DEX New York wants to do it all, or as much as possible. Founded by former stylist Dexter Phillip, it is a mineral-based, camera-ready makeup line. And hair salon. And photography studio. And casting studio. And fashion showplace. And meeting space. And all at the tender age of 2.

And naturally, Dex ( wants to be a destination, which is why Tuesday evening (9 June) some 50 or so fabulous folks were enticed to the chic, sleek fashion district address by the promise of getting “The New You.” The New could be achieved through a complImentary makeup application from the all-hue inclusive Dex line, carrying names like Sutton Place, Harlem Nights, Hell’s Kitchen and Rockefeller Center. What else is New is a little facial juvenation as put forward by plastic surgeon Neil Gordon. The good doctor (one hopes!) put on quite the show of plastic surgery over the top. Included in the Hallway: Joan Rivers, Kenny Rogers, Burt Reynolds, Liza Minnelli, The Cat Lady and The King (you know the one).

Me? I say pass on the nose job or brow lift – at least as long as you can – and instead get your hair and makeup done. Or just get a room.
