Exhibit B: Marc Jacobs has picked the ladies from t.A.T.u. to be the face of his fall and winter lines.

Julia Volkova and Lena Katina are sort of cute and all, but ... um ... does anyone still listen to them? Jossip puts it best: "Fine, they may be as obsessed about their outward appearance as you, but it's way too late to cash in on their 15 minutes, and way too early to try and make an ironic comeback statement."

Anyway, here's a video of their photo shoot:




Exhibit C: Perry Farrell is starring in a John Varvatos ad!

For this Varvatos shot, the Lollapalooza founder and Jane's Addiction frontman is standing on the Bowery in front of the "Joey Ramone Place" street sign wearing flared pants. Do you need more elaboration?

Honorable Mention: The Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr. is designing his own line of suits.

Okay, this isn't so bad, but I think it would suit us if he worked on a new Strokes album instead of Stroking his ego with a suit line.
