Andie MacDowell's Secrets to Everlasting Beauty
December 5, 2005

The always-stunning Andie MacDowell knows a thing or two about dressing in high style. She's the face of L'Oreal, and Andie met up with "Extra" at Bloomingdale's in New York to help us find the perfect holiday looks.

For MacDowell, the holiday season is all about basic black and putting together three great looks from one sexy beaded top. "I think it's fabulous because it's very simple," she said.

Andie says happy holidays in classic velvet pants, a long coat and a pair of killer heels. "All one line, simple color always makes you look thinner," she explained.

To heat up those cold winter nights, the 47-year-old actress prefers a soft, flowing skirt and shawl. "This is also a great holiday outfit, a great date outfit too," MacDowell insisted. "Because you got your legs going on."

But Andie told us, "I feel sexiest in a pair of jeans." And she wears them with a sexy pair of boots and a cropped jacket for a look that is perfect for any festive occasion. "It's really nice when you can put it with a dressier, sparkly top," she showed us.

Now on to the question we're all wondering: how does this ageless beauty stay looking so spectacular? "I exercise like crazy," MacDowell told us. "I run, I go to the gym, I lift weights. I do yoga, ride horses, I ride bikes. I do a little bit of everything."

Her other beauty secrets include L'Oreal's Revitalift skin cream and Endless Kissable ShineWear Lip Color.

So take Andie's lead and get into the swing of the holiday season!
