Madonna strips off 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 A-lister has shrugged off her 'fashion icon' tag? Which supermodel is providing an insight into her life?

Here's the lowdown on the latest fashion news!

Madonna poses naked in new 'airbrushed' perfume ad

Madonna, who strips bare to promote her new perfume, looks several decades younger than her 54 years in the arresting ad to promote her Truth or Dare by Madonna Naked scent.

The Queen of Pop has spent much of the year flashing the flesh at her live shows, and she's gone the whole hog on this occasion.

Only this time, she's arguably had the years turned back by a generous helping of the airbrush.

Striking a seductive pose with her hands behind her head, Madonna's blushes are spared by the bust-concealment of her new perfume's logo, the Sun reported.

The singer has been heavily criticised for refusing to gracefully accept middle age, choosing instead to defy her years onstage by donning youthful attire like a cheerleader's outfit.

However, a recent shot of her in New York showed Madonna looking every bit her age.

She wore a cosy gorilla hat for her low-key visit but her au naturel face appeared wrinkled.

Lara Stone dared to bare in her raunchiest shoot yet by posing in an eye-popping full-frontal shoot, wearing just stockings with a cape draped over a shoulders.

In another X-rated picture, comedian David Walliams' supermodel wife is naked from the waist down under a sheer black dress.

The 28-year-old was coaxed out of her clothes by photographers Daniele and Iango for the latest issue of i-D Magazine.

Stone seems to be clearly happy with the results, tweeting the cover picture to her 58,000 followers this week.

She clutches a flower to her face in the photo, her breasts bursting out of a skimpy top.

"Love love love my new cover for @ID_magazine Winter issue! By Daniele&Iango What do you think?" the Sun quoted her as tweeting.

Every woman wants to be objectified, says Cameron Diaz

Prev     Next


Cameron Diaz enjoys being looked at as a sex object, and believes that other women do too.

The 40-year-old actress is aware that some people see her as just a pretty face and a hot body -- but she says that's not necessarily a bad thing.

"I think every woman does want to be objectified," Us Magazine quoted her as telling The Sunday Times.

"There's a little part of you at all times that hopes to be somewhat objectified, and I think it's healthy," she said.

The Bad Teacher star doesn't even mind stripping down to her underwear for photoshoots, as she did for a recent Terry Richardson spread in the November issue of Esquire UK.

"It's empowering," she said.

"I'm not some young girl with the photographer going, 'Will you take your clothes off?' I'm like (mimes stripping), 'How does this look?'

"(The stylists are) like, 'Today we're not going to put anything other than bras and heels on you, and I'm like, 'These heels are not high enough'," she added.

And the stunning single star says that kind of confidence doesn't just come from her world-famous face and figure.

"I'm a woman, I know how to handle myself," she told the paper.

"I know what I feel comfortable doing, and I know my sexuality," she said.

Kate Moss to lift lid on notorious private life in new documentary

Prev     Next


Kate Moss is offering some revealing insights into the life and times of one of fashion's most famous faces, as the supermodel is set to star in a documentary about her day-to-day activities.

A release date is yet to be confirmed but according to Grazia, the 38-year-old's reps have confirmed the supermodel is allowing a film crew to follow her around as she embarks on her global book tour to support the release of her Rizzoli coffee table book, the Daily Mail reported.

Known for her hedonistic lifestyle and high-profile relationships, a documentary based on the star is bound to whet any fashion fan's appetite.

Part of her appeal is that she has never spoken out about her rock and roll life.

As a result of the Vanity Fair interview fans now know the extent of her heartbreak following her break-up with Johnny Depp, and how she found posing nude excruciating as a young model.

"There has always been a public fascination with Kate over the years but up until now she has kept relatively tight-lipped over her notorious showbiz lifestyle," Chris Smith, Yahoo! showbiz reporter said.

"But now that she's settled down and happily married, perhaps she feels it's time to lift the lid on what it's really like to be Britain's most famous supermodel."

"She's a shrewd businesswoman and knows that people are interested to find out more about her -- so it's no real surprise that she's finally decided to cash in on the public's curiosity," he added.

Prev     Next


Playboy Magazine has released a special edition, featuring a stunning collection of Marilyn Monroe's nude photos, to mark the 50th anniversary of the tragic starlet's death.

The magazine selected the rare shots of the iconic beauty from its exclusive archive of 10 million photos captured throughout her career.

"It's really all about the collection and the way its composed," the Daily Mail quoted Jimmy Jellinek, Playboy's editorial director, as saying.

"This is the first time we've shown the totality of our collection, from the beginning to almost days before the end of her life. It showcases the arc of her life," he said.

Apart from The Nude Marilyn, a carefully selected portfolio of photographs, Playboy's special package also features editorials by Roger Ebert and Kim Morgan, recollections from Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner and an excerpt by novelist John Updike.

Playboy had a long relationship with Monroe; the very first issue featured Monroe as the covergirl.

The magazine promises the December cover feature 'highlights the full spectrum of her beauty and power'.

The classic nude photos range from her first days as a pin-up girl to her final pictorials with the world's leading photographers.

Sarah Jessica Parker shrugs off fashion icon tag

Prev     Next


Sarah Jessica Parker, who is best known for playing Carrie Bradshaw, famed for her skyscraper heels in Sex And The City, insists that she can't be fashionable all the time because she's looking after her three kids.

"It's not an identity that I connect to," the Sun quoted Parker as saying.

"I'm grateful if anyone says anything kind and if they say something less kind, I take that as a part of anyone talking about you at all. It's not how I think of myself and think it's probably the healthier approach," she said.

However, the Golden Globe Award winner also asserted that she loves being given the red-carpet treatment.

"I love beautiful things and I'm privileged to borrow a beautiful dress. I feel like fashion has a proper place in my life," she said.

"It's just not a reality. Not when you have three kids and you go to the market and there are hungry people at home. There's just no time to let vanity enter into that," she added.

Jessica Simpson showed off her post-pregnancy body as she joined her sister Ashlee to promote her clothing line in Tampa, Florida on Saturday.

The sister duo were on duty to promote the girls selection from Simpson's self-named clothing line at Dillard's department store, the Daily Mail reported.

After dropping a massive 60 pounds, the 32-year-old singer has showed off her slender curves at a number of events.

During her pregnancy with her first child, Maxwell, she weighed around 200 pounds, the publication added.

But after having her child in May, she signed up to be the face of Weight Watchers and has been combining the low-calorie diet with a strict workout regimen with her personal trainer.

Simpson initially struggled to lose the weight but with a reported four-million-dollar-contract in jeopardy, she revved up her excercise and diet, the paper added.
