The Stars Come Out at Tela
Philip Pelusi hosted the red-carpet premiere of Vivienne Mackinder's latest film, Discover Your Passion, at his Manhattan salon, Tela, on the eve of IBS New York in April.

Future Vision Rocks IBS New York
Wella's over-the-top road show, Future Vision 08, was the icing on the cake at IBS New York in April. The event, which has been touring the country this year, was held on opening night and featured some of the industry's most exciting platform artists, including Sonya and Christopher Dove, Nick Arrojo and the Sassoon Academy. Original "Dreamgirl" Jennifer Holliday kicked things off with a knock-out performance, but there was more to come as American Idol finalist Kimberley Locke took the stage at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. Wella claimed that the show would change your vision forever, and it made good on its promise. —M.D.
