Freshly back in the US having just wrapped her new gig as a judge on “Britain’s Next Top Model,” Whitney Port opened up to The Beauty Bean about filming in the UK (“it was really great… but happy to be back”), her love for the Crest 3D White collection, why she keeps spoons in the freezer, and even her soon-to-be sister-in-law.
Whitney Port: On Real Beauty
I think beauty is… in the eye of the beholder.
I feel most beautiful when… I’m natural.
I deal with the pressure for body “perfection” by… doing everything in moderation.
When the media analyzes or criticizes my body, or the bodies of others, I feel… I guess I feel impartial because if they don’t know me, it’s easy to say those kinds of things, but I don’t take it personally. I think the easiest thing to do is do not compare yourself to others, find confidence within and be the best you can be. If you’re doing everything you can to be the best you can be, you need to stop questioning yourself and be happy with yourself.

If I could give young women a piece of advice, it would be…Have the patience to work as hard as you can and not be afraid to work from the bottom up. And find something you’re passionate about because you’ll have to do it everyday for the rest of your life!
The one lesson I try to remind myself of is to… have patience! Sometimes I can get easily overwhelmed by things and want solutions right away so it’s important for me to know it’s a process and journey and I need those steps in order to get to the end goals.
I wish I could… be home more.
My favorite body part of mine is… my legs.
The craziest thing I’ve done for beauty is… I don’t really do that many crazy things… maybe a spray tan!
In the next year I hope to… continue expanding my clothing line internationally and become a better designer by continuing to teach myself through the design process.
If I could only keep 3 items in my closet, they would be… my Burberry leather jacket, my red Givenchy bag and my Rolex watch.
To stay healthy… I surround myself with good people, get lots of sleep and eat lots of fruits and veggies.
Any weird beauty tips you swear by? My eyes are very sensitive so I put spoons in the freezer and then place the frozen spoons on my eyes when they’re irritated or when I’m tired.
Now, really, how do you feel about your brother getting married and your future sister-in-law? She’s really sweet.
