Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore in Mario Testino's "Let Me In"

It has been said the avid magazine readers are likely familiar with Mario Testino's work. He is an amazing photographer to the celebrities and contributes regularly to famous fashion magazines such as Vanity Fair and Vogue. His new book, Let Me In, consists of amazing photos he has taken throughout his career, along with those he has taken on the sidelines of photo shoots, capturing celebrity subjects in their natural states. One of the best pictures made it as the cover: Demi Moore putting lipstick on hubby Ashton Kutcher - sexy, voyeuristic, and kinda weird (in a good way).

Pink Passion

As I do my regular blog/site hopping, I was fascinated with Victoria's Secret Pink collection. (I am a certified pink-oholic since birth, with addictions on green and purple.) A few days ago, I had a post about purple, "the new pink". Sad to say, purple dominated the fashion world which leave the pink-fanatics a slimmer chance flaunt a pink outfit.

So let me share with you the pink-est prezzles that caught my eyes in VS site.

The site offered their A-List Gifts for Victoria's Secret Pink collection. The list includes comfy, cozy and cute thermal, flannel, hoodies, sweats and sleepshirts galore; perfect for holiday PJ pants; adorable flip-flops and ballet slippers; trendy totes and laptop cases; sweet chillin' boxsie and hipster popper; and huggable pillows.

Sophie Monk's "Spice Up Your Life" PETA Ad

Sophie Monk, an Australian pop singer and actress, stripped off her clothes to promote the veggie diet.

The American Beauty inspired print and billboard campaign sports the tagline: “Spice Up Your Life—Go Vegetarian” and showed Sophie lying on a bed of red hot chili peppers.

According to PETA, Sophie wants fans to know that giving up meat is one of the best things you can do to "spice up your life." Eating a diet of vegetarian foods will give you more energy, help you stay trim, and improve blood flow to all of your body's organs.

"If you are going to take your clothes off for something, it better be a good cause," says Sophie in her interview for PETA.

Topping the sparkly stakes was Kate Moss, donning a 1920s-style frock, adorned with 60,000 Swarovski crystals, and apparently vauled at £40,000. The frock will be auctioned off on eBay.

Fendi's Fashion Show At The Great Wall Of China

Accroding to Trendhunter, this is the first time that such event has taken place on the Great Wall. After one year of negotiations, paperwork and millions of dollars from Fendi’s pocket, Fendi presented its new collection in a fashion show on the Great Wall of China.

There was a magnificent display of lights, models and amazing clothes. Despite the volume in this collection, Fendi showed accentuated waists which remind women of their femininity. Black and red were the foundational colors chosen by Karl Lagerfeld.

Hollywood stars Kate Bosworth and Thandie Newton showed up and enjoyed a memorable event along with 500 other show goers who had the pleasure and fortune to see one of the most amazing displays of fashion ever.

For once, it seems that the Great Wall surrendered, and it was to the fashion world.

Here's some of the pictures of models while walking on the runway.

Purple Fashion: Purple Is The New Pink

This season, the purple color is so hot! Whether violet, soft lilac, lavender or deep plum, all shades are absolutely stylish.

The look works great worn from head to toe, or simply to add a burst of color through accessories.

Go all out in the colour stakes - head-to-toe purple is (for once) not a fashion crime.

Cheer up a gloomy day with a bit of sparkle in regal purple.

These gorgeous shoes (and funky wellies!) will have you skipping through the season, whatever the weather.

Eye-catching but oh-so-subtle, show you know your trends with just a flash of this season's hottest color.
