Honey on face! Getting "French Aggressive!"
Our sport’s pillar of beauty, grace, and poise, Ms. Stephanie Gilmore, graces the Grey Lady’s pages today, in a Style feature titled, bluntly, “The Look of a Champion Surfer.”
Steph is her bright and shiny self, and takes the time to discuss the finer points of her “beauty regimen.”
Most of it is pretty useless to a 31-year-old man in possession of the face and body he deserves. But what a thrill, hearing of Steph’s delicious sunburn remedy:
“If I ever get a sunburn, I’ll put honey on my face,” she says. Honey! Nature’s true nectar!
“It’s healing. You can leave it on for five to 10 minutes, and you think it’s super sticky, but it washes right off. It’s a beautiful little trick of mine.”
There’s a joke in there re: “it’s super sticky, but it washes right off…” but I’m not the man to tell it. But I will say this: what a shame it is that no worthy man has risen to the occasion and offered to help her get that sticky honey off her sun-smooched face!
Steph says that, at night, she’s been “going a little more “French aggressive” as of late — a little cat-eye, a little Givenchy mascara, a little Chanel Rouge. She channels Elle Macpherson, “that dewy bronzed beach babe look” a la Gigi Hadid.
She touches on her diet’s more sinful indulgence — a signature orange and almond cake involving something called a Thermomomix — as well as how she likes to “keep it fresh.”
“There’s nothing better than a beautiful piece of fish with a yummy salad,” she says.
Oh, Steph! You can be the beautiful piece of fish in our yummy salad any day, darling.
