Miranda Kerr has put another magazine cover under her belt, adding InStyle Australia‘s January 2015 issue to her impressive portfolio. While her interviews usually talk about her skincare line or how amicable she and baby-daddy Orlando Bloom are post-divorce, this time the 31-year-old supermodel revealed a little more for the glossy, including what she’s learned from past relationships, dating as a mother, and, at last, that Victoria’s Secret contract.
Miranda fronts a lot of campaigns, but she has revealed to InStyle Australia that her terminated contracts with Victoria’s Secret and David Jones, which both came to an abrupt dead end last year, actually worked in her favour.
“When I didn’t continue the contracts with Victoria’s Secret and David Jones it freed me up a lot,” Miranda explained. “With Victoria’s Secret, I used to travel a lot and I couldn’t do that being a mother,” she continued, even though she’s been globetrotting for brands like Wonderbra and Escada this year. “Now I make sure that I work a certain amount of days and then I’ll have days off with Flynn.” (more…)
Iggy Azalea and her bae, Nick Young, just keep getting cuter in their role as Forever 21′s holiday faces, this time quizzing each other through a game of “questions from a hat” in the high-street brand’s latest promotional video.
Iggy ditches her fishnet tights and skintight ensembles for the festive video, wearing a furry white sweater while kicking back next to her main main, Nick, who’s in a white slim-fitting top, accessorised with a red-tartan scarf and tassled beanie. Oh, and the two don matching triple-stripe knee-high socks. All together now: ca-ute!
The hat in question is actually a beanie because Christmas, with mind-boggling questions like “Would you rather live by the sea, or under the sea?” and more pressing matters like “Nick Young or Channing Tatum?” Apparently Iggy, like 99 per cent of the female population, thinks Channing is “hot”, creating a jealousy-riddled Nick who won’t let his girl check Channing, or his abs, out.

We won’t call it a shock, we’ll just call it a (relatively) long time coming. Gigi Hadid is one of the buzziest models right now and a campaign favorite of Tom Ford and Guess. For a long time, we’ve been thinking her sexy-yet-sweet looks and piercing eyes would be perfect for Victoria’s Secret and now, it seems the lingerie giant agrees with us. Hadid took to Instagram to give her followers a glimpse of her new shoot for Victoria’s Secret PINK.
Hadid did not walk in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but if she continues to scoop up gigs like this, we have a feeling we might be seeing her on the catwalk with some blinged-out angel wings when the show airs next year. Another buzzed-about face missing from this year’s show was Kendall Jenner (who is BFFs with Hadid), whom many speculated would have walked for Victoria’s Secret were it not for Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show.
Who knows? Maybe next year the two famous former reality starlets will stomp down the VS catwalk together.
LOVE magazine wants you to have a kiki with Kris Jenner, who stars in the magazine’s 2014 advent calendar. The momager extraordinaire, clad in a black suit dress over a cut-out mesh piece, does a little sexy dance with a candy cane, showing the world exactly where her daughter Kendall (who appeared in the calendar last week) got all her moves.
While Kris has been immortalized in a Doug Inglish directed LOVE clip, Kim Kardashian is about to be immortalized as a statue. ELLE U.K. reports that Kanye West has commissioned an artist to create a statue of Kim, posed in a fashion similar to that famous Grace Jones Island Life cover, taken by Jean-Paul Goude.
Amber Rose, Kanye’s ex-girlfriend, did her own rendition of the pose back in 2010 for Complex, so maybe Kanye just has a thing for making all his significant others do odes to Goude. Kim’s Paper magazine cover was also a modern update of a vintage Goude image, so she’s no stranger to the theme. According to reports, the plans for the statue will be unveiled on a forthcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, so stay tuned!

Forget “bae” and “feminist,” 2014 was all about the word “culture,” at least according to Merriam-Webster. The dictionary has named it this year’s buzzword, thanks to a huge jump in lookups over the past months.
Merriam-Webster attributes 2014′s preoccupation with defining phenomena (both pertinent and frivolous) in our society for the word’s popularity. Rape culture, celebrity culture and cultural appropriation, for example, were talked about a lot this year and it had folks turning to their dictionaries. “The term conveys a kind of academic attention to systematic behavior and allows us to identify and isolate an idea, issue, or group,” Merriam-Webster writes, noting that it usually sees a spike in lookups for the word around the time when school starts, but this time the word had a strong showing all year long.
Nostalgia, insidious, legacy, feminism, je ne sais quoi (more of a phrase than a word, really), innovation, surreptitious, autonomy and morbidity rounded out the top 10 list. Pretty important words, if you ask us.
