entertainment Updated: Oct 05, 2010 01:04 IST

Actor Elizabeth Hurley has made it to the Guinness World Records after lighting 39 iconic world landmarks as part of a new Estee Lauder breast cancer awareness initiative.

Hurley has been the cosmetics company’s celebrity breast cancer champion for the past 15 years and for 24 hours across on Thursday and Friday she helped turn monuments around the globe pink.

She was in New York to flick the switch on the Empire State Building’s lights, and other landmarks to be turned pink included the Sydney Opera House in Australia and the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel in Mumbai.

The effort took her from Melbourne in Australia to Dubai to Tokyo, before culminating with the Empire State Building.
