We all know the ins and outs of wardrobe staples — a plain white tee, dark denim, and a timeless LBD come to mind — but the same goes for beauty. We wanted to find out the exact must-have products that our favorite fashion insiders never leave home without: the go-to goodies that instantly put a pep in our most stylish friends’ steps. This week, model Lily Cole spills her secret to great skin.
On Tuesday afternoon, we had the honor of attending Fashion 4 Development‘s second annual First Ladies Luncheon at The Pierre Hotel. The organization was created in 1996 by Bibi Russell to empower global communities through the fashion and beauty industries, and entrepreneur Evie Evangelou relaunched it in 2011. As such, the luncheon was attended by fashion industry folk, First Ladies, and Royals, and we felt completely out of our element. But model Lily Cole wasn’t even fazed. “No disrespect to anybody in the room, but I don’t get starstruck!” she laughed. “I’m honored, very honored to be here.”
When observing last night’s red carpets, the phrase “dressing for the occasion” comes to mind. At the United Nations‘ Every Woman Every Child dinner, stars like Christy Turlington-Burns, Lily Cole, and Debra Messing wore modest and subdued ensembles. But over in Sydney, Australia at Cosmopolitan‘s Fun Fearless Female Awards, the ladies either went with short and tight, or long and sheer.
Earlier this month, we caught a glimpse at what Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Karen Elson, and more models were wearing at the Olympics’s Closing Ceremony. Tonight, we got a look at the supers in action on the telly, and it was nothing short of amazing and fantastic.
We were so enamored with Kate Middleton‘s sleek Roksanda Ilincic frock and chic updo at the Creative Industries Reception that we barely noticed others at the event. Fancy Brits like Stella McCartney, Lily Cole, and Fearne Cotton hung out with Kate, and totally made us jealous. While the Duchess obviously wins best dressed, who came in at a close second?
After seducing us in countless spreads and campaigns with her signature red locks and voluptuous curves, England’s favorite babyface beauty Lily Cole has recently announced her decision to depart from the modeling world to further her budding acting career. But, realistically, what are her chances of success?
Can’t say we ever thought we’d see the day when “the goggle” made a comeback… But it seems our favorite hip hop-loving virgin Kenny might have just finally scored himself a honey, er, homey? Yes, that is Lily Cole. And yes, it appears she is wearing orange-colored goggles with neither a lap pool nor a ski slope in sight.
Model Lily Cole wore a very gold and very, very mini-dress to Dior dinner at the Cannes film festival. What do think?
