Kanye Reportedly Returning to Fashion Week; Meet the ‘Hipster’ Congresswoman

And Channing Tatum once modeled for Sean John.

Kanye West Rumored to Return to Fashion Week: Kanye West may be returning to the runway. After the success of his latest album, Yeezus, and a sold-out collaboration with A.P.C., West is reportedly preparing a 100-piece unisex collection to be unveiled during the fall Fashion Weeks. While the rapper-cum-designer has not received overwhelming praise for his past collections, the New York Post reports that he’s now getting help from Nicola Formichetti of Diesel. [NYP]

Meet the "Hipster Congresswoman," Rosa Delauro: Although Connecticut’s third district representative Rosa Delauro has been part of the U.S. House of Representatives for over two decades, her short hair and crazy collection of eyeglasses and printed scarves has earned her recent recognition as one of the coolest women in Congress. Between a Tumblr dedicated to her hipster tendencies and her strong, pro-women platform, Delauro has become a force on the political front. While her style may be wild and crazy, she claims her fashion definitely does not define who she is. “Someone asked me about a pair of boots. I said, Look, I love boots. I buy them. It’s no more than that,” Delauro told The Cut. [The Cut]

Channing Tatum Once Modeled for P. Diddy: Hollywood heartthrob (and new dad) Channing Tatum isn’t shy to discuss his past as a stripper. But now, photos of Tatum walking the 2003 Sean John runway have emerged. His two looks in the show included a dark denim jacket with black pants and a wild leather and fur coat (with nothing underneath) paired with tight white long john leggings. [Buzzfeed]

Anna Wintour Expands Her Empire: Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour may not be too interested in having neighbors—which is why she reportedly purchased the 5.9-acre property next to her country home in Lons Creek, Long Island, for $350,000. Although Wintour’s primary home is in Manhattan's West Village, she enjoys her summer estate as getaway and is clearly willing to go to great lengths to keep it that way. [The Daily]
