ECO ANGEL: Jenna Dewan




JENNA DEWAN Dancing into a New Dawn 

ECO ANGEL 


Actress, Dancer, TV Host and Mother Jenna Dewan is our featured Eco Angel for December 2018. We first featured Jenna on the cover of our August 2012 issue. 6 years later Jenna is back front and centre - stronger, sassier, newly single and stepping up and into the spotlight.

This year has been a difficult one for Jenna Dewan - the Step Up actress announced her separation with husband and co-star Channing Tatum back in April. With fans heartbroken to hear the news that their favourite Hollywood couple taking some time apart, Jenna's personal life was thrust into the spotlight like never before. 

Jenna: "It's challenging to go through a big change and have the whole world have an opinion about it." 

Jenna and Channing first met in 2006 when they auditioned for the dance flick Step Up. Their steamy chemistry was not just on-screen, the couple started dating after filming wrapped and quickly became the cutest and quite possibly Hollywood's most good looking couple since Brad and Jennifer. 

They married in 2009 and four years later their daughter Everly Tatum was born on May 31, 2013.

As the couple move forward as single parents, their #1 priority is co-parenting 5 year old daughter Everly. 

Jenna: "It's been a journey, and it's been transformation of myself - my needs and wants as a woman. I think everyone wants to hold on to what's in front of them, nut when you open your mind, saying, 'I want what's best for myself and my daughter,' you have to be okay with however that looks."

As they say, when one door closes another one opens. Jenna's next opportunity was a guest starring role on the FOX tv show The Resident. Jenna joined the cast early this year and debuted as sharp and sophisticated medical rep Julian Booth when the show returned for Season 2 in October. 

Jenna's triumphant return to TV was welcomed by fans. After her successful recurring role as Lucy Lane on Supergirl (Season 1) and two cancelled tv shows Witches of East End and The Playboy Club - fans were eager to see Jenna on their tv screens again. 

Her courageous and confident character Julian caused quite a stir featuring in 7 episodes of The Resident this year, including an onscreen love affair with Doctor Devon Pravesh played by actor Manish Dayal.

This year also saw Jenna return to the stage as host of the popular NBC series World of Dance along with three expert judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and NE-YO. World of Dance is a reality tv show, where dancers representing all styles of dance compete for a $1 million grand prize. 

Despite the success of the show, and after 2 years hosting, Jenna announced in October that she will not be returning for World of Dance Season 3 as host.  

Jenna: "To my World of Dance lovers! I will not be returning for to the show as host for season 3. But I won't be able to stay away for long, and plan to return to mentor contestants as much as possible. It has been an absolute thrill to be part of this incredible, groundbreaking show from the very beginning, and I am forever grateful to my NBC family, JLO, Derek Hough, NEYO and everyone involved in this journey. We are changing dance world and giving opportunities to dancers in ways I've only dreamed of! Much love to everyone." 


Summer is heating up, with a sexy new collection of dance essentials. After 2 years as the face of Danskin apparel, Jenna Dewan is stepping up her role from brand ambassador to fashion designer with the launch of her first capsule collection; Jenna Dewan x Danskin

Jenna: "I created this collection to move with women in everything they do." 

Jenna's new Danskin capsule collection features cropped tees, leggings, sports bras, hoodies, sweat pants and key pieces for dancers including leotards, bodysuits and a unitard - Jenna's favourite piece from the collection.

Jenna: "I love a one piece. It's comfortable, easy to layer, sexy and hugs all the right places. This [Unitard] is my favourite of all the collection." 

Jenna brings her edgy sense of style, her decades of experience as a dancer and her love of pilates to create a collection that mixes street style with modern dance classics.  

Jenna: "I'm really into the dance/athletic/athleisure look that can translate from day to night feel. Street style that is also appropriate for dance class or gym. 

Jenna Dewan x Danskin collection is available at Danskin.com

As a self confessed Hippie, Jenna loves crystals for healing, eating a vegan diet, using clean and cruelty free beauty products and essential oils to improve her health and well being. 

As a fan of Young Living for many years, Jenna announced earlier this month that she's teaming up with Young Living to as their Savvy Minerals partner for 2019. Savvy Minerals by Young Living is a new mineral based makeup brand featuring quality cosmetics for the eco-conscious woman. 

Jenna: "I'm partnering with Young Living to represent the Savvy Minerals beauty Collection in 2o19. I have always been a fan of Young Living because it offers the highest quality and purest essential oils and essential oils based products, which is important for me and my focus on living a healthy clean lifestyle. Together with you I'm looking for a bright year ahead."

