Spring is coming though it may be hard to believe. If looking out your window doesn’t convince you, then peruse the makeup counter at Barneys and you will become a believer. Bright polishes and pretty lip lacquers are starting to stack the shelves. Spring beauty is all about pops of color and dewy moments. I […]
Unlike Christmas, Valentine’s Day is for sinners as well as saints- we don’t judge. I’ve received a lot of pitches for V-Day stories, lip gloss, body lotion, grape fruit masks, you name it- but the one stand came from one of my favorite salons in the Meatpacking- Wonderland.

The inspiration for the hair was Ann-Sofie Back herself. “She wanted something that looked brutal, like they cut it themselves,” Rudi explained. “It’s a little Girl Interrupted, Winona Ryder hacked fringe kind of vibe but seen through the eyes […]
I’m a fan of all things nude. And though I wholeheartedly support Lena Dunham’s nakedness on Sunday nights, I’m speaking of the color variety here. Minimalism is always chic (think Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy). So when Clinique announced their 16 Shades of Beige Launch I was into it. Firstly, I salute their inclusiveness. It’s great to see a major brand like Clinique offering nude shades for all the ladies out there. . .
