Awards season is officially upon us. The Golden Globes are set for Sunday, January 13 (check back for our coverage), and today the nominees for the BAFTAs were announced. Lincoln, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, and Les Misérables racked up the most nods, and red-carpet favorites like Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Marion Cotillard, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Helen Mirren (who just received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame), as well as Javier Bardem, Ben Affleck, Hugh Jackman, and Daniel Day-Lewis, are all up for honors. We’ll have to wait until the ceremony, which will be held at London’s Royal Opera House on February 10, to see who wins and, of course, what everyone wears.

August will be Stefano Tonchi’s first issue at W. For his first cover? A twofer, Jon Hamm and Rebecca Hall (co-stars in the new Ben Affleck movie The Town). W: the new, edgy indie? [WWD]
Alana Zimmer: total Charlotte. Sessilee‘s a Samantha. If you’ve ever been curious (and frankly, we didn’t know we were until we read the article), Modelinia rounded up a few of its favorite catwalkers to find out which Sex girl they identify with most. [Modelinia]

In terms of swag, Sundance isn’t quite the treasure trove it was a few years ago, when Sienna Miller famously got busted for hoarding freebies and movie fans wore “Focus on Film” pins in protest of celebrity-gifting suites.
Still, there’s no reason a product-toting Diesel publicist wouldn’t chase down Kristen Stewart’s publicist in broad daylight, as reportedly happened this year at the Main Street ski lift. The denim company had a station at a gifting lounge headlined by Lia Sophia, where the jewelry company’s reps found themselves sweet-talking more men than women. Ben Affleck presumably passed on his goody bag to Jennifer Garner, and Harvey Weinstein got on the phone with Georgina Chapman to ask her in his sweetest voice which chain necklace she fancied.
Across town, Fred Segal Fun, home of the I Heart Ronson booth, was doing brisk “business.” Kate Mara picked up a denim jacket and a white motorcycle jacket, America Ferrera took a brown bomber jacket, and Kristen Bell got a pair of sequin tops from the designer’s affordable JCPenney line. Opening weekend’s most-worn swag item was probably either Ronson’s black-and-yellow plaid shirt or the puffy coats being handed out a few booths over at KR3W—not to just anyone, of course. With the swag hunt afoot, guardians of goodies like George Gina & Lucy handbags and EMU sheepskin boots were left to distinguish “randoms” from desirable “customers” at Tilda Swinton’s end of the food chain. The fashion-forward actress had some Ronson samples sent her way—perhaps saving her a trip to JCPenney.
