Look of the Week: Jourdan Dunn Stuns While She Shops!

Just days before her birthday, Jourdan Dunn stepped out for some shopping in New York City and turned heads in her strapless patterned dress.  The model was spotted leaving a store wearing a stunning printed minidress and nude sandals.  Dunn accessorized her patterned outfit with a simple red clutch and kept her beauty look simple, opting to let her slightly ombre-d hair fall naturally.

Adam and Behati Step Out for the First Time as Husband and Wife

The honeymoon may be over, but it looks like the romance is still alive and well for Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel and Maroon 5 frontman returned to Los Angeles after enjoying a blissful honeymoon at a secret location in the weeks following their July nuptials.  The newlyweds were spotted walking hand in hand on Wednesday evening as they stepped out for a romantic dinner date in Hollywood.  The Voice mentor and his wife were said to have rolled up to Mozza restaurant in style with Adam behind the wheel of a classic 1950s Mercedes-Benz coupe with eye-catching swing-up doors.

The Namibian model looked every bit a rocker’s wife, stepping out in a pair of daisy duke shorts paired with a Metallic tee and chunky black leather booties.  In an ode to the ’90s, the catwalker accessorized her look with a plaid shirt tied around her waist and Rag & Bone fedora.

Since tying the knot in Mexico last month, Behati and Adam have been mostly silent on social media, sharing just a single snap from their honeymoon earlier this week.  “There’s a strong situation going on here,” Levine captioned the photo, which shows him and his new bride pulling stern, Blue Steel-esque faces while sporting matching his-and-her sunnies.  So cute!

The couple, who have been together for two years, got married in front of 275 family and friends on July 19 at Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico.  Guests included fellow Victoria’s Secret models Candice Swanepoel and Erin Heatherton, supermodel Coco Rocha, photographer Russell James, and actors Jonah Hill and Jason Segel.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds were reportedly planning to honeymoon in South Africa, near Behati’s native Namibia, to celebrate with people who couldn’t make the trip to Mexico, although those reports have yet to be confirmed.

WATCH: The First Look at Suki Waterhouse in “Love Rosie”

She may be one of fashion’s hottest ‘It girls’ right now, but make no mistake about it, Suki Waterhouse is on the fast-track to Hollywood stardom!

Like her BFF Cara Delevingne, the 22-year-old British model has spent the better part of the past year working on her acting chops with several big-name flicks, the first of which, “Love Rosie,” we’re now getting the first look at today!

Starring alongside Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, Suki plays Bethany Williams, the love interest of Claflin’s character, Alex.  The rom com is based on a novel by Cecelia Ahern, otherwise known as the author behind “Where Rainbows End” and “P.S. I Love You,” and follows best friends Alex and Rosie (Lily Collins), who plan on attending the same US university together in the fall.  For her part, Suki appears to have had a bit of an all-American makeover for the film, which is set in 2002 — the height of Britney Spears’s reign.  Like the famous pop diva, Suki’s character appears to be found of wearing pastel denim jackets, boot cut jeans and that old styling trick of wearing a silk scarf for a belt.  Needless to say, Bethany’s look couldn’t be further from the model’s signature uniform: bed-head fringe, retro frocks and leather jackets.  Still, her acting talents speak for themselves in the new full-length trailer, giving us more than enough reason to see Suki action on the big-screen when the film hits theaters this October.

In the meantime,catch a sneak peek of Suki’s acting debut in the trailer below!

Go Inside Miranda Kerr’s New Malibu Digs

Ok, this is one house warming party that we’d actually like to attend!

Miranda Kerr has reportedly shelled out a little over $2.15 million on a new Malibu beach home, Variety reports, and naturally, it’s pretty spectacular!  Located  about 3.5 miles west of her former rental near Malibu’s Matador State Beach, the supermodel’s new residence is described as a three-quarter-acre, ocean view micro-compound coming in at just over 1,700 square feet.  Built in 1960, the property is said to have three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms private outdoor structure that Miranda will no doubt use as yoga/fitness studio.

As for the interior, the open plan living area also comes complete with “a compact living room with wide-plank wood floors, a raised hearth stone and granite fireplace surrounded by built-in bookshelves, a vaulted and beamed ceiling, and a pentagonal wall of windows with a serene, through-the-trees ocean view.” Miranda’s outdoor pool and jacuzzi also connect to a guest house, which houses a small kitchenette and bathroom.

It appears that the supermodel/entrepreneur has wasted no time in moving into her new digs.  On Wednesday she took to Instagram to show off her new abode, posting a gorgeous seaside snap alongside the caption, “California dreaming.”

No word yet on whether or not Miranda will sell her current Upper East Side apartment.  Considering that she’s consistently ranked among the world’s highest earning models though, we’re betting that she can afford it.
