Beyonce covers up in maternity leggings

Beyonce covers up in maternity leggings
Beyonce helped cover up her growing baby bump in style this week as she stepped out in New York.

The singer sported a pair of maternity leggings with a 1980s-style blue and orange pattern, to help brighten up an otherwise black outfit.

On her top half she chose to wear an oversized black jumper and jacket, as well as a chic pair of sunglasses, despite the winter weather.

Beyonce and her unborn baby have been the source of much media speculation in the past few weeks, with rumours circulating as to whether she is really pregnant.

In a YouTube clip from the set of her video for Countdown, the US style icon has sparked headlines by hinting that she could be giving birth sooner than expected.

The wife of Jay Z is shown holding up the September 23rd edition of the New York Daily News and says that she is in fact six months pregnant at this point.

The secret ingredients in a woman's bag

The secret ingredients in a woman's bag
A new survey released this week has revealed the secret items kept in women's handbags.

Much like the famous bag belonging to Mary Poppins, the study by AnjliLondon.com has found that ladies are prone to carrying around some unlikely contents.

A quarter of women carry around spare underwear, while two per cent cart around leftover food. One respondent in particular even admitted to finding a rotten fish in the bottom of her bag.

This is hardly surprising as 68 per cent of British females reportedly never empty out their handbags.

Some 80 per cent of women carried around essentials such as a mobile phone, purse, makeup, keys, painkillers and an umbrella, with 27 per cent keeping hair straightners in their bag and four per cent tucking away a pair of chicken fillet bust enhancers.

A spokesperson for the fashion brand joked that there are "things that may make perfect sense to you but would complete baffle a stranger" if they were to delve into the tardis that can be a woman's bag.

Miley Cyrus shows off underwear in sheer dress

Miley Cyrus shows off underwear in sheer dress
Miley Cyrus has come under fire after wearing two sheer outfits in the space of a week.

The 19-year-old singer dressed in what appeared to be a conservative polka dot tea dress and flat shoes recently; however it left little to the imagination and due to its sheer fabric her underwear could clearly be seen through it.

With her predominantly young fan base, the US star has been criticised for wearing revealing clothes and was also berated for wearing a sheer white blouse over a black lacy bra for a photo shoot this weekend.

Miley posed for photographer Adam Bouska for the No H8 campaign and was snapped with duct tape over her mouth and the slogan painted across her face.

Despite the teen icon arguing that this recent exhibitionism was for a good cause, the Hannah Montana star has been slated in the press for failing to be an appropriate role model for her teenage fans.

Kimberley Wyatt chose an odd form of leg wear this weekend while performing in Birmingham at this year's Clothes Show Live.

The former Pussycat Doll took to the main stage wearing one-legged tights, as well as a silver and black leotard and interesting yellow cape.

Her bare leg was also adorned with star stickers and her hair bore flashes of orange and pink.

The 28-year-old singer was performing with her group Her Majesty and the Wolves and wowed the crowd with energetic dance routines and provocative poses.

Other celebrities to feature at the fashion event included Alexandra Burke, who turned up in a black leather dress and matching heels.

Blonde Rihanna raises the roof in fishnet tights

Blonde Rihanna raises the roof in fishnet tights
Rihanna gave an impressive rendition of her many hits at the Jingle Ball, held at the O2 Arena in London this weekend.

The We Found Love singer performed in fishnet tights, tiny black shorts and a houndstooth wrap as she engaged in energetic dance routines with a series of hunky backing dancers.

She also used the opportunity to show off her new cropped blonde hairstyle, which may or may not be a wig.

Wigs have become a popular way for celebrities to update their looks recently, with stars such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Jessie J all admitting to indulging in the odd coloured hairpiece.

The festive event in London also witnessed a range of other pop performances, including a lively set from Olly Murs, a glittering rendition from Jason Derulo and a crowd-pleasing appearance from The Wanted.

Brits want socks this Christmas

Brits want socks this Christmas
Brits are filling their Christmas wish-lists with classic gifts and home comforts this year, according to a new survey from TK Maxx.

The retailer has found that 27 per cent of men want to receive socks, which could be partly to do with colder winter weather.

