It was a feast for the senses last night during the Victoria’s Secret 2012 fashion show at New York City’s Lexington Avenue Armory. The event featured musical performances from the likes of Rihanna and Bruno Mars, both of whom made sure your ears were being treated right. Even Justin Bieber was there to provide some live tunes for the bra-clad VS Angels strutting down the catwalk, which was sort of jarring because we still think of him as heaving a bedtime curfew.
Also present were dozens of the most attractive women in the world, seducing your eyes the old fashioned way: With lingerie. Although it should be noted that this was really elaborate lingerie. Doutzen Kroes’s attire boasted a body cage, Miranda Kerr was outfitted with swan wings and Barbara Palvin got decked out with oversized candy canes. Others wore sexified raincoats, poodle poofs and lady bug costumes, which just goes to show that some people have really freaky fantasies. But Alessandra Ambrosio brought the real fantasy as she stepped out in the $2.5 million orchid-themed “floral fantasy bra.” The full show will be seen December 4th on CBS, but take a sneak peek in the gallery below!

We’ve already told you about Alessandra Ambrosio unveiling this year’s $2.5 million Victoria’s Secret fantasy bra earlier this week. But we’re kind of surprised the folks over at VS didn’t give the honor to fellow angel Candice Swanepoel. After all, it’s her birthday today, and it probably would have made one hell of a present! The blue eyed beauty has amazingly never been chosen to show off the multi-million dollar lingerie, but then again she turns just 24-year- old today so she has plenty of time. The lovely South Africa native has already graced the covers of ELLE, Vogue, GQ and Harper’s Bazaar, plus done print ads for mega-brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Versace, Diesel and Guess. So when you look at it like that, she was probably grateful for the day off! Despite her youth, she’s already an old hand at the modeling game, having gotten her start at just 15. So in honor of her big day, let’s take a look back at her 24 hottest bikini looks of all time. Happy birthday, Candace!

Remember how we told you Alessandra Ambrosio was going to model the latest multi-million dollar bra by Victoria’s Secret? The latest of bejeweled showpieces called the “2012 Floral Fantasy” lingerie set — this one has amethysts, sapphires, rubies and a white diamond at the center — rings in at $2.5 million, and Alessandra will be wearing it in November at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It was created by Long Island’s London Jewellers, and apparently has 5200 precious stones on it. She’s stoked, obviously, saying, “It was perfect for me. I felt they made it for me. It’s very romantic.” Promotional photographs have already been released of the supermodel modeling the pieces, but we were hoping that they were touched up, as most pictures these days are. Could she really be that stunning? The answer is yes. Because she’s really that stunning in real-life. Alessandra attended the unveiling of the super expensive lingerie set at the Victoria’s Secret store in Herald Square and it was hard to stop looking at her. She wore a stunning champagne-colored draped gown with a plunging neckline that flowed over her like a dream, as you can see in the photographs above. Bra? What bra? We think she’s the one that looks like the 2.5 million bucks!

You can’t afford this hotness. Supermodel mom Alessandra Ambrosio is the lucky lady chosen to wear Victoria’s Secret’s annual multi-million dollar Fantasy Bra. Or maybe not so lucky, because it probably hurts to wear bejeweled underwear. In the past these pricey pieces of lingerie have run up to $15 million, but this year’s is valued at a more modest $2.5 million…because there’s a recession and all. The 2012 Floral Fantasy lingerie gift set is decked out with amethysts, sapphires, rubies, and a massive white diamond in the center. On the downside, it’s dry clean only.
“It was perfect for me,” says Alessandra, who will hit the catwalk in the stellar ensemble this November at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “I felt they made it for me. It’s very romantic.” The new mother found out she was the chosen angel just three weeks after giving birth to her son, Noah. “I just wanted to scream,” she says of the big moment. “But I won’t lie, I was really worried. I was in total mother mode.” She’s spent the last five months doing some serious workouts to lose the baby weight, and if these photos are anything to go by, we’d say she’s been pretty successful.

Which supermodel and which Kate, you ask? A little background first. The occasion was the 3rd Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles, and from what we’ve seen from the best-dressed lists at amfAR’s galas in Cannes, you really got to bring on the serious gownage. And while many ladies aspired to be the best, only three prevailed. So we’ll start with the Kate first — Kate Hudson. She was sexy, glamorous and totally bodacious in a fire-engine red Prabal Gurung Resort 2013 gown which featured cut-outs on the shoulders and a plunging neckline. It fit her like a glove and we loved the hair and makeup choices. The swept-back, wavy ponytail was the right choice, as was the nude, glossy makeup. The supermodel on this list is Alessandra Ambrosio. Before you yell “no fair” because she’s a supermodel, let us remind you that being a supermodel and having great style are not synonymous at all. We’ve seen some of the world’s most sought-after models make terrible sartotial choices. We’re looking at you, Erin Wasson. Alessandra picked a stunning black lace Zuhair Murad Spring 2012 gown and did a subtle smoky eye and simple hair with it, making it a no-brainer for this best-dressed list. Completing this triad was amfAR’s special guest for the night, Sarah Jessica Parker. She chose to keep it sleek and simple in a black jumspuit with flared trousers, paired with wavy hair and an architectural silver pendant. Trust her to shake things up and convert us to jumpsuit enthusiasts, which we normally are not.

