STILL A BIG NAME: After two seasons with Kate Moss, Belstaff decided to change up its fall ad campaign, selecting lesser-known models but going with a big-budget photographer: Steven Meisel, who had never before shot for Belstaff. A firm spokeswoman described the ads as "glamour-chic" and confirmed the company has already tapped Meisel to shoot the spring campaign. The new ads will appear internationally, including in Elle, W, GQ and Vanity Fair in the U.S. — A.W.
LAYING AN EGG?: Former Stuff editor in chief Dan Bova may have seen his magazine evaporate after only a few months in charge, but Bova — now installed at Maxim with a title yet to be determined — can take comfort in an old side project, "Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead," coming back to life, so to speak. In January, about four years after Bova cowrote the campy horror flick with a buddy from film school, the movie is expected to premiere at a cinema near you in New York. The plot, as summarized in the official materials, centers on "mass-exterminated chickens possessed by the souls of massacred Native Americans, who then take revenge on unsuspecting fast-food patrons and workers."
