Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is working miracles for Paula Patton. The actress is everywhere! She covers Harper’s Bazaar Arabia December 2011 issue, and though the pub has definitely seen its fair share of starlets, the staff was mesmerized by Patton’s looks. "She honestly had the best skin and figure we've even seen! She barely needed any make-up either! A natural beauty!" the publication remarked on their Facebook page.
Stylists wasted no time drenching the wife and mother in sequined cocktail dresses, bejeweled shawls and cuff bracelets that emphasized their ‘Arabian Nights” theme.
In her exclusive interview, Patton let fans in on a few of her fashion favorites. She lists Dolce & Gabbana as her top designers of the moment. “I love the femininity of their clothes. They'll go a bit retro but give you enough modern elements that make it new and free. I'm a big fan of Lanvin, and for evening gowns, Carolina Herrera and I love McQueen.”
She admits that maintaining her body is not the easiest thing to do, but she’s determined to stay camera ready. “I'd be lying to say that as an actor it's not a difficult thing--especially as a woman….You're always watching what you're eating. I'm not going to lie."
Her regimen includes a variety of cardio, stretching and resistance. “Sometimes I do yoga, sometimes it's kickboxing, sometimes it's weight training, sometimes it's pilates. Basically still trying to keep the muscles there, so that when the next role comes it won't feel quite as difficult. I don't want to have to go through that first month again.”
