Brad Pitt is the new celebrity pitchman for Chanel No. 5, in an interesting experiment to see how effectively a man can sell women's perfume. He's reportedly being paid $7 million for his efforts.

1. Emma Watson cemented her standing as a budding fashionista at the hand-, foot- and wand-print ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre alongside "Harry Potter" cast mates Daniel Radcliffe, center, and Rupert Grint. Despite donning a knee-length Chanel dress, the 17-year-old wasn't afraid to get her hands dirty.

Patrick Demarchelier photographed Naya Rivera, Jennifer Morrison, Christa Miller and Clare Bowen wearing their birthday suits by a pool in Beverly Hills for Allure's annual nudes issue, on sale Monday. The nudes are carefully posed so you don't see more than might be exposed by a bathing suit. Amanda Seyfried is the issue's cover girl, but she kept her clothes on. [Allure] It may seem strange that Seyfried didn't disrobe for Allure. After all, she plays the title role of 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace in "Lovelace," so she isn't totally demure.

Hurricane Sandy has shut down production on at least half a dozen New York television shows and feature films, but none more ironically than Russell Crowe's “Noah.” Writer-director Darren Aronofsky's film about the biblical flood and ark postponed shooting Monday, but the more pressing question is what will happen to the movie's colossal boat. Aronofsky's production team built two massive ships - one inside a Brooklyn sound stage, the other in the water at Oyster Bay, N.Y. And Oyster Bay, a small inlet on the Long Island Sound, is very much in the path of Hurricane Sandy, with local flooding and wind gusts of up to 63 mph reported in the area . The outdoor ark, which measures 450 feet long and is 75 feet tall and 45 feet wide, was not intended to be seaworthy.

Derek Blasberg's social calendar reads like WWD's Eye column or a Bravo reality series and an episode of "Gossip Girl" rolled into one. Before you ask, "Derek who?," we'll tell you: Blasberg is a New York-based fashion scribe for Style.com and V Magazine who made himself a boldface name after escorting A-list celebrities such as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Emma Watson and Chloe Sevigny on the global society whirl. Blasberg decided to parlay time spent on the arms of social butterflies into an etiquette book, "Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady," positioning himself as a latter-day Emily Post who advises what one should or should not tweet or upload to Facebook.
