It's clearly fake, but it's making the internet rounds anyways, because everybody loves Robert Pattinson. Although the jury's still out on his new short hair.
OHLALA Mag: OHLALA ROBERT PATTINSON IN UNDIES! REAL OR FAKE?

Jennifer Connelly is one of the most unbelievably stylish people in the world, due in no small part to the fact that she can put ANYTHING on and make it work. Even if it's fug, her face takes all the attention. Everything from Balenciaga to McQueen to Givenchy to Balenciaga again are all perfection on her. It doesn't hurt that she's good friends of Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière, who cast her in an ad campaign last year. Gorgeous.
What better way to celebrate the start of Hanukkah than with this guy, some model from Israel named Guy. I think. That part is pretty much irrelevant. I won't make any jokes about him lasting for eight days and seven nights. I'll just keep that all inside my head.

These aren't them. Ryan Lochte's surely exceptional Calvin Klein Underwear ads don't come until next year, but the first pic is from his modeling portfolio. He looks quite amazing with his hair slicked back. The rest are from January's GQ, and sweet lordy are they great. I don't care what the hell they're supposed to be selling there. I'm sold.
Now that's a good reason to watch. Go, Zachary Levi, go!

I have no idea what's going on in this photo, and I don't even know for sure whether this movie is actually a romantic comedy, but I suppose it's called Phileine zegt sorry, which isn't actually the point. The point is that Michiel Huisman is shirtless in it, so to anybody from the Netherlands who would like to explain, in pictures or screencaps or otherwise, that would be greatly appreciated. Now if only Americans would replace Matthew McConaughey with this guy, we'd be all set.

Seriously, it's really awesome. Right now there's a sale on Marc by Marc Jacobs for men, and I just got a really awesome sweatshirt for more than $100 off. For women, they have stuff like Zac Posen, Milly, Alexander McQueen, Boy by Band of Outsiders, and the like. It's really, really, awesome.

For quite some time now, the tote bag has slowly been replacing the messenger bag as the handsome option for men to haul their stuff. Who better than Filson, the Seattle-based maker of extremely masculine hunting gear, to make a tote bag that just won't quit? Attractive in tan, and available in otter green as well. But I suggest you stick to tan.
Available from Filson or Steven Alan for $130.
2 - A.P.C. New Standard in Raw Indigo in Raw Indigo
For the denim equivalent of the Filson tote, it's hard to beat A.P.C.'s most-beloved classic. Stiff as a board and completely raw to start, these jeans will eventually break down exactly the way you want them to. Just give it a few months, and you'll easily have the best pair of jeans in your closet. Also goes well with everything I've listed here so far. The price recently went up from $140 to $155, so might as well get them before the price goes up again.
3 -Shipley & Halmos Whitman Sport Shirt - White
A guy will need a nice white shirt to match his new jeans, shoes, and pullover, so why not get something new and quietly amazing like this Shipley & Halmos take on the classic? It's cut well, and it's on sale at Barneys for $69.

1 - Bed Stu Stentorian Oxford
Urban Outfitter has this incredibly attractive shoe. Black is fine and all, but a beautiful shade of grey is a surprisingly effective perfect antidote to a drab, grey sky. Add something as simple as dark, slim, straight-leg jeans and a nice, crisp, white shirt, and you have yourself a winning combination. Not bad at all for $78!
2 - A.P.C. Narrow Tunisian Pullover
Navy blue and light beige, cotton-cashmere blend, buttoned placket, lovely stripes. On sale for $133, if they have any left. Actually, anything from A.P.C. is pretty much a worthwhile choice. Plus, they're having a sale right now!

Cathy Horyn of the New York Times dissects the whole fashion debacle. I know this is really past due, but I do like what Cathy Horyn has to say about 95% of the time.
In related news, go vote for Obama! And if you're in California, vote NO on Prop. 8! And if you're in Washington, vote for Chris Gregoire!
Watch this horrendous clip from VH1's "Scream Queens." Don't say I didn't warn you.
Also from the wonderful mind of Josh Schwartz: Zachary Levi as Chuck in "Chuck." Sweet, a-dork-able gratuity. Nerdy and cute, but really not at all. Just fuzzy and cut just right. It's on NBC, and since nobody's really watching it, maybe this will steer you in the right direction.
Thanks to here
You really need to be watching what New York is calling "The Greatest Show of Our Time." That's right, "Gossip Girl." From the wonderful mind of Josh Schwartz comes the best show since "The O.C.," for which he also served as executive producer. It truly is like he learned all his mistakes the first time around and has since gone on to avoid the lame conventions of teen soaps. Oh wait, no he hasn't. He still uses the same lame conventions - teenage lesbianism! teenage drug use! teenager from the wrong side of the tracks! - but manages to make them SPECTACULAR. It's easy to hate the characters. Some of them are written that way. Take Dan Humphrey, the Brooklyn boy caught in the sadly not make-believe world known as the Upper East Side. He's supposed to be so noble and good and talented at writing, but everybody, including the writers, knows what a grade-A douchebag he is. And his sister Jenny? Somehow even more retarded and annoying. The best characters, the ones we empathize with most, are the two most conventionally diabolical and exceptionally shallow Upper East Siders, Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. They dress in the most absurdly exaggerated manner, they think almost entirely of themselves, and they are nothing like anybody you would ever like in real life. But nobody cares, because THEY'RE AWESOME. And Nate Archibald, aka Chace Crawford? Somewhere between hot and creepy. Weird man bangs, wooden acting, something that comes far too close to pedophilic incest to be acceptable...sounds awful, right? But he's just young, dumb, and full of...fun...so we'll let it slide for now. For now. In any case, you just need to watch this show, for your own sake!

