Star Beauty Secrets: Victoria's
Principles of Beauty
She became an instant small

TV icon Victoria Principal has become a real-life
business tycoon, reigning over a $100 million
cosmetics and skincare empire. When we caught

her blood: "There's something about coming
in early in the morning and the smell of a soundstage
and to know that at some point during the day
you're going to soar. You never get over that!"
