CAPITAL SHOPPING: Neiman Marcus and the St. Regis Washington hotel are teaming up to offer a makeover for inauguration attendees who will likely brave wintry conditions and an expected crowd of millions to celebrate the swearing in of President-elect Barack Obama next month. Neiman’s will create an in-lobby boutique at the St. Regis, complete with an “Eye Bar” offering makeup services and a Manolo Blahnik shoeshine and bow-tieing service. It will be open to the public Jan. 16 to 21. The landmark Washington hotel, which recently underwent a 16-month renovation, including the addition of Alain Ducasse’s Adour restaurant, is located two blocks from the White House. Those looking for last-minute inaugural party items can choose from an array of products in the Neiman’s boutique, including brands such as Yves Saint Laurent Beauté, Loro Piana, Judith Leiber, Brioni and Ermengildo Zegna. Neiman’s consultants will also be on hand for any “fashion emergencies” and will coordinate a courier between the Neiman’s store in Mazza Gallerie mall and the hotel boutique for last-minute alterations and purchases.
