Beauty 411: Carolina Castiglioni of Marni

-------

carolina-castiglioniFor those of us whose fashion sensibilities tend toward the bohemian, Marni is the ultimate style pipe dream—the art-teacher-with-a-trust-fund wardrobe we’ve always fantasized about. Birthed in 1994 by the impossibly chic Consuelo Castiglioni as a new branch of the family’s iconic fur company, it has since then built a distinct identity for itself—playful patterns, quirky silhouettes, clever use of fur, futuristic fabrics and textures, bold colors in unexpected combinations—and in turn garnered a rabid following among those women for whom dressing is a both artful and distinctly personal affair. The epitome of that woman is Carolina Castiglioni, Consuelo’s daughter and the brand’s director of special projects. Here, in honor of the house’s Fall 2014 collection, Carolina shares her top beauty (and more) essentials.

THE FAVORITE FRAGRANCE: Marni Il Profumo
“I love the perfume because it isn’t too sweet, but wonderfully spicy and different from any other scent.”

THE AU NATUREL MUSTS
“My favorite moisturizer is Weleda Calendula Cream, and for a body treatment I like to make my own. I create a customized mixture of oils from three parts almond oil, two parts wheat germ oil, and one part jojoba oil. On my nails—which I always just polish with a transparent lacquer—I use Dr. Hauschka Neem Nail Oil Pen; it’s made for both the nails and nail beds.”

See weleda.com and drhauschka.com

THE HAIR HELPERS
“For cuts I go see Enzo at Di Luca; he is very precise and I appreciate that. And my hair care products come from Di Luca as well. I especially love their coconut shampoo, pH emollient conditioner, and vitamin oil for the scalp.”

THE EXERCISE ROUTINE
“My whole family exercises with a personal trainer named Armandino. We all meet during the company lunch break and do aerobic exercises together.”

THE ESSENTIAL MEAL
“My favorite restaurant in Milano is Trattoria Arlati and, of course, I love to order risotto alla Milanese.”
