Remember how, during Katrina, Condoleezza Rice got all that flack for shoe-shopping at Ferragamo in New York? It seems like whenever Girlfriend puts in a little me-time in the city, mayhem coincides. Last Friday, Condi took a break from all the U.N. hoo-ha for a blowout at the Upper West Side’s exclusive Royal Mountain salon. (That do doesn’t style itself, you know.)

Now, now. We meant the robber. [West Side Spirit]
