Red-haired androgynous beauty Tilda Swinton looks “hauntingly” beautiful in her new campaign for Pringle of Scotland.
The Oscar-winning actress - who fronted last season’s advertisements for the label - has been photographed alongside Turner prize winner Douglas Turner in an abandoned oyster bay in Loch Fyne, Scotland, and her unique look shines through. Talking about the campaign shot by photographer Ryan McGinley, Pringle creative director Clare Waight Keller told Vogue.com:
“There were really two moods that I felt strongly about for this campaign. The first was to use the Scottish landscape in quite a surreal way, where Ryan’s spectacular lighting, especially in the night photography, really captured the haunting beauty of Tilda and her surroundings and the uniqueness of Douglas Gordon in a truly stunning combination. The second was a slightly more boyish, ‘bovver boy’ feel, a bit more casual, hanging out at the back of a bike shed.”
UPDATE: Emma has since apologized via Twitter to those who were “unintentionally offended” by her misunderstood comments.
“I want to do something in fashion that wouldn’t be cheesy. I wouldn’t do, like, Emma Roberts for Target. I’d want do to something more like the Olsen twins did, Elizabeth and James and The Row, something that is really cool, wearable and still unique.”

Last night at a Glee event in Los Angeles, star Lea Michele shocked the paparazzi for several reasons:
- She sported bangs.
- She exposed a lot of cleavage.
- She did her best to not look like Idina Menzel (another party attendee) by stealing items from Nicole Richie‘s closet.
While I have to give Lea props for separating herself from her character (and for looking fabulous while doing it), am I the only one thinking she might be trying a bit too hard? You can see another picture of her after the jump and decide.

Dita Von Teese has declared that she will never have a tattoo. Although Marilyn Manson’s ex-wife is a fan of skin etchings, she has no desire to have a permanent design herself.
“I like tattoos, but I know when and how to appreciate something without needing it for myself, and that goes for more than just tattoos!” she wrote on Twitter.
The 37-year-old star, who is famous for her vintage-inspired wardrobe and glamorous look, has also revealed that she isn’t a fan of comfort clothes.
“I do relax; I just don’t relax by wearing jeans and sweatpants,” she told Las Vegas Weekly. “I have lots of robes and pajamas, and usually if you dropped in on me, I don’t wear a full face of makeup… But it’s not like I come home and go, ‘Wow, I really wish I had some sweatpants to put on right now.’ I don’t relate that to comfort. I’d rather put on a cashmere robe.”
Unlike most supermodels and celebrities these days, Gisele Bundchen could never be a fashion designer.
The world’s highest-paid model, who gave birth to her first child in December, admits she wouldn’t have the skills or the patience to create clothes and accessories full-time, but did enjoy working on her flip-flop collection, Ipamema, with Brazil’s largest shoe company Grendene.
Speaking at the launch in Paris, Gisele said, “I am very inspired by nature and like to use that for my ideas, but actually designing them - no way. I would be a disaster.”
The Brazilian beauty says she is more focused on her creations being environmentally-friendly rather than how much she helped design them. She told WWD, “Nature is very close to my heart, and it is important for me that people who buy my flip-flops are made aware of the environment.”
Despite being one of the world’s most successful supermodels, Gisele recently admitted she was initially terrified when she entered the fashion industry so invented a second persona:
Some celebrities wear gowns that have the chest support already built-in. Others opt to go the pasties route instead. But Rachel Bilson - why she just wears the bra that is part of the dress.
I just have to wonder: If this Preen design surfaced during Bilson’s Project Runway appearance, would she have been the only judge loving it?
At least the top half of her dress wasn’t grabbing her breasts like AnnaLynne McCord‘s was.

Jennifer Hudson loves her new slimmer look.
The Oscar-winning actress has managed to shed 60 lbs. following the birth of her son David Otunga Jr. last August and her Los Angeles-based trainer Harley Pasternak admits they had an unusual goal for her to aim for.
“Our goal was to bounce quarters off her butt. I think she looks fantastic. She loves the way she looks but she feels really great.”
Harley also claims Jennifer - who was recently announced as the face of Weight Watchers - is so motivated she will often exercise without him asking: “Unprompted, she’ll start running when I’ve just asked her to walk!”
Recently the Sex and the City actress admitted she loved joining Weight Watchers and felt like it changed her life for the better. She said, “I decided to do Weight Watchers. I feel like I’ve conquered the world. It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet. I don’t really diet as such. I actually get up and work hard every day. I make sure I eat right and just make sure I stay focused. It is about being consistent and sticking with it.”
Jessica Simpson has appeared make-up free on the cover of Marie Claire magazine.
The 29-year-old star - who came under heavy criticism for gaining weight last year - did the cover shoot, which is also free from retouching, in an effort to challenge pre-conceived notions of beauty. It looks as if she actually brushed her teeth, too!
“I don’t have anything to prove anymore. What other people think of me is not my business.”
However, the sexy singer, who recently fronted The Price of Beauty - a documentary following Jessica as she tries bizarre beauty treatments across the world - did admit she would still get dressed up when she felt she wanted to: “If I’m in a mood to go out and feel hot and sexy, I want long hair that I can feel on my back. But I also like bed head.”
Recently Jessica confessed she has changed thanks to her acceptance of her body and looks. She said, “There’s always something that I’ve wanted to fix because there’s always somebody who looks better; that’s what we always compare ourselves to. So I think the journey really was finding what was beautiful inside of me and knowing that it’s unique and rare. And it was a very powerful journey. It has definitely changed my life.”
Lady Gaga hates casually dressed celebrities.
The “Telephone” singer - who is famed for her eccentric fashion sense - believes stars should make an effort when they appear at red carpet events as she thinks it’s something the fans deserve:
“I think you should look nice all the time. When I meet celebrities and they’re in casual clothes, I’m always like, ‘Whaaat?’ I don’t mean to be judgmental, but it would do them better to be who they really are, all the time. When I get out of a car and there are 30 fans waiting for me, I know I’m dressed the way I should be. There’s a reason they have that emotional reaction.”
The 24-year-old star also admitted her image is highly sexed but denied rumours she buys her clothes from sex stores.
She told Britain’s OK! magazine, “Everybody loves sex. I would love to be introduced to one person on the planet that does not love sex. I don’t buy my clothes from sex shops. I just recently have had a love affair with S+M clothing and masks as I love the idea of telling stories with no face. I believe in some things very strongly and that is the power of showbiz.”
In what seems to be his continued attempt to promote thin people, Karl Lagerfeld has designed a range of Coca-Cola Light bottles.
The Chanel designer has created a limited edition bottle for release in France, made in aluminium and featuring his own silhouette (would it really have been anything else?). As well as designing the bottles, he also shot the advertising campaign starring models Coco Rocha and Baptiste Giacobini.
