Six of the most iconic models of the past 20 years have come together for a spectacular new advertising campaign by French luxury goods brand Louis Vuitton. Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Natalia Vodianova, Eva Herzigova, Angela Lindvall and Stephanie Seymour are all featured in the stunning new ads, for which they're photographed posing on vibrantly coloured sports cars.
"I thought the idea of hot chicks and cars was really cool - and very Richard Prince," says Marc Jacobs, creative director of the brand.
It's not the first time the American designer has drawn inspiration from US photographer and painter Richard Prince. At the most recent Louis Vuitton catwalk show in Paris, models strutted down the runway dressed as nurses - a theme Marc Jacobs said was also inspired by Richard's work. And the car featured in the new spring/summer 2008 ads is a 1970 Dodge Challenger - belonging to the snapper himself.
"It is kind of groundbreaking to have six of the supermodels together," said the brand's director of communications. "If Marc Jacobs was managing the budget, he would have even taken 12!"
The 27-year-old Brazilian bombshell was later seen leaving for the football game at Giants Stadium to watch quarterback Tom Brady, her boyfriend from the New England Patriots.
Early in the second quarter of the Patriots-Giants game, Brady threw a touchdown pass to Randy Moss, giving the Patriots the NFL record for points scored in a season–a perfect record of 16-0 with a win over the Giants 38-35.

Understandably, his teammates are shocked. “Ever since he started dating Adriana Lima, he’s a new man,” [Mark] Madsen said, laughing. “He’s flying all over the court. He dunked! I’ve never seen him dunk.”

Jetting in from New York in time to spend Christmas with her family, the Victoria's Secret stunner is set to add some serious sex appeal to the sleepy coastal NSW town where she is currently holidaying with her parents and extended family.
While there was no sign of her boyfriend Orlando Bloom, it is rumoured the big screen heart throb could be arriving in Sydney for some summer lovin' with the Aussie beauty this week.
On her arrival into Sydney airport, Kerr was attached to her mobile phone - overheard saying "baby I wish you were here with me now."
After enjoying some well deserved rest and relaxation, the leggy star will toast to her amazing year alongside the city's A-list at the Oneday event held at Justin Hemmes brand spankin' super-venue Ivy on January 1.

Leo won over his audience by reading a winter-themed children's book, Snow, and acting out the voices of each charaction. "The kids kept cracking up," our spy reports, noting one boy who donned Leo's black baseball cap.
The Christmas-themed convo continued into an engaging debate about the best Christmas specials on TV. The four kids argued with Leo about which was better, his favorite How the Grinch Stole Christmas or A Charlie Brown Christmas.
His Israeli supermodel girlfriend admitted she didn't grow up watching Christmas specials but said she liked Mariah Carey's Christmas performances.
Both Bar and Leo, who broke up for a few weeks in October, posed for photos, hugged and shared their food with their new friends. Bar offered up her silver dollar pancakes and Leo encouraged two of the tots to try his turkey bacon.
"Leo looks very happy and is very comfortable talking with kids it seems," observed our spy who said that Leo told the kids to meet him by the pool later in the afternoon.

It seems Gisele, famed for her modelling talent, is instead going on the other side of the camera to do a 'Kate' (who recently designed her own Topshop range) - design under D&G to front her own range called "Bundchen by Dolce & Gabbana". The range will be sold worldwide and will be released next Spring.
She did throw a modest holiday party at a lower east side dive bar and her employees drank a lot because there was no food. According to our source, Tyra arrived for a brief stop, looking like a million bucks, and said she was on her way to Italy. Before she left, she told them "I want to thank you guys for working so hard - I have a special guest - here's Santa!" Everybody ran to Santa's big bag and found it was full of limp McDonald's cheeseburgers! Employees got cheeseburgers for Christmas! (Our source isn't sure if the higher-ups got private bonuses but the everyday people didn't.) Staffers tore open their burgers, hoping for gift certificates. Nothing.
Unhappy workers ended up drinking themselves senseless and brawling in the street. One needed an ambulance. Tyra could learn a thing or two about generosity from Oprah.
Doherty, who split with Moss last summer, could make $1 million, a source said, adding, "Producers hope he'll let them use a lot of film he and Kate shot on camcorders." But an insider told PageSix.com, "Kate is furious with Pete. She has contacted her lawyers and plans to get an injunction to stop the production."
Moss will be horrified if the tapes surface. "Some of it is really raunchy stuff Kate believed would never be seen by anyone else," we're told. "She'll feel betrayed."

