Adriana Lima on her own is enough to cause a heart to suddenly sieze up. Adriana Lima sexily dangling a bra in front of your face is whole other ball game altogether. That causes spontaneous combustion. But that’s what happened yesterday, when Adriana was in New York, showing off the latest weapon in Victoria’s Secret arsenal — the Showstopper bra collection.
Looking leggy in a cut-out white sheath and Louboutins, the supermodel answered a slew of questions coming in from all sides. You wouldn’t think it, given her schedule, but Ms. Lima’s a huge fan of T.V shows! Her favorites? She answered, “There is a few: I watch Mad Men. Ah yes, The Good Wife! I lovvveee The Good Wife, it’s really good. That’s my thing now.” Not listening to us? We don’t blame you. Go ahead and gawk at the pictures.

….We’re sorry. We’ve been trying to write the intro to this post, but we can’t help looking at the swimsuit clad goddess up above. Chances are good that you’re having the same problem and aren’t even reading this. We understand. Marisa Miller has been distracting readers ever since she first graced the pages of Victoria’s Secret catalogs in 2002. Sports Illustrated, Vogue, Maxim, Elle, Esquire, GQ…there are dozens of publications with articles we’ll never be able to read, all because our eyes won’t tear themselves away from her fantastic physique and bikini body. They don’t call ‘em “Angels” for nothing. And would you believe Marisa turns thirty-three today?! So to celebrate we present you with thirty-three of her hottest bikini shots. Not that we have to tell you that…we’re sure you went straight for the gallery. Are you listening to us? Is there anyone there? Hello?
New mom/God’s masterpieceÃ‚Â Miranda Kerr has been looking so seriously svelt lately that we’d startedÃ‚Â thinking thatÃ‚Â theÃ‚Â whole pregnancy thing was a hoax. But the latest member of the Platinum Super-MILF Club appeared on Conan last night and offered up some intimate details that made us change our tune.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I had made my mind up that I was going to have a natural birthÃ¢â‚¬Â¦then the doctors said Ã¢â‚¬ËœOk, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to have to be induced because thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not enough fluid for the baby,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ so I was induced,” she told Conan. “And then, it was 27 hours later with not one drop [of pain medication] because IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d been determined IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d do it.” 27 HOURS YOU GUYS! Think about the worst day you’ve ever had, and then add 3 hours to that!
And it was no walk in the park for husband Orlando Bloom, either. Ã¢â‚¬Å“He was there every moment by my side, I mean I never even let him go to the bathroom. I made him pee in a bottle.” Damn, that’s pretty intense. But after seeing pics of her at yesterday’s Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Summer Edition launch, we realized that we’d happilyÃ‚Â shun plumbing for the rest of our lives if it meant we could be married to her. Check out the gallery below and see what we mean!

Why, Mrs Brand, you little minx, you! It’s hard for a non-model to stand out when models are dressed in sexy lingerie (actually, it’s hard to stand out next to a model, period). But Katy Perry – one of this year’s VH1 Divas - did just fine at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show held in New York yesterday.
The newly married singer rocked the stage in two saucy Todd Thomas outfits and sang Teenage Dream, Hot N Cold and California Gurls. Missing on the runway were Heidi Klum (who retired as an Angel), Doutzen Kroes and Miranda Kerr (who are both pregnant). Keeping the sexy-flag flying on the runway wereÃ‚Â Rosie Huntington-Whitely,Ã‚Â Adriana Lima,Karolina Kurkova andÃ‚Â Alessandra Ambrosio. Good enough, don’t you think?
Wonder if Miss Katy got some sexy goodies for performing at the show. Husband Russell Brand‘s probably hoping so! Check out just how awesome Katy-cat looked in the gallery below and be sure to watch her onVH1 Divas: Salute the Troops on Sunday, Dec. 5 at 9PM ET on VH1! In the meantime, salute the troops with a pic and a click! (VH1 will donate $1 for every pic shared).
This scene has been brought to you by obscene amounts of money. Apparently the folks over at Victoria’s Secret had an extra $2 million lying around and decided to make this bra. Then they decided to make it even more desirable by putting it on Angel (literally and figuratively) Adriana Lima and sending her out in a classic Rolls Royce to cruise the streets of New York, one of the most expensive cities in the world. Excuse us while we cry into our lunch of ramen noodles.
According to People Magazine, the Bombshell Fantasy Bra is made from “glittering constellations of white diamonds, topaz and sapphires with bedazzled straps atop a blushy gauze push-up bra.” This geologist’s dream weighs in at an incredible 142 carats. But if you ask us, it still looks a little chintzy next to the $15 million Red Hot Fantasy Bra Gisele Bundchen rocked for Victoria’s Secret in 2005. Then again times are tough, and in this economy we’re lucky to have a multi-million dollar bra at all. So be grateful, people!

This explains a lot. Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr were engaged in June and married a month later in a super secret ceremony. What are the possible reasons to dash to the altar? Bring crazy in love. Sure. Being pregnant? Bingo!
Miranda Kerr is pregnant joining the list of very hot Victorias Secret mammas and mom-to-be’s (like Doutzen Kroes). And just like fellow models Inc. - Heidi Klum, Gisele Bunchen, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio – they’ll probably lose the baby weight 1.5 seconds after.
Kerr’s been trying to keep the news on the down-low but the news has spilled out. A source revealed, “She’s definitely pregnant… Miranda’s thrilled. She’s telling all her friends, mostly other models, about it.” Her friends are also stating the obvious. It’s going to be rather hard for her to give birth unnoticed considering her proclivity for posing not particularly covered up! A source commented, “She poses in lingerie. It will be obvious soon enough.”
Congratulations are in order! But we have one question. Now that she’s married, is she going to be Miranda KerrBloom? Say it’s so!

Congratulations Victoria’s Secret! The company recently celebrated 15 years of their swimwear catalog, with a party in Los Angeles and a poolside fete featuring Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio (pictured) in bikinis. We’d like to take this moment to honor Victoria’s Secret for making strides in creating masturbation material suitable for experimenting 11-year-old boys across the globe. Here’s to another 15 years of catalogs that spend most of their existence hidden under pubescent pillows. Bravo!

The holidays are truly upon us. We know this because the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is taping. Recognizable Angels like Ana Beatriz Barros, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Selita Ebanks, as well as some newcomers, were snapped backstage in the midst of hair and makeup, proving good genes require little glam. See pics below, as well as some of the models posing dolled-up. The puppy truly seems gratuitous. [Photos: Getty Images]

Victoria’s Secret unloaded an army of models from a yacht and invaded the beach with a photo shoot in advance of its fashion show on Saturday. The show, which also served as a celebration of the reopening of the Fontainebleau resort (once a playground for the Rat Pack), featured an Usher performance, angel wings, plenty of panties and a $5 million dollar bra made of black diamonds and rubies. Recession, you say?
It’s been a buzzworthy year for Victoria’s Secret models — and it’s not just mega-celebrity Heidi Klum that’s capturing all of the attention. Marissa Miller topped Maxim‘s Hot 100 List. Miranda Kerr made headlines last week with rumors that she’s engaged to Orlando Bloom. Alessandra Ambrosio stumped the bra and panty modeling world by returning to the runway a mere three months after giving birth. Brazilian papers claimed that Karolina Kurkova has been doing fashion shows with “cellulite on her butt.” Whatever. And Adriana Lima made an appearance on Ugly Betty. Bring her back, please.
