Exclusive Interview: Bethenny Frankel Talks Fashion & Beauty Post Baby

This year during New York Fashion Week I stopped by the Robert Verdi Luxe Laboratory on the last day.  I normally always go earlier in the week, but I was so swamped this year, I had to wait and I'm glad I did.  As I was finishing getting my hair styled by Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas in his suite, none other than Bethenny Frankel walked in to have her makeup touched up by Stila. First of all I have to say, I've always been a Bethenny fan, but after meeting her I'm team Bethenny even more now. Much prettier in person, I can't believe the woman had a baby in May.  Wearing a sophisticated navy structured dress and grey pumps she came in with her hair blown out (like every day) and no makeup on.  After leaving the Robert Verdi Suite she was going directly to do a taping for Rachel Ray.

Since becoming a mom has anything about your style changed?

I think twice about wearing promiscuous clothing.  If I think it may be too short, it is. When in doubt, I don't wear it anymore.  I keep things simple, dress in color and wear good accessories.

What's your go-to accessory?

My wedding ring.  When I'm not sure what to wear I always stick with my solitaire diamond necklace.

Has your beauty regimen changed since you had Bryn?

Not really.  With me, it's all or nothing.

Did you learn a lot about pregnancy and parenting from your friends?

I really didn't take any unsolicited advice.  People freak you out.  Chances are none of those crazy things will happen to you.  I learned as I went and things are great.

What's do you carry in your purse at all times?

Lotion.  My skin is very dry and baby wipes.

What's your guiltiest pleasure?

I don't believe in guilt.
