Rihanna Rocks Victoria’s Secret Catwalk

Based on a recent report published by the Associated Press, Rihanna rocked the Victoria’s Secret catwalk during the pre-holiday season fashion show. As usual, the presentation was held on Wednesday night in New York, giving the world-renowned supermodels the possibility to evince their gorgeous bodies.

Rihanna and the rest of the VS Angels shined like “Diamonds” on the catwalk during the Wednesday’s night show. The singer proved she can rock the stage and conquer models’ hearts just like the other interpreters who were invited to take part in the previous editions of the fashion show. RiRi was not only providing the soundtrack for the models’ gait, but she was also rocking the lingerie look that made Victoria’s Secret famous.

The supermodels’ job was no walk in the park, either. The majority of them had to wear complicated outfits, such as, Adriana Lima’s ringmaster wand, Doutzen Kroes’ body cage or the oversized angel wings that have already become tradition. It was very difficult for fashion critics to determine this year’s best pair of wings, but in the end, they had to admit that the swan-style feathered pouf worn by Miranda Kerr was the most original.

The corset and garter parade ended with Rihanna’s interpretation of the song “Fresh Out The Runway”. She, too, looked stunning in the sheer pink mini that occasionally revealed her bra. Among other artists who performed on the catwalk were also Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars. They were both excited to be on stage with so many beautiful women, especially Bruno who did not miss the chance of serenading a model for each month of the year.

The fashion show was divided into six sections, depending on the underwear of the girls. Circus, Dangerous Liaisons, Pink Is Us, Silver Screen Angels, Angels in Bloom and Calendar Girls gave the audience the possibility to view some of the latest collections created by Victoria’s Secret. The show will be broadcast by CBS on December 4, but it will be downsized to one hour.

Kim Kardashian Launches A Fashion Line In UK

Kim Kardashian is famous for several things: her voluptuous body, the sex tape, the fashion and the reality show. She put all that “experience” in creating a fashion line that is going to make any woman feel sexy, regardless of the size. Kim Kardashian’s fashion line launches in UK this week.

A few months ago, there was a lot of fuss about Kim Kardashian launching a fashion collection for British women. The reality show was making a pledge to promote healthy body shapes for women in the UK. This Tuesday, Kim Kardashian and sisters Khloe and Kourtney will launch the new Kardashian Kollection for Dorothy Perkins.

Kim Kardashian has been under the media spotlight for years now, but since she started dating Kanye West, the way we look at her has changed. Many media sources stopped using the Kim Kardashian sex tape or blast her for being a celebrity, without actually having any talents, rather than not knowing what’s private or not.

But when it comes to fashion and style, it is obvious Kim Kardashian knows a thing or too. Her sisters are glamorous appearances too, but it is Kardashian eccentricity and boldness in dressing body-hugging and see-through outfits that makes the headlines. Although the new Kardashian Kollection for Dorothy Perkins is the work of all the three Kardashian sisters, it is Kim’s vision we’re looking for.

“You have to take responsibility for the role you’ve been given, and I think our brand is about empowering women” Kim Kardashian told the Daily Mail about the fashion line and responsibilities of being a role model. “I feel being a role model goes beyond fashion or body image. Yes, it’s about looking and feeling our best, not just in what we wear but in health and fitness and beauty too” she added. “It’s about a strong work ethic, about being the best we can be every day” Kim Kardashian told the British tabloid.

Kim Kardashian’s pledge as a fashion creator is to give women outfits that promote body health and natural body shapes. “I am really glad to be able to promote a healthy, natural body shape, eating well and exercising and appreciating the shape that you naturally have” Kim Kardashian told The Sun.

On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian will be in London to launch the fashion line which features over 100 pieces varying in sizes 8 to 16.

Kate Moss Talks About Breakdown At 17

Kate Moss is the cover girl for Vanity Fair’s December issue. Kate Moss talked about nervous breakdown at 17 and how Johnny Depp helped her cope with fame.

