  • The CFDA nominees have been announced with Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler all nominated for Womenswear Designer of the Year Award. [Fashionista]

  • Nicki Minaj has surprised many by agreeing to a dramatic makeunder for US Elle. "To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol' crazy lashes - you know, nothing - I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes," she told the mag. Uh huh. [Elle US]

  • Lena Dunham has spoken to Playboy (yes, as in that Playboy) about what she'd do if she woke up in the body of a Victoria's Secret model. "I don't think I'd like it very much. There would be all kinds of weird challenges to deal with that I don't have to deal with now. I don't want to go through life wondering if people are talking to me because I have a big rack. Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier. The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you. It must be a big burden in some ways to look that way and be in public. That said, I probably would want to see if I could get free food at restaurants. Then I'd call a doctor and see if she could return me to my former situation." she said. Love her! [Playboy]

  • On the subject of Victoria's Secret, Karlie Kloss has talked about what it's like to be the first short-haired VS Angel. Despite chopping off her locks the day before last year's VS Fashion show, she says the company have been "the biggest supporters" of her new 'do. "It's an honour to be the first Victoria's Secret girl with short hair. There are girls out there with every body type and there are girls out there with every hair type. You can be sexy with short hair." Hear, hear! [People]
