Whether you watch her VH1 show "Full Court Life" or not, chances are you're probably a fan of Lala Anthony. Known for her trendy style and NBA star husband, she's a force to be reckoned with. I had the chance to chat with her about her new partnership with Caress, top three rules for living a fabulous lifestyle and upcoming projects. Congratulations on your partnership with Caress! Why was this a great fit for you?
Like Caress, I’m all about fragrance because it’s an essential part of any look & sets the tone for my day - from how I feel to what I wear. I partnered with Caress as a Fabulista to show women how fragrance can inspire them to live fabulously every day. The new Caress Tempting Whisper Fine Fragrance Elixir Body Wash has such alluring fragrances and has been inspiring me to wear so many hot trends this season … from floral print dresses to bold pink accessories.
Since the campaign revolves around "living like a fabulista," what are your top three guidelines for living a fabulous lifestyle?
My top tips for living like a fabulista this summer are:
1. Rock Flirty and Feminine Fashions
Flirty, feminine looks like lace, floral and peplum are hot for summer. To flaunt this look, wear a flirty white lace dress and cinch at the waist with a pink skinny belt. Complement your feminine look with soft accessories and the alluring, sweet notes of wild peony and red plum from Caress Tempting Whisper Fine Fragrance Elixir Body Wash.
2. Play with Prints
Fashion and style should be playful and nothing is more mesmerizing and fun than a wardrobe with prints to mix-and-match. Try contrasting colors prints and layers or turn it up a notch with metallic and floral patterns. If you are unsure about a look, stay within color families, that way clashing patterns look edgy and avant-garde.
3. Wear Neon
I love that designers are embracing neon this season! There is no better way to be bold than adding a splash of pink or a pop of color into your summer wardrobe to punch up an outfit. These super-brights will help you feel bold and confident – like a true Fabulista.
With these tips, I want to inspire women to step outside of their comfort zone and flaunt their fabulous style confidently. There are more on the Caress FB page.
Between your new book launch and show, Full Court Life, you have a lot to be thankful for. How do you balance it all?
I balance everything going on by making daily lists which help me prioritize. Sometimes you can’t get everything done in one day, so the trick is to prioritize.
What do you hope is next for you? Anything else fun coming up?
“Baggage Claim” is in theaters on September 27th, “Full Court Life” is on every Sunday on Vh1 at 10pm, I just finished filming “Think Like A Man Too” and I have a role alongside of Hill Harper in the independent film, “1982”, which will be hitting film festivals soon.
When you're not working, what's your guiltiest pleasure?
I love to go to the movies, but I also love to sit on the couch and watch movies at home.
