The 33-year-old American supermodel, who was named FHM's 'Sexiest Woman in the World' in 2010 and regularly makes it to various other annual sexy lists stated that she will give birth by before the year is up.

"My husband and I have always looked forward to starting a family, but also wanted to enjoy just being married," said Marisa.

"Even though I'm exhausted, gaining weight and breaking out from all the hormones, I'm really enjoying my pregnancy," People Magazine quoted her as adding. "It's all for the baby so I couldn't care less!"

Kate Moss offered cameo in George Michael's new video

Prev     Next


Kate Moss, who was disappointed at not being included in the Freedom music video by George Michael, has been offered a cameo in his latest.

The 38-year-old had earlier said that she wished she'd been asked to join Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Cindy Crawford in the 1990 video.

"Kate is a huge fan of George's and always has been," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

"She's been to heaps of his concerts and she was really good friends with his ex-boyfriend Kenny Goss, too. When she said last year that she was upset she didn't get to star in the Freedom video, it got everybody involved in George's new track thinking."

"She was offered a cameo role in the new video as long as she could make it along to the studio for the shoot. She was delighted to be offered, and if everything goes to plan, she'll appear in it," the source said.

The pair is already set to work together during the glittering Olympics closing ceremony, at which the singer is due to take the stage.

Moss is appearing alongside Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Campbell to represent British fashion.

She will be sporting Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood at the big finale on August 12.

The music video Kate's got a cameo in is believed to be for Michael's new song White Light.

He finished recording the song -- which is about his battle with pneumonia last year and saw him spend time in hospital -- in April. He falls to the ground in one scene.

Last year, when Kate was asked if there were any goals she had not yet achieved in her career, she told about her regret at not featuring in the Freedom video.

"I wasn't in the Freedom video..." she had said. "I just missed it. That would have been amazing."

I don't get on with Gisele Bundchen, says D&G model David Gandy

Prev     Next


Handsome male model David Gandy, who shot to fame as the guy in the white swimsuit briefs in the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue fragrance ads, has revealed that he doesn't want to work with Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

"I don't get on with Gisele," the New York Post quoted him as telling the Daily Mail.

"We don't see eye-to-eye, we argue and we don't enjoy working with each other," he said.

Gandy, a blue-eyed 6'3" English model who has shot three campaigns with the wife of Tom Brady added that he's "not going to get on with anyone who takes it for granted or thinks they're something special."

Despite landing the D&G contract -- which received 11 million hits online and launched him as an international top model -- Gandy opened up about his success and shortcomings in the modelling business, including his few girlfriends and insecurities about his looks.

"To be honest, I don't think I'm that great looking. I've grown into my looks but at school I wasn't the guy who got the girls or who was thought to be hot," he said.

The 32-year-old admitted that he didn't have a girlfriend until he was 21 and that he's only been in three serious relationships.

The model with the chiselled cheekbones and washboard abs, who is dating British model Sarah Ann Macklin, also whined that his athletic build hindered his career for years.

"I spent years basically just working as a catalogue model because I was too big for most clothes. I can't tell you the amount of times I'd hear that awful rip as I pulled on a pair of trousers or a jacket," he said.

Now, Gandy earns around 785,000 dollars annually, which lets him indulge in hobbies ranging from collecting classic sports cars and watches to antique furniture.

"The downside is girls earn more, the upside is guys work longer," he added.

Fergie credits `juicing` for fitness

Prev     Next


Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie has revealed that the secret behind her fit body is fruit and vegetable juices.

The 37-year-old singer, whose real name is Stacey Ferguson, admits that reducing fruits and vegetables down to their liquid form is how she achieves her healthy look, thanks to a suggestion from her husband Josh Duhamel, 39.

"Josh turned me on to the book The Beauty Detox Solution, by Kimberly Snyder. It's about juicing as a way of life. I don't plan to make the switch completely, but I'm adding superfoods to my system with her green smoothie," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Shape Magazine.

However, the performer confessed that she still has cravings for unhealthy food.

"I'm famous for splurging at fast-food places. I'm currently obsessed with Taco Bell's bean and cheese burritos with extra green sauce and extra cheese. Gluttony," she said.

The singer also insisted that exercise is one thing she will never get bored of, thanks to her love of music.

"I'm glad that our music motivates people to exercise. If I had to pick just one song to run to, it would be Violet by Hole. It makes me want to run," she added.

