Celeb Getaway: Kristen Davis
Thursday, May 29, 2008
What's your favourite vacation spot and why?
Well I love to travel and I've been to many, many places but probably a little spot near the Masai Mara in Kenya called Campia Kondi. It's an ecologically friendly camp where you can see the animals but also just relax. There are Italian people who run it and they cook pasta and Kilimanjaro is in the distance it's just magical. But there are so many fantastic places. Bali would be number two; a close second.
What's your number one travel tip?
Pack lightly, and the way to do that is to pick a few colours and stick to those colours so that your pieces interchange. So … black and white and grey, or black, white and red; or maybe one bold dress and then everything else in white if you're going to an island. And that way everything changes with [everything else] and you don't have to take a lot of outfits.
Do you often buy there too, depending on the place?
I might buy a hat or a bag but I don't buy clothes because then I have to take them back.
I noticed in the movie all those outfits in Mexico were amazing.
And did you see the luggage? I don't think you guys appreciate the luggage because we had Louis Vuitton, we had Prada; we had the most beautiful luggage in the world.
What do you never leave home without?
My moisturiser. I take it on the plane in a small little thing now because of all the rules. But you can never over-moisturise when you're flying.
Ahava. You get Ahava from the Dead Sea.
Have you ever been to Australia?
What's your best Australian travel experience?
I went to a restaurant I can't remember what it's called, near Bondi. It was night so we had blankets because it got a little cool, but you could see the beach and you could feel the beach and it had good food and it was very beautiful.
Did you have a favourite location from the film?
Wow … well, Malibu, but it was pretending to be Mexico and it was pretty fun. It's always fun to go with the girls somewhere. There's something exciting about filming somewhere [different]. And then the poster, which is right behind you, is of the Meatpacking District in the middle of the night. That was really fun because it is just like that it glitters, it's got the cobblestone. So, one or the other [location].
Where is the strangest place you've ever seen your own image?
In Melbourne one time, I went to promote the show because [Australia] is very supportive [of] our show. They threw a little cocktail party for me and they thought it would be really cool to do an ink-blot picture of me, almost like a Warhol picture, and they put it on all of the waiters' shirts. So for the whole party I was just like, "Why is my face on there?" It was very flattering but it was also very surreal and it was just so weird. Then they gave me one to give to my mum. It was a real picture that they had coloured.
