Designer Cynthia Rowley has been charming the fashion community with her signature brand of offbeat feminine clothing since 1988. After her first collection was purchased while she was still a student at the Art Institute of Chicago, Rowley moved to New York and officially entered the biz she is still a crucial part of today. Along the way she has amassed accolades aplenty (a CFDA Perry Ellis Award for new fashion talent in 1994, a Legend of Fashion award from her alma mater this year) and successfully extended her creative reach far beyond clothes. Her eponymous line now includes menswear, accessories, and fragrance, and she was a pioneer in the collaboration department—she launched her Swell line of home goods with Target way back in 2003 and is responsible for the first set of designer Band-Aid bandages, not to mention a pretty adorable Tweezerman motif. More recently, though, Rowley—an avowed art lover—co-founded Exhibition A, an innovative retail Web site that makes owning a work of art an attainable reality for the masses. In anticipation of her presentation on Thursday September 13, we asked the longtime New Yorker to share some of her health and beauty musts in the city that never sleeps, even though her routine is decidedly low-maintenance. According to the designer, “I barely ever have time for anything except a pedi!”

After releasing her own self-tanner, then getting accused of stealing the formula of said self-tanner from another tanning expert, Lindsay Lohan has some new faux-glow problems. The actress reportedly owes $41,031 in back fees to Tanning Vegas, a Nevada salon she frequented between 2007 and 2009. That is a lot of fake baking. [Daily News]

Clairol has named Giada De Laurentiis the new face of its Natural Instincts hair color line. The Food Network star might seem like an unlikely choice, but if her mass appeal is anywhere as addicting as her cooking show, Everyday Italian, it just might be a good fit. [People]

Giorgio Armani is immortalizing his Saharan nights, all-blue Spring collection with a new fragrance, fittingly called La Femme Bleue.

Marie Robinson has pretty much cemented her position as one of the city’s top colorists. She got her start as an apprentice at Pierre Michel at the age of 19 and put in stints at Danilo, John Frieda (where she became famously adept at balayage highlighting), and Bumble and Bumble, before spending seven years as the head colorist at Sally Hershberger Downtown. Last spring, Robinson sent shockwaves through the beauty community when she abandoned the queen of the $800 cut to open her own eponymous salon with a chunk of the staff following suit. Besides having her own fancy new Fifth Avenue flagship, Robinson also has an impressive celebrity client roster (Liv Tyler, Natalie Portman, Rachel McAdams, and Anne Hathaway all trust their tresses to Robinson, and Kristen Stewart went strawberry blond at her suggestion this summer). She also recently added an enviable title to her CV: color director for Clairol (that’s her in the brand’s latest round of TV ads). Despite these achievements, Robinson remains refreshingly (make that shockingly) down-to-earth, which, along with those legendary highlighting abilities, makes her very easy to love. Here, she divulges who cuts and colors her own platinum blond crop, along with her favorite beauty destinations and must-haves.
