    Marie Claire editor-in-chief Trish Halpin, Sarah Brown, Lorraine Pascale and a whole host of inspirational British women descended on London’s W Hotel for the launch of our 2011 Inspire & Mentor campaign.

    Held to celebrate the leading female figures from the worlds of fashion, beauty, business, politics and science, the event marked the launch our new campaign, in association with The Prince’s Trust, which will offer Marie Claire readers the chance to be mentored by 25 of the most influential women in Britain.

    A truly inspirational evening, speeches from Trish, Lorraine and Prince’s Trust success story Rebecca Taylor not only pulled at the heartstrings, but also revealed the power of mentoring and how it can transform lives.
