Here's the lowdown on the latest fashion news!

Kelly Brook models for her new lingerie line

Kelly Brook modelled her new lingerie collection for high-street chain New Look in a sizzling new photoshoot.

The glamour model's affordable lingerie range, which includes striking leopard prints, lace and polka-dot designs, is designed to flatter larger figures and includes bras in sizes 34B to 36F.

Kelly, 32, who is dating rugby star Thom Evans, is seen with sexy, smoky eyes and hair pulled up in 60s-style bouffant, in the raunchy new photos.

"I am so excited about my second lingerie collection," the Mirror quoted her as saying.

"It's gorgeous and feminine with a few sexy pieces thrown into the mix. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do," she said.

Gisele Bundchen replaces Kate Moss as the face of jewellery line

Kate Moss, who has been dropped as the face of NY jeweller David Yurman, has been replaced by Brazilian catwalk queen Gisele Bundchen for the season's new collection.

The 38-year-old, who has modelled for the brand for eight years, was snubbed after she allegedly upset Yurman by posing for photographs for fashion house Fred, with whom she co-designed a jewellery line.

In the shoot, the supemodel went topless, just as she had in the Yurman campaign and the two campaigns were strikingly similar, the Daily Mail reported.

"The Fred campaign is embarrassingly similar to the one David Yurman ran a year ago," the designer had said back then.

"We are confident consumers know the difference," he said.

A source close to the jewellery house too spoke about the row between the two.

"David decided that after Kate's faux pas she just wasn't the right fit for the brand any longer," the source said.

Nelly Furtado has admitted that she used to used to hit the gym just to look her best on photoshoots, but now she exercises only to stay healthy and fit.

The 33-year-old singer says that after spending four years on a 'journey' with herself, she is now more confident she works out for the right reasons.

"Over the past four years I've been on something of a journey about my body. I used to be like lots of people in the business, 'I need to go on the treadmill for the next photoshoot'," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"No, you need to train your body for the health of your heart, for flexibility, for your bones, your blood, our nerves, your cells. Not how you look. Working out for aesthetic purposes seems, so...," she said.

The Canadian singer also admitted that she has learned to eat correctly and does not confuse food with 'love'.

"I mean, you've got to learn to eat for the right reasons. To eat for nourishment. Not to confuse eating with love, as many families do. Not to eat because you don't drink, don't smoke, don't have any vices," she added.

Britney Spears has reportedly been asked to ditch her "ragged" hair extensions before going on The X Factor.

The popstar was apparently told to smarten up her image by reality show boss Simon Cowell.

She was advised to improve her hair, makeup and wardrobe choices after she arrived at the filming of an episode wearing an outfit that revealed she had gone bra-less.

"It was made clear she is expected to be impeccably dressed and made-up for the show," the New York Post quoted a source as saying.

"And none of those ragged hair extensions," the source added.

Representatives at the singing show have denied rumours that Simon ordered Britney to sack her stylist.

However since the alleged incident took place, the blonde star has had a more professional appearance.

Katie Holmes, whose divorce with Tom Cruise was finalised only on Monday, will be showing her new designs at New York Fashion week next month and has a string of film roles and a Broadway show to come.

The 33-year-old actress has the successful 'Holmes and Yang' company with her stylist Jeanne Yang and they have decided to present the line at one of the most prestigious events of the fashion year.

Her show falls on the same day as one-time best pal Victoria Beckham's showing of her new collection.

"This is a big deal for Katie to show in the tents under the full attention of the fashion editors and the glare of media scrutiny," the Daily Express quoted a source as telling the New York Post.

"They could have done a small show elsewhere so this proves she and Jeanne are very serious about their business," the source added.

Victoria's Secret sued for $15m by hosiery supplier for selling 'knockoffs'

Zephyrs, a New Jersey retailer of Italian hosiery, is suing Victoria's Secret and its parent company Limited Brands Inc., for using images of its sexy stockings on its packaging and displays, while selling the consumer a lower-quality product.

The company alleges that the lingerie giant uses cheaper, "knockoff" hosiery to cut costs, thereby endangering its business and reputation.

"Victoria's Secret changed the product in the packaging but didn't change anything else except 'Made in Canada' on the back of the package," the New York Daily News quoted Joseph Gioconda of Gioconda Law Group PLLC as telling Women's Wear Daily.

"It used to say 'Made in Italy'," he said.

The company claims the inferior thigh-highs have irregular borders, missing heel reinforcements and shoddier construction.