Prev     Next


Jennifer Aniston has been offered an eight-figure deal to become the brand ambassador of skin and hair care company Aveeno.

The company sells natural-based skin and haircare products.

"Jennifer would be great for the brand because she appears to be very natural," the New York Post quoted a source as saying.

"The deal, still being negotiated, would be worth a lot of money, certainly eight figures," the source added.

The company's current TV face is dark-haired, Dutch-born model-actress Daniella van Graas.

Katy Perry covers up after opting for nude bodysuit at awards

Prev     Next


Katy Perry, who wore a nude bodysuit to perform at an awards ceremony in Canada, was spotted covering up her cleavage when she came to collect an award.

The 27-year-old singer, who wore a bejewelled nude, low-cut leotard and tights, theatrically covered up her chest and other private areas with her hands as she took to the stage to collect an award at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto.

After performing in the revealing bodysuit, she seemed shy as she returned to the stage to collect her award for International Artist, the New York Post reported.

Then as the Hot and Cold hitmaker left the stage, she used her award to protect her modesty, holding it behind her to cover up her rear end.

Perry had earlier arrived on the red carpet in a black and gold gown with a purple and a black wig.

Elle Macpherson `not worried about ageing`

Prev     Next


Supermodel Elle Macpherson has revealed that she doesn't worry about ageing because "the alternative is death and that's more scary."

The 48-year-old model has said that she is carefree about her looks -- especially with the help of her failing eyesight.

"This is 100 per cent my face. I'm the girl who believes in good hair, good makeup and good lighting," the Daily Express quoted Macpherson as saying at the launch of the new series of Britain's Next Top Model.

"Some days I look at pictures of myself and fortunately my eyesight is really bad (about the same time as my skin elasticity went my eyes did too), so I think I don't look so bad!"

"But then I look through those horrible magnifying glasses and it's terrible," she added.

Bra that boosts cleavage with pull of string back on market

Prev     Next


Twelve years after the launch of the Variable Cleavage bra, which was one of lingerie brand Wonderbra's bestsellers, the company has reissued it.

The bra hangs on a string which can be easily and quickly adjusted for the desired push-up.

Rachel Haddon, a 24-year-old 34B model from West London, was asked to have a go at the 32 pound instant wonder.

"There's a noticeable difference in my cleavage as soon as I pull it tighter," The Sun quoted her as saying.

"I could wear it all day, although I'd put it on the lowest setting for daytime. Then, when I go for drinks, I'd pull it tight to give my boobs a good boost."

"It's not too fiddly to use, you could do it under your clothes if you're quick."

"I don't think I would do it in the street unless Brad Pitt was walking towards me."

"It makes me feel really glam and looks very chic," she added.

Saint Laurent label drops Yves name in bid to modernise

Prev     More


Iconic fashion house Yves Saint Laurent is all set to be rebranded as Saint Laurent.

The change comes under the new creative control of head designer Hedi Slimane.

"All creations from the Couture House, starting with the Spring-Summer 2013 collections by Hedi Slimane, will carry the name Saint Laurent," quoted the statement released to the media.

However, all beauty and cosmetic products, including the cult concealer Touche Eclat will continue to carry the Yves Saint Laurent label.

Accessories will also continue to bear the famous YSL cross.

The name change is apart of Slimane's plan to modernise the label with a more youthful aesthetic.

He replaced Stefano Pilati as the creative director in March and is now responsible for the creative image of the brand and all its collections.

The original founder of the house -- legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent -- passed away in 2008.

He established the YSL label in 1960 after he served in the French Army and fought in the Algerian War.

He was the first couture designer to produce a ready-to-wear collection and in 1966 he revolutionised contemporary fashion with the introduction of androgynous tailoring with his Le Smoking tuxedo suits and jackets, made especially for women.

Changing the brand's name is the second big shockwave Slimane has sent through the fashion world since taking the reins.

The ex-Dior Homme and Yves Saint Laurent menswear designer, best known for his slimline tailoring and spurring on the skinny jean/blazer trend for both men and women, has refused to showcase his first collection for the fashion label to the media.

Only buyers from a select group of high-end boutiques will have the honour of seeing the cruise collection in the coming weeks.

The general public will have to wait until September when he sends the spring-summer looks down the runway at Paris Fashion Week.
