Brooke Shields has taken up meditation to help her mental health during the coronavirus lockdown.

The 54-year-old actress opened up about life at home with her family during the coronavirus lockdown and revealed she has recently turned to meditation to help her mental health.

“I have never meditated before in my life. I’m the person who says, ‘I’m too busy to meditate!’ But when the quarantine began, I went through a period of self-indulgence,” Brooke told InStyle magazine.

The Suddenly Susan star confessed she had given up on healthy eating and was instead relaxing with junk food and cocktails.

“I would say to myself, ‘I’m not going to the gym, so I don’t have to work out. I’m just gonna have that quesadilla and that ice cream and cocktails.’ I got in the mindset of going to bed really late and waking up really late,” she added, noting that she was getting more anxious the worse her diet became.

After her family urged her to stop, she began meditation, which has transformed her outlook on life, wellbeing, and exercise.

“So much of what we are experiencing is fear – fear of the unknown – and it’s debilitating. The meditation was maybe 45 minutes long, but it felt like 10,” Brooke shared, before admitting that the practice helped transform her approach to working out as it made her focus on the “spiritual element of exercise.”

“Working out has never been Zen for me. None of the exercising I’ve done in the past has stemmed from me loving it, or from it giving me any peace of mind,” she explained. “Now I’m thankful that I’m even capable of working out.”

Brooke Shields finally feels confident in voicing her opinions on clothes and outfits.

The model/actress has reflected on some of her memorable outfits from her lengthy Hollywood career in a new interview with Vogue.com, and revealed that she’s finally comfortable with having a view on what she wears.

“I think the biggest change in my style from then to now is that I don’t wear something if I don’t love it or feel good in it,” she shared. “It took a while for me to sort of get confident in having an opinion.”

Brooke went on to explain that one of her favourite looks is the navy blue Zac Posen dress she wore to the 2018 Met Gala.

“I was so happy it had pockets, even though I didn’t put anything in the pockets,” the 54-year-old laughed. “And I just felt really regal and beautiful, and appropriate. I wanted it to look really gorgeous, and Zac was just so lovely. I felt like a real star.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Brooke reflected on the outfit she wore to the 1992 premiere of Death Becomes Her, and noted how she had wanted to impress the film’s star, Meryl Streep.

“This was my slick hair, dark, dark red lip, big hoops, lots of crop tops. I was a huge fan of Meryl Streep’s. This was on the off chance I was going to get to meet her. I thought she’d like this outfit,” she smiled.

The Suddenly Susan star also discussed her 2003 Vogue cover, shot by Annie Leibowitz, in which she was heavily pregnant with her daughter Rowan.

However, Brooke confessed that it was “hard” being the second woman to be featured on the cover of a magazine while pregnant, after Demi Moore’s now-iconic cover for Vanity Fair back in 1991.

“It was hard being the second person to be photographed pregnant, because Demi had done it prior, and she had that whole unbelievable tuxedo look, so it was impossible to rival that,” the mother-of-two shared.

Brooke Shields was left stunned when her teenage daughters suggested she get some work done on her famous face.

The 54-year-old actress and model is known for her flawless visage, which has graced the covers of magazines since she was just 12 years old.

Many of her peers have turned to plastic surgery to stay looking young as they get older, yet Brooke admitted during an appearance on Thursday night’s Watch What Happens Live that she’s “afraid” of going under the knife.

But her fear didn’t put her daughters off suggesting that she might want to consider getting a little cosmetic enhancement.

“My girls told me, ‘You really need a little something here,'” Brooke said of daughters Rowan, 16, and Grier, 13, as she gestured at her face. “I’m like, ‘Goddamnit, no, I’m an icon, damn it.'”

One thing Brooke has become famous for over the years is her bold, bushy eyebrows. However, when talking to host Andy Cohen on the show, she admitted she’s never really understood what all the fuss is about.

“You know what’s funny about that is: I never looked at them as much as other people did,” she mused. “It felt dumb to be obsessed with one part of a person.”

Dylan McDermott: ‘Dolly Parton wears seven different perfumes’

Dylan McDermott was amazed by Dolly Parton’s signature scent when they worked together on Steel Magnolias.

During a recent appearance on TV show Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked the actor what he remembers most about his time alongside the country music superstar on the set of the 1989 drama.

In response, Dylan explained that he has never met anyone who uses perfume like Dolly.

“You know, you can’t believe the way Dolly Parton smells,” he smiled. “She mixes like seven different perfumes. So, each and every time you walk into the room, at least I did, I almost fainted.”