The British supermodel confessed in the new Vanity Fair issue that her modeling career wasn’t all smiles and good times. Kate Moss explained she had a nervous breakdown when she was 17 because of her modeling career. She goes on to say she used to lock herself in the toilet and cry then come out and take her clothes off for topless shots.

In 1992, Kate Moss took a shoot for Calvin Klein that made her famous. Now, she regrets doing that photo shoot. “I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark and Herb Ritts” the British supermodel tells Vanity Fair. “It didn’t feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn’t like it. I couldn’t get out of bed for two week. I thought I was going to die” Kate Moss recalls.

 “Nobody takes care of you mentally. There’s a massive pressure to do what you have to do. I was really little, and I was going to work with Steven Meisel” Kate Moss reveals of the early times of her modeling career. “It was just really weird – a stretch limo coming to pick you up from work. I didn’t like it. But it was work, and I had to do it” she adds.

Her topless photo shoot with Corinne Day for “The Face” was not comfortable for a 16-year-old revealed Kate Moss. “I see a 16-year-old now, and to ask her to take her clothes off would feel really weird. But they were like, If you don’t do it, then we’re not going to book you again” she tells Vanity Fair. “So I’d lock myself in the toilet and cry and then come out and do it. I never felt very comfortable about it”.

Kate Moss also reveals she didn’t like her boobs when she was a teenager. “There’s a lot of boobs. I hated my boobs! Because I was flat-chested. And I had a big mole on one” she reveals.

Kate Upton Lands First Vogue Cover In Italy

Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, Kate Upton, has landed her first Vogue cover in Italy cementing her reputation as a bona fide member of the high fashion set. The November issue of the reputed fashion magazine proves that the ‘new girl’ has come a long way in the past year, Huffington Post reports.

After being rejected by Victoria’s Secret on grounds of being too obvious, Kate Upton reaches the pinnacle of high fashion with her first Vogue Italy cover. The 20-year-old model ditches the Sports Illustrated bikinis in favor of a 60s sensual look which was said to channel classic beauties, such as, Marlene Dietrich or Marilyn Monroe.

Upton wears a Fendi fur, a Patricia Field bustier and a diamond necklace for the November issue of Vogue. The voluptuous model, who dons glamorous locks, fiery red lips and major cleavage in the Italian fashion mag, was photographed by Steven Meisel. The image is accompanied by one simple, yet all-encompassing word: ‘SEDUCTIVE’.

The girl’s ability to be a stylish model was often subject to discussions ever since Victoria’s Secret reps claimed she has “the kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy”. By now, it has become clear to anyone that Kate is capable of pulling off sexy swimsuit photo sessions, as well as stylish pictorial for famous designers.

Carine Roitfeld also selected Kate to cover the first issue of CR Fashion Book because she wanted a model that looks totally different than today’s fashion standards. Unlike normal models, Kate has a “sensual body” without being controversial and this is, in Roitfeld’s opinion, the reason why many more fashion magazines could use her image on their covers.

The Florida-born star confessed she doesn’t want to embrace the super-skinny high fashion look because she thinks a healthy lifestyle is more important. She was glad the fashion industry accepted her point of view because she doesn’t want to starve herself like many other models. 

Heidi Klum Wears The Best Halloween Costumes

When it comes to Halloween, no other celebrity loves creepy disguises like Heidi Klum. The Victoria’s Secret model was often praised for wearing the best Halloween costume of the year, so here are a few ideas for this year’s party in case you feel uninspired.

Heidi Klum’s first appearance which left everyone open-mouthed took place in 2002 when she impersonated sexy Betty Boop. The German model was accompanied by her then-husband, Ric Pipino, who opted for an Elvis Presley costume. This look is probably the least elaborate because it can be easily recreated with a tight-fitting red dress, a short black wig and smokey eye make-up.

