Details Taps New Publisher

You can’t win them all.

DrewSchutteLinkedInAs we reported last month, WWD summarized the rumor mill of names being mentioned for the vacant Details publisher slot. Nowhere in that summary was the individual today disclosed. From Keith J. Kelly‘s report:

Condé Nast on Monday chose a Web-focused executive from its ranks as the new publisher at Details — signalling it wants to jump start the title’s nascent digital efforts.

Drew Schutte, a former publisher of Wired and The New Yorker, who was most recently executive vice president and chief integration officer at the publishing giant, replaces Kevin Martinez, who was lured to Maxim a month ago.

Kate Upton: ‘Isn’t That Lovely Whenever Media Makes Up Something’

ShutterstockKateUptonSports Illustrated subscribers the world over can breathe a sigh of relief. Supermodel Kate Upton is not looking to get a breast reduction. We repeat; the news was WRONG.

Actually, more than wrong. The news was MADE UP. For shame on British tabloid The Sun on Sunday for putting these words in Upton’s mouth. And for glory on the Daily Mail for today setting the supermodel record straight:

Speaking in an interview on Australian radio station 2DayFM on Wednesday while promoting her new movie The Other Woman, the 21-year-old denied ever saying she wanted a breast reduction.

“I actually never said that,” Upton told hosts Dan and Maz. “If someone asked me this question and actually cared to hear what I have to say about my own personal body… I would say that I feel like all women feel like they don’t have life perfect…”

LPGA Stars Score Paulina Gretzky Golf Digest Cover as a Bogey

The folks at Golf Digest insist that putting a celebrity like Paulina Gretzky on the cover is nothing new. In fact, just a few months ago, Kate Upton was fronting the December 2013 issue alongside Arnold Palmer.

But via New York Times sportswriter Karen Crouse, several LPGA stars have expressed their disappointment with this latest example of media-business-as-usual:

“It’s frustrating for female golfers,” said two-time Major winner Stacy Lewis. “It’s kind of the state of where we’ve always been. We don’t get respect for being the golfers that we are. Obviously, Golf Digest is trying to sell magazines. But at the same time you’d like to see a little respect for the women’s game…”

Please Don’t Ask Why Sports Illustrated Photographed Kate Upton in Zero Gravity

As part of Sports Illustrated’s 50th anniversary Swimsuit Issue, the magazine sent Kate Upton 34,000 feet into the sky in a specially modified airplane that created a zero gravity environment for about 30 seconds at a time. SI then photographed Upton floating around.

Please note that any discussion about why, exactly, SI did this is strongly discouraged.

The only reason for photographing a bikini-clad Upton floating in an airplane is that it can happen. There is no further explanation necessary. We look forward to next year’s issue, which we hear will feature Upton donning a brightly colored bikini while running from an active volcano.

Until then, see below for more pictures of zero g Upton.

Kate Upton Graces Cover of V

Kate Upton is getting the cover treatment from V magazine. It’s a peel back cover, so to get to Upton in just a bikini (something you don’t see very often!) you’ll have to do a little work. Upton was photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The issue will hit newsstands January 16.

When WWD asked Stephen Gan, V’s editor, why he chose Upton as the magazine’s latest cover girl, he replied, “Each time I saw her at a shoot, she had become a bigger and bigger star, and her physique, more and more notorious.”

No one has ever described a FishbowlNY editor’s body as “notorious,” but rest assured that we are trying to change that.

Taking a Lunch Break… Instead, Here’s a Shot of Miley Cyrus (Gasp!) Tastefully Dressed

Lunch At Michaels

Our intrepid Lunch columnist Diane Clehane won’t be covering the scene at Michael’s today because she was up until the wee hours last night as one of the producers of The Fashion Group International’s 30th Annual Night of Stars event.

Diane was on full diva duty, wrangling Miley Cyrus (who came fully dressed and didn’t twerk once!) and Aretha Franklin and running the red carpet, where she witnessed Superstar Award honoree Marc Jacobs trading air kisses with Sofia Coppola, Olivia Munn and Kate Upton. After all that hobnobbing, we figured she could use a day off.

But, no worries, she’ll be back at her regular perch next week. In the meantime, here are some recent Lunch columns (and photos of Marc and Miley after the jump).

Kate Upton Graces Cover of Vanity Fair’s 100th Anniversary Issue

Here’s a 180 degree turn from this morning’s tale of PTSD via modeling: Kate Upton gracing the cover of Vanity Fair’s 100th anniversary issue. Upton was photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

Vanity Fair as we know it has only been published since 1983, but that’s just semantics. If the glossy wants to consider its starting point the same as Dress & Vanity Fair’s (1913), then so be it. Who are we to argue? Plus, Kate Upton.

In addition to Upton, Vanity Fair pulled out all the stops for its 100th birthday. Starting tomorrow a slew of features will be available at vanityfair.com, and inside the issue are pieces penned by Laura HillenbrandBill Maher, Dave Eggers, Kurt Andersen, Lorne Michaels, Robert Stone, Jan Morris and more.

Vanity Fair’s 100th anniversary issue hits newsstands September 5.

Celebrities Aplenty on September Covers

The September issues for magazines are a big deal, and so they typically try and land a big name for the covers. But seeing as movie stars haven’t helped move magazines lately, who will we see when the September glossies hit the newsstand? Let’s review some of the big players, via WWD’s thorough report on the subject:

  • T: The New York Times Style MagazineRooney Mara
  • VogueJennifer Lawrence
  • ElleKate Upton
  • GlamourJennifer Aniston

The Insanity of YouTube: Kate Upton Considering LA Teen’s High School Prom Invitation

Are you sitting down? And if you’re a male teen, can you accept the fact that no, you should not have thought of this first?

In what is even by today’s va-va-voom viral standards a mind-boggling progression, Jake Davidson – a senior at Milken Community High School in Bel Air – has gone from posting a humorous Kate Upton prom invitation on YouTube March 16, to receiving a “maybe” reply from the supermodel via Twitter on Tuesday, to appearing this morning on The Today Show. With Upton joining in via telephone!
