Gisele and Baby Vivian Model Matching Swimsuits in Brazil

Gisele Bündchen. and her daughter Vivian have had some cute mother-daughter moments before, but this one may just take the cake!

While vacationing on the tropical island of Fernandode Noronha off the coast of Brazil last week, the supermodel and her precious baby girl were spotted frolicking on the beach in matching printed swimsuits— Gisele opting for a teeny-weeny string bikini and aviator shades, and for Vivian, a near identical frilly bikini bottom and matching sun hat. Our hearts melt!

Prior to hitting the beach, Gisele lent her gorgeous bikini figure to Wednesday’s Colcci fashion show, where hubby Tom Brady sat front row and center to cheer on his beautiful wife as she did what she does best.  The NFL quarterback was seen clapping and cheering on his lady love as she strut down the runway in three separate looks.

Following the show, the Brady-Bundchen clan joined a group of pals onboard a yacht, where they enjoyed snorkling and snapping photos in front of the scenic background.  The supermodel later shared the images, including one with her twin sister Pati, on her Instagram page, writing, “My sister Pati and I! #Twins Eu e minha irmã Pati! #gêmeas #morrodoisirmãos”

Is Chanel Iman Engaged?

Be warned: we’re taking these latest rumors as a grain of salt, but according to Page Six, Chanel Iman and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky might have gotten engaged!

According to the paper’s unnamed “sources,” the 25-year-old rapper recently proposed to the 23-year-old model, who is said to have “happily accepted.”  Like a great number of celebrity couple these days, the two are said to be keeping their engagement a secret for the time being— again, make of that what you will.

The details at this time remain scarce, as neither the fashion model, nor the fashion killa have yet to release so much as a hint on Twitter and Instagram— never mind an official statement.  At any rate, we’d love nothing more than to see this style-savvy couple, who first got together early last year, make things official.  And yes, we’ll admit, if the engagement rumors prove true, we’ll be excited to see the ring too. Congrats Chanel!

Scroll through the slideshow below for a look at the couple’s cutest moments to date:

Style Sightings: The Supers Reign Supreme From Sao Paulo to Venice

When the weekend party lineup includes such headlining events as the annual DVF Awards and amfAR’s Inspiration Gala in São Paulo, you can bet on at least a few model appearances.  Lucky for us, we didn’t get just a few, we got the whole pack!

The model style parade kicked off on Friday night at the annual amfAR Inspiration Gala in São Paulo, Brazil where Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Candice Swanepoel and Ana Beatriz Barros stole the show in a varying assortment of red carpet gowns.  Kate went the boho route, stepping out in a red Saint Laurent spring/summer 2013 dress, which came complete with a daring drawstring neckline and tasselled detailing.  Candice looked lovely in a neon-yellow strapless lace Valentino gown, which she paired with yellow-diamond Amsterm Sauer earrings and ring, while Naomi was a vision in a heavily embroidered Givenchy Haute Couture white gown.

In Venice, models Lily Aldridge, Jessica Hart and Crystal Renn put their own unique spin on red carpet dressing at the Save Venice Enchanted Garden Ball in Venice, Italy.  Lily was an ethereal beauty in an ultra-sheer Marc Jacobs gown topped off with a spring-ready pink floral crown.  Aussie stunner Jessica Hart also opted for a see-through lace number— though hers was of the Dolce & Gabbana variety— while upgrading her headpiece to an oversized black feathered Venetian mask.

At the DVF Awards on Saturday, Chanel Iman was white hot in a zip-up mini dress and strappy silver sandals, while Karolina Kurkova shined in a bright floral print Preen shirtdress at the Lucky FABB Fashion and Beauty Blog Conference.

Cara Delevingne Cozies Up to Ondria Hardin for YSL

 

It was just days ago that Cara Delevingne (and her lips) made headlines following her recent escapades in Tulum, Mexico with Michelle Rodriguez, and it appears she’s back at it again today— only this time, there’s another woman involved!

Don’t worry, it’s not what you think. The British catwalker has merely returned as the gorgeous face of the latest Yves Saint Laurent Beauty campaign co-starring top model Ondria Hardin.  In the filrty new ad images, the stunning duo cuddle cheek-to-cheek and appear to be on the verge of a kiss, while also modeling an array of brightly colored lip, cheek and nail colors.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Cara has been caught in near-smooch with a lovely lady.  You may recall the “it-girl” posting a similar kissy-style snap with pal Sienna Miller at last year’s Met Gala and more recently, with fellow Burberry model Suki Waterhouse.
