• The photos from the latest America’s Next Top Model actually look kind of artistic and not like utter crap as in the one where they wore raw meat. [FabSugar]

• Chloë Sevigny missed hosting her Nylon party because she collapsed from a viral infection earlier that day. Guests still ate a cake with her face on it, though. [NYP]

• College basketball announcer Dick Vitale has “vivacious” style, which he’ll show off as he wraps up March Madness. [WSJ]

• Victoria Beckham looked overdressed when she lunched with David in L.A. the other day. Shocker. [ Mirror]
