Miranda Kerr Has a Special Easter Treat For You!

 

Easter weekend is upon us, but before you head out for the festivities, Miranda Kerr has a special treat for you!

This year, rather than dressing in head-to-toe pastels and decorating eggs like the rest of us, the Australian supermodel has teamed up with LOVE magazine for a NSFW holiday-themed video that is likely a whole lot better than anything you’ll find in your Easter basket this Sunday.

Coming by way of Love’s editor in chief Katie Grand and photographer Sean Thomas, the video sees Miranda doing all sorts of classic Easter-y things, like eating candy and making a basket.  The twist of course, is that she’s wearing pink satin bunny ears and skimpy lingerie while doing it.  The sultry video first appeared as a 16-second teaser clip on Miranda’s Instagram page on Thursday, but is expected to be published on lovemagazine.co.uk later today.  We can only imagine what she and LOVE magazine have in store, but it’s bound to be as sweet as any helping on Easter Peeps this weekend!

In the meantime, we’re getting into the holiday spirit with bunny-themed editorials starring some of our other favorite top models.  From a White Rabbit-inspired Kate Moss, to Natalia Vodianova’s numerous takes on those iconic ears, scroll through the slideshow below for the full look at fashion’s favorite bunny impersonators!

Look of the Week: Karolina Kurkova’s Color-Blocking Perfection

The temperatures are rising, the sun is shining and best of all it’s time to announce our Look of the Week winner!

With the annual Tribeca Film Festival taking over New York City this week, it should come as no surprise that this week’s winner was selected from the festival’s lineup of dazzling red carpet beauties.  Speccifically, we’re referring to supermodel Karolina Kurkova, who stole the show at the ‘For the Love of Cinema’ dinner hosted by IWC Schaffhausen at Urban Zen in New York City on Thursday night. The Czech-born supermodel stunned in a beautiful Roksanda Ilincic dress featuring contrasting orange, black and white panels.  The bold shades popped against the model’s toned and tanned skin, and paired well her artsy Sophia Webster print sandals and black IWC timepiece.  Meanwhile, we could hardly take our eyes off of her perfect hot pink pout— a shade we fully intend to test out this Easter weekend!

For more of Karolina’s bold street style, check out her Facebook and Twitter feeds, which she routinely updates with her personal style musing, tips, photos and more!

Happy Birthday Rosie! The Supermodel Celebrates Her 27th With Candice Swanepoel and Heather Marks!

Nothing says ‘it’s my birthday!’ like slipping on a funky party hat (or two), gathering your best girlfriends, and partying into the early morning hours.  So we can’t be surprised to learn that’s exactly how Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rang in her birthday on Thursday night.

Joined by a small circle of her nearest and dearest friends, including Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel, Heather Marks and Derek Blasberg, Rosie feted her 27th in style at an exclusive party in New York City. Sporting a daring black  mini dress, a pink and silver tiara and a pair of black lace cat ears, the birthday girl took to Instagram to share several candid pics from inside the party— and what a raucous party it was!  In one photo in particular, Rosie, Candice and Heather can be seen wearing their party hats over their boobs like Madonna’s famous cone bra and dancing on a table.  Eat your heart out boys!

Of course, last night’s fete was merely the latest stop in what’s been a string of recent A-list parties for the model.  Things officially kicked off last weekend when the British beauty was one of several top models to make the annual trek out to Indio, California for the star-studded Coachella Music Festival, where she hosted the Soho Desert House and Bacardi event before taking in the weekend’s top shows.

As Rosie continues to fete her 27th birthday today, we’re celebrating with a look back at some of our favorite street-style looks from her over the years.  Scroll through the slideshow below for some much-needed pre-Easter weekend style inspiration, and don’t forget to show Rosie some love today on Twitter and Instagram!

Don’t Worry, Kate Upton Actually Loves Her Body Just the Way It Is

Everyone can breathe easy, as it turns out, Kate Upton loves her body just the way it is!

After an interview with the British tabloid The Sun reportedly quoted The Other Woman star as saying she wished she had a smaller chest, and consequentially sent the blogosphere into a media frenzy, Kate took to Twitter to denounce the claims on Wednesday, assuring us all that she does in fact love her body.

Taking aim at the tabloid, the supermodel admit the quotes about her figure were completely untrue and used to “drum up controversy where there is none.”  Still, she admits that like any other woman, she too has had her moments of insecurity, but is nevertheless proud of her body— as she should be!

In addition to working hard to maintain those perfectly toned curves, Kate has also had to fight long and hard to overcome her critics.  Speaking to Vogue magazine last year, the Miami-native revealed the tough time she had when she first started off.  “You sit there and you’re like ‘Is something wrong with me?’ ”The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.”

So make no mistake about it, Kate Upton is here to stay— curves and all!
