David Beckham rocks socks with sandals

David Beckham rocks socks with sandals
David Beckham has proved that he is one of the coolest celebrities around, by breaking one of fashions biggest taboos.

The 37-year-old footballer was seen out in Santa Monica, Los Angeles wearing white sports socks and pool sandals for a trip to the supermarket.

Despite this being traditionally frowned upon, David managed to pull off the look and complemented it with a white t-shirt, grey rolled up jogging bottoms and a grey beanie hat.

With his wife Victoria now a well-known fashion designer, and David himself releasing his own underwear collections, the couple are fast becoming one of Hollywood's most stylish pairs.

It's not only their own clothes which the Beckhams are famous for wearing, as the footballer recently showed his support for the London 2012 Paralympic Games by donning their official t-shirt.

David recorded a special message to the troops in Afghanistan, in which he encouraged soldiers to wear their own tops with pride.

Hilary Duff wears leggings for all occasions
Hilary Duff has shed her baby weight and seems to be enjoying her life as a young mum.

The actress was spotted out with her baby son Luca this weekend wearing a pair of black leggings, white t-shirt, red trainers and a slick of red lipstick.

Her outfit also had a celebrity edge, with her oversized aviator sunglasses and large handbag over one arm as she enjoyed the sun with her five-month-old son.

The former Disney actress seems to particularly enjoy wearing leggings at the moment, after shedding her baby weight.

She stepped out with a few of her gal pals in a pair of skin-tight leather-look leggings the night before, which she also paired with a matching boob tube and bright red lippy.

The blonde beauty tweeted afterwards: "Had the best girls night with Alisia Leibel, Jess Pasternak and my lovely ladies at Nine Zero One, you know mama needed it."

Selena Gomez displays feisty look in leggings
Selena Gomez attempted to ditch her teenage image, walking through the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris in a rockier look.

The 20-year-old headed to the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of her new movie Spring Breakers and was photographed wearing studded biker boots, black leggings and a white top.

She accessorised with black Ray Ban sunglasses, giving her appearance a feisty edge as she made her way through the crowds.

Selena Gomez is making sure the world knows she is no longer a child star.

Despite wanting to keep a low profile, before her trip the actress posted on her Twitter page: "Off to Venice for the big premiere of Spring Breakers!!!"

The film co-stars Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine and follows the story of four college girls who steal money to fund their spring break trip.

However, things soon go awry when they become entangled with a dangerous drug dealer, portrayed by James Franco.

Underwear sales up thanks to 50 Shades of Grey

Underwear sales up thanks to 50 Shades of Grey
As well as being one of the best-selling books of all time, erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey could be affecting clothing sales too.

New figures from department store Debenhams have shown that underwear sales have risen dramatically since the meteoric success of the E.L James book.

Female underwear sales are up by 63 per cent according to the retailer, with babydoll nighties witnessing a 105 per cent jump in sales over the last month.

Commenting on the figures, the firm's head of lingerie, Sharon Webb claimed: "We've seen a huge increase in male customers visiting our lingerie departments over the last fortnight."

"Since the 50 shades phenomenon men are purchasing more daring pieces," she went on to admit, saying that silky sets, negligees, thongs, stockings and suspenders are all selling well.

The main character in the novel, Christian Grey frequently shopped for women's underwear, however this was usually with the help of his assistant, a luxury most British men are unlikely to have.

Chinese building 'looks like long underwear'

Chinese building 'looks like long underwear'
A new building in east China's Suzhou city has been mocked for its striking resemblance to male undergarments.

The building, nicknamed the Orient Gate, appears to look like a pair of long men's underwear, according to many locals.

Resembling the Arc de Triomphe but in a more angular style the building was designed by the British architecture firm RMJM and has been built in a city famed for its idyllic courtyard gardens.

On the country's popular micro-blogging service, Sina Weibo, compared the Gate to another unusual building, the state broadcaster CCTV's Beijing headquarters.

The topic "long-johns vs. big boxer shorts" is currently trending, with over 500,000 comments posted.

Orient Gate stands at 278 metres high and will accommodate offices, hotels, malls and apartments, with the eight-year construction process expected to be completed in 2012.

While the building has garnered some criticism, many locals believe that it is positive that architecture can cause such debate.

Sofia Vergara looks the part in maternity leggings

Sofia Vergara looks the part in maternity leggings
Sofia Vergara very much looked the part on set this week as her Modern Family character Gloria.

