Now you too can be a sexy scientist! Dita Von Teese unveiled her new Wonderbra lingerie line by posing with two models and an oversized pair of her wares at a launch party in London earlier today. Check out the gallery to see the goods at work.
So, it’s like, true. Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad‘s fashion conscious sidekick who has somehow managed to remain as neutral as Switzerland during four seasons of the show, has been let loose on Gotham as the star of MTV’s next big docudrama. Whit will be working for fashion designer Diane Von Fustenberg, and should start airing early next year. On The Hills, Whitney is good for a couple of weird faces and a shoulder to fake cry on, but how is that going to translate into a full thirty minutes? With a lot of help from her old friends the producers, we’d guess. [Photo: MTV]
Victoria’s Secret just gets sexier and sexier. The lingerie brand recently unveiled its latest collection, Supermodel Obsessions, which embodies “an effortless and relaxed sexiness.” Also embodying an “effortless and relaxed sexiness” is one of Victoria’s Secret’s newest Angels, Doutzen Kroes, who flaunted her bikini body while on the beach in Miami. Check out our gallery of this 5’10″ stunner.
Page Six posted a blind item this morning about a reality show judge that missed two episodes of her show thanks to a bad reaction botox reaction (supposedly her face “swelled up like a cauliflower”). Dlisted thinks it’s Project Runway‘s Nina Garcia, and—unless someone can think of another reality show judge that was AWOL for two episodes recently, Scandalist is inclined to agree. She looked fine upon her return, though, so she must have made it through the wrinkle-smoothening storm—if it even happened at all!
The Jonas Brothers, like most young men, are an excitable lot. And, based in this video from On Air With Ryan Seacrest, nothing excites them more than Britney Spears songs and clothes. Because they’re actually young girls.
While the Bros can’t confirm the rumor that they’re collaborating with Spears, Nick says it would be “an honor” to work with a singer who’s “a legend at this point.” Kevin’s favorite song of hers is “Toxic,” while Joe sticks with earlier hits like “…Baby One More Time.” Naturally.
There’s no interband friction when it comes to creating a fashion line, though. “[We] definitely would be loving to do that,” says Kevin. “We’re huge fans of clothing, and things like that.”
Joe provides a slightly more specific response, suggesting they’d love “give it a try” to work with “some of [our] favorite designers, like Jay Lindenberg or Marc Jacobs…or Ralph Lauren!”
Hey, why don’t you guys try out for Project Runway next year! You sound like you belong on the Lifetime network more than Disney anyway. [via ONTD]

It’s official. A rep for the Oscar-winning singer and actress Jennifer Hudson told People that she’s marrying I Love New York 2 cast-away Punk. The couple, who have kept their relationship as quiet as possible, got engaged Friday night on Hudson’s 27th birthday. Hudson and Punk — i.e., David Otunga (guess he just outgrew his nickname) — have been together for less than a year.
In an interview with the VH1 Blog, David was open about falling in love with New York during last year’s show, and we can’t help see irony in the fact that he’s now marrying a woman that has Dreamgirls under her belt and a new movie (The Secret Life of Bees) opening next month while New York is hussling to land a semi-respectable Hollywood gig.
Last year, we saw Punk on reality TV squirting whip cream on his bare chest in an attempt to turn on VH1′s H.B.I.C. This year, we’ll see him on the red carpet at the Academy Awards.
Jessica Simpson showed up to perform on Good Morning America yesterday (pictured, left) dressed like a QVC host who makes a living hawking porcelain dolls to grandmothers in Arkansas. Technical difficulties (besides her voice) plagued the performance, causing her to stick her tongue out as if she were licking an invisible ice cream cone (or something else we’re too classy to reference).
Over the past few weeks, Jessica’s been out and about contorting her face while flaunting a wardrobe that’s straight off the Fashion Barn sale rack. Check her out below screeching in concert in a eyelet lace corset, flannel and chunk bejeweled belt. It’s a look best left to the Warrant groupies of yesteryear, but Jess can’t control herself (or her tongue). It’s not that we want to admire Ashlee as the best-dressed Simpson, but Jessica is leaving us no choice.

Nicole Richie‘s fashion choices have been moving towards the free and flowery of late, but yesterday she looked like she was off to Monterey Pop. First she spent the day in midtown NYC, wearing loose tie-dye and bleached out cut-offs. Even daughter Harlow—who couldn’t be cuter—got in the mood with a flower print dress. Then mom stepped off to Fashion Week, where she replaced her hippie braids with a sequined headband that failed to distract from her drab white tank-top and fake leather tulip skirt (which may have once been a beanbag). It was very Helter Skelter meets Xanadu, and very wrong. Maybe her taste (if we can call it that) for Cali retro will inspire Good Charlotte to record a freak folk album.
