Why Katie Price likes going naked and more fashion news!



Welcome to the weekly fashion round-up, where we bring you the latest on supermodels, style, designers and everything in-between!

Which pregnant popstar-turned-fashion mogul has posed in the buff? Which inspiring amputee model has become the face of a giant brand?

Here's the lowdown on the latest fashion news!

I love being naked, says Katie Price

During the launch of a new swimwear range, Katie Price revealed that she prefers wearing nothing when she's on a holiday.

It's no surprise that the 33-year-old former glamour model who first became famous for her toned bod, likes to show it off as much as she can.

"I don't go to naturist beaches or anything," the Mirror quoted her as saying.

"I just like renting villas over the water and places where I can walk around with no clothes on and sunbathe completely naked all day. Don't you wonder why I never have any tan lines?" she said.

Wearing one of her own designs -- a onesie from the Katie's Boutique section of Store Twenty One -- and showing off a new garter tattoo on her thigh, the TV personality said she was "very hands on" with designing the collection.

She also revealed that she would wear a bikini on the beach, but only if she "had to choose and couldn't be naked...I would swim in the sea naked, though!"

Jessica Simpson poses nude with baby bump

Prev     Next


Pregnant Jessica Simpson has posed nude for the new issue of Elle Magazine, which is pretty much similar to Demi Moore's revolutionary Vanity Fair cover 21 years ago.

In the accompanying interview, Simpson, 31, also revealed that she is having a girl and not to expect one of those quirky celebrity baby names like 'Maple' or 'Apple'!

"It's nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they'll know...why," Fox News quoted her a ssaying.

From the beginning of her seemingly endless pregnancy, Simpson has been taking good care of herself.

Now, her biggest fear is that her daughter will turn out to be a jock.

"Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!" she said in her Dallas accent.

"We're gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won't even be able to take her shopping," she added.

Kimberley Walsh says she is over her 'bum obsession'

Prev     Next


Kimberley Walsh admits she used to be concerned that her bottom was too large, but she has now come to accept her figure.

The 30-year -old beauty is best known as one-fifth of Girls Aloud.

"One a day-to-day basis, I feel good in my clothes. No one is perfect, and you shouldn't expect to be. If you worry too much about how you look, that's unhealthy", Contactmusic quoted her telling You Magazine.

"When I was younger I was obsessed about my big bum, but now I've accepted it's part of who I am. I inherited a naturally small waist from my mother, which is a real blessing," she added.

Despite her former concern, Walsh says she does not diet and instead does lots of exercise to keep her physique trim.

"I have dieted in the past, but now all the exercise I do keeps me in shape and I don't worry about monitoring calories."

"I think dieting is very unhealthy, but if I didn't exercise I would definitely put on lots of weight," she added.

Angelina Jolie 'still upset' over disastrous Oscar dress humiliation

Prev     Next


Angelina Jolie is reportedly struggling to get over the humiliation caused by her dress that gave her a disastrous look at the Oscars.

According to a source, the Salt star is said to be "horrified" that her stylist chose a dress that "swallowed her up" and forced her to stick out her right leg so she didn't look like she was wearing a "bin bag".

Jolie attracted worldwide ridicule after her appearance at the 84th Academy Awards in February. Her right leg took on a life of its own and it didn't take long for spoof images to sweep the Internet.

The actress is reportedly considering sacking her stylist Jen Rade for choosing the disastrous Versace gown.

"Angelina is horrified at the reaction her Oscars dress received. She pays her stylist Jen a lot of money to pick things that will make her look drop-dead gorgeous, but she felt the dress swallowed her up and she had to stick out her leg, or it looked like she was wearing a bin bag," the Herald Sun quoted a source as telling Closer.

"Now she's being laughed at when she's worked so hard on her look. She feels like a joke and is worried her reputation may have taken a hit," the source said.

Jolie was reportedly so upset about the instant mocking that she avoided the Oscars after-parties.

"Ange briefly went to George Clooney's post Academy Awards dinner but left early on as she was still upset."

"She bitterly regrets wearing the dress and is just hoping the next time she's on the red carpet, she makes headlines for the right reasons," the source added.

The "Jolie Leg" meme became an Internet sensation.

The actress is also terrified that she has lost her trademark cool, the British edition of Grazia Magazine revealed.

"Angelina can't believe that she is now the butt of everyone's jokes -- and on such a global scale," an insider told Grazia.

"She feels completely humiliated. She simply can't believe that her appearance backfired so spectacularly. Angelina never looks uncool -- ever," the source added.

Jennifer Love Hewitt, who has never been shy about showing off her 36-C cup size, has revealed that her boobs have always "served" her well.

The 33-year-old actress will be appearing front and centre on the cover of Maxim's April issue.

"It's horrible to say, but I like my boobs," Us Magazine quoted her as saying.

"They've always served me well. They're good," she said.

To get in shape for her role as a prostitute on Lifetime's The Client List, Hewitt began taking pole-dancing lessons.

"It's a great way to stay in touch with your sexuality."

"I also love to cook, so I can have a cake in the oven while I do a pole dance," she added.

Mila Kunis says her body shape changed after 'Black Swan'

Prev     Next


Mila Kunis has revealed that since the time she lost weight for her role in Black Swan, her body "has never been the same again."

