Miranda Kerr Lands Swarovski Gig

What do you do when you quite literally have it all? If your Aussie model Miranda Kerr, you sign up to be the new face of Swarovski this fall. Duh.

As if being a top-notch Victoria’s Secret angel, having a husband named Orlando Bloom and an adorable son named Flynn isn’t enough happiness in your life, surely a little Swarovski sparkle will do the trick. Can’t we all be so lucky?

According to a press release, the creative director Ronnie Cooke Newhouse said, “Mix Miranda Kerr with home-grown English garden roses, Swarovski jewelery, Nick Knight photography, original Pharrell Williams music and you get beauty, warmth, coolness and desirability. Things we love.” We couldn’t agree more. The campaign was shot by British photographer Nick Knight.

Past faces of Swarovski include Candice Swanepoel, Lily Donaldson, Katie Fogarty and Berenice Marlohe.

The ads, scheduled to start in november, will run in 25 countries with commercials in Italy, France and Hong Kong (but you can find anything on the internet, gentlemen).

For your own sparkling Swarovski moment, check out our stash of jewelry crafted with the sparkling stones right here and save 40% with code 40SWAROV! Running through an English rose garden while listening to Pharrell, you’re on your own for that though.

Oh, did we mention she also grabbed the number 2 spot on Forbes list of highest paid models?

There’s been a celebrity engagement ring dry spell so far this summer until (drumroll….) this week two heavy hitters announced they’re officially off the market: Fashion Police‘s purple-haired pixie, Kelly Osbourne, is engaged to vegan chef boyfriend, Mathew Mosshart, and (sorry, ladies) Maroon 5‘s Adam Levine proposed to his Victoria’s Secret-model girlfriend, Behati Prinsloo.

Kelly Osbourne, no fashion wall-flower, designed her own engagement ring to match an earring worn by her rocker father, Ozzy.

“I designed it to look like an earring that my father wore,” she gushed to Hello! Magazine. “I used to hold my finger up to his ear when I was little and say, ‘I want a ring like that.’ Now I have one!”

And just when you think Adam Levine is going to go for the stereotypical solitaire to match his stereotypical choice in soul mate? He throws us a curve ball by offering up a stunning vintage sparkler from the 1930s.

Says Prinsloo of her ring finger bling to Extra!,

“It’s from the 1930s. I was very giddy. I was speechless. It was a beautiful moment.”

It’s hard for me to find the right words to describe how I’m feeling about your good fortune, Behati.

I WILL say that Adam Levine is on to something: Vintage jewelry is still trending after over a year on the hit list.  Check out the Very Vintage Collection I curated on Jewelry.com, which has some vintage-inspired rocks on the block that will take the sting out of yet another Victoria’s Secret model having all the fun.

This vintage-inspired 1/3 Carat Diamond Flower Ring in 10K Gold doesn’t come with a Maroon 5 frontman, but it also doesn’t judge your singing voice and expect you to wear wings down a runway in your skivvies. AND you can drop the price from $1,279 to $299 with code PREMIER at checkout (shhhhhhh!). Celebrate!

What do you guys think of the celebrity rocks? Weigh in!

Victoria’s Secret Is A Diamond Bombshell

Ah, Victoria. That pesky lingerie mass marketer whose ‘secret’ is to lure us into buying overpriced skivvies by parading around those insipid angels is at it again.

This time, they’re putting the impossibly beautiful Adriana Lima in their Bombshell Fantasy Bra – a cross-your-heart creation made out of 2,000 diamonds in a star-burst design. With a price tag of $3 million, it isn’t the most expensive Fantasy Bra in their coffers (Gisele Bundchen wore a $12.5 million cup holder a few years back), but it will certainly make heads turn and wallets burn.

Ms. Lima’s ‘ice chest’ will make its sparkling debut at the Victoria’s Secret 2011 Fashion Show, which airs November 30th on CBS.

One angel who will be noticeably absent this year is Heidi Klum, who ‘retired her wings’ with the company earlier this month.

One day you’re ‘in’? And the next? You’re free to eat again.

Diamonds never strutted like this before! This weekend, Miami played host to the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and the glittering angels didn’t disappoint.

Thirty-five supermodels walked 64 slinky selections down the runway in the recently renovated Fontainebleau Hotel. R & B singer, Usher, started the show followed by the leggy Adriana Lima, who wore the famous $5 million black diamond Fantasy Bra.

Designed by Martin Katz, the ultimate in luxury lingerie is set with 3,575 black diamonds, 117 certified one-carat white round diamonds and 34 rubies. If that weren’t enough, two huge black diamond drops weighing in at 50 carats each swing down from the center.

Adriana Lima, on wearing the bra, said,

“I always wanted to wear the Fantasy Bra. It’s the first time that Victoria’s Secret makes a black diamond bra. A woman could definitely buy it if they love it – and men, too.”

But the night’s show stopper wasn’t the most expensive C cup to see the light of day, it was Heidi Klum in a pink and red winged get-up that truly ruled the runway. Decorated with what appear to be diamond and gold jeweled accessories, the phoenix-esque Klum looked stunning as she strutted her stuff for the grand finale.

Celebrities appearing on the Victoria’s Secret pink carpet included Paris Hilton, P Diddy, Russell Simmons, Michelle Trachtenberg, Kim Kardashian and perhaps the only one who can truly afford the black diamond fantasy bra, one Martha Stewart.

CBS will Bra-dcast the show in its glittering entirety on December 3rd.

If you needed more proof that black diamonds are the new ‘it’ girl in the jewelry world, look no further. Victoria’s Secret unveiled their new Fantasy Bra, and the C cup beauty is loaded with ‘em.

The Black Diamond Fantasy Bra was created by celebrity jeweler, Martin Katz, and is set with 3,575 black diamonds, 117 certified one-carat white round diamonds and 34 rubies. If that weren’t enough, two huge black diamond drops weighing in at 50 carats each swing down from the center.

Supermodel, Adriana Lima, wears the black diamond beauty in the Victoria Secret ad campaign (they aren’t lying when they say the thing is designed for maximum cleavage enhancement).

And, hey, if you want to find a little luxury lingerie under the tree this year, you’ll only have to shell out a mere 5 mil.

Not bad for 1500 carats that will never see the light of day.
