The June issue of Vanity Fair hits newsstands in New York and LA tomorrow, and Annie Leibovitz shot Katy Perry and her teeny teeny waist for the cover. The singer tells contributing editor Lisa Robinson, "My career is like an artichoke. People might think that the leaves are tasty and buttered up and delicious, and they don't even know that there's something magical hidden at the base of it." Was that a quote that just came to her or did she spend some time coming up with that one?

Double-take of the day: Say bonjour to the Tommy Hilfiger Prep World House, bringing grassy swaths, lawn furniture and the weathered shingles-clad charm of a quintessential beach house to the cobblestones of Gansevoort Plaza. Chic checked out the cottage of a pop-up house in Tommy's studio a few months back alongside Tommy and Prep World expert Lisa Birnbach, author of the '80s-era Official Preppy Handbook and this year's True Prep: It's A Whole New Old World. But the full effect amid the finally-splendid springtime weather is even more adorbs than we'd imagined! The "drop-in shop" is an oasis of 60 pieces of perfectly preppy attire, avec all the bells and whistles for the prepster's lifestyle, and debuts this Thursday in NYC before uprooting (literally) and plopping down in 11 more cities around the world. Welcome to the nabe, Hilfigers!

Man of the year Bill Cunningham enjoyed a quick pow wow with Mayor Bloomberg and his girlfriend Diana Taylor at the Met gala last night. We can only imagine what the three of them were discussing! Anna's Chanel couture? The city budget? Jagger and McCartney in the same room? If only those cameras were still rolling...

We can't let this day go by without celebrating our beloved Anna Dello Russo, who fittingly wore a giant egg on top of her at the Met Gala last night. Who cares if Easter has come and gone? We've been losing sleep wondering what ADR would wear, but she confirmed on her website today that her tuxedo was made by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Chic's in awe that Burton was able to keep another huge secret under wraps.

Who knew? Look everybody it's Christian Louboutin and...Jason Statham? These two are not the first that we'd imagine chumming around at the Met ball after party, but that's why we love pictures. Statham escorted his girlfriend, Victoria's Secret angel Rosie Huntington-Whitele, to the festivities.
