The Au Naturale Beauty Products the Supermodels Can’t Get Enough Of

The days of choosing between all-natural, non-toxic beauty products and luxurious, effective formulas are officially behind us. Over the last few years, dozens of chic, organic skin-care and makeup lines have sprung up around the globe, garnering the attention of more than just the health conscious.  Models, and we’re talking lots of them, are already on board with these all-natural wonders, stocking up on everything from organic concealers and vegan lipsticks, to toxin-free sunscreens and anti-aging serums.  So really, the only dilemma these days is: Where do you start?

Among those brands capturing our attention (not to mention the models’) is Epicuren, which offers cutting edge formulas available in the cleanest and most natural way possible.  Chrissy Teigen is said to be just one of countless A-listers that turns to the brand’s ORAC Age Protect Serum for her daily dose of healthy skin protection.  Both vegan and cruelty free, this groundbreaking formula harnesses a variety of powerful, protecting antioxidants with extremely high ORAC values to fight free radicals, chronic inflammation and dehydration — otherwise known as the three major causes of aging.  Supermodels Karolina Kurkova and Marisa Miller are also said to be fans of the brand’s X-treme Cream Propolis and Active Sport Treat Sunscreens, which include such all-natural ingredients as nourishing Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil, Vitamin E, Green Tea Extract and Hawaiian Kukui Nut Oil.

WATCH: The First Look at Cara Delevingne’s TV Debut in “Timeless”

Aside from a brief appearance in 2012′s Anna Karenina and a short film for Karl Lagerfeld, we’ve yet to really see the true test of Cara Delevingne‘s acting chops.  That is, until now.

Having already conquered the world of modeling, the 21-year-old model is now beefing up her film CV with a leading role in “Playhouse Presents: Timeless,” a made-for-TV film airing on Britain’s Sky Arts network on June 19.

Making her TV debut, Cara plays Chloe, a young woman engaged to a soldier serving in Afghanistan who grows closer to her great grandmother (played by Sylvia Syms) who also lived through a similar situation — being separated from her partner during World War II.  The two women bond over love and loss, and are essentially the catalysts for what we’re sure is going to be a major tearjerker.  For the evidence, just check out the clip below, which shows the supermodel looking decidedly unglamorous as she laments her inability to get in touch with her fiance.  Needless to say, Cara’s got some theatrical talents and more than holds her own against Syms.

From Superheros and Jumpsuits to Models: Stella McCartney’s Garden Party Had It All!

If we know one thing, it’s that a Stella McCartney never fails to be a veritable who’s-who of celebrities and models – and last night’s Spring 2015 presentation was no exception to this rule.  The garden party, held at New York City’s Elizabeth Street Gardens, was filled with celebrities, models, and like any good party – candy, balloons, and a giant chessboard, which made for some amazing Instagram opportunities!

Once again, Stella was joined by an A-list celebrity and fashion crowd, and partied with the likes of Amber Heard, Jourdan Dunn, Liv Tyler, Helena Christensen, and the ultra in-demand Cara Delevingne.

As for the fashions, the models were dressed in head-to-toe superhero prints with chunky colorful flatforms on their feet.  Another crowd favorite of the night was the ever-popular Stella McCartney jumpsuit.  Cara wore a navy silk printed Stella jumpsuit, complete with a plunging neckline and covered with wacky faces.  She paired her look with open toe heel boots, a gold necklace and a metallic clutch.  Jourdan Dunn and Stella herself chose jumpsuits as well – Jourdan in a sheer blue collared jumpsuit cinched at the waist with a metallic clutch and nude pumps, while the designer wore a cobalt blue jumpsuit of her own design with a red and white pattern.

Look of the Week: Hilary Rhoda is Pretty in Pink in J.Mendel

The world may still be reeling from Rihanna’s totally sheer ensemble spotted at the 2014 CFDA Awards on Monday, but if you ask us, she was hardly the only one ‘shining bright’ on the red carpet.  With dozens of models on hand for the occasion, there was certainly no shortage of runway-ready style to swoon over, and yes, swoon we did!  Particularly over this jaw-dropping J.Mendel number spotted on the beautiful Hilary Rhoda.

The all-American beauty looked divine in a floor-length peach lace dress complete with a plunging neckline and a mini train.  The fitted silhouette looked especially flattering on the fit and time model, who enhanced her look with a gold sparkle Jimmy Choo clutch, metallic gold sandals and diamond accessories by Dannijo.  And of course, as the longtime face of Estee Lauder, it comes as no surprise that Hilary’s beauty look was every bit as stunning as her ensemble.  Looking oh-so-elegant in a tousled, side-parted long bob, bold brows and a strong berry mouth, Hilary didn’t just ‘shine bright,’ she stole the show!
