…The Lexus LFA is a supermodel?

Sometimes advertising is easy.

Like when you combine a bright yellow Lexus LFA supercar with the bright yellow swimsuit’ed supermodel Rianne ten Haken, and let one drift around the other.

Yup; easy.

…Models don’t always look like models?


I’ve always been fascinated with the world of fashion and how it shapes and molds our sense of beauty, so it’s great to see the work of artists like Greg Kessler, who photographs models before and after the makeup artist gets them ready for the runway.

Like Dove’s True Beauty Campaign, it gives a fantastically honest look at what these people actually look like, and shows that even the supermodels can’t look like what they look like on the runway.

…Bar Refaeli is the 2009 Swimsuit Edition cover model?

Bar Refaeli

Hot on the heels of Marisa Miller’s appearance, Bar Refaeli has been given the honor of gracing the cover of the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

As expected, this year’s issue packs quite a few girls in, but not a lot of bikini, and Danica Patrick even makes an appearance to further remove herself from the sport that she’s supposed to be good at.

…The Fantasy Bra from Victoria’s Secret is not cheap?

Adriana Lima Fantasy Bra

The Fantasy Bra is a Victoria’s Secret tradition, and this year, they’ve encrusted supermodel Adriana Lima’s bra with nearly 3,900 precious gems, including thousands of tiny black diamonds, 117 one-carat round diamonds, and 34 rubies. Then, they finished it off with a pair of 100-carat black diamond drops.

The Black Diamond Miracle Bra is also designed to give maximum cleavage lift, but I doubt anyone will notice once they consider the price tag that this bosom booster comes with: A little over $5 million.

…Gisele Bundchen doesn’t like the dollar?

Gisele Bundchen

In what is surely a sign of the times, Gisele Bundchen has reportedly refused to accept US dollars as payment for her work, due to their declining value.

Instead, she’s accepting only Euros, though if she’d like to model for DYH, I’d surely pay her in gold doubloon if that would make her happy.
