On Wednesday, May 12th I had the pleasure of interviewing Entertainment Reporter, Dayna Devon on skin care, celebrating milestone birthday's and discussing how 40 is the new 30 and 30 is the new 20!

Candace Rose: You look fantastic, do you have any tips for keeping a youthful appearance?

Dayna Devon: "I started seeing some really kind of deep lines right from the corner of my nose to the tip of my mouth. As we get older we lose facial volume which is one of the reasons we start looking older, and so I got Juvederm in that crease. It's funny because when I did it, I did the one side first and then I was looking in the mirror before I did the other side and it had done such a good job of replacing that facial volume and it was this smooth, natural look and I was just so excited, it was just immediate gratification, you know it's like shopping. It's like you get something right then. I was so excited about it that I was literally telling everybody about it. The irony is you don't have to tell anybody if you don't want to because nobody could tell that you did it. It was just so exciting to me that, I know you're probably like me and have a ton of creams and all these different things that you buy, but it was one of the only things that really, really worked just like it said it did."

Candace Rose: Is it painful?

Dayna Devon: "Here's the thing, the regular Juvederm can be painful when you get it. I've used a topical anesthetic before so it wasn't as painful but it can be painful. Now they have Juvederm XC which has Lidocaine  in it, it's the same Juvederm formulation (but it has Lidocaine in it.) The anesthetic kicks it in like seconds, it's so much better. All the people that always wanted to get Juvederm but were a little bit worried about the pain, it makes it such a more comfortable experience than before."

Candace Rose: Can it be done in one office visit?

Dayna Devon: YES! You can got in and have a consultation, you can mostly like get it right then and by the way, I highly encourage that you go to a a doctor, have a conversation, have a consultation, tell him what your concerns are. Juvederm is not for everybody, but I certainly love it. It certainly worked for me, but do definitely go to a really good doctor and have that conversation with him.

Candace Rose:  What about say for fine lines, crows feet, age spots? Can it fill "stuff" like that in?

Dayna Devon: It's mainly for the nasal labial fold, those deep lines. I didn't even realize how much the mid-face area is even involved in the aging process. It's funny, now I'm obsessed with that, like every person I see I look at those lines but that's where the aging happened on me, and that's why this was so effective.

Candace Rose: How much does it cost?

Dayna Devon: That's a really good question, it's going to depend. On average for the first time it's between $600 and $800 for a treatment, but here's the thing, it lasts for a full year, so if you look at how much it would be divided by 12, it's actually not so bad and it really does last a whole year. I did this in March and I won't have to go go back until next March, it lasts that long. It's kind of one of those great things, you do it and don't have to think about it again for a long time. It's really good for working women like yourself, me, busy moms, that kind of thing.

Candace Rose: What advice do you have for women turning/approaching milestone birthdays? 

Dayna Devon: One thing I did was, as embarrassing as this is, I stood naked in a mirror and asked what needs to happen here and the answer was a lot, but especially in the buttocks area. I just decided to take an honest look at myself. I didn't want 40 to be be as good as it gets, I really wanted to grow from here and be better as I got older. I hate exercising, I decided I had to do it and not just minimal exercise, I'm talking about vigorous challenging exercise about 4 to 5 hours a week. I decided I had to really be good about sunscreen, I haven't been in the past and I'm really good about it with my kids. I even on top of that wear a hat. That's one of the primary reasons for aging. I use Retin-A a lot at night and I make sure I get sleep. I know sometimes that's not the sexiest tip but it really works for me and I really try to up the levels of vegetables and fruits in my diet. I wanted to not only live longer, I want to live better and I want to increase the quality. So far those are really working for me.

Candace Rose: What SPF do you recommend?

Dayna Devon: "Many women think that their sunscreen is in their makeup and that's not necessarily true. Some maybe, but for the most part, you probably need a separate sunscreen that has UVA and UVB protection. I would say a 30 or above, now they have up to SPF 100, but I use the highest number I can get. I try to get a 50. I have Melanoma that runs in my family, I have to be particularly careful, but you know sunscreen is so important. I was the same was as everyone, I was really young, they'll have a cure for wrinkles when I get older. I have a lot of sun damage I wish I hadn't done and nobody could tell me when I was that young. I hope somebody out there listens because it could absolutely make a difference in your skin as you get older."

Candace Rose: How do you feel lifestyle and skincare play a role in ones age and appearance?

Dayna Devon: "Oh so much! I mean so much! It's funny because I have an entire huge vanity full of creams, potions and all that kind of stuff and very few of them I think honestly work. I don't think a lot of them work. I have found that Retin-A and Renova (a gentler version) are a very important part of my routine and that's why I love Juvederm, because it really, really works like it says it does. It's one of the few things to me in this world that actually says what it says it's going to do. You can actually see it go in, see the difference, to me it actually delivers.

Candace Rose: My Readers and I would love to hear what's going on in your busy career!

Dayna Devon: What I'm doing right now is, I've been traveling the country with Juvederm for this campaign we've teamed up and also for the first time I'm actually kind of a full-time mom which is great and I'm training for a triathlon and I'm working on a book proposal and I'm working on some different tv opportunities. Oprah Winfrey's leaving, Tyra's leaving, there's a whole bunch of areas that are opening in the television world. Oprah's starting her own network, so there's a whole lot of new opportunities out there that I'm hoping that one will be right for me.

