Welcome to our third first installment of Model of the Week. I've written a five question interview that I have conducted with several models to share with you. The questions are both fun and beauty related and will always stay the same. To see the rest of the Model of the Week posts click here.
Here's a little history about the classically stunning Carolyn Murphy. She was born in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, on August 11th, 1975. She grew up in and about Northwest Florida in a trailer park in Panama City, Florida. She was spotted and discovered at the age of 16 by the owner of Mary Lou's Models Modeling agency and began modeling right away.
Carolyn moved to Milan to model after high school. It was there where she gained her popularity. She bleached her hair blond for a photo shoot and it began to fall out. Many photographers took notice of her brave, boyishly short haircut and she began getting work in high profile magazines.
You may recognize her from her 2005 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover, as the face of Estee Lauder, from her award as VH1/Vogue's "Model of the Year"in 1988, from her many magazine ads, runway shows or from her screen debut in the movie, Liberty Heights.
Carolyn is also the proud mother of a gorgeous seven year old daughter named Dylan Blue. I am pleased to be featuring this stately blond, blue eyed fashion icon whom I have admired for years.

BELLA: What is your secret to beautiful skin and hair?
CM: Sleep, water, exercise and maintenance. For skin, a routine is key. I wash with a foaming cleanser twice a day, I exfoliate once a week and I always use a good moisturizer.
BELLA: What is the one product that you can't live without?
CM: I’m obsessed with Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair! It makes my skin feel like a baby.
BELLA: What is your guilty pleasure?
CM: Dark Chocolate...any kind.
BELLA: What is your favorite drugstore product?
CM: My favorite drugstore product is Egyptian Magic and I carry it with me everywhere. It is made with olive oil and bee pollen so it's great for dry hair, cuticles, lips and even skin rashes my daughter gets from wind.
BELLA: Happiness is...
CM: My daughter, my family, art, writing, sleep and world peace.
