The Cult of Celebrity has its prayer books (Us Weekly), rites (Red Carpet), miracles (Alec Baldwin’s career), and disciples (Perez).
All that’s missing are the sacred relics.
Behold FamousFlakes, a pop-up biotique offering beautifully packaged vials of your favorite celeb’s skin and hair.
Founder Charles Remarque acquires the goods through a vast network of hotel housekeepers, aestheticians, surgeons, and a few celebrities themselves. Microdot arrays confirm genetic authenticity (and everything comes with a certificate of proof).
There are hundreds to choose from: Jake Gyllenhaal, Mike Bloomberg, Courtney Love. James Frey devotees can get a Billion Little Pieces in a vacuum-sealed cruet (Remarque swears it’s real); Bono voluntarily exfoliated himself and markets the slough under the Product (Red) line. Parker Posey and Chloë Sevigny are in the works.
Remarque will even bottle your flakes for a fee.
After all, skin sells.
