RUTH RILEY The Chicago Sky star travels the world but loves coming home. Growing up on a farm in Indiana, Ruth Riley's world was pretty small. Then she became a WNBA player. By the time she joined the Chicago Sky in 2012, Riley, who turns 34 in August, had played basketball in Spain, Poland, and Greece— and visited everywhere from Panama to Mali to do outreach work in the off-season. But there's no place like Chicago. "It gives me a little bit of my Midwest upbringing," she says. "And, of course, that good old Midwestern hospitality." 116 Caption will go here tk xerit lore del utpatisit velisl BY SOMEBODY HERE Beauty philosophy: A woman is beautiful when she's comfortable and confident in herself, her body, and her own style. Hero: My mom made incredible personal sacrifices to raise my brother, sister, and me on her own. She gave me my creative spirit, love for travel, and open-mindedness. Favorite basketball movie: Hoosiers. It mirrors my story of growing up on an Indiana farm and playing high-school basketball. I used to watch it before every playoff game in high school! Cause closest to my heart: I'm passionate about women's and children's issues, especially when it comes to global health. I'm a spokesperson for Nothing But Nets, the UN Foundation's malaria initiative, and I work with No Kid Hungry on eliminating childhood hunger in the US. Trademark look: Simple and chic. I love the classic look of black and red paired with elegant accessories, natural makeup, and a sophisticated ponytail. Definition of success: Utilizing your talents to the best of your ability, positively influencing others, and living out your priorities every day. I'm not driven by perfection—that's a lonely journey. PHOTOGRAPHY BY SOMEBODY HERE NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in St. Moritz ($42). Sephora, 520 N.
