Slender AnnaLynne McCord opens Vegas fundraiser with her even slimmer younger sister


She's known for playing the kind of ultra-sleek vixens to whom a slender figure is as vital and necessary as a loaded gun to an assassin.

But it seems AnnaLynne McCord hasn't starved herself into a tiny dress size for her art, as her younger sister is even more slender.

The 24-year-old 90210 star opened a charity event in Las Vegas last night with waif-like younger sister Rachel, 23.

Little and er, little: AnnaLynne McCord and sister Rachel launched the Women Rebuild for the St. Bernard Project held at Pure in Las Vegas last night

The pair's matching dainty frames - and that of third sister Angel, who did not attend the event at Caesar's Palace - suggest that their slightness is down to their good old Georgia genes.

And these Southern belles haven't forgotten their heritage, as the event last night was to promote a foundation that is striving to help rebuild the lives destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and the oil spill.

Their website explains: 'St. Bernard Project is an award-winning rebuilding, nonprofit organization whose mission is to remove physical, mental and emotional barriers for vulnerable families, senior citizens and disabled residents who are struggling to recover from the devastation and trauma caused by Hurricane Katrina and the oil spill.'

Known for her remarkable efforts and involvement in various charities including this project, McCord - who plays rich teenager Naomi Clark in 90210 - dedicated her evening to raising awareness and funds to support its work.

The stunning actress hit the red carpet just after midnight wearing a turquoise dress and diamond studded heels and posed for photos with 41- year-old boyfriend Dominic Purcell and sister Rachel.

Later McCord sipped on champagne, vodka cocktails and partied into the early hours of the morning in the VIP area of the club.

Despite their 17-year age difference, AnnaLynne McCord, 24, says she has a lot in common with her 41-year-old actor beau Dominic Purcell.

She told Us Weekly recently: 'We met doing a project and we connected over a conversation about how we were moving away from L.A.

'I just bought a townhouse [somewhere else in California]. We were trying to get away from all of it. We live far away, near the beach.'

The beauty, who dated Twilight pin-up Kellan Lutz, 26 , before meeting Purcell, also told the magazine that there are many perks to dating an older man.

She said: 'We have healthy debates, which I absolutely love. At the very end of the conversation we will both go, 'I respect your opinion. I disagree with you. But I respect your opinion because I love you.

I'm like the little girl who loves school and love learning, especially from a man who is so intelligent and so worldly, it's nice to learn some things.'
