Just days after a Chanel store in London was burgled after a car plowed through the front window, Christian Dior’s flagship Paris boutique was robbed.

Ladies Home Journal isn’t shuttering completely. Instead of producing 10 issues a year, the 131-year-old magazine will issue four. The New York office will close and the glossy will be published from its Des Moines headquarters. “It’s been a profitable brand, but not enough to continue in this format,” a spokesperson said.

Turns out, Kanye West may not have begged Anna Wintour for a Vogue cover, after all. It was all Grace Coddington’s idea! “There was a wedding story to be done, and Anna probably had them in mind, because she had been seeing a lot of Kanye, so she said, ‘Maybe we should shoot it on lookalikes.’ And I thought, Why not just do it on the real thing? This is Vogue. And I do think Kim Kardashian represents this moment in our culture. I’m fascinated by her, in the same way I’m fascinated by people I see on the street or the subway.” [Financial Times]
