Denise Richards has used the exact same fragrance every day for the past 15 years.

In an interview with New York Magazine’s The Strategist, the actress/TV personality listed an Eau de Parfum by Kai as one of her favourite things.

“It has been my signature scent ever since I sprayed a tester at a beauty counter 15 years ago,” she said. “I get compliments from men and women, who ask me what I’m wearing.”

Kai’s Eau de Parfum retails for $78 (£64) and carries notes of gardenia and other exotic tropical flowers.

Richards added that the perfume “gives a fresh, clean, beautiful smell that reminds me of the very first time I went to Hawaii. I wear it all the time – I use the deodorant, too, and sometimes the body oil. I never get tired of it.”

Elsewhere in the interview, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared another brand-loyalty, revealing that she has had the same blend of coffee, Greenwell Farms’ Kona Coffee Medium Roast, delivered to her home for the last 18 years.

Praising the coffee’s smooth, non-acidic flavour, Richards shared: “My parents owned a coffee bar, and years ago, my mother set up a delivery service for me to get the whole beans.”

Other items the 49-year-old enjoys include Marvis’ Classic Strong Mint Toothpaste, Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, and the Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers. She also bulk buys plain white socks.

“No matter how many pairs I buy, they’re missing half the time. I don’t know if the dryer sucks them up or what,” the mother-of-three mused. “But at least if they’re all the same colour and style, we can always find a match.”

Kim Kardashian is so knowledgeable about cosmetic surgery that she’s become a go-to expert for her famous friends.

The reality TV star loves to spend her free time trawling through the social media accounts of cosmetic and plastic surgeons, as well as researching different procedures, and now has such in-depth knowledge of the topic that she is often asked for her advice by A-list celebrities.

“The Instagram accounts from surgeons are something that I love to go through,” she told New York Magazine. “I love to research every single procedure to know exactly what’s out there. And people call me all the time, like really famous people, out of the blue and are like, ‘I know we don’t know each other, but I’ve heard you’re the expert and I’m looking to do x, y, and z. Who would you recommend?’ And I’ll be like, ‘Actually, I’ve just researched this!'”

The 39-year-old didn’t divulge if she had undergone any treatments herself, although she has been accused of getting a nose job, breast enhancement, and facial fillers over the years. She famously had an X-ray taken of her bottom on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to prove she doesn’t have implants.

However, Kim revealed she often meets with cosmetic doctors to get advice on what to have done when she’s older.

“I’ll meet with doctors and be like, ‘So when I’m 50, do you think my neck is going to, (be) like …? What’s the best way to do it?'” the mother-of-four admitted.

Elsewhere in the interview, Kim shared that she wears a robe “24/7” when she’s at home because she’s always glammed up when she’s outside and has worn the same two or three pairs of pyjamas so much that they have holes in them.

Kim Kardashian ready to scale back on sexy bikini photos

Kim Kardashian has decided it’s time for her to scale back on posting bikini photos online.

The reality TV star, who boasts 152 million followers on Instagram, is known for regularly sharing selfies and sexy snaps of herself on social media.

However, in a new interview with New York Magazine, Kim explained that as a mother-of-four, legal student, and political advocate, her former persona no longer aligns with her current focus.

“I think I’m evolving to where I don’t feel the need to want to keep up,” she said. “Not that I did it to feel like I had to keep up, but I guess I just don’t care as much anymore to want to take tonnes of photos in a thong bikini. I actually just want to lay out. I don’t care to take the time out of my day on vacation like I used to, where I’d pull up to the house and I’d see, ‘This is a setup, this is an Instagram pic. Now, this is a different setup. Oh, this place has so many different setups. This is going to be amazing.’ And now I’m just like, ‘Let’s actually live in real-time and enjoy it. If we happen to get a photo, great.'”

Kim went on to share that her rapper husband Kanye West has had a lot of input in her style evolution, though she also insisted that she ultimately has the final say on all of her ensembles.

