Cover Trends: Have you seen the new cover of Vogue, btw? Beyonce is on the cover, looking gorgeous as per usual. Interesting note: this makes two African-American women in a row on the cover of the legendary magazine. Coincidence? (The Cut)
We Heart Carine Roitfeld: Speaking of Vogue, Carine Roitfeld is denying rumors of taking the helm from Anna Wintour again, saying, “I’m very happy at French Vogue to be able to do everything — almost everything — I want in the magazine.

And I’m not sure I’m talking enough good English to work there.” While Carine was charming as usual, the CNN writer mentioned Anna’s age in the article. We’re sure this will be handled accordingly. Be sure to check out Carine on CNN: Revealed tomorrow. (CNN)
