Boys need all the help they can get when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts. Obviously Victoria’s Secret understands, which is why they’ve dispatched two of their Angels, Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes, for a special appearance at the new Lexington Avenue store in New York. This Wednesday, February 11 from 6-8 PM, boyfriends will have the chance to finally get the holiday right, with in-store shopping tips from the Angels. And with a purchase of $60 or more, they’ll even get an autograph from the girls. Ladies, send this subtle hint along to your boyfriends.
Oh Marie Claire, you know how to draw us in. Your March 2009 cover has the headline, “Angela Lindvall‘s Eco Chic” so of course we bypassed Drew Barrymore’s new tongue ring in anticipation of all things Angela. The spread, titled “The Keepsake,” shows the eco-obsessed model in a variety of classic jackets paired with green-friendly tanks, jeans and shoes. Totally smitten, but not so distracted by Angela and her gorgeous clothes that we missed their obvious reference. So we wonder, is the Beatles’ album an obsession of photographer Ben Watts or Angela?

The “Twilight” obsession just won’t go away, and now it’s moved into the fashion world, thanks to Robert Pattinson’s undeniable good looks. Ali Michael told Page Six magazine that she’s been in touch with Amy Astley, Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue to introduce her to the brooding actor who plays Edward Cullen. Even though Ali’s reportedly skipping Fashion Week, perhaps the pair will make a cameo appearance at an after-party? We can only hope…
It’s all about the lingerie news recently, in the upcoming days before the new Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and Valentine’s Day. First Natalia Vodianova designed her own line, and now Poppy Delevigne has been named the face of Myla’s Spring 2009 campaign, replacing Lydia Hearst. Her 1970s-inspired campaign was shot by Mario Sorrenti’s sister, Vanina, and includes 16 different shots, which have already popped up in Myla’s London stores.
Marisa Miller and Karolina Kurkova brought a little more beauty to Sunday night’s red carpets. In between the surprising combinations of musical acts (Stevie Wonder and the Jonas Brothers?) and the landslide of awards for “Slumdog Millionaire,” these models added their stunning style to the Grammys and the BAFTAs. Karolina stood out among a sea of black, choosing a deep red Escada gown, styled with elegant 1950s-inspired waves framing her face. Meanwhile, Marisa went for the classic black-and-white look, pairing nude pumps with a simple white mini-dress and a black belt.
Who doesn’t need a few new ideas for places to eat in New York? Heather Marks shared her pre-Fashion Week food diary with New York magazine‘s Grub Street, and though her week was spent traveling between Mexico and the Big Apple for photo shoots, there is still plenty to learn from the supermodel’s dietary habits. Like the fact that she’s almond and fish obsessed, drinking almond butter protein blends and enjoying sea bass in Cabo. Here, her local haunts include Angelica Kitchen, Whole Foods, Miro Café, 7A, Thai Me Up, and interestingly enough, afternoons at the Russian Turkish Baths. You know where you can find us now.