"My shape is different. When I got down to 95 pounds, I was muscles, like a little brick house, but skin and bones. When I gained it back, it went to completely different areas," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling the US edition of Harper's Bazaar.

"I'd be happy if my a got bigger. All the weight that left my chest went to my side, hip, my stomach," she said.

However, the actress admits that now she would be wary if asked to take on a role that required her to transform her body again.

"I'm not going to say I'd look forward to it, but if an offer came along, I'd do it," she added.

Rihanna reveals secret to her glowing skin

Prev     Next


Rihanna has disclosed that she uses the Per-fekt skincare range to get her radiant looks.

The Per-fekt skin perfection gel, worth 25 pounds, is already popular with a number of Hollywood stars including Reese Witherspoon, Goldie Hawn and Jennifer Hudson.

According to makeup artist Mylah Morales, the product acts as an alternative to traditional powder blush. It helps to achieve a bronzed and youthful look.

"Skin Perfection Gel preps skin for makeup application and leaves it radiant and refreshed with a hint of colour," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Female First.

The manufacturers claim that the ingredient Niacin (Vitamin B3) helps to increase circulation, while antioxidants caffeine, Vitamins A and E protect from premature skin aging.

Per-fekt was founded by US entrepreneur Richard Anderson, who previously worked with leading beauty brands including Yves Saint Laurent and Bobbi Brown.

"Today's modern, on-the-go woman doesn't have the time to apply a concealer, then colour corrector, then primer, then foundation and then powder...I created my products with her mind," he said.

The product, which should be applied to the cheekbones, forehead and the bridge of the nose, is available in two different shades and helps to boost natural skin colour.

Victoria Beckham vows never to wear tracksuits

Prev     Next


Victoria Beckham has said that that she will never be seen wearing tracksuits.

Despite being a new mum to seven-month-old daughter Harper, the Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer refuses to let her standards slip by donning comfortable casuals to go about her daily business.

"You'll never see me on the street in a tracksuit. I just love fashion too much to wear a tracksuit! The same goes for UGG boots. I only wear them at home."

"I'm addicted to Prada, cardigans and Hermes bags; I'd love to see the world through the eyes of Miuccia Prada. The woman is a genius and her vision is of ultra-intelligent fashion. Each season, she creates something new, she knows how to surprise," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Madame Figaro Magazine.

The wife of LA Galaxy star David Beckham also revealed that she loves nothing more than indulging in a bit of online shopping once her four children are in bed.

"I'm a big fan of When the kids are asleep, I can travel on this site for several hours and I like the idea of quietly shopping at home for clothes and returning them if it don't work. This is absolute freedom," she added.

Kylie Minogue 'loves changing her looks'

Prev     Next


Kylie Minogue has revealed that she loves to change her hair colour, but at the same time admits to struggling to adjust the rest of her appearance to suit the different hues.

The 43-year-old singer had recently dyed her hair to a darker hue for a movie role, and although she enjoyed having brown locks she is in the process of going back to blonde as she struggles to do her makeup well.

"I think most people think of me as a blonde but I recently had a role in a French film and the director wanted to make my hair darker," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Marie Claire Magazine.

"It's quite fun to change your look for something like that, but I will gradually go back to a sun-kissed blonde. I've found it really difficult to do my makeup with darker hair. I seem to look better with nothing," she said.

However, one thing that the pop star cannot change is her height, and she admits she has to wear heels to ensure she is seen.

"With my height I always feel confident if something is below the knee and I'm wearing heels. I wear flats sometimes but not when I'm working, you'd never see me (in them)," she added.

Amputee model Aimee Mullins becomes international face of L'Oreal

Bilateral amputee Aimee Mullins was introduced by L'Oreal as one of its latest "I'm worth it" campaign faces at the Melbourne Fashion Festival.

The 35-year-old model, who had both her legs amputated when she was a year old, joined the Australian ambassador Megan Gale at the VIP luncheon that kicked off the Fashion Festival.

"Remember, I'm hauling around an 80 pound bag of legs everywhere I go," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.

At the event, Mullins concealed her legs in a sleek black Alexander McQueen slack suit. She was a close friend and muse for the British designer, who stunned the fashion world two years ago by taking his own life.

"I miss him. He was beautiful, romantic, a soft, gooey pudding," she said.

Mullins walked for the maverick McQueen in 1999 and is said to have inspired some of his work.

She described an extraordinary life, barely troubled by the amputation of both legs at the age of one because of a condition called hemimelia, or missing fibula bones.

"My parents let me experience the world as it is. At eight, I had prosthetic legs so good at being waterproof, they were buoyant. I'd go off the high dive at the community pool and come straight up, legs first!" she said.

L'Oreal closed the unusual lunch with a "taster" of fashions by seven top designers -- White Suede, Morrison, Aurelio Costarella, Megan Park, Gorman, Magdalena Velevska and Ginger and Smart.

They represent brands now preparing for the festival's highlight Paris Runway show series beginning shortly. The series' huge Peninsula venue on Central Pier, Docklands, is an exotic setting for almost 80 winter collections, including the silky, glamorous gowns of designer Gwendolynne Burkin.
