Favorite fitness activity as a kid…
Skiing. Growing up, we spent almost every weekend on the slopes as it was the only way to survive winters in New England. I was in a ski club called Black and Blue Trail Smashers, and we were a pretty formidable gang of 11 year olds.
And my favorite exercise routines now…
Tennis and running. I prefer to exercise outside. I don’t really ever do classes (only the occasional barre class if my best friend Blake is teaching). I’ve been traveling a ton lately — I’m on a plane once or twice a week these days — so I’m currently hooked on customizable workout apps that you can do just about anywhere. I like the Nike+ Training Club app and Sworkit. They’re great when I’m in a hotel room.
I love paddle boarding because…
I am happiest when I’m out on the ocean — I come from a family of sailors and am pretty sure I have salt water in my veins. There’s nothing more peaceful than being out on the water, just standing on the sea and paddling into the horizon. The view is pretty good out there, too.
And where I go…
I love paddling around the miles of coastline at our summer house in Maine. It’s easy to get in a one to two hour-long workout when you’re gliding past rocky little coves, sandy beaches and tide pools. I have two SUP boards, both of which are inflatable — they roll up into a small duffel! They’re as sturdy as surf boards, but you can throw them in the trunk of your car, so I can paddle just about anywhere I can drive. Red Paddle Co.’s Inflatable SUP boards are my favorite.
My motivation mantra…
A one-hour workout is four percent of your day.
My fitness tip for travelers…
Ask your hotel concierge for a running map — Claridge’s in London, for instance, has the best little jogging route booklet. It’s a great way to explore the place you’re visiting while also getting in a workout. Personally, I’d much rather scope out a city than hit the hotel gym.
And when you’re stuck on a long flight…
Definitely work out the morning or evening before a long haul if possible. When you’re in the air, get up and stretch. I wouldn’t have survived a recent 18-hour, non-stop flight to Hong Kong without doing leg lifts in the back of a plane. At airports, take the stairs and skip those moving walkway escalators.
And when you’re on a beach getaway…
Nothing too strenuous when you’re trying to relax! Do something that doesn’t feel like working out when you’re on holiday — like swimming, paddle boarding, surfing or jogging on the beach.
Or on a snowy escape…
If there’s a mountain, ski or snowboard. Or take a snowy walk or hike.
Favorite healthy snacks/drinks…
Juice Press smoothies; goji berries; avocado on everything, and, when I’m spending a lot of time in airports, a daily half-tablespoonful of elderberry syrup with a few drops of grapefruit-seed extract to boost immunity.
I define wellness as…
Being in pretty good shape for the shape you are in. A sound mind is a sound body.
Mr. and Mrs. Bateman
Lindsay Talbot and Christopher Bateman tied the knot in her family rose garden overlooking the Little Boar’s Head, New Hampshire sea. Lindsay was inspired by black and white photographs from the 1940’s and 1950’s captured in Evelyn Byrd Dows’ midsummer wedding with large oak tree’s and long banquet tables. Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2016 Mason gown fit right in and was ultimately decided upon by both the bride and the groom. Traditional and elegance, were the keynotes to this Herrera brides wedding. The reception was held in a sailcloth tent overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Blue and white china and ginger jars were the finishing touches to the long banquet tables.
We wish Lindsay and Christopher a lifetime of happiness!
ICON AND MUSE CHARLOTTE RAMPLING REMINISCES IN THE NEW DOCUMENTARY THE LOOK
by Lindsay Talbot
She’s lounged by pools in St.-Tropez for Helmut Newton and fended off the advances of Woody Allen in Stardust Memories (off-screen he declared her to be “the ideal woman”). She’s played the heavy-lidded femme fatale and the elusive muse, and she’s always been an exemplar of effortless, inimitable style. It’s no wonder that directors and photographers have spent the past 40 years under the spell of her cool-to-icy gray-eyed stare and high-bred beauty—but how do you capture the many sides of Charlotte Rampling?
Angelina Maccarone’s fascinating documentary portrait, The Look, which premieres tonight, attempts to answer that question. The director spent the past three-and-a-half years following the iconic actress, catching her in conversation with friends and artists on topics like exposure, age, desire, and beauty. With Peter Lindbergh, she has a laugh about how her decision to appear un-retouched and without makeup in one of his recent portraits was considered a feat of courage that put her on par with Alexander the Great. With Juergen Teller, she rehashes their highly subversive collaborative spring 2004 ad campaign for Marc Jacobs, titled “Louis XV,” leading Rampling to reminisce about her first nude portrait. “Helmut said, ‘Take your clothes off and lie on the table.’ And then it was over within an hour!” she explains with trademark nonchalance over dessert and champagne at the Waverly Inn.

Rampling, who also stars in this month’s Melancholia and The Mill and the Cross, seems unaware of the influence she has on the sartorial world; she’s amused to hear, for example, that Marc Jacobs’s fall collection for Louis Vuitton appeared to be an homage to her character in The Night Porter. “Did Marc Jacobs say that?” Rampling asks. “I know that the film has influenced certain people at different times, you know like, Madonna.” Nowadays, Rampling does still attend the occasional fashion show in Paris, and finds herself drawn to the unfussiness of menswear and the well-tailored suits by Yohji Yamamoto and Jil Sander. “The truth is that I have always liked to dress simply,” she says. “I think any sense of style I have must come from my mum and dad, because they were the two most elegant people I ever knew. My mum would just put on any old thing and look fantastic, and my father was always beautifully dressed.”
Rampling, 65, is currently filming in Milan and learning Italian. She doesn’t rule out the idea of returning to the stage one day or maybe even trying her hand at directing. “I actually like my life to be a bit vague. There are not too many projects that I feel I have to do.” Rampling cringes at the idea of watching her own movies, but she doesn’t mind looking back at old portraits and photographs of herself: “I have boxes of pictures of myself and have many of them framed. I’m always surprised to see that I looked like that.”
