Want to know what's happening in the world of glitz and glamour? In our weekly fashion round-up, we bring you the latest on supermodels, style, designers and everything in-between!

Which Hollywood movie star refuses to go on a diet?

Which singer has posted a super hot bikini picture of herself on Instagram?

And which model is all set to star in the Entourage flick?

All this and more glamour news from around the world.

We start out with Lady Gaga who has revealed a high-tech, white vehicle, which she bills as the world's first flying dress, at a launch party for her new album at Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The battery-powered dress has six booms in a hex formation.

The 27-year-old singer, who calls the dress Volantis, said that it maybe a small step for the dress but a big time step for herself, the New York Post reported.

The Applause hitmaker explained that it's essentially a vehicle.

She further added that the dress is essentially a metaphor for her, as she will be a vehicle for the youth's voices.

Wearing a black leotard and helmet, she donned the dress, controlled by a technician whom she referred to as pilot, and lifted off the warehouse pavement.

While on Lady Gaga, the popstar has slammed a photoshopped cover pic of herself at Glamour magazine's annual Women of the Year party.

The 'Poker Face' hitmaker while accepting an award at the event said that she felt her skin looked too perfect, her hair looked too soft and that she doesn't look like that when she wakes up in the morning, Stuff.co.nz reported.

Gaga also urged the girls to "fight back against the forces that say one has to be beautiful" and called for the publications themselves to change.

She added that it is fair to write about the change in magazines. But what she wants to see is the change on the cover, because when the covers change, that''s when culture changes.

Happiness is a choice we make: Miranda Kerr

Supermodel Miranda Kerr feels that happiness can be achieved by being positive and taking things in good spirit.

The 30-year-old model, who recently split from husband Orlando Bloom, 36, said joy can come from not thinking about the negativity, reported Us Magazine.

"If I'm having a challenging moment, I jump for joy. Literally. After a minute, I feel better, and after a few minutes, I'm really happy," Kerr said.

"Everything else just drops off. It gets me out of my head and into my body, and it makes me feel present," she added.

But Kerr understands that being optimistic is not easy.

"Happiness is a choice we make. You can wake up and say, 'Oh, I can't believe it's so cold,' or you can say, 'Oh, wow,
this is a great opportunity for me to try out my new sweater'," she said.

"No one can be consistently positive, but why not make the choice that makes you feel better rather than the one that drags you down?," she added.

The 23-year-old actress -- who plays the female lead in the adaptation of Suzanne Collin's Hunger Game novels, said she does not care about her diet, reported Femalefirst.

"During Hunger Games, when I was eating ungodly amounts, I used to tell myself, 'Stop eating, people are going to see this. This movie is going to be around forever.' But nope! I was like, I still want candy and I still want a hot dog!," she said.

The Oscar-winning star, who famously bares all in X Men: Days of Future Past, said she could not find the motivation to workout.

"Then X-Men started, and I thought, 'Oh definitely, I'll workout and diet.' But nope. Not me!"

Batman Returns star Michelle Pfeiffer is open to cosmetic procedures, if they seem inconspicuous.

The 55-year-old actress said that plastic surgery seems a fine option as long as the skin does not show that it has undergone a procedure, reported Contactmusic.

"It's OK that I don't look 30 or 40 any more. It's OK with me, it's enough for me. Would I like to look 30 or 40? Well, yeah! But, you know? We all get here eventually," Pfeiffer said.

"If I thought it would look better, I would have (plastic surgery). I'm all about, 'Do it so you can't tell it's been done.' You know what? I'm good with that. But I think people just want more and more until eventually that strange body effect happens," she said.

Kate Hudson has claimed that she can't afford designer clothes, therefore she has to borrow them.

Hudson said that she doesn't live a glamorous lifestyle and all of the couture clothes she wears are borrowed because she 'can't afford' to buy them.

She said that she doesn't own her red carpet wardrobe, not because she doesn't want to, but because the designer duds are too pricey.

According to Harper's Bazaar, the 34-year-old actor said that there are certain things that she spends on but it's very rare, especially when she has two kids and their school tuition, Radar Online reported.

Hudson reportedly is worth a whopping 38 million dollars according to Celebrity Net Worth, lives in a $5.3 million mansion in California's tony beach city the Pacific Palisades, and she also apparently raked in a whopping $7 million for her recent hit movie Bride Wars.

The Friends With Benefits star said that he has made a career out of doing things he should not be doing and he wasn't cool about it.

Timberlake added this is because being cool would have meant he passed up on those opportunities, because you're afraid.

Actress-turned-fashion designer Ashley Olsen finds herself too busy to give her full attention to the acting projects.

Olsen, 27, alongwith with her twin sister Mary-Kate co-founded luxury fashion brands like The Row, Elizabeth and James and the more affordable lines Olsenboye and StyleMint, reported E!Online.

"I was reading scripts, and ultimately I just said to the people who were representing me, 'I need to do things 100 per cent. I don't feel like I can give you 100 per cent of my time," Olsen said.

"There's a lot of compromise in the entertainment industry. I can't sit in this room and audition for this part," she added.

The twin sisters shot to fame by sharing the role of Michelle Tanner on the 1987 popular television series Full House.
