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.

Carine Roitfeld Named Global Fashion Director for Harper’s Bazaar

Carine Roitfeld is joining Harper’s Bazaar as its global fashion director. Roitfeld currently works on a variety of projects — including her biannual CR Fashion Book — and will continue to do so.

As global fashion director, Roitfeld will work with Stephen Gan, creative director of Harper’s Bazaar, on several stories a year, starting with the March 2013 issue.

“Hearst is the world’s largest publisher of monthly magazines, and we’re always looking for powerful ideas that can play out across the globe,” said David Carey, president of Hearst Magazines, in a statement. “Carine is one of the fashion world’s most influential tastemakers and we look forward to seeing what she does with Bazaar. Her contributions will help lead the company to new heights on the creative front.”

Carine Roitfeld’s New Magazine Unveiled

Carine Roitfeld has finally ended all the mystery revolving around her new magazine. WWD reports that the glossy will be titled CR Fashion Book, sell for $9.95, debut in September and be published by Fashion Media Group LLC. Each issue will carry a theme, such as “obsession,” which we don’t think has anything to do with those creepy Calvin Klein ads back in the 80s, but you never can be too sure.

More details on CR: The debut issue is 288 pages, there will be 50,000 copies printed and Roitfeld has promised to “find new ways to be irreverent” within the book. Also, Fashion Media Group’s founder, Stephen Gan, is officially drunk on Roitfeld Kool-Aid.

“Carine Roitfeld is one of the most talented editors in our industry,” Gan told WWD. “She deserves an editorial platform with which to express herself, and I’m happy to provide one. I hope it will enlighten. I hope it will build bridges not walls.”

If CR ends up merely a magazine full of nice pictures and clothes, someone please check in on Gan, okay?
