Desiree Rogers, the White House social secretary, plans to step down, the Obama administration announced Friday.  Her office came under scrutiny after a couple who lacked an invitation were allowed into President Obama's first state dinner. 

"We are enormously grateful to Desiree Rogers for the terrific job she's done as the White House social secretary," the president and first lady said in a statement released Friday. In an interview on Friday, Rogers said she was leaving voluntarily and that her decision was unrelated to the fallout over the security breach.  Read more here.

Vogue Italia Launches Vogue Curvy & Vogue Black

Today Vogue Italia launched Vogue Curvy {Available in English and in Italian, this is a glamourous addition to the plus size fashion sceneVOGUE CURVY gathers contents from VOGUE Italia, international editions of VOGUE and daily fashion tips. The site offers great pictures and videos, as well as contributions from respected plus size bloggers like Gaby from Chicago, USA (Young, Fat, and Fabulous) and Sakina from Paris, }. Now before people start ranting and screaming saying "where are the curvy women of colour" because in all honesty I don't want to hear it . While browsing their website I came across Vogue Black and they interviewed Tyra Banks here's an excerpt of her interview below.

"The challenge and determination to achieve success and transform herself from feline beauty to media mogul (her company is called Banksable, a delightful play on words) is what marked each step of her brilliant career. "I created my Tyra Banks Show because I wanted to reach a young audience and discuss issues that were important for them."

The program covers a variety of topics, even sensitive ones such as alcoholism, anorexia, and crazy diets. It welcomes ordinary folks and famous people such as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Now the time has come for Tyra to make yet another change in her life. On May 28th, her T.B.S. will come to an end. "I've had great satisfactions, and winning two Emmys meant a lot to me. Today, however, I feel the need to speak to a global audience, which is why I launched an online magazine in September called Tyra: Beauty Inside & Out: we are in the process of restyling it, together with my website where it is hosted. I also launched my new B.I.O. Campaign to expand on other channels - music, TV, and film, besides fashion - a new definition of beauty." read more here