“I have kind of had this awakening myself. I realised I could not even scroll through Instagram in front of my kids without full nudity coming up on my feed pretty much all the time. And I definitely contributed to that. I mean, one of my most iconic covers was the Paper magazine winter 2014 one, when I was all oiled up and ripping my dress off,” the 39-year-old commented, before referring to the time she met with U.S. President Donald Trump in May 2018 to try and negotiate the release of grandmother Alice Marie Johnson from prison. “I also did think, like, ‘Okay, I’m here in the White House,’ and then the next day I was posting, like, a crazy bikini selfie. And I was thinking, ‘I hope they don’t see this. I have to go back there next week.'”

Duckie Thot swears cocoa butter is the secret to soft skin

Duckie Thot is a big fan of using cocoa butter and swears it is the key to “glowy” skin.

The Australian model, who is of South Sudanese heritage, has quickly risen up the ranks of the fashion world since launching her career in 2013, having landed work for the likes of Yeezy, Fenty Beauty, Oscar de la Renta, Moschino, and L’Oreal.

Now, Duckie has shared some of her favourite beauty products, and noted Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Body Lotion is at the top of her list.

“After every single shower, I’ll sit there for a good 10 minutes and lather my whole body with cocoa butter,” she said in an interview with New York Magazine’s The Strategist. “It just stays on all day, and your skin looks so glowy. It’s not too thick. Sometimes oil gets on clothes, which is really annoying, but I love the cocoa butter – it just goes on super-nice.”

Duckie went on to explain that she is a big fan of Simple’s Cleansing Facial Wipes for removing make-up, and usually washes her face with Clarins’ Gentle Foaming Cleanser.

“It’s just so thick and creamy, and just a small pump gives you so much product. It’s really gentle on my skin, though I’d say it’s good for all skin types, honestly. It just makes your skin feel really great after you use it. I take it with me everywhere; I use it morning and night,” the 23-year-old said of the brand’s formula.

Elsewhere in the chat, Duckie shared that she can’t get enough of Apple’s AirPods, the Savage x Fenty Padded Eye Mask for when she is travelling, and more unusually, champions fibre supplements from Metamucil.

“I drink the powder with water in the morning; it’s a cleanser, an inside cleanser. I feel like it’s great to have with breakfast, and it just gets you going for the day. It helps me feel more active,” she praised.

Victoria Beckham always has a “little collection” of crystals tucked away in her handbag.

The British designer is one of the busiest names in the fashion business, as she not only runs her eponymous label but also recently unveiled a sportswear collection with Reebok.

However, Victoria has now shared that whenever she feels overwhelmed by any of her daily tasks, she simply reaches for her favourite crystal to hold.

“I always have a crystal in my bag, and my go-to is a white howlite crystal,” she told New York Magazine’s The Strategist. “It’s a calming gemstone that relieves stress, calms the mind, and relaxes the whole body – you touch and hold it. I like to surround myself with positive energy, so I often have a little collection of crystals in my handbag.”

At present, Victoria counts her Jumbo Eva bag design, a large black leather tote with strap, as her preferred handbag. Other items she tends to carry around include her Apple iPhone XR, a Mophie powerstation and Sarah Chapman’s Intense Hydrating Booster.

“Sarah Chapman’s Intense Hydrating Booster is a miracle worker. I use it every day to keep my skin hydrated and radiant, and it especially helps when I haven’t got my eight hours of sleep in. Another thing it’s great for is flights, as it’s really light and not oily at all. I top the serum up continuously whilst flying to combat that air-conditioning,” the 44-year-old gushed of the product.

Additionally, Victoria shared details of her top fragrances and explained that Diptyque’s Green Figuier Scented Candle is often lit in her flagship store on Dover Street in London.

“I love the warmth of fig wood so much that I often have one for my office, too,” she smiled.

Constance Wu is officially joining Jennifer Lopez in upcoming movie Hustlers.

