• While poor Adriana Lima is sucking down powdered egg protein shakes to get fit for tonight’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show, Chanel Iman is busy putting on 15 pounds for the event: “I’m always the opposite of everything. I drink a lot of protein shakes and do a lot of weight lifting.” The most fun comes the day before the big show: “I have a big potluck at my house. All my friends bring over food and we barbecue and party it up!” As if we needed something else to envy Ms. Iman for. (Modelina)
• Marc Jacobs is absolutely beside himself about his portrayal on a recent episode of South Park. “I am the Muscle Man Marc doll on South Park, and I joined the very great ranks of being one of Cartman’s toys — although I get boiled to death at the end of the episode.

It’s like, to be immortalized on South Park, I can die a happy man. That’ll be my next tattoo, the Muscle Man Marc from South Park.” More of an honor than his CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award? Marc Jacobs loves him some South Park! I can’t wait to see the tat! (The Cut)