Andy then asked if Dolly wears “too much” fragrance, to which the 57-year-old insisted, “No, no, no, no. It smells that good.”

Meanwhile, fellow talk show guest Brooke Shields backed up Dylan’s opinion.

“It’s the perfect combination. It makes your mouth water,” she shared.

While Dolly often speaks about her unconventional skincare regime, it’s not known what fragrances she wears.

Yet, in the past, she was reported to be a fan of Gendarme fragrances and Mary Kay’s Intrigue, though the latter is now discontinued.

And in her 2012 book Dream More: Celebrate the Dreamer in You, Dolly divulged that she used all sorts of alternative products as make-up growing up.

“Until I was a teenager, I used red pokeberries for lipstick and a burnt matchstick for eyeliner. I used honeysuckle for perfume. We were raised in the Pentecostal Church of God and they believed that wearing make-up was sinful. My grandpa Jake, my mama’s dad, was a preacher. So, I had to sneak around and make myself look all pretty but then wash it off before they caught me,” the 73-year-old wrote.

Brooke Shields decided to team with a body contouring treatment company after she discovered a few “stubborn areas” that no amount of diet and exercise could shift.

Last year (18), the 53-year-old flaunted her figure for bikini brand Swimsuits For All, alongside Ashley Graham and shoe designer Angela Simmons.

And while her toned body would make women half her age jealous, Brooke has now confessed she isn’t averse to getting a helping hand when it comes to keeping in shape.

After being announced as the new spokeswoman for Hologic’s body contouring laser treatment SculpSure, Brooke said in a statement: “Through the years, I’ve worked really hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but there’s always a few stubborn areas that I can never quite change. I chose SculpSure treatments because I was looking for a body contouring option that complements the hard work I put in every day, and I want to inspire others to feel beautiful and confident.”

As part of her new role, Brooke stars in SculpSure’s Be strong. Be sexy. Be confident campaign.

Talking to People magazine about growing old in Hollywood, the former model moaned that staying in shape constantly gets harder.

“I work out a lot and I always try to stay really fit and really healthy – it’s a lot of work,” the Suddenly Susan actress sighed. “And the older you get, the harder it is. There are some spots that no matter what I did, no matter how much weight I lost, they were still there. They caused me to be insecure, and for all of the hard work that I was doing, that was really frustrating to me. SculpSure addresses that.”

Brooke Shields only buys designer clothing and accessories when they are on sale.

Over the course of her career as a model and actress, the Suddenly Susan star has collected an enviable wardrobe packed with bespoke outfits and red carpet gowns.

But even though Brooke can probably get her hands on any garment she desires, she now makes a point of only splurging if she is getting a great deal.

“I love wearing leather leggings and a big oversize sweater. I just got a beautiful Celine sweater from a photoshoot and it was on sale,” she said in an interview with Fashionista.com. “Because now I just wait until everything hits sale. Because everything’s just so expensive. It’s crazy.”

Brooke, who has her own fashion line with shopping channel QVC, went on to share that she counts Victoria Beckham as one of her favourite designers and praised the British star’s “chic and comfortable” aesthetic.

And while her closet is full of sophisticated ensembles, the brunette beauty still holds onto a number of pieces from her early days in Hollywood, including the original Calvin Klein jeans she famously wore in an advertisement for the brand in 1980.

“I have a bunch of archive items that I finally am just taking out of my closet and putting in a separate place. I’ve now just started to absolutely get rid of things if it doesn’t have an extreme sentimental value or a piece of fashion history, like Calvin Klein jeans or something that Valentino gave me in the ’80s. If it doesn’t have one of those qualities, I will just sell it,” the 53-year-old commented.

Yet, Brooke emphasised that her daughters Rowan, 15, and Grier, 12, who she shares with husband Chris Henchy, will have first dibs on her wardrobe before she has a clear-out.

Taylor Hill grooms her signature eyebrows with black mascara.

The model is one of the most sought-after names in the fashion business, having walked the runway for the likes of Victoria’s Secret, Versace, Fendi and Chanel.

Taylor has now shared some of top beauty tips in a video for Vogue.com, including the way in which she styles her bold brows.

“I have really dark eyebrows and I never fill them, I just take some of the mascara away (off the spoolie brush) and I’m just gonna use that instead to just make them go up,” she said, going on to demonstrate how she uses the mascara brush to shape her arches. “My eyebrows are out of control half the time, I never pluck them or anything. When I was 12, 13 I used to have a unibrow so I would beg my mom to wax my eyebrows but she would never do it because she was like, ‘You have eyebrows like Brooke Shields.’ She did pluck them for me in the middle just so I wouldn’t have a unibrow.”

