Jennifer Lawrence Gets ‘Chopped’; Viktor & Rolf Return to Couture

and Anna Wintour reportedly bans nude scuplture of Vivienne Westwood from the MET.

Jennifer Lawrence's 'Chop': Your imaginary best friend just got a haute haircut. Jennifer Lawrence has taken a page from Karlie Kloss’s book by getting ‘chopped.’ That’s right, she’s lobbed off a lot of her hair. Beauty site Into The Gloss emailed with Lawrence’s hairstylist Mark Townsend for all the details. “Jennifer texted me that she needed a haircut and told me to bring a chainsaw,” he wrote. “When I showed up she answered the door saying, ‘I want to cut all my hair off!’ … I cut her hair into a shoulder-length shag with tons of layers throughout, starting around her cheekbone.” Townsend was so nerved by the process that he even nicked his finger “’cause my hands were shaking.” [Into The Gloss]

Anna Wintour's Naked Sculpture Ban: Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has reportedly banned a naked sculpture of designer Vivienne Westwood from the MET’s new Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture.

The alleged move has apparently sparked rumors that Wintour and Westwood have a contentious relationship. “It's quite clear that Anna doesn’t care for her,” one source said. “Anna has never attended one of Vivienne’s shows; she isn’t really Anna’s style.” [The Daily Mail]
