Miley Cyrus Did Not Diss Beyonce in 'LOVE'; Former Louis Vuitton CEO Receives Legion D'Honneur

And Hussein Chalayan to design for Vionnet.

Miley Cyrus Did Not Diss Beyoncé in LOVE Magazine: On Thursday, outrageous quotes reportedly from Miley Cyrus's interview in the upcoming issue of LOVE magazine surfaced of the pop star insulting Beyoncé — one of them reads, "Beyoncé has been such a big inspiration to me but she's been out for such a long time. She's so talented and I think she's at the top of the game now but people are always looking for new blood and that's what I bring to the game now, new blood. I got the total package you know, the curves, the rhythm, and the voice. I'm just the best." Cyrus quickly took to Twitter to explain that the quotes were fake, and, two hours later, LOVE magazine confirmed they were fabricated. The culprit is still at large, but Cyrus has pointed fingers at The Daily Mail. [Fashionista]

Former Louis Vuitton CEO Receives Legion D'Honneur: Louis Vuitton's former chairman and CEO Yves Carcelle, was awarded France's Legion D'Honneur, the country's highest civilian decoration.

Hussein Chalayan to Design for Vionnet: Fashion designer Hussein Chalayan — who has helmed his namesake label for over 20 years — has been tapped by French design house Vionnet as its demi-couture designer. "I'm extremely happy about this collaboration because I think Hussein is a super-talented, forward-thinking designer," Goga Ashkenazi, Vionnet's chairman and creative director, said. "He is a true artist, very conceptual; he thinks out of the box and has a strong architectural approach. He represents what Madeleine Vionnet represented in her era." Chalayan's debut collection will be shown on January 21 during Couture Fashion Week in Paris. [Vogue UK]
