Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: News

Bee Shaffer at this year's Met Gala

"I'm 5ft 5in and I have huge boobs, like I'm not going to wear the same thing as Karlie Kloss... I've never been fashion-forward, I'm not that interested in fashion. I kind of wear the same thing all the time or, I know it's cliched to say, but jeans and T-shirts."

- Bee Shaffer, the daughter of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, explains why she never followed in her mom's footsteps (despite looking fabulous at this year's Met Gala - photo featured above).

Kelly Osbourne “Disgusted” by Kimye’s ‘Vogue’ Backlash

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Editorials, News

Kelly Osbourne and Kim KardashianKelly 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 Praises Kim Kardashian

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Editorials

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on the cover of 'Vogue'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."

Quote of the Day: British ‘Vogue’ Editor on Thin Models

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News

Alexandra Shulman

"People always say 'Why do you have thin models? That's not what real people look like,' but nobody really wants to see a real person looking like a real person on the cover of Vogue... I think Vogue is a magazine that's about fantasy to some extent and dreams, and an escape from real life... People don't want to buy a magazine like Vogue to see what they see when they look in the mirror. They can do that for free... I get fed up with having to deal with the question of why are models thin, that sort of bores me."

- Alexandra Shulman, editor of Vogue UK, explains why you won't be seeing any real-sized models under her reign of the fashion glossy.

Items Du Jour: Anna Cozies Up to Kendall, Heidi for New Balance

Kendall Jenner and Anna Wintour+ Although Kanye West has campaigned for his fiancee Kim Kardashian to grace the coveted cover of Vogue, it looks like her half-sister Kendall Jenner might beat her to it, as she was seen next to Anna Wintour at the Topshop show for London Fashion Week.

+ Fashion designer Tom Ford expresses his bromance for Jay-Z with his latest collection, displaying his knock-off dress version of the rapper's own Tom Ford knock-off jersey.

+ Mulberry launched some photos of Cara Delevingne modeling their latest handbag collection, which also happens to be one that was made in collaboration with her!

+ She might not be on PETA's go-to list for "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" models anymore, but Khloe Kardashian made it clear in New York yesterday that she's still not wearing animal pelts, wearing a faux fur coat with the words "F**k Yo Fur" in red paint on the back.

Kanye West Angry That Kim Didn’t Score ‘Vogue’ Cover

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Rumors

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye 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."

Items Du Jour: Britney Goes Platinum, Tyra’s War on “Plus-Size” Term

Kim Kardashian+ The Kardashian trio unveiled their latest clothing collection, which they launched in collaboration with British retailer Lipsy. Unsurprisingly, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe model off their floral, curve-hugging dresses in the adverts for the line (perhaps it's the only way they'd be able to sell it?). Major kudos that they're not of the typical sequined and glittery New Year's Eve dress fare, but at the same time, I can't imagine women flocking to the stores (or in Americans' cases, online store) for a summery frock when they're looking for something festive.

+ Britney Spears surprised fans with a Twitter photo showcasing her new hair color: platinum blonde. Love it or leave it?

+ Tyra Banks seems to have joined Jennifer Lawrence in the war against negative body image words, claiming that she refuses to utter "plus-size," instead opting for "fiercely real." Not sure how quickly the latter will catch on, but it's a start!

Miley Cyrus Loses Vogue Cover After VMA Performance

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News

Miley Cyrus at this year's VMAMiley Cyrus' controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) has lost her the chance to appear on the cover of Vogue magazine.

The 20-year-old singer's duet with Robin Thicke featured Miley twerking and gyrating up against the R&B singer and using a foam finger in a sexually suggestive way at the ceremony in New York City last month made headlines across the world. One person watching watching who didn't enjoy it was Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who has decided to drop shots of Miley intended for the cover of the December issue of the fashion bible because of her "distasteful" performance.

"Anna found the whole thing distasteful. She decided, based on Miley's performance, to take the cover in a different direction," a source said.

Miley was seen on stage in a flesh-coloured, latex bikini, wagging her tongue and making sexual facial expressions while she danced up against Robin as they performed his hit "Blurred Lines."
