Elle Brasil did “Brooklyn 1960″ for their November issue, with a red-haired Caroline Trentini. The change looks gorgeous paired with photography by Fabio Bartelt and styling by Susana Barbosa. They did a great job of keeping true to city without playing into cheesy shots. Continue reading
As the daughter of a former Playboy bunny, there is always a pique in my interest regarding the latest and greatest from the glamorous guild.
Last night, Bunnies, tycoons, and celebrity beauties flocked to Mayfair’s Funky Buddha to rub shoulders with newly announced Playmate of the Year, Hope Dworaczyk. Also in attendance were model Kelly Brook and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger (cats versus bunnies!). Mark from The Only Way Is Essex even managed to make it out (and chatted to me about his love for next door’s Nobu), though fellow castmates Amy Childs, Sam Faiers and Harry Derbidge were denied entry (ouch!).
Throughout the night, I was sipping on a ton of Playboy’s new energy drink which is delicious and has no foul acidic aftertaste (looking at you, Red Bull). I even got into a friendly argument with the Oxford Rowing Team defending the sugar free version as the ‘better’ drink. Great night on all accounts!
Charlotte Cave is a London legend. Now 20 years in the industry, she has styled the hair and makeup of everyone from Coldplay to Ellie Goulding (hair lust) and has recently opened up her first salon in Clapham Old Town.
The intimate salon is salmon-coloured with spotlight accents, and a bares no resemblance to the impersonal ‘hair factories’ that London seems to home at every corner. Everything you get here is purely personal with no detail spared. In partnership with Sisley cosmetics, your visit begins with a rave-reviewed face mask and is followed by a mini manicure with a slew of Chanel and OPI nail polishes to choose from. Then comes the make-up. Charlotte knows every tip and trick in the book and her talent is just extraordinary. Don’t miss out.
Yesterday, partnered with her sweet-as-pie stylist Sven, I was curled, teased and coiffed into a modern day Clara Bow for the Playboy party I was attending in the evening. They completely transformed my long, unordered mane with not a snip in sight. I truly believe nothing is impossible at the hands of Charlotte Cave and her terrific team.

Most people who know me off-screen are very aware that my sole goal in life is to become Wonder Woman (any time someone comments on my slight resemblance to Lynda Carter, I become hysterically joyous). This 1941 concept sketch for my DC comic love includes cartoonist Harry G. Peter‘s notes to creator William Moulton Marston, and just sold at auction for $33,350. Over the years, she obviously traded her skirt for star-spangled ‘shorts’ of sorts and got rid of her objectionable “stenographer’s” shoes.
I have previously discussed my love of Nosh Detox, a 3-day (or longer, if you choose) program that was nourishing, delicious, and cleansing. In reality though, most people find it hard to live on such a restricted eating plan. Where do the rest of the foodies-in-need turn? As far as the UK is concerned, I would suggest Go Lower or The Pure Package.
While both programmes are designed with constant integration into your existing lifestyle, they both have intricate and positive differences:
Go Lower is a scheme that can guarantee weight loss results based simply on it’s science. While there is definite caloric restriction, anyone looking to drop some pounds – stones, even – can do so at a very quick rate and with customised, flawless one-to-one nutritionist support. The food is very meat-heavy, as it is the quickest way to get the body into ketosis (aka the natural process that makes your body kick fat to the curb), though there are also some fantastic soups, snacks, and even chocolate. The only negative experience I had while dining on Go Lower was a serious craving for fruit. I am renowned as a complete fruit and vegetable addict, and just a week without eating something super-fresh drove me absolutely bananas. Literally, I bought a ton of bananas.
With The Pure Package, your breakfast will be a variety of either muesli with yoghurt and fruit, or a savoury breakfasts. Lunches are generally salads – good and substantial – and designed to be eaten cold (though some can be heated). Diner is designed to be heated either in the microwave or conventional oven, but your daily menu delivery gives you foolproof directions and the benefits behind the ingredients. With uber-healthy snacks, they also provide many programmes for different lifestyles and goals; detoxes to pregnancy to training support.
Personally, I would choose The Pure Package as my food delivery service because I am a sucker for the freshness and variety of ingredients, and don’t feel the need to drop weight. That said, anyone looking to lose weight from a delivery service needs to chose Go Lower. The results are absolutely incredible, and that extra support offered through your nutritionist and online forums are extremely valuable for those who find it hard to get results on your own. Both absolutely fantastic regimes.
