Style Buzz: Michelle Obama’s New Yorker Cover, PETA Effs Up

  • Michelle Obama graces another cover — this time, The New Yorker’s style issue. The mag pokes fun at the kerfluffle surrounding Michelle’s bare arms with three doodles of Michelle strutting down a runway, arms covered up! [Mrs. O]
  • PETA strikes again! The animal rights group ripped a sleeve on the Balenciaga gown worn by French Vogue editor, Carine Roitfeld, while aiming for her goat fur coat. I don’t condone assaulting people in public, but if you are going to go after someone, ruin the correct couture, at least. []
  • Eighties-inspired two tone lipstick, yay or nay? [Refinery29]
  • Brittany Snow will play Lily Van Der Woodsen — or, as she was known back in the ’80s, Lily Rhodes — on the new “Gossip Girl” spin-off, “Lily.” Rumor has it, No Doubt will play on the pilot airing May 11th! [E! Online]
  • The British are coming! The UK chain store Topshop (think, a better-quality Forever 21 with a sexy Hugh Dancy accent) will open in New York City on April 2. Buy your plane tickets now, ladies! []
