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."

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!

Items Du Jour: ‘Spring Breakers’ Collection, Kim in Maternity Wear

Madonna+ This month's latest Elle cover model, Nicki Minaj did her best impression of a vapid fashion journalist humorously asking all the wrong questions to herself.

+ Madonna made a statement with her boy scouts outfit when she presented a GLAAD award to Anderson Cooper. In a nearly 12-minute long speech, the singer lashed out at the scouts organization for its gay ban.

+ Though Harmony Korine's latest film Spring Breakers doesn't even hit theaters until Friday, there has been enough buzz generated about it to get Opening Ceremony to collaborate with the filmmakers on an exclusive summer collection.

+ Kim Kardashian has been spotted in many tight-fitting outfits, despite her very pregnant state; however, the reality star was spotted at the premiere of her new movie Temptation in a chic black lace look appropriate for an expectant mother.

+ It's been rumored that Kate Upton will be covering the June issue of Vogue, which would be her first time on the front of the American fashion glossy.

Kanye West Wants Kim Kardashian in Vogue

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Rumors

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye West is desperate for Anna Wintour to like Kim Kardashian. The "Mercy" rapper - who is expecting his first child with the 32-year-old reality TV star in early July - is trying to convince the fashion editor to put the brunette beauty on the US cover of Vogue.

A source told Star magazine that while Anna thinks that Kanye, 35, is "terrific," she thinks his girlfriend of almost one year is "the worst thing since socks and sandals." The insider also claimed that the style icon said Kim would appear in the esteemed fashion magazine "over her dead body."

Anna allegedly ignored Kim at New York Fashion Week last September and the insider claims the only way Kim has a chance of appearing in the American version of the magazine is in a feature introducing her newborn baby to the world.

Kim and Anna's feud has been well documented in the past. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was banned from attending the star-studded Met Gala in New York last year with Kanye because Anna believed she "didn't fit the bill."
