When Zico Coconut Water unveiled it’s new “I am natural” ad campaign, I interviewed spokesmodel Molly Sims about her career from being an actress on TV’s Vegas, to now an HSN jewelry designer. She shared her lifestyle tips, including the benefits of coconut water and must-have beauty picks.
KC: When did you first get involved with Zico?
MS: They found out that I love it. I was drinking it a while ago when I was working out with my trainer Tracy, and my work out was so strenuous it was taking a lot out of me. I lose a lot of salt, and this is the best drink for that. I don’t have to eat a banana if I drink this [coconut water]—it has the same potassium content.

KC: You recently started your own HSN jewelry line, Grayce by Molly Sims. Are you wearing Grayce?
MS: Yes, I am wearing it. And we have the e-commerce site, graycebymollysims.com.
KC: What is your favorite item?
MS: Oh my gosh, I don’t know, probably the mixed metal pieces, but I love the color accents too.

KC: What kind of women do you design for?
MS: Every woman—I think that’s the key to my success. That it is great for my mom, and myself, and it’s all under $250. It’s all really affordable.
KC: You design jewelry, you obviously love accessories. What’s your one must-have accessory?
MS: I am obsessed with my Valentino bag—they remade it. I’m so obsessed. I got it last season, and it’s amazing. I’m having it dyed chocolate brown because I love it, and I cannot give it up.
KC: How do you stay fit?
MS: I love juicing. I am just about to try the Red
Carpet Cleanse in LA. They deliver it every morning. I love olive, spinach, and parsley. I have one every day of my life.

KC: What are the top 3 items in your makeup bag?
MS: I love Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment. I love the Jouer Crème eyeshadow in Chiffon. It comes in Feather as well, it’s really nice, and Cashmere. That whole palette is awesome. Their Luminizing Moisture Tint is also really good. It’s not too orangey, and it comes in an SPF. I love Bobbi Brown Powder Pink Pot for lips and cheeks; it’s a great everyday go-to. I love Chanel lip gloss, too.

KC: What are your best fashion and beauty tips?
MS: Know your body, look in a mirror, have people be honest with you. Simple is always the best and find what works. If your foundation or your base works on you, keep it. And also, ladies, learn to use a primer because you sweat, and if you don’t you are going to shine.
KC: You are a model, actress, and now a spokesmodel. What next?
MS: Trying to get back on TV. I had such an amazing 6 years of acting on Vegas. It just has to be the right thing.
KC: What is your guilty pleasure?
MS: Cake, M&Ms . . . oh, and I love trail mix!
