Patrick Wolf is The Bachelor

A guest spot from actress Tilda Swinton is just one of many reasons to prick up your ears and listen to this fourth album from dashing English singer-songwriter Patrick Wolf. The album is comprised of two markedly different sets of songs, which begin with a collection that Wolf describes as a nihilistic battle record. Fortunately he demonstrates his softer side by dedicating the second half of the record to battles of love, a volte-face apparently triggered when he fell in love shortly before recording commenced. The album is titled The Bachelor, and Wolfs desire to deviate from the beaten path of rock & roll has prompted him to sell shares in the recording.

Emma Watson for Interview

Since the first Harry Potter novel was published in 1997, millions upon millions have dreamt of being transported to Potterworld. But what they probably don’t know is that, in reality, it’s only a few miles northwest of central London—part of a former WWII aircraft factory turned movie set called Leavesden Studios. This is where Emma Watson, known around these parts as Hermione Granger, sits, like most days, perched in her trailer, squeezing in a lunch of french fries, as she waits for a shot to be set up in a converted hangar.

Best Attempt at Pimping a Ride -- Vogue

This is a new one for Vogue.

Labels: , ,

Most Treacherous Location -- W

How are these models lying on these terribly uncomfortable-looking rocks with so little flesh to pad them? What happens if they slip off? How many cuts and bruises were Photoshopped out?

Worst Pants for Traveling -- Flare

Good luck fitting down the airplane aisle in those things.

Least Realistic Menswear Editorial -- Esquire

This picture bothers us more than that video Rihanna did with Maroon 5, in which she is running around practically naked while the band enjoys the warmth and comfort of pants and shirts. It's also totally unrealistic -- if a guy is in the presence of a playful naked girl in the shower, he'll be in the shower.

Most Overexposed Model -- Erin Wasson

Erin Wasson stars in the Pinko campaign and made a cameo in the new Love magazine. In case that wasn't enough Wasson for you, she removed her top.

Shiniest Ensembles -- British Vogue
