Jessica Stam

What is your view on plastic surgery?

I don’t judge people who have it, but it’s definitely not for me.

What makes you feel glamorous?   

Having a blow-dry always makes me feel great and lots of Chanel Le Crayon Khôl black eyeliner. 

Your make-up bag staples?

I make sure I always have Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser, Maybelline New York Watershine lip gloss, Diorshow Iconic mascara, which goes on easily and doesn’t clump, and a Mason Pearson hairbrush. I also love Dior’s Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm – it works with the colour chemistry of your lips, so it looks different on everyone who uses it.

Michelle Pfeiffer
Rag & Bone

Michelle Pfeiffer is Jessica's beauty icon.  Rag & Bone is her favourite jeans label. 'They always fit me perfectly'

What is your favourite shop?

Opening Ceremony in New York ( It stocks a brilliantly eclectic mix of up-and-coming designers.

The best beauty treatment you’ve ever had?  

An oxygen facial. It’s a high-pressure blast of oxygen to your face which isn’t very relaxing, but the results are immediate!

Who is on your beauty speed dial?

Facialists Dangene McKay-Bailey in New York and Michelle Peck in Los Angeles. Michelle is Madonna’s facialist and travels with her, but luckily for me she does visit other clients when she has the time.

Make-up Staples: Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser; Watershine lip gloss

What’s the one beauty product you always recommend to your friends and family?

Aquaphor Healing Ointment by Eucerin ( It’s great for dry or
irritated skin.

How do you stay in shape?

Running outdoors. When I’m at home I run in Central Park, and when I’m away working I love to just take off for a run. Do you have a tip for body confidence?
It comes from within. 

Do you have a tip for body confidence?

Tea or coffee?
