Kendra's dropping the nude act and more fashion news!



Welcome to the weekly fashion round-up, where we bring you the latest on supermodels, style, designers and everything in-between!

Which supermodel thinks her fellow countrymen should cover up? Which Hollywood bombshell is being modest about her appearance?

Here's the lowdown on the latest fashion news!

I have retired from nude modelling, says Kendra Wilkinson

Kendra Wilkinson has said that she will not get naked in her latest reality show, Kendra on Top, because she feels there is "more to life" than posing nude.

"You will see the traditional Kendra antics on my new show, but I have retired a couple things, like Playboy and the nudity," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Us Weekly Magazine.

"I just figure that there's more to life than getting nude and showing your boobs. I have added a lot of layers to my life and I'm more spontaneous now than I once was, but I don't have to take off my top," she said.

The 27-year-old star, who is married to Hank Baskett, with whom she has a two-year-old son, may have moved out of the Playboy Mansion in 2008, but she will be reunited with its owner and her ex-boyfriend, Hugh Hefner, on her new show.

'Hef comes over to my house -- in a helicopter -- and you'll see how we figure that out."

"Hef does not go to anyone's house, and he hasn't been in a normal car since he was in his 20s, so my husband has to pick him up in his pimped-out little car," she added.

Holly Madison has revealed that she wants to have kids as soon as possible.

She's even decided not to renew her contract with Las Vegas's Peepshow in anticipation that she will soon be bearing child.

"I'm not pregnant right now, but if that happened tomorrow I'd be fine with it," People Magazine quoted the former Playboy model as saying.

When asked if she is trying to have a baby now, she said, "I'm not trying to prevent it, if that's what you're asking."

Madison, 32, who has starred in Peepshow for four years, said, "I've wanted kids and that's something I'm definitely doing as soon as possible."

"It is something that the time in my life is right for," she added.

Madison said that she has several unannounced projects in the mix and would love to return to the stage eventually, but building a family has become her top priority.

"Definitely being with the right guy has a lot to do with it," Madison said.

She has been dating Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella, 37, for a little less than a year.

"My relationship is awesome. I'm happier than I've ever been in my personal life," she said.

I don't eat for pleasure, says Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed the secret behind her flawless body and attributed it to adhering to her grandmother's advice of not eating for pleasure.

The Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted star admitted that she eats for nourishment, as she believed that the taste of a meal is irrelevant to what it does for the body.

"I don't eat for pleasure," Us Magazine quoted her as telling Essence.

The 40-year-old explained that she "had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook. She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don't eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that's healthy."

Though she did acknowledge indulging in French fries and pizza, once in a while.

"I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don't fall flat on my face."

Jada's diet secrets aside, the actress and mother-of-three also reveals that she's planning to star in a movie with Will Smith, 43, her husband since 1997.

"Will is going to (shoot a film) with the boys probably, and he and I are gonna do one," she tells Essence. "He can't wait. He was like, 'You and me, next.' I was like...'Let's do it!'" she added.

Brits show too much skin in summers, says Kate Moss

Prev     Next


Kate Moss has given out fashion advice to British females by urging them to stop flashing so much skin during summer.

The supermodel thinks that people in Britain do not how to dress properly in summers, as they are not used to the heat.

"When you're driving down the road in the summer, the English people...It's not our natural thing, no. So it's 'put it awaaaaaay!'" the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Grazia Magazine.

The 38-year-old claims to have set some limits for herself, admitting that she draws the line at clothes that are too short, show too much flesh or have too much colour.

"I mean, there's things I can't wear, that I'd like to. There has to be limits. Too short. Too much flesh. Too much colour," she said.

The mother of nine-year-old daughter Lila, from her relationship with Jefferson Hack, revealed that she has made a few fashion faux pas of her own.

"I've got a problem with zips. Sometimes I just forget to do them up running out the door," she said.

Moss added that her guitarist husband Jamie Hince, one half of band The Kills with Alison Mosshart, doesn't want her to dress like a middle-aged woman.

"He would go mental if I started dressing like a wife! He likes me when I'm a rock 'n' roll kind of girl," she added.

RiRi `not happy` to be a size zero

Prev     Next


Rihanna has revealed that she is not happy about being a size zero and the effect her jam-packed schedule is having on her body.

Recently, the 24-year-old pop diva made the leap from the recording studio to the big screen with her star turn in Battleship.

"I want to do two more (movies) before touring again next year," Us Magazine quoted the singer as saying.

"My schedule is crazy!" she said.

In fact, so jam-packed is her schedule, that Barbados-born Rihanna was hospitalised for exhaustion following her appearance at the Met Ball last month, where she looked stunning in a black, reptile-inspired Tom Ford gown.

"I got no sleep (beforehand)," she said. "It's harsh on your body!"

Her hospitalisation -- and her shrinking body -- have some fans fretting that she's dealing with something more serious, though Rihanna explains that her nonstop schedule is the only thing to blame.

