Considering that it was only a few years back when he was slugging it out in guest spots on Angel and CSI, who could blame him for getting ambitious while the going's good with a slate of big-ticket projects like The Avengers and new installments of the Bourne and Mission Impossible franchises? But now we hear that the 40-year-old Cali native has plans to play that icon of craggy '60s cool, Steve McQueen — a mountain no other has dared climb.The always credible Hollywood see more

Perfect timing, then, for G.H. Bass & Co. to release the 75th Anniversary Collection of its Bass Weejun shoe, the model that pretty much defined the word loafer. Capitalizing on their see more

Details' Future Wife No. 102 and recent magazine-profile subject Lykke Li is not having a good evening. In the just-released video for the new single off her Wounded Rhymes album, "Sadness Is a Blessing", the Scandinavian coquette is in the middle of a sad, sad dinner with lover (or father?) and fellow Swede Stellan Skarsgård when she decides to down five or so shots of Kanon Vodka (nice product placement, btw). Given that Lykke probably weighs no more than a buck-twenty soaking wet, predictable drunken escapades ensue—in this case an interpretive dance set to the Phil-Spector-ish single. Naturally, the see more

While on the streets of Sydney and New York City, I keep seeing embroidered trousers—featuring not just teeny logos like Ralph Lauren, but full-on patterns. Some are fit for J.
