We have a very sad sports columnist on our hands today! Uber-Jets fan Adam Brecht was hoping his team, The Jets, would make it all the way to the Superbowl, but alas...it just wasn't their year. Le sigh. Adam is still prepping you for the Superbowl with his tips on how to behave when the Packers play the Steelers on February 6.

Football or fashion, everyone loves a party!  It unites, n'est-ce pas?  Below are Superbowl party do's and don'ts, fashion friends.  (You never know—your top investor might invite you!)

Do praise the man-food.  "Fritos with chili and cheese?  J'adore! How did you know?"   

Don't text the chef at L'Espadon to FedEx you foie gras and oyster consommé with winter vegetables and ginger.
Do rock a designer hoodie. You can't go wrong.

Don't wear a McQueen armadillo shoe.  (At least not right away.  Maybe later on.  Much, much later on.  Mmmmm-kay?)
Do shout.  Scream to support one team (like on Fashion's Night Out).  Yell to oppose another (like those cabbies who cover your hand-cobbled Oxfords in a tsunami of slush). 

Don't chant.  I know it centers you in the chaos, old sport, but let's save it for the garden at Rambagh Palace after Fashion Week.

Do ignore the game's half-time entertainment -- and offer to provide your own.

Don't let it be your karaoke Gaga. 
Finally, do admire the Superbowl trophy.  "Pure sterling!  Nice!"  And remember, Superbowl is a battle for jewelry: the Superbowl ring, the most coveted sign of success in football.  It's not so different from a sample sale after all.  Now you're right at home!"

Over the years, fashion's sweetheart Naomi Campbell has peddled SoBe drinks, Dunkin Donuts sweets and D&G togs in ads on the small screen. Now, the runway strutter can be spotted in a Russian ad for a luxe apartment complex owned by her (still-married) paramour of three years, Moscow real estate developer Vladimir Doronin. In the hilarious minute-long montage, Campbell slinks out of bed, sips a coffee, hits the on-premises gym for a solo spinning sesh, then gets glammed up for a night on the town. La dolce vita indeed! The building's dramatic name? "Legend of Tsvetnoy."

Did Diesel Buy An Island?

Diesel Island? Is this for real? Diesel Island? Is this for real?

This is ambitious! Diesel has apparently purchased a landmass. Fans of the brand will soon be able to virtually shape laws, watch videos of island life, meet its citizens and visit the island's Wikipedia page. It all sounds so hoaxy, but we contacted publicists, who confirm that it is indeed a real place. We all know that publicists never ever lie.

A Moment With...Greta Gerwig

Chic caught up with Greta Gerwig, the comedic starlet of No Strings Attached, at the film's screening last night presented by the Cinema Society with DKNY Jeans, DeLeón Tequila and amNewYork. On the agenda: N'SYNC, boys, and online dating. The usual red carpet gab.

Your new movie is called No Strings Attached. Coincidentally, N'SYNC had an album with the same title. Can you name one song from the album?
"I Want It That Way?"

That's Backstreet Boys. Where's the best place to meet a man?
Jail would be the worst. Hmm…the ballet. Oh, no. He’d probably be gay then.

Worst date ever?
I did go on a date with someone I thought was gay and it turns out he wasn’t.

Why did you think he was gay?
He was a musical theater person. I thought for sure he was gay and we were just going to hang out. Then I realized at the very end of the night and was like, “Oh no! This is a date. No. Oh. Oh.” I sent out all kinds of signals. That was awkward.

Would you ever try online dating?
Yes. Some of my friends have tried it, and my brother met his wife that way.

Which website would you choose?
I wouldn’t do eHarmony, because they don’t let gay people on it. I don’t know…is Craigslist a dating website?
