk taffeta skirt/shirt combination. It was completed with a black belt with Campbell’s Soup logo on it, Campbells donated money towards the cause. The dress was eventually auctioned off in order to help raise money for Go Red For Women. Prior to this event, Lorraine also attended the Go Red For Women Foundation hosted by Joy Behar, on January 31st.

On September 19th, 2017 Lorraine after being away from New York for years attended the launch of Hope Fragrance. 100 % of the proceeds from the sales of the fragrance went to mental health research. The fragrance was also exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue where the launch even was held last year. Lorraine was quoted saying she was“so friggin’ excited to be here and walk the streets and look at the people.” This comes after her 6 year stint on the succesful TNT drama, Rizzoli and Isles.
