The two-time winner lets us know how she trained for a repeat victory.
Winning the Olympia Bikini crown once is hard enough—but repeating the very next year? That’s where the pressure comes in. Two-time champ Angelica Teixeira talked about the strategy that helped her win the 2018 Bikini title just one year after her initial victory in 2017. Check out the video above to learn more.
In the decade since Victoria Beckham launched her namesake fashion line, the former Spice Girls star has lived up to her moniker, showing a thoroughly modern version of sophisticated, minimal tailoring, super-luxe handbags and unexpectedly chic footwear.
The 44-year-old designer proved it again with her spring 2019 collection, which she presented for the first time at London Fashion Week, to commemorate the line’s 10th anniversary.
While many designers are veering toward ornate, super-feminine looks with exaggerated sleeves, ruffles and other bits of romanticism, Beckham continued with her strong, sleek silhouette — with tailored jackets in neutrals, smart midi-length dresses with conservative necklines and tunics over slim, straight-leg trousers with split hemlines down the front center.
On foot, Beckham kept things even simpler: Most of the shoes were an ankle boot with an ultra-flat sole. Some were done in matte white leather while others had a metallic gold hue that matched some of the more ornate ready-to-wear pieces (like a pair of split-hem trousers done in gold brocade).
There are, of course, many other designers who have inhabited the space of minimalism, including Helmut Lang, Jil Sander and Phoebe Philo. But with Philo’s recent departure from Céline, it’s possible that Beckham’s tailored pieces — and minimally luxe accessories — might shine a bit brighter.
Victoria Beckham celebrated 10 years of her eponymous fashion brand on Sunday at London Fashion Week — and following the debut of her spring 2019 collection, with her adorable family sitting front row, the 44-year-old designer proved she’s still Posh Spice at heart by dancing and singing along to hit Spice Girl’s song “Spice Up Your Life” at Mark’s Club in Mayfair.
The pop song was released in November 1997 as a part of the iconic British girl group’s album, “Spiceworld,” and is featured in their movie of the same name.
Some fans took to Twitter in reaction to Beckham’s bringing back Posh Spice at the fashion week after-party. One user wrote: “Victoria Beckham dancing to spice up your life last night at her afterparty was exactly what I needed to wake up to today.”

Vanessa Hudgens is known for her bohemian, summer-all-year-round style so it was no surprise to see her sporting a breezy California-girl look in Los Angeles Sunday with longtime boyfriend Austin Butler.
The 29-year-old actress, who sipped ice coffee and walked hand-in-hand with Butler, completed her ensemble with a wide-brim straw hat from Lack of Color and a matching tote bag with a leather handle. She further accessorized with oversize hoop earrings and several bracelets.
Meanwhile, the 27-year-old actor donned a plain white tee paired with navy trousers and dark brown leather lace-up combat boots. He completed things with a navy cap.
Hudgens took to Instagram to share a snap of her outfit with her nearly 30 million followers. She captioned the post “Sunday Vibes” while tagging each brand she was wearing.
The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards are finally here and celeb couples are taking over the red carpet, with Scarlett Johansson and “SNL” boyfriend Colin Jost stealing the show.
The pair, who seemed to be having a great time walking the carpet and posing together Monday night in Los Angeles, looked chic with the “Avengers” actress stunning in a white embellished off-the-shoulder gown. The strapless dress came with a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit, which gave way to slinky silver metallic Christian Louboutin sandals. She further accessorized with statement-making silver drop earrings.
Meanwhile, her man donned a plum-colored suit with black patent leather shoes and a bow tie.
Elsewhere, “Stranger Things” couple Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton posed for the cameras. Dyer wore a sultry gold embellished tank dress while Heaton looked dapper in a black suit and shoes.
Heidi Klum also hit the carpet with her 28-year-old rocker boyfriend Tom Kaulitz, who wore his hair in a messy bun. The 45-year-old “America’s Got Talent” star wore a blush strapless satin gown. She added some bling around her neck for good measure.