Nothing like a spot of polo over the weekend. It all looks so elegant with the pretty dresses, tea and champagne. And hot polo players. The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is an annual affair that most of Hollywood’s ladies turn up for because it’s such great fashion exposure for them. By the looks of it, this year was the third time in a row they threw a quite successful event, held at the Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades, California. Ashley Greene led the festivities in a gorgeous white Antonio Berardi bandage dress with nude pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti. Kaley Cuoco looked light and summery in a printed Brian Rennie for Basler dress — love the pocket detailing. Rose McGowan was there too, wearing a purple Philip Lim jumpsuit, Brian Atwood shoes and a Bruno Magli clutch. Mandy Moore wore almost the same shade, but in a printed dress version by Lela Rose with Christian Loubotin heels. Our best-dressed goes to Alessandra Ambrosio who wore an amazing color-blocked, maxi BCBGMAXAZRIA dress. We’re also totally feeling Selma Blair‘s Skaist Taylor blue jumpsuit and Marc Jacobs sandals.
One more panel left after the jump, so have a look and tell us whose looks you dug the most! There’s Rachel Zoe, Rebecca Romjin and Lauren Conrad‘s outfits too! Read more…
Celebrities have never been shy about showing off their bodies, vacations or friends on Twitter, and sometimes they really go over the line. But there’s one thing they can never share enough of, if you ask us: babies pictures! Earlier this week, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Lily Aldridge gave us the first glimpse of her nearly 1-month-old daughter with husband and Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, Dixie Pearl. Dixie’s Twitter debut features her tiny feet in pink, bunny rabbit footie pajamas. Can we get a resounding awwww? There is no mistaking that this pic is precious, but it does come as a bit of a tease. When do we get to see this little munchkin’s face?
Following in the footsteps of Lily and other celebs who have chosen to announce the birth of their children via Twitter, Curly Sue star Alisan Porter didn’t waste any time tweeting a pic of her baby boy, Mason, born only yesterday. Other stars like Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson and Alessandra Ambrosio have also recently introduced their bundles of joy on Twitter. These adorable twitpics confirm that celebrities’ children are truly genetically blessed and living the G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S life. We look forward to the possibility of a future modeling or acting career for these youngsters, but for now, we are just happy to get to see their lovable looks. Take a look at some of the cutest celebrity baby Twitpics. They are bound to melt your heart!
Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio was just walking around Malibu yesterday with her pooch, minding her own business. She totally didn’t realise that she was going to become the subject of a new PETA diatribe. The animal’s rights organization took umbrage to the fact that her dog’s coat was dyed pink and purple. Not because it’s offensive in terms of style — though, Alessandra, a pink and purple dog may be a tad much. They’re all het up about the effects of the color. A statement by PETA reads, “What most people don’t know is that dyeing a companion animal’s fur can cause the animal stress and can lead to complications or allergic reactions that endanger the animal’s health. Our dogs and cats love us regardless of how we look; why not extend the same kindness to them?”
While we agree with what they’re saying, we feel that they should have taken time to figure out whether the dye was chemical or vegetable based. Emma Watson was recently put through the ringer because she was spotted with, what people thought was her dog, whose coat had been dyed pink. The real story was that the dog wasn’t Emma’s, it was a friend’s. Darcy the dog’s coat had been dyed pink to raise money for breast cancer awareness. And most importantly, the dye was vegetable-based and very dog friendly. So, perhaps checking with Alessandra first, instead of going straight for a press release would have been the more logical thing to do. While we really respect what PETA does, bullying people isn’t the right way to achieve their ends.

Welcome back to the ever-popular and much beloved VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards! Yes, it’s that time of year again, where we pit your favorite stripped down celebs against one another to see has the most bangin’ bikini bod of 2012. Happy summer, folks!
Step back, beach babes: It’s time to leave it to the professionals! We can’t have a bikini contest without mentioning these lovely ladies who get paid to strut their stuff on runways and beaches around the world. Kate Upton has been shaping up to be the queen of the summer with her reign on the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover and her super hot (and patriotic) GQ spread. But she definitely has some rock hard competition in the form of former SI cover girl Brooklyn Decker, not to mention mega-hot model mamas Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes. We’ll let Gisele Bundchen join in the fun too, even though she’s technically only got half of a bikini. But her husband, Tom Brady, lost the Super Bowl, so we have some sympathy for her. Factor in supermodel legend Naomi Campbell, Victoria’s Secret angel Irina Shayk and Italian superhottie Claudia Romani, and you realize that it can be anybody’s game.
Check out the gallery below, and cast your vote for the hottest super model bikini bod of 2012. The polls close at 11 p.m. on July 15th!
