Fashion Roundup: RiRi Takes Over LFW and Marc Jacobs as Hunky Diet Coke Man
Each week FashionTV rounds-up the most fashionable highlights of the week from the web: The best cover shot of the week, sexy trends, and amazing videos!
Cover Shot of the Week: Sarah Jessica Parker covers the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar China, but the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not she’s been photoshopped?
