Fashion News Roundup: South Park Characters Get Naked for Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang is Expanding in Asia, and a Model Chooses God Over Victoria's Secret

Alexander Wang is Expanding Eastward: Alex Wang is breaking the typical fashion business expansion mould (West followed by Eastern markets) with plans to open fourteen locations in Asia in the next year. The designer, who has no plans yet to open any more US stores (he currently has only one in NYC) says he has seen "the progression" of fashion in China years after his mom tried to (lovingly) pressure him into moving there. Wang's 4,000-sq-ft Beijing flagship store will open its doors next month. {WWD} Are Adam Levine and Anne V. Dunzo? Rumor has it that genetically-blessed couple Adam and Anne have parted ways after two years of unwedded bliss. The Maroon 5 star was looking "really heartbroken" at a Super Bowl party. Hm. {NY Post} South Park Strips Down for Marc Jacobs: Following in the nudie footsteps of Victoria Beckham and Naomi Campbell, the cast of South Park have stripped down for some Marc Jacobs tees benefitting The Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative Group at NYU. Thankfully, Muscle Man Marc's former co-stars have some strategically placed lettering preserving their modesty on the $35 tees - which are really, really funny. {WWD}

Model Quits Victoria's Secret for Jesus: Kylie Bisutti, who won VS's 2009 model search competition, has quit the brand because she wants to be a good role model for young Christian girls and "do everything [she] can to keep [her] marriage special"-- which apparently doesn't include modeling lingerie. Bisutti will continue her modeling career, but doesn't want to give girls the impression that it's "okay for them to walk around and show their bodies in lingerie to guys." So... what exactly did she think she'd be doing when she accepted the job?? {Vogue UK}
