Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei in Boy by Band of Outsiders fall ad campaign

August 10, 2009 | 12:03 pm

I just received an e-mail from the folks over at Band of Outsiders with some links to images from the fall ad campaign for its women's collection, Boy by Band of Outsiders, and it looks like designer Scott Sternberg and Oscar-winning actress Marisa Tomei had a play date at the Chateau Marmont (and the Bar Marmont next door) on Thursday.

The shots show Tomei cavorting in the kitchen, carhopping in the parking lot and generally making mischief in the hallways and driveways of the Los Angeles landmark. Yeah, at first they kind of reminded me of the spring campaign (which featured actress-comedian Sarah Silverman slouching around Canter's Deli on Fairfax), but Tomei looks a little (OK, a lot) more laid back and a lot more natural in the West Coast preppy-cool clothes.

And if they gave Academy Awards for the best-supporting footwear in an advertising campaign? I'd give the statuette to those stilettos (Manolo Blahnik for Band of Outsiders) she's wearing.
