Instagram lover Chanel Iman covers the latest issue of The Edit and reveals what ticks her off to writer Celia Walden. "When models are criticized for being too thin, it's just another form of bullying. It would make me feel so insecure when people used to say that about me, because you're not allowed to go around telling people that they're too fat and asking 'Do you ever stop eating?', are you?" The IMG mod also tells them that that she's still in touch with Tyra Banks, a mentor since she first appeared on her talk show in 2007. "She understands me, which is important because other top models aren't always like that with each other."

Are you prepared for another whirlwind week avec Sergio Kletnoy? We sure hope so! While the assistant to Cosmo’s top brass was rather bogged down this week with administrative duties, thanks to EIC Joanna Coles' absence, there was plenty of hang time with up and coming popstars plus a star-studded Divergent screening. Take it away, Sergio…
"Guess who was out of the office all week? Nope, not moi, but The Boss was! I live by "when the cat's away, the mice will play" mantra, but unfortunately when JoCo is a thousand miles away, my workload doubles and sometime triples. There’s never a dull moment in CosmoLand, and my checklist of things to do adds up faster than Lindsay Lohan’s hook up list. First I had to find my commander an Yves Salomon parka that she’s been obsessing over for months. Considering we’re now in March, the days of wearing that parka are numbered, but I guess there’s always next year. There were also 5,021 invitations to various events that had to be answered, pronto. They all took a backseat to closing our latest issue, but this week the backseat needed my undivided attention. At least I took a break from making all that tea!
But don’t you worry, I managed to have some fun as well: I spent a day on the set of a major Cosmo photoshoot with one of my fave bad-ass pop stars, and no, I cannot reveal who it is! It was everything I dreamed of and more. Stay tuned!
Then I met up with two other super talented new pop stars, including UK singer/songwriter Chloe Howl. She’s an adorable 19 year-old redhead, who sings infectious songs, has major personality, and incredible stage presence. I managed to catch her first NY show at The Box and was completely blown away! I’ve had “No Strings” from Chloe’s debut EP Rumour on repeat for months, it’s a must-have!
Next up is a Swede by the name of Tove Lo. She’s a major talent who I’ve been obsessed with since last summer. Tove just got back from a much buzzed-about show at SXSW and has also written songs for Cher Lloyd, Girls Aloud, and Adam Lambert. Her debut EP Truth Serum is out now and it’s a perfect pop masterpiece. Be sure to check out the insanely catchy “Habits”, which happens to be my fave.
I topped my week off with Marie Claire and The Cinema Society's screening of one of the most anticipated films of the year, Summit Entertainment's Divergent. I was so excited when I got the invite and since Marie Claire was hosting the screening inside the Hearst Tower, I didn't have to go far. For one special night, downtown's cool kids came to us: Zosia Mamet, David Lauren and Lauren Bush Lauren, Olivier Theyskens, Christian Siriano, June Ambrose. And there were enough models to shoot a campaign: Anouck Lepere, Garrett Neff, Lindsay Ellingson, Cory Bond, Alex Lundqvist, Frederique Van Der Wal, Shanina Shaik, and Gracie Carvalho. The stars of the film, Theo James, Amy Newbold, Ansel Elgort and MC’s April cover girl, Shailene Woodley, were also there. The film was a total mind trip, and I was hooked for the entire two hours. It was a journey into dream state, and I would like a one way ticket pronto. Oh, is anyone reminded of Jennifer Lawrence when looking at Shailene, or is it just me?
Have a great weekend, I'll be back with more next week, until then follow me on Twitter at @SergioKletnoy and be sure to check out my fave new tunes from this week...

The cover you've all been waiting for has finally arrived...Vogue has released images of their April covergirl, Kim Kardashian (in a wedding dress, nonetheless) in a very prom-esque stance with future hubby Kanye West. Seems like Anna Wintour's more down with Kimye than we might've guessed. The shot was lensed by Annie Leibovitz and based on the glossy's behind-the-scenes video, we're expecting there will be a handful of shots featuring baby North within the mag's pages. It's a pretty toned-down look for the duo. So, will you be using the #WorldsLongestHashtag that Vogue minted for the duo: #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple?

This is the weekend that will likely turn Shailene Woodley into a household name, and she showed us why last night in Manhattan. The 22-year-old hit the Cinema Society and Marie Claire screening of her new flick, Divergent, in a black Elie Saab pantsuit that would be the envy of Catwoman. Meow! Divergent opens in theaters today.

One teeny little way to embody the flawless creature that is Dita Von Teese is to stroll over to Bloomingdale's and pick out a few items from her new lingerie collection. Last night at Bloomie's she unveiled the looks that are intended to be worn in and even outside of the home. (Warning: Have the grits to go with the gravy, if you dare!) The collection ranges from $40 for thongs to $300 for full slips.

The lucky ladies on staff at The Rose Bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel are getting a wardrobe update! Last night, Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs of Cushnie et Ochs held a dinner hosted by model Jessica Hart at Rose Bar to announce their designer collaboration with the hotel, which includes dressing the female bar staff in their signature sexy designs. "We’ve been coming to Rose Bar for quite awhile, and we became friends with Damion [Luaiye]. It was this sort of conversation that developed and when he brought it up we jumped at it," said Cushnie. "We love the space and it’s a great vibe here.” The design duo is following in the footsteps of Narciso Rodriguez and Sophie Theallet, who have previously designed staff wardrobes for Rose Bar. "We used to come here when we were studying at Parson’s together and we always remembered those infamous Narciso [Rodriguez] dresses," said Ochs. "We did a sexy little LBD, so hopefully we can fill those big shoes.” The Cushnie et Ochs take on the LBD includes an abdominal cut-out and a little peek at the top for a peep of cleavage. "It's definitely signature us," said Cushnie. "It has sharp lines, it's sexy, and it's fitted with a little bit of structure." Stop by for an evening tipple and check out the duo's designs up close! However, we regret to inform you that these LBD's are not for sale.
