Kate Upton like you’ve never seen her before: golfing. The buxom blonde traded out Beach Bunny wears for a conservative Fred Perry sweater and coordinating shorts to hit the green with golfing legend Arnold Palmer for Golf Digest. Somehow, she manages to make even that look super hot. [Racked]

Bromance, always: sole specialist Guiseppe Zanotti is a firm advocate of Kanye West‘s fashion career, to the point that he’d even bring him onboard to show a collaboration at Milan Fashion Week. “Honesty, throughout 30 years, I have been meeting designers who did not do their work so well and they could not play good music either,” he told Jay Z‘s Life and Times blog. “I think that some little details should be forgiven to brave people; on the contrary, a boring fashion week edition is unforgivable… He could shake the system with his adrenaline.” [Life and Times]

One ticket to Marfa, Texas, please! The iconic Prada Marfa shop installed by artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset in the small town is in jeopardy of being torn down. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, the eight-year-old structure serves as an “illegal outdoor advertising sign” though the artists insist there is no commercial connection between their work and Miuccia Prada‘s brand. All we can do is hope for the best… and be thankful that we’ll have this picture from Beyoncé to hang on to… worse case scenario, of course. [Vogue UK]

Michelle Obama, the most-stylish First Lady since Jackie O., is bringing new designer duds to the White House this week. She’ll be hosting Tim Gunn, New York-based designer Behnaz Sarafpour, and 12 aspiring, high-school designers from the east coast to honor the winners of the 2013 National Design Awards. [ELLE]

Stella McCartney isn’t the only designer to go Goop. Fellow Brit Matthew Williamson designed an embellished sweatshirt for the Gwyneth Paltrow-helmed site that’ll set you back a smooth $845. [Goop]

Speaking of Williamson, he tapped Karlie Kloss to pose for the Fall 2013 campaign for his Lindex capsule collection. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

As we prepare to celebrate Vanity Fair‘s 100th anniversary, the magazine is embarking on a video series that will put each decade of the magazine’s existence in motion. So far, Nick HooperDon Cheadle, and Bryce Dallas Howard have been tapped to direct centennial clips. [GLAM Inbox]
