Stylists get inspiration from strange places sometimes, but the lady who styled Rihanna for the cover of Rolling Stone went a little too far in the Cowboy direction for our taste. Still, we have no doubt that the getup B. Akerlund created for the cover will inspire impressionable girls to choose scanty outfits All Summer Long. Only God Knows Why those shorts RiRi is wearing are so short. Enough Kid Rock references for you? OK. Because the cover outfit was inspired Kid Rock.
Khloe Kardashian graces her very first cover this month for what just so happens to also be Cosmopolitan’s very first Middle East edition.

Is it just us, or does the super serious voiceover make Ms. Wintour seem even more powerful than we already imagined?
What can you do in three months? Start learning a new language? Read the assorted works of Leo Tolstoy? Orbit the sun from the surface of Mercury? Well, if you’re supermodel Miranda Kerr, you give birth to a child, tweet pictures of yourself breastfeeding said child, and turn up on the red carpet at a Victoria’s Secret event looking like you never had that child in the first place.
Do you hate your armpits? Do you think they’re just so ugly? Are you ashamed of them? Because you should be. Because they are just that ugly. PSYCH. We think your armpits are totally, totally fine. Dove, however, does not.
The last thing we’d ever want to call Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter is square, but it’s not an adjective he’s afraid to apply to himself. Carter jokingly called himself square because, even though he co-hosted the Christie’s Bid to Save The Earth auction this week, he had never heard of its surprise musical guest, Nicki Minaj.
Karl Lagerfeld has been known to say some pretty outrageous things. Courtney Love has been known to wear some pretty outrageous outfits. Put the two together, and, well, you know what’s going to happen, don’t you? Unforgettable fashion quotes, that’s what!

We’re going to be honest. Liam Gallagher isn’t exactly our cup of tea (we mean, OK, Wonderwalls was actually a really great song, but the guy who sings it is just, well, keep reading), but even if he was we wouldn’t be able to forgive the barb he just shot at fellow celebrity clothing label backer, Jay-Z.
A New Jersey woman is suing her plastic surgeon after an eyelid procedure in 2005 left her unable to close her eyes.

If Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana didn’t pay taxes on over a billion dollars in income, what would they do with that money? Buy a villa? Start a diffusion line? How about invest a few liras into the fourth (or seventh?) comeback of everybody’s favorite pop diva, Britney Spears?
On Tuesday the Supreme Court heard arguments for both sides of the Walmart sex discrimination case, which pits every female employee who worked for the mega-retailer since 1998 against the world’s largest chain of stores. While the Court won’t decide whether or not these women were actually discriminated against, it will decide if the case can move forward as a class action suit. And what they decide will determine if these women can sue Walmart for the same thing: not treating them the same as its male employees.