For over 8 months, an international team of renowned designers and stylists worked to design and create the sexy runway looks worn by the 30 supermodels at the 2007 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The show included 15 corsets, show pieces and accessories that were embellished with CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements and made exclusively for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show by Australian jewelry designer Jenny Manik Mercian and took over 6 months to make.
The lingerie, wings and scenery were embellished with more than 1 million CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements for the fashion show.
Parisian shoe designer Christian Louboutin made 75 pairs of custom designed shoes and boots especially for the show.
It required over 3 months and a team of 42 people to produce the 11 pairs of Angel wings that were designed by famed wingman Martin Izquierdo for this year's show.
The retractable snowflake wings worn by Supermodel Heidi Klum in the last section of the show was a first in that the beautiful snowflake expanded to 10 feet in width as she stepped out on to the runway.
Supermodel Karolina Kurkova's opening look featured a custom made outfit created by LeSage. This incredible creation was made of sequins and included a corset, jacket, boots and a headdress. Costing $20,000, it was the single most expensive outfit in the history of the fashion show.
Supermodel Selita Ebanks was also strutting down the runway in a high price tag herself. She modeled the Very Sexy Fantasy Set costing $4.5 million. This set was created exclusively for VS by famed international jeweler Mouawad.
For the first time ever, Victoria's Secret and Mouawad designed an entire set to go along with the Fantasy Bra and panty by adding a hair pin, garter and cuff. All pieces of the Fantasy gift set were encrusted with diamonds, emeralds, rubies and yellow sapphires taking over 880 hours to make.
This year's show included 2 feather trains and 1 cape that were all over 10 feet in length and took over 3 months to create. All of these masterpieces were made of rare feathers.
VS had to charter a DC-9 cargo plane and 63 foot line haul truck in order to ship the outfits, wings, shoes, makeup and wardrobe supplies from New York to Los Angeles for the show.
Twenty-five cartons of Very Sexy Makeup were shipped from New York to LA to be used on the models for the show.
Of course, the show would not be complete without shimmering, bronze, scented skin which is why the Victoria's Secret Bare Bronze Bronzing Booth was created exclusively for the show. Before hitting the runway, the Angels achieved their golden glow by using Bare Bronze Self-Tan Tint, Leg-Perfecting Spray Tint, Sexy Sparkle Shimmer Moisture Mist, Sexy Sparkle Body Oil and Body Powder.
It took 18 makeup artists, 15 hair stylists, 8 nail technicians, and 7 body bronzers to prep and a beautify the 30 models for the fashion show. Four massage therapists were also on hand to help the models unwind during their breaks.
Over 40 bottles of Victoria's Secret Sexy Sparkle Body Powder in Vanilla Gold was used to make the sexy bodies on the runway shimmer!
The most popular lipstick and lip gloss at the fashion show was undeniably Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Makeup Perfect Lipstick in VIP and Very Sexy Makeup Lip Gloss in Intimate. So popular that the models wore the shades for the rest of the evening.
The sexy vibe continued on into the evening as the after party began at the Renaissance Hotel. Alessandra Ambrosio, Selita Ebanks, Adriana Lima, Izabel Goulart and Miranda Kerr were all spotted busting a move on the dance floor.
A party is the only way to describe the atmosphere backstage where the all of the models danced away to the music while they waited their turn to walk the runway.
Approximately 73 gallons of Imperia Vodka were consumed at the after party!

Yes - it's that time of year already when the Victoria's Secret models jet off to the Caribbean to shoot the last of the swimwear and summer collection for next year! There's been lots of paparazzi on the exclusive island of St.Barths where the girls are currently shooting providing mountains of pictures; so far, we've spied Alessandra Ambrosio and Karolina Kurkova in their bikini-clad glory looking as gorgeous as ever! Here's a sneak preview of what you'll be getting through your letterbox later next year....
We thought these guys would last a while longer but one thing is for sure - if she is single now she won't be for long! With lips like that she's sure to be taken again very soon....join the back of the queue guys!
Apparently, she was recently spotted in Sao Paulo making out with Robertinho Marinho, grandson of the Globo founder and an ex of close friend Raica Oliviera, at club Disco where she was partying the night away.

