Molly Sims’ Supermodel Secrets: How to Look Good in Photos

You might think that modeling is all about good genes, but I’m about to let you in on a little secret…

There’s actually quite a science to posing—and after many years in the biz and many magazine covers, I like to think I have it down to a T!

Here are my top 3 tips for looking good in pictures:

1. Keep your chin cocked down ¾ of the way for the most flattering angle for your face.

7 Sites That Need to be on Your Web Radar

We are living in a world of information overload these days so how do you know which websites and newsletters are worth your time? After scouring the e-world, I put together a list of my favorite online destinations that are perfect for fashion and lifestyle junkies.


1. Edition01:
Edition01 is the first online luxury experience designed to spotlight and sell limited edition fashion pieces from leading designers in one of a kind capsule collections. Collaborating with Vera Wang, Zac Posen, Narciso Rodriguez and Thakoon (to name a few), founders Estefania Lacayo and Jessica Wilpon Kamel offer you a unique shopping and lifestyle experience which has already been touted by Vogue, WWD and Marie Claire to name a few. Their minimalistic and inviting web site is blog style making it very easy to shop their collections which are grouped by designers and lifestyle categories (“Travel Boutique”). You can also have a personalized shopping experience by using their “My Edition” feature to track what you want, need and bought and get recommendations for building your perfect wardrobe. I love that Edition01 goes beyond just shopping and gives you behind the scenes fashion intel in their Journal, stocked with insider interviews, celebrity essentials and designer inspirations.

Reporting in from the Kohl’s Rock and Republic Show

Fashion Week is in full swing–there are so many fab events and shows to attend! One of the best so far this season was the Kohl’s Rock and Republic show. I loved so many of the edgy chic styles and was able to catch up with some of the hottest celebs there (Ashlee Simpson told me that she uses La Mer moisturizer every day…no wonder her skin looks so luminous)! Spotted in the front row was Molly Sims sporting the cutest baby bump, hottie Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, Penn Badgley, Ashlee Simpson, Tinsley Mortimer and Kelly Bensimon among others. My favorite looks included a perfect short and fitted LBD, an off the shoulder striped micro mini dress styled with layered necklaces and stacked bangles, the cutest denim shorts paired with wearable tees, cropped jeans in colors and denim and some great downtown looks for men. I also really loved the ruched off the shoulder dress designed in a fresh, light blueish-green color–perfect to rock at a cocktail party. I am so excited that these looks are available right now— no waiting until Fall necessary. What do you think of them? Let me know below!

My Favorite Looks from the Kohl’s Rock & Republic Show at New York Fashion Week

I see so many looks I love during New York Fashion Week but it’s not often that I get the chance to wear any of them right away. That’s why I have to share with you some of my favorite looks from the Kohl’s Rock and Republic show last week… the styles are available in stores now as of today! You can also shop for them online. From casual jeans and tees to edgy rocker chic dresses, this line really had something for everyone. Here are some of my favorite looks:

Edgy Tank I love to wear tank tops year round, especially pairing them with cool cardigan sweaters or cropped jackets. This one is a perfect addition to any rocker wardrobe…the cross and stud embellishments are super chic. It works well with all types of jeans whether colored or denim, skinny or flare!

Colored Jeans Rock & Republic is of course known for a great pair of jeans, but why stick to just denim? I think this bright red is a new wardrobe staple – perfect for the girl who wants to stand out!

Little Striped Dress There were so many edgy and cute pieces in this collection. One of my faves is this mini striped off the shoulder dress. I love the shimmery stripes and it’s a perfect day to night look. Wear with fun tights and boots with a cropped biker jacket to finish off the look.

I loved attending the fashion show and even spotted some celebs like mom-to-be Molly Sims, the very sexy Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, Penn Badgely, Tinsley Mortimer, Ashlee Simpson and Kelly Bensimon. Check out this video featuring some of the celebs as well as looks from the runway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArurB6mmdlY&feature=relmfu

Notorious for their intricate patterns and stand out designs, Primsport is perfect for spicing up a drab workout wardrobe.

Glam Model/Actress Molly Sims Reveals Everything from Beauty Secrets to Guilty Pleasures

By Katrina Caspelich

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!
