Victoria's Secret Hopes You Will Go to the Gym in This Push-Up Bra


Victoria’s Secret wants you to work out in a push-up halter it calls the “Showtime Sport Bra.” As bras go, this one is long on the “show” and short on the “sport.” It has underwire and “push-up padding for lift & cleavage.” VS grades it only “medium support.” Sounds comfortable! Someone give this to Amanda Bynes. Never forget that as a woman it is your duty to look sexy and club-ready with boobs hiked firmly up to your chin at all times — even when sweating on the elliptical machine or the bench press.

Jennifer Lopez joined Karl Lagerfeld on the German talk show Wetten, Das…? and awkwardly brought up the fact that Chanel had only loaned — not given — her daughter a sparkly Chanel logo pin that the 4-year-old wore to the Chanel show last week. (Little Emme still went home with a white Chanel handbag for her trouble.) “Lent?” said Lagerfeld. “They took it back? Oh, that’s horrible!” [YouTube]
Then, on French television, Lagerfeld had to stand by awkwardly while a comedian put on a cat suit (that looked more like a panda costume) and called himself “Chat Lagerfeld.” [The Cut]

Nicole Kidman is on the cover of the new Harper’s Bazaar. She says that when she dresses for red-carpet events, “I make sure to wear comfortable dresses, because I want to be able to go out afterward and, you know, bend.” The chartreuse Christian Dior dress she wore to the Oscars in 1997 is still in her possession. “It’s packed in a box with tissue paper, and it will be donated to a museum,” says the actress. And she has a closet full of other couture and designer pieces. “Whichever daughter loves clothes more will get dibs on all those. But I keep them in the same way that I’d keep a painting.” Kidman also says that one unanticipated benefit of aging is that at least she gets the dread tabloid BABY OR BURRITO?!?! arrow less frequently now. “I’ve always had a little belly. I mean, now that I’m 45, they don’t say, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant!’ as much.” [Harper’s Bazaar]

Susie Bubble very delicately asks Donatella Versace what she thinks of people who think Versace is “tacky” in this video. “Tacky, never mind,” says Versace. “What is tacky? What is chic?” [Vimeo]

Stella Rose St. Claire — one of the “real people” shot by Lanvin for its fall campaign — caught the eye of Fashionista’s street-style photographer. Look at her nails! [Fashionista]

  • Jennifer Lawrence nabbed a fashion campaign. She will be the next face of Miss Dior handbags, a role previously filled by Mila Kunis. [WWD]
  • Balenciaga’s little experiment in crowd-sourced questions for Kristen Stewart has one amusing effect: even the rejected fan-submitted questions are publicly visible, meaning people can see a) exactly how sanitized Stewart and Balenciaga’s peeps are making the proceedings and b) that people really, really want to ask the actress stuff about “Krisbians” (straight women who would “go gay” for her) and:

  • Alexa Chung says the book she’s writing will be a little bit in the vein of Rookie, which recently released its first book:
  • “It’s basically a compendium of drawings, photographs and I’m going to write about a bunch of stuff. It’s not like a “style bible”, which I keep reading it being reported as. It’s more like just imagery I find interesting and it’s going to have a sense of humor and I guess more into the things that Rookie has done. I don’t really know yet. I haven’t written it yet.”
