Explore the legendary stylist’s works with icons the likes of Princess Diana. Lexi Boling, model du jour and face of Prada’s newest fragrance, shares what it takes to stay pretty—with sass. Doing a cat eye I try and keep the retro look going. I love the make-up in the [Prada Candy Kiss] campaign. A smokey eye that’s natural but not too crazy is my favourite. Top beauty tip Be natural. Our bodies are made to do their thing, and other than water spray, I don’t use much. Beauty essentials Nerium day and night cream, Olaplex for my hair, and Evian water spray. Favourite note in a fragrance What I look for in a scent is something that draws on a memory, or is provocative in a way; a scent that triggers something special, isn’t overpowering, and plays off well on your own personality. Thoughts on Candy Kiss I was refreshed immediately! I was told it’s all in the musk, which at the same time, has a touch of sweetness that still smells like the original Candy. Energy booster to keep you going Coffee, coffee, coffee! Health habits I eat whatever I want and just do yoga when I feel I need to. Workout routines I’ve always been quite thin so staying fit has been pretty easy, but to stay long and lean, a good hot yoga session does the trick. Over winter, I snowboard a lot, which is a killer workout. Place to indulge Sweetchick in Lower East Side, New York. I love fried chicken.
