Ken & Barbie Have A Wedding Album
“Wedding photographer Beatrice de Guigne snapped Barbie and Ken on their (totally imaginary) happy day, and the results are awesome. Why? Because they casually poke fun at every wedding photo cliche ever. There’s the requisite close-up of the shoes, the shot of the couple dancing with a spotlight shining from behind them, the awkward and cheesy posed photos in front of some sort of fence.”

Valentino’s Life Story Might Become a Musical (The Cut)
“One of the best fashion documentaries ever, arguably even better than the September Issue and Lagerfeld Confidential, was Valentino: The Last Emperor. André Leon Talley may have been better in that movie than he was in September Issue, which was even about his own employer. The only thing better than the film itself would be, as was the case with Legally Blond, the musical version of it. The Telegraph reports: “We’re looking at the possibility of taking my story to Broadway, as a musical,” the designer, whose full name is Valentino Garavani, told La Repubblica newspaper yesterday.”

Khloe Kardashian Gets Downsized For Annie Leibovitz (Jezebel)
“Apparently Annie Leibovitz was so angry that she’s been reduced to photographing the Kardashian Kollection for Sears campaign that she went on a vengeful, Photoshopping rampage once the shoot was over. Either that, or Khloe downed some of the same Alice in Wonderland potion she had before posing for the ladies’ swimwear line to make her 5’10″ frame look smaller than her sisters’, who are 5’2″ and 5’3.”

“Although the “Carine’s World” short film that Mario Sorrenti shot for Barneys has yet to make its debut, the retailer’s full Carine Roitfeld-styled Fall 2011 print campaign — which features women (and one man — her son) Roitfeld culled from the ranks of her co-workers, friends, family, and just those whose style she admired — is now out.”

Fake Breasts Aged Four? Beauty Pageant Mother Sparks Outrage By Boosting Her Daughter’s Chest And Bottom (Daily Mail)
“With the extra padding concealed under her Barbie pink Lycra catsuit, Maddy’s tiny frame is transformed into an hourglass silhouette. Barely able to string a sentence together, many will be shocked by the images of the peroxide blonde trying to emulate the appearance of a woman in her late 20s. When questioned on NBC’s Today show, her mother Lindsay, who entered her first pageant contest when she was nine months old, defends the enhancements used by her daughter.”
