Tobey Maguire for Prada

Miuccia Prada, queen of geek chick, has found the quintessential dandy in Tobey Maguire. The 35-year-old actor dressed up, wearing the designer's slim sweater, savvy turtleneck and tailored three-button jacket.

Tobey was the poster boy for Prada's 2011 fall-winter ad campaign. Shot in New York, photographer David Sims showed us another side of Maguire: a refined, cool sophisticate cut from the same cloth as Carey Grant.

The new look fits him like a tee. It echos his upcoming role as Nick Carraway, an Ivy League bond salesman, in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby (2012). 

It will be a good year for Maguire. In the works is Ang Lee's Life of Pi (2012) and a producing stint for Rock of Ages (2012): a film adaptation of the 2006 Broadway musical. The cast looks promising. Russell Brand. Alec Baldwin. Catherine Zeta-Jones. Paul Giamatti. Anne Hathaway.... Oh, and some guy named Tom Cruise.

Is it just me or does he look like Elyse from ANTM season 1 in the last shot?