Although the costumes she wears each year are all interesting it was the Kitty Cat outfit she chose in 2007 that caused a stir. The model took care of every single detail from the pointy ears, to the whiskers and the long tail. Ironically, Klum accessorized her costume with a collar that read “If found, please return to Seal”, her ex-husband.

The next year, Heidi wore one of the most elaborate costumes in the history of Hollywood’s Halloween Party. She decided to disguise herself as Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction and, for that, six prosthetic arms had been attached to her back, whereas severed hands and shrunken heads were dangling from her waist belt. Heidi Klum declared that she wanted to be Kali because she was very mean and she killed many people.

Just when we thought we’ve seen it all and there is no other way the “Germany’s Next Topmodel” judge can surprise us, Heidi Klum shocked everyone with her hand-painted bodysuit. The model was unrecognizable and looked as if her skin had been peeled off. To make even a bigger impression, Klum was transported on a gurney by a doctor wearing a blood-stained shirt. A few days later, she attended a party in New York wearing a chimpanzee costume inspired by the characters in “The Planet of the Apes”.

The 39-year-old businesswoman has already revealed that this year she will be dressed as Cleopatra. It is her boyfriend bodyguard Martin Kristen who has triggered a lot of rumors as people wonder whether he will show up as Marc Anthony or not. 

This Halloween, The Sexy Big Bird Costume Is The Most Controversial

Sesame Street’s Big Bird was never the hottest Halloween choice. But Yandy.com’s Sexy Big Bird costume will sure be the most controversial at Halloween parties this year.

If for children Halloween is that time of year when they put on costumes to get candy, for adults costumes have a different purpose. Halloween, more than other holiday in the year, is the perfect time to don sexy, silly and kitschy costumes. And Yandy.com’s Sexy Big Bird costume is just the perfect feathery Halloween costume: bright, popular and showing enough skin to have some sex-appeal.

Sesame Street’s Big Bird has been getting a lot of attention lately. It was Mitt Romney that put Big Bird in the spotlight after he has threatened to fire him. After Romney was mocked nationwide and then scrutinized for his cold-blooded announcement, Yandy.com decided to give the regular Big Bird Halloween costume a different spin.

“Exclusive Yellow Dress and Stockings” is the name of the sexy Big Bird costume that has Sesame Street furious. According to Buzzfeed, Sesame Workshop, the non-profit organization behind the show, sent Yandy.com a cease and desist letter. The non-profit organization says Yandy.com is not an official seller of their branded products. But Yandy.com named its controversial costume “Exclusive Yellow Dress and Stockings” and is selling the headpiece separately.

But Sesame Street is going to have a hard time ending the sexy Big Bird Halloween costume craze, since retailers nationwide are selling out of the costume versions of the iconic character. Many costumers started buying their Big Bird Halloween costume the next day after Mitt Romney’s controversial comment.

“I have one lonely Big Bird costume looking at me right now” Marilynn Wick, president of the Costume World chain, told USA Today. “We have only got one left and all of our other stores are out” she added.

Even Disguise, the official Big Bird Halloween costume, sold out incredibly fast. “It’s been insanity. It’s just crazy. We absolutely are sold out of Big Bird” said Cheryl Kerzner, Disguise product design and marketing vice president. “We have had tons of requests from everyone, all of our retailers. We cannot give them more. We are sold out” she added.

It looks like this year’s Halloween, Big Bird is getting all the rage so don’t freak out when an army of Sesame Street yellow feathery costumes invade the streets.

Angel Erin Heatherton Supports Victoria’s Secret Use Of Airbrushing

Model angel Erin Heatherton told Fashionista she supports Victoria’s Secret intensive use of airbrushing women’s bodies in catalogues. She has faith that young, vulnerable girls are too smart to think the images in Victoria’s Secret catalogues are real.

Photoshop addicts with fashion magazines are pushing the limits to photo editing to a whole new level. But more and more people catch on the edit and immediately hit back with criticism. The companies that are using them, however, are put under scrutiny. Fashionista asked model Erin Heatherton about her take on Photoshopping models.

