I WAS OBJECTIFIED - JESSICA ALBA OPENS UP

Jessica Alba smolders in new US Marie Claire shoot but says that she doesn't like the attention she gets for what she wears - she simply wants to be seen as a mother.



Jessica was thrust into the limelight when she was only 19 when she starred in Dark Angel. She tells Marie Claire that she was 'marketed' as a 'sexy, tough action girl' but she hated being so objectified. She says how she just wanted to be seen as sophisticated and glamorous but was not allowed. Jessica Alba, now 31, says that she has matured and doesn't want to be talked about in a negative way, she would 'rather not make a statement' and she puts motherhood first.


'Now I dress for myself. It took me some time to get here. Being a mum and feeling grown-up have helped' Jessica declared. We think Jessica still looks amazing over a decade since her appearance on Dark Angel! She totally rocks the sultry look while still looking respectable and classy. Jessica we salute you!

GYM INSPIRATION

If this photograph isn't enough to make you want to hurl yourself onto a running machine or grab a pair of weights then nothing will!



She first found fame as a model 15 years ago but Gisele Bündchen is still as stunning as ever and in absolutely perfect shape! The 31 year old decided to show off her toned body on a risqué cover for the upcoming issue of Paris Vogue. Gisele posed of a beach wearing nothing but skimpy pair of black bottoms. The bikini bottoms showed off Gisele's toned-to-perfection bottom which was covered in sand. Wind is billowing through Gisele's honey blonde locks and the word 'jealous' cannot even describe how this photo makes me feel! When Kate Moss said that 'nothing tastes as good as skinny feels' she was clearly right because to be as perfectly toned as Gisele would beat any amount of Haagen Daaz!

A few facts about Gisele
Bündchen was a Victoria Secret Angel from 2000 until 2006. Since 2004, she has been the highest-paid model in the world and the sixteenth richest woman in the entertainment industry with an estimated $150 million fortune.

 Models Claduia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell have both stated that Bündchen is the only true remaining "supermodel" and according to Forbes she may become the world's first ever billionaire supermodel. All I can say is wow!

CHANEL CRUISE SHOW

The Chanel Cruise 2013 show took my breath away! There truly is nothing quite like a Chanel show yet this one was on another level. Karl Lagerfeld ensured that the Cruise 2013 show was more dripping with glamour than ever and to describe the show as 'lavish' would be a huge understatment.

The show was held in the beautiful Le Palais de Versailles which are not normally open to the public. Three gorgeous fountains served as the backdrop for the show. Stella Tennant and Kristen Mcmenamy - favourite models of mine, were for me noticably absent however Cara Delevingne worked the gravel 'runway' with her usual elegance and energy. She walked first in a denim dress with a simply, sharp A-line skirt. Even Georgina May Jagger made an appearance! The whole show hinted at Classical, French aristocracy - we were all transported back to the French Revolution! From full skirts to tight corsets, to an abundance of frills and lace accents all paired with an abundance of denim, brothel creepers and candy coloured wigs.












Lagerfeld - wearing his trademark frock-coat and inscrutable behind his sunglasses - said the collection was about "serious frivolity." Monsier Lagerfeld definitely made sure that no one ensemble from the show was dull. Pastel colours were in abundance and mixed with the beautiful scenery and the perfect blue sky the entire show was no less than stunning!
