For Women, By Women: The Beauty Chef’s Carla Oates

Carla Oates is no stranger to Free People — she’s granted us several interviews about her famously successful brand, The Beauty Chef, and now she’s here to empower YOU to follow your gut.

When we asked our videographer Jana about her date with Carla Oates, she could do little more than beam at us a giGANtic smile…not unlike Carla’s. Immediately warm, open and spirited, Carla shared with us her motivation behind the creation of The Beauty Chef, the advice she got — and ignored — and the absolute necessity of natural foods for optimal health.

Glow on, take a look, and watch out for future episodes from our new series, For Women, By Women.

  1. Inspirational! Would love to know what makeup she is wearing, or wears on a daily basis (yes, I know it’s 98% gut and inner beauty, but what about the rest?)??
