How Alessandra Ambrosio is Getting Into the Christmas Spirit This Season

No cozy Christmas sweaters here!  Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio is offering a slightly different take on holiday dressing this season, dressing up as a very sexy reindeer on the set of her latest Victoria’s Secret shoot.

Spotted in Los Angeles on Monday, the Victoria’s Secret model was seen frolicking on a beach in just her lingerie and a pair of reindeer antlers, her ruby red pout giving off a festive holiday vibe.  With her toes between the sand, the hot mama seemed full of Christmas cheer as giggled and blew kisses to the camera.

Perhaps it was Sunday’s family outing that had the Brazilian supermodel in such a festive mood.  Prior to hitting the beach, Alessandra brought her five-year-old daughter Anja and two-year-old son Noah to visit Santa Claus in Santa Monica.  Blessed with supermodel genes, Anja posed like a natural for old Papa Noel, looking more adorable than ever in holiday-ready red jumper and brown ankle boots— just like her mama!  Unfortunately, Noah was less than thrilled about the annual Christmas outing, bursting into tears as soon as he got into Santa’s lap.

Despite the tears, Alessandra seems to be enjoying the holiday season with her family, sharing numerous picks of her family festivities.  From nutcracker dolls, to Santa himself, get the full look at how Alessandra is gearing up for the holidays below:

It’s Official: Cara Delevingne Ruled the Internet in 2013!

Well, this settles it: 2013 was officially the year of  Cara Delevingne!

On Tuesday, Internet giants Tumblr and Google unveiled their annual zeitgeist reports, offering a fascinating insight into what has gripped the world this year.  Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Beyonce were among the most searched celebrities, but more importantly, it was model Cara Delevingne who came out on top this year, earning the title of the ‘most rebloged’ model on Tumblr, and the ‘most searched’ fashion figure on Google in the UK!

The titles are hardly surprising given Cara’s incredible breadth of work across both the fashion and film industries this year.  In addition to earning high-profile campaigns with Fendi, DKNY, Mulberry and YSL Beauty among others, Cara increased her profile with two British Vogue covers, the cover of W magazine’s all-important September issue and a second BFA Model of the Year nomination.  As for her growing list of IMDB credits, the model/actress proved that she’s more than just a pretty face, earning starring roles in “Kids in Love,” “London Fields” and most recently, the upcoming Amanda Knox biopic, “Face of an Angel.”

Not to be outdone, fellow British cover girl Kate Moss also earned a place on Google’s most searched list, coming in just behind Victoria’s Beckham in fifth place.  Throughout the last twelve months, the supermodel has announced a string of exciting new projects, including campaigns with Stuart Weiztman, Versace and Eleven Paris, covers for British Vogue and Playboy, a comeback Topshop collection for 2014 and a collaboration with Carephone Warehouse.  Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Naomi Campbell joined Kate and Cara, coming in at sixth and tenth respectively.

In terms of Tumblr, it’s easy to see how Cara would reign supreme on the photo-heavy site, given her headline-making street style looks and social media prowess.  As for the rest of that list, you’ll find supermodels Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel rounding out the second and third spots, with Barbara Palvin, Kate, Rosie, Adriana Lima and Karlie Kloss topping off the top ten.

You can see the full list of Tumblr’s ‘most rebloged’ models here, and check out the slideshow below for a look back at some of Cara’s most memorable red carpet looks to date!

Lisalla Montenegro Ties the Knot!

The wedding bells were ringing for model Lisalla Montenegro this weekend, as the gorgeous Brazilian model officially tied the knot with Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher C.J. Wilson in an intimate ceremony held in Laguna Beach, California on Sunday.  The bride stunned in a custom Inbal Dror gown and white veil headpiece, while the Wilson donned a custom Elevve tuxedo for the occasion.

“We did it!!! Mr. & Mrs. Wilson official!! #Wilsonweddingweek – Thank you everyone for coming!!” wrote the model in an breathtaking Instagram photo from the big day.

Lisalla and C.J. were said to have met two years ago through mutual friends while she was filming a Maybelline commercial.  According to People, the newlyweds will be spending their honeymoon in Lisalla’s native Brazil.

Ahead of her wedding day, Lisalla celebrated her bachelorette party at the La Perla lingerie store in LA.  Joined by a group of her best girl friends, the soon-to-be Mrs. Wilson enjoyed a Pin-Up Girl-themed bash, complete with a corset cake and a special selection of lingerie for the honeymoon ahead.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

 

VS Rookie Malaika Firth Takes Over for Cara Delevingne in Burberry’s New Spring ’14 Campaign!

Burberry is back with a new Spring/Summer 2014 campaign cast and surprise, neither Cara Delevingne nor Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are anywhere to be found!  Instead, the British brand has decided to switch things up entirely, trading in perhaps its two biggest model brand ambassadors of recent years, for a cast of bright, budding film, music and fashion stars— most notably among them, model Malaika Firth.  If the name doesn’t sound familiar it should!  The up-and-coming Brit—who was also among our ‘Top Ten Models to Watch’ this season— made headlines this year when she became the first black model to star in a Prada campaign since Naomi Campbell in 1994, only to top it all off with a debut performance in the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  Now, the 19-year-old Kenyan-born beauty replaces last year’s campaign stars, Cara Delevingne and Romeo Beckham, proving all the more that she’s One to Watch in the coming year!

Shot by Mario Testino, the images, which Christopher Bailey describes as having “a gentle, effortless, romantic quality, brought to life by a cast of bright young British talent,” are just that, bright and full of youthful energy.  Joined by fellow models, Matilda Lowther, who opened the most recent Burberry Prorsum womenswear show, Neelam Johal, Callum Ball and 16-year-old Jean Campbell, who made her debut in a 20page spread in the October issue of Vogue UK, Malaika poses in a mix of classic trench coats and the brand’s latest pastel-ridden collection.  Young though they may be, both Malaika and Jean are already showing the early signs of fashion superstardom.  Mark our words, this won’t be the last you see of these top models-in-training!

WATCH: Rosie’s Rockin’ Christmas Striptease!

Once again, LOVE Magazine has provided us with a festive fashion treat to help tie us over until Christmas day!

The glossy behind our favorite fashion-filled advent calendar unveiled its latest installment today, revealing Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in what may be its sexiest lip-synching video to date!  Like the LOVE advent models before her, Rosie holds nothing back as she strips down to just her lingerie and a pair of fierce thigh-high heeled boots, all the while writhing around to a rock interpretation of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”  The 26-year-old even goes so far as to show off her dirty dance moves in between two strands of holiday lights, while tossing around her blonde tresses and pouting seductively into the camera.  Looks like Rosie may end up on Santa’s naughty list after all!

Watch Rosie in her sultry Christmas striptease in the video below:
