HAPPY DAYS: English actor and model Simon Woods sat front row at Christopher Bailey’s Burberry show on Saturday and said he was working on a radio documentary about happiness for BBC Radio 4, which airs in February. “I was tired of seeing so many depressed faces on the tube,” said Woods, who majored in English at Oxford University. “I’m asking if there is another way of looking at life in the credit crunch.” George Craig, lead singer of Yorkshire band One Night Only, looked more uncomfortable than happy walking the runway for the first time. Craig is also the face of the brand’s spring campaign by Mario Testino, and he said it suits him because it’s all “very natural, just like me, with no hair and makeup.” Despite the modeling sideline, Craig is busy writing a new album, due out in the summer.