Following the success of her TV show Fresh Off the Boat and role as Rachel Chu in hit romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians, Wu has signed on to star in Lopez’s next project, a real-life revenge drama.

The film will be based on Jessica Pressler’s 2015 New York Magazine article titled The Hustlers at Scores, which centres on a group of exotic dancers living in New York City in the late 2000s who get their revenge on wealthy, drunk, and abusive clients by maxing out their credit cards after they’ve passed out.

Regarding the film, STXInternational’s President of International Sales John Friedberg, commented that he was looking forward to seeing the two star’s performances.

“Jennifer and her team made Second Act an unforgettable experience for STX, so we’re thrilled to be collaborating again,” he said in a statement, according to Deadline. “Jennifer and Constance’s global star power, combined with an extraordinary true story, make this an undeniably hot package for our international partners.”

Studio bosses at STXInternational have added Hustlers to their European Film Market sales slate, with the film set to begin shooting in March (19). No other casting details have yet been announced. Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist screenwriter Lorene Scafaria has adapted the news piece for the movie, which she will also direct.

“The film is an empathetic look at women and men, our gender roles, what we’re valued for, what we’ve been told is our value in every movie, TV show, every corner of culture,” Scafaria previously explained. “Men have been told they’re worth the size of their bank accounts. Women have been told they’re worth the symmetry of their faces, their bodies, their beauty and that’s what this film is based on. The rules of the club are the rules of the world.”

Lopez and her business partner, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, will also serve as co-executive producers for the movie. The 49-year-old is currently promoting romcom Second Act and is next set to appear in TV movie Bye Bye Birdie Live!

Meanwhile, Wu is voicing a character in animated flick Wish Dragon and will soon begin work on the follow-up to Crazy Rich Asians, set to be based on Kevin Kwan’s book China Rich Girlfriend.

Tory Burch is such a fan of leggings that she “practically lives” in them when off-duty.

The designer launched her brand in 2004 and has since gone on to build up a reputation for preppy and Bohemian-inspired pieces.

While Tory always steps out in chic ensembles at presentations and events, she has now shared that she can’t get enough of leggings.

“I wear our chevron leggings almost every time I work out,” she told New York magazine’s The Strategist. “They’re breathable, ultralightweight and always stay dry. On the weekends, I practically live in them.”

Tory went on to share how she always keeps House of Marley Smile Jamaica In-Ear Headphones in her handbag, as well as Matt’s Munchies Organic Fruit Snack to munch on between meetings.

The fashion star also always keeps her beauty kit stocked with Westman Atelier’s Baby Cheeks Blush Stick.

“I tend to take a less-is-more approach to beauty, which is a philosophy I know (make-up artist) Gucci Westman shares. Her new line of cosmetics is incredible. I love how natural this cream blush looks, and it lasts forever,” the 52-year-old said.

Elsewhere in the chat, Tory noted that her favourite book is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

And she loves nothing more than to cosy up in her Loewe wool-blend blanket by the fire and binge on the odd TV show.

“I am not much of a binge-watcher, but I did get hooked on The Handmaid’s Tale,” the designer added.

Dita Von Teese uses power tool to work out knots in her back

International burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese hammers out her back pain with a power tool.

The professional dancer suffered some kinks ahead of her Dita Von Teese and the Copper Coupe tour last year (18) and she was surprised to learn a workshop machine was the answer to her body woes.

“I was going to physical therapy before my tour this (last) summer because I’d had some lower back issues, and my physical therapist pulled out the Theragun, and my life was changed,” she tells New York Magazine. “I got one immediately and even got one engraved. I use it on tour, and everyone passes it around.”

Dita is such a fan of the device, she considers the machine a part of her family, admitting she has even incorporated it into her romance with Disney visual designer Adam Rajcevich.

