Is Victoria Beckham Vying for Princess Kate's 'Gown Rewear' Crown?

Nov/18/2014 at 12:14 PM ET

Do you think Victoria Beckham is pulling a sartorial prank on us? We say this because it seems too strange to be true: Almost exactly one year ago (362 days ago to be exact), Victoria Beckham stepped out in a gown from her eponymous line at the Bambi Awards in Berlin, and accessorized with stunning emerald earrings and a ring. So when looking at photos of last night’s Global Gift Gala in London, we got red carpet déjà vu.

Eva Mendes's First Post-Baby Project: A Line of Bridesmaids Dresses!

Nov/07/2014 at 12:00 PM ET

Eva Mendes may have laid low throughout her pregnancy, but now it’s clear the new mom was definitely keeping busy while keeping out of sight. She designed a collection of bridesmaids dresses and accessories for her eponymous line with New York & Company — check it out below.

And yes, while we love looking at pretty dresses, we’re probably thinking what you’re thinking: Does designing for weddings mean she’s planning on walking down the aisle herself (and, ahem, dressing her maids in the looks à la Lauren Conrad)? It’s unclear, though right after Ryan Gosling and Mendes welcomed daughter Esmeralda in September, a friend of Mendes’s told PEOPLE that while the actress had said in the past she wasn’t planning to get married or have children, “with Ryan things are different … she’s very independent but she’s content with her partner. She finally found the person she really wants to be with.” In 2012, though, she told Marie Claire that she’d prefer not answering questions about marriage and babies, explaining, “Those are such boring topics to me… I am not that girl. I don’t like talking about things that I want in the future because I feel by verbalizing such things, they won’t come true.”

But even though wedding bells don’t seem to be ringing yet, Mendes has a definite appreciation for the bride’s big day.  “An important day needs a special dress,” said Mendes in a press release for the collection. “I love this collection for weddings and other special events. Feel great and dance the night away!”

The line consists of eight different dress styles, with a few structured A-line cuts (center), some longer draped jersey maxis and delicate chiffon gowns. They’ll all be available online and in stores in the last week of January 2015. The dresses range from $79 to $119 (a steal for bridesmaids looks!) and accessories (like jeweled hair pieces, statement necklaces and faux-flower corsages) will run you $22 to $42 for accessories.

Skechers must be in need of a little “peace and love”, because the footwear brand just recruited drummer Ringo Starr (you may know him from his little garage band called The Beatles) to appear in their Relaxed Fit Footwear campaign.

Heidi Klum Says Posing in her New Lingerie Line (at 41!) is as Easy as 'Riding a Bike'

Oct/17/2014 at 12:00 PM ET

She’s launched kids clothing, a line of activewear, multiple fragrances and now Heidi Klum, 41, is applying arguably her signature talent (that is, looking hot in next to nothing — and sharing that knowledge) to her latest venture. She’s replacing Elle Macpherson as the creative director and ad campaign model for New Zealand-based company Bendon’s line of lingerie, now called Heidi Klum Intimates and launching in January 2015.

Though the mother of four has been in the business for two decades, (as a Victoria’s Secret model for 13 years and stints in and on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue), she says she still manages to be surprised when it comes to underwear. “It’s almost like with the iPhone, how they’re always come up with something new and there’s always a new technology,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s the same thing with bras too, there’s always something new … the underwire and the padding has changed, and things are seamless!”

And she promises she won’t be making things too complicated — instead just adding fashionable twists to beloved garments — because when it comes to her own lingerie, she prefers to keep things simple. “I love soft bras. I don’t love a lot of padding,” she shares. “Maybe I’m at a different point in my life now, I like more of a natural look instead of when you’re so hoisted up and too pushed-up. I feel like I did that like 10 years ago, I don’t love that look so much any more.” So, keep an eye out for a few non-padded triangle and racer-back styles in her line.

There were few jitters for Klum when it came to taking campaign photos, as well as the more than 30 product images for her line. “My girlfriends were like, ‘Do you ever get self-conscious in front of all these people when you have nothing on?” she reveals. “But I don’t! When you’ve done it for so many years, it’s kind of like riding a bike.” Riding a bike in your undies surrounded by lots of people, that is. “There’s one person with a wind machine, and the next person with the powder, and the next holding a light, and there’s art directors and clients. I’m used to that. It doesn’t really bother me,” she says. “After doing this for 20 years you kind of build a thick skin. You just know you’re always being judged and that’s just the way it is. I just go with it!”

And while the line will be a combination of sexy and practical underpinnings (“If you want comfort, it can still be pretty!”), the Project Runway host has one lingerie rule she tends to stick to: “I do care about matching my bra and panties!” she says. “Most of the time if I get a beautiful bra I get a few more panties to go with it because I don’t really wash a bra every time I wear it. Obviously the underwear you do, and then you don’t have that matching set anymore. It’s nice when you take your clothes off to have that matching set on.” Wise words from a newly-minted lingerie magnate.

Tell us: are you excited to see what Heidi comes up with?

Katie Cassidy on Her New Line of Glasses: I Used to Wear Just Frames with No Lenses - People Thought I Was Nuts!

Oct/15/2014 at 10:30 AM ET

Katie Cassidy didn’t always need glasses, but that didn’t stop her from wearing them. “I love them so much that before I needed [reading glasses] I literally would pop out the lenses,” she tells PEOPLE. “I put them on and just felt like a whole new person, almost like a disguise. People probably thought I was nuts, but I didn’t care — they made me feel good and were fun to wear around.”

The Arrow actress is now sharing that passion for glasses with fans, creating a collection for Glasses.com with her best friend and fellow lifestyle blogger Lynsey Eaton (with whom she writes Tomboy KC). The pals took us behind the scenes of their Vancouver shoot, where they styled looks and got silly backstage — check out their photos and learn more about the collection below!

Sarah Jessica Parker Brings Her 'Carrie' Shoe Right to Carrie Bradshaw's Front Steps

Oct/08/2014 at 10:23 AM ET

Clearly, Sarah Jessica Parker is not her Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw, but they do overlap in a few key areas. For starters, they look a lot alike. They both married handsome brunets. And they’ve both got a serious thing for shoes. That’s why Parker couldn’t resist naming one of the styles in her shoe line “The Carrie” — and also why she brought her shoes on a pilgrimage to the West Village townhouse that stood in for Carrie’s Upper East Side apartment on the show.
