It's easy to imagine that the life of a young model in New York City is glamorous and fun, but there's a healthy dose of unpredictability that goes along with it. That's exactly what Laura Love is learning, having recently traded her California lifestyle for the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. "My life is anything but typical lately," she said with a laugh. And a lot of the liveliness has to do with Love's latest work as the face of Vera Wang's new fragrance, Be Jeweled ($45-$68). "My favorite part of the experience was working with the team," she said of the beautiful ad campaign. "We shot in California, which was nice for me because I'm from there."
One of the things that keeps Love focused during the unpredictable days is a rigorous ballet practice schedule. A classically trained ballerina, Love attends class twice a day when she isn't traveling. "It gives me a kind of structure that modeling can't," she says. Her time backstage in the ballet world also gave Love a more practical skill: an above-average grasp on doing her own hair and makeup. Learn Love's beauty tips when you keep reading.
Chrissy Teigen isn't like the other models you might have heard about. First of all, she loves fried chicken and rarely washes her face. But the fact that she doesn't fit the typical model bill is one of our favorite things about her, especially her knack for hilarious commentary on Twitter. And no one can deny that whatever she's doing yields beautiful results. "Less really is more. I feel uncomfortable if I go too far outside the box," she told us in an interview. "So do what makes you feel beautiful and it all works out," she says.

Jennifer Aniston may have some of the most envied hair in Hollywood, but the actress herself once had a hair crush of her own. "I've been that person who brought in a picture to a salon. Mine was Valerie Bertinelli from One Day at a Time," she says. "She had that full Farrah Fawcett hair. I didn't come out with that, not even close." As the spokeswoman for Living Proof, Jennifer recently talked to us about her best hair moments (not the "Rachel"), the biggest styling mistake she ever made, and the women in Hollywood who inspire her beauty-wise. Plus, her longtime stylist reveals what's next for her famous mane. Read it all and more after the jump.
It seemed only appropriate that we ask The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev her secret to healthy skin — and looking totally refreshed — at an early-morning event for Origins' latest product, the GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer ($27). The brunette starlet just finished filming the fourth season of her hit CW series, and made a quick pit stop in NYC before officially embarking on her Summer adventures. Read on for what she revealed about her skin care routine, the weirdest beauty treatment she's tried (recently), and what she can't leave the house without.
1. On her skin care routine:
Nina spends much of her days on the Vampire Diaries set in full hair and makeup, so it makes sense that she takes her skin care routine very seriously. "Even when it looks like I'm not wearing much makeup, I totally am. So, as soon as I'm done on set — I don't even wait until I get home — I'll use a makeup wipe, wash my face, and then use a hot towel. I use it to let my skin breathe, let the pores open up, and then I put tons of moisturizer on."
2. On her mom's beauty advice:
Mother knows best, right? "My mom told me once that if you put an egg in your hair, it will make it supershiny." In fact, Nina's mom is onto something — our favorite DIY hair recipe masks serve as further proof.