It's everyone's favourite are-they-aren't-they couple once again, and they've been fuelling the rumours by being spotted together in Hong Kong recently where Orlando is rumoured to be filming his latest blockbuster. We think, after the many sightings/rumours, its looking a lot more ON than OFF!

When an adoring fan approached Alessandra asking for a picture in New York she was happy to oblige, but her boyfriend on the other hand wasn't, dragging her into a cab to get away! You can see the video here:

"Growing up, I had a lot of friends that were boys but they certainly weren't all over me, it was the opposite," Karolina Kurkova told Pop Tarts backstage while getting primed and prepped for the VS Annual Runway Show, which airs Tuesday night. "Most girls were already women, and here I was so tall with really long arms and really long legs. Boys definitely didn't think I was cute," she said.
However, the Czech-born beauty didn't let nasty name-calling deny her of her dream."I've overcome it all — you have to accept yourself, be confident and believe in yourself because the audience can tell if you don't," she said. "You just can't look around and look at her body and look at her abs, you have to accept yourself. I love my body, I love myself."
And while busty Brazilian Izabel Goulart also has every reason to totally love herself, there was once a time when she thought she was the least sexy specimen in her school. "No boys for me growing up! I was so skinny and tall. Everybody called me a giraffe," Goulart said. "I had no boobs and no butt and nobody liked me, I was so lonely. All the boys would come to me and want advice because they wanted my friend. But nobody ever wanted me — high school was a very sad, lonely time."
But one Australian "Angel" face who doesn't need to worry too much about being ugly or unappealing is the latest leggy lingerie lass to replace Gisele Bundchen, fresh-faced Miranda Kerr. "Everyone feels their most gorgeous when well-rested, but the good news is that the makeup they use on us makes us look good even if we don't feel good," Kerr said. "But it's so important to embrace what you have been given, that's the most important thing, and just to be grateful. Someone will always have something better than you, but then there are always plenty of people that are less fortunate."
And while the dimple-faced doll is now reportedly "fortunate" enough to be dating Orlando Bloom (Pop Tarts popped Bloom sitting by the side of the stage during the taping of the fashion festivity and canoodling with Kerr at the after-party), she wasn't always such a glamorous gal. "I was such a tomboy growing up — boys didn't think of me as one of the sexy girls," Miranda said. "I was just someone they would beat around with and ride motorbikes with. Now look at me — I'm quite the opposite."
However, it seems Miranda could trade tales with busty buddy Marisa Miller, who once upon a time would have rather worn a wet suit than a Wonderbra.
"It's funny because growing up I was a tomboy, played a lot of sports, so it's funny that my job has taken this direction because I'm really like a T-shirt and jeans kind of girl and my friends always laugh when they see me, because they know me and I'm really low-key," the California native told us. "But at the same time I have become a girly girl and that's what I love about the job — being able to explore this side of yourself. Victoria's Secret makes it very fun to be a girl."

When Miranda spotted paparazzi, she broke off and walked the other way. Kerr has reportedly been seeing Orlando Bloom for the past few months but were first spotted apartment hunting together back in March, and have apparently been spotted eating in New York at various high end restaurants.
Orlando was reportedly backstage this past week to cheer on Miranda at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Last night saw the end of many months' excitement and speculation draw to a close - Victoria's Secret's, for this year anyway, were finally revealed to us all in the form of one amazing show and 31 stunning models from all over the world, plus a contest winner whose prize was to take part in the show....but as I'm sure you guessed, she wasn't exactly an ugly duckling and neither did she have an inch to pinch!
The final model list (with a few suprises) is as follows:
Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Karolina Kurkova, Miranda Kerr, Selita Ebanks, Izabel Goulart, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Andi Muise, Candice Swanepoel, Caroline Winberg, Marija Vujovic, Julia Stegner, Jessica Stam, Eugenia Volodina, Inguna Butane, Behati Prinsloo, Lindsay Ellingson, Elise Crombez, Michaela Kocianova, Flavia Oliviera, Oluchi Onweabega, Jessica White, Isabeli Fontana, Marisa Miller, Hana Sokoupova, Noemie Lenoir, Angela Lindvall, Erin Wasson and Morgane Dubled - plus the mystery contest winner.
Suprisingly, this year some previous fashion show favorites were missed out such as Ana Beatriz Barros, Heather Marks, Doutzen Kroes, Caroline Trentini and Natasha Poly (she had family problems and had to cancel at the last minute). It also saw the return of old time favourite Isabeli Fontana after her pregnancy, plus Eugenia Volodina and Inguna Butane after a year away from the show.
Once you get past the army of gorgeous girls, the outfits were completely outrageous and in true V.S style totally and utterly fabulous! The themes for this year were; Blade Runner (futuristic animal prints), Age Of Elegance, Pink (road trip - with outfits from different states), Roman Antiques (pottery print), Surreally Sexy (impressionism art) and Deck the Halls (christmas decorations).
This is just a taste of the show - to get the full experience tune into CBS on December 4th to watch the entire show!
(picture shows the finale)

