1. In its most recent issue, Vogue‘s cover features a plus-sized model (Ashley Graham), as well as models of various color, including its first-ever Asian model on the cover, and claims to “celebrate modern American women.” A photo shoot inside, however, features Karlie Kloss as a Geisha, which seems to undermine the issue’s mission. NY Mag points out that the shoot is “likely an homage to Richard Avedon’s shoot of German model Veruschka von Lehndorff that appeared in Vogue in 1966.” Vogue has not yet commented on the controversy.

Maddie isn't quite ready to return to school, but her doctors did clear her to bring in her Valentine's Day treats to her class today. Thanks to @avery and @hersheycompany for making these treats for her to pass out, since I didn't have the time to make any myself this year. It made her so happy to see her friends, and be able to give them such cute treats. It was a great moment for us after everything that has happened. We are so thankful to celebrate Valentine's Day with the ones we love, and we don't take a second of it for granted ❤️Happy Valentine's Day❤️

2. Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter returned to school after her ATV accident for a special Valentine’s Day. After a terrifying ATV accident that left her in the hospital, Maddie Spears, the eight-year-old neice of Britney Spears, is not only out of the hospital, but was given the doc’s okay to deliver candy to her classmates for Valentine’s Day. “Maddie isn’t quite ready to return to school, but her doctors did clear her to bring in her Valentine’s Day treats to her class today,” Jamie Lynn captioned the adorable pic. “We are so thankful to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the ones we love, and we don’t take a second of it for granted.” SO happy to see her on the mend.
