The Diet That Got Kaela Humphries To Lose 40 Pounds

When it comes to the diets celebrities use to drop bulk weight, it’s hard not to be curious. In fact, thanks to celebrities’ dieting, we heard about Miley Cyrus’ gluten free diet and Kate Winslet’s facial analysis diet. Sure, some diets are wacky, but as long as they give results it all works for the best. Now it is Kaela Humphries’ time to spill the secrets of the diet that got her to lose 40 pounds.

Kaela Humphries used to be a competitive swimmer in high school and college. Once that stopped, the pounds simply piled on, until she found herself in need to lose several pounds and fast. While you’d be expecting former competitive swimmers to have the body of a gorgeous swimwear model, Kris Humphries’ sister had another thing going on.

Although her body isn’t necessary what you’d call catwalk size, Kaela Humphries’ physique fits her pretty well. The Minnesota native just scored a great deal with Ford Models in the + division next to Crystal Renn, Candice Huffine or Ashley Graham. The press release reads that the Ford + division “is excited at the prospect of bringing this beautiful, engaging young woman to markets worldwide. A true size 16-18, Kaela will be in a league of her own”.

Given her new modeling gig, Kaela Humphries talked with People.com about her diet and weight loss. She confessed that back in her athlete days her size varied from 10 to 12 but, after the swimming stopped she found herself looking for size 18 when shopping for clothes.

“You are sort of used to living and eating a certain way, and then you are like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t eat 10 meals a day and 10,000 calories anymore”, said Kaela. Given that she is approaching 30, Kaela explained “it gets harder to lose weight the older you get”.

So, motivated by following a modeling career, Kaela started working on her weight losing. Over the past few months, the former competitive swimmer lost 35 to 40 pounds and managed to get to size 14 or 16.

Kris Humphries’ older sister also added during her interview with People: “It should have been more of a priority earlier. But it’s hard when you have a fulltime job in the real world and it’s not your job to be in shape”.

Heidi Klum Becomes A Rock Star

Fashion model Heidi Klum becomes a rock star in the new issue of the “Hunger” magazine. Klum’s new look is totally different than what we have seen so far because the mother of four gets a tattoo, sings and pole-dances to the song “Turn Up The Night”.

Heidi Klum has been through a lot of changes after signing her divorce papers in January 2012 and ending her seemingly happy marriage with singer Seal. Although she was very close to her ex-husband, the model managed to regain her strength and reinvent herself on all levels. This is probably why she agreed to create a totally different pictorial for the Hunger magazine.

Klum is portrayed as a tough rock star who gets a tattoo, smokes cigarettes and plays her electric guitar. The pictorial was also accompanied by a short video produced for Hunger TV in which Heidi is singing and pole-dancing to the song “Turn Up The Night”.

Even the look of the model was completely changed for this video in order to appear more like a rock star. She wears dark eye shadow and black nail polish, whereas her sexy outifits are accessorized with tough-looking rings, bracelets and necklaces. The video and the images presented by Hunger magazine are somewhat shocking because it is for the first time when we see the Victoria Secret model smoking cigarettes and, most importantly, enjoying it.

Despite her ‘bad girl’ look, the model opted for a faux tattoo instead of a real one. She even confessed reporters that she regrets having imprinted the words ‘Seal’ and ‘love’ on her skin.

Hunger is one of the rare magazines that promote cultural distinction by encouraging creativity and self-expression. The publication is known for the interesting photo shoots they create, as well as for the female and male covers they release with each edition. Heidi Klum is not the only star who has undergone a complete makeover for the magazine; Kelis, Cheryl Cole, Portia Freeman and Milla Jovovich will also feature in the latest edition of the magazine.

Chrissy Teigen Receives Death Threats After Criticizing Chris Brown

Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen found out the hard way that expressing your opinion could be dangerous, despite all the talk about freedom of speech. According to Us Weekly, Teigen received death threats on her Twitter account as soon as she criticized Chris Brown’s performance at the Billboard Music Awards.

Chrissy Teigen is, or should we say, used to be one of the rare women who continue to support Chris Brown in spite of the scandal between him and Rihanna. The model was very anxious to see the rapper perform at the Billboard Music Awards. She even wrote on her Twitter account that she expects to have a lot of fun and to enjoy the “background fits of rage” coming from the audience. Her great expectations were soon let down because Brown decided to lip sync throughout his entire performance. Apparently, the singer considered that pedaling his bike and dancing was more important than singing.

