When The Plaza converted from a luxury hotel into luxury apartments, it made sure to keep a space open for its most famous resident, and we don't mean Tommy Hilfiger. Eloise, the star of Kay Thompson's famous books with Hilary Knight, has a 2,100-square-foot store that's outfitted in black and white and a million shades of pink an stocked with all kinds of Eloise memorabilia. There is a living room, a library with books and DVDs, and a "fashion room" where visitors can try on costumes. (We have a crushing suspicion they won't be in our size). In the spring, an Eloise beauty salon will open and the store will have Eloise etiquette classes.