A further 26 per cent agreed that they were looking to receive men's underwear to help stock up on these essentials.

Women polled in the survey revealed that they too are looking for legwear, with 22 per cent asking for socks or tights.

A quarter of ladies also admitted that they were looking for kitchen items, such as pots and pans, perfect for home cooking during the winter months.

Researchers suggested that Britons are after practical gifts this Christmas in response to a turbulent financial year which may have seen many families cutting back on essential items.

Jane Fonda looks svelte in leggings and leotard
After gaining a huge fan base back in the 60s, model and actress Jane Fonda showed she's still got an enviable figure in an appearance on The Today Show.

Jane wore a red and black striped leotard, accompanied by black leggings, a belt and some red legwarmers.

The 73-year-old looked svelte as she demonstrated a variety of her famous exercise moves from her popular 80s workout videos.

She performed exercise moves with the hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee Gifford while also promoting her new book, Prime Time: Love, Health, Sex, Fitness, Friendship, Spirit - Making the Most of all of Your Life

The screen icon rose to fame in the 60s fantasy flick Barbarella and has since made a name for herself within the fitness industry, retiring in 1995 but more recently returning last year to market her advice and routines to older audiences.

Sarah Jessica Parker coordinates with coloured tights

Sarah Jessica Parker coordinates with coloured tights
Sarah Jessica Parker is well known for her on-screen character's love of fashion, and by the look of her outfit choice on a recent walk with her children she's no different in real life.

She's known for her quirky dress sense and impeccable style so it should come as no surprise that Sarah Jessica Parker has started dressing her twins to match her outfits.

The actress, famous for playing Carrie in Sex and the City, stepped out in New York wearing a beige outfit with stand-out turquoise blue opaque tights.

Her bright legwear was perfectly coordinated with her twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha's matching blue raincoats, complementing each other brilliantly.

Sarah Jessica's look was a bold choice for the 46-year-old, as earlier this week she told reporters that she was trying to dress more "appropriately for her age" now that she is in her mid-forties.

The star can next be seen on the big screen in the film New Year's Eve alongside an all-star cast including Ashton Kutcher and Hilary Swank.

Adele finally emerges in black leggings

Adele finally emerges in black leggings
Adele has emerged from her London home looking happy and healthy after her recent operation.

The singer was seen carrying her pet pooch wearing black leggings and an oversized navy sweater, prompting speculation that the 23-year-old has lost weight.

She is currently taking time out of the limelight, after being given strict instructions from doctors to rest her powerful voice after vocal chord surgery.

Despite taking a break, Adele has recently received six nominations ahead of the prestigious Grammy Awards, including nods for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.

The star has been forced to cancel her North America tour due to the illness, however her rider for the event has been released into the press, showing that the down-to-earth Brit likes only the best European alcohol and junk food in her dressing room.

Abbey Crouch plays peek-a-boo with scarf

Abbey Crouch plays peek-a-boo with scarf
Abbey Crouch found an unusual way to hide from photographers this weekend while out in Liverpool with her new baby girl.

The 25-year-old attempted unsuccessfully to cover her face with her leopard print scarf, but could clearly be spotted carrying her nine-month-old daughter Sophia Ruby, in a matching animal print baby-grow.

Abbey, who is married to England striker Peter Crouch, chose the occasion to also cover up her post-pregnancy figure in a black maxi skirt and red leather jacket, during the mother-daughter stroll.

Much like Victoria and Harper Beckham the pair have been inseparable lately, travelling everywhere together, including to magazine and modelling photo shoots.

The Crouch family are preparing for their first Christmas together; however Abbey told The Mirror that they are already getting overexcited.

"Sophia is adorable but unfortunately she's already opened all her Christmas presents," the WAG joked.

Obamas head to church in opaque tights
President Barack Obama and his family stepped out this weekend from the White House to St John's Episcopal Church today, holding hands and smiling through the cold winter temperatures.

Michelle and the girls displayed their love of legwear, with the first lady wearing a cream ensemble and black opaque tights.

