It has been red carpet week in Los Angeles and I have looked terrible. I just could not get it together. I was tired and washed out . I did not recognise my face, the skin looked like cottage cheese and I had dark shadows everywhere. A friend on the internet said to me "you look exhausted" Sun at my age is out of the question, if I don't get skin cancer I will get leathery skin. If I use a spray tan it somehow looks a little fake on my face. I do need a holiday that is true, I hate them but need one. I did two plays back to back, and two exhibitions and moved houses whilst doing the new one up. I love that frantic pace, the adrenaline of working. My girl friend, the make up artist, Tonya Crooks said crisply "Change your make up. I was a little horrified, I have been using Chanel make up for many years and she was suggesting I use La Prairie? I thought at first it was bullshit. She suggested I use the Nars oil free pro prime and then put skin caviar concealer foundation, from La Prairie, on afterwards. Hey presto I looked back to my normal self. All it took was a trip to Saks to feel a million dollars. Check for yourself. My hair I was worried about too, am I too blonde, is it too curly should I give up?. Tanya said "No, why give up when you have just bought the most incredible house and you are happy?" I suppose sometimes I would like to get the slippers out and curl up with my new book and read some of the poetry by Ezra Pound I have just been sent. Angela Kalinowski said she will add some highlights when she comes back on Monday and Gia Sinatra set to work or following her careful instructions which she did beautifully. That with my new Karl Lagerfeld collar I felt as if I was game set and match.
