In case you missed it.
Bella Hadid Goes Bleach Blond for Paper Magazine [Paper]
Bella Hadid let her wild side shine for the cover of Paper magazine's winter issue, rocking goth-meets-rockstar inspired looks to complement a bleach blond 'do (and matching eyebrows, to boot). The younger Hadid sister was photographed by Nicolas Moore and styled by Farren Fucci in Gucci, Philipp Plein and Wesley Berryman for the bold and playful cover shoot, in which the 20-year-old's nipple ring is also on full display.
Fashion Magazine Diversity Report Is In [Fashionista, The Fashion Spot]
Both Fashionista and The Fashion Spot conducted a thorough review of 2016 fashion magazine covers, and both found that diversity of cover stars has improved significantly compared to last year. Fashionista found that 36 percent of the 147 covers looked at featured women of color on the cover (a 17 percent rise from 2015), while The Fashion Spot, which examined 679 covers internationally, found that 29 percent featured women of color on the cover (a 6.2 percent increase from 2015). (The Fashion Spot also reported on size, transgender and age diversity in addition to race.) As Racked points out, however, the runways were still dominated by Caucasian women in 2016, and the uptick in cover star diversity may simply point to more women of color in leading roles in Hollywood.

Anna Wintour Reportedly Met With Donald Trump [Complex]
ABC's Candace Smith tweeted Tuesday that in addition to taking a meeting with Kanye West, President-elect Donald Trump also met with Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour. Wintour was a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter throughout the election season, and even hosted fundraisers on her behalf. Recently, she was overheard being critical of the Trump Foundation on a public train. She issued an apology for her comments to The Mirror (confirmed to The Cut by a Vogue spokesperson), in which she stated, "I immediately regretted my comments, and I apologize. I hope that President-elect Trump will be a successful president for us all."
