Images by Kate Seward at our BFF The Styley
Gilt City (which became so when Gilt acquired Bergine) threw a lovely soiree yesterday at the Todd di Pietro salon in Union Square to celebrate Eva Scrivo’s new book “Eva Scrivo on Beauty,” which is, according to the book jacket, “a definitive guide to gorgeous hair, glowing skin, beautiful makeup, a healthier body, a more positive self-image, and a stronger fashon sense.” I’ve only had a chance to casually leaf through so far, but it’s all I can do right now to not become fully immersed and miss my dance class in less than an hour. I’m of course drawn to the before and afters. Who can ever resist? And there’s just so much information I feel I must learn immediately. Such as how to divorce your stylist in a guilt-free manner (p. 165), the proper way to apply concealer (p. 218, and you’d think I’d know by now, but alas), and I can’t wait to peruse the chapter on ageless makeovers.
Todd di Pietro salon, by the way, is amazing inside. It’s enormous and has giant windows with a fantastic view of Union Square. We received insightful cut advice from stylist Lauren Klein (who has amazing curls!). She suggested beachy layers for Kate, my partner in crime at The Styley, and potentially bangs (!) for moi (I’m tempted!). The charming Maclaine Defelice offered eye-opening tips on color — my ombre is looking like grown-out roots — he had some (totally welcome) thoughts!

I wonder if her book has tips on how to not pose awkwardly?