It’s not when a Photoshop god messes up his editing that gets people all angry, but when the editing exaggerates a woman’s skinny body. Candice Swanepoel and Karlie Kloss are just the latest models to get the Photoshop treatment. A lot of people are worried that young girls might have depressions and other health problems trying to look like the models in print ads, not knowing those are not actual bodies.

But Victoria’s Secret Erin Heatherton thinks all the criticism against Photoshopping models is a waste of time. And photo editing is acceptable, since “we’re not selling reality; we’re selling a story”. “I think it’s people’s own prerogative to be able to look at something and know the difference between ‘this is what someone looks like with makeup on’ and ‘this is how they look like in real life” Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend said.

As a matter of fact, children “should be taught in schools” and by their parents how to make the “difference between what’s real and what’s not”. “It’s not a fair message” said Erin Heatherton about fashion magazines using Photoshop to making the waist look smaller for instance, but in the end “healthy body image is not something that you’re going to learn from fashion magazines”.

The Victoria’s Secret model is confident that Photoshopping models isn’t putting young girls at risk, saying she believes everybody is intelligent enough not to fall prey to the myth of the perfect magazine body. And according to Erin Heatherton it’s not Photoshop that’s the problem, but people not “knowing their own body”, not “having strength in their own body image and their own confidence”.

We’re sure that the 7 million girls and adult women with an eating disorder struggling to reach the perfect body their favorite model has in catalogues feel much better now.

Alessandra Ambrosio Is Victoria’s Secret Model For $2.5 M Fantasy Bra

Just five months after giving birth to her second baby, model Alessandra Ambrosio walks Victoria’s Secret fashion show on November 7. Alessandra Ambrosio is the model for the $2.5 M fantasy bra in the Victoria’s Secret runway show.

The 31-year-old Brazilian model looks amazing although she just gave birth to her second child five months ago. Victoria’s Secret has chosen Alessandra Ambrosio to wear their $2.5 million fantasy bra at this year’s fashion show.

“It’s official! Alessandra Ambrosio is wearing this year’s $2.5 million Floral Fantasy Bra, designed by London Jewelers of New York” Victoria’s Secret announced this Tuesday, via Twitter and Facebook. The expensive fantasy bra features a 20-carat white diamond, numerous amethysts and rubies, as well as sapphires. InStyle even writes that jewelers designed a matching belt that carries over 5,200 precious stones.

The 31-year-old model was thrilled about the good news. “I am so honored to be wearing the Fantasy Bra in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!” Alessandra Ambrosio told her fans on Facebook. “London Jewelers did an amazing job and it is absolutely stunning. Can’t wait for you all to see it in the show” she added.

In an interview for People, Alessandra Ambrosio confessed she knew she was going to wear the $2.5 million fantasy bra since July. It was a thought that really got her concerned. In May, model Alessandra Ambrosio became a mom for the second time. She and fiancé Jamie Mazur welcomed their second child, a boy called Noah Phoenix.

“I won’t lie; I was really worried. I was in total mother mode. I just wanted to scream” Alessandra Ambrosio told People. But after the initial meltdown, Alessandra Ambrosio started losing the baby weight with a workout regimen many women would fail at.

To lose the pregnancy weight, Alessandra Ambrosio first began by walking and doing yoga for 69 days. Then she added a daily set of Pilates and spinning sessions while the model’s diet included green juices, fish and salads with kale.

“I was playing a lot of volleyball on the beach, swimming and running after my kids. And breastfeeding always helps [with pregnancy weight loss” Alessandra Ambrosio told People. But now she’s back in shape and ready to walk the runway, a moment that Alessandra Ambrosio confesses she has been waiting for a long time.

Last year, it was Miranda Kerr who was the lucky Victoria’s Secret model to wear the Fantasy Treasure Bra.

