My inbox has been pelted with Met Gala beauty recaps all morning, but this – this! – is the one that really floated my boat: Mama-of-two Cindy Crawford looking like a billion euros.
Please. How old is she? 50, right? Doesn’t she look incroyable? She is still, decades on, seriously hot.
According to the PR whizzes behind Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty line, she tapped makeup artist Jo Baker and hairstylist Ward Stegerhoek for the event, which, unless you were sleeping under rock, know was held last night in New York.
(In case you were wondering, Ward is a god…)
Back to Cindy.
In keeping with the evening’s “Manus x Machina” theme, La Crawford wore a Space Age-y silver frock by Balmain, which was simultaneously covered-up and curve-hugging / sexy as all get-out. The press release describes her look as “polished and radiant,” and I absolutely concur with that assessment.
So what are some of the components – the key pieces, if you will – of this polished and radiant look? Well, a cursory glance tells me about 10 gallons of bronzer were involved. Neutral, rosy lippy. Buckets of black liner, perchance.
Underneath all that, she may or may not have been wearing her new Vitality Oil, which is laced with vitamin C and orchid extracts:
Of course I want to know Cindy’s beauty secrets.
What woman in her right mind wouldn’t?
But I’m even more intrigued by the contents of her clutch.
According to the PR operatives, her stash included:
1. The aforementioned oil
2. Rimmel London lip color
3. Pressed powder
4. Dentyne Pure
5. Several teensy bootleg bottles of her husband Rande Gerber’s Casamigos tequila
Despite the “liquid courage,” I’m guessing Cindy keeps her boozing to a minimum. There’s no way she could stay so hot if she was hitting the sauce on the reg.
Still…the proof is in the proverbial pudding:
