I must admit, some days, being in the beauty business can be quite glamorous. I had the great fortune to host six fabulous beauty editors from Allure, Vogue, Elle, InStyle, Lucky, and Marie Claire at the New Yorkers for Children Charity: A Fool’s Fete. While the gala was a blast (Mary Kate Olsen and Tinsley Mortimer were there), the fun part was the pre-party in my hotel room.

We had two fabulous hair stylists from Bumble and bumble (Joey and Travis) and two fabulous makeup artists from Trish McEvoy (Billie Jean and Tracey) come in and do our hair and makeup while we drank champagne and took in the Central Park view. I heard great stories about how certain editors got into the business. (Yes, it is like The Devil Wears Prada, one was an Executive Assistant for two years before getting the opportunity to write.) And we all felt like we were at prom again, getting into our formal dresses after we were "professionally perfected."

There is nothing like sitting back and having your hair and makeup done by the best in the business. I could get used to this...
