Tom Brady: The Feet Of Ugg, And More of Today’s Top Stories

-------

We’ve all seen him wear them, and now he’s celebrating them. Tom Brady (pictured) flew in from Boston this week to fête the opening of the first Ugg for Men store, where the label showed off the latest ad campaign images featuring the sports star. Clad in his own Ugg shoes, the New England Patriots quarterback and hubby of Gisele said, “To see what they are rolling out now, with the winter boots and the rocker boots, it’s pretty amazing.” [WWD]

Nike is playing up its feminine side these days. The sportswear label enlisted the likes of Mary Charteris, Sarah Sophie Flicker, and Natalie Joos to star in its new ad campaign, Play, and caught them on film talking about what their favorite sport means to them. [Vogue U.K.]

Take a lesson from Charlize Theron—do not auction yourself as a dinner date for charity. The Snow White and the Huntsman actress divulged to Conan O’Brien that “it’s like the worst idea ever,” recalling the time she ended up on a date with a “strange” man. It’s safe to say the actress will stick to donating money from now on. [Page Six]

Fresh off his CFDA win, Billy Reid is taking no time off to relax. With a menswear business worth $20 million in sales this year, the Alabama native is riding a retail expansion wave. Having just opened his seventh store last week, a 2,500-square-foot space in the Provisions District of Atlanta, Reid has announced he already has plans for his eighth outpost, in Austin, Texas.

The Fruit Of Her Labors

-------

Leslie Fremar is routinely voted one of the most powerful stylists in Hollywood—powerful enough, it seems, to get even star clients like Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron to wear Fruit of the Loom. The trick: She designed it herself. The new collection of Fremar’s line of French-seamed tees, sinuous tanks, long cardigans, and more launched yesterday at New York’s Beauty & Essex. The rationale for the line is simple: “There were cheap T-shirts, and then there were really expensive T-shirts, $200 T-shirts, $300 T-shirts,” she says. “I wanted to have the luxury of really soft cotton with a perfect fit that’s affordable”—but the possibilities are many. “I always like some casual element in whatever I’m wearing,” Fremar explains, “because I like to be comfortable.” Even at the most rarified of events? “Fruit of the Loom on the red carpet?” She pauses. “That’s great. If you want to wear a T-shirt with a ball skirt, I won’t say no.”

Leslie Fremar for Fruit of the Loom is now available at Bloomingdales, www.bloomingdales.com.

Who Was Best Dressed At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner?

-------

Maybe the much talked-about new White House social secretary, Jeremy Bernard, had something to do with it, or perhaps it’s because it’s an election year, but this weekend’s 98th annual Correspondents’ Association Dinner was its most star-studded ever. Everyone from Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron to Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan made appearances, mingling with the President and the First Lady, as well as the usual array of politicians and journalists. At the top of our best-dressed list stand Kate Hudson in a dazzling purple Jenny Packham gown, Dakota Fanning (pictured) in an embellished, sky blue Prada number, and Elizabeth Banks, who sported a bright red Antonio Berardi column with a peplum waist.

-------

Model Liya Kebede is in a new French children’s film, Sur La Piste du Marsupilami (On the Trail of Marsupilami), based upon a Belgian comic book series. In the film, which debuted in Paris last night (officially opening April 4), Kebede plays the beautiful Queen Paya. [Telegraph]

For its first time ever, Tumi has joined forces with an outside designer, Dror Benshetrit, for an ongoing collection. The first round includes 11 pieces ($195 to $895) and hits stores nationwide April 1. [WWD]

Rizzoli is releasing a new tome, entitled Stars in Dior ($65), about the French house’s famous wearers. The book, due out in France in May and in the U.S. in September, includes images of Charlize Theron, Marilyn Monroe, and Marlene Dietrich. [The Hollywood Reporter]

In other Dior news, Marion Cotillard is the face of Dior’s new Lady Dior campaign. In the Peter Lindbergh-lensed ads, due out next month, the actress is carrying one of the label’s crocodile and raffia handbags. [Grazia Daily]

Oscar Nominations Announced

-------

At last, this year’s Academy Award nominations were announced, and there were certainly a few surprises. The Artist, as expected, is a top contender, but it’s Martin Scorsese’s Hugo that earned the most nods, with 11 nominations compared to the silent film’s ten. Rooney Mara made the Best Actress cut for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but big contenders like Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and Charlize Theron (Young Adult) did not. And although Ryan Gosling earned high praise for his work in Drive and The Ides of March, he was left off the Oscars list all together. To see the full list, visit Oscar.go.com.