2019 is a bright year for the company, as Young Living celebrates their 25th anniversary. So it was the perfect time to recruit Jenna Dewan as the face of their new cosmetic line, Savvy Minerals. 

Jenna: "Happy Silver Anniversary. I'm thrilled to partner with Young Living Essential Oils in such a milestone year for the company. This is an important year to reflect back on the hereditary and history of Young Living and it's roots as a family farm and it's also a time to look forward at the innovation and vision that the company has as it leads the essential oils industry in a future of wellness. Happy 25 Young Living. You are looking better than ever."

Jenna: "I'm very excited because I clearly love beauty and makeup products. It was also very important for me to find a brand that is ethical, doesn't test on animals and that is free of chemicals. I feel good about wearing [the products] because they are healthy for my skin and body." 

As a busy working mom, Jenna prefers a quick 10 minute makeup routine, and trusts Savvy Minerals clean and simple products because she says "there's nothing worse than being overdone." 

Jenna: "The products are really good. The foundations are great colours and the lip glosses I legitimately wear every day. They are just really good shades. I've tried other natural products and lines that I didn't feel got the right look I was going for. With Savvy, the colouring is right and the quality is right."

With a new direction and drive to success Jenna is pursuing new projects and this year she  launched of her own production company Everhart Productions, named after her daughter Everly. 

She also wrapped two new films; The Wedding Year a new romantic comedy co-starring Sarah Hyland and 'Berlin I Love You' which Jenna filmed earlier this year in Germany. 

Jenna: "There are so many fun projects and lots of irons in the fire. I'm lit up at the moment - there are so many wonderful opportunities. In this day and age, and knowing the nature and climate of the entertainment business, I believe that if you want to do something, you've got to make it [happen] yourself." 

Up next for Jenna is the new Netflix TV series Mix Tape. Jenna has signed on to star in this musical drama and will film the pilot, for a release in 2019.

This year was a challenging one, but through it all Jenna remained strong and resilient. 

Jenna: "People are like, 'How do you get through this?' I didn't run away from my feelings. I let myself cry I let myself grieve. This is one of those situations where I will see the light. The dawn is coming." 

And Jenna hasn't given up on love, just yet. 

Jenna: "I do believe in love still, but I also believe it begins with really digging deep and learning how to love yourself. And then I think you sort of transmute that out to attract the right partner. I think people who are meant to be sort of find each other." 


Jenna Dewan | Jeff Lipsky 

With her new found freedom, coming into her own and experiencing so much personal growth, Jenna is ready to take on a new year. 

Jenna: "I feel I've been on a wave of growth. It does look different; it's a new normal, and I really think we'll get used to that."  

Life looks alot different for Jenna in 2019 - with a new Netflix series, a new beauty brand partnership, a new clothing line and a new beau; Jenna is dancing into a new dawn.

FIT GIRL: Jessica Biel



GIAM X JESSICA BIEL 

Actress, Mother and Fit Girl Jessica Biel has partnered with Gaiam, as their new brand ambassador and this year she launches her own yoga clothing line; the first GAIAM X JESSICA BIEL capsule collection. 

Jessica: "Fitness and well-being have been part of my life forever. I grew up outdoors playing soccer, and I was a gymnast, so this is who I really am." 



Jessica first partnered with Gaiam in September 2017 as their official brand ambassador. 

Jessica: "I've been in love with yoga for years but my love affair with Gaiam is just beginning... We teamed up and I can't wait to share our first signature collection with you." 



Karen Murray, CEO of Sequential Brands Group (Gaiam's parent company) explains how Jessica was their top pick to represent the brand. 

Karen: "As soon as we started thinking about who would be the best ambassador for us, Jessica was at the top of our list. She's about as authentic as they come; she practices yoga every other day and she's a wife, mother, actress and activist. She really wants to put her mark on the brand; this is more than a one-season blip." 




Gaiam was founded 25 years ago in Jessica's home town of Boulder, Colorado and is committed to bringing "yoga, fitness and wellness" to everyone. 

Jessica: "It's the kind of company you can depend on for strong, affordable products, where you think, 'Oh, I know this company and it feels personable to me." 




With her new capsule collection, Jessica wants to share the joy of Yoga with others, so she co-designed key pieces that are versatile enough to wear everyday with her goal to create clothing that doesn't explicitly read as workout wear.

