On beauty and style…

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - FASHION MUST HAVE -

My grand­mother, Dorothea, was so el­e­gant. She didn’t have a lot of dresses or any­thing, but she al­ways looked put to­gether. She’d say, ‘If you look good, you feel good.’ It’s a tenet I’ve car­ried all my life – whether I am do­ing movies or am at home with the kids.

One of the first things that drew me to the brand [El­iz­a­beth Ar­den] was its rich her­itage and his­tory of sup­port­ing women. As one of the first fe­male en­trepreneurs, El­iz­a­beth Ar­den paved the way for women like me. It’s an hon­our to carry on her legacy and be part of such an iconic company that is com­mit­ted to serv­ing women. I’m ex­cited to work as a cre­ative part­ner along­side the El­iz­a­beth Ar­den team, pro­duc­ing con­tent that cel­e­brates the spirit of the brand, high­light­ing fe­male-cen­tric sto­ries that il­lus­trate women’s true-life ex­pe­ri­ences that unite us all.

Why do [South­ern women] wear makeup ev­ery­where? It’s just how we were raised. My grand­mother would al­ways say things like ‘spruce the goose’ and ‘put your face on’.
