James Franco was spotted outside the Claridge’s Hotel in London. The actor wore a pair of Joe’s Brixton in Daumier with a burgundy leather jacket. Here is an interesting fact about these jeans. They are actually made of chambray. Being lighter weight would make these jeans perfect for when the weather warms up, especially if you cannot part with dark denim.
Are you readers interested in seeing OZ: The Great and Powerful? It is one that has been on top of my list since they announced the making of it. I will admit that I have never been a huge fan of the classic starring Judy Garland, but the melancholic feel of this one has grabbed my attention.

7 For All Mankind and James Franco recently hosted an evening for Hollywood insiders for an exclusive screening of the film, The Death of Natalie Wood, which was Franco’s inspiration behind the Spring/Summer collection. Celebrities like Alexander Skarsgard and Ryan Phillippe were in attendance at the event, which was hosted at Chateau Marmont.
Earlier in the evening, guests were treated to a preview of Franco’s Rebel exhibition, sponsored by 7 For All Mankind, which was a homage to James Dean’s film, Rebel without A Cause. Artists like Terry Richardson, Ed Ruscha, Harmony Korine, Paul McCarthy, Damon McCarthy attended.
While the presentation of The Death of Natalie Wood marks the finale of the Spring/Summer 2012 collaboration between James Franco and 7 For All Mankind, Franco has signed on to shoot the Fall/Winter 2012 collection as well. As 7 FAM’s President, Barry Miguel commented, “James Franco has been a wonderful creative partner for our brand. His ability to capture fashion in a unique, premium and sophisticated way in unparalleled and we are thrilled to continue to support his artistic endeavors.”
I can’t wait to see what Franco comes up with for next season. Check out some of the photos from the event below and you can view the short film here.
Dave Franco was spotted on the set of his movie Now You See Me in Manhattan, New York. He wore a pair of Diesel jeans for the taping. This is one of those cases when I wonder if these jeans are part of his personal closet or are part of the movie wardrobe. They look like something he would wear himself.
I have only seen Dave in one film, Charlie St. Cloud. I know that he is in 21 Jump Street and he has quite a few coming out as well. Compared to his brother (James Franco) and going by his resume, he is more comedic than his brother. Then again, James had great comedic timing in Pineapple Express.

A couple of months ago, 7 For All Mankind announced that James Franco would be not only starring in, but also directing their upcoming Spring ad campaign. The newest installment from the collaboration between James and the brand, will be a mini film series.
The series which will be released in 10 episodes, has a 70s style vibe. As James explained, “The look of the film and the clothes feels very Seventies. We shot right on the beach and drove up the PCH [Pacific Coast Highway], so I guess you could say it’s a vintage 1970’s California dreamy feel. The movies that I cut together have a lot of weird double exposures and super-imposed images over other images, so it’s a real, I guess you could say, trip.”
While the first episode will not be released until February 15th on YouTube, you can get a preview of what’s to come by checking out some of the ads from the campaign below and check out a preview video here.
