We recently spotted Kate Bosworth at Calvin Klein, but now she's across the pond in England for London Fashion Week. The actress looked super sexy attending the Burberry Prorsum show at Kensington Gardens yesterday. We love the royal wave she's giving the crowd in this pic. Lovely!

"This may come as a shock to you, but I am not particularly sports-minded. I am a fair-weather fan, at best. However, when society makes such a big deal about something – like the Super Bowl – I do pay attention. In honor of Green Bay’s recent win, I am going to dedicate this post to the nostalgic, Midwest home from which my family hails: Madison, Wisconsin. While perhaps not as sexy as my former destinations, it is not without plenty of charm – and fashion!
First stop? Why State Street, of course! Beginning at Lake Street and ending at the Wisconsin State Capital, this pedestrian-only six block stretch is riddled with shops, bars and restaurants boasting everything from University sweatshirts to Rebecca Minkoff.
Think Wisconsin is all farmers in denim overalls? Shop at Bop – the only brick & mortar for Alexis Bittar to Zimmermann, Uggs (perhaps the most obvious Wisconsin footwear choice) to yours truly, this fashion oasis is a refreshing reminder of how chic the “fly-over states” really are.
It’s easy to work up an appetite strolling through the great outdoors. My favorite place to eat is the Sunroom Café, but you have to know where you’re going – it’s unassumingly nestled on the second floor! Fair trade coffee, organic omelets, and locally grown produce – even the most discerning foodie’s palette will be happy. I always go for the grilled Norwegian salmon – add capers, please!
There is no high greater than a good vintage find, and St. Vinny’s is the go-to thrift shop. Have an ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater Party’? Need the perfect vintage polyester dress? Or a solid oak entertainment center? T-shirt circa 1978 toting a local beer league softball team? Look no further than St. Vincent’s. Don’t want to leave State Street? There’s Ragstock with both new and gently-loved affordable treasures – the perfect place to pick up your Halloween costume.
Madison, I love you – and your squeaky cheese curds, New Glarus beers, and Babcock ice cream!"

Modelinia's new t-shirts with model-related catch phrases are truly clever. Proclaim that "Nobody does it better than Abbey Lee" on your chest, or show the world that you Facebook "like" Karlie Kloss. Models Coco Rocha, Lara Stone and Dree Hemingway also have shirts dedicated to them. T-shirts are $45 and a portion of the proceeds go to Unicef, but act fast: Only a few have been made! We wonder who will sell out first....

Marc Jacobs' Robert Duffy has plans to open more Bookmarc stores in Toyko and Hong Kong, so with MJ planning world book domination, we couldn't help but wonder: What should Marc read next?
Leighton Meester: I have lots of recommendations. I recently read this really great book set in New York called A Time To Be Born.
Stephen Gan: There’s this Playboy anthology that’s actually available at Bookmarc that we wrote about, and I spent hours flicking through it. It was amazing.
Whoopi Goldberg and Eric Wilson (separately): The new Cleopatra biography.
Brad Goreski: I don’t know if he’ll like it, but I just read One Day on a cruise ship and had to remove myself from the main floor to go downstairs and have a massive cry at the end of it.
Cindi Leive: Anything by Edith Wharton.
Lorenzo Martone: We both like Augusten Burroughs. He has a very funny and sarcastic sense of humor. The last book that Marc gave me was the latest David Sedaris.
Anna Dello Russo: Black Swan. It’s not a book, it’s a movie. But I want to talk about it.
So what's he really reading?
“It’s by Jim Carroll, who wrote The Basketball Diaries. Um...he’s dead. It’s called The Petting Zoo!” —Marc Jacobs
