Linda Rodin On Timeless Beauty And What She Learned From Her Mother

Why This 67-Year-Old Beauty Icon Never Dyed Her Gray Hair

Aside from the bright coral lipstick, Linda Rodin woke up like this.

The 67-year-old fashion stylist, model and face oil guru has a surprisingly simple morning routine, something her cult of style devotees has been trying to emulate with the help of her line of namesake products. Rodin's uniform of oversized sunglasses, tousled chignon and that aforementioned lipstick may sound simple, but paired with her sleek-meets-bohemian clothing, it's just so uniquely her.

Rodin doesn't take all the credit for her look, though. Growing up, she learned the value of signature lipstick because her mother, Beatrice, refused to leave the house without it -- even if she was just driving her kids to school in her nightgown. Recently, Rodin has been inspired by the smell of her late mother. The beauty mogul took it upon herself to recreate it for her latest fragrance, Rodin Bis, which you can find at Barneys.

"My mother smelled like a powder puff; she smelled like lipstick; she smelled like peppermint; she smelled like cigarettes; she smelled like Juicy Fruit gum," Rodin said. "She just smelled so wonderfully 1950s."

Watch the video above to see Rodin talk more about her glamorous mother and reveal what goes into her own highly sought-after regimen.
