Kate Upton Didn’t Know Terry Richardson Was Going to Post That Cat Daddy Video

Not even a high-profile professional model like Kate Upton is safe from some of Terry Richardson’s creepiness

Back in 2012, fresh off that famous video of her doing the dougie at a basketball game, Terry Richardson tapped the model for a shoot, during which he recorded a behind-the-scenes video of Upton doing the Cat Daddy in nary but an extremely tiny bikini. The video itself got a lot of traction, but Upton was none too pleased at first about the video making the rounds. In fact, the model tells Vogue UK that she didn’t even think the clip would be released. 

In a move that seems so classically Richardson, the photographer posted the video without her knowing, which had Upton seeing red. The model reportedly confronted Richardson about it saying, “That was disrespectful, you could have told me!” But the clip garnered millions of views and actually wound up giving the model even more visibility. In the end, it worked out for her career.

At least Richardson’s questionable antics worked out for someone…

Is DKNY Searching for a New Creative Director?

DKNY Fall 2015

Some major changes could soon be coming to DKNY. Donna Karan’s more youthful DKNY line is rumored to be looking for new leadership, a young designer to bring a fresh perspective to the 26-year-old label. 

DKNY is said to be eyeing talent at some of the industry’s trendiest brands, including Public School, A.L.C.’s Andrea Lieberman and Prabal Gurung. Lieberman and Gurung would not comment on whether they were considering the position and Public School’s Maxwell Osborne has admitted that he already has a lot on his plate building his own brand. Jane Chung, who currently sits as the executive vice president of design for DKNY, has been at the label since its establishment in 1989, so a new direction with new talent seems like it could be a welcome change for the brand. 

Only time will tell what moves DKNY makes, but signs appear to be pointing to some shake-ups at the label.

Giuliana Rancic Blames Zendaya Debacle on Bad Editing

Giuliana Rancic is finally speaking out about her Fashion Police comments on Zendaya Coleman’s Oscars locs, which started a media firestorm after Rancic quipped that Zendaya’s hair looked like it smelled of “patchouli oil” and “weed.” Rancic offered a most perfect apology in the aftermath of the incident, but never really got a chance to explain herself, namely, why she made such a crappy joke in the first place.

Rancic finally got the opportunity to tell America what happened in her own words. The Fashion Police host paid a visit to the Today Show and told host Savannah Guthrie how this whole thing started in the first place. “I made a reference to the hippie culture. I talked about patchouli oil, which is a hippie perfume,” Rancic said. “In the editing process, some of the gestures I made were taken out for time. So I made peace signs, I said bohemian twice. Those were taken out for time, so when the joke aired, some people were offended by it.”

Though Rancic says she learned a lot from the experience, she says the thing that was most hurtful about the entire debacle is the fact that she was painted as a racist. “That someone could believe that I would have racial undertones in the things I do – absolutely not.”

Rancic says she understands why people were offended and blames it on the fact that she was “not edited in the proper way” as she was telling the joke.

In the interview, Rancic also addresses viewers’ hurtful comments about her weight. “It became distracting. I would do a two-hour red carpet show and I would be so proud of these interviews and fun moments, and I would go on the internet afterwards and see 99% of the comments were about my weight.” Rancic goes on to say that she does not have nor has she ever had an eating disorder, and her thinness is due to the side effects of the cancer medication she’s taking. “I was eating more than I’ve ever eaten and I was losing weight. I was scared. I didn’t think, ‘oh, this is great!’, I was thinking, ‘what the heck’s happening to my body?'”

John Galliano Will Talk about Getting Inspired by China in ‘Through the Looking Glass’ Catalog

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Insitute’s China: Through the Looking Glass exhibition is nearly upon us and as the date of its opening approaches, more details about the show are leaking out. WWD today reports on the dedicated catalog coming out in conjunction with the exhibit, in which curator Andrew Bolton charts how Western fashion designers have been influenced by Chinese art and culture.  “‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ is not about China per se, but about a China that exists as a collective fantasy,” he writes. “It is about cultural interaction, the circuits of exchange through which certain images and objects have migrated across geographic boundaries.”

Potentially problematic representation of this Chinese “fantasy” as told by the exoticising eyes of Westerners aside, the catalog also includes a Q&A with John Galliano, who got inspired by Chinese culture during a 2002 trip. The excursion later provided a jumping off point for his Spring/Summer 2003 Haute Couture collection for Christian Dior.

We’re hoping that Through the Looking Glass is done respectfully and celebrates the influence of Chinese culture on Western fashion in a manner that doesn’t toe the line of fetishization. 

The exhibit will run from May 7 to August  16.

Edward Snowden Says the Government Can Totally See Your Dick Pics

If you’re the type who likes to send naughty pictures via email and text message, you might want to think twice the next time you take a racy snap. Because according to Edward Snowden, the government can totally see all those dick pics you’ve been sending.

Snowden unveiled in 2013 that the NSA had been using its resources to essentially spy on American citizens, tracking their phone calls and internet use. Last Week Tonight‘s John Oliver went to Russia to talk to Mr. Snowden, who is currently living there under asylum. The conversation turned to allegations that NSA was passing around nude photos of some of the accounts they were spying on. “This is something that it’s not actually seen as a big deal in the culture of the NSA, because you see naked pictures all the time,” Snowden said. 

Oliver mentioned during the interview that while a lot of people he polled weren’t 100% sure about who Edward Snowden actually is and why he’s in trouble with the government, pretty much everyone could agree that the government being able to peek at their dick pics is definitely not OK. 

Snowden maintains while there is no specifically named “dick pic” program in the government, unfortunately, your naked photos are still being collected by the government. Snowden then goes on to outline which NSA programs have the capabilities of collecting such material. Spoiler alert: it’s a lot.

Watch the interview above and find out just how much of your naughty bits the government is able to see.
