Is Alexander Wang the next Gwyneth Paltrow?

The fashion designer beloved by models and other cool leather-clad people admitted during a talk at the 92nd Street Y last week that he puts a lot of questionable substances on his skin.

“I’m a diva when it comes to skin care,” he said. “I use a lot of placenta and a lot of stuff that smells like it shouldn’t be put on your face. Things that really burn your face. Things that make your face really red, but then you wake up the next morning and you’re like, ‘Okay, I look amazing.’ ” Ew.

He went on to chat about how he avoids a hangover, which essentially involves willing himself not to have one. “If you think, ‘I’m going to drink tonight, I’m going to make it tomorrow, I’m going to suck it in’ [you’ll be okay],” he said (though he also admitted he thinks he may have just experienced a hangover last weekend at Halloween. The candy will do that to you!).

Hangover prayers and placenta skincare? Wang clearly needs his own Goop column. [Vogue]
