Natalie Dormer is a workout warrior.

The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay, Part 2 and Game of Thrones actress “loves to exercise,” she said in the December issue of Women’s Health.

“I’m always open to new experiences, and if a friend takes a class that they really love, I’m always game to try something new,” she said. “I went through a mad spinning phase — I think most people go through a spinning phase.” And she’s also been adventurous: “I tried aerial yoga for the first time at the beginning of the yea — that was kind of groovy.”

But Dormer does have her old favorites. “I like to run a lot,” she said. “I find running quite therapeutic — I find its good for my mind, for my body. I feel that way about yoga as well. I’ve been practicing yoga now since I was in my early 20s. As long as I got my yoga mat and my trainers [sneakers] with me, I’m pretty sorted wherever I shoot or travel in the world.”

But fitness is only one part of the equation when it comes to taking care of her body. “I’m massively a fan of juicing,” Dormer said. “I had some friends that started me juicing a little while ago and I love it. It’s so good for you. You really notice the difference — I’ve noticed the difference in my skin and my hair since I’ve committed to juicing better.”

So, does she ever indulge in a guilty pleasure?  “I’m quite easy. As long as there is hummus and coconut water in the refrigerator, I’m a happy girl,” she said. “Even my vices are going to be good for me. I like my red wine — that is good for you, for your heart and so-forth. I love my dark chocolate — so that’s antioxidants. I’m a coffee girl as well. I like my caffeine. It stimulates you, gets you ready for your run.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Second person questioning regime. It’s a regimen.

So for Christmas, People magazine needs a better editor, a spellchecker and now a dictionary.