At the end of the show, Teigen returned to Twitter to tell her followers that she hates “cyclists”. She concluded her post with a sarcastic remark “Why sing when you can dance?” Chris Brown’s fans attacked the model as soon as she posted the message on the Internet.

Some of the messages that the 27-year-old sex symbol received were incredibly mean. One of the fans wrote in response that the model doesn’t do anything but talk, so she should get “raped and murdered”. Others sincerely wished Teigen to become the first “celebrity” to die. The model was willing to fight back at first; she even encouraged Chris Brown’s fans to send more negative messages because she was on a very long flight and she needed something to do. In the end, she realized the whole conversation was pointless, so she decided to end it there. She, nevertheless, wrote that she was very disappointed to see “99% of the most disturbing comments came from young girls”.

Chrissy was not the only person who criticized Brown’s appearance on stage. Pink also wrote that if she ever lip-syncs, she hopes she would be able to do it as well as the rapper. Brown made an indirect reference to the episode on his Twitter account inviting everyone to mind their own music and to make a difference if they feel like it.

Bar Rafaeli Tops Maxim’s Hot 100 List

Bar Rafaeli was voted the hottest celebrity on Maxim’s Hot 100 List which will be published at the end of this month, says the Hollywood Gossip. The model was flattered to hear that she was at the top of the chart considering that there were many other beautiful women in the list.

There was a very strong competition among celebrities who took part at this year’s edition of Maxim’s Hot 100 List. Despite this, readers did a very good job at choosing the sexiest woman in fashion or entertainment industry. The majority of them voted for Bar Rafaeli, so the Israeli model was named the hottest woman of the year 2012.

The 27-year-old actress declared in an interview for Maxim that she was honored to be considered the sexiest woman out of the 100 personalities included in the list. The title was all the more flattering as there were many other beautiful women on the last 10 positions. The second place was occupied by comedian Olivia Munn, whereas Mila Kunis, Katy Perry and Olivia Wilde received the third, the fourth and the fifth place, respectively.

This edition of Maxim’s Hot 100 List was one of a kind due to some of the persons that featured in the top. At Nr. 92 was Amanda Knox, the young woman who was convicted in Italy because she was said to have murdered her Italian colleague. Lois Griffin, the animated character from the “Family Guy” was also voted as one of the hottest celebrities, thus managing to occupy the 85th place. Stephen Colbert made it to Nr. 69, but he was the first man to feature in Maxim’s famous list of hotties.

Moving back to the winner of this year’s classification, we tried to figure out the asset that helped distinguish Rafaeli from Mila Kunis or Olivia Wilde. We think the answer could be traced back to one of her interviews in 2010. The model told reporters at the V magazine that people think she is sexy because she has “boobs”.

Rafaeli featured on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2009. However, she is particularly known for her relationship with Leonardo DiCario. The two started dating in 2006, but went through a series of separations and reconciliations until they parted ways for good in 2011.

Miley Cyrus Shows Up Pantless At Billboard Awards

Miley Cyrus finally managed to prove that daddy’s girl is all grown up: the singer showed up pantless at the Billboard Awards on Sunday. In fact, she didn’t even bothered to get a blouse because she decided that the white Jean Paul Gaulthier jacket was more than enough for the event, says Us Weekly.

I am not a fan of Miley Cyrus. Sorry, no matter how hard I try to convince myself that she is a nice person and no matter how much time I spend looking for a beautiful photo of her, I never seem to get over the fact that she is a spoiled brat who owes great part of her success to her father’s fortune. Still, I will refrain from making biased comments in this article and will refer strictly to her Billboard Awards look. So what if people around her must have been paid to tell her that she looks great even when she doesn’t? We’re just impartial news writers.

The 19-year-old singer has been trying to drop the “Hanna Montana” image and adopt a more oh- please-please- look-at-me-I’m-sexy-too style for some time now. In a recent interview with Amanda de Cadenet, she declared that she never intended to become a sex symbol; she simply adopted a more appropriate style for her age. Nevertheless, she is willing to take people’s remarks as a compliment.

Cyrus contradicted the aforementioned declaration on Sunday when she decided to wear nothing but a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes and a white jacket signed by Jean Paul Gaulthier. According to sources, the actress almost risked a nip slip because she was not wearing anything underneath the oversized jacket. Her hairstyle was also a little bit oversized, too, because Cyrus opted for a pumped up bob that didn’t seem to match her face shape.