Taylor went on to share that she doesn’t pluck underneath her eyebrows as she wants them to “be wild”.

She spoke about her daily skincare regime too, insisting that she uses lots of hydrating products, including a serum, moisturiser and eye cream underneath her cosmetics.

“My skin gets really dry from travel so when I do my make-up I always extra prep – I use three skincare products before I even put make-up on. If you wear make-up over dry skin, it doesn’t last as long,” the 22-year-old commented.

Taylor applies powder all over her face but mostly over the T-zone, and as a Lancome brand ambassador, she uses one of the company’s contouring palettes along with two colours of concealer – one peachier and one with a yellow base – to cover any undereye circles.

And while she uses make-up to even out her complexion, the brunette beauty swears cutting out one food group prior to big events makes a real difference to her skin.

“Before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, I do all kinds of preparations. I usually start about a month in advance and I cut all dairy from my diet, no cheese, no milk – which is really hard because it means no pizza, no macaroni and cheese, none of the things that I really love,” she sighed. “But it’s worth it because I really start to notice a difference in my skin after maybe just two weeks of it.”

Brooke Shields was determined to be the “best version” of herself in her latest swimwear shoot.

The Suddenly Susan actress has had a long association with the fashion industry, appearing on the cover of Vogue magazine at the age of 14 in 1980 and famously fronting advertisements for Calvin Klein jeans.

After stepping away from modelling for a number of years, Brooke was unveiled as one of the new campaign stars for Swimsuits for All in May (18), and has now shared that she took her preparation very seriously in the lead up to the shoot.

“I really prepared. I knew that if I didn’t look my best, I’d be embarrassed and mad at myself. I stopped drinking beer and wine, and I worked out three times a week. I was the best version of myself,” she told Porter magazine, adding jokingly: “I was also hungry.”

In her Swimsuits for All photoshoot, Brooke rocked a red bikini in a variety of locations, including in a car and by a pool.

And in some ways, she still can’t believe that she’s had the opportunity to flaunt her figure, especially as she underwent knee surgery earlier in the year.

“I modelled swimwear when I was 15, and even then, I didn’t think I had a swimsuit body,” the 53-year-old sighed. “I was a cover girl, not a supermodel. I was ‘neck up’ – the face, the eyebrows – and I was always described as ‘athletic’; ‘not rail-thin’; ‘not a runway model’. Those messages, they seep into your consciousness.”

In addition to having roles on TV shows such as Jane the Virgin and Mr. Pickles, Brooke is currently promoting her apparel and accessories line with shopping channel QVC.

Brooke Shields Timeless includes a number of classic pieces, such as high-waisted black trousers, striped T-shirts, skirts, button-up shirts and scarves, with the brunette beauty hoping her clothes appeal to a specific market.

“There is a huge market of women who have money and don’t want to look prepubescent, but don’t want to look like old ladies either,” she shared. “I have years of access and knowledge, and the idea is that I bring my own aesthetic.”

Actress Brooke Shields underwent four decades of soul-searching before finally feeling confident enough to star in her new bikini campaign.

The ageless beauty became a catwalk star at the tender age of 12 in the 1970s, but being touted as beautiful for all these years has actually had a negative affect on her psyche.

“Growing up under such scrutiny led me to feel insecure about my looks,” she tells People. “Feeling disconnected from my own body, it took me years to separate the opinions of others from my own.”

“When I was younger, I never loved being in a swimsuit, because I picked apart the way I looked in them. I would always find a way to cover up,” she adds. “Now, I feel most confident when I’m showing off my body rather than hiding it.”

Mum-of-two Brooke felt empowered flaunting her enviable figure in new ads for body-positive swimwear company Swimsuits For All’s latest Power Suit campaign.

“Over time, I was able to find confidence in myself through my work, my passions, my network of strong female role models and my journey through motherhood,” the Blue Lagoon beauty explains. “At 52 years old, I finally feel comfortable and proud of the all the hard work I’ve put into my body. I can say that I feel confident being in my own skin, showing my body and not hiding it.”

The star poses in a hot red bikini for the glamorous pictures and she insists she didn’t undertake any crazy diets or exercise regimens in preparation for the photoshoot.

“(I) didn’t do anything special,” she says. “It’s all about balance. There’s no set way to be healthy and fit; it really is finding what works for you. I always try to drink a lot of water, get a good night’s sleep and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.”
