Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock with your fingers in your ears, you’d know a thing or two about Madonna‘s cone brassieres.

Just in, the Forbes list of most powerful celebrities. Oprah is first (duh) and Lady Gaga is fourth (again, duh). The highest score for a model, Gisele Bündchen, was ranked at 85th, followed by Heidi Klum and Kate Moss at 86 and 91 respectively. [Vogue UK]

There were rumours circulating yesterday that MTV’s fashion-oriented, (scripted) reality show The City would be cancelled. No need to put those flags at half mast, Whitney Port has already cleared the air via her twitter and website that the rumours are false. [Styleite]
