Jason Wu with Mathilde Thomas

From presidential dresses for Michelle Obama to outfits for Reese Witherspoon, New York-based Canadian fashion designer Jason Wu is styling big names from the east coast to west. Recently partnering up with long-time friend and founder of beauty brand Caudalie, Mathilde Thomas, Jason has created limited edition products for the Caudalie range. Taking a break from his celebrity styling, he divulges his lifestyle secrets and grooming favourites that keep him on top of his crazy schedule.

 

The Breakfast Egg-quation

I always have the same thing for breakfast: two hard-boiled eggs, orange juice and iced coffee. Lunch is usually a salad or sushi. For dinner, I love cooking at home.

Keep it Simple

My grooming routine is minimal. I usually cut my own hair. I cleanse with Caudalie’s Instant Foaming Cleanser and I also steal female friends’ SK-II Facial Treatment Masks.

 

The Caudalie Vinothérapie Spa at The Plaza is my favourite place to unwind. I love the merlot wrap—it’s the perfect 30-minute rejuvenating interlude in my busy schedule.

 

I always travel with Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir, for which I designed the limited edition bottle. Spritzing after a long flight is almost like coffee for my skin. It’s also great during show prep. The light scent of mint is a perfect refresher and it immediately makes me feel revived.

 

Snapchat is my guilty pleasure. I think fashion takes itself too seriously sometimes and Snapchat is a fun way to get behind the scenes.

“I always have a Byredo cotton poplin candle burning to keep me zen.”

 

Drinking a lot of water is extremely beneficial to your body. I also drink a glass of red wine every night with dinner. Mathilde Thomas taught me that the resveratrol in wine is the best way to nourish your body.
