Welcome to the weekly fashion round-up, where we bring you the latest on supermodels, style, designers and everything in-between!Which supermodel is taking a hiatus from her career in favour of motherhood? Which actress had a malfunction at the Golden Globes? Here’s the lowdown on the latest fashion news!’The Rachel’ was the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen, says Jennifer Aniston! Plus, the secret behind those sexy legsHollywood actress Jennifer Aniston has admitted that she hated ‘the Rachel’ haircut, the style named after her character in the US sitcom Friends.The cut, which was layered and blow-dried to perfection, was one of the favourites of the ’90s. Women besieged salons clutching photographs of the actress and demanding the same cut.But Jennifer, the true image of the style, has confessed that it was the worst style of her life.”How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen,” the Telegraph quoted her as telling Allure Magazine.”What I really want to know is: how did that thing have legs?””I love Chris, and he’s the bane of my existence at the same time because he started that damn ‘Rachel’, which was not my best look,” she said referring to her hairdresser, Chris McMillan.And for those of us who admire not only Jen’s hair, but her many other assets, the secret behind her beautiful legs has now been revealed.Jennifer, whose legs are hailed as the best in Hollywood, keeps them perfect with a budget cream costing less than 10 pounds.The 41-year-old actress, who admits to working out daily to shape her legs, was spotted using Nip + Fab Dry Leg Fix on the set of her upcoming film Wanderlust, reports the Daily Express. The star has been seen slapping on the purse-friendly cream to keep her legs plump and moisturised as she films scenes bare-legged in freezing New York.
Jennifer’s co-star from Just Go With It, model and actress Brooklyn Decker has also been in the news for beauty talk this week. The bikini bombshell gives her father credit for her fantastic figure.”I was always with other aspiring models. There were bingers and purgers, and everyone watched each other eat. It freaked me out,” the New York Post quoted her as saying in Self magazine’s new issue.”I did juice fasts and crazy diets and ended up gaining weight. My father did an intervention and got me to stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking my body,” the model said.And Decker, who stars with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler in Just Go With It told the film’s crew that when Aniston arrived for the first day of filming, Sandler whispered, “Try not to call her Rachel Green” (her Friends character).
If it’s a day ending in ‘y’, you know Kim Kardashian has some more seductive antics up her sleeve to keep herself in the news!Contrary to her claims that she is insecure and shy about her looks, the reality star has posted a picture of herself on Twitter showing off her figure in a raunchy monokini.Kim’s picture is apparently a sneak peak at an upcoming photoshoot, with her posing in the skimpy black one-piece that is barely able to contain her voluptuous figure, reports the Daily Mail.The picture was topped with bright red lipstick and heavily smoky eyes and the 30-year-old posted ‘2sexy2tweet?’ as the caption.Previously, Kardashian had told Glamour Magazine, “I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things.”
Of course, Kim’s sisters are never too far behind when it comes to basking in the limelight.This week, Khloe Kardashian sports a “wild and crazy” bondage look as she poses for magazine YRB.Kardashian, 26, showed off a series of bondage-inspired outfits in the shoot, wearing a black leather studded mask in one shot, and exposing her legs in a slashed ball gown in another.”It (the magazine) is known for being very wild and crazy with the content they publish, so I jumped at the chance to work with them!” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.She explained that the shoot was also the reason why she decided to dye her hair red.”I had been considering it, but then the shoot went so well so I decided to go for it that day,” she added.
This bit of news certainly has the fashion world buzzing!With her hair styled into a faux undercut and eyes closed, Kate Moss is barely recognisable as she poses in a passionate clinch with transgender model Lea T on the cover of the forthcoming issue of LOVE Magazine’s ‘Androgyny Issue’.LOVE editor Katie Grand has revealed how she became acquainted with the 28-year-old Brazilian model. “I was by the pool at the Copacabana Palace Hotel when I saw her. At first I didn’t notice her gender, just that she was wearing Givenchy couture and looked amazing,” the Telegraph quoted Grand as saying.Grand and T immediately became firm fashion friends, and T, who has modelled for French couture house Givenchy, became the muse for the androgynous theme of the Conde Nast title, which hits news stands on February 7.
The Golden Globes were this week and plenty of divas were in the news for their fashion choices.None, however, had as many heads turning as Mad Men star January Jones, who was snapped wearing a red-hot Versace gown that exposed more than her cleavage.Jones, 33, who presented the Best TV Series (Musical or Comedy) award with Jimmy Fallon, looked chic in the floor-length gown that left little to the imagination, the New York Daily News reported.The top portion of the actress’ dress bandaged her breasts, while still emphasising her cleavage.Meanwhile, Donatella Versace last month said that Jones, who is the face of the brand’s upcoming spring/summer ad campaign, “is chic and elegant but deeply sensual too”.
