David Beckham Still Not Used to Seeing His Underwear Billboards

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Editorials, Models

David BeckhamDavid 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."

Jessica Lange for Marc Jacobs Beauty

While Marc Jacobs might have received some flak for hiring Miley Cyrus for its Spring 2014 ad campaign, the label will surely win those fans back (and then some!) with the announcement of their decision to hire Jessica Lange as the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty.

The brand offered up a preview - shot by David Sims - in which Lange naturally pulls off the sultry-but-fierce look beneath some very noir-ish shadows. Even Jeurgen Teller couldn't resist photographing that face!

FIRST LOOK: Nicole Kidman Strips Down for Jimmy Choo

Nicole Kidman for Jimmy ChooCarrie Bradshaw, eat your heart out.

The Hours actress Nicole Kidman has bared it all for shoe designer Jimmy Choo in the company's latest ad campaign, proving that she's still looking fierce in her 40's. Despite her amazing figure, it was apparently the mother of three's acting resume that inspired creative director Sandra Choi to hire her to sell their shoes.

"I love Nicole Kidman's openness to embracing a new character and each season she transforms into a new personality that embodies the spirit of the collection... Her poses are striking yet unexpected and her natural beauty is mesmerizing. She exudes feminine confidence and there's a palpable sense of energy to the pictures," Choi said in a statement..

Kidman - who is married to country singer and American Idol judge Keith Urban - is pictured in one photo (to the right) wearing nothing but a purse and stockings while donning a blazer that barely covers her chest matched with barely-there panties in another (seen after the jump).

Blake Lively Is the New Face of L’Oreal

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, News

Blake LivelyAfter spending some time out of the spotlight - presumably due to her wedding to Ryan Reynolds last year - Blake Lively has emerged as the new spokesmodel for L'Oreal Paris.

The 26 year-old Gossip Girl veteran was recently unveiled as the latest face of the cosmetic giant, who released two black and white images of Lively (the second can be seen after the jump) today in celebration of the announcement.

"I grew up with the inspiration of [L'Oreal's] message, 'We're worth it.' What an important value to instill in women... That is why I'm so proud to be a L'Oreal Paris woman," the actress said in a statement. "I am thrilled and honored to join the incredible women who represent L'Oreal Paris."

Like her predecessors before her - Eva Longoria, Scarlett Johansson (who happens to be her husband's ex-wife), Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce among them - Lively is likely to star in numerous hair and makeup campaigns that are probably going to be so ubiquitous that you'll contemplate cancelling your cable and/or Hulu service.

VIDEO: Robert Pattinson, Camille Rowe Star in Dior Homme Ad

No one does the mysterious and brooding type better than Robert Pattinson, which is likely why the folks over at Dior casted him as the mysterious, brooding love interest opposite model Camille Rowe.

Released earlier today, the black-and-white (save for the end - ooh that's artsy!) clip sees Pattinson and Rowe as a fashionable-but-rebellious couple smoking cigarettes and causing a ruckus at a fancy dinner hall. Because, naturally, when you wear Dior Homme, you're compelled to act like you're in a French New Wave film.

Debenhams Lingerie Ads

U.K. retailer Debenhams made a bold move in the fight against the over-airbrushing of women in advertisements this week. The company has announced it will ban major retouching of lingerie models in the future, hopefully setting a precedent for American counterparts like Macy's.

"We want to help customers feel confident about their figures without bombarding them with unattainable body images... As well as being a positive from a moral point of view, it ticks the economic boxes as well. Millions of pounds a year are spent by organizations retouching perfectly good images," said the company's head lingerie buyer, Sharon Webb.
