For her upcoming issue of Pop, Dasha Zhukova scored a big get: Twitter queen (and occasional singer) Britney Spears, who appears on multiple covers of the magazine. Todd Cole shot Brit-Brit for the glossy, and Takashi Murakami gave her the full kawaii Japanimation treatment. (We hear cartoon stickers will also appear throughout the mag.) Why Spears? “She’s feminine, sassy, strong-willed, determined: all the things a great Pop icon should be,” Zhukova told us from Moscow. “Couple that with some Japanese swimsuits and a Rodarte wedding gown and I think she is pretty much Pop personified!” Apparently the idea arose when Zhukova was discussing the idea of manga characters with Murakami—and voila, a cover star is born. The mag will be out September 1—it also includes a collaboration with Cindy Sherman, who reinterprets the Chanel woman, an interview with Hillary Clinton by Barbara Bush (!), and stories on Barbara Kruger, MNDR, and Martha Stewart (!!)—and we’ve got your exclusive first look at two of the covers, above.
Finally, a bit of insight into Chanel’s beauty ambassadors: “I test out product before it hits stores, and give my opinion and what I love about it,” Chanel It girl Leigh Lezark revealed. Remind us again where applications for this gig are? [WWD]
Romance rumor mill: Kate Hudson and A-Rod call it quits. And we were so looking forward to Rodriguez and Keith Urban getting to know each other at all those Nine premieres. [Page Six]
Gisele and Tom are living with a nameless baby. According to Dad, the supermodel changed her mind at the last minute, and now the two of them are never together long enough to pick something out. That’s what we call priorities. [People]

First bankruptcy, now Britney Spears? Annie Leibovitz averted Chapter 11, but she hasn’t been so lucky with regards to the pop star. The photog shot Spears for an upcoming Candies ad campaign. [WWD]
Rachel Zoe on watching her reality show: “I need to develop an edit button for the things that come flying out of my mouth.” Maybe, but we’ll die if she doesn’t shut it down in at least one hero dress on the new season. [WWD]
Beyoncé and Tina Knowles expand their House of Deréon collection to include daywear designed to bring you from “office to dinner.” That is, if your office dress code includes silk jumpsuits. [WWD]

Britney Spears fills Gaga void, goes on national television in a bikini. [People]
Diane Kruger dishes on her Inglourious Basterds style: “The best [part of this role] was actually getting down and dirty. To have the ripped skirt, the [bullet] hole in the leg—being disheveled is usually more fun.” Cue bullet hole-patterned leggings for Spring. [WWD]
Paula Abdul’s out and Posh is in. She’s not coming on as a permanent judge, but Victoria Beckham is slated to tell it like it is on the next season of American Idol. Remember, she was a singer first. [E! Online]
Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, the opera? It’s not too good to be true. Timberbrit is a “tragic tale…Timberlake returns after a long absence to win back Spears’ love, but in the end she chooses the audience’s love above all else.” We almost cried just reading that.
Say what you will about the troubled starlet, but we have to hand it to Britney Spears for hitting the stage at New York’s Nassau Coliseum looking surprisingly on trend. There’s the showstopping bandleader jacket, not unlike versions spotted on the Spring runways at Balmain and 3.1 Phillip Lim. And while Sienna Miller and Daisy Lowe drew ire for their hot-pants experiments, we think Spears actually pulls off these sequin briefs. What do you think: Is a Courtney Love-style fashion comeback in the works, or will the former Mouseketeer be back in trucker hats and flip-flops before she can lip-synch “Oops! I did it again?”
