With the Richards--Patti & Keith--on their surf and turf, August, 2016.
Since the early 1970s, Sandy Linter’s run with the cool crowd by night, and by day worked with top designers, photographers and models to create the iconic makeup looks for the covers and fashion layouts in magazines like Vogue. As you might expect, Sandy has a treasure trove of photographs. Each week she’ll share her personal scrapbook and comments on 1010 Park Place, a little something she’s calling “Sandy’s Hot Flashes.” Some of her photographs are small Polaroids from the 70s and 80s, some are from magazines and others are recent. They all give us a peek into Sandy’s extraordinary life.
Sandy Linter’s a special talent who’s funny and beautiful and an expert when it comes to makeup, especially on women over 45. She has an enduring spirit, and she knows EVERYONE.
