The designer visited the 92nd Street Y on Thursday for his Fashion Icons talk with Fern Mallis where he discussed the fashion industry and his career before veering off topic to share how he keeps his skin youthful and fresh. The details of his beauty routine are, frankly, a bit bizarre.
“I’m a diva when it comes to skin care,” Wang admitted. “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.'”
The 32-year-old does have remarkably wrinkle-free skin—still, we’re not quite sold on the whole burning redness, smelly placenta on our face thing. Then again, if anyone could turn us onto a trend, it’s Alexander Wang.
