Beachwear, casual or glamorous? What's your go-to look when you're on vacation?
It really depends on where I'm going... a mix of beachwear, casual, and glamorous is probably best -- whatever feels most comfortable.

What are your three best fashion tips for holidays?
Bring positive emotions and a healthy body with you. Remember to pack comfortable shoes and fitness clothing, and make sure your luggage is large enough to fit everything!

What accessories do you always take with you on vacation?
The best accessory is your smile! And a camera, so you can document everything: friends, scenery, food... And of course, you can't go without sunglasses, La Perla beachwear and a good hat!

What is your holiday beauty regimen?
I go through my usual routine of cleanser, moisturizer, day/night cream, but I remember to add sun protection if I'm going outside. Always spend some time to find the best spa possible, so you can have a great, relaxing beauty routine for your entire body.

What are your favorite makeup looks for day and night?
When I'm not working I don't use makeup very much, but during the day I like to carry a colorful lipstick just in case. At night, if I'm with friends I like to put on some light makeup that looks refreshing. I would contrast that with a dark red lip color and some mascara. Of course, I don't forget about some color on my nails!

Do you have a particular holiday anecdote or a special souvenir to share?
Every trip has really precious memories for me. I like calming scenes of nature, so the one that sticks out the most is probably a few years ago, when I went to Thailand's Koh Samui Island with my parents and some friends for two weeks. That's when I started recording my "Wen Li" webseries for China as well.

For souvenirs, I always take many photos no matter where I go, and I always buy fridge magnets that are local to the area!
