Kate Upton’s Second SI Cover, Porn Appears at Fashion Week

Kate Upton’s Second SI Cover: Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue cover is usually revealed with a big announcement with David Letterman. But this year, the cover image has been leaked, unveiling that Kate Upton has won the accolade for a second year straight. Dressed in swimsuit bottoms, and no top except for an unzipped ski jacket, the cover exclaims, “Kate Upton goes polar bare.” Upton shot to international fame following last year’s cover reveal.

Pornography Hits Fashion Week: Pornography and fashion don’t tend to go together, but somehow that equation amounted (by accident) at Rebecca Minkoff’s Friday show. The designer asked viewers of her show’s livestream to tweet their opinions with the hashtag #RMshow, promising that they’d all appear on an LED screen during the presentation’s finale. Most viewers sent in their glowing reviews of Minkoff’s fall designs … all except for one, who tweeted a pornographic image that landed on the screen for a noticeable few seconds, sending her Lincoln Center audience into a fit of shock and giggles.

Joe Flacco’s Front-Row Showing: Seems like Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco skipped that whole “I’m going to Disney World” spiel in favor of Fashion Week. The Ravens quarterback sat front row at yesterday’s Tommy Hilfiger men’s show, telling The New York Times, I wanted to give my wife the opportunity to be pampered a little bit. I wanted her to get some outfits and get her makeup done.” [NY Times]

Beyoncé’s Vogue Cover: Beyoncé appears on the cover of Vogue’s March issue, fronting the magazine’s annual “Power” list. The image was leaked yesterday by Twitter account BeyonceLite.
