An avid philanthropist, this Russian beauty has a knack for building business.
For Polina Chebotareva, beauty starts with what you fuel your body with. “I am immersed in the world of better-for-you food and beverages, as [my company] seeks to revolutionize the food system with healthier, cleaner ingredients and products,” says the Newport Coast dweller, who’s the co-founder and managing partner of Cambridge Companies SPG. “I feel honored to work with such innovative brands as Foodstirs, Once Upon a Farm, Tosi, Powerful Yogurt, Nona Lim and more.” And when she’s not adding to her impressive résumé—she was previously the executive vice president of a real estate firm, managing upward of $350 million in transactions—she’s giving back as an underwriter for the Harvesters Food Bank and as an advocate for the Orange County Museum of Art and JDRF. Here, the powerhouse spills her get-gorgeous go-tos.
