What Victoria Secret Angels Are Walking the Runway?

We all look forward to the gorgeous scantily clad Angels who know they’re the hottest commodity – because they are – but you won’t be seeing a few regulars, seeing that the stork is delivering mini-angels in the next several months. But, it’s not such a horrible thing to see new faces – and i know you will agree.

Although Heidi Klum’s post-pregnancy silhouette is less than Victoria’s Secret ready, the Aphrodite-esque mother of four is sidelined from walking but will be hosting the show. Adriana Lima continues to sport her bump and Karolina Kurkova has recently given birth to a boy.

According to Modelinia,

Erin Heatherton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson, Chanel Iman, Liu Wen, Izabel Goulart, Isabeli Fontana, Shannan Click, Flavia de Oliveira, Lyndsey Scott, Aminata Niaria, Caroline Trentini, Caroline Winberg, and Lily Aldridge are all confirmed to walk in the show this year! It’s an especially exciting moment for Liu, as she’s the first Asian model to take part in the Victoria’s Secret show, and just as thrilling for Chanel, since she’ll be walking for the first time as well!

Alessandra Ambrosio and Selita Ebanks will be walking as well.

Tune in on December 1, 10/9C on CBS. We can’t wait!

Given that it’s been 15 years since I could merit loitering around the neighborhood scalping candy from neighbors, Heidi Klum’s Annual Halloween Bash is the Halloween venue of every adult’s Halloween inspired dreams. Most of us would even feign Perez Hilton to get into this exclusive celebrity studded venue. For us non-celebs, we can peruse the following photographs and critique Rachel Zoe’s non-Halloween-esque dress under our breaths. Enjoy!

Out September Issue Party: Shame on You Lady Gaga


I never was a Lady Gaga fan despite my coverage on the omnipresent diva celebrity. She was everywhere during Fashion Week, at after-party, after after-party. I don’t know what my editors would say if they knew I divulged how uncooperative she was in getting interviewed for the September issue, but I’ve said it and now it’s too late. Only VIP and staff were permitted access to the exclusive venue, leaving everyone else waiting in line at the door for over an hour, waiting to see the in vogue icon herself, Lady Gaga. According to Mo’s friend who is buddy buddy with the owner, even the owner of The Box was absent. So surprise, surprise, Gaga decides show up to the overbooked, The Box, one hour after the end of the party, flanked by (of all people) Perez Hilton — I think the gay community was just slapped in the face with a hypocrite’s Chanel handbag. She was decked out from head to toe in white, her head cloaked by what I’ll liken to a fishnet over over sized sunglasses. Despite Aaron Hicklin’s desperation to have Gaga pose for a candid, Gaga refused — although, Noah,‘s editorial assistant, did manage to snag a few unsuspecting pictures for Out‘s Pop.nography blog. I’m re-posting a few pictures from Noah’s post (Noah, I hope you don’t mind).

Fashion’s Night Out T’s: GO GO!

fashion night out

Fashion’s Night Out T-shirts are on sale for 30 dollars! Snag them while they last. I suggest but knowing Guilt Group, the shirts wont last for too long (they’re sold out on ‘large’). Darn.

Event: Sode Collections @ Metropolitan Hotel

I’ll be away for the day as I’ve been invited to peruse Southern designer’s collections at the Metroplitan Hotel in NYC. Rumor has it that a certain Gossip Girl is going to be stopping by. I’ll take pictures and post them up for viewing later later tonight (hopefully). Oh, and it looks like my editor wants me to freelance for a little $$. I still haven’t heard back from Esquire (it’s been a week) and I’ve sent a follow up email not too long ago. I don’t have a good feeling about this, but oh well. I can always go back to school. It’s a good idea to keep in contact with your editors and do a good job for obvious reasons, but I’ll get into that later. I will try to have content from today’s event ASAP, and of course I’ll try to snap a few celebrity candids.
