Kelly Osbourne is "disgusted" by the backlash against Kim Kardashian's Vogue cover.
The Fashion Police host doesn't think readers have the right to criticize the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and her rapper fiance, Kanye West, who front the latest edition of the magazine, after stars like Sarah Michelle Gellar have threatened to cancel their subscription to the prestigious publication.
In a blog post titled "MY THOUGHTS ON KIM AND KANYE ON VOGUE," she wrote: "People are even going so far as to cancel their subscriptions or bloggers [are] taking down the link to Vogue magazine. I don't want to even go into the awful things people have said about them. I find this disgusting. Regardless of whether or not you think Kim and Kanye are worthy enough [to] be on the cover ... it's not your decision to make. I do believe that would be up to [Editor] Anna Wintour."
Kelly urges fans to "be happy" for Kim and Kanye, who have nine-month-old daughter North together and are expected to wed this May.
Anna Wintour thinks that Kim Kardashian has "real guts."
The Vogue editor, who previously had a frosty relationship with the reality TV star despite being close friends with her fiancee Kanye West, claims she decided to put the Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty on the cover of the magazine's April edition because she admires Kim's "strength of character."
In her editor's letter for Vogue's Shape issue, the cover of which features the "New Slaves" hitmaker with his arms around Kim, who is wearing a strapless Lanvin wedding dress, the fashion icon, 64, writes, "There's barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven't been able to master, and for good reason. Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world's spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that."
Chrissy Teigen "cried like a baby" when she found out she was on the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue 2014.
The model graces the front of the magazine's most popular annual issue alongside models Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge and was overwhelmed when she found out she had been picked for the honor.
Her husband, singer John Legend, told TV show Good Morning America, "She was so excited, and it was a surprise because you never know who's going to be on the cover. These are all beautiful women. She's been in the issue for several years now, and every year it's been someone else. And this year it's her. We're very excited about it."
Chrissy took to Twitter to express her excitement, writing, "I mean what else is there to say. I just cannot believe it. What an honor. Never, ever, ever have felt this kind of pure joy. Crazy crazy [sic]."
Kanye West has allegedly confronted Anna Wintour after his fiancee Kim Kardashian was overlooked for the cover of Vogue magazine.
The 36-year-old rapper is reportedly "insulted" that the fashion editor, who he deems a close friend of his, picked filmmaker Lena Dunham over his beau for the cover of February's edition.
A source told RadarOnline that Kanye - who met with Anna at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge - argued that Kim is "just as talented as Lena, if not more so." The source added, "To Kanye it's insulting that his friend Anna is still refusing to even consider putting Kim on the cover of Vogue. He thinks Anna is listening to a bunch of 'know-nothing' corporate haters, as he put it. He's upset that Anna isn't willing to do him this personal favor and put Kim on the cover. Kanye knows that it's always been a huge dream of Kim's to be on the Vogue cover and Kanye wants to make it come true. If nothing else, Kanye is persistent."
With the horrid working conditions in the modeling world that still go unregulated, it's no wonder that models like Daria Werbowy decided to go on a hiatus. After taking time off to herself, the Canadian-bred beauty is returning to the industry.
"I took a risk a couple of years ago where I decided to do the minimal amount that I could get away with, because I physically and mentally couldn’t handle it anymore," she told this month's Harper's Bazaar, of which she is on the cover. "It's like, you have everything you want, what you dreamt of is coming true, you can’t buy anything else to make you happy, so then you think, Well, what else is there? And you have to leave."
The 30-year-old, who has been modeling since the age of 14, traveled the world on her time off and finally settled in Cork, Ireland, where she currently lives with her boyfriend. While she was coy when asked about him, Werbowy did admit, "Never in a million years did I think I’d be living there, but I never thought I'd be a successful model either. I never thought I'd fall in love with who I’m in love with."

Kim Kardashian was more professional on set than real models, according to photographer Bruce Weber.
The famed lensman insists the Keeping up with the Kardashians star was "wonderful" to work with and he chose to shoot her for the March cover issue of high fashion magazine DuJour because of her warm persona around staff on set.
Weber - who has snapped such icons as Cindy Crawford and the late Elizabeth Taylor - revealed that Kim is more favorable to work with than many other models and celebrities he has shot: "At first I wanted to photograph her mom, Kris Jenner. She [Kim] came to the set. I always judge the person I'm going to photograph by how they are with my assistants and my crew - she looked at each one and introduced herself. She was just so personable with everyone. She was wonderful."
Kate Hudson claims she "can't afford" designer clothes.
The Bride Wars actress - who has nine-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and two-year-old son Bingham with fiance Matt Bellamy - insists she has to borrow the high-end gowns she wears for the red carpet because they are too pricey for her budget.
"People think we own all these dresses. But we borrow them! I can't afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it's very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I'm not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable," she told Harper's Bazaar.
The 34-year-old beauty - who is worth a reported $38 million - credits her mother, Goldie Hawn, with her frugal ways: "My mom wasn't a big shopper for us. I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle."
+ Realizing that there is actually a profit in larger-sized clothing now that their business is failing, Abercrombie & Fitch - who raised controversy this year over refusing to sell larger sizes for women - has decided to eat their words and sell larger sizes to "compete against rivals."
+ Jennifer Lawrence - who joins Pamela Anderson and Kristin Chenoweth in getting pixie cuts this month - says that she cut her hair short because "it just couldn't get any uglier."
+ Alessandra Ambrosia is feeling a little nostalgic as this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show approaches, as she offers up a candid backstage photo of her and fellow Angel Adriana Lima from 13 years ago.
+ Mario Testino shot Winona Ryder for next month's cover of V magazine - and is she as stunning as ever! Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele styles her biker chick looks, which seem to reflect the character she portrays in her upcoming film, Homefront.
+ Because apparently people are still talking about Melissa McCarthy's ELLE Coat-ergate, the funny lady opened up more about her inspiration behind choosing the outerwear piece, claiming that she wanted it to look like "the walk of shame."
+ In addition to getting ready to launch their new fragrance - which is two years in the making - the Olsen twins revealed that they're planning to open up a flagship store for The Row in Los Angeles.
+ Despite the dozens of pleas from fans urging Jay-Z to take a stand against Barney's due to the store being in hot water over racial profiling, the rapper decided to launch his first fragrance there. The fragrance's - called Gold (because, Jay-Z) - launch will coincide with the unveiling of Jay-Z's "New York Holiday" collaboration.
+ Kristin Chenoweth - not unlike Pamela Anderson a few days earlier - decided to do away with most of her hair in favor of a pixie cut.
Upon the unveiling of Melissa McCarthy's ELLE cover - of which she shares newsstands with other covers featuring Reese Witherspoon and Penelope Cruz for the magazine's Women in Hollywood theme - fans were appalled to see the funny woman covered up in a coat. While thinner stars are styled in much less clothing, it seemed unfair to cover up a woman of a bigger size like McCarthy.
With that said, McCarthy broke her silence on the issue and revealed that sporting the coat was her choice after all: "What I found so bizarre is I picked the coat. I grabbed the coat. I covered up. I had a great black dress on but I thought, it comes out in November... I was so sick of summer. I live in Southern California. I was like, 'Give me a big coat to wear. Give the girl some cashmere!' I picked the coat. They were like, 'The dress is really great,' but I was like, 'Yeah, but look at this.'"
