At the amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York on Tuesday night, honoree Miley Cyrus auctioned off three Caitlyn Jenner Vanity Fair covers the singer had bedazzled herself for a high bid of $69,000. Cyrus, who has been a supporter of a number of LGBT causes, said she knows that at 22 she is young to be an honoree and still has much to achieve. “I don’t feel deserving,” she said. “That’s my whole speech. I think it’s about setting a standard for myself. I think it takes a lot to get it, but I will hopefully feel worth it one day." Television personality Andy Cohen was also honored. [WWD]
You may think of fashion designers as being surrounded by the finest silks and diamonds.

"Fashion Police" will return Aug. 31, with executive producer Melissa Rivers stepping into one of the host spots. She'll be joined by long-time cohost Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, who started as a cohost in January. The show went on hiatus earlier this year after the abrupt departures of Kathy Griffin — who'd been brought in in January to replace the late Joan Rivers but who found it distasteful to make fun of the way people dress — and Kelly Osbourne, who left after Rancic made some offensive comments about singer Zendaya's dreadlocks.

Singer and Calvin Klein model Justin Bieber tells WWD that, like Kanye West, it's only a matter of time before he designs his own fashion line. But he's worried too. "I just want to make sure it’s perfect and right and take my time with it," he said in a story written by Amanda Kaiser. "I know Kanye has been working on his stuff for years and failed and came back and tried again and failed. It’s about trial and error and I don’t know if I’m ready for that yet.... Fashion’s definitely really important, but I got to make sure I’m ready for the failing part of it because I know that comes with it. It’s not easy. It’s not like putting out an album.” [WWD]
