The Best Of Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder’s 2017 Collection
Victoria Beckham is a fashion and beauty goddess of epic proportions and Estée Lauder have built a reputation for themselves as one of London’s finest makeup companies. Now imagine what these two powerhouses could be together. That’s what their creative heads did last fall when they paired the two for a September 2016 collection of high-performance formulas bottled in exquisite packaging. Unsurprisingly, the exclusive line quickly became an international phenomenon and global success, selling out in just days and creating a clamor for more from VB x Estée Lauder. Now, after months of anticipation and skepticism, the beauty world’s eager gossip is laid to rest by a whole new line-up from this all-star duo. Featuring somber tones with a spark of playfulness, even a brief overview of this year’s Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder beauty collection makes it clear these are the products you need to be using this fall.

Zendaya Curates a Spring Capsule Collection with Boohoo
If you love Zendaya (and her incredible personal fashion sense!) then you need to go all out to prepare yourself for the Zendaya Boohoo Edit. The 21-year-old actress has partnered with e-retailer Boohoo.com to hand-pick some of the hottest pieces from the brand’s Spring 2018 launch as part of her own 90s-inspired capsule collection. Zendaya has compiled a 50-piece selection of denim styles, athleisure looks, on-trend jumpsuits, fun crop tops, and stylish co-ords. The best part is, everything in the collection will be affordable, ranging in price from about $10-$100.
“I know my fans, and I know what’s important to them,” the actress shared about her partnership. “They are chic, fashion-forward and love clothes, but like most people, wanna be able to ball on a budget. So I felt this was a perfect fit, to help them choose some easy pieces that aren’t just ‘trendy’ but also attainable.”
“We’re in the era of fast fashion, and young people like myself want fashionable clothes, and we want them quickly. [Boohoo] does a really great job of keeping up with the times… and they’re able to deliver at a price point that’s realistic for a lot of people,” Zendaya told PopSugar. “[Boohoo] has great pieces that you can make your own and either dress up or dress down. You could just buy a simple dress to start with and wear it with either sneakers or heels. So, Boohoo is sort of like multipurpose fashion, which I think is important, especially when you’re ballin’ on a budget.”
How amazing is it that the star is keeping her younger fans – and all of our budgets! – in mind with this ultra-stylish launch?!
The entire Zendaya Boohoo Edit will be available to shop exclusively on the brand’s website starting on March 21.

The Bedazzled History of Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra
If you think you know what an expensive bra is, you haven’t seen Victoria’s Secret’s Fantasy Bra collection. If you thought the company’s most stupendous achievement was its infamous annual fashion show, you are clearly missing out. Ever since the Fantasy Bra debuted in 1996, the company has been experimenting with jewel-studded cups and gold filigree straps. Ranging anywhere from $1 million to $15 million dollars, these designs have become yet more iconic proof that Victoria’s Secret is the international bra queen. Not only are her designs the world’s sexiest bras; they are the most expensive. The 2016 Victoria’s Secret fashion show coming up on December 9th, so to prepare you for this year’s Fantasy Bra, let’s look through the glamorous evolution of the most expensive bras in the world.
Spoiler Alert: The 2016 Fantasy Bra unveiled below!
1996 – The Million-Dollar Miracle Bra
Before it was the Fantasy Bra, Claudia Schiffer adorned the cover of Victoria’s Secret’s Christmas catalog in this $1 million “miracle.”
1997 – The Diamond Dream Bra
It looks pretty plain and white to be one of the most expensive bras in the world, but this sophomore design’s diamond-studded hem and a centerpiece made still made it a $3 million investment.
1998 – The Dream Angel Fantasy Bra
With jeweled straps and intricate lace, the first of Victoria’s Secret bra titled a “Fantasy Bra” upped the ante by $2 million. It cost $5 million to bring home this beauty.
1999 – The Millennium Bra
Who better than to flaunt one of the world’s sexiest bras than Heidi Klum? The Millennium Bra, studded with dozens of diamond stars, blended sexy and expensive to the tune of $10 million.
2000 – The Red Hot Fantasy Bra
Victoria’s Secret’s most expensive bra was ruby red hot. Reaching the pinnacle of expensive bras at the turn of the century, this hot red bra cost a whopping $15 million!
