Gisele Bündchen Gives Rare Glimpse of Her Wedding Day (and Dress!), in Honor of 6th Anniversary With Husband Tom Brady

Tis the season for a #TBT from supermodel Gisele Bündchen!

And no, it's not because it's the blond beauty's birthday (that would be July 20), it's because the 36-year-old stunner is celebrating her sixth wedding anniversary to husband Tom Bradytoday.

In honor of the memorable milestone, Bündchen took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photo from her "magical" wedding day, which took place back in 2009 in Costa Rica (the couple first said "I do" surrounded by immediate family at Santa Monica's Catholic Church before heading to Bündchen's Costa Rican estate to celebrate).

"Magical day! #tbt ❤️❤️❤️," the mother of two captioned the shot which revealed her gorgeous white wedding gown (how insane does her body look?!) as well as the couple's ultra-chic cake-topper.

The rare glimpse of the couple's wedding day is only the second time we've seen a photo from the pair's nuptials. In honor of the couple's fifth wedding anniversary, Bündchen posted a similar shot last year, which marked the first time fans were treated to a peek of the pair's romantic ceremony.

Likewise, the quarterback for the New England Patriots also took to his social media page to share his appreciation for his wife of six years.

"Gisele, thank you for being the love of my life!" he wrote.

Seriously, can these two get any cuter?!

Earlier this month, Bündchen covered British Vogue and opened up about her relationship with Brady, with whom she has two children, son Benjamin, 5, and daughter Vivian Lake, 2.

"I knew Tom was the one straightaway," she revealed. "I could see it in his eyes that he was a man with integrity who believes in the same things I do."

Swoon, much? Congrats to the happy couple!

2015 Oscars Red Carpet by the Numbers

2015年02月25日

2015 Oscars Red Carpet by the Numbers: $7.5 Million in Diamonds, 6,000 Pearls, 9 Versace Dresses & More!

The curtains have closed on the 2015 Oscars, but we're still all agog about those red carpet gowns!

And even more than just dresses, we're interested in numbers—which is why we counted the most worn designers, common color for suits and carried-on-the-carpet clutches. With a little bit of research (and a lot of day-after-the-Oscars caffeine) we've also rounded up the most interesting facts and tidbits about the custom gowns and ultra-luxe gems on the carpet. Read on for the digits we found most staggering below!

6,000: Pearls on custom Calvin Klein Collection column gown Lupita Nyong'o wore. (It's still unclear how much a 6,000 pearl-adorned gown actually weighs, however.)

80,000: Hand-painted sequins adorning Oscar winner Julianne Moore's Chanel Haute Couture gown, which was designed by Karl Lagerfeld, sewn by 27 people and finished in, oh, just 987 hours.

25: Number of people it took to craft Lady Gaga's custom Alaïa gown (in no less than 1,600 hours). This, by the way, is the one (and only one) custom-made dress that Azzedine Alaïa has designed for a star to wear on the red carpet.

0: Number of red dishwashing gloves that were hurt in the gown-creation process.

2,000: Swarovski crystals in the bejeweled collar attached to Scarlett Johansson's emerald green Versace dress (yes, we could have sworn that was a statement necklace too).

Staggering Jewelry Looks

$2.5 million: The value of Jennifer Lopez's Neil Lane jewelry, which included 20-carat diamond drop earrings and three diamond and platinum rings (one with a trendy heart-shaped design).

$2.2 million: The value of Dakota Johnson's Forevermark jewelry, which included a cool 100-carats of diamonds.

And the Priciest Looks of All

$7.2 million: Rough cost of Nicole Kidman's Harry Winston jewelry look, including the jeweler's 82-carat "caftan diamond" bracelet.

$7.5 million: Rough cost of Rita Ora's Lorraine Schwartz jewelry look, including 40-carat, Victorian-inspired diamond drop earrings and a 25-carat champagne diamond ring.

$720,000: Estimated value of Margot Robbie's Van Cleef & Arpels necklace, which was originally created for the Duchess of Windsor (Wallis Simpson) in the '30s.

Someone’s recreated famous Oscars dresses

Someone’s recreated famous Oscars dresses for a cookie catwalk show, and we want to eat them

Because everything is better in edible form, a chef has recreated the most memorable ever Oscars dress as biscuits.

There’s even a teeny tiny catwalk show, and of course, it stars Angelina Jolie’s left leg.

Pastry chef Jansen Chan, who works for the International Culinary Center, crafted them to celebrate the lead up to the biggest date in the awards season diary.

A former architect, the creations combine his two passions: engineering and food.

