Health and fitness fanatic Kate launched her popular activewear brand Fabletics in 2013, and is now adding to her wellbeing empire with her InBloom powder range.

Revealing news of the business venture to her 12.2 million followers, the 41-year-old shared a photo of herself, taken by her partner Danny Fujikawa, grinning while holding a glass of green drink.

“recipes recipes recipes! Working up some good ones. Can’t wait to share @tobeinbloom with you! #comingsoon,” she wrote.

In another snap, she unveiled the InBloom packaging; a sleek white jar with pink lettering.

“Product Reveal! Can’t wait for you all to meet! @tobeinbloom,” she captioned the photo. “Finally a little peak. (100 per cent) Custom (100 per cent) Natural (100 per cent) PlantSourced (100 per cent) InBloom #comingsoon.”

Elle Macpherson was forced to overhaul her diet after being told by a doctor that she was malnourished.

The Australian supermodel went for a health check-up when she turned 50, complaining of feeling sluggish and run down, and vowed to focus on her wellbeing following the shocking diagnosis.

“When I turned 50, I was feeling tired and run down, sleeping sporadically, experiencing brain fog, my skin was dry, dull and uneven, and generally not feeling or looking well. The practices I had been adhering to over the last 30 years no longer worked for me,” she told fellow model Georgia Fowler during a new interview.

“Frustrated, ready for change and realising I could no longer rely solely on genetics, I started seeing nutritionist Dr. Simone Laubscher, who helped me recognise my body was inflamed, suffering oxidative stress and malnourished, but if given the right environment it could heal itself,” the 56-year-old explained.

The mother-of-two worked with the nutritionist to start her hugely successful WelleCo health brand, which spawned the creation of the cult green powder, Super Elixir, which contains botanical herbs, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and probiotics.

“I feel more emotionally balanced, don’t get sick as often because my immune system is supported, and because I am finally sleeping properly, wake up feeling rested and energised,” she said.

Now, Elle has focused her attention on wellness, rather than fitness, and she said prioritising her self-care has made her life more fulfilling.

“I became interested in what it takes to balance both inner and outer beauty and I began to realise there was much more to wellness than eating good food and exercising,” she shared.

Elle Macpherson: ‘I could survive on three hours’ sleep in my 30s’

Elle Macpherson used to survive on a few hours’ sleep and caffeine in her modelling heyday.

The Australian model, who was famously nicknamed The Body, discussed the bad habits she picked up during the early days of her career, which came back to haunt her when she hit her 50s.

“Genetics can only get you so far,” she told Red magazine. “By the time you reach 50, you realise it’s all about caring for your body and your levels of vitality, so you can do the things you want to do.”

“I’ve tried all sorts of workouts and diets, but now a lot of the things I did in my 30s and 40s no longer work for me,” the 56-year-old continued. “I used to think I was healthy because I could survive on three hours’ sleep and snack on coffee.”

However, Elle didn’t feel like herself while indulging in the bad habits, and a poor diet also affected her mental health.

“In people’s eyes, I suspect I still looked great, but I didn’t feel great. That was demoralising. I didn’t have a sense of vitality. I felt unlike myself, sort of… fragmented,” she shared.

The mother-of-two also revealed that, despite being referred to as The Body, she was often unimpressed by her own physique.

“I don’t think I was very kind to myself when I was younger, especially when it came to appreciating my own uniqueness,” she confessed. “Physically, I was broad shouldered, athletic – not a very fashionable body type in the industry at the time.

“It took me several years before I was able to fully embrace my individuality, be kinder to myself, and then take command of my business and wellness journey. I’m still working on it.”

Elle Macpherson no longer “recognised” her body when she hit the milestone age of 50.

The Australian supermodel continues to be one of the most sought-after names in the business, having landed gigs with the likes of Ralph Lauren and Victoria’s Secret.

But in a new interview, Elle opened up about the changes to her health and wellbeing that occurred around her 50th birthday.

“I’ve always been interested in wellness and trying to better understand my body through different phases of my life,” she told bodyandsoul.com.au. “I wasn’t feeling like myself and I didn’t recognise my body.”

Eventually, Elle decided to consult with naturopathic nutritionist Dr. Simone Laubscher, with the health expert switching up her diet.

And the blonde beauty was so thrilled with the results she set about creating her own wellness company WelleCo, which offers dietary supplements and plant-based protein powders.

“WelleCo was a combination of my own personal wellness journey and vision, and that became the foundation of the business,” the 55-year-old shared. “It wasn’t like I made a calculated decision to be in the wellness business, or to move into it because it made good business sense. It just happened to coincide – the right place, right time.”

