Fashion News: Victoria's Secret model says ouch to diamonds

August 26, 2011 |  8:17 am

Selita Ebanks Think diamond-encrusted lingerie seems glamorous? Not so, says Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks, who wore the label's $4.5-million jeweled panties and bra down the runway. "Diamonds hurt," she says. She looks more comfortable here, at the Hollywood premiere of "Larry Crowne." [Huffington Post]

Fresh off its blockbuster Alexander McQueen exhibit, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute in New York City has selected two of the most influential women in fashion, Miuccia Prada and the late Elsa Schiaparelli, for next year's exhibit. [Telegraph] 

American Apparel has launched a search for women to model its new XL offerings. "We're looking for fresh faces (and curvaceous bods) to fill these babies out. If you think you've got what it takes to be the next XLent model, send us photos of you," the brand's website says. XL translates to around size 12-14. [Jezebel]

For Fashion's Night Out, the shopping and entertainment extravaganza planned for Sept. 8, the cast of "Glee" has performed in a video cover of David Bowie's "Fashion." They sing and dance dressed in high-style duds -- and FNO T-shirts. My favorite moment comes at the end: cut to coach Sue Sylvester (aka Jane Lynch), with a megaphone. "Now get out and shop," she barks. [Telegraph]

Australian model Ollie Henderson talked to The Cut, and among other things she revealed her motto, which struck me as good words to live by: "One: The answer in life is yes because yes is more exciting and gets you places," she said. "And two: What would you do if you weren't afraid?" [The Cut]
