Vogue Controversy Resurfaces. Last March, the fashion magazine published a profile of Asma al-Assad, the first lady of Syria, even as Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s government was ruthlessly cracking down on protesters. Many blasted Vogue for being out of touch, and though the magazine originally defended its article, it was later removed from its website. But not even Anna Wintour could erase the piece completely, and the Atlantic reports that a copy of the full article still exists on a fan page dedicated to President Assad. [The Atlantic]

More Rodarte Costumes. After designing stellar ballerina costumes for last year’s Black Swan, Kate and Laura Mulleavy are now making their first foray into opera. The Rodarte sisters will create costumes for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Don Giovanni production, set to debut in May. [Hollywood Reporter]

Cosmo Cover Girl. Jenni Avins rightfully asks whether it’s appropriate to put a 17-year-old Dakota Fanning on the cover of the February issue when articles such as “His Best Sex Ever” and “Too Naughty to Say Here” are touted so flagrantly. [The Cut]

A Brief History of Kanye West’s Fashion Career. Perhaps those negative reviews of his Paris Fashion Week debut finally got to him? We may never know the impetus behind Kanye’s epic tweet-a-thon, which doesn’t make it any less amazing. From his Fendi internship to a Versace offer he had to turn down, the rapper told us about his entire fashion career earlier this week, 140 characters at a time. [Fashionista/NewsFeed]

First Look: Jason Wu for Target. This latest fashion collaboration is likely to cause the same kind of mania that Missoni did last fall. But this time, it’ll be for good reason. From shifts to satchels, the pieces from Jason Wu’s Target collection look just as chic and polished as his runway ensemble. [Lucky]
