The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Roberto Cavalli Clears Up Giorgio Armani Beef, Jordin Sparks to Release A Fragrance, and Peep The New Ad for Just Cavalli’s New Fragrance

• Roberto Cavalli tells WWD that he meant no shade to Giorgio Armani when he claimed the Camera Nazionale della Moda would “not go against the wishes of ‘Little King’ Armani,” and change the date of his Spring 2013 show. Cavalli instead blames the lamestream media for manufacturing a beef between the two designers. “They wanted to create problems,” he said. “It’s not with Armani that I have a problem. I knew from someone else that the show calendar was changed. Armani does what he likes to do, and that is completely right. It was the Camera Nazionale della Moda. They should tell me, not make me learn it from somebody else. I’m honored to be friends with [Armani.] I could tell you so many stories about our friendship.” (WWD)

Lady Gaga has been offered £3million to star alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in the upcoming Zoolander sequel. The singer and walking fashion experiment may play one of the points in a Hansel-Gaga-Zoolander love triangle. (The Sun)

• Jordin Sparks is the latest star to stamp her name on a fragrance. Come mid-November, the songstress will release ‘Ambition,’ whose notes include bitter orange and lemon zest, amongst other yummy smells. Hey, at least it’s not another celebrity clothing line! (WWD)

• Vogue has published an excerpt from Grace Coddington‘s memoir. It is as awesome as you’d expect. (Vogue)

 • Anna Wintour might automatically get a front row seat at any fashion show she attends, but when it came to Tuesday’s Presedential debate, the editrix was banished to the bleachers. Now she knows how I feel for the lion’s share of Fashion Week. (Page Six)

Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton has scored yet another feature in the Vogue’s November issue. The seven-page spread includes a profile on Upton, in which the magazine is careful to point out (in the most congratulatory of ways, naturally) that the 19-year-old –gasp!– actually eats full meals:  “… she’s not stick-thin. Upton makes a point of eating, sleeping, and exercising – a potential ambassador of fashion-model health, as she sees it. ‘I don’t want to starve myself,‘ she says. ‘I still want to hang out with my family and be a normal girl. You have to be confident, and that doesn’t mean starving yourself.'” Upton continues, “I think it’s important to look at magazines and think a healthy lifestyle is attainable. Now that the fashion industry likes the idea of me, I’m happy if I can have an influence.” (Vogue)
