Before Emily Simms stormed out on The Bachelor Season 3’s Sam Wood and the rose ceremony he was trying to conduct, she actually shared some pretty intimate moments with the man, one being the time she received a diamond bracelet on their first date.

An intoxicated exit and a proposal to another woman later, Emily wants to get rid of the gift that so many of the other show’s contestants envied. “I have decided to auction off the diamond bracelet I received on The Bachelor this year,” Emily revealed on her Instagram. (more…)

Did This Givenchy Ad Really Need 27 Models? (Forum Buzz)

Leave it to Riccardo Tisci to bring his A game when it comes to casting his latest advertising campaign for Givenchy. We were teased about the high-profile shoot via Tisci’s Instagram last month and now the finished product is here for us to deliberate over. Veteran models Mariacarla Boscono, Natalia Vodianova, Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, Iselin Steiro and Gemma Ward are joined by newbies Isis Bataglia, Lexi Boling, Leila Goldkuhl, Kris Gottschalk, Imaan Hammam, Issa Lish, Lineisy Montero and Greta Varlese for the ads, which were shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott across several locations in New York.

This isn’t the first time the plus-size model addressed Victoria’s Secret. She once posted a lingerie picture on Instagram, writing: “If Victoria’s Secret needs a plus-size angel… call me. PS DUH us fuller ladies like to wear lingerie & look sexy. Get with it.” In September of this year, she admonished them for not carrying plus-sizes in stores. Victoria’s Secret has yet to acknowledge her comments. “I don’t think they cared,” Holliday said. “They probably didn’t look up from their glitter and angel body spray — or money!” (more…)
