Apparently, hairstylists in the White House are nothing new, but makeup artists make headlines: This weekend the New York Post ran a story titled, "Full-Time Makeup Artist for Michelle" that claimed, "Michelle Obama is the nation's first First Lady to add a full-time makeup artist to her traveling entourage, according to stylists who have worked with presidential wives over the past 16 years. Makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, helped create Obama's signature look on her inaugural trip to Europe last week. Grimes-Miles, who has been working with the first lady for six years, now splits her time between DC and Chicago, where she dolls up morning-news anchors for WGN TV." Hmm... I do wonder if Grimes-Miles may have simply been hired for the big trip, where Mrs. Obama was photographed relentlessly. Either way, I'm almost surprised that there isn't a full-time makeup artist in place at all times already.