Kim Kardashian’s See Through Outfits

Kim Kardashian is one star that loves to show skin. Kim Kardashian’s see-through outfits, that she often posted herself on Twitter, have long become viral.

Since her romance with Kanye West sparked off in a “regalia” of fashionista’s extravaganza, Kim Kardashian has become even more comfortable wearing see-through outfits in public. Whether it’s going commando in a see-through skirt, or a racy Halloween costume, Kim Kardashian is damn proud of her body just as she’s about to celebrate her 32nd birthday.

When it comes to talking about Kim Kardashian in see-through outfits it’s hard to just choose a single time. For instance, in the past three days Kim Kardashian wore a racy Halloween costume with her belly and most of breasts exposed and then went for dinner in Miami in see through dress without any underwear.

Sunday, Kim Kardashian was out shopping in Miami for Halloween costumes. The 31-year-old sure had a lot of fun trying out costumes and made sure her fans knew it too. Kim Kardashian posted a photo on Instagram of her wearing a skintight catsuit with a see-through cleavage and stomach. She even had a cat-ear headband and a tail.

“Rawwwr!!! Halloween Costume shopping!” Kim Kardashian tweeted next to her racy photo. Truth be told, a see-through catsuit Halloween choice would probably top everything else the reality show star donned in the past years.

Later on Sunday, Kim Kardashian was seen in another see-through outfit. This time, she was out dining with boyfriend Kanye West in Miami Beach. Kim Kardashian looked so racy, it’s a wonder Kanye West didn’t trip.

Wearing a cutout bustier and a see-through pencil skirt, Kim Kardashian was quite the sight at Prime One Twelve steakhouse. From what we can figure out from the pictures it looks like Kim K went commando under that pencil skirt that hugged her figure so successfully.

There was one other celebrity this weekend that donned a cut out bra. Miley Cyrus showed up on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” wearing a black Anthony Vaccarello bustier that seemed to be at the dangerous edge of nip slip. The 19-year-old combined the cut out bustier with a navy blue Moschino skirt and red satin pumps.

How To Prepare Your Wardrobe For Fall 2012

Like it or not, we must take leave of summer and prepare ourselves for the cold rainy days that are about to set in with the arrival of the fall/winter season. Refreshing your wardrobe with the latest fashion elements suggested by designers may or may not prevent you from freezing in the blizzard, but it will definitely do away with winter blues.

Minimalism and simplicity used to be designers’ favorite terms for the previous winter seasons as a result of the increasing number of financially conscious customers. This year’s collections, on the other hand, represent a return to the obvious display of luxury which is why baroque elements are traceable in the main winter items. Embroidery, tapestry and needlepoint are the elements you may use to recreate the baroque trend. Those who feel audacious may take the style to the next level by wearing heavy fabrics like velvet, leather and silk brocades; you may even follow in the footsteps of Scarlett O’Hara and wear your drapes as a dress. Whatever you do make sure you accessorize your outfit with gold embellishments.

If you prefer something less extravagant, you can enrich your wardrobe with garments related to the school-inspired fashion. Clichés must be left aside as designers warn their new collections have nothing to do with the sexy school girl image that was often portrayed in the media. There are two main categories that may be traced in this trend: the preppy innocent look vs. the rebellious one. The former presupposes the use of high collar shirts or blouses with knee-length skirts or peg trousers and Oxford shoes. For the rebellious look you will have to wear varsity jackets, skinny jeans and lots of accessories.

The third fashion trend that will be more prominent this winter is the gothic revival for those who love dark clothes. Since this style presupposes the absence of color, the fabrics that you select must make your outfits stand out through their rich texture, such as, brocade, velvet, embroidery and fur. Black sheer materials may also be adopted to create powerful effect, especially when topped over bold hues. Red, royal purple and midnight blue are the alternatives you can use instead of an all-black outfit. The key to obtaining a true gothic look is to wear your hair with loose waves and adopt vividly colored lipstick, preferably in the shade of red, cranberry or plum.
