Olivia Palermo was joined by Nicky Hilton and Emmy Rossum for the New Yorkers For Children annual Spring dinner, presented by Valentino, last night in NYC. Olivia, who got into the spirit of the season by donning a bright yellow Katie Ermilio gown, had boyfriend Johannes Huebl on her arm for the charitable evening out. Nicky was accompanied by boyfriend James Rothschild, and models Erin Heatherton and Hilary Rhoda were also on hand to attend the annual event that aims to support youth in foster care.
Emmy has been putting in time in her hometown after wrapping the current season of her hit show, Shameless, with the season finale airing on Sunday night. She is not only a small-screen star, but is also pursuing a career in music, and she put her skills to use signing the national anthem at the Mets' opening day at Citi Field last week.
Halle Berry made her first public appearance since her pregnancy news at a United Nations World Food Program event in NYC on Saturday. She was joined by Michael Kors, who cohosted the event with Halle, as she displayed her baby bump in a black dress. At the event, Halle revealed that she was surprised to find herself pregnant again. She said, "I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it's been a big surprise and the most wonderful." This will mark Halle's second child — she is mom to 5-year-old Nahla — and her first baby with fiancé Olivier Martinez.
Erin Heatherton bared her bikini body for a Victoria's Secret photo shoot in St. Barts today. She sported a number of sexy swimsuits while posing for the camera and made the most of her downtime by stretching and playing with a crew member's baby in between takes. Erin's fellow Angels are also in town for similar shoots. Alessandra Ambrosio mixed work and play on the beach yesterday, and Candice Swanepoel worked the camera earlier this week.
While Erin's duties with Victoria's Secret have been keeping her busy, she's also landed another fashion campaign. Erin was recently named as the new face of XOXO clothing, following in the footsteps of other big-name models like Miranda Kerr, Tyra Banks, and Claudia Schiffer.
All those behind-the-scenes looks at couture ateliers, photo shoots, and runway shows aren't for naught: Erin Heatherton says they can be prime training ground for people who want to work in the industry.
"My advice to young people who want to get into the fashion industry is definitely to take advantage of all the media that's available now," she says in a video chronicling her shoot for XOXO's Spring 2013 campaign. "You can really get a closer look at the fashion industry than you ever could these days with media outlets, videos online. And it's a great way to kind of prep yourself for the fashion world."
A closer look at Heatherton at work in the video below.
Angels Adriana Lima and Erin Heatherton kicked off the launch party for Victoria's Secret's new fitness line at NYC's Herald Square yesterday. The fiercely fit models showed off the brand's latest gear with right hooks, jabs, and a display of their fun personalities. During the event, Erin shared a picture of Adriana on Instagram "showing her how it's done" as she taped Erin into a sparkling black pair boxing gloves and the two sparred in style. This is the girls' second modeling stint together this month after they also teamed up to take on the catwalk at Dosso Dossi’s fashion show last week in Istanbul, where they modeled the Turkish designer’s Spring 2013 collection.
Erin Heatherton got sexy in a bikini during a photo shoot in Miami yesterday. The Victoria's Secret model wore a blue striped suit, a matching sarong, and mirrored aviator sunglasses as she posed in the water and on the sand. Erin isn't the only VS Angel who has been spotted in a two-piece recently. Earlier this week, Alessandra Ambrosio took bikini photos for the brand in St. Barts, and last week Candice Swanepoel got in front of the cameras as well. It's their fellow Angel Miranda Kerr who is in the running for best bikini body of 2012, though, so make sure to vote!
Erin Heatherton struck a pose while modeling an assortment of Victoria's Secret swimwear in St. Barts yesterday. She appeared to be enjoying the warm temperatures while working in and out of the water for the retailer's upcoming catalog. It's been an exciting year for Erin; in addition to walking the catwalk at this year's Victoria's Secret holiday runway show, she also made our list of the hottest bikini bodies of 2012! We're recapping the year's hottest photos and headlines, including Erin's breakup with Leonardo DiCaprio, so be sure to check back with us often for our Best of 2012 coverage.
Things move along swimmingly for the first 30 seconds of this video, in which Victoria's Secret Angels sing the classic holiday carol "Deck the Halls" — but after that, it's a different story altogether.
The video features Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson, and Erin Heatherton decorating a Christmas tree, setting out presents, and trimming a room with bows and garlands — tasks apparently easier than remembering the words to the song. "Deck the halls of boughs of honey," Kroes sings, realizing the mistake before laughing and saying, "Let's deck it with honey!"
"We don't sing this Down Under," Kerr says of her inability to remember all the words. "We sing 'Santa Baby.'"
Whatever the case for their struggle, it's hard not to give the Angels an A for effort. See why in the video below.
