At last night's delicious unveiling of the fabulous new BA Kitchen, nestled a floor below Bon Appétit's 4 Times Square HQ, Chic grabbed a quick gab sesh with Penn Badgley. The actor ambled in avec  Zoe Kravitz to chat with ?uestlove,  before Badgley and Kravitz meandered out in a modified congo line formation. (Chic kids you not, kiddies!)

Why are you here, in the middle of midtown, at 10 p.m.?
Actually, that’s an excellent question. I had no idea what this was, but Ahmir [?uestlove] texted me. When he gave me the address, I was like, “what the…?!” But I showed up and ate some chicken. It's a good time. 

Do you cook much? 
I don’t; I can cook, but I haven’t really since I got to New York. 

Where do you often order in from while you’re neglecting your kitchen? 
It’s simple, but Mole, right on Houston and Allen Streets. 

What’s your style trademark? 
T-shirts! But really, I just try not to wear the same thing twice in a row. That’s all! Well, I have worn the same clothes more than once, but in private. That’s a different story.

What's your fashion sensibility been like lately? 
Over the last 10 months of my life, my style has been shifting in a way. Not that I’ve ever had any particular style, because I tend to wear the same shit.

Does your personal style jive with Dan, your Gossip Girl
character?
Nah. It’s nice stuff, but as a function of it being on television, it’s too many button-downs for me. Too many layers, and it’s not like Dan is ever that dressed up. Some of the clothes are really quite nice, too. For the most part, I don’t want to be defined by Dan’s style. I do spend a lot of time wearing that stuff all day, every day, for the show. 

Whose closet would you love to raid?
Courtney Love's!

How about a kitchen worth crashing?
This one. It’s truly awesome.

It's out! It was announced last June that Ricky Martin (soon to be on Broadway in Evita) and Nicki Minaj would replace Lady Gaga as the faces of VIVA GLAM, and the first image was released today. Looking good, kids! The makeup line raises money for HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, and former GLAM faces include k.d. Lang, Cyndi Lauper, Boy George, Fergie, Mary J. Blige and RuPaul.

How cute! Jason Wu and Prabal Gurung caught up last night at Mister H at the Mondrian Soho for the Young Friends of ACRIA Fall Fundraiser. Notice anything missing from this photo? Prabal isn't wearing his signature white t-shirt. Zut alors! Bring us some smelling salts because Chic just fainted...

With so much Tamara Mellon in the air this week, it suddenly dawned on us that she's got a doppelganger! Is anybody else seeing the similarity to actress Olivia Wilde? We do, we do!

Marc Jacobs' Spring '12 Collection Gets Jacked!

Apparently, someone couldn't wait for Marc's latest looks to hit stores and magazine pages in a few months! Marc Jacobs' entire Spring '12 collection, the very same samples that were trotted down the NYFW runway back in September, were pilfered earlier today from a London-bound train departing from Paris. The frocks were en route to a press day with editrices at British fashion glossies, and said editors found out about the 46 missing MJ creations via an apologetic email announcing the cancellation of the scheduled press day at a Marc store in London. Editors working with a couple months' worth of lead time are in despair for how to jazz up their pages with Jacobs' finery for spring, while stylists hoping to hit up the preview for some prettiness to swath their starlet clients in will have to look elsewhere, alas...
