  • Anna Wintour has reportedly banned a nude 40-foot sculpture of designer Vivienne Westwood from the Metropolitan Museum Of Art’s upcoming punk exhibit. Wintour said the naked, styrofoam Westwood would be “a needless distraction” in “Punk: Chaos To Couture.” [Styleite]
  • Amanda Bynes allegedly got kicked out of a Planet Fitness gym in Harlem for smoking pot on 4/20. She also got her gym membership revoked. [RumorFix]
  • Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordan says she and Thurston Moore split because he’d been carrying on an affair and living a “double life.” How can you cheat on Kim Gordon?! [SPIN]
  • A possibly drunk Tara Reid allegedly threw a fit at an All Saints store in L.A. when the cashier wouldn’t give her a discount because of her, quote, “fame.” A rep told the New York Post that Reid usually gets discounts because she’s often photographed wearing All Saints. Well, no more! “She had to be escorted out by security,” said a source. [New York Post]

These photo of notoriously purse-lipped Anna Wintour laughing and smiling while walking around Milan are making me giddy with glee. It’s like in high school when you work so hard all year to make your stone-faced digital media teacher show any sign of emotion, and after 8 months of effort, you make a random MS Paint animation of your best friend’s leg falling off, and when you present it to the class he cracks a tiny little smile, and you’re like, “Yes! My work here is done,” and then you stop trying in class and end up getting a B-. Or was that just me? Anyway, Anna looks happy and stylish and generally awesome. My work here is done.

There are some things in life that just belong together. For instance: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne. I’ve only been to Walmart once, when I accompanied my then-boyfriend to purchase a Bear Grylls-brand camping knife, but the politically conservative megastore definitely did not strike me as the sort that would have any feasible tie to liberal-leaning publishing goliath and Anna Wintour employer Condé Nast. And yet! Beauty Scoop, Wal-Mart’s 12-page editorial “shopazine,” exists, and it features original pieces from editors of familiar Condé glossies like Allure, Glamour, and Lucky. Keep reading »

Anna Wintour’s Boyfriend Of 13 Years Defends Her Rumored Ambassadorship

“It’s a little bit of male chauvinism … It’s not just Anna — I see powerful women who really get slammed for being too forthright or running their business in a very determined way. If [former GE CEO] Jack Welch were being named as a potential ambassador, people wouldn’t be saying, ‘Oh, but hang on, Jack’s a little strict in the way he runs his companies.’”

Shelby Bryan, telecommunications pioneer, international business executive, venture capitalist (disclaimer, I just copy and pasted that straight off his Wikipedia page), and Anna Wintour‘s longtime boyfriend, doesn’t exactly confirm the rumor of his significant other’s potential ambassadorship, but he stands to defend the idea of it. I’m not surprised that Anna’s partner of 13 years appears to be intelligent, sensible, and savvy to the existence of gender inequality and double standards in the business arena. Because, you know, Nuclear Wintour does not suffer fools, and she certainly does not suffer foolish men. Just one question: does this Mr. Bryan have a son? [Racked]

  • The rumor that Anna Wintour is a candidate for a political ambassadorship in England is just that ― a rumor ― but that tiny detail certainly didn’t stop wig-wearer and professional wackjob Donald Trump from endorsing her. Live. On Fox News. Awkward. [Fashionista]
  • A new survey says that women apply approximately three times the amount of makeup during the holiday season that they do on an average day. I’m not surprised; everyone knows there’s no better time than Christmas and New Years to pile on the glitter eyeshadow. [Daily Mail]
  • Gender-bending model Andrej Pejic gets the Warhol treatment, posing as three of Andy’s favorite Factory girls (Nico, Edie Sedgwick, and Candy Darling, specifically) for Du Jour magazine. Says former Interview editor and Warhol friend Glenn O’Brien, “Andy would have been fascinated by Andrej.” We’re inclined to agree. [Refinery29]

Vogue Forever!

People who say they read Vogue for the articles are missing the point. Vogue is about fashion, fashion, fashion — and the keepers of the fashion pages are the fashion editors. A new HBO documentary, ”In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye,” chronicles Vogue fashion editors past and present. In addition to well-loved Grace Coddington, “In Vogue” features interviews with past editors Babs Simpson, Tonne Goodman, Phyllis Posnick, Jade Hobson, Carlyne Cerf, Polly Mellen and Camilla Nickerson.  We want to know everything about Polly Mellen, who refers to herself as “the spoiled brat of the fashion world.” The documentary airs December 6 on HBO. We’ll be watching!
