We had a long chat with newly named SK-II face Kate Bosworth about her skincare-and-makeup regimen earlier this year, but here’s something we didn’t know about the Big Sur star: Bosworth apparently treats her hands to the same routine as her face. “I use the SK-II Essence on my hands. My mother always told me you can tell a woman’s true age by the back of her hands,” she says. [Allure]
What would you do if you were an Oscar-nominated actress and you saw a huge billboard of yourself in an ad for the fragrance you promote? If the answer is take an Instagram of yourself in front of it, then you and Jessica Chastain are not all that dissimilar. Stars: They’re just like us! [HuffPo Canada]
Turns out, Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t always on the sugar-, gluten-, carb-free plan that currently stars in her new cookbook, It’s All Good. While promoting Country Strong a few years ago, she was on a steady diet of Guinness, beta-blockers, sleeping pills, and wine, which is what ultimately compelled her to make some changes. [Us]

They’re certainly not the first magazine to do a makeup-free story, but W‘s new issue may do it best. The glossy got Kristen Stewart, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Naomi Watts, Jessica Chastain, and Keira Knightley to go maquillage-free—and guess what? Even with under-eye circles and skin imperfections, they’re all still pretty much drop-dead gorgeous. [Hollywood Life]

Speaking of surprising new scent categories, Stella McCartney would like to bottle the olfactory qualities of a barnyard. The designer, who clearly loves the smell of lily of the valley, which is the top note of her L.I.L.Y scent and its new Absolute, lists her other favorite aromas as the scent of her children’s breath and horses. “My friend and I always joke that one day we’ll launch a horse fragrance—obviously, we’d be the only ones who would buy it,” says McCartney. We’re not so sure about that; brand loyalty can be a funny thing. [InStyle U.K.]
Since taking Hollywood by storm last year with starring roles in movies like The Tree of Life, The Debt, and The Help, Jessica Chastain has skyrocketed to the top of the list of actors directors want to work with (and designers want to dress). She’s showing no sign of slowing down, either. The newly named YSL fragrance face has already garnered rave reviews for this year’s Lawless, and even more praise for her work on Broadway in The Heiress. Next up for the flame-haired starlet is Zero Dark Thirty, a rumored Oscar contender, which hits theaters this month. Chastain began the film’s press tour today with a photo call in New York, for which she successfully mixed a multitude of fuchsia shades with those ginger strands—no small feat. Sporting a floral-print sleeveless dress, Chastain wore a matte dark rose lip complemented by a slight apricot flush and an extra-fine line of liquid black liner drawn close to her upper lash line. It was perfection as usual, don’t you think?
There are a lot of reasons to like Jessica Chastain. First and foremost there are her serious acting chops, which have already earned her an Oscar nod and many a role alongside such bold-faced names as Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, and Sean Penn. Then, of course, there’s her sparkling personality: Chastain is smart—and incredibly easy to talk to, which is always a bonus if and when you should find yourself on the party reporting circuit. But we’re mostly drawn to her impressive eye for beauty; the upcoming star of Nick Benson’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His has that whole classic Hollywood glamour thing down. It’s rare to find her making a misstep on the red carpet, and last night’s The Heiress opening on Broadway was no exception, as the YSL fragrance face turned up with a Veronica Lake-caliber side-sweep, perfectly painted red lips, a precise black cat-eye and lots of lashes. This, ladies, is how keeping it classy is done. Thoughts on Chastain’s latest hair and makeup clinic?
