CONFIRMED: The First-Ever Victoria’s Secret’s Swimwear Show is Coming!

After weeks of speculation, Victoria’s Secret has confirmed the premiere of its first-ever swim show and to our surprise, it’s happening a lot sooner than previously expected!

According to the brand’s press release this morning, the lingerie giant is taking its first-ever Victoria’s Secret Swim Special (aka “the sexiest swim show of the year”) to the CBS Television Network, where it will air in an hour-long television event on Thursday, February 26.  Though not quite the large-scale fashion show that was previously rumored, the new special will follow supermodels Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Alessandra Ambrosio, Elsa Hosk, Martha Hunt, Jasmine Tookes, Stella Maxwell, Joan Smalls and Jac Jagaciak to Puerto Rico and offer an exclusive look at the making of the swimwear shoot.  Along with gaining exclusive access to the models as “they tackle jungle treks, underwater shoots and overcome personal fears,” viewers will also get the opportunity to hear from the Angels personal life stories and what drives them.

Of course, we all know it’s not a true Victoria’s Secret special without some headlining performs and for it’s latest acts Victoria’s Secret is keeping things close to home with performance by Maroon 5 and Columbian superstar Juanes.  We can just imagine it now: Adam Levine serenading Behati on a tropical island surrounded by a gaggle of the world’s most beautiful women all dressed in sexy swimsuits.  If that’s not worth tuning into, what is?

So set your DVRs now! The first-ever Victoria’s Secret Swim Special is coming at you on Thursday, February 26 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/PT) on CBS!

It looks like we have another live-action Disney film to look forward to! On Monday, Emma Watson confirmed that she will play Belle in the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, directed by Bill Condon.  “It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There,’” gushed Watson. ~ InStyle

We’ve got to hand it to T-Mobile’s ad team.  This is pretty great.  The phone carrier debuted it’s Super Bowl commercial starring Kim Kardashian on Tuesday, in which the selfie-obsessed “famous person” stages an infomercial for the millions who deal with used data being taken back by their wireless companies.  Or as Kim explains it: “Data you paid for that could be used to see my makeup, my backhand, my outfits, my vacations… and my outfits.” ~ YouTube

Could Givenchy be set to make a return to couture? That’s the well-received rumor circulating today after the label’s creative director of more than a decade, Riccardo Tisci, told New York Times style reporter John Koblin that “Givenchy would do couture again,” following a now 5-year hiatus. ~ Vogue

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Heat Up the February Issue of GQ Magazine

Well, here’s one way to kick off your Valentine’s Day festivities.

Chrissy Teigen and husband John Legend have teamed up for the ultimate PDA-filled photo shoot for GQ magazine’s February issue — which hits newsstands tomorrow — in which the attractive couple gives fans a sneak peek into their sexy love life. In the couple’s steamiest shoot yet, the 29-year-old model and soon-to-be cook book author flaunts her killer body in a plunging LBD while lying on a dinner table as her hubby grabs her waist and gazes adoringly at her visage. In another, Chrissy lays sprawled on the couple’s bed alongside her two dogs in nothing but a bra, underwear and a pair of heels, while Legend playfully runs a red rose down her stomach. Ooh, la la!

The loved-up couple were also interviewed for the issue, in which they opened up about the process behind hiring food trucks for the Eric Garner protesters in New York City back in December.

Finally, The Cara Delevingne and Kim Kardashian Cover We’ve All Been Waiting for is Here

Looks like guest editing the new issue of LOVE magazine wasn’t enough for Cara Delevingne.

After having posed alongside BFF Kendall Jenner for the first of the magazine’s spring 2015 covers released back in December, the model-turned-contributing editor has once again found her way onto the glossy’s cover, this time posing playfully alongside fashion’s other favorite Kardashian: Kim K.

In what is now the fourth cover to debut from the glossy’s upcoming issue, Cara joins her pal’s big sis in a black and white portrait by Sølve Sundsbø with styling by Katie Grand.  Despite wearing similar looks from Sonia Rykiel’s spring/summer 2015 collection, the British beauty and her Kardashian counterpart seem to be polar opposites when it comes to their personalities: In the cover image, Cara is every bit her goofy self posing cross-eyed with her tongue out, while Kim gives her signature selfie “smize.”

As previously reported, the Cara/Kardashian-heavy issue also marks the first time that the British “It-girl” will showcase her new skills as a contributing editor for the magazine.  For her first task, Cara was asked to interview Kim for the cover story, which, if we had to guess, is likely to include more than a references to Kim’s famous derriere.  We are talking about fashion’s favorite wild child here, after all.

But you can find out for yourself when the magazine hits newsstands on February 7.

It’s Here! Victoria’s Secret Unveils It’s Official Super Bowl Ad and It’s Even Sexier Than We Imagined

Victoria’s Secret unveiled its highly-anticipated Super Bowl commercial on Monday and as it turns out, it’s even sexier than we imagined.

Despite being covered up in protective pads and jerseys in last week’s football-themed teaser video, the final ad pieces together earlier campaign footage of Angels Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, Behati Prinsloo, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Adriana Lima doing what they do best— i.e. showing off their assets in barely-there lace and angel wings.

This year marks the third game in which the lingerie brand is running an ad, with its most recent appearance in 2008.  Similar to 2008′s ad, this year’s spot will run during the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter of the game and serve to remind viewers to “Let the Real Games Begin” this Valentine’s Day in lingerie from Victoria’s Secret. Although, something tells us they won’t need much reminding after catching the Angels in these steamy looks.  Don’t believe us? See for yourself in the video below!
