Would you care to dine with President Barack Obama and Vogue’s leading lady, Anna Wintour on June 17th? For a mere $32,000 you can. Wintour is hosting a fundraising dinner for the second time in her Greenwich Village home, we suppose, as a favor to Michelle for cutting the ribbon on her newly minted Anna Wintour Costume Center.

Chrissy Teigen is moving up the fashionable ranks! No longer just a Sports Illustrated model, John Legend’s wife has appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan and now, as the face of XOXO’s fall ad campaign! “It’s great to be able to do a brand that you’ve known for so long,” the 28-year-old model said. “Obviously the brand has evolved but it’s still so recognizable as an XOXO campaign. Growing up it was exactly my style. It was sexy and it was flirty and there was something cheeky about it.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

J.Crew popped up in London and now could be saying oui to Paris! “We’re looking where we see the right environment. Paris is obviously a great city to do business in,” brand CEO Mickey Drexler said. “When we see the right location, we will take a shop.” Hopefully tomorrow Drexler doesn’t renege on that statement.

We know it’s only Tuesday, so it’s too early for #TBT, but this picture of Rachel Zoe at 22 was too good not to share! She’s taking part in LinkedIn’s new editorial series If I Were 22 with 80 other influencers sharing lessons learned in the early stages of her career along, with a picture of herself from yesteryear.

Here’s your latest #KimyeWedding watch update: Andre Leon Talley will pull double duty during the nuptials. The Zappos Couture curator and editor will cover the wedding for Vogue.com and asked Valentino to host a brunch for the couple at his elegant Château de Wideville on the eve of their wedding. Also, it should be noted, that the reality star and rapper were refused permission to wed at Versailles. Instead, they will be granted a private guided tour. That’s fine, West wants to be wed in Italy, anyway, because that’s where North West was conceived. [Page Six]
