Along with the Met Gala, the annual amfAR event during the Cannes Film Festival is one of the biggest events on the calendar. Unlike some of the big award ceremonies that can often be a bit hit and miss, amfAR always attracts a good red carpet and last night, with the exception of Kate Upton, was no exception.
Diane Kruger continued her reign as one of the best dressed women at this year's event, sporting a dress from the Chanel Resort 2013 collection that was unveilved recently. Karolina Kurkova continued her love of all things gold in a beautiful Roberto Cavalli sheer sequin dress with a matching jacket but you'll pleased to know that it came sans gold blingy hat.
You may know Irina Shayk as the model girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo but there's much more to her than that. Her modelling career is doing pretty well. Since starting her career in 2007 she's appeared in everything from the S/S12 Armani Exchange campaign to Kanye West's 'Power' video. It was lingerie giant Intimissimi, though, that gave her her first big break appointing her as their face, replacing Brazilian model Ana Beatriz Barros.
'I believe in destiny - I always knew that I'd leave that village but, replacing someone as big as Ana - that was incredible and so nerve-wracking,' she recently explained. 'I never thought I'd have a career like this. But, I've got good genes - so the underwear posing was OK. I couldn't speak any English when I first left Russia and Intimissimi taught me everything. The team was like a family to me - they showed me how to model and how to stay in shape. They really believed in me.'
It's hardly a surprise then that the model has teamed up with the company again but this time for their book, 'The Perfect Bra.' As the name says, it's all about finding the best bra and for Shayk that's the 'Simona'. 'It's a simple push bra and is so comfortable and flattering,' she told me in an email. 'I love push up bras. Intimissimi has such an amazing selection. I have quite the collection after modelling for them for so many years.' She continued: 'So many women wear the wrong sized bras and I think the campaign, the book and the product will change this.'

President Barack Obama knows how to throw a good party and deliver a good red carpet and the White House Correspondents' Dinner, which took place over the weekend was no different. Along with the usual mix of politicians came fashion folk like Tory Burch and Rachel Zoe, models like Kate Upton and Irina Shayk and major actresses like Kerry Washington and Claire Danes. As you know, Kim Kardashian never misses a photo-op was made an appearance with mother Kris Jenner making Obama joke, 'Why is she famous anyway?' during his speech.
Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend, 24-year-old model Irina Shayk, is at the centre of the latest Photoshop controversy - as she's considering legal action against GQ Spain for allegedly altering images of her to make her look nude. Despite wearing underwear for a shoot for the December issue, Shayk is depicted naked in three pages of a 14-page spread. In addition, GQ Spain placed a headline on the cover to capitalise on the model's alleged nudity, writing: "Want to see the most beautiful creature in the world nude?"
Elite Model Management signed the contract for Shayk to do the shoot and reportedly negotiated rights to the model to see the story, images and cover before printing. However, an Elite representative says Shayk was denied final approval and only saw the materials when they hit stands. We think that must have been quite the shock...
