On October 18, 2012, Bergdorf Goodman celebrated 111 Years of Extraordinary at the Plaza Hotel. I, a luckier than lucky little Beauty Gal, was invited to take in the festivities.

And here’s what I wore, via Rent The Runway.

It’s funny, I am generally not a sparkly gown kind of girl. I usually prefer less bedazzled fabrics. But the blush tone of this gown just sort of spoke to me and my brown skin. And, come on, let’s be real — it was BG’s 111th anniversary. If ever a time to sparkle, THAT WAS IT!

Thank you Rent The Runway for helping me pull together this extraordinary look. For more on BG’s 111 Gala, check out the Bergdorf Goodman blog.

If you’ve never been to the Bergdorf Goodman beauty level, my condolences. I understand that there is only one Bergdorfs and not everyone can have the Bergdorf experience but that doesn’t stop me from wishing everyone could. When I first visited the beauty level a couple of years ago, I honestly thought it was perfection and now that Christian Dior is back, it is simply otherworldly.

To call the Christian Dior space at Bergdorfs a counter would be a great injustice. The space is 470 square feet and the back wall is equipped with 16 screens that display a rotating array of images that have come to define Dior. The installation was designed by Yoram, the same artist responsible for the Dior 57th Street boutique installation.

La Collection Privée

Dior Fragrance

My absolute favorite thing about the whole space is that La Collection Privée is available in all its magnificent splendor. Dior is one of a few houses with an in house perfumer – François Demachy. Demachy has been the nose behind Dior for years. If you are looking for a new fragrance and want to sample Mr. Demachy ‘s work, you absolutely must visit Bergdorfs and speak with Roberta Ballet. Her technique to help you find your perfect Dior fragrance is unparalleled. (Leave your preconceived notions and biases at the door and just go with it –you will be pleasantly surprised.)


Golden Jungle Palette


Dior Cosmetics

In addition to fragrance, the Christian Dior Counter has the entire fall color cosmetic line. According to Ricky Wilson, Dior’s national makeup artist, the fall collection is all about nudes – dressy nudes, to be precise. “The collection perfectly aligns with my personal beauty philosophy – gorgeous, natural-looking skin without being boring. The collection is a perfect example of how a woman doesn’t necessarily need a ton of eyeliner and red lips to look sexy. Most people associate nude with shades of beige and brown but nude can be anything that is transparent, including pink and clear reds…really, any color that looks like it’s coming from within. Our fall collection is designed to flaunt your most important accessory — great skin!”

The more I write about beauty and beauty products the more obsessed I get about anti-aging products.  When I talk about anti aging I’m not talking about things to prevent me from aging (as if those products exist) but more so products that will aide in gracefully aging.  Nobody, I mean nobody wants sagging, super wrinkly skin, not matter how old.  With that said, I am all about products that slow down that sagging and wrinkling process (I can sag and wrinkle in the casket.)



AMOREPACIFIC TIME RESPONSE SKIN RENEWAL GEL CREME claims to slow down and reverse skin aging on a genetic level. Color me excited!

AMOREPACIFIC partnered with Dr. David Weitz Research Group at Harvard University to design a new skincare delivery system that penetrates the skin’s surface to deliver anti-aging ingredients into the deepest layers of the skin for a 24-hour release period. The delivery system is everything in this product! There are 63 actives in this gel creme and were chosen to help calm, soothe and smooth skin while simultaneously correcting, protecting and restoring the skin to its optimal state of firmness and hydration. According to the manufacturers, AMOREPACIFIC TIME RESPONSE SKIN RENEWAL GEL CREME radically renews, restores and reverses all signs of skin aging, from dynamic lines and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation and sagging skin. Yes!

Check the Benefits:

  • Restores collagen production improving skin density, volume and resilience while reducing lines, wrinkles and sagging
  • Regulates melanin production, reducing hyperpigmentation, improving skin clarity and discoloration
  • Controls moisture levels throughout all layers of the skin resulting in smooth, supple skin Improves cellular regeneration and turnover while preventing cell breakdown for a youthful complexion
  • Increases natural antioxidant production to prevent premature skin aging while protecting against free radical damage
  • Stimulates hyaluronic acid production to significantly increase moisture levels in the skin Improves skin’s circulation for enhanced product performance and results
  • Reduces inflammation to improve skin clarity and functioning
  • Restores natural barrier function to prevent excess moisture loss
  • Unique 24-hour time-release formula stimulates skin functions for longer lasting benefits

Ever sit back and give thought to ‘why’ skin shows signs of aging? Other than the obvious (getting older), what’s the real reason behind 11′s betwixt brows, zig-zag road mapping at outer corners of eyes, and overly-expressive lines that book-end the mouth?

According to the collective brain power behind Yves Saint Laurent’s latest skin care innovation, Forever Youth Liberator (212 872 8654), the linchpin is glycans — when skin slows down its production of glycans, the first signs of aging appear. [Who knew?!]

Gilded Lids. Glimmering Golds. Metal Eyes. Must-have Metallics. You’ve heard it all before. While striking in theory and positively stunning on the runway, for many women, the reality of shimmer on lids is downright scary. . . Sure, it’s a dazzling little look that we love to see on our favorite starlets, but for some reason — we shudder at the thought of glitz & twinkle on our eyes.

With the help of  Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes [brand NEW for Spring!!], a Sharpie, and a sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper, we help you navigate the season’s metallic craze.
