Dylan Lauren Unwraps Her Sweet Side at Book Launch Bash



    Candy queen Dylan Lauren welcomed throngs of guest to her spiffy Upper East Side store, Dylan’s Candy Bar, for the launch of her new book, “Dylan's Candy Bar: Unwrap Your Sweet Life” last night.

    The author and mogul caught up with alice+olivia designer Stacey Bendet-Eisner -- who had a sweet surprise of her own! Not only is it the fashionista's birthday today, but she confessed to Niteside last night that she's pregnant with her second baby. And a baby bump is of course going to influence her Halloween costume this year.

    “I’m thinking of going as a pregnant prom queen … or maybe a sort of gothic bride, where I would tar a wedding dress and paint my face white?” she said.

    But bringing it back to candy, the designer told us, “One year my best friend my sister and I all went as M&Ms. … That was so fun!” But there are other perks to being pregnant than having a Halloween costume in the bag.

    “It’s amazing how much money you’re saving when you’re not buying coffee or alcohol,” she told us. Which means there’s more to splurge on fun, festive sweets for this year’s trick-o-treaters.
