All right, style tribe members: The show has begun. With fashion month officially under way and no rest in sight until early March, the time for prep work to get your head and body in gear has passed. But there are a few expert tips that should help make facing each day a little easier. Just ask Salma Hayek. “I’m never without my black Saint Laurent blazer, a good pair of black jeans, or Gucci walking boots with small high heels, which are essential for traveling,” says the front-row regular who plans to be very present at Christopher Kane and Gucci this season. Also important to Hayek’s jet-set lifestyle? Juicing. After becoming addicted to Juice Generation, the actress/mother/director cofounded Cooler Cleanse in 2008, a juicing company that delivers bottled juices to your home in fresh, chilled packs. “I do my [juice] cleanse for a day or two, sometimes even three days, depending on the level of the damage I have done,” Hayek jokes, alluding to her hectic schedule that includes constant back-and-forth between film and fashion sets. “Cleansing is like a meditation. It makes me stop, focus, and think about what I’m putting into my body,” she adds. As meditative focus becomes harder and harder to attain over the next few weeks, Hayek shares the recipe for her essential green juice, right here, right now. “It’s a great way to start your day, and is full of vitamins—plus it’s great for your skin,” she says. Street-style superstardom, here we come.
Essential Green Juice
Handful of spinach
3 stalks of celery
Small handful of parsley
3 leaves of green kale
2 Bartlett pears, seeded
1/4 lemon, peeled
1/2 cucumber, peeled
Bunch up the spinach, parsley, and kale and push through juicer with the celery and pear. Follow with the cucumber and lemon. Scrape off the foam and serve over ice. For variation, add dandelion greens or watercress.
Finnish design giant Marimekko and Australian apothecary brand Aesop have teamed up on a new skincare line dedicated to Finnish sauna culture. The two-piece range that launches in April will also boast one of Marimekko’s signature prints—as if it needed any help in the way of desirability. [WWD]
More details are emerging about Gwyneth Paltrow’s highly anticipated second cookbook, “It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy, Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great.” Set for release on April 2, the tome reportedly comprises a collection of 185 “restorative” dishes of the sugar-free, non-dairy, vegetarian, wheat-free, and non-alcoholic variety that are based on a restrictive “elimination diet” that Paltrow claims helped her lose weight and feel more energetic. Mmmm. [NYDN]

“For special occasions, practice your makeup one day before so you are not stressed.” So says Salma Hayek (and so we shall abide). [Glamour]
Salma Hayek Pinault took a page out of the Fall trend book earlier this month when she cut herself a set of brow-grazing fringe. But the Here Comes the Boom star has been plenty willing to slick her bangs back or to the side, as though they didn’t exist at all, affording her a certain versatility with the style. This weekend, at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles, however, Mrs. François-Henri Pinault opted to go full force with her forehead accoutrement to balance out the towering updo she sported with her black, one-shoulder gown. Which look do you like better?
Liv Tyler: actress, beauty spokesperson—singer? The rock progeny and Givenchy Irresistible face will reportedly lend her pipes to an original song for her next installment of fragrance ads that’s being called “an electrifying meeting between the world of rock and the universe of perfume.” [Contact Music]
Shakira, the long-haired, Latin American singing sensation, has chopped off her signature strands in favor of an angled bob. That should make for some less impactful head-banging at her next live show; luckily, those hips still don’t lie. [People]
Beyoncé may be heavily pregnant, but that hasn’t stopped the pop superstar from maintaining her manicure. Mrs. Jay-Z stepped out in the pouring rain last night in New York to get a set of pointed, metallic blue gels at Sakura in the East Village. [Huff Po]

On a recent Thursday afternoon, we had the pleasure of having lunch with Salma Hayek to talk Nuance, her new skin, hair, and makeup range for CVS. Hayek, who for the record has an impeccable—and Botox-free—complexion (“don’t think I have not been tempted, but I have done nothing,” she insists), is incredibly passionate about the range, which is rolling out to the drugstore chain this month. “I didn’t do a lot of market research,” she said of the 100-piece line. “This is just what I have found that works,” including tepezcohuite, a tree bark native to southern Mexico and Brazil that regenerates red blood cells and acts as a seriously potent antiaging agent. The extract was a favorite of her grandmother, a cosmetologist who frequently shared her DIY beauty secrets with Salma. What we found most interesting about Hayek’s musings on gloss (“I’m not much of a lip glosser),” tips (“the most important thing you can do is wash your face at night”), and equal-opportunity age defying (“it shouldn’t be a luxury; it should be a right”) was the fact that the self-proclaimed beauty junkie doesn’t wash her face with soap in the morning. The fact that soaps can be stripping and drying, two things that can inadvertently age your skin, isn’t news—which is presumably why the Cleansing Water movement is gaining steam stateside. Part makeup remover, part toner, these no-rinse hydrating fluids are popular in Europe and are a great way to refresh your skin in the morning without being abrasive. They also happen to be a favorite with backstage regulars. “They’re moisturizing,” makeup artist James Kaliardos said yesterday at Diane von Furstenberg (more on that in
a bit). Kaliardos prepped model’s complexions with Klorane’s Soothing Makeup Remover
with Cornflower. “Avene makes a good one, too,” he said—as does Bioderma. Its Solution Micellaire Créaline TS H20 starts showing up once the collections move to Milan and Paris, as it’s only available across the pond. You’ll have a few more stateside options soon, though. “I’ve got something coming out,” promises Hayek, who recommends an at-home remedy in the meantime: Mix one part rose or lavender essential oil with one part soy powder and two parts water. Shake and apply to a cotton pad; store in the refrigerator.