The biscuits span some of the most memorable dresses of recent years, from Julia Roberts classic monochrome dress from 2001, right up to Lupita Nyong’o’s first ever Oscars dress from 2014.

The creations are iced to perfection with details as intricate as the embroidery on Halle Berry’s dress to Michelle William’s choker. Even the stage and paparazzi are edible. Yum.

Watch the full cookie catwalk show in the video below.

Katy Perry’s Grammys Dress

2015年02月10日

Katy Perry’s Grammys Dress: Stuns In Backless Beaded Frock

Katy took to the red carpet before the 2015 Grammy Awards in an incredibly chic, embellished frock — and we cannot get enough of her look! No matter what the angle, the dress looked amazing on her and we are in love with this look. Are you?

Katy Perry, 30, arrived at the 57th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 8 in an amazing design by Zuhair Murad. Katy told Ryan Seacrest that she stole the look “fresh off the Paris runway” and we can’t blame her! The beaded frock shimmered in the limelight and we couldn’t take our eyes off of her. What do you think of Katy’s Grammy’s look? VOTE below and let us know!

Katy Perry’s Grammys Dress — Backless, Semi-Sheer and Sexy:

After an iconic performance at the halftime show at Super Bowl XLIX, Katy traded in her flashy costumes for one of her chicest looks yet. This semi-sheer frock was an unexpected choice for this fearless fashionista, but she pulled it off effortlessly.

What do YOU think about Katy Perry's Grammy's dress?

LOVE it!So boring!Other:VoteView ResultsPolldaddy.comThis is a much more conservative silhouette compared to Katy’s red carpet history. The high neckline draws attention to her gorgeous features, and the midi length is a very fashion-forward choice. The low back gives this dress just the right amount of sex appeal, making this an absolutely amazing look — and a nice contrast to the high neck in the front.

Katy paired her fringed frock with a pair of statement earrings and silver strappy sandals. A metallic belt synched the dress in at Katy’s tiniest point and showed off her gorgeous physique. A neutral lip, smoky eye and lilac locks polished off this flawless look — I love the way her hair looked against the dress.

What do you think? Did Katy’s dress steal the show, or was it a totally safe choice? VOTE now and let us know!

The Perfect Gown 'Was Fairly Stress-Free'

2015年02月07日

Grammys 2015: Iggy Azalea Says Finding the Perfect Gown 'Was Fairly Stress-Free'

When you’re nominated for Record of the Year and Best New Artist at theGrammy Awards, you better dress to impress. At least that’s Aussie artist Iggy Azalea’s point of view.

Grammys is the one event where I definitely put the most thought into what my dress is going to be,” Azalea, 24, told PEOPLE at a pre-Grammys gala press day with Clive Davis on Thursday. “You don’t want to get the Grammys wrong. You will never live it down.”

And so the hard-working “Fancy” singer began her search for the perfect Grammys gown, though she didn’t have to look far.



Photo: MarieProm formal dresses
“I got a call from Armani, and they said, ‘We would love to sketch some things. What do you love?’ I said, ‘Well, this is making it very easy for me.'” After checking out a few sketches, Azalea picked a gown that communicates “gracefulness,” and now has her fingers crossed.

“It kind of takes the anxiety out of being sat in front of 100 dresses on a rack, knowing that one was specifically designed with you in mind,” she added. “So I feel relaxed about that.”

Feeling relaxed about winning or losing is a whole different story. Azalea says she’s been “powering through the week” and has her eye on the prize — and on her post-Grammys festivities.

“We’re [she and boyfriend, Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young, 29] going to take a vacation after the Grammys. A well-deserved vacation together,” the rapper laughed.

Azalea and Young, who have been dating for more than a year, plan to jet off to Hawaii after the awards show to simply relax.

“He’s been amazing,” Azalea gushed about her beau. “I think your home is what you really put in all the work for. It’s all about having that place that you can go and that person that you can call a family and just have breakfast with and just get up in the morning and just be a human and just laugh.”

Added Azalea: “I can’t imagine if I didn’t have that support in Nick and also in my family. I feel like the success would just feel wasted, completely wasted.”

The Grammys air Sunday, Feb. 8, on CBS at 8 p.m. — and we’ll be here covering all the major moments!

Children’s dress designer’s charity fashion show

2015年02月05日

Children’s dress designer’s charity fashion show comes to Farlington

The beautiful setting of Farlington School is the location for a Fashion Show for a local children’s dress designer on Wednesday 18th March.

