Agent Provocateur’s campaign videos don’t get hundreds of thousands of views for their artistic value alone. Particularly not when Penelope Cruz and Irina Shayk are involved. But it’s nice to know that under all the sexy stuff there’s a loose plot, some beautiful cinematography and maybe a bit of awkward humor.
We love Victoria’s Secret as much as the next person, but sometimes it’s nice to see lingerie without pinwheels, feather-covered babies, or NSFW videos. That’s why this lookbook for Stella McCartney’s fall/winter lingerie line is so incredible: it’s simple.
A Marie Antoinette tea room filled with pretty frosted cakes and decadent pastries by Sébastian Gaudard? Sounds like the pop-up store of your childhood dreams. But keep your inner kid’s eyes STRICTLY ON THE FOOD because this is also where ex-prostitute Zahia Dehar is launching her new line of fluffy pink g-strings and silicone nipple pasties.
If silk and lace is just a notch too pedestrian for you, we finally have the solution to your underwear woes: 24 karat gold lingerie.
Miranda Kerr’s supplies of lingerie must be something in the ballpark of unlimited, but that probably didn’t make it any less disturbing when stores of it were swiped from her Hollywood abode. The perps? The real-life Bling Ring, the group of Valley teenagers who made major headlines back in 2009 for stealing millions of dollars worth of clothing and jewelry from celebrities homes, and are again in the public imagination thanks to an eponymous film by Sofia Coppola with a cast including Emma Watson, slated to hit theaters in June.
In the spirit of major retailers capitalizing on social issues to drive sales — like this weekend’s gay marriage video that Nordstrom put out — British lingerie retailer Blush has released a promo clip in support of the members of the Russian band Pussy Riot who have been sentenced to labor camps.
If anyone should be a master of the art of seduction, it’s the man behind some of the most elegant, provocative, and covetable lingerie money can buy. Yes, we’re talking about La Perla, and at last night’s presentation of the label’s fall 2013 collection, we spoke with creative director Giovanni Bianchi about the story behind his newest selection of underpinnings and what he thinks is the ideal lacy little gift for Valentine’s Day. His answer might surprise you.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Agent Provocateur has released a sexy new brand video featuring Poppy Delevingne.
You might remember Aussie plus-size model Robyn Lawley from that captivating cover of Vogue Italia and from Vogue Australia’s first-ever plus-size spread. Now, her out-of-this world curves have landed her in a campaign for British lingerie brand Boux Avenue.
Born into France’s high court of fashion (her mother being former editor in chief of French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld and her father designer Christian Restoin), Julia Restoin-Roitfeld grew up around the tastemakers and gamechangers of the entire fashion industry. A graduate of Parsons Paris School of Art and Design, Restoin-Roitfeld has created her own vision of the glamorous world she grew up in through the lens of photography and design. Today she’s taken on a couple new roles that Grazia explored through a recent interview, which became the inspiration for our Top 5 List. Without further ado, the Top 5 Reasons Why We’re Jealous of Julia Restoin-Roitfeld.
Here’s a picture of Zahia Dehar, a girl we’re going to start referring to as France’s answer to Kim Kardashian. How else would you describe a young woman who became famous and got her own fashion line only after having sex with not just one but three of that nation’s top athletes?
It was a disco dream come true Monday night when Etam, the French lingerie company known for its outrageous publicity stunts and slinky, lacy underwear, got every notable diva of the 1970s to sing on its runway. Gloria Gaynor. Chaka Khan. Kathy Sledge. They were all there! And so was Grace Jones, who opened the show late with a stirring rendition of La Vie En Rose after getting lost backstage.
We tend to get annoyed by celebrity clothing lines, but somehow the collection that Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is working on isn’t odious so much as it is very, very sexy.
A new decree from Saudi Arabia’s Labor Ministry is putting an end to decades of embarrassing transactions at lingerie stores. As soon as it’s implemented, men won’t be allowed to handle sizing and sales at the country’s various answers to Victoria’s Secret.
No, really. This is a clap-off bra, the invention of, we’re guessing, some guy who was so frustrated with the struggle to undo the eyelet hooks that secure women’s undergarments that he just couldn’t take it anymore.
Every November Victoria’s Secret puts on their annual
T&A fashion show, and every year we keep close tabs on the crazy winged creations the company comes up with. They’ve been shaped like bows and snowflakes! They’ve been made out of flowers and balloons! An angel’s wings are a big deal! Izabel Goulart reportedly cried when she got fitted for hers.
Panties come in all shapes, sizes, colors, fabrics — you name it, it exists. And while we enjoy the occasional foray into creative undergarmentry, we simply cannot endorse magnetic lingerie. We just can’t.
So, do you have to be a mother to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel? Signs, more or less, point to yes.
Sorry if we’re confused — is there a rumor floating around that Usher wants to make underwear? Women’s lingerie? With Tamara Mellon? Jimmy Choo‘s Tamara Mellon? What?
It’s barbecue season everyone! Finally we can strip our pesky layers and wear something a little smaller, a little lighter, and definitely a little sexier for all those afternoon parties. So as we dare to go bare, we might only have to look as far as our pajama drawer for some outfit worthy selections. The [...]
