We decided to launch Planet Marie Claire after getting so many letters from readers telling us how much they love to travel and we didn't have a travel column perce and thought, this is a good way to do it. The world has become smaller and we just felt that people were traveling all over the globe and wanted to know where would you advise me to go? We started wit Mumbai with the beauty editor of Indian Marie Claire and she was terrific though it was a very personal insiders guide to Mumbai and we asked her where do, sorta the cool young woman of Mumbai hang out and where do they go shopping. So, we do a little mix. It's all on one page and it's sorta taste of a fabulous city. We're doing New York for September. Of course there are tons of great restaurants and bars in New York city but I think one of the coolest places to, you know, have a drink after work with friends is to go up to the roof of the Metropolitan museum of art and you can watch the red tail pox building their nest on the apartments along 5th avenue. It's really spectacular. My favorite thing to do in New York city is Karaoke. I want to do on Sing Sing on 8th street in the East village. In other city's, you have the old karaoke bar scenario where doing it in public and it's embarrassing but here, you can go Japanese style karaoke and get your own room with your friends, with strobe lighting and pick all the songs and it's a lot of fun. I do a lot of outdoors things. So, I also go to Brooklyn Bridge park or I'll walk around Dumbo which to non New York people stands are down under the Manhattan bride overpass which doesn't sound like very cynic but it's adorable and quaint of old New York and those cobble stone streets and it still has tracks from rail cars there and there's also a really good chocolate store on water street, nearby there that makes iced or cold hot chocolate which is delicious. In New York. My absolute favorite restaurant is a tiny little sushi place in the east village called Sharon. It's on 6th street. They have the most amazing rolls and they have a early bird special which we try to get to every Friday which is like 3 incredible rolls for $10. I love shopping around Green point. In Brooklyn actually, there are a lot of great little shops that are opening up that are unique on Franklin Avenue. And anytime you can see a show about ballroom. It's the best venue in New York City. I would tell people to probably leave Manhattan and to even explore beyond Brooklyn' cause you know, New York is a really big city and there's a lot to see. I would recommend readers visiting New York go up to the Bronx zoo and then afterwards, go over to Arthur Avenue for Italian food in the Bronx. Still maintains a lot of it's old world charm. That little Manhattan lost. I still like people to go and get a taste of old New York because people don't associate a city like New York with all it's sky scrapers and it's modern building with having a history but down town, whether it's Greenwich village or Tribeca or the Meat packing district. I still recommend to people. Avoid mid town at all cost. Lower east side, west village, you can't go wrong. My name is Susie Demac. I'm the assistant pd editor of Marie Claire. I'm doing a beauty swap with another woman. It's more of a switching beauty routines and lifestyle. So, she's high maintenance. I'm low maintenance and for the week, I'm high maintenance and she's low maintenance. Lizzy is in her early 20's. She's naturally very pretty. She has lovely blond hair. She has fantastic skin. She doesn't really need to do very much to look really pretty. We paired her with a PR person whose known for being deeply schick, very attractive, really well put together and we just thought how much effort does that take and could someone like Lizzy actually take on a routine like that. I'm not just doing what she does. I'm actually seeing her people. I'm seeing her dermatologist for the facial. Hey, you'll be a little bit red after the procedure and so we'll have you iced and that should go down by later on today. I'm seeing her hair stylist two times. How old are you? 25. Yeah. Okay. I'm 13 years older than you. Okay. So, 13 years of learning how to do make up and blah blah blah blah blah and not being able to get away with being so cute and adorable as you are. It's all about hair. It's always been about hair for woman and in fact, Jenny was saying that if, she's fine without the make up but it's the hair that's really bothering her. I have hair envy now. They have a partly, sorta fascinating time, they were both psychologically sort of torn apart by this because you get used to your routine. I'm highly aware of the way that I look and the way it comes across, being put together which is pretty cool and it's different for me 'cause I'm not girl next door'ish. It's pretty great living her life for a week. Did you know eight out of ten woman have damaged hair? Did you know new Dove can repair? The new Dove therapy system is different because it contains a precious repairing serum. It repairs damaged strand by strand and brings out the beauty in your hair, every morning. Try the precious repairing serum in the new Dove therapy system. Goodbye damage. Good morning beautiful hair. Today we are shooting our English country Carter story which is a 14 page fashion feature for our October issue. There were so many English country's by trend on a runway. Everybody covered it in some way or another.