My Favorite Oscar Gowns ’10

My absolute favorite gown of the night was actress, Demi Moore's Atelier Versace strapless silk organza (gown). I love how glamorous and put together she looked, and I believe she's wearing (don't quote me on this) Chanel Particuliere nail colour which is projected to be as popular as Chanel's Jade polish.

Cameron Diaz looks beautiful as well in this stunning Oscar De La Renta gown "with champagne tulle, metallic ribbon and gold paillate embroidery from the Fashion House's Fall 2010 Collection."

The gorgeous Mariska Hargitay (who I commend for not trying to look like everyone else in Hollywood) looks stunning in this navy colored Vera Wang gown.

Snooki’s Taken Over Fashion Week!


    Well, her favorite diet cookies that is. From Times Square in the heart of NYC to the tents at Bryant Park in honor of Fashion week, models, civilians and guidos alike were encouraged to show off their love handles for a cookie. Not just any cookie, but Snooki's (of MTV's Jersey Shore) favorite which helped her shed pounds!

Celebrity Interview: Celebrity Stylist Phillip Bloch Shares the Top Trends, his Favorite Tips & Fabulous Red Carpet Contest!

"As a stylist, I always want my client to look like themselves, but even better".- Phillip Bloch

    This past week I had the wonderful opportunity of interviewing World Acclaimed celebrity stylist to the Stars, Phillip Bloch, to go over trends we'll be seeing on the red Carpet at The 61st Emmys this coming Sunday, September 20th, and to announce his fab Red Carpet contest with Star Magazine and Maidenform Flexee's for the chance to meet him, be made over, and walk the red carpet in LA!

    "The people with Flexee's Fat Free Dressings got together with Star Magazine and myself and we put this whole package together because I wanted people to have the full Hollywood Experience!" Phillip Bloch

    When asked about trends we'll be seeing on the Red Carpet, Phillip stated "We're seeing a lot of neon, pop colors. During Fashion week there was a lot of hot pink, citrusy yellow, almost day glow colors. They look great in gowns, but when people try to translate them into everyday wear- I don't want to see anyone looking like a hot mess in hot pink from head to toe- use it as an accessory color, that punch, a blast of color, use it as a great hot pink shoe in patent leather or something. A great pink bag, a yellow bag. I think they are great pop colors when you're wearing all brown, all navy, or all dark green. When you're wearing these deep all fall colors, it's really fun to throw that splash of color in there."

Here are a few of Candi's pink choices- Oh and I might add, please don't wear these together 🙂

If you aren't ready to fully take the pink plunge, a cute hot pink pedicure is always fun. In fact this is the color I'm sporting on my toes at this very second. I bought the color as I think I'll be using it into Winter!


Zoya Polish- Layla- Zoya


    White was seen everywhere at this years Oscars but Phillip doesn't see any one color making that big of an impact on the red carpet. He states "We're definitely seeing a lot of nudes and creams and champagnes. I think that's coming in for Spring 2010. I don't know if it'll actually make it to the red carpet. I think we're going to see a lot of these pops of neon. I think more importantly we're seeing a lot of embellishment. A lot of statement necklaces are going to be very in, big opulent necklaces or a lot of bangles. It's going to be one thing or the other. It's not about over excessive jewelry, it's not about tiny jewelry, but it's about the statement pieces that make an outfit."


I just love this statement necklace by BCBG, it's gorgeous and would add to any outfit.

My personal favorite statement piece-

    I've always been curious to know what a stylist chooses first, the gown or the accessories when styling for a big event. Little did I know that the stylist chooses the shape wear prior to picking either one. The ever-so-sweet Bloch informed me that "You've got to put the shape wear on! We put the Flexees perfect shapewear on for Fat Free Dressing. No lumps, No bumps! It's you but better. I think as a stylist, I always want my client to look like themselves, but even better. You want to keep them smooth. A lot of metallics are very in, asymmetrics are very in, the silvers are very in. I think it's very important to separate the best from the hips, from the waist and keep everything looking flat, and toned. I'm not saying not curvy, because I love a size 10, size 12, curvy girl. I love me Chandra Wilson, Beyonce. I like a curvy girl, but you want no lumps, no bumps!"

    It was interesting to hear who he has styled, and who his favorites are. "I love Beyonce, I just love Beyonce, she's such a class act. She's so sweet. She's so sincere." Phillip went on to say.

   Bloch listed Jessica Simpson as another favorite. "I just love Jessica Simpson, Halle Berry is one of my favorites. Forest Whitaker's wife, Keisha (Nash) is a real "it" girl, fashion girl, she's one of my best, best friends. The big stars that are clients- I'd really like to say Beyonce, Halle, Salma Hayek, Cameron Diaz. I just love too many girls! Lady Gaga's really fun, and she actually wears Flexee's to perform in. For $30, she pus on a Flexee's tank or a Flexees tummy tucker, and she wears it to perform in. Nowadays the technology that we have in fashion makes fashion not only fashionable, but functional. People don't want to spend a lot of money to look good nowadays. Now more than ever all us "recessionistas" want to look good and not spend a lot of money."
