Victoria’s Secret Supermodels Take Over Times Square

Yesterday it looked like the start of the beauty Olympics as the Victoria’s Secret Angels took over Times Square in New York City.

They gathered to promote the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” which takes place tonight in the city.

Heidi Klum’s showed off her post-baby figure just five weeks after giving birth to her 4th child Lou Samuel.

It’s enough to make you want to head down to the gym right now.

They were all wearing the same thing – black skinny jeans, a white tee and a black leather biker jacket embroidered with cute wings.

The only thing that differed was their footwear.

From the left Miranda Kerr wore a simple pair of Christian Louboutin Delic pumps.

Doutzen Kroes wore black YSL suede ankle boots, Behati Prinsloo wore black lace up booties, Marisa Miller was on trend with her thigh-high boots.

Heidi Klum wore grey YSL suede platform heels and Alessandra Ambrosio completed a YSL trio by wearing YSL ‘Easy’ Leather & Suede Ankle Boots.

I wish Selita Ebanks was in the front row, as she was wearing a stand out pair of silver Christian Louboutin thigh-high boots.

Oi Fashion Rocks Brazil

Fashion Rocks was held in Brazil for the first time this year.

The event featured four international fashion designers, including Marc Jacobs, Versace, Givenchy, and Calvin Klein with live performances from Mariah Carey, Estelle, P.Diddy, Grace Jones and Ciara.

The line-up also featured four national fashion designers – Lenny, Andre Lima, Alexandre Herchcovith and Lino Vilaventura paired with four performers including Lulu Santos, Daniela Mercury, Wanessa and Ja Rule.

Donatella Versace wore 2 gowns from her recent Spring 2010 collection.

The first was a lilac strapless gown which she had modified by removing the white details on the bodice, and lowering the central split.

This colour is fabulous on her.

The second was an asymmetrical angelic white gown with silver triangle shaped embellishments.

Again the split was lowered and the cut-out detail on the side of the gown on the runway, doesn’t appear on Donatella’s gown.

This was my favourite gown of the two.

Fernanda Lima hosted the show looking amazing wearing the same red Versace Fall 2009 gown Blake Lively wore to the Emmy’s.

She looked equally, if not more spectacular in this jaw-dropping gown.

Isabeli Fontana wowed wearing a canary yellow Atelier Versace Fall 2007 halter gown.

I thought the only model who could provide this kind of jaw-dropping moment was Gisele Bundchen.

She’s back.

After months of quite boring black ensembles, Estelle was back to her colourful best wearing a very interesting futuristic Manish Arora Fall 2009 dress of yellow, orange, red maroon and black.

The textured dress was paired with a grey Fendi clutch and Christian Louboutin Calypso heels as worn by Blake Lively last week.

Fernanda Motta and Alessandra Ambrosio arrived at this event together.

Fernanda wore a black satin Versace Fall 2009 wrap dress, which is the same dress we saw on Janet Jackson recently, whilst Alessandra showed off her enviable figure in a taupe halter neck gown embellished with precious stones.

Ciara confirmed via her twitter page that she is going to be Riccardo Tisci new muse for Givenchy, so it was no surprised to see her decked out in a Givenchy Spring 2009 ensemble.

Her embellished cold-shoulder top was paired with a leather pocketed mini skirt to show-off those toned legs.

2009 Los Premios MTV Latin America Awards

Nelly Furtado was front row at Elie Saab’s recent Spring 2010 presentation in Paris.

She was obviously shopping for this event as she walked the red carpet wearing a beige Elie Saab Spring 2010 studded panel dress.

I loved the dress on the runway, but I would’ve loved Nelly’s look had she worn the runway leather strappy heels.

Alessandra Ambrosio this Balmain Fall 2008 dress was amazing the first time we saw it on Selita Ebanks.

We’ve since seen it on LaToya Luckett and Cheryl Cole.

I for one am so over this dress, that I can’t even appreciate how spectacular you look in it.

Sorry but there are a million and one other mini dresses you could have chosen to wow us in.

Ashley Tisdale seems to have changed direction from the rock chick look she was channeling for a while, back to wearing cute dresses again.

On this red carpet she wore a black twill and tulle Camilla & Marc Lotus dress.

She added a patent belt to add more texture to her cute mini dress, and her leopard print Louboutin heels hinted at her wild side.

Audrina Patridge showed off her tattooed back wearing a black backless mini Oday Shakar sparkling dress which she paired with Lanvin thigh-high boots.

Call me crazy, but I like this look.

Not many could get away with this look.

Many of you say that Taylor Swift always wears embellished dresses on the red carpet, and I would say the same for Miranda Cosgrove.

These shapeless embellished dresses she loves to wear on the red carpet, are all started to feel a bit samey.

Here she wears a Elise Overland dress, paired with Guiseppe Zanotti heels.

Paulina Rubio wore an Ina Soltani LBD accented with rosettes.

The dress is cute, but the black and silver ankle boots just ruin the look for me.

Kelly Rowland’s dress looks like a Bebe knock-off dress.

The only redeeming quality it has is making her legs look long and lean.

Kelly Osbourne was the surprise on this red carpet.

The UK TV star wore a plum mini D&G dress with voluminous skirt and shoulders, paired with a stunning glass Swarovski necklace and a sparkling Swarovski purple crystal clutch.

For some reason Selena Gomez didn’t walk the red carpet, but she was spotted backstage wearing a Paule Ka nude strapless dress with a sheer nude floor-length overlay.

13th Annual Webby Awards

Last night was the ‘Webby Awards’, but with all the long tanned legs on display, it was more like the ‘Leggy Awards’.

Lake Bell arrived wearing a navy Rag & Bone one shoulder dress, with two black panels on the front and back of the dress.

I don’t think this is an easy dress to pull off, but Lake does. She looks sexy, and sassy, without looking trashy at all.

Roger Vivier scoubidou woven patent sandals, and a black clutch complete the look.

Molly Sims loves showing off her golden tan.

On this occasion she glows in a hot pink, patterned sequined mini sleeveless dress, paired with tan Louboutin peep-toes.

Mother of one, Alessandra Ambrosio, opts for the head-to-toe Balmain runway look, including the Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals.

This for me is a very predictable look for a Victoria’s Secret Angel…

…much like Doutzen Kroes’ Hervé Léger banded ombré dress.

Stylist Rachel Zoe opted out of wearing a mini, in favour of this cold-shoulder ivory gown, with gold embellishments.

I love her lighter locks.

Update: I sent a twitter message to Rachel asking who her dress was by, and I was pleasantly surprised to get a reply. She was wearing vintage Halston.