Sporting a fake baby bump, she looked convincingly pregnant as she tottered about in Los Angeles wearing black high-heeled sandals and matching maternity leggings.

The 40-year-old also covered up her prosthetic stomach with a tight, green and black snakeskin print top, wearing a knitted cardigan over the top between takes.

Sofia was spotted brushing up on her lines while clutching the comedy script and making time for a few healthy snacks, while not smudging her crimson red lipstick.

While the Colombian beauty's character prepares to give birth to her second child, Sofia has admitted recently that she would entertain the idea of having another baby.

Last month, she told Allure magazine: "I would think about it. I can have more nannies. So it wouldn't be something crazy for me."

Sofia has a 19-year-old son called Manolo from her first marriage and is currently engaged to businessman Nick Loeb.

One Direction stars surprised with Batman underwear

One Direction stars surprised with Batman underwear
One Direction won big at last night's MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), but it appears they could be set for more surprises when they return to the UK.

The girlfriends of Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson have got together to buy matching Batman underwear for their beaus to welcome them back from their successful trip to Los Angeles.

Liam's dancer girlfriend Danielle Peazer clearly realised that her other half has a thing for the superhero as she also bought him a birthday cake featuring the caped crusader recently.

The 24-year-old posted a picture of the pants on her Twitter account after heading out shopping with Louis' leading lady, student Eleanor Calder.

One Direction proved that they have broken the American market by scooping three gongs at the VMAs.

Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson weren't the only Brits to go home with awards though, as Coldplay and Calvin Harris were also successful.

Paralympian Hannah Cockroft praises 'lucky socks'

Paralympian Hannah Cockroft praises 'lucky socks'
Paralympic athlete Hannah Cockroft has revealed that her sporting success was helped by wearing lucky clothing.

The Team GB star won gold in the T34 200 metres at the Olympic Stadium last week and told Metro afterwards: "I've got my Wonder Woman underwear on and my lucky socks."

She revealed that the socks had fish on, a creature she is scared of.

Cockroft said they were bought by a friend of hers who joked "if you wear them you're racing away from your feet", which led the star to admit "it must work because I always win when I wear them".

The 20-year-old helped kick-start GB's athletics medal haul by winning the first gold of the Paralympic track and field competition with victory in the 100m.

She also became the first Paralympic athlete to break a world record in the Olympic Stadium, reaching 18:05 seconds in the 100m race.

Pregnant Fearne Cotton heads to work in leggings

Pregnant Fearne Cotton heads to work in leggings
Since announcing her pregnancy, Fearne Cotton has perhaps become even more of a style icon as she attempts to stay on-trend in maternity wear.

The 31-year-old radio presenter was seen heading into work last week wearing black leggings and matching Converse sneakers, showing that she may have already chosen to ditch the heels in favour of flats.

She wore a floral black and white print top, which loosely clung to her growing baby bump, and accessorised with John Lennon-style round sunglasses and a black and gold studded handbag as she entered the Radio 1 building.

Earlier in the week Fearne was seen heading into work in a vintage peach dress with bird motif and cute cropped sleeves before being photographed greeting Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones.

The Celebrity Juice star revealed last month that she is expecting her first child with musician Jesse Wood, who is the son of Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood.

4,500 pairs of underwear donated to Vancouver Mission

4,500 pairs of underwear donated to Vancouver Mission
Vancouver's Union Gospel Mission has received an unusual gift thanks to the GotGinch project.

A staggering 4,500 pairs of underwear were dropped off by the social-giving networks DeliverGood.org and GotGinch, as part of their first stop in a new cross-Canada underwear drive.

The groups have been delivering boxes of undergarments for homeless people in ten Canadian cities for four years now, and for the first time the donation includes women's knickers as well.

Gabriella Ostendorfer, who helped run the project, told The Province that she was inspired to start her own drive called Need Knickers to help collect female underwear for the cause too.

"It's one small thing that provides dignity. I know they need other things too, but to have a clean pair of underwear is also important," she said.

Other shelters in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax will all receive donations over the next week.

The Saturdays party at VMAs in tan tights
Over the past fortnight The Saturdays have been trying to launch their career stateside, and it seems that their MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) performance could be the start of new love affair with US audiences.

The girls made their red carpet debut wearing all-white attire as they joined dozens of stars in preparing for one of the biggest events in music.

