A mere two years ago, the famously bold-browed Hilary Rhoda segued from Catholic-high-school jock to glamazon when labels like Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, and Balenciaga booked her to grace their catwalks. Healthy, smiling, fresh-faced, all-American-wow! Kinda nice after the sunken-cheeked, sullen-faced size zeroes we'd been seeing. Estée Lauder wasted no time and snapped up Rhoda as the newest "face" for the brand's skincare and makeup advertising. But not one to buy into hype, Rhoda, a former field hockey-playing tomboy from Maryland, insists she's still a student when it comes to grooming and is eager to learn from industry pros. Here's a peek at some tips and tools she has picked up so far.
1. BUMBLE AND BUMBLE DOES IT ALL STYLING SPRAY
"When I'm not working, I give my hair a day off. Just a touch of this spray adds polish without much fuss."
2. SWIM GOGGLES, TENNIS RACKET, BALLET SLIPPERS
"I played field hockey and lacrosse in high school, but to stay in shape now, I swim, play tennis, or dance."
"I don't go anywhere without my black YSL aviator-style sunglasses. My light eyes tend to be really sun-sensitive."
4. LOGICS COLOR NOURISHING SHAMPOO
"I don't color my hair, but I do suffer damage from the constant curling, ironing, and blowouts I endure on photo shoots. This gentle shampoo and its corresponding Logics conditioner are my protection."
5. ESTÉE LAUDER PLEASURES
"I like a light, floral fragrance on girls my age."
6. ORIGINS NOURISHING OIL:
"When I don't have time for a real massage, I smooth this on to relax."
