Pardon Our French

  • Najib Benouar

Ladies and gentlemen, Gisele Bündchen is back. (Pun only slightly intended.)

Just hours ago, Paris Vogue revealed their June cover—we rarely get excited about this sort of thing, but we’d be doing you a disservice by not sharing such a great moment in beach photography. (Yes, there is a beach somewhere in this shot.)

This was the one day it paid off to be Condé Nast’s chief sand removal expert...

Betting On the Gatorade Bath

As gentlemen, we would never bet on the outcome of a sporting event. Luckily, we don’t have to.

Come Sunday, we’ll be betting on the outcome of the national anthem, the halftime show and the ceremonial pouring of the Gatorade. They’re part of a slew of online prop bets that have popped up in anticipation of the Super Bowl. And to guide you through the thicket of wagers, we’ve collected seven of our favorites, along with expert analysis of each one.

It’s time to bet the mortgage. There’s absolutely nothing that could go wrong.

Our seven favorite Super Bowl bets, and our wager on each one»

Our Favorite Flasher


A Bumpy Ride: Gisele shows up in London Fog’s latest spots with a strangely non-pregnant belly. Not that we’re complaining… [The Cut]

All In a Row: The fashion elite gather in a single room, with predictably terrifying results. [The New York Observer]

High Riders: The latest Harleys inspire wanderlust. [Luxist]

Stella!: Michaels Showalter and Ian Black debate the merits of microblogging. [Esquire]

Mosquito Alert


Gone Fishin’: S Magazine pioneers the pantsless-fishing photoeditorial. Apparently it’s still too real for the mainstream. [The Cut]

Blood and Goretex: Mr. Williams continues his string of envy-inducing factory tours with a trip to Vancouver’s Arc’teryx shop. [A Continuous Lean]

Building Buzz: Givenchy has been giving its models some frighteningly pointy buzz cuts. [The Moment]

Cover Girl: Apparently a topless Gisele pic can’t move copies like it used to. Market saturation? Impossible! [Gawker]

Ms. Bundchen, Mrs. Love, and the Endangered Cork


The Carter: Gisele spends the latest Vanity Fair shoot finding creative ways to avoid goosebumps. [FashionIndie]

Tapped Out: Wines may be ditching the cork for the spigot. Anything that nets fewer corkscrew injuries is fine with us. [NYTimes]

All For Love: According to her publicist, Courtney Love is actually very frugal. [Luxist]

Ape Shall Not Purchase Ape: Boutique streetwear may not be the recession-proof staple we thought it was. [PSFK]

Pies, Marriage, and the Best Opticians in the Country


Throwing Pies: Mary-Louise Parker is one of our favorite people…and apparently an accomplished drunken pastry chef. [Esquire]

Condolences are In Order: Ladies and Gentlemen, Gisele is off the market for real. And this Brady character sounds highly suspect. [People]

Individualism: ACL unearths yet another quality domestic shirt-maker. [A Continuous Lean]

Keeping an Eye Out: The Times catches on to our favorite opticians, thanks to a few well-selected collabs. Congrats, fellows. [The Moment]

Ms. Allen, Mr. Obama, and Gisele’s Availability


The Seven Veils…: Lily Allen tries out Interview and apparently joins the army in the bargain. [FashionIndie]

The New Crew: Obama loves J. Crew more than we ever would have guessed. Does that mean we can look for a few v-neck sweaters in the months to come? [Racked]

TB + GB: Apparently Tom and Gisele aren’t quite as engaged as we thought. [The Cut]

The Best of the Best: The definitive Sundance roundup, if you were curious… [Vulture]
