Gisele Bundchen has been named the new face of Chanel No. 5 perfume.
The Brazilian supermodel will take over from Brad Pitt to front the scent, and has been filming an advert with Baz Luhrmann to promote it in Sagaponack, New York state.
According to WWD, Gisele was chosen to represent the brand because of her "natural beauty and modern femininity." After initial filming last week, the model will film further shots in New York City.
Baz is also no stranger to directing adverts for Chanel No. 5 as he previously helmed a 2004 campaign for the fragrance featuring Nicole Kidman. Victoria's Secret beauty Gisele, who has two children - Benjamin, four, and 17-month-old Vivian - with her husband, NFL star Tom Brady, may be an internationally famous model, but she's not afraid to muck in and clean out the chicken run at her home in Los Angeles. "I have a beautiful garden where I raise chickens. We have very little waste because the chickens eat all of the vegetable scraps, and anything they won't eat, I put in my compost pile with the chicken poo," she explained.
David Beckham's mum calls him up when she sees billboards of him in his underwear.
The retired soccer star - who recently launched a new swimwear range for H&M - still isn't used to seeing himself fronting brand campaigns in next to nothing and neither is his mother, Sandra.
When asked about whether he gets used to seeing himself on giant billboards, he told ShortList magazine, "I don't think so. Especially not when I've got my mum calling me up saying, 'I've just seen another huge billboard of you in London - just you, in your underwear.'"
Although at first David - who has children Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and Harper, two, with wife Victoria - was embarrassed by the prospect of allowing the world to see him half-naked, he has grown used to it, but he was left red faced in New Jersey during the Super Bowl where there were millions of posters of himself all over the city: "But it is what it is. At first I was like, 'Oh my God I'm sat there in my underwear and everyone around the world can see it.' This year at the Super Bowl it was ridiculous. I've never seen so many billboards of myself in one city. Every corner I turned, every street, I was there, so it was verging on embarrassing after a while."
Kendall Jenner is set to appear in Vogue.
The model and reality TV, whose sister Kim Kardashian appeared on the cover of the magazine with fiance Kanye West for the April issue, will have her own photoshoot featured in the fashion bible. According to E! News, the 18-year-old beauty has been photographed by acclaimed snapper Patrick Demarchelier for the forthcoming feature, while he has also taken photos of Sean Penn's daughter Dylan for the edition.
Kendall is keen to build on her experience in the modeling industry and carve out a career, having made her mark on the fashion world at New York Fashion Week in February, where she walked the runway for top designer Marc Jacobs.
Her successful stint subsequently saw her hired by Giles Deacon at London Fashion Week and by Chanel during Paris Fashion Week, cementing her reputation as a high-end model.
Doutzen Kroes is expecting a baby girl.
The Victoria's Secret model has revealed that she and her husband Sunnery James are set to welcome a daughter in late July. The blonde beauty shared a fresh-faced snapshot on her Instagram account, which showed her posing with a big smile on her make-up free face. "Almost 6 months pregnant with a girl #happy," she captioned the image.
The couple are already parents to a three-year-old son, Phyllon. They have been dating since 2009 and tied the knot in Amsterdam four and a half years ago.
"People always say 'Why do you have thin models? That's not what real people look like,' but nobody really wants to see a real person looking like a real person on the cover of Vogue... I think Vogue is a magazine that's about fantasy to some extent and dreams, and an escape from real life... People don't want to buy a magazine like Vogue to see what they see when they look in the mirror. They can do that for free... I get fed up with having to deal with the question of why are models thin, that sort of bores me."
- Alexandra Shulman, editor of Vogue UK, explains why you won't be seeing any real-sized models under her reign of the fashion glossy.

Lupita Nyong'o used to pray for lighter skin.
The Kenyan actress received the Best Breakthrough Performance Award for her role in 12 Years A Slave at Essence's magazine's seventh annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon yesterday and accepted it with a speech telling how she overcame being "teased and taunted" for her "night-shaded skin."
"My one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter-skinned. The morning would come and I would be so excited about seeing my new skin that I would refuse to look down at myself until I was in front of a mirror because I wanted to see my fair face first. And every day I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I was the day before."
