VICTORIA’S NEW SECRET: Victoria’s Secret has launched its first high-end lingerie collection, called The Victoria’s Secret Designer Collection. The line, which is rendered in shimmery see-through chiffons and trimmed with European lace, ribbons and embroideries, features playful baby dolls, barely there unlined bras, deep-plunge push-up bras, string bikinis, low-cut teddies, garter belts, a kimono and a merry widow corset. The collection has been kept under wraps — even at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November when several key items were featured as part of the regular lineup. The in-house designer collection replaces the decades-long concept of featuring upscale designer brands such as Chantelle Thomas on the main floor of Victoria’s Secret stores. The idea was to attract a more affluent and sophisticated consumer. Ed Razek, president and chief marketing officer of Victoria’s Secret, said, “We took it in-house because we have a design team that has such a passion for lingerie, and they differentiate Victoria’s Secret from any other brand.”
The collection has nearly sold out since it began selling Tuesday at victoriassecret.com and at five units, including the Lexington Avenue and Herald Square megastores, said Razek. Plans are to expand distribution of the summer collection to seven additional units in late June, totaling 13 doors.
Bras retail from $98 to $158; undies and garter belts are $38 to $68; baby dolls and teddies are $158 to $218, and the kimono and merry widow are $120 and $298, respectively.
The CW is investing in another female-driven light-hearted doctor project.
In before "OMG Another Oscar post?!?" But hear me out...
My absolute least favourite thing about the whole Oscar season is when they award ~the actor rather than ~the performance. Essentially Oscars are bs anyway since acting is entirely subjective, but goddamn they don't even try 90% of the time.
So this is my post to rant about how "Make Up" or "Overdue" Oscars suck. ^_^
ABC is making it a pair of Beauty and the Beast reboots this pilot season.
The female-skewing network is moving forward with its reimagining of the classic fairy tale set in a mythical, dangerous world where a beautiful and tough princess discovers an unlikely connection with a mysterious beast.
The singer was due to play at Koko at a gig also featuring The maccabees and Charlie XCX, but has pulled out due to illness.
The Oscar-winning actress - who stars alongside Chris Pine and Tom Hardy in the romantic spy comedy - admits multiple endings were shot for the final scene, meaning she does not know which of the lead actors she ends up with.
She said: "We shot endings where I could end up with Tom, or I could end up with Chris, or I could end up alone. Or I could end up with Chelsea Handler!"
The blonde beauty wears a number of vertiginous pairs of heels in the film, directed by McG, and she was shocked when Chris Pine - best known as Captain Kirk in 'Star Trek' - asked her to keep them on during a sex scene.
She told Total Film magazine: "Tom and Chris were both obsessed with my shoes. Both of them! Obsessed with me wearing high-heeled sexy shoes. I was actually doing a sex scene with Chris and he said, 'Can you keep your shoes on?' I was like, OK,'."
lbr, it ends with Pine/Hardy having angry sex that results in accidental bumping that pushes her over a cliff (semi-kidding, I like Reese). I'm bored and don't really care about the movie, hot shoes post?
"American Idol winner Kris Allen has been working on his sophomore album throughout the past year and has finally revealed details about its release.
In a sneak peek of a new video interview with Clevver News, the singer reveals that the first single off the new record will be released in late February, with the album hitting stores in late May or early June."
Chatting on the red carpet of his new film Woman In Black Daniel Radcliffe, 22: "I still have other ambitions. I’d love to play American football.
I’ve got hooked on it! And I’m the right height. I’d love to go and play over there, I’m sure everyone would love me on their team. It would be fun."
Maybe that holds no fears for Dan, but he told us he’s terrified of marrying too soon. He’s been dating production assistant Rosanne Coker, 22, for 18 months and revealed: "God, Christ no, I won’t be getting engaged this year.
"I’m not saying I’m terrified of commitment, but it is much, much too soon. I think we’d be mad to go for it now. It’ll be a while off yet."
Daniel admitted that has another phobia. He confessed: "I’m scared of Yellowstone, which is a super volcano in America.
"It’s set to go in the next 50,000 years and that keeps me up at night."
You’ve been quoted as saying about these two relationships in your life: “In terms of sexual orientation, I don’t really feel I’ve changed … I’ve been with men all my life and I’d never fallen in love with a woman. But when I did, it didn’t seem so strange. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.” I’m a bit confused. Were you a lesbian in a heterosexual relationship? Or are you now a heterosexual in a lesbian relationship? That quote seemed like you were fudging a bit.
It’s so not fudging. It’s so not. I think for gay people who feel 100 percent gay, it doesn’t make any sense. And for straight people who feel 100 percent straight, it doesn’t make any sense. I don’t pull out the “bisexual” word because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals.
But it is the “B” in LGBT.
CN: I know. But we get no respect
You just said “we,” so you must self-identify as one.
I just don’t like to pull out that word. But I do completely feel that when I was in relationships with men, I was in love and in lust with those men. And then I met Christine and I fell in love and lust with her. I am completely the same person and I was not walking around in some kind of fog. I just responded to the people in front of me the way I truly felt…
Look, I understand for political reasons why some people want to kind of squelch this idea that being gay might be a choice, because a lot of the rights we want are posited on the supposition that why are you denying me my rights any more than if I were created a different color? But I don’t feel the need to cede the definition of what a gay person is to the bigots. They don’t get to define who I am.
Poor Gwen! Her husband’s dark past and infidelities have lead her to reach a breaking point in love, according to a new report in Star magazine.
Gwen Stefani, 42, and Gavin Rossdale, 46, have been in and out of couple’s therapy trying to repair their marriage, but a source tells the mag that divorce is “inevitable.” And Gwen’s brother, Eric Stefani, 44, also agrees that divorce is possible, according to the new report.
“He’s just not been honest with her about his past,” another source tells the mag.
Two years into the marriage Gwen was hit with Gavin’s first secret — that he had a daughter, Daisy Lowe, now 22, by his ex-girlfriend song-writer/designer Pearl Lowe. And then began the rumors about Gavin’s affairs. In 2009, 80s cross-dresser Peter Robinson — famously known as Marilyn — revealed he had had a short fling with Gavin, before he married Gwen. And in 2010, Gavin confirmed the affair in an interview with Details magazine claiming it was a one-time experimentation when he was 17-years-old.

The singer, who released her debut single The Loco-Motion in 1987, has recorded a new acoustic version of her 1992 hit Finer Feelings at the Abbey Road studios in London. She will be releasing more new recordings of her songs during the year.
A source said last night: “She’s really excited about revisiting some of her earliest hits. She’s got a lot of younger fans who have never even heard some of her most iconic songs.”
Kylie, 43, who first found fame as Charlene in Neighbours, received an OBE in 2008 in recognition of a career that has seen her sell millions of albums.
She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and had surgery and chemotherapy, before getting the all-clear in 2006.
Beyoncé is many things: The labels singer, actress, designer, sex symbol, entrepreneur, wife and mother have all been used to describe her. Kevin Allred, a professor and doctoral student at Rutgers University, sees her as something even greater with her capacity to effect social change.
