A stunning new photoshoot and interview by Eva Mendes with Liv has been released in which she talks otherwise about politics, The Leftovers and her very own beauty routine. Photos can be found in the gallery and the interview can be read below!
By year’s end, America may have a female presidential candidate in Hillary Clinton, and actress Liv Tyler is an unabashed supporter of this kind of progress. Tyler embraced the role of unofficial campaign poster girl for VIOLET GREY’s July cover story when she slipped on this cheeky t-shirt in support of Hillary, in support of women. Politics and beliefs aside, Tyler champions fellow women— whether they reside in the White House or Hollywood— and manages to assuage any controversy with her genuinely kind heart. Photographed in upstate New York on an afternoon by a quiet lake, Tyler traded her all-black Manhattan wardrobe for a pair of her “lover’s” vintage Levi’s, all the while projecting the serene aura and charm that has captivated her fans since Empire Records.
The easygoing attitude on set may have been due, in part, to Tyler’s relationship with makeup artist Genevieve Herr, who has been responsible for Liv’s makeup since Tyler first appeared in Hollywood. (Tyler affectionately refers to her work as the “Genevieve special,” the kind of self-esteem-boosting artistry no one can match.) Or it could be that Liv will always just be Liv, the free-spirited girl in the convertible first seen alongside Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith’s Crazy music video. It’s her giggly, hands-in-the-air attitude that first entranced fellow actress and friend, Eva Mendes, who at the time of the video’s release was just another Liv Tyler fan.
In order to promote her current TV-show “The Leftovers” Liv did quite some photoshoots and interviews in the past few months. Be sure to view the lovely outtakes and scans in our gallery!
Trying to catch up on all the latest events Liv attended in 2014, I updated the gallery with all the recent appearances.
Liv was spotted filming new scenes for the TV-series “The Leftovers” on February 20. More photos will be updated this weekend as I’ll also catch up on all the missing photos.
EDIT: the gallery has been updated with the missing on set photos!
If there was a celeb award for moving through life (and down the red carpet) with grace and ease, Liv Tyler would win. Model, actress, mom, street-style pro, and hostess with the mostess, she literally co-wrote (with her grandmother) the manual for modern manners. It was no surprise, then, when she teamed up with One Kings Lane for an awesome guest-editor sale. Reflecting her self-described eclectic style and passion for vintage, her picks are the perfect “girly-chic meets old-fashioned cozy” vibe.
So, we hopped on the phone to discuss her manners pet peeves, holiday-playlist go-to songs, and design point of view. And, the only thing better than sweeping up everything at the star’s One Kings Lane sale? An invite to peek at her N.Y. pad (and dreamy pink sofa!) for ourselves. (Liv, we promise to bring our best manners.)
How would you describe your own home/design aesthetic in a few words?
“I’m so eclectic in my taste, and I really collect things from all over. I have this beautiful pink couch — it looks a little bit like a Chanel bag, has all these tassels…My taste is also a little bit old-fashioned, a little girly. I love the Hollywood-Deco vibe, all with a weird, modern twist of Danish.”
What are your rules for holiday decor? Do you go over the top with holly and lights and stuff? Or, do you keep things more low-key?
“Really, I think just have fun; it depends if you have children or not. When I was a little girl, my mom [and I] would string popcorn and cranberries. When I drive by someone’s house and it’s all decked out for the holidays, it makes me smile. I have an 8-year-old son, so all those things are really fun.”
What are your best holiday hosting tips?
“It’s so hard because there are so many things! One thing I always try to do — because I love music so much — is to always try to make a playlist and think about the tone I want to set. Especially around Christmastime, there are all these songs that have this nostalgia. I’m into baking and cooking a lot, so I have a playlist called “Kitchen Happiness” with Edith Piaf, Nina Simone, Fats Waller, and Cab Calloway.”

New Yorkers—and let’s face it, today’s youth—are preceded by the unfortunate reputation of being brisk and rude (we’re just in a rush!). And, while we’re not apologizing for our breakneck schedules and attitudes, it wouldn’t hurt anyone to brush up on etiquette. Thankfully, a refresher course on the rules of sophisticated socializing has landed on our doorstep, care of one Dorothea Johnson—the sought-after Washington, DC etiquette expert—and her granddaughter, the one and only Liv Tyler. So, before you interact with another member of humanity, take a peek inside Modern Manners: Tools to Take You To The Top:
“…maintain eye contact while shaking hands and greeting someone.”
“…show respect for the invisible personal space of others; keep your body at a minimum of about 18 inches (1½ feet) between you and the other person.”
“…let the person finish talking before you chime in.”
Thanks to my lovely and ever amazing friend Alexa, I was able to add some pretty old Dazed & Confused scans back from 1998.

I’ve been trying to catch up on all the latest events that Liv attended in the last few months and finally got around to upload them.
The latest events Liv attended this month can be now found in the gallery. On September 7 she was spotted at the BLK DNM Wild Poster Launch and a few days later (September 11) she was seen outside the Proenza Schouler Show at MBFW.
