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.

When we saw pregnant Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak posing for the cover of In Touch Weekly wearing what looked to be a hand-me down bra and a weird pair of sheer panties last week, we immediate thought to ourselves, “That woman has no shame!” After the shock wore off, we began thinking: A) What other celebrities have flaunted their baby bumps on the cover of national magazines and B) Was their pursuit of fame more naked than their actual bodies?
Well, as we discovered during an intense round of research, there are two types of celebrities who use their unborn children to score themselves more publicity: the Prudes and the Shameless. Not every pregnant celebrity wants to pull a Demi Moore, you see. Some, like Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Celine Dion, don’t want to offend their base by showing too much skin. Others, like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, clearly see Moore’s famous Vanity Fair cover as a necessary (and fun!) step in advancing one’s career and deem it necessary to push cultural boundaries. So, what do your favorite celebrities score on either the Prude Meter™ or Shameless Meter™? There’s only way to find out!

“Honey, just give the man some money and maybe he’ll leave us alone…” We noticed how lonely Brad Pitt looked when the first photos rolled in from last night’s Kick-Ass premiere in London, but we weren’t prepared for what followed: a series of shots that seem to show film producer Pitt, one of the world’s biggest stars, shyly sidling up to Claudia Schiffer and director husband Matthew Vaughn—only to be ignored by the pregnant supermodel. Did she not recognize him with that nasty beard? Did she not care that a box office hero was trying to say hi? Pitt reportedly partied at her house after the movie, but you’d never guess he wasn’t just some greasy hippie getting in her hair from the sad spectacle in the gallery below. Shave it off, Brad! We bet she’d look at you, then.

You just know Maddox is pissed about this. Kick-Ass looks like the perfect movie for Brangelina’s bad-ass son, who was gifted his first set of knives at the age of seven. Unfortunately, the film’s brutal violence and profanity (underage actors saying the c-wordest of c-words? Yeah, that will get you an R) means Brad Pitt wasn’t able to take his flock to see the highly buzzed teen super-hero flick, attending the film’s UK premiere today all by his lonesome.
Frankly, Dad looked a little sheepish standing around with nothing but his creepy hippie beard for company (and we’re not referring to Angelina Jolie—hiyo!). Will the film’s mix of young heroes and adult material lead to similar awkwardness at the box office? We’ll find out when Kick-Ass hits American theaters in April. As for Maddox, well, he can wait until it comes out on Blu-Ray.

Who knew that the housecoat our Nana wore every time we visited her would eventually become high-fashion? Claudia Schiffer did, apparently. Schiffer has taken grandma-chic to a new level, as seen here in a photo taken of the pregnant supermodel strolling the streets of London. Schiffer is a paparazzi favorite in England and is photographed regularly doing her kids’ school run in the morning, and she usually looks great, but we’re not feeling this look. Sure, our Nana never dressed up her look with tights and boots, but even those can’t make up for this bold-printed disaster.

Dropping your kids off at school when you a) live in one of the most exclusive areas of London and b) make your living as a fashion icon, is not the ordinary grab-those-jogging-bottoms and ignore-those-cornflakes-in-your-hair exercise that it would be for most harassed moms. No, Claudia Schiffer and Stella McCartney have standards to live up to, goddamnit, and turn up at the school gates looking freakishly goddess-like for 8am. Which is why we’re glad we’re not the other moms who share curb-space with them at this time – it must be so depressing.
As if Heidi Klum wasn’t graceful enough, balancing a powerhouse career as a supermodel and host of “Project Runway,” while keeping hubby Seal and their soon-to-be family of six smiling, Heidi found quite a slick way to respond to Karl Lagerfeld‘s dis of her career. The Chanel designer recently snarked, “I don’t know Heidi Klum. She was never known in France. Claudia Schiffer also doesn’t know who she is.”
Heidi responds in the new issue of Page Six Magazine, saying, “I don’t know why [Karl] said that. Maybe he wanted to be in the paper? Maybe he doesn’t understand what I do? It’s bizarre to me that he says he doesn’t know who I am because he’s dressed me in the past. I’ve worn Karl Lagerfeld. Not even Chanel—his line. Lagerfeld doesn’t just send random things everywhere, so it was a big thing for me [to wear his label] to the CFDA Awards a few years ago. I don’t know how he missed that, when he dressed me that time. But you know, it’s cool. People can say whatever they want to say. You can’t please everybody, and you can’t live your life wanting to please everybody either.”

The Cannes Film Festival is not just a film competition, but a red carpet battle to see who can bring the chicest and most glam red carpet style to the French Riviera. From Angelina Jolie in Versace to Anna Mouglalis in Karl Lagerfeld to Kerry Washington in Zuhair Murad, these stars really brought it on. Check out our gallery of the 2009 Cannes Film Festival’s Best Dressed!
Some stars bring their chicest getups to the Cannes Film Festival, and some totally miss the mark with their outfits. From sheer atrocities to overdone trim, these starlets really didn’t make the cut when it comes to red carpet fashion. Check out our 2009 Cannes Film Festival’s worst dressed gallery, which includes Dita Von Teese, Claudia Schiffer and Charlotte Gainsbourg. [Photo: Getty Images]
