The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was last night and it’s one of my favorite December events. The girls look amazing, the music is fabulous and the themes always blow me away – I don’t know how they keep coming up with so many ideas every year! The 2013 show saw the British Invasion, Birds of Paradise, Parisian Nights, Shipwrecked, Snow Angels and PINK Network, complete with signature angel wings and glittery runway.
Which catwalk theme was your favorite? Did you tune in for the “sexiest night on television” yesterday? Watch the highlight’s below!

I was so thrilled to see Nicole Richie’s curated collection for Joss & Main! I love Nicole’s sense of classic glam and I couldn’t be more excited that she’s showing off her interior design aesthetic too. Her picks for the Joss & MainHolidays in Style collection range from Moroccan poufs to luxurious fabrics and modern mirrors. Mixed in with the classic pieces like velvet side chairs and ikat rugs, is a nod to her playful, witty side with owl statues.
Arriving just in time for the holidays and playing on Nicole’s love of hosting a good party, the collection was handpicked by the celeb herself. Nicole’s fab style is evident in her fashion lines for House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate, and that boho-chic style is mimicked in her curated collection for Joss & Main. “Our house is the one people come to hang,” she told InStyle – and it’s obvious through the comfy couches, clean lines and touches of glam. Have you checked out Nicole’s curated collection for Joss & Main?

It’s an absolute thrill to see Marilyn Monroe as the new face of Chanel No. 5! The blonde bombshell was quoted years ago, saying that the fragrance was the only thing she wore to bed, and from that moment on, it was Chanel No. 5 and Marilyn forever. Fifty-one years later, the sex symbol has become the new face of the fragrance.
Marilyn Monroe: The New Face of Chanel No. 5
“You know, they ask me questions. Just an example: ‘What do you wear to bed? A pajama top? The bottoms of the pajamas? A nightgown?’ So I said, ‘Chanel No. 5,’ because it’s the truth… And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude’. But it’s the truth!”
In a short commercial, Chanel has tied beautiful vintage footage with the sound of her voice, showing the LIFE photoshoot that made Chanel No. 5 as popular as it is today. Accessing lost audio footage, Marilyn’s interviews were the inspiration behind this lovely campaign.
What do you think of Marilyn Monroe as the face of this classic fragrance?

This actress and mom of two is known for her advice, Christmas included! GOOP queen Gwyneth Paltrow sat down with InStyle to talk about all things festive for the holiday season – including presents, shopping and what she loves to wear to a party. See what the face of Hugo Boss’ new fragrance Boss Jour Pour Femme had to say and read the full interview here. xo
Gwyneth Paltrow on Shopping for the Perfect Gift
- How when she starts shopping: I generally start my Christmas shopping at least 2 months before. I like to get things personalized and my gifts usually require some advance time. I’m definitely a planner.
- On the hardest people to shop for: I think men are really hard to shop for, much harder than women. Probably my husband, my brother, my husband’s brothers – they’re usually the hardest.
- On why she loves to personalize gifts: I think it’s really nice that when someone opens a present it has something personal. Last year I gave everyone these beautiful handmade cutting boards, everyone in the family’s name was engraved on one side. I’ve done ceramic plates, jewelry with initials. It takes it from being a normal present to being something that’s actually really special and requires a lot of thought and planning.
- Her go-to outfit for a holiday party: I always feel like I end up wearing something black. I have a number of black jumpsuits that are always very easy because then you don’t have to think about much else.
