I have a pet peeve about how bows lie when someone doesn’t know how to tie it properly. It just looks sloppy. In some cases, that might be the look you’re going for, but I prefer a clean, crisp bow. In this video, I show you step-by -step how on Julia’s lovely top (John Galliano from Encore….my Dries Van Noten dress is from there too!)
THE PERFECT PRESENT
My Mom instilled in me that presentation is everything. Every gift she has ever given has been beautifully wrapped. People ooo and aaahh for at least a minute over the bow and wonder how on earth she could create it. The wrapping in itself is half of the gift. Now, I am passing her tricks of the trade on to you!
In this video, I show you how to properly wrap a gift and make a beautiful bow.
The key to a pretty package is having quality paper and ribbon. Paper is easier to find, but the only ribbon I use for the above bow is C&G (Pattern 800 Satin). At
Crate and Barrel The Container Store or Michael’s it will run you $10-15 a spool, online I found it for $6.
You can stop at the bow, but I like adding fresh or silk flowers to complete the look.
(Apologies for the production value. We shot this on the floor of TMI and used poor Megan as a tripod.)
ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL BOW
Bow #2 is a easier, and just as impressive to the recipient.
Wired ribbon is easier to find but a little more pricey.
Eve Pearl on The View. She wrote a book called Plastic Surgery Without The Surgery.
She shows how to apply foundation and concealer to get full coverage and make it look natural.
Fake eyelashes are also a great tip to enhance your eyes. Unfortunately, they are difficult to apply to yourself.

I tied the top two corners of the scarf around my neck and the bottom two around my waist to create a halter top.
I was scared of the curling iron so I called in an expert. Scott from Canale was sweet enough to come to the Four Seasons to help me. I will learn…
“Roll it to the center back. Don’t worry about it not being perfect. See that one, it will look cool in the end. I’m gonna fuck it up with the blowdryer and it will have that tossled beach look.”
Ty is teaching me how to use a curling iron without really using it. Don’t worry, we’re videoing this so you’ll get the tips too. I’ve NEVER had sexy hair.
