Fran has style, Fran has style!
While most of us get our beauty news from magazines and social media, Fran Drescher’s first introduction to makeup brand Laura Geller — of which she is now the face — was on TV. “I was with my parents watching TV. I saw ‘Laura Geller’ in the guidebook and didn’t know what it was, so I clicked on it.” What happened next was serendipity. “About a week later, I got a call from Geller asking if I wanted to be an influencer for the brand,” Drescher recalled.
Taking her potential role to heart, Drescher asked to test Geller’s makeup to make sure she felt confident about attaching her name to the product. Almost immediately, Drescher, his friends, and even his mother developed favorites. So Drescher took the job and became the spokesperson for a campaign for women over 40 that launched in 2021. Frescher, who had been on the small screen for years, felt seen.
“Very often you look in magazines, [at 40] This is where women begin to fall off a cliff and be quickly overlooked in advertising and sales targeting. And so, I felt really, really good about it,” says Drescher, now 64. Another draw is the non-toxic brand aligned with Drescher and the mission of his Cancer Schmancer Foundation.

Drescher, who has one of Hollywood’s most iconic smiles, is “obsessed” with her oral hygiene, but it has nothing to do with vanity. “I embrace biological dentistry, which does not treat the mouth as an anomaly of the rest of the body, but as a doorway,” she explains. This probiotic toothpaste created by her dentist, Dr. Gerry Curtola, helps the good bacteria in your mouth (yes, it does exist!) to thrive.