“It’s a power tool that really gets the knots out. I don’t know about you, but my partner is like, ‘If I have to give you another foot massage …’ But he’s not tired of using the Theragun on me,” she smiles. “It’s not one of those ‘back massagers’ that’s meant for something else either. It’s the real deal percussive therapy.”

In addition to finding the Theragun for back pain, celebrated fashionista Dita, 46, also came across some life-changing wardrobe information last year that has changed her lounge style forever.

“I was in London recently performing at the Palladium, and stayed with a girlfriend, Fiona Leahy, who’s the one I always look to for fashion inspiration,” she recalls. “One night she came out wearing this cashmere onesie, and I liked it so much I took a picture of her wearing it and put it on Instagram. The next thing you know I had one, too.

“With all the things I wear for work – the belts and corsets – nothing feels better than putting on a cashmere onesie at the end of the day. It’s become my most treasured piece of clothing, because it feels like a holiday. I never thought of myself as a onesie kind of gal but it’s pretty chic and streetwear-ready.”

Karlie Kloss swears by using massage stones for glowing skin

Karlie Kloss is a big fan of using massage stones to keep her skin in top condition.

The model is one of the busiest women in the fashion industry, having landed major contracts for brands such as Swarovski, Estee Lauder and Victoria’s Secret.

Karlie’s various gigs mean that she’s always travelling, but she has now shared that she always keeps her beauty kit stocked with one of Georgia Louise’s Lift + Sculpt Butterfly Stones, which retail at $75 (£59).

“I love using my butterfly stone to do a lymphatic drainage massage on my face and neck,” she told New York Magazine’s The Strategist. “It really does help to de-puff the skin and stimulate circulation. Compared to other face massagers, it actually makes a dramatic difference because of the shape of the stone (especially the tips of the wings). It gets into every angle of your face.”

When travelling distances, Karlie likes to keep her complexion hydrated by popping on a face mask. She swears by taking Source Naturals: Melatonin Orange drops when going on long flights too.

“As soon as I get on an overnight flight, I like taking melatonin to help me fall asleep and feel well-rested, because I know the minute I land I’ll be heading straight into a busy day. I prefer liquid melatonin to the tablets – I’m convinced it works faster,” the 26-year-old explained.

In addition, Karlie divulged that she always keeps dark chocolate almond Perfect Bars in her carry-on bag as well as nuts, fruit and almond butter. The blonde beauty, who recently became engaged to her long-time beau Joshua Kushner, also looks to pack her favourite Sleepy Jones pyjama set.

“My mom always told me, ‘When you go to bed in matching pyjamas, you sleep better,’ and I think that’s always stuck with me,” she smiled.

Actor Tituss Burgess is on a diet so often he has forgotten how to eat unhealthy foods.

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star has replaced staple kitchen ingredients with healthy alternatives, like ditching starch-rich traditional spaghetti for Tofu Shirataki Noodles.

“I’m always on a diet, and my Achilles’ heel is pasta,” he explains to New York Magazine’s The Cut column. “I can’t stand zoodles. They don’t taste anything like spaghetti. So I was looking for a replacement and a friend of mine told me about these tofu noodles, and I was like, ‘OK, here we go,’ but they were actually really good.

“They’re made of tofu and are low-carb, and they actually do taste like noodles. They may be a hair chewy, though. You can’t eat them and expect them to be exactly like spaghetti, but for me it works.”

Although he’s adapted well to diet foods over the years, Tituss, who hails from Georgia, refuses to go without certain cookware, citing his cast-iron skillet as a huge part of his culinary heritage.

“My grandmother and mum were the cooks in the family, and there was no kitchen that I walked into among my aunts and uncles that didn’t have a cast-iron skillet,” he recalls. “You can bake in it, you can fry in it, you can saute things in it. And it sort of retains the flavour – that’s not to say you don’t wash it, but it retains the seasoning of the past meals. It’s such a southern thing. And you don’t ever have to throw it out and get a new one.”
