Victorias Secret Fashion Show

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard reports that Victoria’s Secret bras are toxic.

They’ve been several media stories and online posts  claiming the store’s underwear contains formaldehyde.

However, the retailer has issued a “rumor control” statement denying  the whole thing.

Victoria’s Secret does not add formaldehyde to its bras, and multiple, independent tests confirm that Victoria’s Secret bras are formaldehyde-free or contain only traces which are significantly lower than allowed by the most stringent textile guidelines in the world. Dermatologists and various authorities all confirm that even those individuals who are allergic to formaldehyde would not have a reaction at this low level, despite public claims by a Cleveland law firm.

Call me a cynic but I’m still not completely convinced.

Could they have launched their buy-one-bra-get-the-other-50%-off offer simply to get rid of the tainted bras?

If your guy begins spending loads of time on his mobile phone, you may be able to blame MediaFLO.

They’ve just struck a deal with Victoria’s Secret to launch the lingerie store’s 24/7 mobile channel.

That’s right; your bf will be able to tune into “VICTORIA’S SECRET TV,” a new, dedicated never-goes-off-air channel that gives viewers an all-access pass to the 2008 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on their mobile phones.

It includes behind-the-scenes pre-show coverage and a broadcast of the full show on December 3.

The legendary Fontainebleau Miami Beach is rolling out its red carpet for tonight’s highly anticipated unveiling of its $1 billion dollar facelift.

A roster of VIPs will pick up where suave Hollywood legends left off.

Tonight, singer and song writer Robin Thicke will entertain a star-studded audience including Sean “DIDDY” Combs, A-Rod, Terrence Howard, Chloe Sevigny and Venus and Serena Williams.

The momentous occasion continues tomorrow night with the taping of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show featuring musical guest Usher.

Attendees will dine on dishes inspired by the property’s new signature restaurants, ScarpettaTM and Gotham Steak®, before heading over to the seven-story set erected around Fontainebleau’s pool-scape.

That’s the good life!

Victoria’s Secret has a new Angel.

She’s Marisa Miller.

You probably recognize her from the covers of Vogue, Self, Shape and of course Maxim where she held down the number one spot for the 2008 Hot 100.

She has been featured in campaigns for such names as Tommy Hilfiger, J.Crew, Andrew Marc and of course Victoria’s Secret. 

Signed to a multi-year contract, she joins fellow Angels including Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Selita Ebanks and Karolina Kurkova.

Marisa Miller will make her first appearance as the newest Angel at Victoria’s Secret store at Herald Square to give away personalized autograph fragrances to her fans at 12:00pm.

Woman sues Victoria’s Secret claiming thong injury

LOS ANGELES – A woman who says she was hurt by her thong panties when a metal clip flew off and hit her in the eye has sued Victoria’s Secret, saying in a TV interview on Thursday that the injury caused her “excruciating pain.” Macrida Patterson, a 52-year-old Los Angeles traffic officer, told NBC’s “Today” show that she suffered cuts to her cornea from the small piece of metal that had been used to secure a rhinestone heart onto the blue thong.

Really.
