It's easy to imagine that the life of a young model in New York City is glamorous and fun, but there's a healthy dose of unpredictability that goes along with it. That's exactly what Laura Love is learning, having recently traded her California lifestyle for the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. "My life is anything but typical lately," she said with a laugh. And a lot of the liveliness has to do with Love's latest work as the face of Vera Wang's new fragrance, Be Jeweled ($45-$68). "My favorite part of the experience was working with the team," she said of the beautiful ad campaign. "We shot in California, which was nice for me because I'm from there."

A classically trained ballerina, Love attends class twice a day when she isn't traveling. "It gives me a kind of structure that modeling can't," she says. Her time backstage in the ballet world also gave Love a more practical skill: an above-average grasp on doing her own hair and makeup. Learn Love's beauty tips when you keep reading.
