For J. Crew‘s September catalog, the red-hot label booked some seriously chic models —The Romantics entire cast! Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel, Adam Brody, Malin Akerman, Rebecca Lawrence and Jeremy Strong are convincing as their role as tight-knit college friends, goofing off on set in glittering dresses piled high with J. Crew’s signature layers and stunning jewelry and neat, preppy suits from the label’s weddings and parties collection. Holmes (left) models a crystal briolette dress ($1,500) and an olive poplin workshirt ($72). Although the issue doesn’t hit J. Crew stores until September 10th—we’re already lusting after every single look. Check out the sneak peek and preview J. Crew’s September catalog cover in the gallery below, then watch the cast behind the scenes after the jump!

Katie Holmes and her costars from The Romantics got together in June for an adorable J. Crew photo shoot and here’s a behind the scenes look at their playful fun! Katie, Josh Duhamel, Adam Brody, Malin Akerman, Jeremy Strong, and Rebecca Lawrence look perfectly preppy and put together as they show off the cocktail designs collection. In the movie, they play five of a group of seven longtime friends brought together by a wedding of two members of the group. Katie’s big smile shines as she jumps on Josh’s back and we admit, we’re total suckers for Adam Brody. The movie comes out next month, but get a taste for the crew’s amazing chemistry in the always-covetable J. Crew dresses, suits, and more in the exclusive video above!

Malin Akerman, Josh Duhamel and Katie Holmes gathered for a photo shoot in N.Y.C. yesterday to promote their new film The Romantics, a rom-com about a group of college friends who reunite for a wedding on Long Island. The cast, which also includes Anna Paquin and Adam Brody, modeled pieces from J. Crew’s upcoming Fall 2010 collection. Akerman looked quirky cool in a sequined skirt and sleeveless hoodie. Holmes, who plays the maid of honor (and executive produced the film), dazzled in a glittery dusty pink sheath paired with a classic brown belt, while Duhamel looked like he stepped right out of the catalog in a slim suit and preppy striped tie. We’ve confirmed that the cast wears a lot of the label throughout the film (out this summer), and judging by this photo shoot, we can’t wait to see the rest of the film’s fashion!