Jessica: "I started getting into yoga about 10 years ago through a close friend who was an instructor. At first I felt like, 'I can't do all those crazy poses,' and I still can't, but I'm not competing with anyone. I want to demystify yoga and bring it out to more women and men in the community, where it doesn't have to be intimidating." 




Jessica's 2018 signature capsule collection of Gaiam yoga and activewear features capris, leggings, bodysuits, tops and jackets that takes inspiration from the runways. Biel brings her sense of style and years of experience with red carpet fashion to this collection. 

Jessica: "We want to bring an elegance to athleisure and elevate it so that when you see the pieces, it looks familiar to what you see on the runways and you can think about wearing it out to dinner or to pick up your kids at school."

ECO ANGEL: LeAnn Rimes


LEANN RIMES Soul Of EverLe 

ECO ANGEL

Singer Songwriter LeAnn Rimes celebrates the spirit of Christmas and the soul of EverLe this month as our featured Eco Angel for November 2018. 

True Blue. 
Born in Mississippi in 1982, Margaret LeAnn Rimes became the youngest country star when her cover of the Bill Mack classic Blue became the hit song of the summer. She was only 13 years old, the youngest country star since Tammy Tucker in 1972, LeAnn's breakthrough into country music was her debut album titled Blue released in 1996. Blue reach #1 on the Top Country Album charts and LeAnn received acclaim for her Patsy Cline style vocals. The album included the hits Blue, Unchained Melody, One Way Ticket and The Light In Your Eyes. 



14 year old LeAnn became the youngest person to win a Grammy when she accepted Best New Artist and Best Country Vocal Performance for Blue at the 1997 Grammy Awards. 

Rimes followed the success of Blue with a string of country albums including You Light Up My Life (1997) Sittin' On Top of the World (1998) LeAnn Rimes (1999) Twisted Angel (2002) This Woman (2005) Whatever We Wanna (2006) and Family (2007). 


LeAnn Rimes 2005

You will remember some of her most memorable songs from the movie Coyote Ugly where LeAnn featured on the movie's soundtrack and made a cameo in the film singing Can't Fight The Moonlight written by Diane Warren along with 3 other songs. 

LeAnn was no stranger to movie theme songs having sung the 1997 classic How Do I Live only 3 years prior. Most recently LeAnn made a cameo in the film Logan Lucky to sing America The Beautiful. 

During her career LeAnn's main influence was Patsy Cline. As a singer songwriter she also attributed Barbara Streisand, Reba McEntire and Winona Judd among her many musical influences. 


Lady & Gentlemen.
In 2011 after spending time on the road performing with Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn and Keith Urban LeAnn released her 10th studio album Lady & Gentlemen. The album featured covers of classic country songs original sung by men. LeAnn added her signature raspy voice giving each song her own feminine twist. 

2 years later LeAnn released Spitfire, her 11th studio album which included 13 brand new songs for fans. With 8 tracks co-written by Rimes, Spitfire is bold and edgy. The album includes Gasoline & Matches, a duet with Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas and features an electric guitar solo from English rock legend Jeff Beck. 

LeAnn: "Rob and I have been trying to work together for 10 years. We reached out to him and he said yes without even hearing the song. When he got there, he said "I thought it was going to be a ballad!" But he loved the song." 




The edgy lyrics were inspired by the scandalised love affair with actor Eddie Cibrian and the divorce from her first husband Dean Sheremet. LeAnn's personal struggles with Eddie's ex Brandi Glanville have been the topic of many gossip magazines, and in many ways this album Spitfire is a deep confessional and quite possibly the album of her career. 

LeAnn: "This album is at no one else's expense but mine. I didn't go out and lash out at anyone, or put names in any songs. I think you could have read any story and absolutely hated me. I mean, I hated me half the time, because I read some of the stories, and I was like, wow, am I that horrible? And I knew I wasn't, but at the same time, it can kind of seep into your head and you start believing stuff." 

LovE is LovE. 
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian met on the set of their 2009 Lifetime TV movie Northern Lights. At the time Rimes was married to back up dancer Dean Sheremet and Eddie was married to mischievous Real Housewives Brandi Glanville. Despite their marital status there was no denying LeAnn and Eddie's steamy on screen chemistry. 




Following the movie's release Rimes filed for divorce in September 2009. 

LeAnn: "I take responsibility for everything I've done. I hate that people got hurt, but I don't regret the outcome." 

The following year LeAnn and Eddie got engaged on Christmas Eve and wed the year after on April 22, 2011 in an intimate ceremony in California. LeAnn wore a handmade pearl encrusted Reem Acra gown and sparkling jewellery. 


LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian


LeAnn: "I'm at such an incredible place in my life. My dad and my mom and I have never had as good as relationship as we do now. I've been through all the hard stuff. I hope I've been through enough of it to last me for a while." 

Fast forward to 2018 and the couple have been married for 7 years. Their love is stronger than ever and most importantly their commitment to family is their main priority. LeAnn loves her new role as step mom to Eddie's two sons Mason and Jake. 


LeAnn & Eddie celebrating their 7th Wedding Anniversary

LeAnn: "I grew up in a family where my parents divorced when I was 14. I would't trade it for the world. I know my mom and dad weren't meant to be together other than to have me (laughs) and I'm totally cool with that. The kids are our main priority, and we have a full house to love and I have a great relationship with them." 


Long Live LovE. 
LeAnn's latest album Remnants is her most authentic album to date. 

LeAnn: "Hopefully, there comes a time in all of our lives where we stop resisting and start allowing ourselves to live a more authentic life. Remnants are the pieces of ourselves we want to keep. Allowing one's self to fall apart as gracefully as possible and then picking up the most authentic pieces or remnants of ourselves and moving forward."

Soul Of EverLe. 
Moving forward to the future LeAnn wants to connect with her fans in a more intimate and authentic way than ever before. 

In May 2017 LeAnn launched her blog; Soul Of EverLe. Curated by Rimes, Soul of EverLe is a collection of LeAnn's most private thoughts and feelings with stunning photographs to awaken and heal through connection, community, joy and lovE. Soul of EverLe reflects your light back to you. 


LeAnn Rimes | Soul of EverLe


LeAnn: "I've learned, if you wait until it's perfect, you'll be waiting forever. Just begin. Well, we have begun, and this is just the beginning of "Soul of EverLe." Thank you all for joining in the evolution and helping create a village of LovE." 

This year LeAnn returned to her musical roots to rediscover some of her most popular songs. She recorded 5 new versions of her classic hits including Blue, Can't Fight The Moonlight, One Way Ticket, How Do I Live and Borrowed for a special EP devoted to her fans titled Re-Imagined

LeAnn: "This new version of "How Do I Live" feels like an intimate prayer. Over 20 years of singing it and my heart breaks now more than ever. There is a new level of vulnerability that comes through every word, every note. A faithful dance between spirit and song." 



LeAnn Rimes | Soul of EverLe


It's Christmas, Eve. 
This holiday season LeAnn returns to her acting with a new TV movie on the Hallmark channel. Rimes stars as Eve Morgan in the christmas movie, It's Christmas, Eve. LeAnn wrote 3 original songs for the film which she stars in and also serves an executive producer. 


It's Christmas, Eve | Hallmark Channel


LeAnn: "My film which I executive produced called It's Christmas, Eve. I wrote 3 songs for the film, 3 original songs, there's a soundtrack out, acted in the film, so it was great to build a project from the ground up. It's just such a special time of year. To be able to contribute to the joy, the tears and the laughter and like all the feelings that come along with Christmas and the holiday is just a beautiful thing. It really is a gift to have you now a movie that I'm proud of, and music that I'm proud of, and being able to collaborate with Hallmark on this." 

Christmas, in particular Christmas Eve holds a very special place in LeAnn's heart. Eddie proposed to her on Christmas Eve. 

LeAnn: "My husband proposed on Christmas Eve so, there you go, it's Christmas Eve."  

It's Christmas, Eve premieres November 10 on Hallmark Channel. 





You and Me and Christmas. 
This Christmas, LeAnn takes her holiday album Today is Christmas on the road with her You and Me and Christmas Tour across America. Performing all her holiday classics for fans from November 30th. 

LeAnn: "I love singing "White Christmas", I think that's always such a beautiful classic. One of my favourite songs, that always make me feel so happy and it's instantly Christmas whenever I hear it is "Holly Jolly Christmas"."

LeAnn loves touring especially around this time of year. 

LeAnn: "I think it's a wonderful way to connect with other people. People seem really open around this time of year, a lot more open than they are normally." 




With 22 years in the music industry as a singer, songwriter and performer LeAnn Rimes has been on a musical journey full of emotions, self discover and triumph. LeAnn pours her heart and soul into everything she does. By trusting her instincts, expressing her creativity, using her voice, following her heart and connecting with her mind, body and soul, LeAnn Rimes Cibrian found LovE, purpose, passion and life is anything but blue

You got the dream. Start with your dream. Start with your vision."