The stars are out on the red carpet at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards today — and the fashion is off the charts.
One star to pull off a standout look was Jessica Biel. The actress stepped out alongside husband Justin Timberlake on the red carpet, clad in a stunning Ralph & Russo couture gown from the brand’s fall ’18 collection. As Biel gave off bridal vibes in her voluminous white dress, Timberlake played the perfect counterpart in a sharp-looking tuxedo.
Issa Rae went for a winning ensemble that was reminiscent of Cinderella’s ballgown. The “Insecure” star wowed in a powder-blue, custom Vera Wang jumpsuit with a long train. Rae complemented the gorgeous jumpsuit with sandals and dangly earrings from Piaget.
Joey King also pulled off a princess-y look in style. The 19-year-old walked the red carpet alongside Zac Posen — and she didn’t disappoint in her ethereal dress created by the designer. The fairylike dress featured a flowing tulle skirt and asymmetrical hemline.
Never one to play it safe on the red carpet, Tracee Ellis Ross took a risk that paid off in spades. The “Black-ish” actress sported a hot-pink Valentino couture gown with absurdly oversized sleeves. While the ensemble could have easily overwhelmed the star, Ross made it work by matching her beauty look to her dress and keeping her accessories to a minimum.
Meanwhile, “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown shined in a floral off-the-shoulder dress from Calvin Klein. The teen completed her ensemble with kitten heels in the same colorway as her gown.
As the man who started the controversial kneeling movement in protest of police brutality, Kaepernick has become a polarizing figure not just in sports but in politics, and the campaign generated mixed reactions.
“I am wearing Nike to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick and his protest against police brutality,” Lewis told Variety. The actress added that she wanted to thank the athletic wear giant for “leading the resistance.”
“We need more of corporate America to stand up also,” she said. “These are not darkening times; these are awakening times, and we need to stand up.”
Asked what she would say to Kaepernick, Lewis said that she wanted to thank him for “being brave and courageous” and for “taking a knee.”
Fans on Twitter reacted positively to Lewis’ look, with many saying the star had won the night.
“‘What can I do? What can I do that’s meaningful?’ THAT is the question that we ALL need to be asking ourselves. Thank you @JeniferLewis for using your platform in such a meaningful way,” one fan wrote.

Padma Lakshmi has the world talking about her Emmys look for few reasons tonight.
The “Top Chef” star is wearing a recycled flowing red J. Mendel dress she rocked at the Vogue India Women of the Year Awards in October 2017 paired with slinky bronze sandals. The 48-year-old also noticeably donned a blue ribbon pinned to the waist of her gown in support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ALCU), for which she is an ambassador.
During an interview on the red carpet, Lakshmi shared why aligns herself with the organization. “I came to this country as an immigrant myself and I think it’s important we remember that America is what it is because we’re a nation of immigrants. It’s also important for America to keep our word.”
“I’m excited to wear this beautiful J. Mendel dress again,” Lakshmi told People. “I think in this day and age we should stop sending the message to young women and girls that we all have these endless closets of clothes we never wear more than once, especially on a red carpet.”
She added, “The hours that it takes, the artisans’ labor and the gorgeous fabrics all deserve to be worn again and treasured. It seems wasteful not to enjoy these dresses.”
If you’re going to walk a red carpet, you might as well do it with a bang, like Tiffany Haddish and Tracee Ellis Ross, for example. Both actresses turned heads in bright, colorful looks at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles tonight.
The “Night School” star, for one, wowed in a plunging rainbow gown custom-made by Prabal Gurung. The red, blue, green and yellow design featured a flowing skirt, which she twirled as she posed, showing off her chunky black platform sandals. She accessorized with statement-making earrings.
Meanwhile, the “Black-ish” actress made waves in a vibrant hot pink gown with huge poofy sleeves and a full skirt. She added matching lipstick and eyeshadow to complete her bold look.
Elsewhere, Allison Janney also opted for a colorful ensemble, stepping out in a glittering magenta design boasting a sultry thigh-high slit. She pulled things together with a matching clutch and sandals as well as green drop earrings.
