Welcome back to Model of the Week. This week's magnificent model is Malibu native Caroline D'Amore. As a young girl, D'Amore studied ballet and jazz, and she credits dancing with giving her the confidence to start modeling. By age 12, D'Amore had fallen in love with being on stage, but her family wanted to protect her from "the biz" until she was older. At age 17, D'Amore moved to the Big Apple to begin modeling.
You might recognize her from photos in Teen Vogue, Seventeen, Cosmo Girl, Flaunt, Nylon, and Paper. Caroline has also ruled many a catwalk, including those of Stella McCartney, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Agent Provocateur. When she's not modeling, you can find her on hikes, at the beach, or in a DJ booth spinning records. D'Amore also appears in the indie movie “Daydreamer."
Fab has the scoop on D'Amore's style, and I've got her beauty secrets. To read my interview and see a gallery of images, when you read more
BELLA: What is your secret to beautiful skin and hair?
CD: My secret to beautiful hair is that I never dye it, and whenever I'm not working, I try not to use any heated styling tools on it. The more breaks I can give my hair, the better. I also trim the ends frequently, and I only wash it every other day so that natural oils can work their magic.
As far as my secret to great skin, I feel that less if more! I try not to use too many different products, and I religiously wash my face before I go to bed. Falling asleep with makeup on is a major no-no. Anytime that I’ve accidentally gone to bed with out washing my face I’ve almost always woken up with a lovely pimple.
BELLA: What is the one product that you can't live without?
CD: The product that I can't live with out is Bumble and Bumble Sea Spray for my hair. I grew up a beach girl, and I can't give up the beachy waves in my hair.
BELLA: What is your guilty pleasure?
CD: My guilty pleasure is an hour-long bubble bath with bath salts, music, and a trashy magazine. Mmm!
BELLA: What is your favorite drugstore product?
BELLA: Happiness is ...
CD: A new pair of comfy stylish flats. I hate wearing high heels, and I usually only wear them for work. I just love finding high-fashion sexy flats that I can wear during the day or in the evening.
