Beyonce's new bikini ad brews modesty war

Residents of a New York neighbourhood have taken to covering up Beyonce's bikini ads for clothing store H&M.

According to New York blog Bowerie Boogie, a bus stop billboard of the 31-year-old singer in a barely-there bikini was covered up, Stuff.co.nz reported.

One person said that everyday someone tapes a cover over the ad and everyday people rip it down.

Rita Ora has signed a 500,000-pound contract to be the new face of Madonna's clothing brand, Material Girl.

The 22-year-old pop star has already shot campaign photos for the label, which is run by the 54-year-old singer and her daughter Lourdes, the Sun reported.

A source told the publication that the endorsement from the veteran star could help Ora crack the US, where she still needs a big break.

The source said that Lourdes and Ora met at the Met Ball in New York last week and Madonna admired the Hot Right Now singer's attitude, and so thought of the idea.

"Rita jumped at the chance because she's such a fan of the Queen Of Pop," the source said.

The brand, sold in Macy's stores in the US, is 1980s inspired and is aimed at teenagers.

Kate Moss has revealed that she fights the signs of ageing by ducking her face in icy water.

The 39-year-old actress told the Sun that she fills a sink with ice and cucumber.

"It tightens everything, making you look and feel awake. It's a bit Joan Crawford, but it works," she said.

Moss also hailed former model Jerry Hall, 56, as one of her idols.

Gwyneth Paltrow was recently seen wearing a high-tech fitness gadget, which tracks how long a person has been sitting, how many steps they have taken and whether they are getting enough quality sleep.

The 40-year-old actress had previously touted Jawbone's UP wristband on her lifestyle blog GOOP, describing the device as a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle, the New York Daily News reported.

The tiny bands starts vibrating if the user has stayed still for too long, it times their workouts, counts calories and even determines how physical activity affects their mood, by using data entered by users into a smartphone app.
