Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinksi's Kentucky Derby Gig; Was Kate Upton Bumped for Kimye 'Vogue' Cover?

And blogger Susie Bubble to write a book.

Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinksi's Kentucky Derby Gig: After stealing the spotlight as commentators at the 2014 Winter Olympics—and later covering the red carpet at the Academy Awards for Access Hollywood—ice skating duo Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski are back. Continuing their match made in co-host heaven, NBC has enlisted the pair as fashion correspondents for its coverage of the Kentucky Derby, scheduled for May 3. We can only hope that the pair’s outfits are as fun and over-the-top as they were in Sochi. [Daily Mail]

Was Kate Upton Bumped for Kimye Vogue Cover?: In the midst of a massive fashion-frenzie freak-out that can only be described as a Kimye Vogue-pocolips, rumors have begun to surface that the “#WORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTCOUPLE” bumped supermodel/actress Kate Upton from its April cover. On Monday, Jonathan Van Meter—a frequent contributor to the publication—confirmed that his feature was indeed switched out last minute. "After getting bumped from the cover of April Vogue for Kimye and finding out only once it hit newsstands, I think I have earned the right to post this little bit of frothy praise," he posted to his Facebook page regarding a review of the magazine that named Van Meter’s Upton article the “jewel of [the] issue.” [E!Online]

Blogger Susie Bubble to Pen a Book: Susie Lau, the brain child behind popular fashion blog, Style Bubble, announced Monday that she is in the process of writing a new book. The blogger hasn’t “quite formulated the right words (or media blurb) to describe this thing that [she’s] penning,” but having traveled from Sydney to Tokyo to Hong Kong in the recent weeks, we can only guess that it will include tons of fashionable photos from around the world.
