The stranger at the restaurant did not know the woman at the next table ran a cosmetics company or owned a Chanel suit. He didn't even know she was the highest paid model in the world in 1966, moved in the same circles as Lauren Hutton and appeared everywhere from Modern Bride to Vogue. But when he overheard her say she would be turning 60 in November, he strolled over and said, "Sixty. I don't believe it." "Please, honey, I'm 60 years old and every minute of it," the woman says, laughing.

And, most unusual of all, no Cindy Crawford anywhere in sight."There were no mirrors where I was staying, except for this little compact I had," Crawford says.

Joanna Bonicker is a self-described fragrance fanatic who's constantly researching new products on the Internet and sniffing testers at department-store counters. So, when she grew curious about French perfume company Comptoir Sud Pacifique a few months ago, she felt she had two choices: Risk annoying her husband by shelling out $79 for a new eau de toilette or log onto makeupalley.com's makeup-swapping site. Bonicker chose the latter, arranging to trade a half-full bottle of J'Adore perfume by Christian Dior for a similarly used Comptoir Sud Pacifique spray with a woman in New York she had never met. "My husband thinks I'm crazy," said Bonicker, 29, a Baltimore waitress who has more than 40 bottles of perfume and scented body lotion thanks to her swaps.

NEW YORK - It's mid-afternoon on a recent Saturday and designer Tess Giberson is hunched over a sewing machine in the Barneys women's department, her face scrunched up as she focuses on stitching flowers onto T-shirts and blouses. For six hours, Giberson sews furiously, custom-decorating dozens of shirts as well-heeled customers wait. Her reasons for doing so aren't to push her line of clothing, which Barneys carries. In fact, the T-shirts she is adding her flowery flourishes to aren't even her own. Instead, Giberson's time and effort and proceeds from the $50 custom fee are going to Women at Risk, a breast cancer charity that the budding New York designer chose.

But inside, there are makeup rooms, dressing rooms, sleek conference rooms, photography studios and soundstages. It is a full-service publicity studio, and the product made on its assembly line is image -- as in, "Image is everything." Its special brand: African-American television images.

After several seasons of barely-there makeup and the naked face, color is making a strong comeback.And that doesn't mean caking it on. While spring's palette yields stronger tones, the true inspiration comes from pale shades of the ecology. Coral, peach, banana, powdery pink and even soft blue lend a rich, natural look to the face.The fresh approach comes just in time. With all the rage in '60s fashion, cosmetics companies have developed color lines that are more complementary. The heavy liquid eyeliner, clunky false eyelashes and the chalky pale lips that made up last season's face are giving way to a softer look.