As for Leslie Jones, the comedian-slash-actress stood out in a purple, pink and blue suit complete with a shimmering finish. Drop earrings, a matching ring and a silver sparkling clutch bag topped off her look.
Strappy sandals are a red carpet staple — and it seemed like just about everyone was wearing them at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards tonight.
Mandy Moore stepped out in a form-fitting black and gold Rodarte dress that glistened. Moore teamed the stylish gown with black sandals that featured a series of intricate straps.
Clad in a white gown by Solace London, Kristen Bell looked angelic as she walked the red carpet. The star went for a monochrome look, completing her ensemble with white ankle-strap sandals that remained hidden beneath her floor-scraping dress for much of the night.
Like Bell, Claire Foy opted for a white gown, choosing a column dress with a massive bow in the back. The dress cut off just above the star’s ankles, allowing her to show off a pair of mismatched Calvin Klein sandals with embellishment.
The trendy sandals have become a celebrity favorite for awards show appearances, with Nicole Kidman sporting the style in a pink colorway at last year’s Emmy Awards.
Meanwhile, Chrissy Teigen opted for a metallic look from head to toe as she walked the red carpet alongside her husband, Emmy Award winner John Legend.
The cookbook author sported a silver dress with a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit. For footwear, she selected a pair of gleaming silver ankle-strap sandals that perfectly matched her gown.
When it comes to fashion, not every look can be a winner.
Some stars impressed social media users with their red carpet style at the 70th Primetime Emmys tonight, but others put together looks that fell flat.
Tiffany Haddish stepped out in a brightly colored Prabal Gurung dress that she said was inspired by the Eritrean flag — but some said the striped gown reminded them of parachutes used by elementary schoolers in gym class.
Plenty of It bags have gone in and out of favor in Hollywood over the years. Remember the Balenciaga motorcycle bag everyone had to have because of the Olsens? But one new bag in particular stands to inherit the title of most coveted in 2018: Celine’s Le 16 Bag.
Why is it especially desirable right now? For starters, it marks Hedi Slimane’s very first bag design for the brand since being announced as creative director back in January, so it’s bound to be one for the history books. Then comes the exclusivity factor. The bag doesn’t officially launch until November, and only two celebrities have gotten their hands on it: Angelina Jolie, who wore hers for a shopping trip in Los Angeles, and Lady Gaga, who debuted hers at the Venice Film Festival. Scroll down to see how they styled it and shop other Celine bags for yourself.
Victoria Beckham is a busy woman, especially when she’s presenting the 10th-anniversary collection of her namesake label at London Fashion Week and hosting a celebratory party with Vogue (whew). If anyone needs a fall uniform, it’s her, and she seemed to nail hers down this weekend.
For her big weekend, the designer had multiple outfit changes, and it did not go unnoticed by us that three of her outfits in a row were basically the same (and all designed by Beckham herself, naturally): an oversize blazer, tucked-in T-shirt, slit-hem pants (a style she’s grown fond of recently: exhibit A and exhibit B), and heels. We’d have to agree that it’s the perfect fall outfit: Appropriate for a number of occasions, oozing polish and sophistication, and flattering, it’s also composed entirely of pieces most of us already own.
Keep reading to see the Victoria Beckham–approved fall outfit in action and shop it for yourself.
Whether you’re one of Rocky Barnes’s 1.4 million Instagram followers or not, you will definitely appreciate her beautiful custom-made wedding dress. The It girl just got married in an embroidered tulle mermaid gown by Spanish brand Pronovias, and we can’t stop staring at the dreamy photos. Plus, we love her refreshing take on bridesmaid dresses: She had her five closest pals wear five different looks instead of matching.
Pronovias shared the details on her wedding dress in a press release, revealing just how intricate the design process was. “The dress comes together in geometric patterns and a dramatic train, with interiors in glass tulle with georgette and silk organza. The gorgeous dress was made in the Pronovias Atelier in Barcelona, the place where design innovation is brought to life through exceptional craftsmanship and took over 113 hours to create.” Scroll down to get a glimpse at her beautiful wedding.

