Things went from the normal primping...sharply downhill forcing him to miss the Independent Spirit awards and leaving it unclear whether he'd be able to attend the Oscars.
Although he was not feeling his best, the Call Me By Your Name Oscar nominee Armie Hammer made a strong showing on the red carpet with his custom Armani tux.
His secret? Celeb Groomer KC Fee spent the afternoon creating his award winning look.
KC notes for her clients walking the red carpet skincare is always the most important for men. Simple is always best, which is why Baxter of California is her kit staple — "simple, utilitarian, easy to navigate, masculine and cool."
