Swimwear is one of the few things that we end up replacing and updating each season since we exhaust each and every opportunity to get into those babies. Therefor, by the end of the warm months, we and our suit of choice have been in enough photos on Facebook together to warrant a relationship status update. That’s why, when picking out a suit to live in this summer, we like to go a little trendy. Check out picks for the top swimsuits of the season, and which 2011 swimwear trends to watch out for. Here’s to making a splash!

Reality Star Kimora Lee Simmons Talks About Her Recent 30lb Weight Loss

Kimora Lee Simmons is back to talk about her recent weight loss – let’s hear her out:

You look amazing! Have you reached your goal?

I don’t know if I ever had a goal. I was just trying to lose some of the baby weight I’d gained when I was pregnant. Kenzo was a year old and I was thinking about getting my life back. Now the baby is almost 2, and I’ve lost about 30 pounds since last fall.

Does it bother you to see photos from when you were heavier?

Well, I’d just had a baby! I’m not bothered about it. I don’t live my life with that pressure. I’m a mother, a wife, a businesswoman. I’m not an actress, so I don’t have that life where I have to be on stage. I have the TV show, I’m into production and I develop businesses. I don’t feel like I have to be a size 2. I’m beautiful. When I was pregnant, I was probably like a 10 1/2, but I don’t really know. That would be a guess, and now I’m more like a size 6. But I always feel sexy.

If I’m pregnant, I feel like I’m bringing a life into this world and I feel like that’s beautiful as well. Now I’m thinner and that’s a different kind of sexy – but it’s always sexy.

What is your diet-and-exercise routine?

I do very easy things. Running after a 1-year-old really will do it, and I have three kids. I do a little cardio every day, and it doesn’t have to be on a machine. I sometimes take a walk. I try to do it for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. I stopped eating junk food, like chips and candy. It’s about timing, portion control and eating healthy foods that fill you up.

What was the hardest part of losing weight?

Not eating all the great things I love, as if we had really broken up! And even now, I’ll have a little bread. I am not neurotic about it. I don’t do things that I can’t maintain as party of a normal lifestyle… It’s all about moderation and making substitutions. For example, I have cut back on my dairy and I don’t eat so much fattening red meat.

Sofia Vergara Covers March Shape Magazine 2011

22 Feb

Sofia Vergara covers the March 2011 issue of Shape Magazine. I joked a few posts back about the magazine running out of bikinis, because they’d put Marisa Miller in a dress too. I guess there’s some kind of crippling bikini shortage (perhaps Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue had some kind of custom job built out of scraps from the laundry hamper).

Because Shape has decided to put Vergara’s amazing curves in a dress. A not especially nice dress. In a really odd colour that does nothing for her.

You pretty much can’t tell she has a waist, or boobs, or two arms/ hands/ legs for that matter. It’s a pretty oddly-composited shot and there’s not much to like about it. Which is a shame, as I rather like her. That said, she’s being rather repetitive in her interviews again. Talking about being a proud Latina and how that influences a positive body image… blah, blah.

* On being make-up free: ‘If I walk outside without lipstick, I feel naked,’ the actress, 38, tells the March issue of Shape, in which she’s named the sexiest woman in Hollywood.

* On her favourite body part: ‘I’m sure men would tell you it’s my boobs, but I like my eyes,’ she says. ‘They have a natural cats-eye shape, so I try to play that up.’

* Of her frequent workout sessions with trainer Gunnar Peterson: ‘Oh, I hate it. But I also know that at my age, I’m almost 40, I have to do it to maintain my figure. When I can, I try to do Latin dancing for exercise because it’s so much fun and I just love the music. Two hours before I go [to the gym], I’m already wishing it was over. I psychologically fool myself into believing it’s part of my job.’

* On being proud of her age and heritage: ‘I think when women reach a certain age, they look better with a little fat in their face,’ she tells the issue. ‘I’m lucky I’m Latin because people expect me to be a bit more plump.’

* On how Latin women are more confident: ‘Confident people have a way of carrying themselves that makes others more attracted to them,’ she says. ‘Latin women are very comfortable with their bodies and their sexuality. We aren’t afraid to show that off a little bit more.’

* On her family’s approach to beauty: ‘All the women in my family are that way. We put make-up on to give birth. When I started feeling contractions with my son [Manolo, 19], the first thing I did was wash and blow-dry my hair before I went to the hospital. You never know how long you’ll be in labor. It could be days until you’re able to take a shower.’