Following a long summer of seemingly endless vacation days, it’s time for celebrities to get back to the award show circuit, starting with tonight’s highly anticipated 70th annual Emmy Awards in downtown Los Angeles. With stars like Millie Bobby Brown, Penélope Cruz, Issa Rae, Jessica Biel, and Constance Wu confirmed to attend, the 2018 Emmy Awards red carpet is guaranteed to be as chic as they come.
Not surprisingly, many of the F/W 18 and impending S/S 19 trends are represented on the red carpet tonight, including neon and ’80s glam. The beauty of the Emmy Awards is that it falls right smack dab in the middle of spring fashion month, so the nominees, presenters, and other attendees (who aren’t wearing a custom-made dress, that is) have their pick of some of the freshest gowns available, straight from the runway. In fact, based on tonight’s looks, no one could ever say TV stars aren’t as stylish as movie stars. Keep scrolling to see the Emmy Awards looks that are making jaws drop and that everyone will still be talking about tomorrow morning.
Don’t get us wrong. We love a good red carpet roundup of women whose giant gowns, modern twists on suits, and generally over-the-top award show style fueled our fashion-loving childhood dreams (and still do, to be fair). So far tonight, though, as we’ve excitedly watched the arrivals on the 2018 Emmy Awards red carpet, it’s not the women’s fashion that’s caught our eye. Not that we should be surprised, but the gentlemen attending this year’s Emmys are showing up wearing some truly fashionable outfits. In fact, it is our humble opinion that they deserve to be recognized with their own roundup—and here we are.
Ahead, take a look at some of the most fashionable boys attending the 2018 Emmy Awards. Including the faces you all know and love from Stranger Things and much more, the lads ahead are making the red carpet look pretty dapper this evening.
While I’d love to describe the Burberry S/S 19 runway show and collection in a few short words, today’s debut for the house by Riccardo Tisci hardly allows for such conciseness. Between the major models, throwback elements, reimagined classics, and a whopping 133 looks, you could say the new chief creative officer came in with a bang—and then some. To see our top five takeaways from the show, then catch the full runway video, simply continue on below.
Are dress codes merely just a suggestion? According to Black-ish star Jenifer Lewis, they really are. Watching her arrive on the 2018 Emmys red carpet tonight wearing the athleisure outfit of our dreams, including a custom Nike sweatshirt, black leggings, and—you guessed it—sneakers, we are officially rethinking this whole “black-tie expected” thing. Curious to know her reasoning behind the unexpected outfit, we looked a little further into her outfit choice and learned that Lewis wore Nike to support something much bigger than just a knockout look.
“I am wearing Nike to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice and police brutality,” she told Varietyon the red carpet. An award show outfit that does good, looks good, and feels good? We’re into it. Go on to see her full look at to shop similar pieces in case you want to re-create her ensemble at your next red carpet event.
About halfway through the Emmy Awards red carpet tonight, there was an overwhelming trend taking over. It’s not subtle. There’s no way to miss it. It’s yellow—bright, burst-of-sunshine, neatly highlighter-marker yellow.
Lane Bryant just debuted its first-ever influencer collaboration and we have a feeling it won’t be the brand’s last, considering multiple pieces are already selling out. The retailer has teamed up with Tanesha Awasthi of Girl With Curves on a collection of perfect-for-fall pieces, including a
“Words can’t express how honored I am to be the first influencer to design a collection in partnership with Lane Bryant,” Awasthi said on Instagram. “As a longtime friend of the brand, it’s been amazing to work with a company founded on the idea that women of all sizes deserve beautiful clothing. With this collection, we wanted to give you versatile pieces to wear for every aspect of your lifestyle, from work to weekend.” Scroll down to shop the collection now.
Safe to say, that’s not the typical offseason from a pro quarterback.
“Traveling to me is one of the most important things you can do in this life,” Rodgers says. “You learn about other cultures and you also learn and realize the world is bigger than your little sphere of influence. I am very fortunate to do what I do and have made the relationships that I’ve made over the years, and being able to travel has been a big part of that.”
