In more Miranda news, Orlando Bloom recently captured his wife topless for the Rag and Bone Fall 2011 DIY Campaign.

The US fashion firm had asked the model to produce a DIY set of photos without the help of a stylist, and makeup.

So the blue-eyed beauty zeroed in on Bloom as her photographer, the Sun reported.

Snapped while the actor was filming The Hobbit in New Zealand, Miranda posed in a variety of places including in their hotel, and on a beach.

The first shot sees Kerr protecting her modesty while wearing nothing but a pair of jeans.

Other pictures see her fooling around on a beach while in another frame she's seen standing in the middle of a road.

Further photographs in the collection were clicked by Miranda's pal Lily Aldridge, during their stay in New York.

Katie Price has revealed that she is obsessed with sunbeds and even has one in her house.

"I cane my body like it's leather," the Daily Mail quoted the actress as telling Heat Magazine. "(I spend) 15 or 20 minutes, but my skin is quite hydrated and not as badly damaged as some people's."

Price also claimed that despite having a sunbed in her home, she still goes out at least three or four times a week for the sessions.

"It's like having a gym at home -- you end up never using it. I go and use one up the road instead," she added.

Olivia Munn has revealed that she has to drink alcohol when she works out to "trick" her mind into believing she's actually doing something "fun".

According to RadarOnline, the 31-year-old actress, who has been voted second in Maxim Magazine's Hot 100 Women 2011 poll, also said that she "literally hates" working out, and would rather play computer games than go running or climb a mountain.

"It seems weird but I drink. I drink when I work out. I literally hate working out," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"My friends ask me if I want to go hiking up Runyon Canyon in Los Angeles and I'm like, 'Why? I have the new Kinect. Why would you want to go outside? Why would you like to climb up a mountain?'

"I really do drink when I work out. I have to trick myself into thinking I'm doing something fun," she added.

The brunette beauty, who drinks tequila when she is doing her workout routine, claims that she detests exercise so much she would even refuse to run if there was a fire.

Leighton Meester revels in her own personal style of dressing and believes that it is important to add that unique touch to clothes.

The Gossip Girl star always gives her own twist to an outfit and makes sure that it looks unique on her.

"My biggest fashion tip is take something really basic and make it your own," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"You could be wearing jeans and a tee-shirt, but if you add heels that are your style, they completely change your outfit."

"It's the same with a little black dress -- if you add an awesome necklace or a headscarf or a bag, that makes it special."

Meester, who jazzes up whatever she wears, consider heels to be her essential fashion item.

"My essential fashion item is a great pair of heels. They just give you that extra oomph," she added.

Karl Lagerfeld has revealed that he thinks Coco Chanel would have hated the work he does as creative director of Chanel.

The 78-year-old fashion designer also said that he was able to do good work for the fashion house because he was given complete freedom by the owner.

"I have it in my blood. When I was asked to Chanel, it was not trendy. I made something of it because I was given total freedom by the owner," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

"What I do Coco would have hated. It's my job to keep Chanel updated," he added.

Designer Christian Louboutin finds wearing heels 'orgasmic'

Christian Louboutin has revealed that he finds wearing stilettos comparable to having an orgasm.

The designer considers that heels have a far more powerful effect on ladies and their libidos.

"Wearing high heels is like having an orgasm," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

Louboutin mentioned a meeting he had with a French academic to The Sunday Times.

"She said that what is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman's foot when she orgasms."

"So putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation."

Louboutin, who creates achingly high heels that cost hundreds of pounds, believes that women are willing to suffer the pain.

"There is an element of seduction in shoes that doesn't exist for men."

'A woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes," he added.
