Mena Suvari has aged quite gracefully since her American Pie days — and the actress has a whole roster of people and products to thank for that.
Aside from daily doses of H20 and coconut water, Suvari relies on Epicuren products to keep her skin clear. “I started using [them] last year while filming, and fell in love,” she tells The New York Times‘s “Face Time” column. “I’ve been using them ever since.”
Suvari gives props to hairdresser Dave Stanwell for taming her short blonde locks, which required a lot of T.L.C. after years of dying and drying. “He saved my hair,” she insists, adding that shaving it for a role helped, too. “My hair is on the road to recovery.” Now, Suvari says she enjoys “keeping it as healthy as possible, with the least amount of processing” — with a little help from Kérastase and Leonor Greyl products.
When getting red-carpet ready, Suvari relies on edgy looks from designer pal Christian Siriano. “He designs work perfectly for my taste and my body,” she shares. “I adore everything he makes — his fashion sense is right on.” To accessorize, she turns to big names like Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo, Givenchy and Balenciaga — “Just to name a few,” she says.
And while Suvari is currently spending her days working in Los Angeles, it’s New York where she feels most stylish. “I honestly love being in New York,” she reveals. “I feel so unbelievably inspired when I am here. There is such a sense of freedom of expression. It is unlike any place else.”
