Glamour on the Go
When Lauren Remington Platt stopped by the Style.com offices to update me on Vênsette—a website that offers door-to-door hair and makeup services in 90 minutes or less by pros Platt screens herself—I wish she had brought along a member of her team. With two evening events on my plate and zero time, my game plan was to run a brush through my hair, apply lipstick in the cab, and call it a night out. So goes my typical routine—and that of millions of other women in New York. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that her business has taken off—an app is in the works and the principal engineer of Gilt Groupe was recently brought on board to completely redesign the site. And starting Monday, you’ll find photo diaries from some of the brand’s high-profile clients (including Harley Viera Newton, Linda Fargo, Carolyn Murphy, Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs of Cushnie Et Ochs, among others) that document them getting ready for the slew of seasonal parties that fill their iCals this time of year. Whether you’re seeking inspiration to DIY your own holiday look (or need to find a reason to hire someone to create it for you), Vênsette provides.
