On Tuesday, Vogue hosted the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s annual fashion fund awards, bestowing glory and heaps of cash on one lucky designer. This year’s mega winner is Greg Chait, the man behind the collection The Elder Statesman. But while Greg may have won all the money, there was another battle being fought on the red carpet — it was the stylish against the total fashion messes. Let’s go to the photos…
Finally! Vogue has the first official look at Anne Hathaway’s wedding dress from her nuptials with longtime beau Adam Shulman this summer. The custom Valentino is poufy and gauzy and more cream puff than I expected from the chic Miss Anne.
Furious debate in the Frisky office ensued: Amelia thinks it’s pretty (save for the headpiece) and I say the whole thing looks like a mess of that fake spider web stuff you buy at Halloween. Of course, with such a gorgeous bride, you’re hardly looking at the dress. [Fashionista] [Photos: Vogue]
Kate Upton has weathered her fair share of critics in her brief career thus far, including an incident early this year in which Victoria’s Secret runway caster Sophia Neophitou cruelly said of the then-teenager’s look, “She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.” (Ever more depressing is the fact that some people think she’s fat, even likening her to, yes, a “squishy brick.”) And yet all signs point to Upton having the last laugh in this ongoing crusade: she scored two high-fashion magazine covers in the past two months alone, including the first issue of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, but her biggest upmarket break yet will hit the newsstands this week when she stars in a full Vogue spread.

A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. And I have too many vaginas around me at this point. Seriously, all I want is a guy to take me out and make me laugh for a good hour and take my ass back home. He doesn’t even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour. No one asks. Trust me on that. I’m waiting for the man who’s ballsy enough to deal with me. I’m going to wait, though. You always find the wrong shit when you go looking.”
– Rihanna complains to Vogue about the woes of dating as a super-famous lady, who I suspect has a harder time dating than A-list dudes do. But Jennifer Aniston made it work somehow. There’s hope for you yet, RiRi. (Also, was her direction for this photo shoot to look like she’s giving birth on stop of a haystack?) [Vogue]
Groups that work to eradicate domestic violence and help survivors are protesting magazine behemoth Conde Nast over the lastest cover of Vogue Hommes International, on which the cover model is being choked. Supermodel Stephanie Seymour is held from behind by hunky Marlon Teixeira, whose face is rapturous as one hand reaches around to choke her neck and the other reaches around to grab her breast.
