Lea Michele is the New Face of Candie's: Rachel Berry is set to succeed Vanessa "Baby V" Hudgens as the latest Candie's girl. We get that both girls have starred in televised series about high school students bursting into song, but can you really picture the divalicious Ms. Michele accessorizing her Marchesa gowns with a pair of Candie's? Precisely. {E!} Man Gets an Andrej Pejic Tattoo, the Permanent Kind: Someone will be walking around for the rest of his life with this tattoo of androgynous angel Andrej Pejic. The new definition of 'timeless fashion'? {Refinery 29} Hasbro Trying to Monopolize Clothing: The toy and board game manufacturer is teaming with tee company Junk Food and Jay-Z's Rocawear for some brand rejuvenation in the form of fashion tees and sportswear. The collections will be available at Kitson and Macy's, respectively, this spring. Unfortunately, Monopoly money will not be accepted as a payment form. {WWD}

Lara Stone Gets Blown Away: The latest model-turned-actress? Lara S. gets blown away by some crazy weather in this new short for Mercedes-Benz - but we can't really say we were blown away by her acting skills, which seem to consist mainly of a furrowed brow, confused/alarmed expression, and a slightly unhinged jaw. Nice legs though! {Nowness}

Bootylicious Fly Named After Beyonce: Researchers have dubbed a previously unnamed species of horse fly species the 'Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae fly,' in honor of Blue Ivy's mother (aka Beyonce). The rare yet pesty fly, which is native to Australia, has a "spectacular" golden "booty," making it the "all-time diva of flies." Well we always have thought B was pretty fly... {ONTD}

What's Better Than Fashion and Hot Guys? That's Right, Nothing: Brioni will reportedly use 'real men' (as opposed to models, who are apparently fake men) for its upcoming Milan menswear presentation, and Prada will use international movie stars (including Adrien Brody) for its menswear show. Additionally, Fendi is set to release a men's collection during Milan Fashion Week, and is rumored to be releasing a men's fragrance fronted by the always hip Mark Ronson. {Brioni & Prada&Fendi, both WWD}

He also told Lucky Mag that he's obsessed with Lana Del Rey. Designers: They're just like us! {Lucky}
