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."

Taylor Swift Is 2012’s Worst-Selling Celebrity Cover Model

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News, Sales

Taylor SwiftShe may sell millions of copies of her albums and make quite a profit in merchandising, but Taylor Swift unfortunately can't get enough people to buy the magazines she's on.

In the Vogue department, Swift's cover sold 329,371 copies - a little more than the fashion glossy's six-month average - which does not impress much in comparison to Adele's March cover with 410,343 copies.

Her November Glamour issue sold 443,000 copies, but she couldn't beat out the less-famous former Hills star Lauren Conrad, whose cover sold over 500,000. The magazine's editor-in-chief Cindi Leive tried to reason why the huge star's magazine didn't sell so well: "here may have been a little hiccup for her right around the [One Direction] relationship. But it’s nothing a pro can’t come back from. I’d put money on her for the long run."

Swift's cover for Cosmopolitan turned out to be the magazine's worst seller of the year, selling 20% below its six-month average.

Jordin Sparks+ Singer Jordin Sparks explains her fashion choice for the American Music Awards last month. While it's good to be adventurous when it comes to clothes, it's also good to invest in a fashionably adventurous stylist.

+ Tory and Chris Burch have finally settled their lawsuit. Not surprisingly, the former married couple are keeping tight-lipped about the details of the settlement.

+ Vogue shares the top fifteen best fashion quotes of 2012. Naturally, Karl Lagerfeld and Kristen Stewart dominate the list.

Items Du Jour: Kate Upton on Vogue UK, Britney in Christopher Kane

Jessica Chastain on 'W'+ Kate Upton is slowly climbing up the ladder to supermodel status. The American model - known previously for her swimwear work - has landed her first Vogue UK cover, shortly after having appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia.

+ Britney Spears recently showed up to an X Factor event wearing vintage Christopher Kane, although I'm not sure if I'm digging the floral and lace patterns on leather.

+ Anderson Cooper revealed that he wears the same pairs of jeans during his everyday wear and that he doesn't wash them for six months at a time. When he does, he washes them in the shower.

+ Jessica Chastain takes over all three variant covers of January's W, the Art Meets Fashion edition. Posing for photographer Rineke Dijkstra and artists Chantal Joffe and Geoge Condo, the actress looks stunning in the released photos of the covers and editorial.

Quote of the Day: Documentarian on Anna Wintour

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities

Anna Wintour and a Furby

"The person we met was really unrelated to the popular myth, although she did wear Prada. We experienced someone accessible, smart and fuzzy. I kept waiting for the ice princess, but instead we got a Furby."

- Fenton Bailey, the co-director of the HBO documentary In Vogue: The Editor's Eye, describes his first impression of Anna Wintour.

Annie Leibovitz Shoots ‘Les Miserables’ Cast for Vogue

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Editorials

'Les Miserables' cast, shot by Annie Leibovitz

As if there wasn't enough publicity for Tom Hooper's upcoming film adaptation of Les Miserables, Vogue just had to have noted fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz capture the cast for their glossy pages. Admittedly, the content is right up Leibovitz's dark, dreamy alley, but they all basically look like the film's posters - with a more elaborate backdrop. Well, maybe except for the fact that Anne Hathaway does actually look like a dying prostitute (seen after the jump) in these photos.

The editorial - which also features Amanda Seyfriend, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Isabella Allen - will appear in Vogue's December issue, clearly to coincide with the film's December 25 release date.

Items Du Jour: Ralph Lauren Casts Plus-Size Model, Rashida Flaunts It

George Michael and Kate Moss+ After having caused previous controversy with their Photoshop-happy campaigns, Ralph Lauren has hired plus-size model Robyn Lawley for their upcoming campaign. The 23 year-old size 8 model has previously been published in Vogue Italia and French Elle.

+ George Michael and Kate Moss prove that they're besties on next month's French Vogue cover, which looks more like a paparazzi shot than a major fashion publication's cover.

+ Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones leaves the laughs at home for her Flaunt photo shoot, in which she trades her girl-next-door image for that of a Victoria's Secret model.

+ What do you do if you're Adele and a major label like Burberry asks you to be the face of their next campaign, yet you can't wear any of their clothes? Easy! You demand that they create some plus-size styles or the deal is a no go.

Items Du Jour: Rihanna on Vogue, Lana Del Rey for H&M

Miley Cyrus+ Angelina Jolie was photographed on her way to meeting Turkish leaders to discuss the crisis in Syria looking like she just walked off the runway. Or perhaps maybe she just borrowed the loose, flowing, ground-length gown from her latest film, Maleficent.

+ Elsewhere, Miley Cyrus was snapped up wearing a black crop top with a pair of pants that could easily have been her pajamas; however, she strangely seems to be pulling the look off. Perhaps this is the magical work of her new, daring 'do?

+ Avid Twitter poster Rihanna broke her own news that she'll be covering Vogue a second time; Annie Leibovitz is again set to photograph the singer for the fashion glossy.

+ H&M released a behind-the-scenes video of the upcoming Lana Del Rey campaign, which was shot as a music video of the singer covering "Blue Velvet." Of course, because no one wants to be all that original these days, it looks very much like the David Lynch film of the same name.

Items Du Jour: Lana Del Rey Covers GQ, Katie Holmes Opens Up About Designing

Gisele Bundchen for ESPRIT+ "Born to Die" singer Lana Del Rey covers British GQ in nothing more than jewelry. Dubbed Woman of the Year by the men's magazine, her editorial on the inside of the glossy is apparently just as risque.

+ David Sims photographed Gisele Bundchen for the latest ESPRIT campaign, which features Mrs. Brady in a cool, tailored suit coupled with tousled sex hair (because that's totally how everyone wears their locks to work).

+ Singer of the infectious "Call Me Maybe" hit, Carly Rae Jepsen, is expanding her empire by modeling for Wet Seal. To celebrate the union, the clothing store is giving shoppers a chance to win a shopping spree with Jepsen, as well as tickets to see her and Justin Bieber in concert.

+ Katie Holmes opens up to WWD about her fashion career, in which she claims that she's not afraid to fail (although anyone with a hefty divorce settlement from Tom Cruise would also probably not be too afraid to waste money).
