People. Places. Things.

Great style is about looking good from head to toe. Here’s a list of some of my favorite people, places, and things.

Great Hair


BRADLEY CRANE is a virtuoso with the scissors, truly. I wouldn’t trust anyone else, and haven’t, for a dozen years. I always leave Bradley’s chair feeling my cut looks modern, sophisticated, and easy to maintain. To read about Bradley, or make an appointment, visit

RITA LEANIO is a hair colorist extraordinaire. Since my first visit more than a decade ago, I’ve been thrilled with the look of my color. Rita is incredibly knowledgeable about color and always considers your lifestyle, maintenance, and personal needs when designing a color plan.

Great Nails


THAO PHAN gives the best manicures and pedicures in the City, hands down. Even better, she’ll come right to your home to do it if you come by way of referral. How wonderful is that? Thao specializes in traditional European manicures and pedicures, with all the luxuries you would expect from an in-spa treatment – a warm soak, nail maintenance, exfoliation, massage, and impeccably applied color that really lasts. To book an appointment, contact Thao at (415) 756-6190 or send her an e-mail at


Great Skin


MAHROO at Spa Radiance is my favorite facialist. Most people mistake me for a much younger woman, and I owe a large part of that to Mahroo. She knows how to diagnose exactly what your skin needs, and tailors a facial treatment specifically for you. She will advise you about skincare products and the best way to take care of your particular skin needs. And, best of all, she’s an absolute delight to work with. To book an appointment with Mahroo, visit the Spa Radiance Website at or call (415) 346-6281.


Great Makeup


Does your makeup wardrobe need an update too? KIM JOHNSON at Chanel Cosmetics in Neiman Marcus is my go-to makeup artist. Kim will do for your makeup what I do for your wardrobe — assess, edit, discuss lifestyle and time constraints, then design a ‘makeup wardrobe’ specifically tailored to your needs. She’s is one of the best in the business. And I say that with confidence, I’ve worked with her for over 20 years. To book an appointment, call or text Kim directly at (415) 203-1643.

Big night out? Wedding? Hot date? Sisters PAVLA + PETRA LANGER of FaceWest will do you right. These makeup mavens of The Marina designed a unique space for makeup application that focuses on quality, ease, and luxury without the pressure to buy products.

Proper care will extend the life of your favorite pieces. Here are my top recommendations.

  • Evercare Fabric Shaver or Gleener Fuzz Remover for de-piling your cashmere and woolen knits.
