She might be the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous — and certainly most successful — supermodel of all time, and once we started looking at Gisele Bundchen's editorial career, our wonder and respect for the model/mum/activist/designer/sexy Brazilian only grew. The 32-year-old was discovered at age 13 in a Brazilian shopping mall and went on to become the world's richest supermodel after countless editorials, ad campaigns, and a lucrative stint as a Victoria's Secret Angel. If we thought we might tire of her insanely long, lean body and sun-kissed features, we were wrong. Gisele became a mum in 2010, and thanks to some tummy-covering shoots of late may potentially is pregant again with her second child to hubby Tom Brady. In honour of her being the only model on Forbes magazine's list of 100 of "The World's Most Powerful Women" (for the second consecutive year no less), we put together a serious collection of some her most memorable editorials, beginning with her early days.

Day eight at Cannes has proved just as glamorous as the very first day on the festival's red carpet. On par with Cannes past, this season's stylish set kicked off the glamour Gatsby-style with the film's premiere on day one, and continued to wow with every subsequent premiere and party. Yesterday's round of events were no exception — just click through for jaw-dropping arrivals from the supermodel crew at the Behind the Candelabra premiere, plus Jessica Chastain and even Sharon Stone at the post-premiere parties. It doesn't stop there; inside you'll find every Cannes appearance so far, so just keep clicking — and stay tuned for all the red carpet action right here.
In December, the delivery of Oscar de la Renta's Resort 2014 collection will remind shoppers of the beauty of Spring. The offering, presented Tuesday to small groups of editors in de la Renta's New York showroom, was covered in flowers of all kinds: violet blooms were attached to an acid green evening gown, while red bursts of flora adorned a sleeveless houndstooth peplum top, a half-sleeved cardigan, and an A-line dress. That shape and others, like a balloon skirt in rose petal pink, the Watteau back on a strapless cocktail dress, and the many dresses with bateau necklines, recalled the spirit of '50s couture. But the buoyant colour palette and the optimism were decidedly modern. A look at the collection, here in the gallery. Photo courtesy of Oscar de la Renta
It may have been raining last night at Sydney, but that didn't put a dampener on the glamour on show at Moore Park's Entertainment Quarter for the much anticipated premiere of The Great Gatsby. The official invitation asked "a hint of 1920s" from the A-list guest list, and deliver they did — some getting more into the theme than others. Leading ladies Carey Mulligan and Elizabeth Debicki took a more relaxed approach to the dress code, donning a Nina Ricci bustier and Lanvin trousers, and full-skirted floral Christian Dior respectively. Others, like Emma Freedman, Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Deborah Hutton, got right into character in flapper-esque dresses with plenty of sparkle.
The middle of the road approach looked the chicest to us; best exemplified by Laura Dundovic, Delta Goodrem, Kate Peck, Alice Burdeu and Jesinta Campbell who added who paid subtle tributes to the era via headpieces, antique lace, deco shapes or metallic fabrications. Good work, girls! This is one red carpet round-up you don't want to miss — step inside to zoom in on all the razzle-dazzle!
When it comes to the glamour at the Cannes Film Festival, even the supporting details are on a grander scale. For every ensemble that hits the red carpet, we'd be remiss not to take a closer look at the sparkling jewellery, sleek clutches, and sky-high heels that accompany every gorgeous gown — without these decadent little details, no celebrity arrival would be complete. Just click through to get up close and personal with Chopard, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, and the rest of the luxe line-up of bags, baubles, and heels to hit Cannes.

It's safe to say that Rebecca McGeoch is a touch obsessed with cashmere. The Sydney-born, Hong Kong-based designer launch her luxury knitwear label — Gasparre Cashmere — back in August of 2010. Since then she's set up a desk in her local production factory and spends her days developing ingenious new techniques and refining her vision for everyday luxury.
Rebecca's enthusiasm for quality knits is infectious, and upon seeing her most recent S/S '13-'14 collection (which, btw has been snapped up by Neiman Marcus), we caught the cashmere bug, too. From yarn ratios on labels to the best regions to buy from, she's a true expert. Step inside to a) drool over the latest line-up — which will drop into select boutiques and online come July/August — and b) get schooled in the mystic arts of this luxurious yarn. Your cashmere education starts here. . .

Our love affair with cashmere has stepped up a notch, especially as we now know the brands who do it best, and took a 101 in cashmere care. To keep in line with this week's luxurious knitwear theme, I asked our editorial team (thanks ladies!) to nominate their top two, must-have cashmere picks from the season. You might think that given the heftier price tag, that the POPSUGAR crew stuck to safe colours and classic shapes. Well, you'd be wrong! Heart-motif crews, too-cute-to-cover-up socks, bright-as beanies and luxed-up loungewear; the results were anything but boring. Le-go!
As we stare down the barrel of day eight at the Cannes Film Festival, celebrity glamour shows no signs of slowing. On par with festivals past, this season's stylish set kicked off the glamour Gatsby-style with the film's premiere on day one, and continued to wow with every subsequent premiere and party. Case in point: yesterday's round of premieres drew jaw-dropping arrivals from Joan Smalls, Jessica Chastain, and even Sharon Stone.
