Home / Barely News: German Farm Girls, VSFS Update, and Irina’s New Job
600x74 Bridal Guide

An Idea For Your Next 4-H Fundraiser?
Here’s an image that has October written all over it. A hunting dog, Oktoberfest lederhosen … and a bra and buckled heels?

No, it’s not unseasonably warm in the Black Forest this year. It’s just an image from a goofy German lingerie calendar showing underdressed farm girls in all manner of rustic, erotically-charged barnyard settings … such as shearing sheep, fixing a tractor and milking cows.

Don’t get it? Must be a cultural thing. The Deutsche Bauernkalender is actually a pretty big deal in der faderland — in fact, there’s a rival publication called the Bavarian Farm Girls calendar.

We can’t wait to see what they do with a swimsuit edition.

Katy Slated For VSFS
The Barely News team was on holiday last week so we’ve got lots to catch up on. This week, we’ll let the pictures do the talking for us.

Like this one of songbird Katy Perry, who has the cover and a photo spread in next month’s Cosmo.

And that’s not all. After getting booted from Sesame Street two weeks ago, Katy has landed a new TV gig that’s a bit more in line with her bombshell image: performing on the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Set your Tivos for Nov. 30 at 10 p.m.

Modeling For Dummies
You knew this would happen eventually. Who needs all those high-priced, high-maintenance supermodels, when you can just use department store mannequins for your magazine editorial spreads?

Like Vogue Italia has done here with its October 2010 edition featuring a mannequin dressed up for some sexy, stylish office scenes.

Oh, wait a minute. That’s actually model Charlotte Di Calypso, convincingly shot by Miles Aldridge.

Never mind.

Gisele Under Wraps
Fans of Gisele Bundchen will want to check out the latest edition of Vogue Brazil, which features the Brasilian beauty modeling a number of high-end corsets.

Gisele also made the list this week of Forbes Magazine’s 100 Most Powerful Women. The world’s highest-paid model placed #72, well behind Heidi Klum (39) and Anna Wintour (56) but ahead of Vera Wang (91) and Donna Karan (96).

That’s ‘Ambassador’ Shayk To You Mortals
Russian supermodel Irina Shayk got a new job this week, though we’re not sure what it means.

The SI swimsuit model, among other things, was named brand ambassador for Intimissimi lingerie.

The Italian luxury label recently began using Bianca Balti for its campaign images, but Irina has been associated with the label since as far back as 2007. We’re sure there’s enough work to go around for both beauties.

An Early Holiday Gift
And finally this week, an early Christmas present from Victoria’s Secret, which will ship its annual holiday catalogue to millions of fans in about 2 weeks.

As a preview for the holiday book, VS released a collection of saucy images featuring cutie Miranda Kerr, who is now off on the fashion world’s most closely-followed maternity leave.

These shots were obviously taken a few months ago, pre-baby bump. Now that’s planned parenthood!
