Fashion News: How Miranda Kerr got bikini-ready

August 4, 2011 |  8:17 am

How on earth did model Miranda Kerr get into not just good shape but ready-to-strut-a-catwalk-in-a-bathing-suit shape only six months after having a 10-pound baby, as I posted earlier? The 28-year-old says that other than sticking to a yoga regimen (and basically healthy eating), nothing unusual. She gained 40 pounds with the pregnancy but lost them quickly. And thanks to good genes and Kora Organic Body lotion, she looked trim and stretch-mark free when she walked in a Sydney fashion show on Wednesday. [Telegraph] 

Lea Michele in Harper's BazaarLea Michele is one of the small screen's hottest stars, thanks to her role as Rachel in "Glee." But the Broadway babe (she's already conquered the Great White Way in "Spring Awakening" and other shows) tells Harper's Bazaar in its September issue that many an agent had told her she wasn't pretty enough to make it. "Get a nose job," she says they told her. Now the laugh is on them. And we're glad she didn't give in. [Harper's Bazaar]

Sarah Palin's  beauty salon in Wasilla, Alaska, is the subject of a two-part special set to air on TLC in September.  Really. "Big Hair Alaska" visits the Beehive Beauty Shop, "where the personalities of the owner and her staff are as big as the hairstyles they create,” according to TLC. [People]
