After wishing for more models on covers, she got what she wanted!

Naomi Campbell has been all up in the public eye lately, so why not do some more and pose for Vogue Italia!

Shot by Steven Meisel, the sepia tone February issue cover is very reminiscent of her cameo in Michael Jackson's In the Closet music video!

Titled "Wardrobe Fittings", the retro-themed spread is just the right touch of creepy, with Naomi propped up on an ironing board like object dressed in a variety of designer duds and wigs.

Fabulous as always!

Former Ed Hardy CEO Hubert Guez is being sued for sexual assault

The former CEO of Ed Hardy, Hubert Guez, is being sued for sexual assault by a masseuse, claiming that he tried to force himself on her during a massage session in May of last year.

If the name sounds familiar, it's because he owned the Holmby Hills home Michael Jackson was renting when he died.

The suit, which was filed in L.A. County Superior Court by the masseuse's attorney Keith Davidson, contains allegations

Jean Paul Gaultier Celebrates The 80s With A Thriller Of A Collection

Break out the hairspray and the crimper! Because Jean Paul Gaultier is taking everyone back to the 80s!

On Saturday the French designer presented his S/S 2013 offerings, and like Philip Treacy, he had pop icons on the brain.

JPG said in his show notes:

"This is an homage to all the pop stars of the Eighties who have influenced fashion and my fashion with their look. Any similarity with real events or characters is purely noncoincidental."

And how could it not be when the Parisian runway was lined with Michael Jackson, Madonna, Boy George, Annie Lennox, Jane Birkin and Grace Jones look-a-likes.

JPG even threw in a David Bowie twin for good measure.

Loves it!

As for the clothes, they weren't so bad either. That is if you don't mind reliving all the 80s trends.

Philip Treacy Pays A Fascinating Tribute To The King Of Pop!

philip-treacy-ss-2013-london-fashion-week-show.jpg

After a 12 year hiatus, Philip Treacy returned to the London Fashion Week catwalks on Sunday!

The milliner's Michael Jackson meets Africa-inspired S/S 2013 collection was modeled by an all-black cast of models outfitted in some of the King of Pop's costumes and all we can say is it was a Thriller!

Mr. Treacy said of his fascinating collection:

"It was based on Africa getting rich. A future Africa and they just happen to be wearing Michael Jackson’s clothes. Jackson was exceptional — his talent, the dancing, the image, and I was touched to be able to work with his clothes. They were at my studio for a month before the show, and they were really freaking me out. I’d lift up a box, and there’d be a sparkly glove.”

Ha!

Speaking of sparkly gloves, that was hands down our favorite piece!

Besides the obvious tribute to Michael Jackson, Treacy also dedicated the show to his late friends Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen, with a gospel choir which brought tears to those seated in the front row.

Wow. Bravo, Philip!

Paris Jackson Was Confused About Wearing A Mask

| Filed under: Michael JacksonOprah Winfrey

Remember how Michael Jackson always kept his children hidden under masks?

Not surprisingly, the King of Pop's daughter Paris was just as confused by the strange attire as we are, but now that she's older she totally understands why.

In an interview with Oprah, Paris reveals:

"I was really confused. I didn't get why I was wearing a mask. But I understand it now – why my dad would want our faces to be covered. When we went out without him we wouldn't be recognized. We had a normal childhood" – including trips to the children's arcade and restaurant Chuck E. Cheese's. He told us that when he was younger he didn't really have a childhood. He would always be stuck in the studio singing while the kids were out playing. He wanted us to have that."

We always knew MJ missed out on his childhood, but there's something about hearing his daughter say it that makes it even more sad.

At least she understands and was able to go to Chuck E. Cheese and more importantly survived!
