Socialites Lunch at Carlyle to Celebrate Pomegranate Skin Cream!

At the Carlyle Hotel on Monday, ubiquitous New York socialites Marjorie Gubelmann, Jennifer Creel and Byrdie Bell celebrated the launch of Rodial’s Glamatox—a skin cream that calls itself “the glamorous alternative to Botox.” (Katie Holmes, Gisele Bundchen and Uma Thurman have all succumbed to the charms of Rodial skincare products, which use “Pomegranate Ellagic Tannin, with its natural anti-ageing, firming and collagen-boosting properties” to get results.)

As the product was passed around the luncheon table, reports WWD, Ms. Creel asked the owner of Rodial, Maria Hatzistefanis, if she is Greek. “That must be why you have such amazing skin,” she said to the dermatological entrepreneur. “No, no no! It’s the Glamatox,” Ms. Hatzistefanis shot back. Apparently none of the well-heeled ladies-who-lunch would disclose their anti-ageing routines, but Ms. Creel did suggest that her few facial lines are the result of being “embarrassingly behind on my Christmas cards!”
