Your morning fashion and beauty report: Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta or both for Chelsea Clinton's wedding? And do you want to fake Rihanna's hairstyle?

-- Chelsea Clinton has been trying to keep details of her pending wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky under wraps, so it made news when she was seen ducking into Vera Wang Tuesday afternoon, hidden under an enormous floppy hat to try to ward off nosy reporters. She met mom Hillary Rodham Clinton there, and the secretary of State also stopped by Oscar de la Renta. How many changes of clothes do we think the mother-daughter pair will go through during the reportedly three-day, $3-million-plus festivities in Rhinebeck, N.Y.? [WWD]

-- One thing we do know about the Clinton wedding is that French hairdresser Isabelle Goetz, who recently bought a Georgetown salon, will tend to the secretary of State's tresses. [WWD]

-- Essence magazine is being criticized by some readers due to rumors that it has hired a new fashion director who is white. The lady in question, Ellianna Placas, has worked for US Weekly and O: The Opah Magazine. Essence has made no announcement, but rumors -- and outrage -- are bouncing around the Twitter-sphere.  [Clutch]

-- Do you dream of getting away from it all on a well-deserved summer vacation to de-stress, unwind and soothe your soul? Fugiddaboutit. A new study says vacationers are no happier than those of us (that's right, All the Rage isn't getting a summer vacation) who slog right on through at work.  [Newsweek]

Soccer is called "the beautiful game," and its practitioners in the Chelsea Football Club should look pretty good when they are out on the town in Dolce & Gabbana: The fashion label and club just signed a three-year "fashion partnership."  [Telegraph]

If you like the look of Rihanna's edgy undercut but don't want to lop off half your hair, not to worry. With some gel and a blow dryer, you can fake the look. [BellaSugar]