Also, more girls are added to list of who's in tomorrow's show: Andi Muise, Angela Lndvall, Caroline Winberg, Lindsay Ellingson and Quiana Grant.
And on a rather sadder note, Kanye West has cancelled his performance at the show following the recent death of his mother - it's not know if he'll be replaced but the Spice Girls and Seal are still performing.
Tuesday, 13 November 2007
The girls confirmed for the show so far are as follows: Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Marisa Miller, Selita Ebanks, Miranda Kerr, Izabel Goulart, Jessica White, Oluchi Onweabega, Candice Swanepoel, Marija Vujovic, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Michaela Kocianova and Noemie Lenoir.

Well with halloween being just over a week ago now all the pictures are in of what our models got up to! It's hard to imagine these girls can look scary but with the some of the costumes we had trouble recognising them! Here's just a few of the models and what they wore....
Alessandra Ambrosio (pictured) dressed up as a playboy bunny with her boyfriend as hugh hefner and her sister Aline as an eygiptian!
Daria Werbowy painted her entire body pale white and wore a large white billowy gown.
Behati Prinsloo dressed in her usual tomboy style we love but added a few rather realistic looking injuries to herself!
Andi Muise....some kind of dominatrix! Complete with an unknown male model friend dressed up as a woman.

Heidi Klum; Adriana Lima; Alessandra Ambrosio; Karolina Kurkova; Selita Ebanks; Izabel Goulart; Miranda Kerr; Ana Beatriz Barros; Jessica Stam; Hana Soukupova; Bianca Balti; Emanuela De Paula; Caroline Francischini; Sabrina Jales; Marisa Miller; Natasha Poly; Julia Stegner; Doutzen Kroes.
This is by no means the final list, I suspect Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Heather Marks will be back from last year; along with other regulars Andi Muise, Caroline Trentini, Morgane Dubled and Oluchi Onweabega - and no doubt there will be many more on top of that - only 2 weeks to the show now!
Thursday, 1 November 2007
On Nov. 12, nearly 30 models, including Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Izabel Goulart, Selita Ebanks, Marisa Miller and Miranda Kerr, will arrive in Los Angeles on a special Virgin America flight from New York City for the much anticipated Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which will take place three days later at the Kodak Theatre.
Not only will the plane be branded with the Victoria’s Secret logo, but each of the models will be resting their pretty little heads on custom pillows and wrapping their flawless bodies in matching blankets.
The next day, the models will shut down a part of Hollywood Boulevard when Victoria’s Secret gets its own star in front of the Kodak.

CBS has found a way to flog the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and reward the cast of "How I Met Your Mother" at the same time. The network announced Monday (Oct. 29) that a sextet of Victoria's Secret models will be guest starring on the Nov. 26 episode of "How I Met Your Mother."
Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Marisa Miller and Selita Ebanks will give the Monday night comedy a little end-of-sweeps sex appeal, while also helping CBS flog the Tuesday, Dec. 4 telecast of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, an event that has fallen on ratings hard times in recent installments.
If you don't wanna know how those comely ladies fit in with the regular "HIMYM" cast, stop reading now....
In the episode, Barney is worried he might be losing his mojo until he finagles an invite to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show after-party. Hilarity ensues. The episode will shoot later this week

“They’ve been friends for a long time,” a source tells Us Weekly. “But they only decided to give it a go a few weeks back.” On October 18, Bloom turned out to support the Aussie stunner at the Victoria’s Secret Phi Beta Pink party in Beverly Hills.
An insider tells Us the couple took an amorous jaunt to East Hampton, New York, on October 4 and 5. While at dinner at the 1770 House, they held hands and sipped wine. Gushes the source, “Miranda’s very into him!”