Tracey Edwards, owner of Molly Coddle Childrenswear, a childrens clothing company who brings her clothes age newborn up to seven years to the Horsham Carfax Market every Thursday. Many of the designs are hand cut, handmade and hand finished using quirky fabrics which are sourced from around the globe.

The fashion show is a charity event in aid of Beat (charity raising awareness for eating disorders) and aims to promote positive body image.

Molly Coddle Childrenswear prides itself on quality, durability and individuality. Tracey’s designs have many loyal customers both locally and much further afield.

She said: “People appreciate well made imaginative designs, It is important to me that the range of clothes has something to suit all tastes and has a WOW factor”.

Feedback so far on the new Spring fabrics has received much praise especially the British seaside theme which is going to be very popular - beach huts, nautical anchors, sea shells and even mermaids are available.

Tracey is excited about the collaboration with Farlington Fashion Week and says the Fashion Show will be a great location to launch the new Spring 2015 Molly Coddle collection.

Raising money for Beat to promote positive body image is such a fantastic beneficiary because the fashion industry is where many people look for body image inspiration.

Farlington is based near Horsham in West Sussex. It is an independent day and boarding school providing an excellent all-round education for up to 400 girls aged 3-18 with a co-educational Nursery.

Tickets are £5.00 each and include a free gift bag. All money goes to the eating disorder charity Beat.

Please contact the school office on 01403 254967 from 9:00am- 6:00pm Monday-Friday or email the office@farlingtonschool.net

Come along to see Tracey near to the entrance of Swan Walk in Horsham every Thursday from 9am-4pm.

FUNctional Fashion

FUNctional Fashion

10:42 a.m., Feb. 2, 2015--The sparkly pink dress that looked so cute on the mannequin might not look so cute when it bunches up around the legs of a little girl in a wheelchair. And that cool Superman T-shirt might not be very comfortable on the little boy who uses crutches to navigate the preschool playground.

Designing clothing for children with special needs is an area of growing interest and unique challenges.

“No matter what their specific needs are, kids want clothes that are attractive and comfortable and, maybe most important, clothes that reflect their personalities,” says Martha Hall, senior fashion designer in the University of Delaware’s Pediatric Mobility Lab and Design Studio.

Hall plans to introduce these concepts in an experimental course at UD this spring.

The course, “FUNctional Design: Innovation in Childrenswear” (FASH367), will provide students with hands-on learning experiences through course projects targeting both typically developing and special-needs kids from newborn to size six.

The course is a logical outgrowth of Hall’s background in the childrenswear industry and her more recent partnership with researchers in UD’s GoBabyGo Program on wearable technology, in which assistive devices are embedded in clothing.

“Bringing attention to fun and functional fashion for children with special needs has been a game changer,” Hall says. “It’s changing lives and is a challenge that I can't get enough of.”

The students in Hall’s new class will examine the childrenswear industry, analyzing the current market, identifying trends, and forecasting design and marketing opportunities. For their capstone project, they’ll be paired with kids with developmental disabilities and their families.

The students will begin the design process by interviewing the family about the child’s need — for example, difficulty with zippers or sensory issues with fabrics. They will also learn about his or her style through questions about favorite colors, characters, TV shows, and interests, and they’ll take the child’s measurements.

The students will then draw sketches to share with their clients so final designs can be chosen. The last two steps will be initial and final fittings. The finished products will be shared at a fashion show on UD’s Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus during National Public Health Week (April 6-12).

“This process is so important because our goal is for the kids to want to wear the clothing,” Hall says. “And I think it will be a great experience for the students because they seldom have the opportunity to work directly with the person who will wear the garment.”

Emma Zuckerman, a junior in apparel design, is doing a Winter Session independent study with Hall on the design of a garment for a six-year-old girl who has weakness in her hip area.

“The idea is for the piece I’m designing to take the place of a brace,” Zuckerman says. “It will be slightly less supportive but more flexible and can be worn under regular clothing. Our goal is for her to feel comfortable and not stigmatized by wearing an assistive device.”

Hall is seeking families with special-needs children interested in participating in the course. She also has room for several more students in the class (prerequisite FASH220).

Email Hall for more information about participating in the class.

About Martha Hall

Martha Hall holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fashion and apparel studies from the University of Delaware. She is a supplemental faculty member in the Department of Fashion and Apparel Studies and senior fashion designer in the Pediatric Mobility and Design Studio.

Hall has more than 10 years’ experience in the childrenswear industry, and she has also worked as a costume designer. Her interests center on the intersection between health and design, and she enjoys working with interdisciplinary teams of people to address health challenges through design solutions.
