is this suddenly a movie blog?!



It’s more than a movie… That’s the tag line Sports Illustrated is using to justify putting Brad Pitt on its cover. Pitt is playing Billy Beane, the Oakland A’s general manager in Moneyball, which is due out this week and has received rave reviews.

Pitt-as-Bean has also taken over the homepage at NYTimes.com, though in a more traditional sense: with a giant banner ad.

(ot) oki-ni styled by mark mcmahon



The latest lookbook for oki-ni, styled by Mark McMahon, shows off lots of outerwear in a range of textures — cords, wool, and neoprene (!) — paired with clashing prints and colors. (We’re all about it these days.) Sadly, the garments are too thick for our blood and for SoCal winters, so we’ll enjoy it from the comfort of our computer.

want: plaid and stripes (and maybe andrew garfield)



We can’t put our finger on what we like about Andrew Garfield‘s disheveled look. The plaid/stripes/backpack combo, perhaps? That wild, Wolverine hair? The silver backpack?

The actor (and perfect Andy Murray stand-in) attended the screening of Meatballs held at the Hollywood Forever cemetery a few weeks ago. Next to him in that photo is Band of Outsider’s Scott Sternberg.
