Priyanka Chopra has been tapped as the new Guess Girl, a modeling gig that until now, has never been filled by an Indian woman, according to a story published Monday in Women’s Wear Daily.
"I’m like their first brown model,” Chopra told the publication, adding: “For a global fashion brand, for them to move their campaign into a global space, for me it's an honor." The campaign, a series of black-and-white photos shot by photographer Bryan Adams, show Chopra lounging in a Mediterranean villa and will debut in the December issues of Harper’s Bazaar, Nylon, Elle, and The Wall Street Journal, among others.
Scoring Chopra is a huge coup for Guess, which has largely relied on the blond bombshell ideal: Tousled platinum hair, blue eyes, pouty lips, and overflowing cleavage. Past Guess Girls have included Claudia Schiffer, Anna Nicole Smith, Kate Upton, and Paris Hilton, among others.
And while you may not know much about the 30-year-old

Denim has come a long, long way since Levi Strauss & Co. created jeans for working men way back in 1873. From bell-bottoms and pegged cuffs to acid wash and jeggings, popular denim trends serve as a timeline throughout history. In recent years women have gotten increasingly experimental with their jeans of choice, opting for bright colors, zipper adornments, leathery coated fabric, and patterns like floral, striped, and camo. Since ladies are willing to take more risks, designers have upped the ante this season as jeans take a seriously ugly turn. For every perfect-fitting pair of dark skinny jeans, there is an equally hideous pair adorned with studs, patches, chains, and metallic animal print. Behold, the most terrifying, ugly jeans in stores now. By Joanna Douglas, Yahoo Shine Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor

The closest thing we as a country have to a real-life Barbie and Ken, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady have added another home to their arsenal. The couple has snapped up a condo in the One Madison glass tower on E. 22nd St., according to Page Six. Never ones to hold back (check out their recently built, 14,000 square foot Los Angeles palace, replete with "koi stocked moat"), the pair reportedly spent $14 million on the building's model apartment, "a full-floor private residence" on the 47th floor with "amazing city and river-to-river plus park views." In other words, Gisele will be able to wake up every morning and actively choose what kind of vista she feels like gazing at as she sips her chai tea.Read More »from Inside Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s $14 Million N.Y.C.

Some commenters think this ring, at left, is a baby gift from Prince William.The ur-Kate Middleton style blog What Kate Wore has details of Kate's peacock-colored appearance last week at a hedge-funder gala, and with it, an interesting note: the guest of honor was wearing a large, diamond-and-platinum (or white gold, but let's be real here) ring on her right hand. Kate does not typically wear rings, aside from her gumball-sized, 18-carat sapphire engagement stone. And because of that, or perhaps because wild, diamond-inclusive conjecture is fun for the monarchy-obsessed, some of the blog's commenters have dubbed the cocktail piece a potential "push present" from Prince William, speculating about it both on the blog and on the site's Facebook fan page.

The concept of the push present, among the world's worst-sounding things, allegedly encompasses anything from a deep-tissue massage to a hug, and despite the exclusionary aspects of its name, "C-section moms definitely deserve one too," perRead More »from Prince William’s Baby Gift to Kate?

When prepping for a first date, it's normal to want to reach for your tried-and-true little black dress-but according to new research shared by the Daily Mail, you might consider swapping that LBD for an LRD. Men are apparently most likely to form a lasting relationship with a woman who wears red on the first date. On the flip side, girls are most likely to go for guys who dress in grey for date number one-enter obligatory 50 Shades joke here.
The UK study polled 1,128 British females and 1,232 British males currently in relationships, 92 percent of whom remembered which hue their partner was wearing the first time they met. Surprisingly, 69 percent of men and 64 percent of women then admitted that the color their partner happened to wear during that fateful first date affected how attracted they were to them. Below, check out the stats:

Every year, we're resolved to get an early start and whip up an amazing Halloween guise well before the 31st. But, the reality is, it never happens. The weeks leading up to the big day tend to be crazy busy, so we end up with whatever we can cull from the remains of a ransacked CVS Halloween aisle.
But this year, that's going to change. We've dreamed up five super-cool costumes inspired by iconic celebs - which means you won't get that annoying "Who are you supposed to be?" query all night. The best part? You can assemble these getups from the pieces you already have on hand. From pop superstars to fashion heavy hitters to the coolest couple's costume ever, these ensembles require minimal effort (at most, a phone call to borrow a prop) for maximum impact. So, what are you waiting for? Seriously, there's no time to lose!
