The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Costume Institute Renamed After Anna Wintour, Kanye West Pleads For A Kim Kardashian Vogue Cover, and A First Look at Rita Ora for Adidas
By The Fashion Bomb Staff


• Much like Diddy (formerly P.Diddy, Puffy, and Puff Daddy) The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Instute wing is getting a name change. And whose namesake might those hallowed halls bear? None other than Anna Wintour‘s! Solidifying her role as industry overlord, the Costume Institute will now be known as the Anna Wintour Costume Center. The curatorial department will still go by its original name. There’s no question Ms. Wintour is deserving of such an honor. She’s a trustee of the museum, has co-chaired 15 benefits for the Costume Institute since 1995, and has raised about $125 million for the Met over the years. Congrats to Anna! (WWD)


• Editors, buyers, and bloggers are going to have to put in extra work to get to Alexander Wang‘s Fall 2014 show on time this season, as the designer has announced that he will hold his runway presentation at Duggal Greenhouse at 63 Ship Ways Avenue–right around the corner from the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Wang says this is a one-time location change, adding that the venue “corresponds very well to this season’s creative concept.” (WWD)

Rita Ora x Adidas Preview

• The endorsements just keep rolling in for Rita Ora. She’s already fronted campaigns for DKNY and Madonna‘s Material Girl line, and working on a lipstick and nail color line for Rimmel London. Now, the crooner can add “athleticwear designer” to her list of accolades, as she’s teamed with Adidas on a collection, which we finally got a first look at yesterday. She posted two snaps of a pair of white kicks from the upcoming collection, which have a rosegold capped toe. Are you feeling the shoes? (Rita Ora Facebook)


Chanel Iman Teen Vogue Intern

• In what is the largest intern settlement to date, Elite Model Management has agreed to dole out $450,000 to over 100 unpaid interns who sued the company for having to work over 40 hour weeks with no pay. Each intern will receive at least $700 in compensation. (Vogue UK)

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Attend The Kardashian Christmas Bash

Kanye West is still in hot pursuit of that Kim Kardashian Vogue cover. According to Page Six, the rapper was spied lunching with Anna Wintour at the Polo Lounge at the Bevery Hills Hotel on Friday. “They were in a corner booth, very intense,” a source said. “He was talking nonstop. She did not get a word in edgewise.” If only someone would petition this hard for that Kerry Washington Vogue cover we’ve been waiting on for about a billion years… (Page Six)

lena dunham vogue
•Speaking of Vogue covers, Lena Dunham covers the glossy’s February 2014 issue. Thoughts on the shot? (Talking with Tami)

• If you loved Lupita Nyong’o‘s Golden Globes Ralph Lauren look, and have $7000 to blow, you can get her look, which is up for pre-order now at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. (Daily Mail)

    I guess Kanye wants to help Kim fulfill the items in her bucket list,how sweet *insert sarcasm * He should give it up already, jeez!

  2. heyyall says:

    Rita or, is so lame to me; Why do ppl like her.. And this might sound silly but did Lupita Nyong’o bleach her eyes?!?! (if that’s possible) they seem a lot lighter now..

  3. DenimJunkieKidd says:


    I don’t thinks it’s possible to bleach/lighten a persons eyes without causing blindness lol. She could just have on contacts or the flash made them appear lighter….. I feel like most of these internships should be paid, I can tell you from personal expierence that interns put in serious work!

  4. fav1 says:

    I actually like Kim K. but I feel like there are other celebrities that are more creditable who should grace the cover before she’s even considered. He is asking for much this year for her with walk a fame star too geesh! I’m not too keen on Alexander Wang coming downtown brooklyn smh too much traffic as it is! ugh!

  5. Anonymous says:

    I am with Kerry Washington. She is timeless and she rarely misses a beat on the red carpet.

  6. Katie says:

    If they gave that racist dunham a cover (whose show I will never entertain) they might as well give kim one. And they wonder why Paris Vogue is the fashion bible.

    Rita Ora, is never going to happen.

  7. Nicole says:

    @Heyyall Kill yourself for that comment..people say the dumbest sh*t

  8. Dion says:

    I’m sorry. “Bleach her eyes?” I. Um. huh?

  9. Shirley says:

    What’s this obsession with Kim being on Vogue cover? Is this gonna make her more popular/famous than now? Is she gonna be a gabillionaire? Is it gonna solidify her in the fashion/entertainment world? Will he get the best sex from her? WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL????!!!! Why doesn’t he let Anna make up her mind about Kim on Vogue. DAMN!

  10. BougieHippie says:

    Great download. I enjoyed all the stories today!

  11. Pilar says:

    If Kim K is on the cover of Vogue, I will not buy this magazine because not even conceive that Anna Wintour accept this absurd idea. imagine it me sick.

  12. Anon says:

    I’d rather see Lupita Nyong’o on the cover of Vogue. Kanye is just acting too desperate.

  13. No Hose Allowed says:

    I hope Miss Wintour directed Kanye to the editor of Hustler Magazine.

  14. heyyall says:

    No u kill yourself lame @nicole.. it was joke

  15. Anonymous says:

    Vogue is becoming a JOKE! Someone needs to relace Anna quick. She is so out of touch with whats going on. If Kim gets a vogue cover I’M DONE!!

  16. tmorgan says:

    Lupita Nyong’o, who is styling this girl…Move over Olivia Pope. I have no words for how gorgeous this girl is. And, what is Vogue about Kanye and Kim. Over coats and torn jeans, really? Vogue, has it come to this?
