Linda Rodin likes to keep things simple. It’s the approach she’s taken to fashion and beauty and most other aspects in her life. So when she couldn’t find one product versatile enough for all her skincare needs, she created her own.

The resulting products have garnered nothing short of cultish obsession, international fame and celebrity clientele. A former model and sometimes fashion stylist, Rodin is famous not only for her Olio Lusso potions, but also her fearlessly charming style. She shares some of her secrets to looking elegant…with a twist.

When asked to describe her personal style, Rodin explains that it’s “Simple, slim and clean and basic. In my own eyes, I always look the same. I try to look the best I can, and be elegant and yet age appropriate in my choices. Every woman needs a perfect pair of black pants. Keep it simple but elegant with these Ralph Lauren Black Label skinny pants.”

“I’m never without a good pair of glasses, like these Postcard sunglasses from Prada.” When it comes to bags, Rodin makes sure what she carries is stylish but most importantly, practical. “This gorgeous green bag from Marni‘s Spring collection is large enough to tote around all my products.”

So what can’t a beauty guru live without? “I don’t put much on my face, but this lip balm is an exception,” she says. Rodin’s product line is available at Gee Beauty. And this May fans can look forward to the last addition to the collection, Rodin’s first fragrance, which will be out in time for Mother’s Day.

When it comes to citing her favorite designers, Rodin has high praise for several of the powerhouse females who keep her coming back for more. “Phoebe Philo for Céline really captures what a modern woman wants.” Stella McCartney is also a closet staple.
