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.

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.

"I couldn't see what my hair looked like, what my clothes looked like. It was so liberating."You have to go pretty far into the wilds to get away from one of the most famous faces in the world, even when you own that face.

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.

LOS ANGELES -- There is a studio in the heart of seedy, old Hollywood near Sunset and Vine that they call "The Factory." From the outside it looks like two adjoining, pock-marked, abandoned buildings behind a weedy lot. 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.

A gala of gore attracted a human figure adorned with sharp plastic claws and accompanied by a little fake blood cocktail sauce. Baltimore's Zombie Gras is that kind of event. The fourth annual celebration of creative decomposition and masterful makeup drew hundreds of aficionados Saturday to Geppi's Entertainment Museum. The blood was all fake, and those who spent hours applying it were more than willing to discuss their approach to graveyard glamour in the setting of classic movie posters and treasures of the golden age of horror, imagination and adventure.
