Martina McBride

MY STYLE SECRETS

THE SINGER SHARES HER FASHION AND BEAUTY MUST-HAVES

OVERALL STYLE “I like things with a little edge. A bit of rock-and-roll toughness but still feminine.”

FASHION RISK SHE’S NERVOUS TO TRY (BUT HOPES TO DO ONE DAY) “Bright colors. I gravitate toward grays and blacks, but the trend this fall is brights, so we’ll see!”

IF SHE COULD RAID ONE CELEBRITY CLOSET, IT’D BE … “Gwen Stefani, but then I’d really have some working out to do!”

SIGNATURE ACCESSORY “Probably bracelets. I wear a lot of them. And shoes! I always get compliments on my shoes.”

FAVORITE OUTFIT “Jeans, my Trunk Ltd. Beatles T-shirt, and Converse Chuck Taylors.”

GROWING UP, I HATED THIS FEATURE; NOW I LOVE IT “My hands. I always thought they were big and didn’t have much character. I wanted them to look like my mother’s. Now they do.”

I FEEL MOST BEAUTIFUL …

“When I’m well rested!” says McBride, whose 11th studio CD, Eleven, is out Oct. 11. “Sleep makes all the difference.”

BEAUTY MUST-HAVE

“Chanel Glossimer in Blizzard. You just feel better when you have a little gloss on!” Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Blizzard ($28.50; chanel.com)

BEAUTY TRICK

“Use a makeup sponge to blend, blend, blend! It really does make a difference.” Beautyblender makeup sponge ($19.95; sephora.com)

HOME DECOR MUST-HAVE

“Candles. My favorite is Cashmere by Linnea’s Lights.” Linnea’s Lights candle ($30; check linneaslights.com for retailers)

MOST FLATTERING JEANS

“I like PRPS styles.” PRPS “Zebra” jean ($300; check prpsgoods.com for retailers)

Martina’s Look for Less

Love the dramatic gold-fringe earrings Martina wore at the ACM Awards this year? The super-long accessories are by Chrissy L and retail for $98, but we found these lookalikes at Shop4Sparkles.com for just $19!
