Chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen became a Grandmaster at age 13, and at age 19, he’s not only ranked as the world’s number one player, but he’s also taking on the fashion industry—co-starring in the latest G-Star Raw ads with Liv Tyler and sharing the red carpet with the Hollywood beauty during New York Fashion Week. “She’s nice,” said Magnus of the actress, who showed off her signature rocker-chic style in one of her favorite pairs of G-Star Raw jeans at the brand’s spring 2011 collection in N.Y.C. on Tuesday. “I’ve been wearing them about a year,” said Liv, who admitted that after doing sit-down interviews all afternoon, the back end of her jeans had acquired a “lowish, saggy butt.” And when it came to her denim co-model Magnus, she had nothing but praise. “First of all he’s such a bad ass. I said, ‘You’re a bad MF’,” explained Liv, who not only fronts G-Star’s campaign but also serves as a muse for the brand‘s newest collection. “He had never modeled before ever in his life. We were on a roof in Miami and it was 110 degrees. And he came out and was calm and just stood there and [Tyler scowls with attitude]” and I was, like, “Magnus. . . Wow!”’ And does the chess star, wearing the company’s denim head-to-toe, like G-star? “I’m not a fashion expert,” says Magnus. “But I’m really comfortable in their clothes.” –Jeffrey Slonim
