GLAMTASTIC VOYAGE

Where else would society-beauty-cum-accessories-designer Tinsley Mortimer give me a sneak peek at her new Dior Jetsetter Palette but on a private jet en route to the Hamptons? St. Moritz, London, Paris, Vienna, Venice, and Tokyo are just some of the destinations where the globe-trotting Mortimer and her clan have spent recent months.

With an assist from Habitat for Humanity, he envisions "a village built by hairdressers" in Louisiana's St. Tammany Parish.