The company is suing for 15 million dollars, claiming unfair competition and false advertising.

Zephyr is also asking the court to order Victoria's Secret to yank the misleading packaging and displays, and to issue a recall for its Lace Top Fish Net Stockings, Fish Net Thigh-Highs With Backseam, and Signature Stripe Thigh-High With Bows.

The suit also claims that Victoria's Secret is strong-arming them into signing an agreement that would demand they surrender all their designs and intellectual property.

Gioconda told the legal blog Above the Law that his client's case has serious legs.

"As the jury's verdict in the Apple/Samsung decision reflects, designers' rights must be protected, regardless of whether the infringer is a small, fly-by-night operation or a large corporation," he said.

Secret behind Angelina Jolie's glowing complexion revealed

Angelina Jolie uses a sculpting facial gel, dubbed as the 'Liquid Facelift' to maintain her youthful appearance, it has been revealed.

Beauty product Dragon's Blood, works by adding essential volume to the hollow skin.

It claims to plump, sculpt and lift the complexion while protecting it against ageing and reducing skin sagging.

Celebrity facialist Nuz Shugaa who works with Rachel Weiz and Amanda Seyfried, as well as Jolie, said that the mother-of-six relies on the gel to maintain her youthful appearance.

"Angelina needs to keep her skin plump and hydrated to maintain the youthful radiance she is famed for," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"Lack of sleep, hectic lifestyle with extensive travelling all contribute to depleted levels of hyaluronic acid -- which result in the skin looking tired, dry and dull. This incredibly ageing to all women in their thirties."

"I recommended the Dragon's Blood's sculpting gel to Angelina as it gives her a dewy complexion (for appearance of sleep!) with added volume which define her beautiful high cheek bones," she said.

The Wanted actress, who is currently preparing to marry Pitt, has apparently been using the product since February.

Dragon's Blood, priced at 75 pounds, is made from the red sap of the sangre de drago tree and sold-out within minutes when it was first launched earlier this year.

Jessica Simpson is said to be racing against time in a bid to shed her post pregnancy weight before she makes her debut TV appearance on September 11.

The singer will appear on the first episode of Katie Couric's new primetime chat show and will discuss challenges such as losing her baby weight, getting past nasty rumours and balancing a baby and a career.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Simpson, who signed a deal with Weight Watchers, has a lot riding on her ability to shed the estimated 70lbs that she gained before her daughter Maxwell's birth on May 1, the Daily Mail reported.

Her contract requires a 20-30 pound loss by the end of August and she is sticking religiously to the Weight Watchers plan.

The 32-year-old has set herself the goal of reaching 130lbs and if she doesn't come through, she won't be paid a four million dollars signing bonus.

Katy Perry sports fiery orange hair for new shoot

Katy Perry has changed her look yet again, as she flaunts flaming orange tresses for her latest magazine shoot.

The 27-year-old singer is virtually unrecognisable with the fiery hair on the cover of French magazine L'Officiel Paris, the Daily Mail reported.

With the long tumbling locks and her porcelain skin which is made up with lashings of blusher, Perry's look is reminiscent of animated character Ariel in The Little Mermaid.

The photoshoot was done for the publication by Cuneyt Akeroglu and sees the Hot n Cold hitmaker offsetting her scorching hairdo by sporting a peach dress by Louis Vuitton with black detailing.

It's unclear if the makeover will encourage Perry to adopt orange locks on a more permanent basis.

The star is currently favouring jet-black locks in a simple bob hairstyle.

This year alone she has modelled purple and blue locks, while last year she enjoyed a stint of pink hair while also going blonde.

Katy is, in fact, a natural blonde, but has spent years maintaining her hair as a brunette, which includes dying her eyebrows and eyelashes as well.

Fans of the Duchess of Cambridge will now be able to copy her style -- with an app.

Ex-actress Helen Barclay has created a mobile aid to help women emulate the iconic "Kate effect".

Helen, 28, has sold thousands of her 69p app, called Kate's Style List, to keep users up to date 24/7.

They can find out about Kate's designers and find out where to buy her sought-after high street items -- such as the five-pound Next scarf she wore during the Olympics.

"I'm obsessed with Kate's style. I love her jean and jacket combos matched with little chiffon shirts," the Sun quoted Helen, from Birmingham, as saying.

The app is selling particularly well to Americans.

"More and more people are modelling themselves on Kate. The great thing about her style is that she mixes the high street with designer wear," she added.
