• The biggest “a-duhhhhhh” of the week: Kanye West is launching a high-end fashion collection. ’Ye is setting up shop in Paris to work on a line for both men AND women, which is not-at-all surprising considering he himself has been spotted sporting some womenswear himself. {Telegraph}

• Head of Yves Saint Laurent fashion house Stefano Pilati admitted that when it comes to his critics he’s “very scared” of bloggers. While he’s fascinated by the medium in which they communicate, he feels it’s only a “one-way dialogue.” ’KAY, STEFANO. LEAVE US A COMMENT THEN. We’ll talk. *evil cackle* {Fashionista}

• Three OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD gorgeous plus-size models grace Vogue Italia’s June 2011 cover. The three beauties — Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine, and Robyn Lawley — look devastatingly sultry clad in nothing but their bra and undies. HOT! {Fashionologie}

• WHO’S OBSESSED WITH NAIL ART? *waves hand wildly* We are. Like, a lot. This ASOS music issue nail art is drool-worthy, and we never even USE that term. But spittle actually began to form at the corner of our mouths after seeing these, so we had to. {Fashionista}

• Also, if those looks are too cray cray for you, try one of Rachel Zoe’s summer nail picks! We LOVE the coral-y Givenchy shellac the most. How about you? {Styleist}