2001 – The Heavenly Star Bra
With a big bad jewel connecting two bejeweled cups, this bra went down in cost while going up in design aesthetic. It was $12.5 million for the Heavenly Star Fantasy Bra.
2002 – The Star of Victoria Fantasy Bra
With a Disney princess vibe, this bedazzled bra continued the aesthetic development of expensive Victoria’s Secret bras. The price dropped too, to $10 million.
2003 – The Very Sexy Fantasy Bra
Despite its uninspired name, the 2003 Fantasy Bra was one of Victoria’s Secret’s most successful. It had a Wonder Woman look to it, brought Heidi Klum back for a third time, and was the first million-dollar bra to feature a jewel centerpiece pendulum.
2004 – The Heavenly “70” Fantasy Bra
A close examination of this bra shows detailed thematic design work. Perhaps this $100 million creation was the birth of the Victoria’s Secret Angels.
2005 – The Sexy Splendor Fantasy Bra
I never thought I’d see a cross between Mrs. Claus and Wonder Woman, but this is it. The metallic structure of this pricey holiday bra evokes bicycle wheels and gears, giving the $12.5 million design a mechanical feel.
2006 – The Hearts of Fire Diamond Fantasy Bra
If the White Witch of Narnia were a sexy millionaire, this is what she’d wear. The foliage-inspired wings and crystalline jewels appear like $6.5 million snow.
2007 – The Holiday Fantasy Bra
Here’s your $4.5 million Christmas Eve dalliance. The Victoria’s Secret fashion show is a December affair, so it was inevitable the holiday spirit would creep in at some point.
2008 – The Black Diamond Fantasy Bra
This was the first black bra to become one of the most expensive bras in the world. Valued at a modest $5 million, this bra features gold and silver swirling on a black diamond backdrop. If that’s not sexy, I don’t know what is.
2009 – The Harlequin Fantasy Bra
This second entry in the black Fantasy Bra canon looks a little like two apple pie crusts clamped onto Marisa Miller’s breasts. At least the cost is back down to $3 million.
2010 – The Bombshell Fantasy Bra
We’ve been through Wonder Woman, angels, and black diamonds, and now we land in exoticism. Though this bra sounds like an homage to Marilyn Monroe, it seems to be a celebration of pastel feathers.
2011 – The Fantasy Treasure Bra
Is this The Little Mermaid staged as a runway show? This turquoise bra is definitely right out of a sea fantasy. The costume almost outshines the $2.5 million bra. Impressive!
2012 – The Floral Fantasy Bra
Back on land, this bra feels right out of Alice and Wonderland. I’m beginning to wonder if $2.5 million is what it costs to be an adult Victoria’s Secret Disney princess…
2013 – The Royal Fantasy Bra
Finally, we’re back to the truly expensive Fantasy Bra more focused on being Victoria’s Secret’s most expensive bra than part of some runway theme. The price is back up too, at a whopping $10 million.
2014 – The Dream Angels Fantasy Bras
Worn by two veterans from past Victoria’s Secret fashion show, Adriana Lim and Alessandra Ambrosio, these may be the most interesting of the annual collection. With clear Indian influence, these rare designs show a surprising cultural awareness in Victoria’s Secret bras.
2015 – The Fireworks Fantasy Bra
Last year’s luxurious bra claimed was inspired by everyone’s favorite explosions: fireworks. It looks more like a costume from Waltz of the Flowers. Firework or flower, the $2 million bra certainly was colorful and one of our favorites at Richard Magazine.
2016 – The Bright Night Fantasy Bra
A bejeweled bra with turquoise accents is the newest Fantasy Bra in the collection from the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Jasmine Tookes wore this exotic look in Paris over the weekend. If you’re looking for a sexy $3 million gift for your lady, you can’t beat this.
Now you know the full history of the most expensive bras in the world. The 2016 Fantasy Bra has already been revealed, but it won’t be worn until the 2016 Victoria’s Secret fashion show on December 9th. These can tide you over while you wait.