In addition, she showed off the results of the gluten-free diet she has fiercely promoted during the past months. Miley is, indeed in a very good shape as she lost a few pounds. We’re just hoping she won’t become obsessed like many famous girls her age and develop unhealthy eating habits.

 

Brooklyn Decker Prepares Double Movie Debut

Former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, Brooklyn Decker has been very busy in the past three months promoting her new movies. The actress prepared her double movie debut as both “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” and “Battleship” were launched on Friday, according to the Associated Press.

Although she decided to hang up her famous bikini, Brooklyn Decker continues to show us her amazing body in most of her movies. I’m sure those who have seen “Just Go With It” will always remember the sequence when Brooklyn came out of the water wearing nothing but a yellow bikini swimsuit. Her roles have become increasingly complex since then, but every once in a while producers like to brag about having a former Sports Illustrated model on their sets. That is why both “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” and “Battleship” feature brief sequences of Decker’s bikini.

The actress told the press that she never intended to become a model, not to mention a Sports Illustrated star. She featured in an ad for prom gowns when she was only 16 years old and she was soon in the spotlight. Decker, however, grew more and more attracted to acting due to the numerous Tennessee Williams plays she used to read during her travels.

The “Just Go With It” star confessed that she likes travelling in order to promote her projects, but she tends to find everything a little bit exhausting. In the end, she hardly waits to get back to her home in Austin, Texas where she and professional tennis player, Andy Roddick bought a house after their wedding in 2009.

Speaking of her recently released films, the actress confessed that she might not even watch them. Contrary to what most people tend to think Decker doesn’t like to look at herself in modeling pictures or in movies because she gets really embarrassed. In fact, there are no swimsuit pictures of her in the house, so one would never suspect she was a model.

In the future, Decker plans to obtain more difficult roles because that is, in her opinion, the beauty of acting. In fact, she would even accept to go through a drastic physical change if a part requested her to do so.

 

Aishwarya Rai Criticized In India For Not Losing Baby Weight

While Vogue and health organizations struggle to promote a healthier lifestyle among fashion models, celebrities continue to face a lot of pressure from people asking them to conform to impossible beauty standards. Such was the case of former Miss World Aishwarya Rai who was recently criticized in India for not losing baby weight, says Us Weekly.

Getting back in shape after a pregnancy is the aspect that women fear the most when it comes to having a baby. As if the slimming process was not hard enough, there is also the external pressure coming from people who are quick to judge. For celebrities, it’s even worse and some of them defy all medical rules by starving themselves to death in order to lose baby weight in less than one month.

Recent comments that Aishwarya Rai’s Indian fans have made in relation to her post-baby body have opened another Pandora’s box of pregnancy debates. Bloggers and online users argue that Rai is taking too long to lose the kilograms she gained during pregnancy and this affects her career. They also mentioned the fact that Aishwarya is a Bollywood actress, not to mention a former Miss World, and therefore, it is her duty to make sure she looks perfect all the time.

Drawing a parallel between their culture and the Western society, Indian fans wrote on their websites that the actress should follow the example of American celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Victoria Beckham. The two Western stars managed to regain their skinny figures in just a couple of weeks, but the ironic thing is that they are constantly criticized for being too slim and anorexic.

One Indian site created a cruel video of Aishwarya juxtaposing images of her before and after the baby and accompanying the photos with the sound of elephants trumpeting. The actress, however, ignored the harsh criticism and declared that she prefers to enjoy her motherhood for the moment instead of focusing on her weight.

Despite the negative remarks, there have been people who tried to defend the former Miss World. They all stated that Rai is a human being, so she doesn’t have to look perfect all the time. Besides, the new mother should worry more about her health and her baby’s health instead of following drastic diets.

Miranda Kerr: “Fashion Helps Me Express Myself”

Australian model Miranda Kerr has conquered everyone’s hearts with her dainty smile and her sexy dimples. Fashion designers have often selected her for their presentations because she stands out from the rest of the Victoria Secret models. Kerr was chosen to cover the June issue of the InStyle Australia magazine where she talks about marriage and motherhood, as well as fashion.

The 29-year-old model has just been named the winner of InStyle & Audi Women of Style Beauty Award and the winner of the Readers’ Choice Award which is why she features on the June issue of the InStyle Australia magazine. Although she has been working in this industry for a long time, Miranda is still surprised and downright flattered to see that people recognize her as a stylish woman. It was, in fact, an honor for her to take part in a photo shoot for the magazine.

