Britney Spears may not always pick the best dudes, but these days she’s gotten craftier with how she picks them. Now that she’s done dating her agent, Britney reportedly flipped through model agency catalogs to find her next beau. She took a liking to Ford model Bekin Trenova, who recently broke up with a Victoria’s Secret model. To get her man, apparently she had him “audition” for a music video. According to a source, “When he got there, there was no camera crew. There was just Britney. She was looking sexy. She made it pretty clear that she was less interested in hiring him than in dating him.” He supposedly thought it was creepy and politely excused himself. This one may not have worked out for her, but why shouldn’t Britney get her men delivered? Men use the casting couch excuse all the time! [NY Daily News]

I’ve got a soft spot for this lingerie commercial for New Zealand-based brand HOTmilk (I know, unfortunate name). The sexy line of underthings is targeted at pregnant women and is about “empowering women, to remind them that they are beautiful confident and SEXY,” even when their stomachs are stretched to epic proportions and their nipples are leaking. While I agree with Broadsheet that we should be celebrating the beauty of the pregnant female form through other means than expensive lingerie, I think it’s refreshing to see a sexy commercial where a woman’s swollen belly is on full display and a hot sexy man is losing his s**t over it.

Eliot Spitzer’s favorite former call girl, Ashley Dupre, has traded in her hooker boots for high fashion. The curvaceous brunette strutted the runway in Bahar Shahpar’s eco-friendly show during New York Fashion Week on Tuesday. While Dupre’s edgy new look was certainly different from her usual f**ks-bald-politicians-for-money vibe, Ecouterre.com was able to identify her based on her forearm tattoos. Personally, I think Dupre’s presence at Fashion Week is refreshing! It’s nice to see a model with some tits and ass, not to mention a little scandal. [Ecouterre.com] Keep reading »
Many of us have seen photos of Anna Wintour‘s office at this point—and it was most famously copied for “The Devil Wears Prada” (though she’s since redecorated to banish any similarities, we hear)—but what really makes up the chic space? Like, can we be label whores for a minute? Indeed, because Apartment Therapy has a piece-by-piece breakdown of its contents! (Based on the above screenshot from “The September Issue” and a few “60 Minutes” clips.) Check out all the interior details, after the jump!

Aretha Franklin has been known for showing off her ample bosom in recent years, but she covered up her cleavage for a stroll in Central Park. Now, if only she’d do something about the clashing animal prints of her dress and hat. [NYC, 9/14/09] Keep reading »

London Fashion Week is about to be a quarter-century old! (Insert joke here about quarter-life crises.) For its 25th anniversary, Elle UK is sponsoring a huge ad campaign, which went up today in tube stations all over the city. Having commissioned 25 designers to make posters, it’s clear the magazine gave the artists free reign on what they could dream up, because most don’t even reference Fashion Week. Matthew Williamson’s design features a tie-dye print; Mulberry came up with a crafty “Love” slogan with a peace sign as the O; Paul Smith’s illustration features different colored hangers intertwined in a squiggly mess.
What we’re really finding awesome, however, is Henry Holland’s take (above), “25 yrs of L.F.W. and all you get is this lousy poster,” which inadvertently pokes fun at London Fashion Week’s struggle to keep up with Paris and New York. Check out some of the other Elle posters after the jump! [Elle UK] Keep reading »
