Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Beauty -

You’re the new face of Rouge uge Dior. Do you think of lip­stick ick as a tool of se­duc­tion? Well, it has been one for a long time. The Hol­ly­wood screen god­desses es of the past re­ally em­pha­sised that. at. Our fond­est mem­o­ries of Mar­i­lyn yn Mon­roe, Lauren Ba­call, Rita Hay­worth or Mar­lene Di­et­rich are im­printed with daz­zling smiles and sen­sual mouths. More­over, they all were very fond nd of Rouge Dior. I’m sure Chris­tian Dior thought that lip­stick was an es­sen­tial en­tial weapon of se­duc­tion when he first st cre­ated it. The colour and the ges­ture ure still make magic. And why is red your favourite? e? As Chris­tian Dior would say, “It’s the e colour of life!” I reg­u­larly wear lip­stick, k, of­ten in a more nat­u­ral colour. I put it on spon­ta­neously, with­out even think­ing ng about it. But for spe­cial oc­ca­sions, I like brighter or richer shades such as Trafal­gar. r. On the red car­pet, I wear 999, over and over again. It’s unique, very vi­brant, and prob­a­bly the red­dest of reds. Tips for wear­ing red lip­stick? Check your teeth of­ten! Noth­ing is worse than lip­stick on your teeth. [ laughs] What beauty trend ex­cites you for the mo­ment? The Dior team tells me that the French man­i­cure is mak­ing a come­back, and I must say I am pretty happy about that. It’s clas­sic. Who were your beauty idols grow­ing up? My mother, who is very nat­u­ral and ra­di­ant. And my grand­mother, who is quite dif­fer­ent – she’s very stylish and loves jew­ellery and Portman on the set, film­ing the new ad m make-up. Each em­bod­ies vary­ing facets of fem­i­nin­ity that I love. They help me re­alise that ev­ery woman can be in­di­vid­u­ally beau­ti­ful. Ear­li­est mem­ory of beauty? I re­mem­ber us­ing a plum lip stain that was wa sim­i­lar to my own lips – just like I had bit­ten bi my lips. And a face glit­ter called “fairy dust”. What scents re­mind you of your childhood? Def­i­nitely apri­cot pop­si­cles and sea salt. Can’t live with­out? An or­ganic mois­tur­is­ing cream for ev­ery­day use, Diorskin Nude com­pact, and, of course, that very red Rouge Dior lip­stick for spe­cial oc­ca­sions. There are many new fit­ness regimes out there. Which one helped you get back in shape so soon af­ter hav­ing your baby? I run, swim, and some­times do gy­ro­ton­ics. You once said: “It is too easy not to en­gage in the world.” How do you y stay en­gaged and in­formed? Ev­ery­thing that hap­pens in the world speaks to me on a very deep level. We have a pes­ti­cide-free gar­den, I com­post reg­u­larly, and am a strict veg­e­tar­ian. Be­sides that, I al­ways get in­volved in ini­tia­tives I be­lieve in when­ever I get the chance. With Dior, we de­cided to do­nate the prof­its from a Rouge Dior shade of my choice to the Free the Chil­dren as­so­ci­a­tion, which supports vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren. Their unique phi­los­o­phy based on the help and in­volve­ment of chil­dren from pros­per­ous coun­tries par­tic­u­larly ap­pealed to me.
