and Lena Dunham directs a short fashion film.

Taylor Swift Magazines Tank: It seems like Taylor Swift’s gold does not carry over to the magazine industry. The singer covered nearly every major fashion magazine in the past year, including Vogue, Glamour, Elle, in addition to more general titles Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair. But her covers reortedly bombed at newsstands (both print and digital) -- and she was outsold by lesser stars including Lauren Conrad and Zooey Deschanel.

Tom Ford Changes Diapers: Tom Ford sat down with Andre Leon Talley in London before his label’s runway debut. In their interview, Ford admits to changing his new baby Jack’s diapers, saying that he did not have a child so someone else could do the dirty work. When Talley inquires when Ford’s fans can expect his next film (his debut production A Single Man came out in 2009) Ford responds, “My production this year was Jack Ford.” [Vogue]

Titled, ‘Best Friends,’ the film shows off the designer’s fall 2013 collection and co-star’s Dunham’s sister Grace (who also had a role in Dunham’s film Tiny Furniture) and is narrated by Girls’s Adam Driver.

Kim Kardashian’s Blood Facial: Kim Kardashian’s bizarre beauty routines haven’t subsided during her pregnancy. The soon-to-be mom received a blood facial on her show Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, which involves blood being drawn from your body and then having it reinjected into your face to achieve a healthy glow.

Isabel Marant on Sneaker Wedges: Isabel Marant has finally opened up about all of the imitations of her famed sneaker wedges, which have been widely copied by brands as diverse as Sketchers and Chanel. Quite simply, she thinks they’re vulgar. “Everybody who has the wrong one looks quite bitchy, very vulgar, where mine are not at all.” She attributes the shoes’ design dispersion to the Internet. “As soon as you have an idea it’s copied and you don’t like it in a minute.” [Telegraph]
