Brazilian tabloids are reporting that Madonna is dating one of the models form her W photo shoot. He's only 20, his name is Jesus, and he will supposedly be her New Year's date. That Madge -- such a showoff. [Made in Brazil]

Prince William (pictured) has a new beard. He's being nicknamed Prince "Hairy" and was also runner-up for Beard of the Year Award. [People]

Meanwhile, in other bearded news, Portland, Oregon, has been named the most bearded city in America. If they're looking for a leader, we know a certain bearded prince who could command their scruffy legions. [kempt]

Girogio Armani is, once again, campaigning for a good cause. This time for “Prevention Guides,” a new series of health books that will sell with
Corriere della Sera, Italy’s most-read newspaper, in January. “I think that nowadays prevention should be considered a way to show love to yourself and to those who love you,” Armani says. [WWD]

American Apparel is being slapped with another lawsuit. This time from ex–chief of European operations Bernhard-Axel Ingo Brake. He's accusing the label of shady European employment practices, unhonored bonus promises, and tax evasion. AA is, naturally, counter-suing Brake for embezzlement and the hiring of a mistress for a high-level position in Switzerland. The claws are out, kids. [WWD]
