French fashion house Balmain drops the R&B singer in its latest campaign.

This and more news from the world of glamour and showbiz!

R&B star Rihanna has been replaced in the upcoming ad campaign for French fashion house Balmain.

The Monster singer was named the face of Balmain, modelling for their 2014 Spring/Summer campaign, back in December, reported Digital Spy.

It appears that Rihanna won't be featured in the next campaign, however, as the new Balmain ads instead feature Britain's Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn.

Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing told Instagram followers that the new campaign would feature "different girls" with "different backgrounds".

Last month, Rihanna was named the Most Desirable Woman at the 2014 Guys Choice Awards.

She also recently made headlines for the custom sheer Adam Selman gown she wore at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards.

Kate Upton says she is sick of fake rumours in tabloids about her life.

The 22-year-old model said that the tabloids are obsessed about her life, especially her love life, "Reading things about myself that aren't true drives me crazy. I've managed to block it out, but my family really hasn't -- so they'll read about me and then call me up saying, 'Are you alright? I saw this happened'.

"My mum will call and say: 'Well, I saw you went to Vegas, when you could have come to the family reunion...' and I'm like, 'mum, I swear, I'm in Europe!' It's insane!," she said.

Upton, who appeared in movie The Three Stooges, claimed that she gets her confidence from her mother.

"My mother always taught me that smiling when you walk into a room is the best beauty secret, so if I'm nervous when I walk in I just smile, and I think everyone warms to you quicker that way."

Singer-fashion designer Victoria Beckham enjoys attending SoulCycle classes with her husband David and their sons.

The 40-year-old former Spice Girls singer, who is the mother of Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and Harper, two, said she was delighted to be a part of the family exercise program, reported Contactmusic.

"They brought in some little mini bikes so Romeo and Cruz could do it too. It was the cutest thing," she said.

Beckham generally works out using celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson. The mother of four claims to be "addicted" to the sessions, she admits they are difficult.

"I had dinner, funnily enough, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Valentino and I said to Gwyneth, "I've seen pictures of you recently and your body is amazing..."

"So I started when I was pregnant and got addicted. It's very challenging."

While Victoria doesn't regret putting her pop star days behind her, she misses dancing.

"I don't miss being on stage - though it was great at the time -- but I do miss dancing. I was a dancer before I was in the Spice Girls."

TV presenter Alexa Chung has teamed up with clothing label Adriano Goldschmied to create a 20-piece denim collection.

The 30-year-old model is teaming up with the American label to create 20 pieces - including denim dresses, T-Shirts and jeans - for their new and upcoming collection, Alexa Chung for AG, reported Contactmusic.

"The collection is inherently the missing pieces of my dream denim wardrobe, which, as ever, is predominantly inspired by a late Sixties, early Seventies aesthetic," she said.

The British star, who also worked with US retailer Madewell in 2011, paid a visit to the Goldschmied factory in California recently and spent the duration of her trip searching through shops in the area as part of her research for the collection.

"I found the trip incredibly inspiring and an opportunity to learn about denim and make things I had been dreaming about finding," she added.

Actress Kerry Washington has teamed up with costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited to launch a new clothing line inspired by the Shonda Rhimes series Scandal.

The fans of the ABC series will be able to purchase the fashion of Olivia Pope (played by Washington) in this fall, reported Ace Showbiz.

"People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show," she said.

The collection will feature Olivia's signature outfits, including wide-leg trousers, chic blouses and signature outerwear.

Washington, 38, said she was involved with Lyn and The Limited's head of design Elliot Staples right from the scratch.

"It's been really fun to have a voice at every stage of the production from picking buttons, choosing fabrics and weighing in on hair and makeup people," she added.

The actress, who gave birth to her first daughter Isabella in April, said that the collection would be original and not inspired by any other designer.

"We weren't inspired by any designers in particular because they are all original pieces that are authentic to the character and the world of the show," she added.

Reality TV stars Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian have revealed that the idea behind their brand is to help women.

The sisters said their clothing stores and their kids' clothing line have always been business savvy, reported the New York Post.

"I think our brand is all about empowering other women to be successful," Kim said.

The reality TV stars said they re-evaluated their brand in 2013 and decided to only pursue projects which they are extremely passionate about.

And even though their businesses are now booming, things were not always so great for the sisters.

According to them, they originally were not taken seriously as entrepreneurs.

"It is a struggle. We started off opening up our Dash clothing store over a decade ago, and that's where we really started off in fashion.

"We've always been really hard-working girls, and we were fortunate enough to have a TV show," Kim added.
