Did Miley Cyrus Lose Her Vogue Cover?: After her controversial twerking at the MTV VMAs, Miley Cyrus has reportedly been cut as Vogue's December cover girl, according to numerous sources including The Huffington Post and The Daily Mail. An undisclosed source said Vogue's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour found Cyrus's perfomance "distasteful," deciding to "take the cover in a different direction." Cyrus has already graced the covers of other fashion publications including Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair. Website GossipCop refutes the Vogue story, saying Cyrus was never slated for the magazine's December issue. Whether true or not, Miley-fan Cosmopolitan magazine tweeted, "RT if you want to see @MileyCyrus on Cosmo again. Down with #TwerkShaming #MileyFTW." [Jezebel]

Naked Body Paint Enthusiasts Crash DKNY: It just isn't Fashion Week without some nudity.

Unimpressed editors, including Who, What, Wear's Laurie Trott, Lucky magazine's John Jannuzzi, Cosmopolitan.com's Amy Odell, and BuzzFeed's Alex Rees were quick to share their displeasure on Twitter. The paint-clad fashion patrons did not give an explanation for the display. Warning: Twitter pictures NSFW. [The Huffington Post]

Daughter of Auschwitz Kommandant was a Balenciaga Model: Brigitte Höss, daughter of a Nazi commander at the Auschwitz death camp, revealed yesterday that she has spent the last 40 years working in a boutique in Washington D.C.
