When you’re going to attend a VERY GLAMOROUS event, you start your day in a VERY GLAMOROUS way. Like... cleaning your whole apartment at 7:30AM because you’re so anxious and excited that you can’t sit down. ?????? I got re-runs of friends on the tele and my cleaning gloves are on! LESSSGOOOOOOOO. ????????????Let this photo serve as my before pic for tonight, one cleaning glove and all. ????I also wanted to post this no-makeup pic to prove a point. It’s no secret that the industry I’m in idolizes fashion and makeup and glam. It comes with the territory, and I’m lucky enough to have an amazing team that helps me with all of that. They’ve helped me learn how to play around with different looks, and how to view fashion as art. But I gotta say, guys — HUMAN BEINGS ARE ALSO ART. We are all pieces of weird, messy, magical art, and that magic comes from WHAT’S INSIDE! The other stuff? It’s just the frosting on top of the cake! I still feel 100% beautiful without any of the glam. And that’s been the most critical thing as I’ve navigated this transition in my life. So I guess what I’m saying is.... YOU DO YOU, have fun with fashion/glam if that’s your thing! And if it’s not, don’t! At the end of the day, I hope you know that your insides are the coolest part of you. SO love yourself, as you are, all sides of you. I’m over here learning to do the same — while I clean. ???? EXCITED TO HAVE YOU ALONG FOR THIS JOURNEY TODAY. I will be posting throughout the day ????????
HAPPY OSCARS DAY!! That’s what most people are celebrating today, but I also consider this day GLAM SQUAD APPRECIATION DAY! I think every actor can agree that we are nothing without our glam teams! SO THANK YOU TO @waymanandmicah (their amazing assistant, Patrick), @storyofmailife (her assistant Mia, who I am excited to meet!) , and @marktownsend1 (and his amazing assistant, @alexhenrichs). Also, I forgot to photograph the amazing @deborahlippmann (and her wonderful assistant) yesterday — they did my nails! ???? YOU GUYS. For real, anyone can look red-carpet ready if they have a team of 8+ people getting them ready! It takes A TON of behind the scenes work, and although I’m enjoying every moment, I’m cognizant of perpetuating an unattainable ideal... That’s why I think it’s important to be transparent about this process! I’m a lucky girl, and I have THE BEST glam team, but y’all know I DO NOT LOOK LIKE A RED CARPET GIRL EVERY DAY. Don’t let my “sometimes” fool you into thinking it’s my “always”. Just sayin’ ???????????? SEE YOU SOONSIES!!! ????