On Friday night at Sweet Paradise on Orchard Street, DiCaprio was with Josh Hartnett checking out the arm candy at the after-party for the new skateboarding film “Nothing But the Truth.” And, in an odd twist, Refaeli’s new squeeze is surfer Kelly Slater, who dated Bundchen after she and the “Titanic” star broke up.
Slater got into some trouble over the weekend in Israel when he and Refaeli exited a hotel in the Tel Aviv suburb of Herzliya before dawn to find photographers waiting for them. He was arrested after fighting with local paparazzi.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told The AP that in an effort to prevent the cameramen from taking pictures, Slater pushed them. A brawl broke out, and Slater was taken in for questioning and later released, Rosenfeld said.

Though the children weren't completely familiar with Coco, the model captivated them as she does the fashion industry: they proceeded to scream her name immediately after they were introduced. A dancer since the age of five, the model spent the afternoon learning the steps to an hour long performance just to bring entertainment to the children. And afterwards, the dancers brought the kids to the stage, teaching them a few steps, which the kids quickly interpreted with their own forms of dance.
"It makes it easy to be on the runway," Rocha explained of her transition from dancing to modeling. "It's all about putting on an attitude. I had to learn to perform in the sense that it's just playing around up there. Photographers can tell who was a dancer and who wasn't. Walking is just so 'plain Jane.' I put on the runway attitude, but shows like John Galliano's, where you can sit on someone's lap if you like, are just so fun."
As far as Irish dancing costumes are concerned, Rocha laughed. "It's not à la mode, but it's tradition and that's really what Irish dancing is about. You can say they're tacky, but it's the tradition of years ago when this was a form of entertainment. People would just get up and dance."
Too bad this isn't a university reality. If schools had models and socialites that looked like this running around campus, every kid in America would probably be in college.
Gisele has done many things in her time; including acting in the movie Taxi, taking part in a commercial for Apple Mac and shooting an ad for the american express red card....and according to brazilian gossip blog Glamurama Gisele has now begun working for Disney, following in the footsteps of David Beckham, Beyoncé and Scarlett Johansson.
It is reported that Gisele plays the role of Wendy in the studios latest campaign, featuring Wendy and Peter Pan plus the history of Never Never Land. Peter is played by dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and the campaign is shot by Annie Leibowitz.

Orlando Bloom has reportedly been spending this past weekend romancing Australian model Miranda Kerr - which has fueled speculation that the the pair are dating.
In April this year, Orlando was seen house-hunting (they weren't actually together) and took Miranda on a double-date at exclusive Asian restaurant Megu, in New York, over the weekend.
According to the Sunday Telegraph newspaper (Australia) the pair were apparently “smitten” with each other. An onlooker said: “They looked really happy together, and spent most of the evening cuddling and touching each other. They definitely looked like a couple.”
The pair have previously denied they were a couple, with Miranda saying: “Orlando is a nice guy but we’re just friends. We actually ran into each other by coincidence and then someone took a photo, turning a molehill into a mountain.”
Orlando has also recently been linked to former ‘Friends’ actress Jennifer Aniston, but denied they were anything more than “just good friends”.

“Selita and Nick are taking a break to focus on their careers but still very much love each other and remain the best of friends,” says her rep, Melissa Raubvogel.
Cannon’s rep declined to comment. The break comes just five short months after the couple got engaged when Nick literally lit up Times Sqaure to propose to Ebanks with the help of a jumbotron.

Actors breezed in and out the Whiski bar as they showed off the clothing store's winter party dresses. The commercial will be the second in a series that depicts a blossoming romance between Ale, played by South American supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, and Paul Sculfor, the real-life boyfriend of Jennifer Aniston.
They have been filming in Edinburgh all week, with the couple pictured laughing and joking while walking along the cobbled streets of the Royal Mile. It follows the airing on Friday of the first installment of the series, during which the couple met in London.
The Edinburgh Christmas scenes show them on their first proper date together. It's hoped their chemistry will remind people of the Gold Blend coffee adverts. A spokesman said: "It's a story, cut up into two pieces that will entertain as well as convey the brand image."

