Who has posed topless for a magazine cover?

Why is Angelina Jolie consuming ancient grains?

Which pop diva is launching a skincare range?

All this and more in this week's glamour news round up.

We start out with Victoria Beckham who says she's been setting trends from the time she was in school!

Singer-fashion designer Victoria Beckham used to revolutionise her school uniform with extra socks.

The Spice Girls star said she has always taken a keen interest in fashion and found a way to make her compulsory school outfit look less horrific, reported Contactmusic.

"I created a fashion where you'd wear two pairs of socks -- one pair on top of the other because it kind of bagged around the ankle.

"In my eyes, it changed how you looked in this horrific school uniform. It spread like wildfire," she said.

And the 39-year-old mother of four said she used a Gucci carrier bag to keep her books and belongings to school.

"It was a Gucci carrier bag -- not a proper Gucci bag, a carrier bag that I would lug all of my books to school in.

"I would use that day in day out, until the bottom of the thing fell out."

Twilight star Kristen Stewart says even though she prefers the natural look in her everyday life, there would always be an eyeliner in her handbag.

The 23-year-old actress, who was made the face of fashion house Balenciaga's new perfume Rosabotanica, said she likes wearing glamorous make-up for special occasions, reported E!Online.

"I never wear a lot of make-up. That was never something I liked. But black eyeliner is always in my bag. I like the messy look," Stewart said.

"I always wash my face before I go to bed, but I never clean around my eyes and that looks great in the morning," she added.

The actress enjoys dressing up for photoshoots.

"I really like getting dressed up for photoshoots or movie premieres.

"And I like bold eye make-up -- if it suits the event. But to be honest, everything you see on the red carpet is down to the hard work of stylists.

"In my private life I prefer a natural look," she said.

A UK company believes that men should be able to wear anything they wish, including male leggings.

Amongst the celebs, Russell Brand, Lenny Kravitz, David Beckham have stepped out wearing 'meggings' and have certainly pulled them off.

East London-based firm sTitch Leggings, which was set up in Oct 2012, has designed a range inspired by the celebrity trend, priced 25 pounds a pair, that its founders claim can look good for any occasion, the Daily Star reported.

sTitch Leggings were created by Tom Hunt, Luke Shipley and Joe Hollinworth, after they went to a fancy dress party wearing 'ill-fitting female leggings'.

Now they have dedicated themselves to bring meggings to the masses. Hunt said meggings are the natural evolution from the skinny jean and the once widespread baggy jean.

A model has spent more than 20,000 pounds on cosmetic surgery in order to look like her idol Pamela Anderson.

Carolyn Anderson, a subject of Channel 5's 200 Nips and Tucks And I Want More! documentary, said that she had her first boob job when she was 21, but she was naive then and should have researched about it more, the Mirror reported.

The 29-year-old model has admitted that she wants another boob job, despite having undergone 19 procedures already.

However, her investment in cosmetic procedures has a business reason too, with Carolyn having created a "Scouse Pammie" brand selling T-shirts, poster and calendars bearing her likeness.

In addition to keeping a beach-ready bronze, Carolyn has Botox and lip fillers every six months, teeth whitening once a year, facials, false eyelashes, hair colouring and extensions and a list of other regular beauty treatments.