"I'm a size 0 -- and not happy about it!" she said.

"I went way too far. I prefer myself a bit chunkier. I want my old butt back!" she added.

The Where Have You Been singer is at work on her seventh CD.

Freida Pinto goes retro for '50s style photoshoot

Prev     Next


Freida Pinto took on a more sultry persona when she went retro for a '50s style photoshoot for a indie fashion magazine.

The 27-year-old actress was photographed for Flaunt in a short raven-haired wig that culled up images of 1950s glamour, as she batted off rumours that she's become a demanding Hollywood diva.

The Slumdog Millionaire star was applauded for her enigmatic beauty by the magazine, whose editors entitled the spread 'Freida Pinto is Museum Quality Beautiful.'

Styled in a corseted Bottega Veneta dress in a rustic shade of emerald, the actress leaned on the heels of her embellished stilettos, tugging at the straps and pulling up the hem as if restlessly trying to rip the garment away.

Pinto is hell for leather in another shot, wearing a studded Versace bustier and matching skinny jeans from the luxury label.

The look was a touch gothic, paired with a Swarovski crystal cross necklace, coiled bracelet and hoop earrings, the Daily Mail reported.

While she played the part of a seductive diva convincingly for the seaside photoshoot that accompanied her interview, the actress said that she has falsely earned a reputation in some circles.

"When I was promoting this big-budget film, some Indian media reported that I was being a diva on set, and that's the reason I did not want to come to India to promote the film."

"I'm like, 'What? I'm in fing America. That's why I can't promote the film in India'. It's not easy to be in two places at once. It's not true," she said.

Pinto, who rose to fame for her role in the 2008 Oscar-winning film, was recently seen at the Cannes Film Festival promoting her upcoming role in drama Desert Dancer.

The movie is set for a 2013 release.

I don't think of myself as particularly attractive, says Mila Kunis

Prev     Next


Mila Kunis, the sultry brunette who won a legion of male fans with her raunchy lesbian scene with Natalie Portman in Black Swan, has revealed that she does not think of herself as someone who is particularly attractive.

The 28-year-old actress reckons that it is her sense of humour rather than her looks that gets her noticed.

"I appreciate the attention but I don't think of myself as particularly attractive at all," the Sun quoted Kunis as saying.

"I also don't have that naturally sexual or sensuous way of behaving that some women have. I do have a pretty sharp sense of humour, though, and I think that has helped me," she said.

Kunis was born in Ukraine but moved to Los Angeles with her parents when she was seven years old.

Neither her father Mark, who works as a taxi driver, nor her mother Elvira, who manages a pharmacy, had any links to the film industry.

"LA is filled with the most beautiful women in the world, who all come here to be part of the entertainment industry. It's impossible to compete against that," she said.

"Some women rely on their looks to make it and others know that they need to work hard, to not just be treated as a pretty object and have a serious career."

"So I've never bought into my own beauty myth and I have always worked hard and believed in myself as an actress in order to get where I am. Nothing was ever given to me and that's the way it is for virtually everyone. You have to fight very hard to make it in this business," she added.

Kunis bagged another leading role in a major new comedy drama Ted, in which she is starring alongside Mark Wahlberg, set to release on August 1.

Miranda Kerr has revealed that she thinks being healthy and happy is more important than fame and riches.

The Victoria's Secret supermodel said that she works hard to maintain her toned body, especially since the birth of her son, Flynn, in January 2011.

"'Working 16, 17 hours, you need to know how to take care of yourself or you'll fall off the wagon. I know it's cliche, but I feel health is wealth," Contactmusic quoted her as telling British Vogue.

Orlando Bloom's wife also admitted to an exercise regime of daily yoga and Pilates to help keep her baby weight off.

"I was lucky for a while there, I just did yoga. Now I'm exercising a whole lot more, but it's for my job," she said.

The 29-year-old swears by daily supplements, including noni and aloe vera juices, goji berries, chia seeds and maca powder.

"It is a lot of work!" she added.

Cameron Diaz set to release nutrition book

Prev     More


Cameron Diaz is reportedly close to sealing a publishing deal to write her own nutrition book, which will dish out advice to her teenage fans.

The Charlie's Angels star, who announced earlier in 2012 that she would be launching her own well-being organisation, is reportedly all set to release a book which will help impressionable young girls stay fit and healthy.

"She wants to stop their fixation on being thin, and for teenage girls to understand that being healthy is more important. She wants to use her celebrity to make a difference. She knows she is a role model to girls and she really wants to use that position to do good. This book is not about weight, it's about making the right choices," the Daily Express quoted a source as telling E! Online.

"This book isn't about her. And it's not a diet of any kind. Of course, it's her own journey that has helped her realise what's important, but she wants the book to appeal to everyone, and not just be about her own food choices," the source added.
