We all know what Camille Paglia thinks of Lady Gaga these days — but I wonder what the feminist author would think of Ines Sainz?
In case you missed it, Ms Sainz and her pictures have been everywhere the past few days, as the gossip and chat shows feast on the ‘Lockergate’ scandal that made Sainz and the New York Jets front-page news. “Ines Sainz” was the most searched phrase on Google yesterday, followed closely by “Ines Sainz pictures” — indicating only that American football fans are diligently researching the subject before offering opinions.
Sainz is the sports reporter for Mexican channel TV Azteca who complained about being the object of “inappropriate” comments and behavior from Jets players on the weekend after entering the team locker room while reporting on a story. Reports indicate players began “hooting and hollering” when Sainz entered their sweaty inner sanctum.
Since then, and between media appearances, Sainz has accepted an apology from Jets owner Woody Johnson and says she has no plans to sue the team.
We’ll let the brainiacs over at Fox News drool over this story, but we thought it would be instructive to show these pictures of Ines Sainz so readers can get a sense of context here.
Sainz, of course, isn’t just a sports reporter — at least not one of those Walter Matthau-like trolls who typically swarm the free buffet in the press box.
The Spanish hottie is also a widely-known swimsuit model and favorite of men’s magazines in Latin America, where these images originated, and clearly isn’t shy about using her looks to her own advantage. One article recently labelled her “the world’s hottest sports reporter.”
Did Sainz engineer this weekend’s fuss to boost her own profile in the media spotlight? Or was she an innocent victim/object of inexcusably crude meatheads? We’re mum on the issue. You decide.
Exciting news for expecting or recent yummy mummys! Elle Macpherson Intimates has released new styles for ts maternity range combining superior comfort with Elle’s signature feminine aesthetic.
Considering Elle herself is a busy mama to two boys, she knows a thing or two about being pregnant, “My own experiences of pregnancy and motherhood inspired me to design maternity lingerie,” she said. “I could see there was a real opportunity to design a maternity collection that was as beautiful as it was functional.”
Released in 2005, the Elle Macpherson maternity collection includes basics which are available every season (Momamia, Maternelle and La Mere), as well as fashion styles that fade out after every season.
So, if you were completely enamored with Elle’s colorful F/W collection, you’ll be utterly delighted with the beautiful maternity styles now available.
Choose from a soft lace cup bra with contrast lining, like Becoming Daylight (also offered in a soft nude and available from a D-G cup size!), or the gorgeous vintage-esque satin and lace style in antique blue, aptly named Too Precious, which is offered in a D-DD cup size.
Two everyday styles include Momamia, a slinky pink striped bra with playful polka-dot lining (available in C-G cup) and Light of Moon, a molded cup covered and lined in soft cotton with lace back and lace trim detail (also offered in soft nude and available in D-DD cup size).
Also available are two black styles with drop-cup nursing features: La Mere, a sultry lace style and Maternelle, a full-coverage bra suitable for everyday wear.
Not only do Elle’s maternity styles make a great gift to a glowing mom-to-be, but you can also treat yourself to a well-needed indulgence!
Some of the new pieces are shown below.
Elle Macpherson lingerie can be found at fine department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, or online at barenecessities.com. You can also visit ellemacphersonintimates.com to locate a stockist nearest you.
Marlies Dekkers sure knows how to throw a lively party — even if the crowd includes a few undead guests.
The Dutch lingerie designer hosted her first Victorian Vampire Night in Amsterdam on Saturday, a combination runway show and costume party to unveil her Fall 2010 lingerie collection.
The evening featured models trolling glumly along the catwalk with hands and lips dripping blood, carrying crucifixes and wearing thorn garlands in their hair.
The unique presentation was Dekkers’ way of drawing attention to the Victorian themes in her dramatic fall line. She’ll host a second Victorian Vampire Night next weekend.
After the show, it was reported the partygoers retired to MD’s place to catch the True Blood season-ender — and mock its many subtle inaccuracies.
A little while ago we unveiled the flirty collection from Mimi Holliday, and if you’ve been wondering what big sis line Damaris has created for fall — well, wait no more!
You might remember the preview images we showcased from the highly anticipated Damaris collection, and now they are finally available online with the addition of two never-before-seen styles.
If I had to sum up the label’s collection in just one word it would be S-U-B-L-I-M-E. Damaris lingerie is the epitome of luxury.
With style names like Risqué, Noir de Nuit, Splendide and Désire de Nuit, it’s difficult not to feel like a seductive femme fatale in one of these creations.
Damaris’ autumn/winter collection embodies the glamorous and rich fall fashion trends. Désire de Nuit, for instance, combines velvet Swarovski-encrusted straps (right) that support delicate indigo Chantilly floral lace cups. It is the perfect style for the feminine woman with a tough edge.
Also right on cue is the intricate showstopper, the Noir de Nuit set. Fabricated from matte-silk combinations of four different types of jet-black delicate Leavers lace, including the new swirly lace and new flock polka dot lace, as well as French silk tulle, the result is a monochromatic ensemble that marries texture and graphics. Similar in style is the Risqué set in the photo above: a cheeky (literally) lace design for those looking to flaunt their assets.
Of course, no autumn collection would be complete without a sultry scarlet style. Damaris injects the dark and seductive collection with Splendide, a bright pomegranate lace and matte-silk range that will instantly cure those winter blues. Pair the soft-cup bra with either the vintage-esque high-waist briefs or festive bow-back thong.
Nouvelle Amour is by far the most delicate floral lace range, with black satin trim that will make jaws drop to the floor — seriously. Pair the peep-back bodysuit or bra and matching brief with a crimson lip and dangerous stiletto, and you have a recipe to knock ‘em dead, or, speechless at least.
Another new style is the sensual, cool-hued Sincéreté — the ideal set to wear on a long snowy night. The signature soft-cup bra is created from luminous silver lace and matte silk, and features straps adorned with delicate crystal embellishment.
Okay, so as if I haven’t tempted you enough, the images below will surely induce a lust-worthy obsession.
Damaris lingerie can be found at fine boutiques worldwide, in the U.S., and online at net-a-porter.com.
Actress-temptress Megan Fox is getting ready to sell some underwear this fall, after resurfacing in a couple of well-timed appearances for Emporio Armani.
First, the Transformers beauty showed up yesterday an one of four cover girls for the new Elle magazine (above), which is marking its own 25th anniversary by profiling young celebrities who also turn 25 this year.
Then today, Megan appears in a teaser video released by Armani, called The Tip. It’s only 22 seconds long, and it shows the lingerie-clad star greeting a lucky hotel room-service waiter. No indication of what kind of “tip” the lad receives, but use your imagination!
There’s a similar mini-vid out featuring men’s underwear spokesboy Cristiano Ronaldo, who likewise gives a hotel maid something to blush about.
Watch for more from both Megan and CR as Emporio Armani rolls out its fall jeans line and underwear collections in the next week or so.
