Our favorite Monday rumor: That actress Parker Posey is in strong consideration to be the new face of Marc by Marc Jacobs. If true, it means Ms. Posey is following the footsteps of M.I.A, Lily Cole, Jessica Stam, and Querelle - remember her? - as the bleached-out poster girl for our favorite brand, as captured by Juergen Teller. If false - well, let's face it, it probably is false, because we never get rumors right over here. Do we? ;) Gawker will be relieved to know that the rumor makes no mention of her apparently Satanic puppy. Meanwhile, we're relieved to hear that despite her front-row appearance at the Marc by Marc show this February, Fergie has not been mentioned for the campaign.

Parker Posey Can't Keep Up with Fashion, Says She 'Needs to Make More of an Effort'
Rachel Comey is not usually one of those shows that has a celeb packed front row. Or any celebs in the front row for that matter. Devoted editors, buyers and Brooklyn cool girls a plenty but celebs? Not so much. So imagine our delight when one of our favorite celebs, the Party Girl herself, Parker Posey, plunked herself down a few seats over from us at last night's show (runway pix and review to come shortly, don't worry). While waiting to interview Comey backstage after her show, Posey joined the line of fashion editors. "So, is this where we line up?" Posey asked me. I resisted my urge to yell "Air Raid!" and seized on the opportunity to turn my recorder on the incredibly down-to-earth actress first. "OK," she shrugged, jokingly. Only, somehow she ended up interviewing me instead.
