A chic flat shoe can be hard to find. So that it happens to be the hero product of L.A.-based designer Jenni Kayne’s eponymous line should come as no surprise. We speak specifically of her D’Orsay flat. Perfectly cut for ultimate foot flattery, highly wearable, and available in a veritable Crayola box of colors, they have graced the feet of many a style-setter, both famous and not. Besides dreaming up a pair of flats par excellence, Kayne, who launched her brand while still a teenager, is known for dealing in clothes with a simple but sophisticated appeal—modern easy-wear, if you will. She has also recently turned her attention to the wide world of personal blogs with the launch of Rip + Tan, a very Goop-esque lifestyle site named after her kids, Ripley and Tanner, with everything from recipes to product finds. This year marks Jenni Kayne’s (the brand, that is) tenth birthday, a perfect time, we think, to check in with her and get the scoop on some of her own beauty favorites.
THE REGULAR POLISH SPOT: Jessica’s Nails
“My best friend, Nicole Simone, turned me on to Jessica’s just over eight years ago, and I go religiously every week. It’s totally old-school. They have amazing nail polishes, and the manicures are the best. It has become such a part of my routine that I don’t feel like I can breathe if I skip a week.”

THE ACUPUNCTURIST: Tao of Wellness
“I go once a week for acupuncture, to try to stay balanced and have a relaxing hour to myself. It keeps me healthy and sane. I drink their Chinese herbs daily—they keep me from getting sick and definitely shorten colds when I get them.”

THE FACIALIST: Terri Lawton
“Terri is the best. I always leave glowing, balanced, and relaxed. I try to go once every two months. She also makes amazing products—I use her Stem Cell Moisturizer daily.”

That Diptyque is fashion’s favorite home fragrance house is fairly well documented; take a peek through any “insider’s picks” story in any number of glossies and one of its scented votives reliably makes the cut. But the Boulevard Saint-Germain-based brand is making the relationship official this season by “scenting” a number of designers’ shows. The intoxicating, sweet aroma in the lobby at the New York Public Library yesterday at Victoria Beckham’s presentation came courtesy of 60 Diptyque candles in Figuier; Rachel Zoe chose five of the rose and black current-tinged Baies; Wes Gordon blended two of its woodsy Feu de Bois with two of the resinous Opopanax; while Jenni Kayne opted for a trio of Feu de Bois, Opopanax, and the warm and sensual Santal. Diptyque’s when-fragrance-met-fashion experiment won’t end in New York, either. Style.com has learned that wafts of its classic Roses and Figuiers luminaries will mingle as editors peruse Equipment’s new collection at Le Crillon in Paris come March.
