How does Elle Macpherson look so stunning at 54? The supermodel, wellness entrepreneur and Get The Gloss’s monthly columnist was in town recently and stopped by our sofa for a chat with Editor Victoria Woodhall. Here’s a taster…

Her current favourite beauty buys
Elle’s good friend Sam McKnight looks after her hair styling. She loves his new Cool Girl Hair Barely There Texture Mist, £25.
Elle is all about beauty from the inside and so her Super Elixir vitamin, mineral and probiotic powder and Nourishing Protein powder travel sachets are always in her makeup bag (The Super Elixir Shake and Go travel set £75).

Elle’s beauty hotspots in London
She loves Nichola Joss for facials, Josh Wood for her hair colour and Dr Sebagh on Wimpole St for skin treatments.

Fake tan or suntan?
Elle prefers to cover up with sleeves and a hat in the sun and get her glow from Dr Sebagh’s Self-Tanning Drops £35 20ml.

When there’s only five minutes to get ready…
Her daily dose of The Super Elixir, £62 for 300g, comes first, followed by Soleil Tan De Chanel bronzing makeup base £36 and Glossier Boy Brow £14.

Beach waves or blow dry?
“Definitely beach waves.” She simply puts her freshly washed wet hair up in a top knot and when she takes it down the result is a messy wave.

Bad hair days, she’s had a few…
She laughs at the memory of too much Sun-In Hair Lightener turning her hair orange back in the day when she was photographed for Sports Illustrated.

On tech-free mornings
Elle always takes time on waking to meditate and to have a moment of gratitude. She tells us that one of the most positive changes has been delaying switching on all screens, including her phone, until around 10am.

On quitting sugar
“Sugar is a very addictive substance and difficult to give up,” says Elle, who has managed to ditch the white stuff and refined carbs. She tells how she did it.

On sleep
Elle prioritises her sleep in a way she never used to. These days she loves a pillow mist and sleep tea with valerian, “Nature’s valium”.
Sleep Welle Sleep set £72.
