British babe turned New Yorker Chelsea Leyland is a famed DJ and model. She’s opened for the likes of Diplo, Duran Duran, and MIA, and is known for spinning at events put on by Chanel, Valentino, and Burberry (just to name a few), earning her title of “Fashion’s DJ.”
But despite her Queen Bee status on the nightlife scene, Leyland maintains healthy lifestyle practices like “eating well, trying to get as much sleep as possible, and getting B-12 shots,” she says.
Leyland is just one example of the growing number of fashion darlings, such as close friend Hannah Bronfman and Sport’s Illustrated swimsuit model Julie Henderson, who skip the cigarette-and-Diet Coke diet for a greener, leafier, more wholesome lifestyle.
“I have a smoothie and green juice every day,” Leyland says. “Whether I make them myself or go to Juice Press, I try to make it a priority. The problem is when I’m sitting on an airplane or traveling. It’s not easy to find juice bars in cities like Paris and London.”
Here’s Leyland’s very own “Mean Greeney” recipe, which no doubt helps her bounce back from spinning into the wee hours. —Jamie McKillop