Swimming with sharks was something that Rodgers wanted to do for a long time, but not because he was excited for it—it was because it scared him. Shark Week gave him the chance to overcome that fear. Rodgers helped a crew during shooting to add a tracker to a shark so that researchers could track its migration patterns.
Between training, swimming with sharks, and traveling the world, Rodgers didn’t have much time for anything else this offseason, but he did squeeze in a fun collaboration with Colin Jost for Izod. Rodgers teamed up with the Saturday Night Live star and comedian to poke some fun at traditional menswear ads and the usual tropes of those commercials of the past.
Rodgers got to show off some of his comedic timing in the Izod video:
Rodgers spoke with Men’s Journal about his worldwide offseason travels, what it was like meeting the Dalai Lama, his best travel tips, and his favorite books.
You had quite the whirlwind offseason. What were some of your favorite experiences from your trips?
Getting into the water with sharks was pretty wild. That was an experience I’ll never forget. Going to India and Africa were incredible experiences too. Those are the types of opportunities I look forward to doing every offseason. Meeting the Dalai Lama was something special, I’m not sure he knew who I was, but it was still really cool to meet him. I like to be able to have incredible personal experiences but also to make an impact where I can. When I was in Africa, I worked with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to help kids get their hearing back, and that was really special. I’m fortunate to be in this position where I can do things like that.
What did you enjoy most about collaborating with Colin Jost and Izod on this funny project?
This was kind of a dream situation for me. I’ve been a part of some great campaigns in the past, but never one that’s been written by someone with the comedic chops of Colin. Obviously he’s known for his work on SNL, but overall, he’s just so funny and talented and I was so excited to work on something that he wrote. He was really funny in it, and what I enjoyed most was that this wasn’t your standard commercial where it’s just the front man, you say one line and that’s it. This one had a lot of fun scenarios and poking fun at the whole nature of the thing. It was fun to do something creative and memorable and get to have some fun banter with someone as talented and funny as Colin is.
What did you enjoy about being able to put your sense of humor and football and personality on display?
People have mostly seen me in the State Farm commercials, and those are really fun too, but for the most part, I haven’t had chances to joke around and do multiple takes and ad lib. It was like an SNL sketch in that way. Colin helped put together a great script and I did a lot of funny takes the entire day on set, just cracking up and working with the crew. I was able to try some different things and new ideas, and that was really fun. In a way it didn’t ever feel like work because everyone had a great time and wanted to make it really funny. It was a dream situation to be in the same video as a big-time star like Colin, who stole the show with his nunchuck work [laughs].
As someone who travels a lot, do you have any essential travel gear or advice for people when they’re on a trip?
This might sound like an obvious tip, but always make sure you have comfortable clothes. It’s simple, but it’s it’s really important to have those, because no matter where you go or what you’re doing, you’re going to need something comfortable at some point. I also think books are super important for any trip. I’m a big reader, I love to read and I’m always interested in learning more. So for me, essential travel gear is that I’m always bringing comfortable clothes and a good book.
What are some of your favorite books? Anything you’d recommend to Men’s Journal readers?
I read a lot of nonfiction stuff, and I’m a big fan of Jon Krakauer’s books. He’s written a lot of interesting books about various topics. The book “Where Men Win Glory” about Pat Tillman’s life and what he sacrificed is a personal favorite of mine, and I recommend to anyone who hasn’t read it, even if you’re not a football fan. “Into Thin Air” is an incredible book, and same for “Under the Banner of Heaven.” These are all just great books, and I think I’ve read all of his other books. They’re just fantastic and I always recommend his books to anyone who likes nonfiction, because Krakauer does an incredible job of giving historical background in his topics and relaying the story in a way that’s interesting. It always grips you and makes you want to keep reading.
What are your expectations for the team this season?
I think we have a strong team this year, and I’m excited to see what we can do. We have a lot of talented guys, and this team can be one of the best in the league.
