Beyonce built a solid friendship first: “We were friends first, for a year and a half before we’d went on any date, on the phone for a year and a half. That foundation is so important in a relationship. Just to have someone that you just like, you know? Someone that is honest.”

Dita Von Teese

Dita has seen the benefit of good communication: “I think the best love advice I’ve ever received is really about understanding that communication is key, of course, but also that there’s not one perfect person for you. You kind of have to accept what are the things that are negotiable for you and what are not.”

Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana says respect goes a long way: “You’ve got to be good to each other … it really comes back to respect. I was raised in a very Catholic, Italian family, and it was all about respect. Don’t talk badly about [your partner] the second they walk out the door; really preserve your relationship and be good to each other. Treat it like gold.”

Lily Collins

Lily thinks honesty is the best policy: ”It doesn’t matter how long it takes to get there, to be in love, as long as in the end people are honest. When you’re honest it pays off. Everyone has their own speed at which they’re honest, so I would say it’s beautiful but it depends on person to person.”

Rosamund Pike

Rosamund believes time apart works wonders: “I do think separation is key to a relationship. I go out with my partner and we are put next to each other – there’s a feeling of, ‘What, you don’t think we can’t operate without each other?’ I don’t need him as a crutch. Of course, he’s the person I want to go home with but he’s not necessarily the person I want to sit next to. I’d rather meet someone new, and he would too.”
