Olympic gold medalists’ Gabby Douglas (16) and Jordyn Wieber (17) are obviously amazing athletes but they also know a thing about beauty. Case in point: They each did their own hair and makeup at the Olympics. Impressive, right? I sat down with them to learn about their favorite products, their beauty icon (they share the same one!), and their intense training.
You two have been going non-stop since returning from London. Have you had any free time?
JW: “We’ve been having so much fun! Yesterday we had some free time and went shopping!”
GD: “And tonight, we each get to fly home!”
Ooh, shopping! What are some of your favorite stores?
JW: “I like Forever 21 and yesterday I went into this store called C. Wonder, and it was really cool.”
GD: “I like Topshop and BCBG.”
So you two are just like regular teenager girls?
GD: “Yes! We hang out with our friends and talk about boy crushes.”
