Sir Terry Leahy-backed lingerie brand Gilda & Pearl makes store debut in Mayfair

| | No comments yet | Tags:

A luxury London lingerie brand backed by former Tesco boss Sir Terry Leahy and a consortium of retail veterans is to open its first store in Conduit Street, Mayfair.

Gilda & Pearl, which counts model Suki Waterhouse and actress Emma Watson among its fans, will open its doors next month, having existed as  concessions in department stores including Selfridges until now.

The atelier will offer custom designs and fittings.

Leahy, who left Tesco in 2011 after 14 years at the grocer’s helm, will offer advice to the brand. He is joined by former Asos finance chief Jon Kamaluddin and ex-Best Buy chief Bob Willett. The investors have ploughed around £300,000 into the business.

The brand, founded in 2008, notched up revenues of £150,000 last year and plans to grow in the UK through shops and online as well as in the UAE, China and the US

Products range from a £45 garter to a £1000 kimono and it offers tailor-made designs and fittings.

Richard Hinzel, managing director of Gilda & Pearl, said: “We will treat [the new store] as a testing ground and will look to open a standalone shop in the future.”

Lingerie model who ‘wrecked’ her body trying to cover a tiny tattoo

| | No comments yet | Tags:

A lingerie model admits she ruined her body as well as her career prospects by having a tattoo on her stomach.

But rather than have the body art removed, Shelly-Ann Willetts, 23, from Birmingham, instead tried to improve the appearance by covering it with another tattoo – with disastrous results.

‘The tattoo that was originally meant to be covered up is starting to come through, it looks horrible, it’s a mess,’ she said on the latest episode of Spike show Tattoo Disasters.

Lingerie model Shelly-Ann hated this rose tattoo she had to cover up a previously disliked etching

Now she is happy with her third tattoo which she says is a ‘work of art’

‘I have absolutely wrecked my body. I am turning work down, I can’t stand the sight of it,’ she added.

The beauty queen, who was crowned Miss Birmingham International this year, first had a small heart and stars etched on to her stomach when she was 19 but she was unhappy with how it looked.

‘The drawing I had when I went in and what I got were two different things. A two-year-old could have drawn it, I thought “what have I done?”‘ she said after getting the first small tattoo.

She hated it so much, she thought her only solution was to cover it up with another tattoo – this time a larger rose design.

But she was again unhappy with how it looked and when she landed her dream career as a lingerie model, she found the tattoo was costing her work.

‘A bad tattoo is the breaking point of whether you have a job or not,’ she said.

With her blonde tresses in relaxed waves, the reality star looked like a total bombshell. Although it’s a mystery to us how you’d actually get this on…just putting on socks can throw us off balance!

Ashley then shared a snap of her dewy make-up, with a red lip and glowing skin. This is the ultimate barely there look that’s perfect for warmer weather. Or for when you’re just hanging out in your underwear!

And let’s take a moment to gawp at her seriously shiny eyes. Tell us your secrets! There must be something in the water in Chelsea.

The reality-star looks great whether she’s all glammed up or showing off her natural beauty.

Swedish Retailer Lindex Enlists Employees To Model For Lingerie Campaign

| | No comments yet | Tags:

The Swedish retailer has just launched their latest underwear campaign, but instead of hiring professional fashion models, they enlisted their own employees.

In the image, the women are wearing jeans and bras, so as to show off the line, and their hair and makeup is left natural. And though they may not be professional models, you’d never be able to tell; each woman looks absolutely stunning.

The women are also featured on the website and in an accompanying video, making the campaign a lot more personal than we’re used to (which is awesome!). It’s also nice to see models of different sizes (though, we admit it’s not a huge range) in their products.

Lindex also used employees for their “proper fit” collection in 2014.

But they’re not the first label to stray from norm. Last year, Dear Kate launched a campaign featuring female CEOs modelling their underwear, and American Eagle’s lingerie offshoot, Aerie, decided to stop retouching their images.

It’s always nice to see fashion brands adopt a more inclusive attitude! Because, if we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that fashion is for everyone, regardless of size, shape or colour

Jennifer Lopez Leaves Her Undergarments at Home

Move over Khaleesi. There is a new mother of dragons. Jennifer Lopez brought her signature brand of sexy to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, wearing one of the most revealing gowns she’s worn in recent memory. (She also proved she’s a magician with double-sided tape.)

Jennifer Lopez Met Gala 2015

The 45-year-old star — whose body defies gravity — stunned in a red ombré dress featuring a sequin dragon design (her take on the theme “China: Through the Looking Glass”) that kept her naughty bits covered, plus, a curve-loving mermaid silhouette and a tulle train speckled with sequins that looked to be in the shape of flames.

