You may not know her by name yet, but Elisa Sednaoui is changing that. The face of the latest Roberto Cavalli fragrance, this multi-lingual model portrays a sexy siren in the spot above. She's something of a renaissance woman, too; this 24-year-old with Italian, Egyptian and French heritage has used her modelling career to catapult her to other opportunities like acting and directing a music video. And on top of that, hello — she's gorgeous. She's sharing her best (easy-to-follow) beauty advice, so keep reading to see how Ms. Sednaoui stays so gorgeous.
She's known for her luminous skin which is down to her religious use of SK-II skincare, but Cate Blanchett has a few local tricks up her sleeve too. And they're not as pricey either. When asked recently what else she swears by, the Aussie actress replied: "The only other thing I use would be essential oils — there’s an oil that I use called emu oil. In indigenous Australian culture, that’s the first oil they put on a baby because it’s so hydrating. If you’ve got sunburn or you’ve had a scar, or anything — it’s incredible. I’ll use that on the kids, and on the elbows."