These Victoria’s Secret Models Are Returning For Seconds (And Even Thirds)
If we told you it’s Angel season, you’d be justified in telling us to settle down. Lingerie’s biggest night of the year won’t happen for another two months and a bit more. However, there’s a method to our madness. Sure, The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show won’t take to the catwalk until November, but the cast of sexy ladies who will represent seductive attire’s biggest name has just been chosen. That’s right. You can follow every member of the brand’s returning all-star team on Instagram and watch their Twitter accounts for behind-the-scenes coverage leading up to the big day. So, grab your phones and get those fingers poised over the like button. Just in case you missed them last year, here are the returners confirmed to be flaunting their stuff again at 2017’s VS Fashion Show.
One of the returning Angels, Candice is also an excellent photographer. Just check out her Instagram feed.
Martha basically announced her inclusion in the 2017 VS Show with major nostalgia. Points for #tbt worthiness for sure.
Stella is a VS runway veteran. Just look at the ease with which she holds her wings.
It’s no secret Gigi loves being an Angel. Good thing too, since she keeps getting cast.

XIAO WEN JU
Representing her home country of China once again, Xiao is making impressive strides for diversity on the VS runway.
Taking her casting announcement as a moment for personal reflection, Daniela reminds us Angels are also relatable human beings.
Herieth’s smiling face will be a brilliant addition to the VS Fashion Show. We love the pixie cut too. Definitely mark her down as a model to watch this season.
She’s a simple fashionista known for wearing unimposing outfits. What an excellent choice for the VS runway.
Sanne is ready for her third time working on Victoria’s Secret’s biggest day of the year. She also happens to be an excellent role model for 90s-obsessed fashionistas.
For her announcement, Maria congratulated her fellow models for getting into the VS Show with her. She must be the Angel with a heart of gold.
Sexy vintage is this Angel’s specialty. Even in her VS robe, she evokes Stockard Channing and the gang from Grease.
A classic VS girl who has those 90s locks going for her, Maggie seems to be proof that the more things change the more they stay the same.
And the award for best head of hair at The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show goes to…
Williams has Hollywood class. With her confidence, you’d think this was walk three or four, not just two.
If you somehow missed last year’s VS Show, here’s a quick glance at the board from 2016. Barbara sure knows how to draw in her fans.
With a perfect face soft as Barbie’s Kate moves with the grace expected of an Angel all the time. No wonder she got invited back for more.
Hopefully, you’re already following most of the returning Angels. If not, your Instagram just got a lot more exciting. If nothing else, this library of behind-the-scenes footage should keep you entertained until November comes along.

Zendaya Is Named the New Celebrity Face of Lancôme
There is no denying that Zendaya‘s style-crossover career is on fire right now. Just days after unveiling her highly-anticipated fashion collection with Tommy Hilfiger, the Spider-Man: Far from Home and The Greatest Showman actress has revealed that she’s the newest celebrity face of Lancôme. Plus, the first-ever Zendaya Lancôme beauty campaign images have been revealed – and the spring-themed snaps are absolutely stunning.
Françoise Lehmann, the international president of L’Oréal-owned brand Lancôme, said that the 22-year-old starlet will bring a fresh and young perspective to the iconic label.
“Zendaya brings a youthful and a unique approach to beauty that perfectly complements Lancôme’s vision and creativity,” Lehmann said in an announcement statement.
Zendaya is thrilled to be part of this makeup family, and feels that the move is part of a new chapter in her life.
“It’s a huge honor to be able to represent a brand like Lancôme and join such an incredible line-up of iconic women,” the actress said in a press statement.
Now that she’s partnering with the legacy beauty brand, she joins the likes of all-star brand ambassadors like Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Taylor Hill, Isabella Rossellini, Lily Collins, Penelope Cruz, Lupita Nyong’o and more.
“I’m growing up and I feel like I’m coming into my adulthood and shifting into a new phase in my career and in my life,” Zendaya shared with WWD about her partnership. “It felt like that next step, that next elevated step.”
“Obviously, I love makeup. I love that world,” she added. “Some people who are in my profession, they don’t love it, but I really enjoy it because I always found makeup to be very therapeutic. I sometimes do my own makeup just before events just to calm down and chill. It’s kind of just my me time….I really enjoy it more as an art form. I’ve used [Lancôme’s] products for so long and it’s always been one of those staple brands of class and elegance, so it just felt like the right step.”
We can’t wait to see more updates from this upcoming Zendaya Lancôme campaign!
