Tweet Earlier this year, my hair guru Keith Carpenter tried to persuade me to go back to the kind of pixie style he gave me in the 1990s. I was like, “NAHHHH,” because I love my mullet. I’ve done variations on mullet-y hairstyles — short on top, long in the back — for years. This […]

Tweet I had a private event at the Plaza Hotel last Thursday in order to present my entire Maneater ring collection to press and retailers. The centerpiece of the display was supposed to be my new Pink Elephant and Tipsy Writer ring, but it was absent for a good reason — a photoshoot related to […]

Tweet I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer day, complete with everything I loved about summer in the 1980s: pool floats, snake-patterned bathing suits and teased-up hair. Well, maybe not the teased-up hair. That never went well with pools.

Tweet Last week, I asked my hair guru, Keith Carpenter, for a mullet-y haircut. As the Beastie Boys song “Mullet Head” goes, “Cut the sides, don’t touch the back!” I was inspired by Lady Gaga’s longtime friend and DJ Lady Starlight. I was hyp-mo-tized by Starlight’s hair at Gaga’s Roseland concert this spring. #482086591 / […]

Tweet The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala takes place tonight, but the event wasn’t always a spring thing — it used to be held in December. I went three times in the 1990s, when regular people could buy reasonably priced tickets for dessert and dancing after the celebrity dinner. I still have […]

Tweet Whenever a celebrity cuts her hair into a pixie — or pretends to — lots of other women are tempted to do the same. Not me, though. I had ultra-short hair for years. I’m pixied out. I previously posted this photo of my supershort 1992 ‘do. But I just rediscovered this photo from 1997. […]

Tweet For my New Year’s Eve dinner with 15 friends at Balthazar last night, I got out a vintage Versace dress that I haven’t worn since I rang in the year 2008 at my combination New Year’s/40th birthday party. The dress is from a 1992 Versace collection. When I got it in 2007, I was […]

Tweet This photo was taken on Dec. 2, 2001, at friend’s wedding. My hair was so … precise! It reminds me slightly of designer Mary McFadden‘s signature ‘do.

Tweet MrB and I were invited to the Fresh Air Fund’s ’20s-themed fundraising dinner last night, so I got out the beaded ’20s-style vintage dress that I bought in 2007 and first wore in 2009. At the party, big fake pearl strands and feather boas were given out as favors, and I added those to […]

Tweet At one of my old corporate jobs, we wimmins got to talking about hair and I mentioned the super-aggressive cowlick lurking in my bangs. One of my employees then asked me what a cowlick was and why it was called that.  I said, “It’s when your hair sticks up like a cow licked ya!” […]
