Sugar, spice, and everything nice…that’s what Josie Stevens is made of. Ok and maybe some saline and bleach too, but don’t let the big blonde hair and mega boobs fool you, Josie Stevens is not your typical Hollywood snob “rock star wife”. The sugary sweet, Hello Kitty obsessed wife to legendary rock guitarist, Steve Stevens is in fact, one of the most down to earth and lovely women I’ve ever had the pleasure of interviewing. Josie really stood out from the rest of the cast of her hit show titled “Married To Rock“. With adventures of making a life sized doll (private parts included) version of herself and an over-the-top Hello Kitty castle themed wedding (so jelz), I just knew I had to track down this Hollywood glamour puss for a quick Q&A about beauty, boobs, and keeping that spark with a rock star!
GLOSSY: Hi, Josie you’re my favorite rock star wife on MTR, mostly because You’re like a life sized Barbie doll! Oh wait, you actually ARE a life sized Barbie Doll, how is “Josie Doll” by the way?
JOSIE: Aww, hehe, thank you so much! I am actually a huge fan of Barbie and do try to style some of my looks after hers. And as for Josie Doll, she has fully recuperated but she may need therapy after her misadventure. haha
GLOSSY: In three words how would you describe your style?
JOSIE: Fun, colorful, kawaii.
GLOSSY: Who is your fashion icon?
JOSIE: Hmm, that’s a tough question… There are so many elements and people that have influenced my look, from drag queens to Keith Richards to cartoons to the beautiful Shibuya girls in Tokyo. I am fortunate to get to travel a lot and I think I have picked up a lot of different inspiration from seeing the styles different girls rock all over the world. I also like watching old movies and art films for inspiration and try and read every fashion magazine from across the world that I can get my hands on. I am a fan of high fashion, but to me the most visually interesting people are the ones who are a bit on the outskirts of “fashion”. The girls who take a piece of something modern and stylish and put their own timeless spin on it, and of course, rock stars are a big inspiration… My husband, Steve Stevens, has had a big influence on my style, he has always had his own unique, amazing look and he inspires me to try new things. If I had to pick 3 besides him, I would say Kaoru Watanabe from “EGG magazine”, Pamela Anderson in “VIP” and Raquel Welch in “Myra Breckinridge”.
GLOSSY: What are your top 5 beauty essentials?
JOSIE: Nail art, hair extensions, fake lashes, lip gloss and eyeliner. I never feel dressed without them!
GLOSSY: As a nail art enthusiast, I must say your nails are always so fabulous!! Who does your 3-D nails? And what has been your craziest design?
JOSIE: Yuki at Jewel Candy nails (@jewelcandy_yuki) has been doing my nails for a few months now and she is amazing. I also used to frequent Marie Nails in Hollywood… I have had a lot of crazy designs, so its hard to pick which is the wildest. The giant hello kitty candy themed ones in Episode 1 of “Married to Rock” were pretty wild… And in the still shoot for the shows promotional photos, my friend Kristen and I did giant 3D metal skulls and spiders on a black nail which was pretty hot.
JOSIE: I am a makeup artist, but these days I haven’t been taking on many new clients. I mainly do my own, Steve’s and a few close friends.I do my own some days, and Joyce Bonelli (@glamsquadbts) does my makeup quite a bit. She is amazing, talented and fearless. I love her. I also work with Allison Burns (@allietotheb), who is great and very sweet. I love talking hair and makeup, so feel free to tweet me @JosieStevensMTR or hit me up on Facebook (Josie Stevens).
GLOSSY: How do you maintain that girlish figure? You know most celebrities say ” I can eat whatever I want and never exercise blah blah blah” give us the low down. baby food diets? or 5 hours at the gym 7 days a week?
JOSIE: To be honest, I don’t count calories but I do try to avoid eating too many sweets or fried foods because I think it is bad for my skin and I am pretty active. I think that a lot of girls want to give the impression that their look is effortless, but I don’t support that. I think its unfair and makes women feel badly about themselves. When you are in the entertainment business your look is part of your craft and there is no shame in admitting you work hard to look a certain way…. I am naturally thin, but of course I have some unnatural parts. haha… I think that the secret is just to make the most of what you have and love yourself, instead of trying to make yourself into something your not. That holds true in everything in life, but certainly I know a lot of people who wish that they were taller, shorter, thinner, curvier, whatever. You cant fight your build without making yourself miserable, so I think we should just do our best to eat healthy, exercise and embrace whatever shape we have. There are pros and cons to every body type, but the secret is just to dress to enhance what you like and flatter what you dont and to accept your flaws as being beautiful too. Francis Bacon said “There is no beauty that not some strangeness in the proportion.” and I like to think thats true… I have also never met a woman who loved every part of her body. If there is someone out there who does, bless you!
GLOSSY: As a Rock Star Wife What makes you feel sexy?
JOSIE: My husband makes me feel sexier then anything in the world. No matter what I am wearing, or not wearing, , he always makes me feel beautiful. I think true love is sexier than anything else… but of course, I love dressing up in hot outfits, corsets, high heels, sexy makeup, big hair. I feel sexiest when I feel glamorous and confident.
JOSIE: My extensions are done by Kristen at Sirens Salon on Spaulding (Los Angeles,CA), and my stylist is Johnny Stuntz. They are both incredible hair dressers, and very close friends of mine. Johnny and Joyce (my makeup artist) and I are working on setting up a date to do some hair and makeup tutorials for my youtube channel (josiestevensmtr) but we are all so busy scheduling has been difficult! I think the key to big hair is to start by setting your hair in curls or flat-ironing it, and then using a fine toothed comb or brush to back-tease small sections starting at the crown of your head, and using quite a bit of hairspray as you go (we use Elnett). Once it is all giant and looks like you stuck your finger in a socket, haha, you can use a brush to shape it into a big rounded style or a teasing pick to shape it into a more spiky rocker style, and then spray, spray, spray it again. After that, you should be set for the day. I like to finish it off with a hair bow or fascinator.
GLOSSY: Josie, you know I HAD to ask… How big are Your “girls”? And does your hubby have a pet name for them?
JOSIE: I wear a 32G or 30GG, which basically makes it quite difficult to find cute bras, but I have found a few great places online. No pet names for them, but he is their biggest fan.
GLOSSY: Thank You Josie for taking the time sharing your girly secrets with me. You guys can find Josie on twitter @JosieStevensMTR, Facebook “Josie Stevens”, and on E! Channel Sunday nights at 10:30/9:30 central on “Married to Rock“!