Despite Elle’s previous business ventures, including lingerie and beauty collaborations, she insisted founding WelleCo was a risk.

“People are scared to try things because they’re afraid of making mistakes, but I think you can’t learn unless you experience things,” she smiled.

Elle Macpherson has hit back at a troll who accused her of ruining her face with cosmetic procedures.

The supermodel recently posted two photos on Instagram of her with “fellow wellness warrior” Dr. Will Cole, and while most of her followers heaped praise on her in the comments, one user took the opportunity to scold Macpherson for allegedly changing her face.

“Whatever your doing to your face STOP IT (sic)! You don’t look like yourself anymore!” they wrote. “Please stop you were beautiful now not so much. smfh (shaking my f**king head).”

The Australian beauty spotted the comment and hit back by insisting that she hasn’t had anything done to her face.

“The only thing I’m doing is ageing gracefully without interference. Sorry if it doesn’t work for your vision of what you think I should look like. I’m me. Healthy happy and nearly 60. Go figure (shrug emoji),” the 55-year-old replied.

Macpherson has repeatedly stated that she hasn’t undergone plastic surgery in press interviews, however, while talking to Britain’s Daily Telegraph in 2016, she admitted she had tried Botox and collagen injections.

“Yeah, I’ve tried things, but most of the time they don’t work for me,” she said. “It doesn’t work for my face – some people get things done and they look worse. I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat and I don’t want to mess with what there is. At this point, I think it’s best to leave what I have alone.

“Having said that, I do vitamin injections, infusions and I work on my nutrition… I’ve learned that a good smile, good teeth, good hair, good skin, a good mood are worth a thousand injectables and Botox and facials and masks.”

Adut Akech has shared her excitement over winning the Model of the Year award at The Fashion Awards 2019.

The model, who was born in South Sudan and raised in Adelaide, Australia, is quickly building up a reputation as one to watch in the fashion industry, having walked the runway for the likes of Valentino, Givenchy, Prada, and Versace.

At the British Fashion Council’s annual prizegiving on Monday night, Adut was named Model of the Year, beating out other top models Adesuwa Aighewi, Adwoa Aboah, Kaia Gerber, and Winnie Harlow, and she later took to Instagram to celebrate her achievement.

“2019 MODEL OF THE YEAR,” she wrote. “Meet the South Sudanese refugee who comes from nothing, who become (sic) your 2019 Model of The Year last night. I F**KING DID IT!!!”

Adut was presented her prize by British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful and Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli and looked stunning in an emerald green Valentino gown.

During her acceptance speech, she told the audience, “It is important for all of us to remember that someone like me winning this award is a rarity… This is for the young women and men who found representation and validation in my work. I want them to never be afraid of dreaming big like I once did.”

Accordingly, a number of the 19-year-old’s celebrity followers praised her win in the Instagram comments, including Lily Aldridge, Irina Shayk, Elle Macpherson, Karlie Kloss, Shanina Shaik, and Elsa Hosk.

Karen Elson wrote, “You did it. You deserve it! You’re incredible,” Natalia Vodianova gushed, “You worked so hard, baby girl. Congrats,” and Amber Valletta added, “So, so happy for you! Well-deserved beauty.”

While Adut’s mentor Naomi Campbell sweetly commented, “So deserved my baby @adutakech. I Love you.”

Naomi was also feted on the night, taking home the prestigious Fashion Icon accolade.

Elle Macpherson quickly learned to love her “uniqueness” when she first started modelling.

The Australian model, who was nicknamed The Body, has revealed in an interview for the August 2019 issue of Vogue Australia that when she first started her fashion career, she was shy about her long and lean figure.

“I realised early on that I was never going to have the waif-thin fashion body,” she told the publication. “I was six-foot tall, 36 hips, 36 bust and broad shoulders from swimming all my life. I just needed to embrace my uniqueness.”

Elle posed with her two sons, Flynn, 21, and Cy, 16 – who she shares with ex-husband Arpad Busson – for the cover of the magazine, and it marked the first time that she had done a public family photoshoot.

“We’ve been asked for years,” the 55-year-old said. “We kept the children out of the public eye. It was a decision that their dad and I made. We didn’t think it necessary for them to be recognisable in public.”

As the founder of health supplement WelleCo Super Elixir, and her lingerie line Elle Macpherson Intimates, Elle also insisted it was her “willingness to learn” that has made her a successful businesswoman.

“Appreciation for where you’ve been and how far you’ve come is important. That’s something I’ve come to learn in later life, the importance of taking time to remind yourself of what you have achieved,” she shared.