Mollie King, Una Healy, Rochelle Humes, Frankie Sandford and Vanessa White were also asked to perform at Perez Hilton's after party.

Wearing a darker mix of denim shorts and vests, the band all wore matching shiny tan tights, helping to draw attention to their slim pins as they danced on stage after their busy night.

The night marked The Saturdays first ever US performance and the start of a huge amount of promotional work planned for this year.

They have also recently confirmed that their new single What About Us will act as their first US and worldwide release in January 2013.

Pamela Anderson arrives at dance studio in grey leggings
Pamela Anderson has shown how serious she is about winning Dancing with the Stars, heading for rehearsals early.

The model and actress arrived at a dance studio in Los Angeles this week with her professional dance partner Tristan McManus to practice her moves ahead of their first show.

She was spotted looking tired afterwards wearing a white strap top, grey leggings and flip flops as she made her way to her car following studio time with the Irish dancer.

The former Baywatch babe was photographed makeup-free and clutching a water bottle as she exited the building, with only a few weeks to go until the season 15 premiere of Dancing with the Stars.

As well Pamela, there were other stars seen at the studio, including Cheers actress Kirstie Alley, who joined dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy for a lesson.

Both celebrities have already appeared on the programme in previous years, as this season promises to bring back some of the show's best-loved faces.

Cher attempts unusual fishnet tights ensemble
Cher showed off her eccentric taste in fashion at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles to watch the award-winning musical, The Book Of Mormon.

The 66-year-old appeared in black leggings, fishnet stockings, over-the-top earrings and an oversized purple Philip Treacy hat.

She seemed to be pretty excited by her outfit, tweeting earlier in the night: "I look cute in my Philip Trace Hat! Well Purple Hat … Looks Cute! [sic]"

Fans of Cher then tried to get the singer to share a sneak preview of her look, however, she only managed to upload blurry images thanks to being in a bumpy car.

Cher followers will also be hoping to see more weird and wacky outfits from the singer later this year, when it is reported that she will be marrying for the third time.

According to The Sun, she will be saying I do to Hell's Angel Tim Medvetz in Las Vegas this autumn after a cross-country motorbike trip.

Geri Halliwell dressed down this week as she stepped out in her running gear in London.

The Spice Girl wore a pair of tight grey leggings, with a matching hoody, purple vest and trainers as she headed out to a nearby park.

She recently hit the headlines after briefly dating Russell Brand following their respective Olympics closing ceremony performances.

The 40-year-old has since kept a low profile, leaving her London home in sunglasses and more casual ensembles.

Russell on the other hand has been frequently spotted out with different women, enjoying travelling to new places and picnics in the park, as well as going to yoga classes.

The couple were seen together enjoying one another's company until Russell was seen hand in hand with another woman, prompting Geri to decide to cool their blossoming romance before it had even begun.

'Geordie' pantsman attempts new world record

'Geordie' pantsman attempts new world record
A north-east man is confident that he has beaten the world record for the most pairs of pants worn at once.

Gary Craig of Whitburn, who is better-known as the 'Geordie' pantsman, found his way into the Guinness World Records books last year when he managed to pull on 211 pairs of men's underwear.

However, the 53-year-old was bested in February when American Janine Keblish managed to fit on 252 pairs of underwear.

But, with Sunday's Great North Run going on, Mr Craig decided to try and reclaim his record, the Sunderland Echo reports.

He told the newspaper: "It went very, very well and official number is 302. I wanted to be the first person to put on over 300 pairs and I did it."

Mr Craig added: "I wanted to break the record by so much that if anyone else ever does manage to break it, they will definitely deserve it."

Chantelle Houghton stays upbeat in rose leggings
Despite having a tough time recently, following her split from fiance Alex Reid last week, Chantelle Houghton appears to be getting back to normality.

The Celebrity Big Brother star was spotted leaving her Essex home with her three-month-old baby Dolly as she ventured out to see her mum and brother.

Wearing a pair of rose print leggings and a black vest she seemed to be putting her troubles behind her, even going to the trouble of wearing false eyelashes for the occasion.

Houghton displayed her impressive post-baby figure in the tight outfit as she stepped out only a week after ending her 17-month relationship with Reid.

In her new! Magazine column she told fans: "It's true that I ended my relationship with Alex last week. As you know, things have been difficult for a while and I tried my very best to make it work. I'm really hurt."

