BAR REFAELI

International supermodel and Sports Illustrated 2009 cover girl, Bar Refaeli, has landed a new gig.

She will appear in its Rampage brand’s upcoming fall 2009 marketing campaign, replacing Gisele Bundchen as the new face for the young contemporary brand.

You’ll see the fall campaign for the first time in September issues of magazines like Elle, Lucky and Cosmopolitan. Bar will also be in outdoor and online advertising.

Rihanna Makes Comeback at Met Ball, Other Stars Shine

Sure, we love history.

But all fashionistas must admit that, more than sculptures and framed artifacts, we loooove the looks that pop up at the Museum’s Costume Institute Gala, more widely known as the Met Ball.

Apart from short dresses being the order of the night, a few other things caught my attention — for one reason or another.

  1. Rihanna’s red carpet comeback in a superfly tux and cropped pants
  2. Justin Timberlake’s readers
  3. A very preggers Heidi Klum wearing J. Mendel, according to Reuters
  4. Anna Wintour’s patterned ensemble
  5. Victoria Beckham’s polka dot number and her shooooeeesss!
  6. Ciara’s form-fitting, back-baring black on ivory gown
  7. Bar Refaeli’s ruffly metallic, shimmery short dress
  8. Ashley Olsen’s incredibly unflattering gown
  9. Madonna’s costume
  10. Did I mention Rihanna’s red carpet comeback?! :-)
