Chace Crawford Shows Off His Range In New Movie, “Twelve” (Just Kidding!)


Twelve, by Nick McDonnell, is not a particularly good book. (My personal, snotty theory is that McDonnell got the book deal in the first place because his father edited Sports Illustrated and family friends have included people like P.J. O’Rourke, George Plimpton, and Hunter S. Thompson.) “Twelve” the movie looks marginally better, if only because it means we can stare at Chace Crawford‘s lovely face for two hours. He plays a rich Upper East Side kid who gets in over his head selling drugs to the kids of his social milieu — kind of like a two-hour-long episode of “Gossip Girl” if only Nate Archibald were more like Chuck Bass.

Poor Chace has gotta be sick of playing the same role over and over and over again, though. Will somebody cast the poor dear in a sci-fi flick or something? Keep reading »

How Gossip Girls Really Dress

As if Little J could really get away with dressing like a drugged-out downtown hooker at a posh prep school. It feels like with each season, “Gossip Girl” becomes increasingly unbelievable. We wish they’d just tone things down a little bit and take a page from the real world. Like, for example, finding out how real private school girls dress. WWD published this shoot of young ladies from Phillips, Milton, and Concord Academies, and we’re loving their school-friendly outfits that are very smartly styled with luxe items like Chanel purses and cute fillers from J. Crew or vintage stores. Kind of like how we dress! [Styleite.com] Keep reading »

Quotable: Taylor Momsen Ain’t No Effing Role Model

“To be honest, I don’t f**king care. I didn’t get into this to be a role model. So I’m sorry if I’m influencing your kids in a way that you don’t like, but I can’t be responsible for their actions. I don’t care.”

Graphic Novels Gone Girly

Graphic novels have always suffered a geek taint, a stubborn case of social acne that alienates certain sects of people. There have always been a handful of Comic-Con cuties, but, overall, society has labeled graphic novels a man’s medium. Yen Press has a solution to bring some girl power to the graphic novel. The publisher is taking female-favored heavyweights and adapting them to fit this medium. This year, Yen Press will be introducing the first installments of both The Twilight Saga and Gossip Girl series. Twilight promises to be loyal to the original novels—Yen is even working with author Stephenie Meyer to capture the right money-making, heart-melting formula. Gossip Girl, on the other hand, is a re-imagining of the story with all the classic characters. I don’t think Twihards will have any problem taking to the new medium—heck, they’ll buy anything Forks-inspired. Gossip Girl may be harder to sell. What do you think—will manga-ized Serena and Bella bring a new surge of women to the graphic novel? [EW, MTV]
