That Rihanna reign just won’t let up. She’s a #fashionkilla, after all. The Bajan beauty, already a music icon thanks to the powers that be at the American Music Awards, will be given the Fashion Icon Award at this year’s CFDA Awards for “her impact on the industry as fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory.” Her Paris Fashion Week style diary, complete with that racy Jean Paul Gaultier number, is evidence enough of her sassy, sovereign style.

The only thing more shocking than Vogue’s Kimye cover (we’re still struggling to accept the coup), is the fact that the Condé Nast behemoth included a #hashtag and the word selfie on its cover. The latter of which is associated with Kate Upton, who insists that despite her bubbly, buxom ascent, she’s anything but “cheap and cheesy.” [Fashionista]

It’s shoe! We mean, true! Brian Atwood teamed with fellow chaussure chief Steve Madden to acquire the intellectual property rights to his eponymous footwear brand from The Jones Group. Atwood started negotiations to buy back his brand when Jones first announced that it was considering a sale of the company; and thanks to Madden, who also saved Betsey Johnson’s company, Atwood can continue putting his best foot forward. [WWD]

Disney may have hit the designer jackpot. Sofia Coppola, Australian Vogue cover girl and Bling Ring director, is taking the lead in the live action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. Ariel in Azzedine Alaïa or Altuzarra? We can see it now! [The Luxury Spot]

Mountain pose at the Museum of Modern Art? Where do we sign up?! From Barcelona to New York City, luxury activewear brand Lolë is going on tour, hosting yoga sessions at five museums around the world. “The five prestigious museum locations—each one selected for its unparalleled space and atmosphere—will be transformed to provide the serenity of a yoga studio while accommodating between 500 and 1000 guests,” said Lolë exec Nathalie Binda, adding it will be “a yoga experience unlike anything else.” [Glam Inbox]

Did you know the Schouler in Proenza Schouler is pronounced schooler? Does Ann Demeulemeester still trip you up? Never fear, i-D Magazine is here with your A-to-Z guide to speaking chic… literally. [i-D]

Buying groceries, doing our laundry, hailing a cab… there’s an app for all of that. Now, personalized beauty professionals are joining the movement. Midtown Manhattan-based Priv is changing the game when it comes to getting A-list treatment from the comfort of your home. The app offers “beauty on demand” with hair, cut, nails, makeup, masseuse, and personal training services at competitive prices. [Racked]
