Actor Jason Schwartzman isn’t only the latest celebrity to model for Band of Outsiders’ look book, he will also sport a Band of Outsiders wardrobe in his role on the new HBO show “Bored to Death.” The label is notoriously off-limits to people without slight builds, but it fits Schwartzman to a T. “The clothes are my favorite, fit great, and I just love them,” he said at the label’s presentation on Saturday. As for the look book, he said, “I didn’t even think of it as modeling. It was just Scott [Sternberg] and me having fun for an afternoon.”

Kirsten Dunst, who showed up to support her friend Sternberg, was fresh from shooting a video with Takashi Murakami that is destined for London’s Tate gallery. “He is the sweetest man,” gushed the blonde actress, who donned a pink wig and a Japanese schoolgirl getup for the video. “He was so humble. When you meet an artist that is so famous you almost expect him to be egotistical, but he was so nice.” Next up for the actress is a turn behind the camera — she will be shooting her own short film.

Meanwhile, Rachel McAdams was making fashion week rounds with Vogue’s Sally Singer. “She is showing me the ropes,” said the actress, before being introduced to Dunst for the first time.
