Azealia Banks Just Came Out With a Song Titled “Anna Wintour”
Azealia Banks is feeling Vogue‘s editor-in-chief. The artist’s new single “Anna Wintour,” which dropped Friday, pays tribute to the grand madam of fashion with lyrics that make direct reference to Wintour: “You know the glow stuntin’ in front row/ Shades away, these bitches can’t look, no/ Bob sleek-chic petite, I fit those/ En Vogue, I do what you can’t know/ I’m runway, you know they a side show.”
ANNA WINTOUR (now I feel in love) lyrics ——— Im so cold I’m so grown I’m so real life/ im so showoff my diamonds designed to twinkle and bleed light…. As the valley fills with darkness shadows chase and run around I can make em stop for me . And no lamb no saviors shelter. I’ll be better off alone I’ll walk at my own pace . I don’t need no one I’ve got my own I’ve got it made. In the morning I cheer for sunshine and I feel but I, don’t feel enough. In the midnight hours I try to- then You show me now I believe . Diamonds and dreams .,come true for girls like me Now I feel in love babe I really know that your love is enough And I’m so lucky you found me in the day I needed love . Now I feel in love babe everywhere you are / your dude came to rock for me hot body yes I got it got it – all of the girls are dance floor queens until I put my blahniks on it . Move and make it hot for me hot rod oh yes I’ll ride it ride it / dance for me get naughty he wild out for these expensive options You know the glow stuntin in front row / shades always these bitches can’t look , no! / bob sleek-chic petite I fit those / en vogue I do what you can’t know!/ I’m runway you know they a side show , I’m first page the Mainstage as I pose/ the one dame the one name that y’all know/ just take Notes stay on top like halo’s/ make peso’s most of these bitches is my clones/ you new puss this catwalk is my throne/ I’m penthouse, you’re trap house and rhinestones/ these diamonds on my bones be my own./ invent styles I been crowned this my home/ bitch I’m grown in ball gowns- it’s french sewn/ you take shots I make shots the end zone/ these bitches overall is some Laura’s they Winslow. then You show me now I believe . Diamonds and dreams .,come true for girls like me Now I feel in love babe I really know that your love is enough And I’m so lucky you found me in the day I needed love . Now I feel in love babe everywhere you are

Banks’ homage has gone even further with the singer full-on channeling Wintour on her Instgram, sporting the editor’s signature bob haircut and black shades combo. Banks also changed her Instagram profile picture to a shot of Wintour.
No comment from Wintour’s camp as of yet. They have enough on their plate.

Levi Straus Sues Kenzo For Trademark Infringement for Britney Collab (Business of Fashion)
On Friday, Levi Strauss & Co. filed a lawsuit against Kenzo with the U.S. District Court in San Francisco, where Levi’s based. According to the complaint, Levi Strauss alleges Kenzo infringed on their trademark by copying the brand’s distinctive signature “tabs” on their pants pockets. The lawsuit cites the Britney Spears denim line that Kenzo launched last month as an example. The “tabs” referred to in the complaint are the cloth ribbons sewn into the back-pockets of Levi’s jeans that bears the brand’s name. Levi claims Kenzo’s activities are causing their sales to slump, suffering “incalculable and irreparable damage” to its goodwill, and confusing customers. Levi is seeking to recoup lost profits, compensatory and punitive damages, and stop further infringements.
Charly Defrancesco Throws Marc Jacobs A Surprise Birthday Party in SoHo (Page Six)
Marc Jacobs may have surprised Charly Defrancesco when he got down on one knee in the middle of a Chipotle last week, but Defrancesco had been orchestrating a surprise of his own. On Saturday, he threw Jacobs an intimate surprise birthday bash at the subMercer, the cavernous basement bar of SoHo’s Mercer hotel. The designers besties Naomi Campbell, Sofia Coppola, and Lil Kim were all there having a ball, watching Debbie Harry sing while perched on an oversized birthday cake.
Okay, sooooo this was without a doubt the sneakiest, most wonderful (and worlds greatest) surprise birthday party EVER!! I am still in total SHOCK! My incredible fiancé @chardefrancesco orchestrated a Mudd Club inspired extravaganza of an evening in honor of my 55th Birthday. In order to get me to the SubMercer (where the party was held), he devised a brilliant, twisted plot which unbeknownst to me had me in on planning a surprise dinner with his best friend Jason. I was responsible for getting Charly to the Mercer for a dinner in his honor with 10 of his closest friends, parents, etc… only to walk into this incredible surprise party for ME!! I’ll be posting lots of photos and giving more details over the days to come! WOW! @blondieofficial @vanessavanjie #somanyfriends #somuchlove
