An odd trend has sprung up among celebrities of late that was probably a long time coming. The ubiquity and near universal acceptance of using hair extensions to change up your look from one day to the next seems to have cleared the way for a resurgence of wigs, worn both to conceal and enhance identity. We sort of hope it catches on so we can live out our Stockard Channing-in-Grease fantasies without ever having to chop off our long locks. You?
“There are very few businesses that’ve been around this long,” Kiehl’s president Chris Salgardo said last night as he celebrated the apothecary’s 158 years in the beauty biz with new renovations to the flagship store and a host of celebrities in tow. “It’s been about three years in the making,” he said of the East Village mainstay’s refurbishing, which includes new fixtures, an updated layout, and the addition of a gifting station equipped with a collection of products exclusive to the store, like the limited edition lip balm cap (above), designed by New York Adorned. Toasting the company’s increased success worldwide and its continued dedication to the downtown community were Natasha Leone, Kim Kardashian, Amber Tamblyn, and Chloë Sevigny, the latter of whom will forever reign supreme over all that lies below 14th Street. “I’ve been using their products since ’93,” the actress surmised as she rattled off a list of her favorites, including the brand’s line-reducing serum, under-eye concentrate, lavender bubble bath, and Creme de Corps. When it comes to makeup, though, it’s all about Yves Saint Laurent, whose matte pink lipstick Sevigny broke out for the soirée. “It’s great because you don’t need a compact with it,” she said, pointing to the gold rectangular tube’s reflective surface. And then it dawned on us: a Kiehl’s color collection, by Chloë Sevigny. It’d be a great way to usher in the company’s 160th birthday, no?
