A TV host created quite a ruckus lately when she wore a Giants-coloured bikini right in the middle of busy Times Square in New York City.
“Extra” TV correspondent Maria Menounos recently stripped down to a skimpy Giants-coloured bikini in the middle of the busy area in New York City. The 33 year old beauty found herself on the losing end of a bet against her colleague A.J. Calloway Sunday after her beloved New England Patriots fell short of the Super Bowl championship.
According to the terms of the bet, Menounos had to host “Extra” in a red, white and blue bikini - colours that represented the Giants team.
Menounos also wore a pair of furry black Uggs (boots). If Calloway had lost, he would have had to don a Patriots cheerleader outfit.
“I hate bets. I’m never doing this again,” she said as she doffed her white robe. Menounous hosts “Extra” along with Calloway and Mario Lopez. The guys could not help but admire Menounos’ curves.
“God is a Giants fan!” Calloway said. Lopez later wrote on his Twitter page: “My girl @mariamenounos lost a Super Bowl bet & had to wear a NY Giants bikini! Big props. Look great.”
Menounos also said that although she had to wear a Giants-coloured bikini, she still had a lot of respect for the Patriots.
“Sorry, but you know what - I love the Pats for fighting to the bitter end. #PATRIOTpride,” she wrote on her Twitter account.
Model and actress Kelly Brook was recently photographed while on holiday in Brazil wearing a bikini that was not part of her swimwear range. According to reports, Brook is currently designing a swimwear range for New Look.
The 32 year old Brook did not wear one of the bikinis that she designed while on holiday in Brazil with her cousin Sally Griffiths. Instead, she wore a colourful two piece bikini that she reportedly bought from a local beach vendor. Brook and Griffiths were on holiday in Trancoso, a town situated in Porto Seguro in the state of Bahia.
Brook’s bikini had red, purple, green and yellow trimmings - very representative of the colours abundant in Brazil’s local scene. The blonde beauty also wore friendship bracelets around her left ankle and a pair of dark sunglasses.
To update her Twitter followers, Brook also posted a message on her Twitter page. She also shared a photo of herself holding a coconut. She wrote: ‘Breakfast time…. Grab the Coconuts!!’
The former Big Breakfast host was in Brazil on holiday before she focused on work again. She’s set to join the cast of a new sci-fi fantasy film dubbed “Heavy Metal.”
Meanwhile, showbiz kibitzers say that Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden most likely insulted Brook when she praised panelist Alesha Dixon. Holden reportedly said that Dixon had a “brain” - and that kibitzers believe that Holden most probably insinuated that Brook did not.
A former Victoria’s Secret model is set to launch her very own swimwear line. Former Victoria’s Secret angel Selita Ebanks recently disclosed her plans to launch her very own swimwear line.
In a recent party held to celebrate popular shoe designer Christian Louboutin’s 20th anniversary in New York City, Ebanks announced that she will soon release her own swimwear line.
Ebanks’ boyfriend Terrence J was actually the first one to mention the plan but the former bikini and swimwear model seconded it. “She’s launching her own fashion line!” Terrance declared. Selita added: “Oh yeah! I’m launching my own swimwear collection.”
The Caymanian model said that she wanted her swimwear line pieces to be fresh and of good quality. She said that she wanted women who travel a lot and spend time on yachts to be adequately taken care of.
“I just feel like a woman should be able to go from the pool, the yacht, the beach, straight to dinner with her boo and still be fabulous and chic,” she explained.
Ebanks has not divulged the name of her own swimwear line just yet. The Caymanian fashion model, who used to be engaged to Nick Cannon, also said that she will also soon engage in the production and design of accessories, shoes as well as beach cover-ups.
“There’s a long process of learning, you know, what a dart really is, hems, fabric, and testing things out — trial and error,” she said.
Ebanks was a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 2005 to 2008.

On the ‘Style’ page of a leading daily newspaper there is a “one item, six looks, any age” advertisement. The item on parade is a pair of corduroy trousers. The six looks are as follows:
The first model wears the trousers with an interesting leather and wool coat, unusual because the full length sleeves are of black leather whilst the remainder of the coat is in a woollen black and white small check. Over the cords, the coat looks stream-lined and neat whilst the wide front fastening is ideal to present a light coloured plain top underneath.
The second look is called ‘School Run’ and features the corduroy trousers turned-up at the ankles. A shirt and waistcoat complete this casual outfit.
Model number three is wearing the cords on a ‘First Date’. She looks distinctive in a short jacket with shaped waist over a bohemian blouse, whilst a floppy hat finalises her image.
A pair of ordinary corduroy trousers is not usually associated with a night at the opera but with lush velvet in the form of a belted blazer over a glamorous top, then the dress code is accomplished.
The parade of models continues with a fifth look called ‘Meet The Parents’ whereby a high collared short sleeved top looks demure when teamed with a casual, warm looking jacket.
And finally, for shopping, the cords are partnered with a comical, printed knitted jumper.

Leopard is in. Zebra was never out. According to fashion writers, animal print designs on dresses, jackets, accessories etc, go in cycles, and this year it is the turn of the leopard. At one time only super-models could get away with wearing slinky dresses in animal prints but Bet Lynch from Coronation Street eased the way for the general public.
Critics claim that animal prints look vulgar but the general reply is that if you are elegant in the first place, you will still be elegant in a tiger skin jacket or coat. An entire dress or coat will look sophisticated as long as it is made from a quality fabric with a good cut. Nevertheless, even a leopard skin bag or shoes will give zest to any dress or coat.
In the cold winter months, a leopard skin coat or jacket certainly possesses a textural and tactile appeal, being warm, furry and soft. Moreover, the distinctive pattern is eye-catching.
Katie Holmes has been captured on camera recently wearing an animal print coat. Poppy Delevingne has likewise been seen in a jacket.
In 2003, designers such as John Galliano, Roberto Cavalli and Helmut Lang championed animal print fashions and with a seal of approval by the likes of Kate Moss they went main stream.
