Allure Cover Star Fergie Reveals the Secret to Her Amazing Skin


Fergie’s sexy, tough-girl style may seem extreme at times, but no matter how long her extensions or how bare her midriff, she doesn’t regret a single moment. By 2004, “I knew I was doing sexy,” she told Allure’s Judy Bachrach. “So I went for it.” In our February issue, Fergie admits to one disaster involving at-home hair color that she’d rather forget and reveals her favorite skin-care products and makeup picks.

Her biggest hair regret: “It might have been in junior high—I wanted to dye my hair dark, so I put a rinse in my hair, and what came out was like a pea green. Awful! And my mom made me go to school with it till I got it professionally done. I had to go to school like Frenchy from Grease.”

The makeup she loves the most: “A nice extended black eyeliner. I would always copy that Marilyn look in the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and sing in the mirror. My grandmother used to look like Marilyn Monroe!”

Her best skin-care trick: “I do M.A.C. foaming face wash because it gets the skin really clean, then Eight Hour Cream by Elizabeth Arden and La Prairie neck cream. And the La Mer eye cream. I tested different neck creams and eye creams on tour with my makeup artist for, like, two months, and these are the ones that work best for me. Controlled testing!”

A typical breakfast: “A shake: kale, romaine, spinach, half a banana, half a pear, half an apple, a little bit of water, and a juiced orange in the Vitamix. It’s changed my life. It’s like a buzz. It gives me a little sugar boost, but it’s all healthy sugar! I did it during my pregnancy. Axl Jack just loves it. We call it Green Goo.”

The beauty treatment she would not want her husband to see: “I mean, he’s walked in on me during my bikini waxing—and I’m like, ‘OK, honey, hi.’ And I’m on all fours…. But he doesn’t just leave; he gets curious!”

Albino Models are ‘Beauty centers of our fashion designers’


For years the modelling industry has been known to portray the “perfect” image of what they believed a person should really look like; tall, slender, tan and flawless. But recently the modelling world has taken a more “abstract” route and designers have been changing their view at a rapid pace, using more eccentric faces to open for their runway shows.

A case in point is designer Ricardo Tisci, who has been known to cast unusual people to represent the line and made waves when he used Lea T, a transgender model, to represent Givenchy in the past – and his latest “face” for the line is no different. This time, Tisci cast an albino man, Stephen Thompson, as the new front for Givenchy.

“Riccardo Tisci, designer for the French fashion house said that he’s often admired the look of albinos and that they’ve been an inspiration for the tones that are recurrent in his designs, he told Women’s Wear Daily,” the NY Daily News reports. Thompson and Tisci have opened a lot of doors for people who look a little “different”. But how many models out there actually have albinism? You’ve got to admit, it’s not something you’ve probably ever thought of.

Albinism is probably one of the most discriminated against syndromes in the world, basically because of people’s lack of knowledge of it. Some cultures in Africa actually believe that albinism is the result of a curse and that it’s contagious. Others believe that albinos can tell the future and that albino body parts are useful talismans in black magic. Now, obviously none of that’s true, but it just shows you the extremities people go to to make up things about something they don’t understand.

In this following lines you will meet some of the most beautifully unusual people you have ever seen (who just happen to lack melanin)…

Refilwe Modiselle is a model and entertainer from Soweto, South Africa and earned her claim to fame as a model for South African designer David Tlale when she became the first woman with albinism to walk a runway in South Africa.

Alyona Subbotina is a fashion model who comes from Kazakhstan and has done very well for herself posing for campaigns like Giorgio Armani, Jean Paul Gaultier, James Macari and Oscar de la Renta and magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire UK, Schön! Magazine and Elle Mexico.

Though she isn’t a household name yet, she is definitely one pretty face to be on the lookout for.
