Classic Hollywood, a la Edith Head and Lancôme!Wednesday, November 12, 2008
Chances are that even if you've never heard of Edith Head you've seen her work and admired her style. She's the designer behind the Hollywood Glamour of stars such as Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor. She dressed them on and off the screen, often creating her own designs when what she wanted was not available.
In 1959 Edith published both a memoir and a small guide to style, The Dress Doctor. That book has just been republished this fall, complete with little sketches of Edith's designs and stories of the stars! Long out of print, this book had to be found in a used book shop or on eBay (where it usually goes for $60-$75).
Lancôme has decided to celebrate The Dress Doctor's re-release with special makeover appointments!
Yes, the appointment will cost you a $75 "reservation fee". This is what you will get for the $75:
• A Hollywood inspired makeover (really the main event!)
• Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres
• The $75 is applicable toward products! So, even if you just use the $75 to get yourself eye makeup remover and lip gloss, this sounds like a pretty good deal!
If you spend $100 then you'll also get your own copy of The Dress Doctor to take home!
