This just in! Old Spice held a hunk-off at The Grove shopping center in LA yesterday called "Mano a Mano en El Bano"...which means, hand-to-hand in the bathroom. Former footballer and Old Spice frontman, Isaiah Mustafa, competed against Fabio to keep his reigning title in your typical meaty man competitions--staring matches, whistling contests, workout reps, and love letter writing. Why? No one knows.

Good thing Miranda Kerr left her angel wings at home, because the VS mod was looking devilishly hot down under! Just 6 months after giving birth to son Flynn, the 28-year old Aussie made a P.A. in her native land to help launch 60 new David Jones Brands at the Elizabeth Street Store in Sydney. Our favorite mod looked ravishing in a serpent lace dress by Australian label LOVER paired with taupe-y Christian Louboutin platforms. Can you say red hot?

A Moment With...Angela Lindvall

Models learning about social media? Oui, oui! Chic chatted with the lovely Angela Lindvall at Marie Claire's panel, "Social Media: The Perils and Possibilities of Living In a Digital World," earlier this week, just a row away from a polka dot-bedecked Coco Rocha.  We learned about Lindvall's old-school correspondence preferences, what she got Grandma for her birthday, and lots more... 

Are you jazzed by social media? 
I am not very good at it; I don’t participate in it. I am not one to be on my Facebook page everyday. This whole movement with computers and stuff happened more recently; I didn’t grow up with it when I was a teenager! I prefer writing with pen and paper, and reading books.

Do you frequently snail-mail stuff?
No, I don’t write letters. I should! I got my grandmother an iPad recently for her eightieth birthday. So we are emailing now! She was the only person I ever wrote letters to.

What else do you do online?
I love Google searching! But in terms of social media, I need to learn more. I know it’s just the biggest phenomenon nowadays. 

Who would you like to be pen pals with?
Maybe like Robert Frost or Henry David Thoreau. I can just see them sitting in the middle of the woods somewhere, writing letters...

Your plum-hued getup is lovely--who are you wearing?
I have no idea, I really don’t. I got it from the wardrobe department and put it on. I knew I liked the color, and that’s it. I don’t know what the tag says. I am like the antichrist of fashion!

Who knew? Underneath his expertly tailored bespoke suit, Mr. Armani has been concealing a major washboard. This week, the 77-year-old (!) designer was seen frolicking off the beaches of Spain in a barely-there brief. Discuss!

Sound the alarm! Rachel Weisz was sizzling at the Cinema Society screening of The Whistleblower last night at The Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City. The 41-year old Brit, and recently wed Mrs. Bond, looked dressed to kill in a fire-engine red capped sleeve Valentino dress, coupled with a silver Judith Leiber clutch and shimmering Bulgari gems. Bien fait!

Last night, the fash brigade beat the heat at The Jane Hotel for AIKO's Fall 2011 presentation featuring an indie short starring Lydia Hearst and directed by bestie Charlotte Kidd. Mid-reel, Chic and Lydia talked shop.

What's new?
I just moved from New York to LA and just finished my second feature film. One is going to the Toronto Film Festival next month and the second one is going to Sundance. I co-star with Sienna Miller and Danny Huston.

What was it like working with Charlotte?
Charlotte is one of my best friends, so the second that she came up to me with this idea I didn’t even hesitate. We experimented and had a lot of fun. She's really professional.

How was the filmmaking process?
We did this in one day. It was a little guerrilla-style shooting, but that’s what you have to do. We just went for it!

Only focusing on films right now?
No, I’m still modeling and acting full time. This September and October I have many more fashion magazine covers, editorials, and campaigns coming out. There’s a lot to look forward to. I just launched my visual website two days ago. I’m sort of living my dream.

What's your typical Friday night?
I literally spend my nights at home reading books. I just got through the Hunger Games series. I only go out when I'm promoting projects I'm working on.

Did you ever go through a plain Jane moment in your life?
I had braces, but I think everybody did. I had them for two and a half years! I didn’t smile at all during that time.
