.Upon the request of the woman upstairs (yes, Anna Wintour) Vogue editor and former AVENUE cover star Hamish Bowles, the man of many outfits, donned his very best (a gold Mugler suit and Christian Louboutin kicks) and headed to Newark, New Jersey to audition for the upcoming season of X-Factor with Britney Spears’ “Oops…I Did it Again” ready to go. The latest project from Simon Cowell brings one of the UK’s most beloved reality competitions State-side and after seeing Bowles wail out some karaoke at this years Fashion’s Night Out, it seems Wintour was inspired to send him to the wolves.
You may recall Hamish sporting mesh basketball shorts for a shoot out with Amare Stoudemire or venturing into the wilderness for a camping adventure; all in the name of Vogue. This is just the latest in stunts that everyone’s favorite dandy has been put up to, and like always, he attacked the challenge with chutzpah.

You can read the story in the latest issue of Vogue and don’t forget to check out X-Factor, premiering tonight on Fox. (Sadly, Hamish didn’t make the cut)
