+ 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.
You know that V has got to be out of ideas for its cover if it resorts to featuring Rihanna and Kate Moss in their birthday suits. Yawn. Haven't we seen this before? Mario Testino shot the covers for this "Dynamic Duos" issue - on newsstands February 28 - one of which Kate's leg could
eerily easily double as Rihanna's arm.
What do you think of V's latest issue - over it or love it?

-- With her trademark red lips, it's about time a cosmetic company snatched Gwen Stefani up as their celebrity spokesperson! The singer-turned-fashion designer signed a contract with L'Oreal Paris; her full commercial will air during the Golden Globes.
-- Speaking of lips, Lindsay Lohan was spotted at the gym again (better there than at alcohol-infested locations), only this time her mouth looked detachable. I wonder if she's taking cues from her friend Kim Kardashian and blaming it on the flu...
-- Proenza Schouler released their second ever ad campaign. They're like the Givenchy ads, but with a splash of color. Thoughts?
-- If you're the least bit in love with fashion and you live in London, you ought to see Daphne Guinness speak at the Royal Academy on the 27th of the month. There's no other lecture on earth that could be greater than the psychology of clothes: "I once read an article in which a psychologist explained that, when we say we 'have nothing to wear,' it really means that we have nothing that expresses who we want to be that day," said the RA events and lectures manager Dr. Alison Bracker.
One thing is for sure when you book Lady Gaga for your magazine cover: you’ll be paying for plenty of skin.
Gaga covers V Magazine this month as her version of the Statue of Liberty alongside Marc Jacobs. Dubbed the New York Issue, the “V” is written in bubblegum—naturally.
While some may be outraged at Gaga’s impersonation, I’d have to say that it’s not nearly as shocking as other issues and figures she’s tackled, on top of the fact that this is a magazine that once featured a topless Adriana Lima whose chest could be seen by scratching off the “V” letter.

Not unlike her fellow Victoria's Secret angel Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima is showing off her incredible post-baby body as well. Only with Lima, she's posing topless for the cover of V Magazine Spain. In what is appropriately titled "The Sexy Body Issue," Mario Sorrenti photographs Lima with a cute knitted Dior cardigan that she doesn't care to use. Also not surprising is the fact that you can barely see her extremely airbrushed face (not that she needs it!). The issue goes on sale July 4th, with four other models gracing the front of the magazine. Advertisements for V also tout the covers' oh-so-wonderful scratch-off feature.

- Despite the fact that her face has graced plenty of magazine covers and campaign advertisements, Scarlett Johansson reveals in her V Magazine interview that she goes into hair and makeup “like this perfectly prepared sausage.” Does she really think that we’re going to buy that bologna?
- It was only a matter of time after seeing Lady Gaga sport those McQueen lobster claw platforms that we knew she was destined to don the heel-less Nina Ricci creations. Voila! The chic songstress was spotted wearing them at the Museum of Modern Art. That lady sure nows how to pick her shoes accordingly.
- Model Agyness Deyn joins forces with her sister Emily for a T-shirt line in collaboration with Uniqlo’s UT Project. Catch the designs quickly—the line is oh-so-surprisingly a limited-edition.
- Fashionista Vanessa Traina is rumored to have been snapped up in Paris by photographer Benoit Peverelli for Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Fall 2010 campaign.
- So we knew that the Mulleavy sisters of Rodarte always called themselves losers, but we never honestly knew how interesting they really are… until now. Kate recently revealed that her first knitting project was for a girl’s pet lizard. I don’t know about you, but that seems like it’s got to take a lot of talent—a lizard?
Does Natalie Portman ever look bad? I didn’t think so, but someone at V magazine felt compelled enough to ask the actress how she feels about plastic surgery.
“I would hope not,” she responds, when questioned whether she would submit to what seems to be a Hollywood standard these days. She does, however, admit to thinking about approaching 40 (despite having over a decade until she reaches that hill): “You see people who were stars five years ago and already they’re waning. As actresses approach 40, it starts becoming really, really difficult.”
Photographer Mario Testino shot the images, which recall an androgynous look for the woman who still looked hot without her hair. In the images (seen after the jump), Portman evokes Lady Gaga’s pantsless trend in one and rocks a bustier with some major shoulder bling in another.
The magazine’s Winter 2009/2010 issue is on newsstands now.
