Victoria Secret Supermodel Mom Adriana Lima Reveals Her Extreme Diet Secrets

7 Nov Adriana-Lima-Victoria-Secret-Supermodel-100293

The Victoria’s Secret model reveals her extreme diet before she hits the runway; no solid food and twice-a-day workouts!

No solid food, twice-a-day workouts and no water?!

Yep- welcome the life of one Victoria’s Secret model and her extreme, pre-runway routine.

Adriana Lima – a veteran Angel and mother of a 1-year-old – reveals in a new interview with The Telegraph exactly how she gets her smokin’ bod runway-ready.

Two months before the annual VS show, the model hits the gym not once but twice a day – doing everything from jumping rope to boxing to keep her trademark curves in top form.

And you know how you’re supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day? Well, this supermodel guzzles a GALLON a day when she’s training hard.

But 12 hours before the big show- it’s no agua at all. None.

Lima tells the paper: “No liquids at all so you dry out, sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that.”

So what does she eat? Salads, maybe? Grilled fish? Nope – try no solid foods for nine days pre-strut!

Instead, Lima drinks protein shakes made with powdered eggs. Yummy.

So, is all that sacrifice really worth it? According to this model, absolutely.

She says: “Actually, the Victoria’s Secret show is the highlight of my life. Becoming an Angel, once I achieved that, it was a dream-come-true for me.”

Well, Adriana, props for living the dream – and for admitting it’s not easy looking that perfect!

    Temperley London celebrates its 10th anniversary year in 2011 with its namesake creative director, Alice Temperley, MBE, heading up the House of Temperley with a design signature that has made her one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British fashion.

    Alice Temperley’s timeless, feminine designs combine meticulous detail and embellishments with an English eccentricity and personality drawing on everything British; Temperley is the modern day ‘Cool Britannia’.

    Following the success of the launch collection in 2000 at London Fashion Week, the first Temperley London boutique opened in 2001 on Colville Mews in Notting Hill, London where the head office and design rooms are still situated.

    This year sees the first year anniversary of ALICE by Temperley, a contemporary sister line created to fulfill a need for an everyday Temperley look in a more accessible market.

  • Bridal has grown to be an important part of the Temperley offering after the first bridal dresses were created following Alice’s own wedding to Lars Von Bennigsen, the CEO of Temperley Ltd, in 2002. There are now exclusive Bridal Salons in the London Mews and Los Angeles, Melrose Avenue stores with a full bridal collection of bespoke, made-to-order and current collection pieces, for private appointments only.

    The House of Temperley has also expanded into lifestyle with Temperley scented candles and has plans to move into homewear, menswear and childrenswear.

    The House produces 13 collections a year including; Cruise and Pre-Fall across the Temperley London and diffusion ALICE by Temperley line and 2 made-to-order bridal collections a year and key collaborations with leading British names such as the launch of Barbour Gold Label by Temperley in 2011.

  • The company operates 3 stand alone stores in London, Los Angeles and Dubai, and online stores for both lines at: temperleylondon.com and alicebytemperley.com. The lines are also currently available in over 200 doors across 35 countries worldwide.

    The past ten years have earned the House of Temperley critical acclaim and devoted fans around the world, dressing Royalty to the red carpet. Amongst many others, Temperley London fans include; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Reese Witherspoon and Claudia Schiffer. ALICE by Temperley has been worn by a range of fans including Emma Watson, Jessica Biel, Beyonce, Rihanna and Dakota Fanning.

  • While constantly being expanded in breadth, the House of Temperley always stays true to its philosophy; appreciating what women want with creations that exist outside of the trend of the moment and always flavoured with a sense of Alice’s individual ‘magpie’ style.

    The World of Temperley and its design philosophy is set to extend its influence, transforming it from one of Britain’s leading luxury brands to an all-encompassing lifestyle.

Fashion Show: Shop Dolce Gabbana Summer Collection 2012 Online ‘Must Haves’

23 Sep Dolce-Gabbana-SS12-Must-Haves-800515

Photos Dolce Gabbana


If you could distil the D&G SS12 Womens wear show what essence would you get? Foulard’s. These traditional, sometimes oldy-worldly accessories have been totally reinvented by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana and have become sexy and relevant once again.

The D&G collection for SS 12 is a real plethora of prints. From geometric to heraldic, from baroque to naïf, passing by polka dolts and stripes, the foulard, in its many forms has been adopted by the design duo and reinvented for 2012. With the idea of deconstructing the typically bourgeois silk handkerchief and challenging its traditional use, Dolce and Gabbana have created a significant collection with strong cultural overtones.

Taking the foulard in its purest form, (each swatch measures the traditional 70x70cm), as the foundation of the collection, the Italian design duo have created a visual feast. Unlike previous collections where mix and matching were at their centre, this season the effect is less like patchwork and more about actually tying together multiple handkerchiefs, lending it a more cerebral feel. Details like folds and knots take the collection away from the banal, giving it a fresh angle.

Worthy of particular mention are the sky-high platform wedges. The upper is made of an entire foulard; 70×70, which tied around the foot becomes a silky, light as a feather peep toe bootie. In contrast, the wedge is made of wood and is printed with a different style.  Dolce Gabbana.IT

NYFWK: Rachel Zoe RTW Spring 2012 – Brigitte Bardot Inspired Collection

15 Sep Rachel-Zoe-Spring-RTW-2012-

After years of attending fashion week as a stylist, Rachel Zoe found herself on the other side of the coin with her very own slot on the calendar this season.

On Monday she staged her first presentation, 30 looks that she said were inspired by Brigitte Bardot when she was dating Serge Gainsbourg. That was clear in the sheer white tie-neck blouse and high-waisted palazzo pants (which Zoe was wearing in black), leopard prints and a vaguely retro khaki cargo coat and matching shorts, but at this point Zoe’s own look is probably as well known as Bardot’s.

The gauzy Seventies dresses, jumpsuits and long, flared-leg trousers that are Zoe signatures were there, too, styled to a T with her shoe and bag collection.

The skeptics out there were no doubt wondering if the world needs another celebrity-branded collection. Probably not, but Zoe’s clothes are just as good as — and, in many cases, better than — her competition’s. Stores want items that sell and Zoe’s got a name on her door that millions of loyal, fashion-loving viewers know.
