Breaking News: The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is Moving to London!

BIG news is making its way across the pond this morning!

In a surprise announcement made at the brand’s Bond Street store earlier today, Victoria’s Secret revealed that for the first time ever, the highly anticipated 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be held in none other than good ‘ol London town!  Angels Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel joined the company’s chief marketing officer Ed Razek to announce the move, as well as the venue and date: Earls Court on December 2.

Though the annual supermodel extravaganza has previously been moved from New York to Los Angeles and Miami on occasion, this marks only the second time the show has been staged outside of the country following 2000′s Cannes Cinema Against AIDS charity show held during the Cannes Film Festival.  According to Razek, the brand had hoped to bring it to London since 1998, but he said: “”Candidly, we weren’t well known enough here until we opened the stores. We have six stores in the UK now.”

“The Victoria’s Secret Show is the biggest fashion show in the world, for sure,” Adriana added, “so it will be amazing to bring the show to London. I love it here. Especially the shopping!”

Kate Moss’ Topshop Collection Makes It’s Red Carpet Debut

Though it may seem hard to believe, Coachella wasn’t the only star-studded event drawing in the model crowd this weekend.  On Sunday, Kate Moss made a surprise appearance at The Laurence Olivier Awards in London, where she not  only presented a special lifetime achievement award to close friend and theater impresario Michael White, but she also debuted her new Topshop collection on the red carpet for the first time!

As always, the supermodel made sure she was among the best-dressed in the room, shunning a formal gown in favor of a matching silk paisley suit from her yet-to-be-released spring/summer ’14 collection.  In keeping with her signature brand of boho-chic, Kate paired the printed ensemble with a simple black camisole top, strappy sandals, and dangling emerald earrings.

The Models’ Hair Accessories Steal the Spotlight at Coachella

It’s not easy staying gorgeous at a festival— especially one taking place under the blaring California sun— but over the weekend the models managed to do just that with the help of a few key hair accessories.  Specially, we’re talking flower crowns and head scarfs.  Though hardly new to the festival scene, these mane additions were spotted on the heads of a growing number of top models at the first installment of Coachella thisweekend, providing us with an ample amount of summer beauty inspiration!

While just about every major celebrity enjoyed a flower crown moment or two, there was no topping Barbara Palvin and Poppy Delevingne,’s fresh floral wreaths.  Opting for a classic yellow daisy headpiece, Barbara was the quintessential flower child, while Poppy stood out in a bold, fuchsia version that matched perfectly with her punchy pink pout.

In terms of head scarves, no one did it better than Chanel Iman, who took boho beauty to the extreme by pairing a graphic print scarf worn around her head with brightly colored dip-dyed ends. Though we’re not sure how well this look would go over outside the festival grounds, it looked effortlessly cool in the Indio desert.  Still, if you’re looking for something a little less drastic, Alessandra Ambrosio‘s adorable bandana-tied side ponytail is sure to please at Bonaroo, Lollapalooza, or wherever your festival travels may take you this summer.

A Top Model-Palooza at Coachella’s Kick-Off Weekend!

If you were anywhere near Instagram over the weekend, you will know that all eyes (and ears) where on the Coachella Music Festival going on in Palm Springs, California.   Just as we expected, the first weekend of Cali’s premiere music festival was nothing short of spectacular, as supermodels and fashion “it-girls” alike hit the desert for three days of headlining performances, A-list parties and street style sightings galore.  While it’s no surprise that festival regulars Alessandra Ambrosio and Chanel Iman were spotted out on the field in their finest fringe this season, we were more than pleased to see the return of festival favorites Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cara and Poppy Delevingne, and Toni Garrn (with beau Leonardo DiCaprio of course). Meanwhile, Jacquelyn JablonskiHanne Gaby Odiele, Kasia Struss and Alana Zimmer were all spotted rocking face paint at the buzzed-about Alexander Wang and H&M party on Saturday, while Heidy de la Rosa mesmerized the crowd with both her sweet dance moves and her gorgeous Theodora & Callum Aruba scarf turned dress (see the video proof here). Like this year’s all-star set list, the weekend’s top model lineup was hands down its biggest and best yet!  Check out the slideshow below for the full look at all of the music-loving models who attended the first weekend of Coachella 2014!

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit rookie seems to be the name on everyone’s lips today, earning the attention of more than just the usual SI fan club as it’s confirmed that she is now dating 24-year-old British actor Alex Pettyfer (aka the shirtless, cowboy hat-wearing hunk in 2012′s Magic Mike)!
