-- Victoria Beckham covers February's issue of Vogue UK looking rather bare-faced and less glamorous than usual. Marking her sixth solo Vogue cover, the singer-turned-fashion designer talks about her style's evolution and -- more importantly -- what it's like to wake up next to David Beckham.
-- Hilary Swank is one Oscar-winning actress who actually is down-to-earth: the woman loves a good bargain, and isn't ashamed of -- gasp -- clipping coupons. If only she had shopping secrets to scoring designer labels...
-- Anja Rubik stars in her third consecutive Fendi campaign, shot (of course) by Karl Lagerfeld.
-- Speaking of Anja, the model's agency recently announced her Christmas engagement to fellow model Sasha Knezevic. As if there aren't enough super hot couples to be jealous of.
-- Lady Gaga treated her monsters to a nice holiday surprise with details of her upcoming album. More importantly, she posted a preview of the album art, which features her rocking a unicorn-blazoned jean jacket that reads, "Born This Way." Oh, and she has completely ditched pants -- literally.
Anja Rubik is back for a second consecutive time modeling for Fendi’s ad campaign for Fall/Winter 2010, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld himself!
In the same stylish vein as Miu Miu’s campaign, the photos’ mood (catch more after the jump!) has a vintage feel, reinforcing the current fascination with television’s Mad Men. Surprise, surprise—Karl’s
favorite model Baptiste Giabiconi makes an appearance.
What do you think of the photos—too plain or fashionably sophisticated?

Polish model Anja Rubik says yoga helps her to walk in high heels.
The 26-year-old beauty - who has taken to the catwalk for Stella McCartney, Viktor + Rolf and Jean Paul Gaultier in the past - credits the stretching exercise with helping her maintain balance.
“I’ve been practicing yoga for three years. My job involves a lot of sitting on airplanes and a lot of walking in high heels! I find yoga helps with both. It can also do amazing things physically; it keeps me fit and helps my balance and focus.”
Actress-singer Juliette Lewis “appreciates” clothes which look like they’re designed in outer space.
The actress adores designers Alexander McQueen and John Galliano because their clothes are dramatic and help her achieve a unique style.
“To me, Alexander McQueen and John Galliano appear to create in an alternative universe. Although I haven’t worn much from either, I really appreciate their sense of drama. For beautiful, uniquely tailored suits I like Todd Lynn. His stuff is really timeless and chic. One of my favorite outfits is an elegant, pale grey wool suit that he designed.”
The 36-year-old beauty also aims to continue her “fun” style onto the red carpet: “I love dressing up. I wore a sequined Fendi T-shirt dress, crazy maroon tights and incredible Loriblu ankle boots to the premiere of my new film, Whip It, at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles. It was a very fun, very me outfit.”
As well as wearing designer outfits, Juliette often shops for vintage pieces and regularly customizes items herself. She added, “I find a lot of one-of-a-kind pieces in vintage shops and markets, but I’m a fan of Topshop, too. I recently bought a dress from there that I ripped up and customized to wear onstage.”
