There’s Already an Impostor Drunk J.Crew Twitter Account

Last week, a little Tumblr site called Drunk J.Crew won the Internet with its hilarious captions on J.Crew catalog models who, in attempts to look easygoing and carefree, actually look rather drunk. Now it seems there are people looking to capitalize on the success of the account, which has only been around for about a week.

According to former The Onion writer and stand-up comic Dan Telfer, there is an impostor Drunk J.Crew twitter account floating around and it’s gaining followers masquerading as the real thing. Apparently, the correct twitter and Instagram handle for the site is @DrunkJCrewUGuys, as opposed to @DrunkJCrew, which popped up on October 16. Jen Ellison, the Chicago-based comedienne and brain behind the Tumblr, posted her first tweet on October 17 stating that hers is the real account.

We looked through the alleged poseur account and it seems Telfer is on to something. Whereas @DrunkJCrewUGuys includes tweets and retweets of press snippets, @DrunkJCrew simply has photos ripped from the Tumblr page. We would think that were @DrunkJCrew a real account, there would at least be retweets from the several media outlets that covered the page.

Right now, @DrunkJCrew has about 500 more followers than @DrunkJCrewUGuys. We’re pretty sure Jen Ellison is looking to change that.

Pharrell Williams to Appear in Next Chanel Film

Pharrell Williams has secured his ninja grip on the hearts of the fashion set this year through a series of dope collaborations and lots of tall hats. It looks like Karl Lagerfeld is also a fan of the music producer as he’s tapped Pharrell to appear in the next short film for Chanel. 

WWD says that the film is expected to be released in conjunction with the house’s Salzburg resort show, which will be staged December 2. Pharrell will appear alongside Cara Delevingne (with whom he just finished working on a single) and mini Chanel muse Hudson Kroenig, the 6-year-old boy who famously “fired” Lagerfeld from his post at the fashion house last year.

Pharrell has really beefed up his presence in the fashion world this year, filling up his schedule with several collaborations with Adidas Originals, Moynat, Comme des Garçons and several others. Whether or not the move was intentional, it seems to be working. Lagerfeld, who is always on the hunt for what’s cool and what’s now, is clearly as enthralled with the producer as the rest of us.

We’ll be patiently waiting to see what the duo cooks up.

Renée Zellweger Is Glad You Noticed Her Face Looks Different

Pretty much everyone has been talking about the mystery woman at ELLE‘s Women in Hollywood event this weekend who’s been going around saying she’s Renée Zellweger, though she doesn’t look anything like the actress we remember from Bridget Jones’s Diary. There has been much speculation as to what Renée has been doing lately to account for her new look, but don’t think the actress is mad that people are talking. In fact, she says she’s pretty thrilled about it. 

Renée addressed her appearance in an interview with People. “I’m glad folks think I look different!” she told the mag. The actress explained her new look, which she says isn’t because of plastic surgery. She decided to discuss the matter because “it seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn’t exist won’t get off my porch until I answer the door.” Right. So, what gives Renée? The actress uses the ol’ “taking better care of myself” defense to explain the apparent change in her face’s entire bone structure. “For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.” 

Renée adds, “I did work that allows for being still, making a home, loving someone, learning new things, growing as a creative person and finally growing into myself.”

Who knew a little R&R could have such a drastic effect on your appearance?
