Not that we’re in the habit of punting about Hollywood releases, but today’s debut of “21″ raises a few intriguing questions. Given that the film stars fashion muse-of-the-moment Kate Bosworth (see Vogue’s February 2008 cover), should we expect ateliers across town to be closing up shop early, the better to let Bosworth-favored designers like the Proenza boys take in a screening? Further: Given the Bosworth connection, and given that she plays a card-counting MIT applied mathematics major, should we be expecting a sexy brainiac theme at the September shows? Or perhaps—inasmuch as the movie is set in Vegas, with the principal action at the blackjack tables—we should clear our calendars for some casino-flavored benefits, and punch up our own card-counting skills? But consider this: “21″ also stars Jim Sturgess, English heartthrob of “Across the Universe” and the man poised to kick Jude and Orlando off the top of the U.K.’s Most Snoggable lists—so is anyone going to be watching Kate anyway?
