Adriana Lima for Jason Wu

Adriana Lima was just rehired as the face of Maybelline and now she can be seen featured in Jason Wu’s Fall 2014 campaign – the designer has compared the Brazilian Victoria’s Secret Angel to Bianca Jagger.

The ad, shot by Inez & Vinoodh at the Four Seasons, is the latest in Wu’s ‘Supermodel Supper Club’ series of campaigns that have featured Karen Elson posing at Indochine and Christy Turlington against the backdrop of Mr. Chow.

Is Lima the next Gisele?

Nigerian singer offers to trade places with Boko Haram captured schoolgirls

Adokiye Kyrian has offered her virginity to Boko Haram to #bringbackourgirls. The singer said, ‘Those little girls, where they are and what could be happening to them … is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange.’ She went as far to say that ‘even if 10 to 12 men have to take me every night, I don’t care. Just release these girls and let them go back to their parents.’

What do you think of her offer?

Has Madonna completely lost the plot?

Known for her strange Instagram behaviour – ie posting the strangest selfies – Madonna is at it again, this time posting a picture of herself wearing a burqua, complete with bars over the face, captioning the photo: ‘Its that kind of day! #unapologeticb****’. This was just the latest in a string of edgy pictures shared by the superstar online. She recently posted a picture wearing a tiara with the word ‘B****’ in diamonds and the unapologetic hashtag.
