It's Wednesday, which means it's time to meet BellaSugar's latest Model of the Week. Today, we're getting up close and personal with 25-year-old Cynthia Kirchner, a 5-foot-8 blond-haired beauty with stunning green-blue eyes.
Born in Hazleton, PA, Kirchner has four brothers, a sister, and a two-pound teacup poodle named — get this! — Bella. She started modeling in 2002, and in her very first week with Nous Models, she'd already booked ads Guess and Abercrombie & Fitch. She has since appeared on the covers of Cosmo and WWD, as well as in music videos for Enrique Iglesias ("Don't Turn Out the Lights") and Justin Timberlake ("Like I Love You").
Kirchner has also done catalog work for almost all major department stores, and her fabulous face has graced advertising campaigns for Express, Nautica, Redken, L'Oreal, Garnier, Target, Christian Lacroix, and Olympus. When she's not modeling she enjoys taking long walks, reading, writing, eating sushi and ice cream, and traveling to Paris and London from her current NYC residence. Cynthia is also pursuing a couple of hush-hush movie projects.
Read what she had to say about fashion on FabSugar, and to learn her beauty secrets and see some of her modeling highlights, including her Garnier Fructis commercial,
BELLASUGAR: What is your secret to beautiful skin and hair?
CYNTHIA KIRCHNER: A healthy diet and a good skincare regime. I eat a protein-rich diet with lots of raw foods like sushi, veggies, and carpaccio. However, I don't neglect carbs...I believe everything in moderation is ideal.
For my skin, I make sure to cleanse, tone, and moisturize daily and exfoliate every two to three days. I like products from France and Switzerland like Sisley and Mavala, but I use Oil of Olay as an alternative. For my hair, I wash it every other day and use protective conditioners from Kerastase.
BELLA: What is the one product that you can't live without?
CK: My eyelash curler.
BELLA: What is your guilty pleasure?
CK: Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream.
BELLA: What are your favorite drugstore products?
BELLA: Happiness is...
CK: When it comes to fashion, true happiness is having the perfect shoes to match any outfit. In my life, happiness is the sunshine after the rain!
