Tyra Banks' Greatest Hits

(spell the last word carefully, please)

True she may still be having Panty Parties on her talk show, but Ms. Banks 'retired' as a model at the 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
A pic from that below, and a few Tyra VS favorites..

Obviously, her hearts are in the right places.

Aside from the talk show, she also hosts and produces the highest-rated show on the CW network.. ok, not exactly hard to do after you get past Smallville and a precious few others, but America's Next Top Model is doing well by any gauge. Like USA Today's.

Ms. Klum, Brunette & New Mom (Again)

Everyone knows her as a blonde for obvious reasons, but I thought she looked quite striking in this picture. The lingerie doesn't hurt.

In case you were wondering, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was filmed last month, and her hostess segments before that.

Ms. Klum and her husband Seal welcomed another child into the world last week.
November 22nd in Los Angeles, she gave birth to Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel. Seal posted on his and Heidi's websites "To our children, a brother. To our parents, a grandson. To my wife and I, a son. To our family, a blessing. He is healthy, beautiful and looks just like his mother."

They also have a son, Henry, 9 months, and a daughter, Leni, 2, from a previous relationship of Ms. Klum's with former boyfriend and Formula One racer, Flavio Briatore . She's told the media that Seal has treated Leni as if she were his own and he refers to Leni as his daughter.
Here's People Magazine's article. If you're looking for news on the new arrival, on Project Runway or a voluminous gallery of photos which you can send as E-Greeting cards, check out her home page.

I do believe there may suddenly be more of a demand for Tartan lingerie ensembles.

True story? Only because I have a couple of flannel boxers that would pass for Tartan designs, my girlfriend's curves were ahead of the curve. She bought some Tartan -looking bras and panties that sort-of match last winter.

So, a couple VS designers are taking lunch outdoors by a street of brownstones with wrought iron fences in front of them one day.. (hey- IDK, it could have been designed that way):

They've been taking (it) off for years; might as well look the part..

You've often wondered how Vicky's decides who gets the honor of filling the year's diamond bra? Maybe if your shoe comes off earlier in the evening, you don't trip and keep on smiling as Karolina Kurkova did it's yours (for all we know it is. In the credits two 'diamond bra handlers' were asking for the bra back, and she said it was hers to keep since she was wearing it- what were the going to do, take it off of her?
Damn shame the show ended about then..

If your girlfriend and you are watching The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show together, and the only time she slaps the back of your head is when you suggest, based on her response to Justin Timberlake that she might like it if you shaved you head to a similar hairstyle as his, it's been a good night.

2006 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on CBS Tonight

Tune in and get a kick out of it. (10 Eastern / 9 Central)
The 2005 show finale above, including Tyra Banks' last appearance, and Heidi Klum's first since her daughter Leni was born (more about Ms. Klum, her husband Mr. Seal and a new addition to their family later this week.)

A few highlights from last year:

Justin Timberlake will be wasting his time if he sings anything about bringing sexy back; with these ladies, it never left.
Hmm. CBS. Justin Timberlake. Hott girls wearing practically nothing. Do you get the feeling they'll keep his hands far away from the models while on camera?

Remember: Ms. Lima is among those who'll be on The 2006 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show tomorrow night on CBS (10 Eastern / 9 Central). Justin Timberlake is the special guest performer. I was going to say 'entertainment', but in light of the actual event, we know that's not accurate.

Or, it was, until she unzipped. Amazing how much warmer these light-weight jackets are these days.

My Dad Still Misses The Show JAG

He used to watch that show every Friday night on CBS.*
After looking over these now-famous pics of Catherine Bell from the May 2000 FHM magazine, I may know why.

She was a guest star this past week on
Law & Order: SVU - opposite Bob Saget(!)

She's relaunching her official website soon, too.
Maybe with a few new pictures?

*BTW, JAG's been off CBS how many years and they still have it listed on their website? Do their IT guys spend their time surfing the web for sites like this one?)

Miho Yoshioka - White Lingerie & Black Lingerie

Angelic white undies, or a Hott Black bra, lace camisole and panties? Watch until you've decided for yourself. And, Thank You, You Tube. Worth every penny of that $1.65 billion.

And, since I know you'll ask, the song is Santa's Island, by the Hawaiian group Kalapana. I wonder if they ever thought the song would be used in this way? I'm guessing that would be a No.

It's fun, it's um.. colorful! And, it keeps those watching you undress - or those helping you undress - guessing.

Alessandra Ambrosio: What A Site!

0142  aa 50
Pretty much says it all.

Almost all. In case you were unaware, Ms. Ambrosio has her own official web site at www.alessandraambrosio.com.
Quite content-rich, not just with the expected galleries and news, but personal pics, video dairies, news, forums she reads and in which on rare occasion even posts. Before you click, make sure you have Macromedia Flash Player 7, and although you may not normally want to allow pop ups, you may wish to allow them in this case. Check back with me in a few months when you find your way out of there.

Tyra Banks Invites You To Her Panty Party

As her show's websites says:

Wednesday, November 15th

"Panty Party"

Are you fed up with bulges and bumps created by your undergarments? Tyra and her entire audience strip down to their bras and panties to reveal what real women wear underneath their clothes. Underwear expert
Alison Deyette and gynecologist Dr. Lisa Masterson offer advice on finding the right fit, address underwear myths and give healthful, helpful advice. Plus, Tyra sends three men who are self-confessed “underwear experts” out on the street to see if they can really undress a woman with their eyes. Plus, “American Idol’s” Kimberly Locke shows off the newest collection from Cacique, a lingerie line geared towards sexy, full-figured women!

Let's review: Tyra Banks knows a her way around a pair of panties after all that time with Vicky's;
She'll strip to her bra and panties on TV; Kimberly Locke will probably be wearing less than the picture at left; an entire audience of women in their underwear.. well, ok, that could be a mixed blessing, but I'll brave it if you will.

As they say, check your local listings to see when and where it airs.

Whose Bra Beat Jordan?

from Yahoo! News UK & Ireland:

Whose Bra Beat Jordan?

'You'd think that in a bra battle of any sort, Jordan would win hands down. But apparently not. The busty star was beaten by none other than TV presenter Lorraine Kelly in a charity auction.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Nice one.

Both ladies had offered up their own bras for sale at the Brighton Ball auction to raise money for breast cancer.

Jordan's sexy Agent Provocateur bra, size 34FF, fetched a measly £2,000, whereas Lorraine's modest 36B brassiere sold for a whopping £3,100.

Who'd have thought it?

A chuffed Lorraine said: "I was delighted but surprised that my wee bra, which is a lot smaller that Jordan's, sold for so much.

"But good on her for joining in."

The auction raised £40,000 for charity.

Ms Kelly also came third in a poll for best celebrity real breasts last month.

Didn't she do well?'

Many guys would have thought it: who says bigger is always better?

P.S. FWIW, when I ran the above post through Blogger's spell-check, it kept insisting I should replace the name 'Jordan' with the word 'joyriding'.

Make up your own joke, if you haven't already..

Unless, of course, you happen to work in a Lingerie Shoppe.

By the way, how often have you said this at work:
'May I unbutton your panties for you?'