Elsewhere in the interview, Elle discussed her passion for wellness and health, and confessed that she wished she’d been told when she was younger how important it is to “nourish yourself”.

“Not just (with) food, but the people you surround yourself with, the books you read and the love you have, is what determines the quality of your life,” the blonde beauty gushed.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley doesn’t buy into fad diets.

As a model, the 32-year-old works hard to maintain her slim figure and flawless complexion.

But in a new chat with Vogue Australia, Rosie admitted that there’s no shortcuts when it comes to looking good.

“I am a big fan of Elle Macpherson’s WelleCo powder I think that’s great, great for throwing in smoothies or you know just mixing in with some water in the morning,” she told the fashion glossy. “I’m not really one for like fad diets or restricting myself but eating well, drinking lots of fluid and then great make-up products – lots of facials and great make-up!”

When it comes to the products she uses in her beauty routine, the British beauty, who’s mum to son Jack with her fiance Jason Statham, likes to keep it clean.

Mineral make-up is one of her favourite formulas, which is why she chose to team up with bareMinerals.

“One of the reasons I love working with bareMinerals is because it’s clean and that really is great for me, in my personal life,” the blonde beauty explained. “When I’m doing my own make-up I lean more towards non-comedogenic products, that really, really helps me with my skin and stripping out any skin or beauty products that have pore-clogging qualities to them or ingredients – I see a big difference when I do that.”

As for her most important beauty rule, Rosie doesn’t leave the house without SPF on.

“With my children, that’s going to be something that I like lather on them. Being British, anytime the sun comes out you’re going to bake yourself in it,” she laughed. “I just think that’s the one piece of advice I hear time and time again from skin experts is the importance of wearing SPF.”

Claudia Schiffer will support her children if they decide to pursue modelling careers.

The German supermodel rose to fame in the early 1990s alongside Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, and Elle Macpherson, and continues to appear in campaigns, recently landing gigs from the likes of Balmain, Bulgari, Michael Kors, Prada, and Ba&sh.

Claudia and her film director husband Matthew Vaughn are also parents to son Caspar, 16, and daughters Clementine, 14, and eight-year-old Cosima, and while her children are still at school, the blonde beauty would be fine with them entering the fashion business one day.

“I will encourage whatever they want to do, as long as they try their best and work hard at it,” she said in an interview with InStyle.com, before adding that she realises it will also be difficult for her children to step out into the public eye. “Having me as their mum is a double-edged sword when it comes to modelling: It may get them through the door, but they will be under far more scrutiny on the other side.”

In the chat, Claudia went on to explain that she has kept all her clothes from her career in an archive for her daughters to have in the future. And it seems that Clementine has already taken a liking to a number of pieces from her vast collection.

“Last winter, I pulled out some old favourites from the ’90s, such as oversized jackets and large handbags, which ended up looking very much on-trend. I also have some great pieces from the late ’80s, which remind me of how I started my career in Paris. I’ve kept everything, really, for my daughters to wear one day. My 14-year-old has already started with the ’90s section!” the 48-year-old smiled.

Supermodel Elle Macpherson ensures she gets a “solid” seven hours a night beauty sleep to keep herself looking and feeling good.

The 54-year-old Australian fashion icon, who rose to fame during the 1980s, and was known as ‘The Body’ as a result of her record five cover appearances for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, is still in great shape, and credits a good sleep routine for her youthful glow.

“I have learned to be a better sleeper in recent years and am a solid seven-hours-a-night girl now. We need our beauty sleep, it’s a scientific fact,” she wrote in her Get The Gloss column. “I learned from my nutritional doctor Dr Simone Laubscher PhD, that the outer or top layer of our skin comprises tightly-packed dead skin cells which are constantly shed throughout the day. During deep sleep, the skin’s metabolic rate speeds up, which helps with repair.

“Whether it’s damage from factors such as ultraviolet rays or internal toxic overload from too many late nights, we really do need our ‘beauty sleep’.”

As part of her sleep routine, the entrepreneur drinks a cup of her own label WelleCo Sleep Welle Calming Tea and uses her a Sleep Welle Calming Mist to spritz her pillows.

“The lavender scent really adds to the sense of calm I try to create before bed,” she shared. “If I still have trouble calming my mind, I lie on my back, place my feet up the wall, and stretch my arms (like the yoga pose viparita karani – ‘legs up the wall’ pose).

“It has an immediate meditative effect on me. All I need is five minutes like that and I’m calm and ready for sleep.”
