Words to live! Ava Phillippe she might be a beauty icon in the making, but the 22-year-old model thanks her mom Reese Witherspoon for giving her the most “special” advice on appearances.
“Pretty is just as cute,” Phillippe told E! News’ Pop daily Tuesday 21 December. “As nice as you look on the outside, you are only nice on the inside and how you treat other people. If that’s not beauty advice, I don’t know what it is. “
The model-in-training took these words of wisdom to heart as she entered her first major role in the world of beauty. Phillippe is the face of Pat McGrath‘S Bridgerton campaign – and it’s safe to say that his latest role is a bit of a pinching moment.
“This is a person that I idolize as creative and that I really admire and respect deeply,” said of McGrath, who reached out to her via Instagram DM. “For her to reach out to me, of all people, and to think of me and be so generous in that process was just something else, so special.”
After some planning, the dream team came up with the #DowtownDebutants campaign, in which Phillippe accessorized her punk rock pink hair with a pearl-embellished tiara.
“Accepting this * MAJOR * invitation from the fairy godmother of makeup (and more) was a dream come true,” wrote the model in an Instagram post announcing the launch. “My love for @patmcgrathreal and his team is only growing.”
A week later, Phillippe shared a collage of herself modeling a handful of beauty looks, all with a sepia filter. “This is … MAJOR !!!” captioned the video. McGrath jumped into the comments section in no time. “You are HEAVEN, Ava! Thank you so much for bringing your magic, majesty and greatness! SEND LOVE! ” wrote the head of beauty.
