Spotted at L.A. Fashion Week: Michelle Stafford
Michelle Stafford is the Emmy-award winning actress who portrays Phyllis on the soap, The Young & the Restless, and has appeared on many other television shows.
i was fortunate enough to have met Ms. Stafford coming out of the Lauren Conrad show at L.A Fashion Week, and she, along with her goddaughter, Paris, was gracious enough to share with me her thoughts on the show (btw, i was confirmed to see the show, but i unfortunately didn't get in because of an overbooked guest list).
she had many great things to say about Lauren's spring line, siting that it was very youthful and perfect for someone like Paris, who loved the floral prints and hair accessories. they both agreed that it was a beautiful collection and very wearable (stay tuned for pics of the collection!).

a few days later i was given the opportunity to ask Michelle some informal questions about her own personal style, and her beauty must-haves and secrets!
first of all, thank you Michelle for taking the time to answer my questions! would you tell me (and my readers), what trends you are loving most for fall?
Michelle Stafford: the skinny belt.
when it comes to style, how would you describe the "look" you go for on a daily basis?
MS: natural with a touch of sex.
how do you think you and your Y & R character, Phyllis, differ in terms of style? how are you the same?
MS: i actually don't think we differ that much in style, although the real tight fitting stuff isn't always the way i go.
who, or what, are some of your favorite designers/clothing lines?
MS: John Galliano (always), Christian Lacroix and Narciso Rodriguez.
your skin is amazing! what is your skincare routine?
MS: thank you. i wash it three times a day and put on a lot of moisturizer. i also take omega-3 fatty acids-- those are amazing for your skin.
if you could only use three products for the rest of your life, which ones would you choose?
MS: shampoo & conditioner, moisturizer, under eye cream.
do you have any beauty secrets? would you share them with us?
MS: every morning (first thing upon rising) i have 8 ounces of hot water with the juice of half a lemon and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. it does what coffee does but without the caffeine.
thank you Michelle!
