BEAUTY CONFESSIONS: Elle Macpherson dishes on her summer secrets!

06 August 2010

You might have noticed that Grazia Daily is a BIG fan of Britain's Next Top Model (check out our reviews here). And over in Camp Beauty, the latest series has sparked never-ending debates about how Elle “The Body” Macpherson has maintained her stunning looks. Doesn't she look so bloomin' marvellous? Especially considering she's forty-seven (!) and appears to spend much of her time soaking up the sun beachside... So you can imagine our delight when we read in an interview with People magazine that the supermodel uses the natural elements to her advantage. Yep, forget expensive styling aids because Elle embraces the tousled and texturised waves which natural seawater gives her hair.  And if you thought that the straw cowboy hat she's often sporting was just a styling aid then think again. “It's actually to protect my hair," she revealed. "I collect them along my travels, so I might find one in a thrift shop in Costa Rica. It’s that simple. ” Most importantly, Elle avoids exposing her skin to the sun at all costs and swears by Neutrogena and, Grazia favourite, invisible zinc sun cream, plus a good spray tan and compact bronzer for the ultimate golden glow. Oh, if only it was so easy for the rest of us...Sigh.