This statement came soon after she broke the news via Twitter on September 7th, claiming that she had "no option" but to call things off with the cage fighter.

Lady Gaga stands out at Philip Treacy hat show
Lady Gaga stood out from the crowd this weekend as she entered the Philip Treacy show at London Fashion Week.

The eccentric singer appeared in an extravagant floral hat, which covered her entire head, leaving only a circle of space for her face in the centre.

As well as wearing the Treacy-desigend headgear the singer wore Alexander McQueen shoes and a jade green embellished dress.

Gaga wasn't the only famous face watching the unique spring-summer 2013 catwalk collection, as Dita Von Teese, Grace Jones, Nick Rhodes, Kim Cattrell and Bryan Ferry were also in attendance.

Treacy is hailed as one of the world's greatest milliners and after a 13 year absence from the annual London fashion event it seems that the Irish designer is back on form.

Led by Alex Wek, his models certainly made a statement, wearing Michael Jackson-inspired vintage costumes and a range of outlandish headpieces, including a giant smiley face, a huge feather creation and a fully-working miniature carousel.

Katy Perry climbs volcano in leggings

Katy Perry climbs volcano in leggings
After a tumultuous year in the spotlight, Katy Perry has embarked on a spiritual journey after taking inspiration from Elizabeth Gilbert's post-divorce memoir Eat, Pray, Love.

The 27-year-old singer tweeted a picture of herself yesterday standing on top of a volcano wearing leggings, a hooded sweatshirt and a rucksack as she surveyed her surroundings.

Alongside the snap, she wrote: "I ate, I prayed, I climbed a volcano."

While it is unclear where Perry was at the time, she has recently been posting messages devoted to meditation, signifying that she could be on a soul-searching quest.

The past year has been difficult for the pop star, in which she finalised her divorce from British comedian Russell Brand in July and then rumours sparked of an on-off relationship with singer John Mayer soon afterwards.

While the Wide Awake hit maker and Mayer have not officially announced that they are together, the pair have been pictured enjoying each other's company on numerous occasions.

Zoeey Deschanel perfected her girl-next-door look this weekend at the pre-Emmy awards party.

Ahead of the 64th annual event the New Girl actress arrived in a raspberry pink dress, accessorised with a black floral pattern and opaque black tights, channelling a more autumnal look.

Zooey opted for a strapless, sweetheart-neckline prom dress from Reem Acra, which perfectly complemented her fair-skinned complexion.

She paired the floor-length princess dress with some dazzling stud earrings and a flash of raspberry pink lipstick, keeping her hair twisted neatly into a 60s-style up-do.

But the quirky style icon wasn't ready to completely conform with her look and chose to give herself an edge by painting tiny TV sets on her nails in black and gold.

Leggings 'are new modern must-have'

Leggings 'are new modern must-have'
Every decade has its own must-have trends and while knee-length skirts and straight legged jeans might have been popular in the 90s, they are no longer wardrobe staples.

Instead it seems that skinny jeans, leggings and blazers are some of the most popular fashion items for women today, according to a new survey.

F&F at Tesco's poll found that nude tights, ballet pumps and maxi dresses are now modern classics.

Many of these items are thanks to style icons such as Kate Middleton, who helped to bring back timeless items such as cardigans and simple white blouses.

Other clothes which were rated highly include little black dresses, black trousers, pencil skirts and black court shoes, all of which are common in British wardrobes.

A spokesman for the supermarket brand commented that "good-quality staple items can really help to save costs when it comes to a new season or trend".

White socks and smart shoes 'are fashion faux pas'

White socks and smart shoes 'are fashion faux pas'
When it comes to fashion faux pas, it seems that there are some combinations of clothing which have fallen out of favour.

According to a new study by The Mailbox ahead of Style Birmingham Live, wearing white socks with smart shoes is an absolute no-no.

This is also the case when wearing socks and sandals together, the poll found.

Topping the list of top fashion disasters were puffball skirts, made popular by acts such as Pepsi and Shirley in the mid-80s.

Other high ranking designs on the list included tracksuits, high-heeled jelly shoes, dungarees, ponchos, white cow boy boots, bum-bags and Union Jack shorts.

Tarah Hewitt, marketing manager at The Mailbox, said: "What is and isn't fashionable is always going to be debateable as it's largely down to personal choice and opinions."

She went on to claim that certain people can pull off these items, citing Kate Moss' ability to look great in a poncho.
