As chief executive officer of Shiseido Cosmetics America, Heidi Manheimer maintains a jam-packed schedule. So whether she’s pounding the pavement at home in New York or traveling the world for pleasure, Manheimer has become expert at sourcing the best of everything. Here, a roundup of some favorites.
Airline: British Airways. Being married to a Brit, I’ve been converted to BA. Their service surpasses anything you will find on any domestic airline.
Business Travel City: Tokyo, Japan: Wherever you go—store, restaurant, museum—you get to experience amazing service that is highly attentive and very gracious. The city is also incredibly inspiring and energizing, with new trends emerging daily. Restaurant for Business Lunch: Core Club. The food is always good, plus it’s near the office, which helps on rainy days. 66 East 55th Street; 212-650-9442 Restaurant for Celebrations: Picholine. A great combination—ambience plus non- fussy French food. 35 West 64th Street; 212-724-8585
Diner: SouthamptonPrincessDiner. My order is pretty consistent—an egg white omelet or an Asian chicken salad. 32 Montauk Highway, Southampton, NY; 631-283-4255 Car Service: Valera Global. 718-786-2222
Dry Cleaner: Savitt Cleaners. Great personal service. 1524 First Avenue; 212-744-4364 HEALTH & BEAUTY
Hair: SeanChin-SueatPierreMichel (cuts). 135 East 57th Street, 3rd floor; 212-755-9500
Cindy Hanna for blow-drys (where you will surely run into many beauty executives before 8 a.m.). 111 East 56th Street; 347-224-4157
Manicurist: Maria Chiriencu at Paul Labrecque. She’s as nice as she is talented. 171 East 65th Street; 212-988-7816 Makeup Artist: LindaIdehenre. Clé de Peau makeup artist at Saks Fifth Avenue. 611 Fifth Avenue; 212-940-2170
Dermatologist: Dr. Linda Franks. A very skilled doctor with a warm and engaging bedside manner. 60 Gramercy Park; 212-475-2312
Trainer: Josh Holland at Core Club. Great energy, which helps for those early morning workouts. (Rumor has it he has trained some pretty high-profile celebs.) PLEASURE App: Scrabble for iPad. Highly addictive.
Champagne: Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut.
Chocolatier: Li-Lac Chocolates. Beautiful and delicious handmade chocolates. The chocolate-dipped fruit makes a great hostess gift. 40 Eighth Avenue; 212-924-2280
Clothing Store/Business: I shop many department and specialty stores, but the Derek Lam Boutique on Madison Avenue is my new favorite. 764 Madison Avenue; 212-493-4454
Clothing Store/Weekend: Having spent so many years at Barneys and Bloomingdale’s, I still enjoy shopping those stores since I know them so well. Bloomingdale’s:1000 Third Avenue; 212-705-2000 Barneys New York: 660 Madison Avenue, 212-826-8900
Shoes: Christian Louboutin. Great quality shoes that are really comfortable (assuming you don’t buy the four-inch heels). 59 Horatio Street; 212-255-1919
Vacation Spot: I love to travel, so it’s hard to narrow it down. My last trip was to Buenos Aires and Mendoza in Argentina, so for the moment, those are my favorite spots.

For @laperlalingerie's spring 2018 show, the brand chose to host their event at @thevenetianmacao. With Chinese megastars @bingbing_fan and @hubing in attendance, La Perla debuted a rock ‘n’ roll-inspired collection. The show marked the start of Sands Macao Fashion Week, which runs from October 19 to 24 — the city’s first such event. Pictured here are models backstage with glimmering eyes. #wwdfashion (📷: Cheuk-Yin To)
Trending for spring 2018: top stitch design. Gone are the days of stitch just for seams — designers are using the once-minimal detail to create strong decorative elements. (📷: Paola Testa; Styled by @andrew_shang) #wwdfashion

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