If you're Alessandra Ambrosio, the face of Victoria's Secret and star of Next's new TV ads, you get someone to speak nicely to Harvey Nichols' personal shopping manager and get the store open after hours.
Stunned security guards stood aside as the Brazilian babe dashed in on Monday with Jennifer Aniston's on-off squeeze, Paul Sculfor, and grabbed all the Chloe and Stella McCartney a girl could carry.
Now THAT is a supermodel. God I love her!

This week she took a lot of lessons to be ready for her examination. Before she started she took off her red high heeled pumps for flat shoes. She tried to keep her mouth shut during the exam, “I’ve tried to shut my mouth cause during the lessons I’ve said all the things that went wrong out loud” says Doutzen.
But nothing went wrong during the exam says examiner Erik Wesseluis. Doutzen will return soon to NY, where she has jobs for to do Vogue magazine.
Doutzen won’t drive in NY, she doesn’t have a car yet! And the traffic is much more hectic and it’s hard to find a place to park the car. For experience she will once in a while return to Friesland.
Once she has experience she wants to drive with some girlfriends across America, from NY to LA (which is about 4500 KM).

Modeling for eleven years, she's one of the most known tops in the fashion world. She was chosen the sexiest woman in the world by the Italian GQ, and the world's most beautiful by the Americans.
She was also the first Brazilian to be in the lingerie brand Victoria's Secret's team, in 1999, followed by Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima.
According to her, the secret to success is to be smart and have personality. "I'm easy to deal with, I don't play the superstar part. Do you know why Kate Moss is considered the best model in the world? Because she's professional, arrives in time, she's simple", she states.
Despite loving her career, she says she plans to assure her old age far from the runways. "My goal is, in some years, to open at Brazil a dermathology clinic with Maria Luiza, with Patricia (her sisters) and a cousin. We get along really well, I love my sisters", she says.
She also doesn't hide the dream of getting married and being a mother, but she says it's difficul to find an understanding partner. "Not every man in the world understands a woman who makes her own money, travels all over the world. I'll not leave my work for a man. I've been raised like this, I don't like to stay still and I love what I do".
We say, GO ANA!

Also, american model Marisa Miller, a long time favourite in the VS catalogs and regular Sports Illustrated fixture ,will make her debut at the VSFS this year.
Tuesday, 21 August 2007
The 20-year-old has been called the next Kate Moss and dubbed a leading member of the so-called "artist-rockracy" for dating the son of Rolling Stones' guitarist Ronnie Wood.
And according to Chris Gay, spokesman for Women New York, Rosie's career is going from strength to strength. "I would say Rosie is one of the top UK models working today and one of the top earners."
"She has moved to New York and is highly respected in the industry for her attitude. She does do catwalk but most of her work is in print where she is very successful."
Rosie recently did a shoot for Victoria's Secret and Clinique which is a major fragrance.
Rosie's success has taken her all over the world and is a far cry from her upbringing in Devon where she was a student at Tavistock College. Her career started when she was spotted by London-based agency Profile which took her on at the age of 16.
Although she is not yet in the same earning bracket as Kate Moss who reportedly takes around £4 million a year, Rosie can now command tens of thousands of pounds for each assignment.
Her relationship with Tyrone Wood, the 23-year-old son of Ronnie, was the subject of tabloid speculation this week after the pair spent a week at a luxury villa in Ibiza. According to reports in the Daily Mail the £13,500-a-week hotel was burgled and possessions belonging to the pair were stolen.

Gisele Bundchen is set to star in the u2's next music video after becoming friends with frontman Bono. The pair met when Gisele appeared in ads for Bono's RED charity campaign for no fee.
Gisele is one of the highest paid supermodels in the fashion industry and is notoriously picky about the jobs she does. However she is no stranger to the film set after appearing in the 2004 film Taxi and she's just signed up to star in the film version on Dan Brown's bestselling Angels and Demons.
Gisele caused outrage when she publicly criticised the Roman Catholic Church for its "outdated" view on contraception last month. The Brazilian supermodel - who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio - believes the church should change its views because "no one is a virgin" anymore and contraception is necessary to stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

Suspiscion is that Moynahan planned the birth to purposefully be on Gisele's birthday and also that she announced the pregnancy without Tom knowing while he was away in Paris with Gisele to make him look bad!
The tension has grown so intense that the couple fought openly in front of hotel guests in Napa while staying at the five star Auberge du Soliel.
