We sat down with Djuna Bel ahead of the event she's hosting with us at goop Lab in Los Angeles to discuss wellness and style, topics she is definitely well-versed in. Model/stylist/true LA woman, Djuna does it all, jetting off to exciting locales, helping her clients find the perfect look, and topping it all off with being a mother. Keep reading for our interview with one of our favorite LA it girls.
Q: Travelling back and forth between LA and NYC is part of your work as a stylist -- what would you say are the main differences between the cities' two workout styles?
A: I think the two cities used to have more of a difference in workout styles -- NYC was all about quick cardio classes and LA was all about the yoga and meditation. Recently, I feel like the two coasts have merged and it's pretty equal. Although, you can't really beat the amount of steps you log in NYC.
Q: How would you style Ernest Leoty pieces for an LA woman's wardrobe?
A: The pieces are so universal -- they're great workout pieces, but look equally chic paired with jeans or trousers.
Q: What does wellness mean to you, and how do you make sure you incorporate it into your daily routine?
A: Wellness means being good to your mind and body. I'm a huge advocate of moderation.
Q: What's your favorite wellness trend at the moment?
A: I love adaptogens. I make myself a sun potion/moon juice tincture in the morning that has macuna, ashwaganda, reishi, and a bunch of other things like collagen to help balance my energy and my mood and keep my skin supple -- fingers crossed!
Join us on June 6th from 6:30 to 8:30PM at goop Lab at Brentwood Country Mart in LA, where Djuna will host our trunk show and styling event. No RSVP necessary. Click here for the address.
