“Just Try it On” book launch at Bendel’s

By Andrea Thatcher on January 16th, 2008


A launch party in NYC should have four things: cocktails, cupcakes, at least one person sporting a Rihanna/Katie Holmes bob and a D-list celeb. Last night, this and more all went down at the “Gossip Girl”-like department store Henri Bendel for fashion writer Susan Redstone’s new style book, “Just Try it On!”

Redstone’s adorable 12-month guide gives smart and affordable shopping and fashion tips. Each chapter is dedicated to a different tip and month, from January’s “Your Fashion Emergency Kit” to December’s “Holiday Style and Gift Giving.”

When asked to spill a tip, Redstone picked from November and said, “avoid visible panty lines by taking Polaroids of yourself before a big red carpet event.”

Put on by PR powerhouse Lizzie Grubman, the event was well attended including Lizzie herself, along with one sure shocker (but appropriately titled for the event) from VH1’s “I Love New York,” Tailor Made.

Gossip Girls love Henri Bendel

It looks like all the shopping at Bendel’s and name dropping of Henri himself are really just a coincidence on Gossip Girl. Though that may change since the store’s Web site and consumer hotline have both seen increased traffic after airings of the fashionable teen drama. Shoppers seem eager to find out if the scenes from the show were really filmed in store (they were) and to get their hands on fashions inspired by their favorite characters. They might even catch a glimpse of Serena or Jenny since the actresses who play them, Blake Lively and Taylor Momsen have been known to shop the store.
