It’s easy for celebrity moms to look amazing on the red carpet, after hours of primping and pampering and with a staff of stylists who put together their head to toe look. But when it comes to everyday life, even famous moms must come down from their pedestals and get sand in their shoes. Well, at least some of them do! We want to know — is the playground your catwalk or your sandbox?
Do you refuse to leave home without making a fashion statement in a designer outfit with perfect make-up, a flawless hairdo and towering heels? Or, are jeans, sneakers, a ponytail and a fresh face your daily mommy get-up?
Are you a ‘Jen‘ or a ‘Posh?’
Whether the playground is your catwalk or your sandbox, and whether you’re perfectly poised or charmingly disheveled, mommy style runs the gamut from chic to chaotic, and Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Garner are always in the spotlight to model the two extremes.
Although Victoria Beckham always looks picture perfect, she professes, “I’m not a supermodel. I make the best of what I’ve got. I work out to look the best that I can, but I’m no Gisele.” Of her incessant high heel wearing she offers,
Absolutely [heels make my feet] hurt. Absolutely! I’m not going to lie. But no pain, no gain, as they say. I don’t mind. I will suffer. I don’t wear heels every day, but when I’m out, that’s how I feel confident.
On the other hand, when featured in InStyle, Jennifer Garner gives insight into her no fuss appearance. As a teen she said she had, “long, plain straight hair and wore no makeup,” but “[she] was always happy to look like a Garner girl.”
Additionally, when it comes to taming her mane she opts to “put it in a ponytail or a French braid and go.” And since becoming a mother she offers, “these days I wear less makeup than earlier in my career, but I know a lot more about it now.” She adds,
Beauty comes from a life well lived. If you’ve lived well, your smile lines are in the right places, and your frown lines aren’t too bad, what more do you need?
Each celebrity mom is pretty consistent when it comes to stepping out of the house as a glamorous style icon and a down to earth mama, but even Posh has her days of dressing down, as seen here at the movies with her boys. While Jennifer has had her days of dressing up while at the park.
Which celebrity mom does your personal mommy style most resemble?
