• The Anna Wintour Costume Center is officially opening May 5th, and who was tapped to cut the ribbon during the ceremony? None other than Ms. Wintour’s fave, First Lady Michelle Obama.

• Yesterday, Page Six reported a rumor that Lucky magazine was on the Condé Nast chopping block, and would be folding in the coming months. Today, we hear from Editor-in-Chief Eva Chen that this is simply untrue. Chen sent an e-mail to quell her staff’s fears, reassuring them that their jobs were still in tact, and that Lucky isn’t going anywhere. “Lucky‘s numbers have been rising. They were up 20 percent for their May issue, and have had a 3% increase in subscribers from December 2012-2013.This is all due to YOUR amazing work and the visibility, passion, and life you have all breathed into this magazine,” Chen wrote. “So, keep up the great work — and just know that haters are going to hate.” She signed the e-mail with a link to the song for Diddy‘s  “Bad Boy For Life,” which says, “We ain’t going nowhere/ we ain’t going nowhere/ we can’t be stopped now.” (WWD)

• A forensic web expert is claiming the text message allegedly sent by Terry Richardson to model Emma Applebaum, in which he attempts to exchange a Vogue spread for sex, is fake. The sleuth tracked down the Facebook account associated with the message, and claims he found it was in violation of the social media site’s authenticity rules, and that it was set up by a bogus gmail address not affiliated with Mr. Richardson. What does Appleton think of all this? “If the account is fake, then it needs to be removed. If it is real, then he is a hideous human,” she said before deleting her Twitter acount. (Page Six)



• The first campaign image for Lorde‘s M.A.C cosmetics collection is here! As WWD reports, the collection is due out June 5th, and two of the products that will be apart of the range, a deep purple lipstick shade called “Pure Heroine” and their Penultimate eyeliner in black, are both featured on Lorde in the campaign. They will retail for $16, and $19.50, respectively. What do you think of the shot? (WWD)
