Gwyneth Paltrow swears off this beauty treatment
Actress says it made her look like Joan Rivers.
by Amy Wicks
Gwyneth Paltrow has been in a sharing mood lately. She's talked about her recent change in diet due to anemia and how it affected her marriage. She's talked about opening a blow-dry bar with her trainer and her new book, "It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes that Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great."

Now she's tackling a topic that most actresses are afraid to admit to: Botox. Paltrow has been looking better than ever these days, but she said it's not due to Botox. At least, not anymore. "I've probably tried everything," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I'm 50. I'll try anything. Except I won't do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers."

At the moment, she's taking on a less hard-core skin routine. "I really used to be bad with products, but now I exfoliate every night and use a lot of organic oils on my face," she said. (She's a Sonya Dakar fan.) "And I have a great dermatologist in LA who gave me this amazing laser the last time I was there. It's called Thermage. It's not invasive. I went out to dinner right afterward and I didn't look crazy, but it's quite painful. It feels like someone's smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it. But I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face."

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