Not everyone can carry off daring outfits like Jones, though. Actress Hayden Panettiere apparently used pasties in an attempt to prevent a wardrobe malfunction at the Golden Globes awards afterparty on Sunday night, but her decision turned into a fashion faux pas.The former Heroes star arrived at the party wearing a low-cut, sheer navy dress, accessorised with two very visible adhesives covering her breasts.And a seemingly unaware Hayden was seen smiling for the photographers, reports the New York Daily News.The 21-year-old actress, who arrived with her boyfriend and heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko, was also seen promoting her latest Lifetime TV movie The Amanda Knox Story.
Unfortunately, she missed out on the award for Best Supporting Actress.Borba said the precious stones in his HD Diamond and Ruby Peel provide antioxidants and a lustrous sheen. “I always do (this on) her skin, neck, decollete, arms and the back of her hands — anything that will be possibly showing with her dress,” the New York Daily News quoted Borba as telling Instyle. The HD Diamond and Ruby Peel is still in its testing phase, but Borba said that Kunis is always happy to be his guinea pig.”Mila is one of my muses. She’ll test my stuff before everyone else and give me feedback,” he said. Borba talks about Kunis and her not-so-girly love of video games on his website. “She’s incredibly down to earth, intelligent and a fan of World of Warcraft. I can’t tell you how much I am in awe of her,” he wrote.
Miranda Kerr will not make it to David Jones’ autumn-winter launch in Sydney next month because she wants to be with her newborn son Flynn.However, the model — who gave birth to last week in Los Angeles — will still be part of the autumn-winter campaign, according to The Daily Telegraph.”Sadly, I’m not able to make the trip back to Australia as I am enjoying the first few weeks of being a new mum,” News.com.au quoted Kerr as saying.”I am so happy to still be a part of the new season for David Jones. The team flew to LA and we shot the covers needed for all the key campaigns for the season,” she said.The Sydney launch will feature some of Australia’s top models including Samantha Harris, Nicole Trunfio and Alexandra Agoston.
Katie Hillier, accessory designer for Victoria Beckham’s new line of handbags, can’t stop praising Posh Spice’s talent.”SHE designs the bags. At the start of the season, Victoria gives me a huge folder full of all the stuff she’s seen that she likes, and we work through it together,” the Telegraph quoted Hiller as saying.”Often I’ll come back with an idea and shell say no — she’s particularly picky about fabrics, which is unusual. Lots of people I’ve worked with are like, ‘It looks good — great!’, but Victoria will lick her finger and wipe it on the cloth and be like ‘Uh-oh, I can see what’s going to happen to that in the rain!'” she added.Ever since she released her handbag line Beckham makes it a point to carry her own bags instead of her collection of Hermes Birkin and Kelly bags.”She wear-tests all the bags when they’re in development, taking them everywhere she goes. All the bags are designed to fit into her life and that’s why they just work,” Hiller said.
The latest to hop onto the celeb endorsements wagon is singer Gwen Stefani — she will be the new model for L’Oreal Paris.The 41-year-old blonde said that she is excited about getting dolled up for the cameras.”I love playing dress-up, on stage or shooting videos. It’s always been one of my favorite parts of being in a band,” the New York Daily News quoted her as telling People.com
In fact, celeb endorsements are so hot it seems like they don’t even have to be around anymore to cash in on the deals!Michael Jackson’s father Joe has teamed up with a French perfume company to launch a fragrance collection dedicated to his late son.They have collaborated to create male and female scents, called ‘Jackson’s Tribute’ and ‘Jackson’s Legend’, which are inspired by plants grown at the late King of Pops Neverland Ranch, reports the Daily Star.The family patriarch sealed the deal with bosses of the Julian Rouas Paris company last month, and the fragrances have since gone into production ahead of a March 7 release in the US. A portion of the proceeds will be given to a number of the late singer’s favourite charities.
And here’s a rather suprising revelation.Mad Men star Christina Hendricks may be famous for her voluptuous figure now, but it wasn’t always so, as revealed by photos from a 1999 photo shoot for Playboy in which she looks svelte. The series of photographs of Hendricks, 35, looking slimmer in a tiny silver bikini and blonde wig were tweeted by Playboy under the heading ‘Tuesday Trivia: Who is the famous actress in this photo from the July 1999 issue?'”For those who guessed Christina Hendricks from Mad Men, way to go! She’s on the right and helped illustrate an article on summer shooters,” the Daily Mail quoted Playboy as tweeting later.The actress is seen posing alongside a bare-chested man and several bikini-clad models for the feature.