Daughter Malia opted for a pair of maroon tights and a coral pink coat, while Sasha chose to wear purple tights and a smart black coat.

During the sermon, the Reverend Dr Luis Leon discussed Obama and argued that he would be an instigator of change in the US.

The Obama family have in the past been criticised for not attending church regularly, however since moving to Washington in 2009 they have attended several different services.

St John's Church opposite the White House has been visited by every president for at least one service since it was founded in 1815.

Robert Downey Jr reveals Calvin Klein underwear

Robert Downey Jr reveals Calvin Klein underwear
Robert Downey Junior made a fashion faux pas by flashing a glimpse of his boxers at the premiere of his new film.

The actor wore a mismatched grey and black suit but it was his red Calvin Klein men's underwear that really caught the attention of photographers, as they could clearly be seen poking out above his trousers.

While teenagers are often famed for having low slung trousers and exposing their underwear, the 46-year-old seemed oblivious to his error while posing for photos at the Rome premiere of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

The father-to-be, who plays the lead character in the film, recently revealed to Fox News that he was embarrassed to cross dress for a scene in the movie while his producer wife looked on.

Robert said: "I keep thinking, is my wife sitting behind the monitor and watching me cross dress on purpose?"

Louis Walsh wears tights in homage to Cheryl Cole

Louis Walsh wears tights in homage to Cheryl Cole
X Factor judge Louis Walsh is no stranger to controversy, and his embrace of acts such as Jedward certainly prove he has a quirky side.

However, there were certainly a few eyebrows raised when the former Westlife manager donned tights, a wig and purple dress to imitate Cheryl Cole.

Louis featured alongside Alan Carr in the Heat Magazine's bumper Christmas issue.

The Chatty Man decided to mimic glamour model turned bodybuilder Jody Marsh in his pictures, wearing nothing more than a glittery gold bikini and striking a bodybuilding pose.

Louis made every effort to replicate the his former X Factor colleague's trademark glamour style, wearing earrings, peep-toe shoes and carrying a clutch bag to complete his outfit.

However, most would agree the 28-year-old Girls Aloud singer pulls off the look far better.

Thief caught with 860 pairs of underwear

Thief caught with 860 pairs of underwear
 A thief from Powys has been arrested after police found him with a stash of undergarments in his home.

Farmer Geoffrey Wilde had 860 pairs of women's underwear in his home, all of which he had stolen from washing lines over the past two years.

A homeowner called police after the well-respected father of five was seen acting suspiciously, carrying a torch and three pairs of ladies knickers.

When arrested Mr Wilde was asked to change his clothes, which led to the discovery that he was in fact wearing a pair of blue ladies underwear.

Magistrates have given him a six-month night-time curfew after he told the court that he didn't know why he was stealing the clothes and admitted he needed help.

His lawyer claimed that the farmer had suffered a considerable fall from grace and was very remorseful for his actions.

University seeks socks to help attract weasels

University seeks socks to help attract weasels
A research team from the University of California is asking the public to help them to attract weasels.

The scientists are appealing to people in the Sierra Nevada region to donate clean, odd and used socks to allow them to monitor a rare weasel called the Pacific fisher.

Researchers have determined that socks are the best receptacle for hanging weasel bait in trees, giving the team an opportunity to film the animals climbing up the trees and chewing on the socks, which are to be filled with chicken.

The team from the Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project are currently going through around 250 pairs of the legwear a month, which has led to a mass appeal to the public for help to reduce the time and money spent shopping for socks.

Scientists have stressed that they aren't after new socks and instead would prefer unmatched, old, but non-holey ones people have in their top drawer.

Sofia was also nominated alongside co-star Julie Bowen for the Best Comedic Actress accolade.

Vanessa Hudgens was photographed out for breakfast in California, wearing an all-together grungier looking outfit than fans are used to seeing from the former Disney star.

She wore a pair of unflattering bell-bottomed brown lace leggings, which clearly exhibited her boxer style underwear.

While the 23-year-old has become known for her Boho style, the legwear drew attention away from the rest of her laidback look, which included a rock band t-shirt and a long cardigan.

