Rihanna Rings in 420, Carine’s MAC Attack and Top Model Cast Canned for Bryanboy

- Demi Moore has reportedly turned to Oprah for some tender, love and care following her stint in rehab and split from Ashton Kutcher, citing the big O’s help in getting Jennifer Aniston back on her feet after Brad Pitt dumped her for that Jolie woman. Oprah will in turn have dibs on Demi’s first post-rehab interview/soul. [Page Six]

- You know who knows how to properly celebrate 420? Rihanna. Aside from rolling a blunt on a bald man’s head — while in Chanel no less — she also puffs with the mightiest lungs in America, if not the world, Snoop Dogg himself. No wonder she ran out of fucks to give…she never had any to begin with. [Buzzfeed]

Rihanna Rings in 420, Carines MAC Attack and Top Model Cast Canned for Bryanboy

Carine Roitfeld is showing no sign of slowing down this year after a whirlwind 2011. Aside from her new magazine, the Parisienne is hooking up with MAC to deliver a limited edition line of cosmetics, focusing, naturally, on the eye and the brow. [WWD]

- Turn your TVs on and turn the sound off for Bravo‘s The Untitled Male Model Project. Kinda surprised, and a little disappointed, it took Bravo this long to launch a reality show centered around male models but I’m assuming Andy Cohen had to do some rigorous “hands-on” research. [The Cut]

- Also hopping on the reality show bandwagon is designer/professional cartwheeler Betsey Johnson whose Style Network show Betsey + Lulu chronicles her relationship with her daughter as she tries to step out of her mother’s sequined shadow. [Racked]

- The Guess v Gucci trial has come to an end, with Guess’ lawyer, Daniel Petrocelli, making a convincing closing argument calling into question Gucci’s slow response to the defendant’s alleged trademark infringement. Judge Shira Scheindlin is expected to deliver her verdict in the coming months. [WWD, sub req'd]

- Tyra’s holding three pictures in her hands…and they’re all going the fuck home. Ms. Banks has not renewed the contracts for (read: fired) her America’s Next Top Model costars — stylist Jay Manuel, noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker and runway coach J. Alexander in favor of recruiting bloggers like Bryanboy. Meanwhile, burn that show to the ground and just bring back André Leon Talley to soft shoe over its ashes. [Page Six]
