We aren't surprised that actress Christina Applegate graces the cover of People magazine's annual 100 Most Beautiful People for 2009.
The 37-year-old stunning blonde and star of telelvision's Samantha Who? had been through a public battle with breast cancer. She was very open about undergoing a double mastectomy last July, and then following up with reconstructive breast surgery last November.
Christina Applegate has been an inspiration to many and a truly gutsy woman.
In the meantime, we were curious to see how this slender and all-American Hollywood beauty keeps looking so healthy and pretty.
We stumbled upon a beauty list she gave to InStyle magazine last summer. Let's put it this way, Christina Applegate has very luxurious taste:
1. La Mer Face Cream (starting at $125 and up, at fine dept. stores)
2. It's a 10 Leave-In Hair Conditioner ($18, at professional salons, and beauty online stores)
3. MAC Tinted Lip Conditioners ($14.50, at fine dept. stores, and beauty online stores)
4. Child Perfume Extremely Rich Body Creme ($86, at fine dept. stores).
That is some good stuff, Christina.
She also has a super nice boyfriend in musician Martyn Lenoble. And Christina Applegate says she's not a timid girl any longer:
"I used to be really shy but I started to come into my own in my late 20s and early 30s," Applegate, 37, tells PEOPLE in the cover interview for the annual Most Beautiful issue. "Now I'm not afraid to speak up in a room full of people and be a part of the conversation."
