December 7, 2011 |  9:02 am

First newbie Victoria's Secret angel Karlie Kloss appeared nude in Vogue Italia, which declared her the new "body," as we said recently. Now fellow angel Miranda Kerr -- she who wore the $2.5-million jeweled "fantasy" bra in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in November -- appears nude in Industrie magazine. The nude photos accompany Lee Carter's interview with her. [The Cut]

Whitney Thompson"America's Next Top Model" winner Whitney Thompson (from season 10) is launching a members-only online dating site for "plus-size" women such as herself called "The Big and the Beautiful." Of course, by any non-modeling, non-acting standard, Thompson, at left,  doesn't look all that "plus." [New York Post]

We know some people are really, really into Angry Birds, but Teija Vesterbacka actually wore her feelings about the game on her sleeve, metaphorically. In reality, Vesterbacka, the wife of an executive with Rovio, the company behind the popular game, wore a sleeveless evening gown cleverly designed and draped to portray one of the birds. The red gown flowed from a bodice whose right side looked like the head of one of the birds, beak pointed down. She didn't wear it to a costume event; she wore it to a Finnish state gala. [Kotaku]

In a collaboration with jewelry designer Martin Katz, DKNY decked out a one-of-a-kind bottle of Golden Delicious scent with 14-karat gold, 183 yellow sapphires, 2,700 white diamonds and a 2.43-carat yellow canary diamond. Net proceeds from the million-dollar bottle will go (when it's sold) to the Action Against Hunger charity. [Huffington Post]

Burlesque star and woman-about-town Dita von Teese says she always does her own hair and makeup, and it has taken years to perfect the routine. "Practice is everything when it comes to beauty," she said in a live chat with  [People]
