The evening concluded with a surprise live performance of Bang Bang Bang accompanied by Amanda Warner of MNDR! The crowd went while as the duo instantly amped up (the already very energetic) crowd into a total dance and cheer-fest. The only thing that could have possibly made the moment better was Q-Tip and the rangers.

The video is too good not to share…

We then crossed the street to Toy, for their re-location party. The restaurant-bar hotspot celebrated it’s final night in the Meatpacking with a sensual burlesque performance — all eyes were on this feathered goddess. As to where Toy will be re-locating to, it’s under wraps… for now!

Kiehl’s Celebrates their 160th Anniversary in True NYC Fashion

New York-based skin care brand, Kiehl’s Since 1851 celebrated their 160th Anniversary last week across the street from their iconic flagship location on 13th and 3rd Avenue. While the rain was pouring outside, the stars we’re shining bright inside. Guests included Pharrell Williams, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Jonas, Alan Cummings, Richie Rich, Ana Matronic and Babydaddy of the Scissor Sisters and Leigh Lezark and Geordon Nicol of The Misshapes.

My lovely date Erika (who’s wedding I just got back from in Acapulco!) and I got there on the later side and the party was bumping! We had ourselves a little dance party, but didn’t hold a candle to Richie Rich. He decided to get up on stage and do an impromptu performance to Prince’s Raspberry Beret for us (this could be the best video ever–only thing missing, glitter!).


Kevin Jonas took a second from his phone conversation to blew us a kiss…


Then we concluded our night on one of Kiehl’s iconic motorcycles, where I thought we were taking pictures in a photo booth –even better, a flip book photo booth! Erika and I look insane. I love it!


If you’re in NYC check out the Kiehl’s Flagship Store at 109 Third Avenue. As part of their heritage project, they’ve included a brand-new installation of an interactive 160th Anniversary Retrospective at the store.  Cheers to you Kiehl’s for 160 years of great skin care products!


Wella Professionals Launches Flagship Salon at Pipino 57 in NYC

Model and actress, Rebecca Romijn and celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino hosted the opening of Wella Professionals first North American flagship salon at Pipino 57 and the launch of Wella’s new product line in New York City.

I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t know nearly enough about Ric Pipino when I received the invitation (aside from his Pipino salon in Nolita somewhere –which I’ve been meaning to try). The cool factor of the new salon alone and that it carries the Wella Professionals line (not to mention Ric Pipino’s celebrity clientele, runway work and unbeknownst to me he has a signature hair line, Revolution In Cut) has me so excited to go back and try both locations.

The grand opening attracted the likes of Bridget Moynahan, Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl), Leigh Lezark (from The Misshapes), Alison Brie (Mad Men), and Fern Mallis (the originator of New York Fashion Week!). And while everyone showed up looking fabulous –Kelly Rutherford is as effortlessly chic in person as she is on Gossip Girl (the photos don’t do her justice). And as much as I’m not into all that Hills/City stuff, I have to say Whitney Port is stunning, and the girl can dress! Meanwhile I got caught in the rain and my hair couldn’t have looked more tragic if I tried.

Fun fact! I caught up with Leigh Lazark at the event who shared that she became a fan of the Wella line when she was traveling in Ukraine and was coloring her own hair. Turns out she’s
