KIEHL'S 160th Aniversary Celebration
Other Details: Kiehl's not only makes the best skin products, their parties are always a good time. Always. Last night's party, celebrating their 160th birthday was packed. Not only were the usual suspects there, but so was a Jonas Brother! Kevin (who for those of you not up on your Tiger Beat reading is the least attractive one who is married and gets to have purity ring-less s-e-x) must be a big fan of the products, because there is no other explanation. Always good to see people come out because they really like something. The gift bags were stuffed full and well worth it! [Via]
