Paula Patton, who is now enjoying worldwide fame and admiration for her role in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, is not the kind of girl that looks like she would ever put a foot wrong in the fashion department. Not only is she now associated with her glamorous role in the movie, but the beautiful 36-year-old actress is frequently seen wearing a selection of stunning gowns on the red carpet. Her Hollywood looks also ensure she looks gorgeous in even the most causal of outfits. It was hard to believe, therefore, when Paula described her previous fashion sense as “way too garish to ever leave the house in.”

The star has been seen sporting a number of experimental looks throughout her time in the spotlight, but she manages to pull them off effortlessly. However, Paula explains that this was not always the case in the past. Her love of dressing up and experimenting with clothes started at a very early age and she would often raid her mother’s wardrobe for inspiration. In a recent interview with newspaper, The People, she explained how her mother would encourage her to experiment with clothes. “My mom would go to vintage stores, hand-me-down stores, and bring back these inexpensive adult clothes.”

Vintage style

This is the style that Paula grew up with and is where her fun, vintage and kooky sense of style came from. Luckily Paula has learnt from her experimenting with fashion though, and has emerged looking quite the fashion queen – with her own classy but individual sense of style.

Paula’s love of fashion was not just limited to clothes though. During her interview with The People, she admitted that she used to try some crazy looks with make-up too. She admitted to raiding her mother’s make-up cabinets, and would also spend her own pocket money on tons of different eye shadow creams and lipsticks. However, she confesses that the make-up she used to put on herself was not suitable for wearing on trips outside the house.

“And it was fun to use make-up – but the make-up I’d do [my mom] would never let me leave the house with,” she said. “It was way too garish for ten years old!”

Prefers the natural look

Before you all rush to find the best cable providers to watch Paula’s beauty on screen, here are her secrets to a healthy glow. These days, Paula is more likely to be spotted wearing more natural make-up looks. She told The People how she found it very important to feel fresh, especially when on long photo shoots and filming sessions. This means that she doesn’t like to plaster her face with cosmetics, but likes to always be wearing something to make her appear fresh faced.
“I put a little on every day, regardless of if I’m going to be on camera or not. It makes me feel like I’m ready to face the day,” Paula revealed.

She also admitted that her hectic lifestyle – combining being an A list film star with being a mother to her 20 month old son Julian – means that she often feels she looks tired. “Having a little one in the house means you’re always tired, so making yourself look less tired is a good thing,” she declared.

Paula reveals the secret to her flawless and effortless chic look is a little subtle lip colour or cheek colour. Natural colours are best for lips, she says; “a berry colour, or even a soft nude.” Cheek colour is key to looking fresh, healthy and awake, Paula advises. “It makes such a big difference on your face, and lets your eyes come through.”

Laughter key to beauty

However, the real secret to Paula’s radiant beauty appears to be something more natural. Her top tip for always looking her best is put down to one simple thing – laughter. Laughing, she says, is paramount to achieving real beauty. “I think it affects the way you look overall,” she said. “I don’t know how many people are getting ten hours of sleep a night, but you find someplace within and let that [beauty] emanate outward.”

When asked about eating habits, Paula says she is no crazy dieter. A comforting thing for any of us to her, Paula likes junk food “like everybody else.”

“But you have to drink a lot of water, have your greens,” she advises. It’s nice to know you can be beautiful and human!

You may already be aware that Paula Patton is reported to have been cast in the role of antagonist Witch Boom in the upcoming sequel, Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2. However, this movie has certainly been a long time coming – here’s a brief overview of the production story so far.

The original Who Framed Roger Rabbit was actually released back in 1988, and combined live action and animation. Of course, you might suspect that Paula Patton might be used to voice a reboot of the character of Jessica Rabbit, the bewitching supper club singer, who was often seen wearing dazzling dresses and the type of diamond rings at, as well as plenty of other glamorous attire.

However. This is not the role in which she is believed to have been cast, and instead Patton is set to star as Witch Boom.

The original movie was a huge success, and received an overwhelmingly positive critical reception, prompting plans for a sequel soon afterwards. The movie which then went into production was actually a prequel titled Toon Platoon, which told the story of Roger Rabbit’s early years. Steven Spielberg was attached to direct but dropped out, and a re-write of the script was commissioned in 1997. Alan Menken also wrote a collection of songs for the movie, whilst Eric Goldberg came on board as the director of animation.

Test footage for this movie was filmed during 1998, and this was when the project came to a halt. The mix of CGI, traditional animation and live-action did not please Disney. The mix of visual techniques was no longer considered impressive, and to convert all the animated characters to CGI would have cost the studio in excess of $100 million.

The production was cancelled until 2007, when producer and director Frank Marshall revealed that he was still open to the idea. The writers if the original movie, Jeffrey Price & Peter S. Seaman, were then called in to put together a new script, which many of the cartoon sequences being put together digitally. In 2010, the movie’s original associate producer, Don Hahn, confirmed the sequel, with Patton being cast shortly afterwards.