I hate winter. I HATE winter. Yea, that much. I just don't like being in St. Louis when the wind chills dip into the negatives. Why would you subject yourself to that? In any case, to shield myself from the deathly cold, I don't need a car with seat heaters, I just need this deliriously beautiful Marc Jacobs Classic Chesterfield! It's fuzzy like the Prada yeti/shag carpet coats from last year, but actually wearable and extremely desirable. I love charcoal, I love warm and fuzzy, I don't love the $2280 price tag. Crap.
Yea, they're totally silly. But this line slays me:
"Andy Martin, 34, a Fremontian who designs 'beeps and explosions' for video games, said he was drawn to the neighborhood partly by all the conversation-fodder art, including the Lenin statue."

Because Robert Pattinson is GORGEOUS. All-caps gorgeous. Absurdly, insanely, disturbingly gorgeous in that dirty kind of way. The way you don't really want to explain to people, because it's ravishing and probably very inappropriate. There's absolutely no reason for me to watch Twilight, a movie based on books I had never even heard of and concerning a subject I don't give a damn about. But holy shit, I could stare at him for hours. Hours I should be doing homework. Like right now. But all I really wanna do is swoon.

ESPNsoccernet - MLS - Ljungberg set to sign for Seattle
Yea, that's right. The absolute hottest Calvin Klein underwear model (excluding Garrett Neff, of course) is coming to Seattle. Holy crap. That's the best news ever. Combine Seattle's rainy weather and a really hot soccer player and you get a really wet, really hot soccer player. Hehehe. Now here's hoping Garrett Neff...enrolls at UW?

This man is an idiot:
"Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian lobby based in Washington, said in an interview, 'It’s more important than the presidential election.'
'We’ve picked bad presidents before, and we’ve survived as a nation,' said Mr. Perkins, who has made two trips to California in the last six weeks. 'But we will not survive if we lose the institution of marriage.'"So, please, if you're registered to vote in California, vote HELL FUCKING NO on Proposition 8.

Aw crap! Well, it really was nice while it lasted. It'd be nice to have a glittering new skyline with actual people living and working inside, but that may be many, many more years away.
Paula Deen is a goddess. A delicious butterball of a goddess. If she were my personal chef, well, I might just die and go to heaven right now. Yea, I probably would die, either from a heart attack or a stroke, I can't decide which. But it would all be worth it for just one night with Paula's incredible Disco Fries. Diner 24 in New York makes a version with brie and truffle sauce. God, I'm starving right now.

This lambskin jacket from Rick Owens on eLuxury may be the absolute most spectacular garment a guy can put on this autumn. Rick Owens uses the most buttery-soft distressed leather available, far softer than Mike & Chris or any other purveyor of desirable goods. This stuff is edgy but wearable, and certainly far cheaper than what girls wearing Balmain and even Nina Ricci are shelling out. So, if despite the economy, you still have a few bucks left in the bank to burn, there are really no better options than this jacket, a shield against the crisp autumn air...and possibly against anybody thinking you're afraid of this recession. You lucky bastards.

When you look into the eyes of 16 year-old Abbey Lee Kershaw, you don't exactly see a glowing, happy high school girl, do you? Alas, near the end of a long day, in which she woke up at 5 am and walked her last show more than 15 hours later, Abbey was nearly done with her stroll in Alexander McQueen's presentation when she fainted just before leaving the stage. Yikes. I suppose the leather corset she's wearing may be somewhat worrisome, but I think a lot of it has to do with the monthlong marathon of fashion shows that she has struggled through. Just a few weeks back in New York, Abbey also took a spill at the Rodarte show in her extremely high platforms and tight pants. Dangerous shoes are apparently a trend for Spring 2009, but if models can't navigate the runways in them, how are civilians going to traverse the less-than-ideal streets of New York? On a side note, the Alexander McQueen show was exceptionally beautiful.