And she went for the full-on matchy-matchy moment, adding a red crystal Swarovski clutch and even fiery eyeshadow. She completed her look with sleek, straight strands and a soft lip.

The singer’s date for the evening: Designer Donatella Versace, who also showed off her figure in a netted turtleneck gown with sequin embellishments.

Ballet Repertory Theatre audience picks their favorites

| | No comments yet | Tags:

The dancers at Ballet Repertory are lacing their toe shoes to the steps of audience favorites for their 25th anniversary this weekend.

Normally tied to a theme, this year organizers asked audience members to name their favorite original productions for the annual show.

Artistic director Katherine Giese pared down 25 choices to seven being performed next weekend at the KiMo Theatre.

“It’s not the classics like ‘Sleeping Beauty’ or ‘Swan Lake,’” Giese said, adding she chose the finalists based on variety and available dancers.

“There were some surprises,” she said. “I was surprised that people remembered things from so far back. I was also surprised that so many of my own pieces were voted on and I was very honored by it.”

Giese’s “Oblácek” (2010) opens the program with the Czech word for “fluffy, like clouds,” she said.

“The girls are in white ball gowns and the men are in tuxes. The way the dresses moved influenced the choreography. It was all about being pretty.”

Celia Dale’s “Triptych” (1996) is a more modern piece based on Medieval religious paintings.

Beth Griffin’s “Macabre” (2011) features music by Saint-Saëns based on a poem by the French symbolist writer Henri Cazalis. Expect dancing minions and a skeleton or two.

Giese’s “Woken, Wishing, Willing” (1999) is set to music by the English/Australian music project Dead Can Dance. Comprised of four dancers clad in leotards and slit pants, it’s an earthy piece, she said.

“People like to call it the jungle piece,” she added.

Choreographer Alex Ossadnik set “Pierrot” (1997) to the first movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. Designed as a solo, it features a masked male dancer struggling to break free of confinement.

Giese set her “Actaeon” (2011) to the music of Philip Glass. Based on the mythological Greek herdsman and the huntress Diana, it opens with a hunting party celebration. Giese said she was inspired to create this contemporary, barefooted dance after seeing Martha Graham’s dance troupe. Graham has been called the mother of modern dance.

The program ends with Ossadnik’s “Seasons of Buenos Aires” (2008) set to the music of Argentinian tango composer Astor Piazzolla. Ossadnik was inspired to create the piece after watching the 1969 film “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?” starring Jane Fonda. The movie is about a 1930s dance marathon.

“It’s a very artsy piece,” Giese said. “Somebody actually called it performance art. The dancers are dressed in black sexy dresses and they have numbers on their backs like they’re in a contest. (It’s) the idea that they were willing to do that just for food because the times were so desperate.”

The dancers will perform the piece on the bare stage, with the back doors open to reveal the street

Kylie exposes herself while promoting own lingerie

The pint-sized popstrel suffered an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction as she showcased her new underwear range for Sloggi.

She ended up flashing her own smalls as she sat down to discuss designing the kecks with a room full of journalists in Berlin.

Onlookers could see right up the 46-year-old’s dusty pink dress as she sat in a purple bucket chair holding a microphone.

Whether the Aussie singer just wanted to show fans what they’d be able to purchase remains unknown, but Kylie was looking radiant at the presscall.

The former Voice UK coach flaunted her pins in her wrap-around dress, which she accessorised with a tan-coloured belt.

Her blonde locks were also styles in loose curls with her make up matching her neutral outfit.

Kylie recently turned down the opportunity to reprise her role in Neighbours as Charlene Mitchell as part of the soap’s 30th anniversary.

She originally played the tomboy mechanic between 1986 and 1988 but failed to reunite with her on-screen son Daniel (Tim Phillips) for the milestone birthday

Base Range’s Triple-Threat Lingerie Is Comfortable, Sexy

| | No comments yet | Tags: ,

When it comes to eco-friendly fashion, the average shopper probably doesn’t consider lingerie. Unless your top drawer is full of fancy designer bras and bustiers, most of us rotate through simple cotton and silk pieces. While those might seem like “safe” materials, lingerie is often produced via fast, large-scale model that is anything but environmentally friendly.

Base Range is slowing things down, opting to produce its soft, label-free pieces with 100 percent sustainable fabrics in Portugal and Turkey. Founders Marie-Louise Mogensen and Blandine de Verdelhan use a mix of high-quality bamboo and Lycra for their bras, panties, and bodysuits, which lack accouterments and lay flat against the skin. They also offer simple basics like organic cotton dresses, sweatshirts, and joggers. In shades of black and nude with pops of leopard print, there’s also a sexy ’90s vibe throughout—so you can bet we’re already hooked.
