Vivica A. Fox Shares Her Best Beauty Advice

There was plenty of pretty to go around at Fashion Rocks, but Vivica A. Fox had one of my favorite looks of the night. It was retro without being costumey, elegant without pretense, and polished without being piled-on. This is how glamour is done!

Strolling with her buddy, fashion stylist Phillip Bloch, she stopped to chat about her look. "I wanted to do a little throwback to Hollywood," she said. "Phillip did my hair; I usually do the pullback with a bun, like classic Elizabeth Taylor, but he said, 'No, let’s have some fun and do a little Dita Von Teese.'"

To find out how Vivica's skin stays so gorgeous (seriously, it was practically poreless!),


Up close, Vivica's complexion has a healthy glow. Her secret? Steam and exfoliation. "I take steam showers twice a day. I’m very fortunate to have a steam shower at my house," she revealed. "Once a month I get microdermabrasion. I use Dermalogica products, I drink lots of water and I try to keep my spirit happy."

To that end, when asked to share the best beauty advice she's ever received, she said:

To get out of my own way. To be a lady. To embrace the joys of life and to get out of my own way. In our twenties, women are fighting to find out who and what we are. Once you accept yourself and like yourself regardless of past mistakes, and you look forward and not backwards, that’s when you’ll really feel beautiful.

Sage advice — although microdermabrasion certainly doesn't hurt, either.

I agree Baby Girl. She's definitely had nips and tucks plus botox. She looks fake.

She forgot about the botox and other nips, tucks and injections she had over the years. She used to look so much better.

I'm sorry but she can NOT pull of a pinup hair style.

Does anyone else use Dermalogica b/c I agree with Jude C, her skin is great. I also like her advice; it's how I try to do it too.

I'm really not a fan of the hair--it looks too sculpted for my taste--but her makeup's nice, and she does appear to have amazing skin.
