On beauty and style…
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’.
