Fashion News Roundup: Calvin Klein's Boyfriend Gets Busted, John Varvatos Shuns Fashion Star's Shenanigans, and Bill Cunningham is Honored by Carnegie Hall

Calvin Klein's Baby Boyfriend Drama: Twenty-two-year-old ex-porn star Nick Gruber, who shares a suspiciously similar hairstyle and skin smoothness with his 69 y.o. designer beau, was arrested yesterday on charges of assault, resisting arrest, and cocaine possession-- in that order. It seems the law has come between him and his Calvin. {NY Post} UGG Opening New NYC Flagship: After the apocalypse, the only things left will be rats, Cher, and Uggs. The fuzzy boot retailer, which continues to expand against all the fashion faux pas odds, will open a 2,500-sq-foot store in NYC's Meatpacking District this fall. {WWD} John Varvatos Doesn't Fancy Fashion Star Theatrics: The Fashion Star mentor isn't very into the ridiculous shenanigans that explode onstage during the clothing presentations on his reality show. "If the show continues to go on," he'd apparently like to see less of these distractions. Hold on-- if? IF?? But what on Earth would we do on Tuesday nights without this glorious, fashion forward, relevant celebrity-driven concoction of a series? I can't bear the thought. {BuzzFeed}

The likes of Anna Wintour, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Oscar de la Renta (he drove there fast) were greeted at the entrance by cardboard cut-outs of Bill-- which we're hoping will be stocked soon at our neighborhood Party City. {Fashion Week Daily}

David Bailey Warns Us to "[N]ever Sign Anything for F-cking Conde Nast or Hearst": The legendary fashion photog spoke candidly about his famous affair with '60s It-girl Jean Shrimpton, his shitty (literally) pranks on colleagues, his friendship with Diana Vreeland, and his "ghastly contract with American Vogue." Sounds like a fun guy to work with! {NY Mag}
