The most famous jeans fit model of our time — who earned the nickname "best butt in the business" — is, at 38, nowhere near ready to hang up her thong. During the decade or so that Paige Adams-Geller was working five days a week with back-to-back fittings for denim labels like Guess, 7 For All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, and True Religion, she was also pocketing a ton of business savvy. "Designing is as much art as engineering," she says. "I knew I could make jeans that do what women need them to do: lift the rear, elongate the legs, and shrink the hips." That her two-year-old Paige Premium Denim line has fans in Hollywood (like Jessica Alba) as well as in London, Paris, Dubai, and Tokyo is, she thinks, proof of the eternal allure of the L.A. lady. The onetime Miss California personifies West Coast casual luxury and goes so far as to give her denim styles names like Malibu Beach, Melrose, and Hollywood Hills. So how does Adams-Geller maintain that California-girl glow when flying around the world promoting her line, meeting clients, and making appearances on The Tyra Banks Show and Fox & Friends?

Here's what she told us:

1. LAVENDER-SCENTED EYE MASK: "I grew up in Alaska, so during the long summer nights, I always loved blackout masks with lavender inside. The scent calms me."

2. VALERIE BEVERLY HILLS BRONZER: "I apply this all over my face and neck, and it gives me a believable glow-like I've been on vacation even when I haven't."

3. CLÉ DE PEAU UNDEREYE CREAM: "Plane air parches my skin, especially my undereyes, and makes my eyes puffy, so I often carry this on board. I also find it helps minimize fine lines."
