Muse of the World: Charlie Sheen Is Not Dead…At Least Not on the Outside


It’s a very Vogue Friday: Was Carine persona non grata in Paris last week? Inez and Vinoodh snap Gisele for Emmanuelle Alt‘s first cover. And RiRi makes her debut as a Vogue cover girl while Anna rolls over in the special grave she uses to keep from aging . Oh, and contrary to popular belief, Charlie Sheen is alive…and will be on the cover of Vogue Italia’s “The Crack Issue” next month…Everyone, strike a pose!

Muse of the World: Charlie Sheen Is Not Dead...At Least Not on the Outside

- Rumor has it Carine Roitfeld was banned from Paris Fashion Week after Condé Nast big-wig Jonathan Newhouse fired off a letter asking designers not to invite the ex-editrix as it “might send a confusing message.” In other news, Emmanuelle Alt recently graduated from an at-home signature forgery class. [Hint]

- Speaking of Alt, her first cover of Vogue Paris has hit the interwebs. Gisele looks great as usual, but this could easily be American Vogue and I could easily fall asleep looking at it. [Models.com]

- And speaking of American Vogue covers I hate, ladies and gentlewomen, Rihanna. [Twitter]

- I’m as excited for the Royal Wedding as the next gal, but some people are seriously starting to OD. [Beautylish]

- One of John Galliano‘s “victims” feels kind of bad that he might have ruined the designer’s career and doesn’t think he’s really a racist or anti-Semite. Thanks for your swift action regarding this matter. [Huffington Post]

- Japan really can’t catch a  break today. [BBC]

- And in equally tragic news, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have called it a day on their relationship. Personally, I think J-Tims looks better without a beard. [People]

-But as usual, Charlie Sheen provides the light at the end of the tunnel. Reports of the actor/hooker connoisseur’s death have been grossly exaggerated…by a virus spreading through Facebook. Now if this were the only the first time that we caught something contagious after poking Charlie Sheen…. [HuffPo]
