Items Du Jour: Jessica Alba Saves the Day, Tom Ford Confirms Next Film

Emma Watson at the Glastonbury Festival—Louis Vuitton models walked down the catwalk with temporary tattoos from artist Scott Campbell. Ed Hardy much?

—Actress Jessica Alba has completed her good deed of the week, swaying a 21 year-old Chinese woman from getting plastic surgery to look like her, in hopes of winning her ex-boyfriend back.

—Burberry’s Fall/Winter 2010 ad campaign has hit the interwebs. The photos star a beautiful and British blend of models and musicians. Great, another reason to be jealous of not being British.

—After the critical success of his directorial debut, it’s no wonder that Tom Ford is taking on a second film. Unfortunately, he’s not letting any details slip just yet.

—Emma Watson attended the Glastonbury Music Festival looking somewhat stylish. I’m loving her Louis Vuitton corset, but not necessarily agreeing with her choice in blue jean shorts.

Adriana Lima Goes Topless for V Magazine

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Editorials, Models, News,

 

Not unlike her fellow Victoria's Secret angel Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima is showing off her incredible post-baby body as well. Only with Lima, she's posing topless for the cover of V Magazine Spain. In what is appropriately titled "The Sexy Body Issue," Mario Sorrenti photographs Lima with a cute knitted Dior cardigan that she doesn't care to use. Also not surprising is the fact that you can barely see her extremely airbrushed face (not that she needs it!). The issue goes on sale July 4th, with four other models gracing the front of the magazine. Advertisements for V also tout the covers' oh-so-wonderful scratch-off feature.

Adriana Lima with husband and baby—Designer and Britain’s Next Top Model judge Julien MacDonald recently said that having a plus-size model win “makes it a joke.” Perhaps fellow British designer Mark Fast should give him some counsel, considering he was widely praised for using plus-size models in his Spring/Sumer 2010 show last year.

—Supermodel Adriana Lima poses for Brazil’s HOLA! magazine with her husband Marko Jaric and their new baby Valentina. Looks like she’s training her to model already!

Eclipse actress Ashley Greene gives into her cravings and claims that she doesn’t diet. As if we needed another reason to be jealous of her…

—Although plus-size models have been making their mark at current shows, normal people made a splash at Sao Paulo Fashion Week when they appeared on the Do Estilista runway. Despite their varying physiques, it was obvious that regular, non-models do know how to own a catwalk.

Items Du Jour: Miley Makes a Match, Janet Gets Short, and Angels Get Ads

Janet Jackson cuts her hair- While her Wal-Mart lines aren’t faring well in sales, Miley Cyrus isn’t looking too worried these days, as she flashes her leopard print bra for the public while picking up some grub. While the matching prints are a bit tacky, it’s nice to see that she’s actually wearing a bra.

- Janet Jackson was spotted in London yesterday, having chopped off her locks. While I was never a fan of the Amber Rose trend, I can’t say that I’m hating Jackson’s look!

- I love Michelle Williams and I love Chanel, but when the pair were together for the after party of her film Blue Valentine‘s premiere, I fell out of love for what looked like Grandma’s satin bed sheet vengeance. Her new short hair style is killer, but not with the plain fabric wrap.

- Think that you know everything about your favorite supermodels? Try taking this fab quiz to test your knowledge about their humble beginnings.

- Kate Moss have some fairly interesting ideas, but I do have to give it to her for innovation. The Topshop designer attended the unveiling of her latest collection in one of her own pieces, but she wore it backwards! She has this uncanny ability to wear anything so well that I doubt that anyone would’ve known had it not been in her line.
