“I grew up in London and came to New York to go to the Lee Strasberg drama school to study method acting. I sort of quickly got into DJing and was really lucky. I started for fun and to bring in some money. Now I guess ninety-nine percent of everything I do is fashion based. I DJ for Burberry and Valentino, Fendi, Missoni, Vogue all that kind of malarkey. I DJ a little bit in the art world too. People in the art world are more fun than people in fashion, they actually dance and get wasted. Aside from DJing I want to start focusing on my acting a bit more. I just got finished this summer with this documentary for MTV.”
I’ve always been a St. Ives kind of girl from the neck down. I’ve rarely given a second thought to what cream I slather on my arms, all the while obsessively carefully perusing various beauty departments to find the facial cleanser that will change my life (at least for the week). It was on one such occasion that I stumbled upon Tata Harper’s revitalizing body oil. The oil’s luxurious texture quickly absorbs into the skin without leaving behind any slick residue, just super soft gams—it’s a non-oily oil. Made with all natural ingredients such as Grapeseed oil and Arnica oil, the line has been receiving rave reviews from the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Harper, a newcomer to the beauty scene, grows most of her ingredients on her 1,200-acre Vermont farm. The line of luxury artisanal oils is produced in small batches with everything from the packaging to the formulations done in house. Just one night with revitalizing body oil was enough to turn me into a convert.