Vanessa's leggings also appeared to be exactly the same as a black pair worn by her High School Musical co-star and best friend Ashley Tisdale only two months ago.

The pair were both out for breakfast this weekend, along with Vanessa's boyfriend Austin Butler.

Ashley has become a regular addition to the pair's dates, which could be due to the 26-year-old recently breaking up with her boyfriend of two years, Scott Speer.

Tamara Ecclestone shows off bag collection
Tamara Ecclestone showed off her impressive fashion collection on a recent tour of her home, the Daily Mail reports.

The heiress showed reporters around her £4 million Chelsea apartment, stopping off to look at her 200 pairs of designer shoes and a bags collection worth £200,000.

Her shoe collection alone apparently costs over £70,000; however this is a small price to pay as Tamara has access to a £3 billion trust fund set up by her father Bernie Ecclestone.

Tamara shares her home with her successful stockbroker boyfriend Omar Khyami and revealed that the pair will be jetting off to the Maldives for New Year, once she has had a traditional family Christmas.

The socialite has recently garnered a lot of media attention after the airing of her documentary, where she hoped to quash any "misconceptions" about her lifestyle and reputation as having more money than sense.

While it goes a long way to show off her charity work it also focuses on the renovation of Tamara's property, which includes extravagances such as a crystal bathtub, underground nightclub and leather bunk beds for her dogs.

Lady Gaga uses socks to soften spiky look
Lady Gaga brought a whole new meaning to the term edgy, as she stepped out in Tokyo wearing an all-black ensemble covered in metallic spikes.

The singer wore a bonnet covered in metal studs, as well as a spiked jacket, which was open to reveal a black bra and bare midriff.

On her feet she wore a pair of towering patent heels, and for added warmth they were accompanied by some black socks, softening an otherwise harsh look.

Eccentric Gaga completed the look with a studded handbag, sunglasses and her now customary leather gloves.

The 25-year-old is spending the holiday season in Japan, a country which she cites as being a big part of her unique fashion sense.

Men get it wrong with underwear this Christmas

Men get it wrong with underwear this Christmas
With Christmas approaching, many men will be in a panic as to what to buy their other half.

One failsafe option men frequently decide on is ladies underwear, however according to a recent survey from Debenhams 64 per cent of women believe that their partner chooses completely the wrong style.

Some 91 per cent of males said they would go for lacy lingerie, which is a little bit racy, while 85 per cent of women admitted they would prefer something sexy, stylish and sophisticated.

More than three-quarters of women did reveal that they would be happy to open up underwear for Christmas, although it would depend on what sort.
Michell Dowdall, spokesperson for the department store, claimed that most men do go shopping with the best intentions.

"Yet when faced with satin, lace, frills and bows, panic and buy the first thing they see, without giving a thought to what the woman in their life would actually like," she noted.

Make your tights last longer with some green cleaning tips

Make your tights last longer with some green cleaning tips
There's nothing more frustrating than taking a pair of tights out of the wash only to find that they've gone bobbly or even worse been ravaged by the machine and are no longer wearable.

However, by following a few eco-friendly washing tips, you can make your tights last longer and do your bit for the environment too.

Taking the time to hand wash your tights can make all the difference to how long they last, as they are less likely to get caught in the machine and tear or ladder. Using cooler water can also extend hosiery's life as it means  that they maintain their elasticity for longer – meaning the wearer avoids the Nora Batty look.

If you are going to hand wash, make sure you remove all rings and bracelets so there is nothing for the tights to snag on.

When it comes to drying tights, the Bliss Tree recommends rolling them up in a towel and pressing down to remove any excess water before air drying them either outside or on a cold radiator.

Bar Refaeli keeps warm using tights
Model Bar Refaeli showed she has brains as well as beauty when she thought on her feet and used her trusty tights to add an extra layer to her ensemble.

The blonde beauty, who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio, tweeted that she was wearing some tights under her jeans to ensure that she kept warm while out and about in wintry New York.

"Two lessons today- 1. put tights under ur jeans when its -5C out.. 2. don't get out when it's -5C out," she tweeted.

The model made her feelings about the frosty weather clear adding: "I would sleep the whole winter if i could."

