Are we still talking about THAT cover?

Yes - I'm talking about the Kimye cover..

This weekend, the mighty fashion Bible also known as Vogue has been the talk of everyone remotely interested in the magazine. All thanks to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

Last Friday (also the day everyone started questioning Anna Wintour's sanity), the new April cover was released - featuring Kimye.

The reaction was rather overwhelming - or more of one big "WHYYYY?" Some people (read: everyone) were bewildered. 

When the denial phase passed, humor kicked in. Clearly,Seth Rogen and James Franco got in on the action: 

Within hours, two mini-masterpieces were created: the cover of Vogue with Franco and Rogen, and "Vague" magazine featuring Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Obviously, both are much better than the original.

Angelina Jolie and Stella McCartney team up for Malificent

Angelina Jolie is teaming up with Stella McCartney to design a children's clothing line inspired by her upcoming Disney movie Maleficent.
Aptly named after the movie, the collection will feature sparkly princess dresses and sandals for girls and 'edgy T-shirts and sneakers' for boys, with prices ranging from $75 to $185.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Disney growing up, as was my mother, and I grew up watching all the films like most kids did,” said McCartney, who has collaborated with Disney in the past with a costume jewelry line for Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010 and who featured Disney characters in her fall 2009 ad campaign. “When the opportunity presented itself and I was invited by Angelina Jolie to visit the film set, I jumped at the chance.”

The movie opens May 30, and the collection will be available at Stella McCartney stores worldwide, including its first kids’ store in Hong Kong, and online, as well as Disney stores and online, and select kids’ stores at the end of April. Ten percent of the sales made in Stella McCartney stores and online will benefit SOS Children’s Villages, which works to provide homes for children in need.
