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.

We begin staring at them, wondering if they’re merely the result of a big burrito lunch; then, soon enough, we marvel at their size in proportion to their petite carriers and placing bets on when they’ll pop — yes, we’re talking baby bumps. Particularly those sported by our favorite pregnant celebrities. It’s fascinating how some famous ladies, like Megan Fox and Gisele Bunchen, play coy for months, hiding behind cleverly draped dresses or simply ignoring questions when we know they’d never allow themselves to acquire food babies like the rest of us. Others, like Snooki, Tori Spelling and Vanessa Lachey, flaunt their bumps like crazy, posting pics on Twitter, posing in front of the paps in revealing outfits. To each her own!
But once again, we’d like to make their beautiful maternal bodies into a fun little game to while away your summer afternoon. Guess the celebrity baby bump! And don’t cheat by studying the thumbnails here; that’s just silly.

See ya later, selfies! There’s a new social media photography cliche in town! And this one makes you look like you’re an attraction at Sea World. In the past few weeks, several of the fame world’s fabbest figures have found a new way to flaunt their physique: by posting underwater photos of themselves swimming to Twitter. Model Bar Refaeli kicked off the trend in July by tweeting a photo of herself in a pool with the caption “Feels Like Teen Spirit.”
We’re guessing that the Kardashians are huge Nirvana fans, because they soon jumped on the bandwagon, with Kim getting snapped in a similar but more choreographed pose. Never ones to do things alone, she had sister Kendall lend her a hand with her own underwater dolphin pic. And yesterday, Victoria’s Secret Angel Marisa Miller posted her own rendition of the look, showing off her burgeoning baby belly in the process. Are you down with this new Twitter trend? It’s pretty easy, as long as you’ve got a waterproof phone case and a pool. Oh, and a rockin’ bikini bod, apparently!
Have you noticed how, over the past two years, all our favorite supermodels have been getting married and having babies? Everyone from Kate Moss to Alessandra Ambrosio to Adriana Lima to Miranda Kerr, to most recently, Molly Sims. And now it’s Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated hottie, Marisa Miller‘s turn. Marisa and her record producer husband, Griffin Guess, have been together for six years now and have announced that they’re going to have their first child. She told People that “the time feels right. My sisters and I will all have babies in 2012, so it’s such an exciting time.” She also added, “My husband and I have always looked forward to starting a family, but also wanted to enjoy just being married.” Marisa, who is 33-years-old, is due in the late fall and is thoroughly enjoying carrying her baby. She revealed, “Even though I’m exhausted, gaining weight and breaking out from all the hormones, I’m really enjoying my pregnancy. It’s all for the baby so I couldn’t care less!” With those genes, we’re can only guess as to how beautiful this baby is going to be. They haven’t releases any news on whether they’re expecting a boy or a girl, and we don’t know if they know themselves yet. Major congratulations to the new soon-to-be parents!

….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?

While most of us would agree that it’s a stretch to still describe baseball as being Our National Pastime™, there’s little sense denying that every playoff baseball game played during the month of October is laden with the kind of dramatic tension that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand at attention. This post, however, is not really about celebrating the magic and mystery of America’s most revered professional sport. Rather, it’s about the celebrities who trot themselves out to the pitcher’s mound before games to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
First, the facts: Every single Major League Baseball team plays 81 home games during the course of the season. This means that the poor public relations department of each team has to come up with 81 different ways to get the crowd excited before a game. In some of baseball’s larger markets, teams draw upon their access to a range of different celebrities, a list that runs the gamut from Hollywood’s A-List to downtrodden reality television flameouts, to get their fans excited over a long and often monotonous season. So we here at TheFABLife thought you would get a kick out of seeing celebs of all magnitudes — most of whom are not exactly known for their athletic abilities — attempting to throw a baseball sixty feet and six inches. So, if you pardon the expression, who throws like a girl and who throws like someone who could be called up to The Show? Now’s the time to find out. Play ball!
Jocks like Shaun White, Terrell Owens, and Reggie Bush were treated to a plethora of eye candy on the red carpet of the ESPY Awards last night. There was a lady of every flavor worthy of walking hand-in-hand with a world-class athlete.
Fancy married swimsuit models? Marisa Miller was in full bombshell mode in a slinky black dress. Prefer rising actresses unafraid of wearing nothing but body paint? Twilight‘s Ashley Greene had her toned thighs ablazin’ in all red. What about that crazy outfit-wearing ex-girlfriend of Kanye West? Amber Rose was at her most elegant in a canary yellow gown. Do none of these ladies fit the future wifey bill? We’ve got Emmanuelle Chriqui, January Jones (Adrien who?) and Erin Andrews in the gallery below.