Tights and leggings are a great way to keep warm when the weather takes a turn for the worse and those suffering from cold toes can opt for a layered look by adding some on-trend knee high socks over plain black tights or pulled up under trousers.

Kate Moss strips off in underwear campaign
Kate Moss showed that age is only a number, as she stripped off in a photo shoot for lingerie brand Valisere.

The 37-year-old British model showed that she was still in enviable shape in the women's underwear photos, posing seductively across an unmade bed in stockings and suspenders.

Other photographs show her recreating Brigitte Bardot's trademark style, by backcombing her hair and pouting into the camera.

Kate recently came under fire for mimicking a jewellery advertising campaign while modelling for her own collection for French brand Fred.

The mother-of-one was shown displaying a sexier look with tousled blonde hair, which it was claimed were almost identical to another campaign she appeared in for David Yurman's spring 2011 collection.

A spokesman for Yurman said: "The Fred campaign is embarrassingly similar to the one David Yurman ran a year ago."

Katie Price regresses in striped tights

Katie Price regresses in striped tights
Katie Price appears to have returned to her old ways, after being pictured in a revealing outfit while out for festive drinks in London yesterday.

The reality star and entrepreneur seemed to have returned to her glamour model days, wearing striped black tights and underwear, with no sign of trousers or a skirt to keep her covered up.

She teamed the unflattering look with a pair of black knee-high fur boots and a printed vest top, while her hair was filled with long blonde extensions.

Katie, formerly known as Jordan, has recently become single after splitting with her Argentinian boyfriend Leandro Penna in October.

But rather than spending the holidays with her three children, they will instead all be staying with her ex-husband Peter Andre over both Christmas and New Year.

The pair have recently decided to improve their relationship for the sake of their kids.

Woman sees face of Jesus in a sock

Woman sees face of Jesus in a sock
People claim to have seen the face of Jesus in a number of strange places, but the latest so-called sighting is perhaps more unusual than most.

Sarah Crane from Orpington in Kent claims to have seen the Son of God on a pair of socks as they hung on her washing line.

Thankfully, she and her boyfriend decided to photograph the spectacle, as they soon found that it disappeared after the sock was moved.

"I'd left the washing out to dry overnight - and it had probably been sitting there a bit too long when I noticed the face in the sock," Ms Crane explained.

She added that there is both a straight-on image of Christ, as well as a side profile, which she believes is a "bit of a sign".

Other items that people claim to have seen the face of Jesus in include a slice of toast and a field in Hungary, as pictured by Google Earth.

Rihanna underwear ad named sexiest of 2011

Rihanna underwear ad named sexiest of 2011
Rihanna has never been too far from the headlines this year, and it seems that as 2011 draws to a close, this is showing no signs of changing.

The pop starlet appeared in her underwear for an Armani advertisement in recent months, which has now been named the sexiest ad of 2011.

She was shown in the back of a car for the black and white images, which were voted for by advertising industry chiefs in a poll by Advertising Age.

The mag commented: "It's Rihanna at her sexiest. She's never looked this good. She's in amazing shape and the pictures are stunning."

In recent weeks, Kate Moss stripped off for lingerie brand Valisere, where she posed across an unmade bed wearing stockings and suspenders.

She was also styled in a way that was reminiscent of Brigitte Bardot, with backcombed hair and a pout for the camera.

Socks sent by balloon to North Korea

Socks sent by balloon to North Korea
Activists in South Korea have taken the rather unusual step of transporting aid to their North Korean neighbours by balloon.

Socks have been attached to the inflatable devices, which were filled with gas and sent over the border by the Seoul-based aid group North Korea Peace.

The socks can then be exchanged for food in the country, with estimates suggesting that just one pair can fetch as much as ten kilograms of corn.

What has been described as a "politically innocuous" message has been strapped to the balloons by the group, which plans to send over around 1,000 pairs of socks every month.

The messages read: "The people of the world do not forget the ordeal that our North Korean brothers are undergoing. Please be alive until the day of unification."

North Korea is understood to have threatened to retaliate for the balloon launches in the past.
