Angel Airways Coming Our Way

Virgin America, the next generation airline today announced that it will partner with Victoria's Secret as the official "Airline of the Angels" for the 2007 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. On Nov. 12, one of Virgin America's brand new planes will be named in honor of Victoria's Secret and will fly 27 Victoria's Secret supermodels from New York to Los Angeles for the lingerie giant's annual fashion show.

This is a partnership made in heaven: some of the most beautiful women in the world flying one of the sexiest planes in the skies," said Charles Ogilvie, Director of Inflight Entertainment and Partnerships at Virgin America. "We can't wait for the supermodels to practice for their runway show in the aisles under our mood-lighting, chat with each other via our instant message system, grab a drink from the mini-bar or watch one of our 25 movies on demand inflight."

After touching down in Los Angeles on Nov. 12, the Victoria's Secret Angels will name their own Virgin America plane and officially kick off this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show with a press conference on the tarmac at Los Angeles International Airport. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will tape at the Kodak Theater on Nov. 15 and will be broadcast Tuesday, Dec. 4 (10:00 PM ET/PT), on the CBS television network.

As the official "Airline of the Angels," Virgin America and Victoria's Secret will also host the first ever in-flight supermodel PJ party on a Virgin America flight from New York to Los Angeles this November. Lucky guests will get to fly in style with the Victoria's Secret supermodels and check out the latest VS PJ fashions at 35,000 feet. The in-flight PJ party will be one of three exclusive PJ parties hosted by Victoria's Secret this holiday season.

Life Looks Rosie For Tyrone....

Following an article in August containing details of the couples rumoured romance and eventful holiday to Ibiza, it appears British catwalk fixture Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Tyrone Wood, son of Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, are actually an item! The most recent photo is shown here on September 20th, at the Stella McCartney for adidas presentation as part of London Fashion Week.

They attended Ronnie's 'Woodfest' costume party on August 24th at the family house, both dressed as gypsies!....I hope these guys stay together for a while - they're SO cute!

Adriana Is Back!

We haven't seen much from this Brazilian wonder for a while so I thought I'd give you a quick glimpse of her working the Hollywood starlet look, with her new darkened locks, at GQ Magazine's 50th Anniversary party....

Although she's not been in the press much lately, it seems Adriana has been working hard behind the scenes. She recently shot for Vanity Fair with other Victoria's Secret Angels, and it is thought she could take a lead role as the company's 'Sexy Santa' this year, a role previously held by Alessandra Ambrosio and Gisele Bundchen. She will also film the 2007 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on November 15th with a host of other catlwalk beauties.
In her personal life, it is believed Adriana could be dating Prince Wence of Lichtenstein again after they broke up late last year - although they were last seen together again in May this year.

Alessandra Shoots Second UK Commercial

Fake snow and a Christmas tree decorated the outside of a Royal Mile pub today as TV cameras rolled for the filming of a new UK-wide Next advert.

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."

Shopping....With Style!

WHAT'S a supermodel to do if she arrives in Edinburgh but her luggage doesn't?

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!

A Model Diet!

You don't get to look this good by eating junk food, so it was no surprise to see Miranda Kerr lunching at an organic food cafe in Bondi Junction yesterday.

After a busy two months gallavanting around the world the New York-based model has been enjoying some much-needed downtime since arriving in town on Monday. As well as catching up on some beauty treatments and shopping, she and her mum Therese enjoyed a quiet meal at Macro Wholefoods Market.

But it's now back to the grind, with the one-time Gunnedah girl busy shooting a Portmans TV commercial until she jets out again on Sunday. But it's not all work. Kerr will also be the VIP guest at a Cleo mag cocktail party at Kings Cross nightspot Hugo's tomorrow night where - in the absence of muso boyfriend Jay Lyon - her mum will again be her date.

Alessandra Out On The Town

We haven't seen this girl for a while, not since her behind car antics back in July, so I thought you'd appriciate I quick update on her! She was out at the Prada Epicenter Party in NYC on Friday night wearing a silver satin dress....other models also at the party were Jessica Hart, Petra Nemcova, Anouck Lepere, Julia Stenger and Hana Soukupova.

Also, while I'm at it, a quick update on Alé's schedule! She's just been in Hawaii shooting with VS for a tv show (airing later this year), she's currently in NYC to shoot for Vanity Fair with the other VS Angels and soon she will visit London; followed by New York, Mexico, Scotland, Miami, LA and NYC....taking her up to October!

New York Fashion Week

We are just over half way through New York Fashion Week, the first of 4 main fashion weeks (NYC to be followed by London, Milan and Paris) in the Spring/Summer 2008 season.

So far we have seen models struting their stuff at shows such as Proenza Schouler, Ralph Lauren, Rosa Cha and Alexander Wang, plus a full host of after parties and promotional events.

One of the most popular events for models so far has been the Calvin Klein Underwear 25th anniversary party, attended by catwalk beauties Miranda Kerr, Natasha Poly, Suvi Koponen, Behati Prinsloo, Angela Lindvall, Liya Kebede, Agyness Deyn, Hana Soukupova, Jessica Miller, Irina Lazareanu, Eugenia Volodina, Doutzen Kroes, Julia Stegner, Raquel Zimmerman, Jessica Stam and Isabeli Fontana, to name a few.

Also polular was the Fashion Rocks concert, where countless stars partied alongside catwalk stunners such as Andi Muise, Tyra Banks and Lydia Hearst. The Missoni party in honour of celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe's latest book was similarly packed full of model beauty.

Do you think they'll still be partying like this by the end of Paris? We think so!

Douzten Passes Her Test!

Top model Doutzen Kroes passed her test yesterday to gain her driving licence. The international model lives in New York, but made the choice to take driving lessons in the much calmer Leeuwarden in her home country of Denmark.

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).
