Zoe Saldana posed nude for Women's Health UK's September "Naked Issue" -- carefully posed, of course, to pretty much reveal nothing but arms and legs.

Olivia Palermo wore a kind of alternative wedding garment Sunday when she married model Johannes Huebl -- a full white tulle skirt by Carolina Herrera split open in the front over a pair of white shorts.

We're approaching the 40th anniversary of Beverly Johnson becoming the first African American model to snag a cover of Vogue (the August 1974 issue, to be exact). But in an interview with Rosemary Feitelberg at WWD, she said there are not as many African American models, makeup artists or stylists working now in fashion as there once were. [WWD]

Madewell has introduced 47 new styles of denim for fall. [Racked]
