I hate to hate anything even remotely associated with the goddess Cate Blanchett, but this shiny, stiff-looking Armani Privé dress is testing the limits of her sartorial perfection. It’s like what an off-duty superhero would wear to a red carpet event, all latex-y and, like, “Hey, I may or may not be fighting crime and defending the city after dinner.” So it’s badass, of course, but is it cute? Do we like it? Does Cate get a free pass, just because she’s Cate? Probably.

What do you think of Cate's shiny dress?

5 Oils You Should Be Putting On Your Face Right Now

If you’ve never used an oil on your face, you’re missing out. Really. It sounds terrifying, especially for the oily-skinned, but newsflash: oily-skinned people benefit the most from the use of oil-based moisturizers and cleansers. I am telling you this based on personal experience. Every time I go to my dermatologist, a very intelligent, clinical fellow in his sixties (he’s pretty handsome, too, whatever), he tells me to use oil-free products… but I’ve never had less acne or other concerns than when I use oil exclusively on my face. (And trust me, I’ve used the dermatologist-recommended Cetaphil and CeraVe moisturizer to horrific results.) But it’s not just me; it’s sort of like a relatively new development in beauty and skincare, and it is awesome. There’s no way to describe the transformative powers of oil for moisturizing, repairing, cleansing, and purifying until you actually use them. So do it! Just don’t tell Dr. Luck. Here are a few of my favorites…

Asleep At The Chateau Shows A Sleepier Side Of The Chateau Marmont

"Chateau Marmont"?
There was once rumored to be a TV show in the works. Read More »

Long before Lindsay took up unauthorized residence, the Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard played host and home to a multitude of eminent eccentrics and bold-faced names (F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marilyn Monroe, Dennis Hopper, Jim Morrison, Hunter S. Thompson, Heath Ledger, Led Zeppelin, Britney Spears, Howard Hughes, and beyond) who all had one thing in common: they loved to party, and hard. In fact, the founder of Columbia Pictures once said, “If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont.” It’s no wonder, then, that when we think of the infamous hotel, the last thing that comes to mind is sleep. (Well, unless it’s forever sleep, as in the tragic case of John Belushi, who met his untimely end in the Chateau’s Bungalow #3.) Fashion photographer Jork Weismann’s new portrait book, aptly titled “Asleep at the Chateau,” pays quiet homage to that legendary place of celebrity refuge and relapse by showing a number of familiar faces in repose within its walls. Among them are Bret Easton Ellis, Orlando Bloom, Juergen Teller, Usher, Eva Longoria, and Patti Smith (shown). Check out a couple more after the jump, and pick up Asleep at the Chateau via Artbook.

Our Favorite Beauty Looks From The SAG Awards (And How To Get Them)

I am a happy spectator of any and all awards shows for what is likely the same reason that most people are: I love nothing more than to turn on my TV, eat a ton of bread, and watch the most beautiful people in the world prance around in designer dresses and the kind of makeup I could only dream of applying. Be still my heart! There were quite a few beauty highlights from the Screen Actors Guild Awards this weekend: here’s just a few, and how to get them…

"On The Road" (NSFW)
K-Stew is topless, giving a double handjob in "On The Road." Watch »

Kate Bosworth showed up at Sundance to promote her starring role in the new film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s autobiographical novel Big Sur, directed by her fiancé Michael Polish. They certainly chose an odd time to release a Kerouac movie, what with that other one coming out and all. I’m curious to see if Polish’s version features any topless double handjobs. Anyway, Kate wore this leathery retro go-go getup to the premiere. The lady looks good in pretty much everything, and while this outfit is definitely very adventurous, I think it’s slightly too literal to be a hit. It could’ve used some contemporary updates to bring it back down to earth circa 2013. What say you?

What do you think of Kate's retro look?

Regular Dresses Too Regular? Try Some Hairy Ones Instead

Fingernails Instead Of Hair
This woman has a rare disease which makes her grow fingernails everywhere. Watch »

When we talk about the hair at fashion shows, we generally mean the hair on the models, not the hair on the clothes. Charlie Le Mindu certainly didn’t have convention in mind when he presented Metal Queen, his “haute coiffeur” collection, on the runway in Paris during Couture Week. “I wanted to do a collection that was inspired by the women who scare me and have a lot of charisma. So that’s why the models look like kind of sexy monsters — I want them to scare men,” said Le Mindu of his line, which features, yes, human hair (culled from extensions, no scalping necessary) protruding from the designs in every which way. Sure, why not? I mean, don’t you ever wake up in the morning and say to yourself, What I really need in my wardrobe is more human hair? [WWD]