Kerr has worked with Chris Colls to produce the InStyle pictorial and they both got along very well. After working with Miranda, Colls is convinced that the model is a professional because she posed like a true style icon the whole time.

There are many other reasons why people in the fashion industry appreciate Miranda. She is not just a model, but also a happily married wife and an accomplished mother whose beauty line is getting bigger and bigger every day. Her success, however, comes from the passion with which she takes care of all her duties and responsibilities. Miranda tells the magazine that she is deeply in love with fashion because it is a form of art that enables people to express themselves.

When it comes to style, the model says she prefers relaxed and understated outfits. However, the clothes that she usually wears express her mood; thus, if she wants to show the world that she feels sexy, she vamps her look up. For the rest of the days, she prefers casual clothes.

Miranda is married to Orlando Bloom with whom she has a boy, Flynn. Their relationship seems to go on very well, despite their busy lifestyles. The model thinks the reason behind their successful marriage is the fact that Orlando is a very “private man”. 

Tyra Banks Supports Vogue’s Ban On Too Thin Models

A lot has changed since nowadays queen models first started in the fashion industry. Many of them seem to be quite baffled with how the industry has evolved and are outraged by the underage and skinny models. Tyra Banks is just the latest to support Vogue’s ban on too thin models.

Given the popularity of magazines and the overall media with teenagers, not to mention their influence, it is obvious what kind of message they’re sending. Thin, almost famine ravished is the new sexy, outrageously skinny gets you magazine covers, fashion catwalks and parts in commercials. Tyra Banks joins Vogue’s campaign on promoting a healthier life style for models and teenagers these days.

“When a girl is looking at a magazine with her mother, there are these subliminal images saying if you’re not a size zero, if you don’t look exactly like this, you\re not good enough” explains Tyra Banks. “So the fact that Vogue is making that mandate is the beginning of something huge” added the model.

During a toast with everything that models today are forbidden from eating, say burgers and barbecue, Tyra Banks made her pledge in Vogue’s campaign. She praised Vogue for being bold enough to take down the “unspoken rule” of the fashion industry. “Real progress is finally on the horizon. Vogue is stepping up, doing the right thing, and protecting that girl. Perhaps that girl is you” reads Tyra Banks’ pledge.

The now 38-year-old model has become a statement in the world of modeling. She’s got a track record, many beginners in the field only dream to ever achieve. As she joined Vogue’s campaign, Tyra Banks expressed worry regarding the attitude towards weight today’s designers and models have.

She even said that when she was 17 she was too fat to ever make it in Vogue. As the model confessed on “Good Morning America”, her modeling career started with pizza. She was talking to her mom in a Milan pizzeria when together they put together a strategy to make her curves work. “We crafted a strategy for how to take my curves and make them work for me as opposed to me either starving myself or bowing out of the modeling industry” said Tyra Banks.

Jessica Alba Disliked The Way She Was Treated As A Young Actress

Most women think that having the body and the face of Jessica Alba is a blessing, but the actress stated the opposite in her recent interview with Marie Claire. The mother of two disliked the way she was treated as a young actress because she was always judged according to her looks and she felt objectified.

Jessica Alba made her appearance on television as the lead female character in Fox’s series “Dark Angel”. What initially appeared to be a dream job has quickly transformed into a disappointment because the actress realized that she never wanted to be seen as a “sexy, tough action girl”. In fact, producers would constantly advise her to wear super-tight and super-sexy outfits in order to make the series more appealing to the male audience.

The 31-year-old actress has been through a difficult time proving that she doesn’t want to be considered sexy, but “chic and elegant”. She recalled that she used to carefully select her red carpet gowns and yet, people would never look at them because her body would always be in the center of attention. She always felt uncomfortable because of the comments that fashion critics used to make even though they were positive.

Jessica Alba’s efforts to look more sophisticated than sexy have paid off. The actress was recently described by designer Donatella Versace as a “fresh, but never vulgar” appearance. However, Alba confessed that her transition from sex symbol to style icon wouldn’t have been possible if it hadn’t been for her stylist Brad Goreski. He has taught the actress how to perfectly combine different styles and colors; thus, the “Dark Angel” star frequently uses denim, bright coats and floral pants to spice up her looks. Thanks to him, Alba has started wearing bold colors on the red carpet, as well.

Speaking about her favorite fashion items, the actress told Marie Claire reporters that she loves wearing boots because they are comfortable and stable. Moreover, she never leaves home without a scarf because she finds them very useful in case the weather gets chilly.
