Fashion: Former Supermodel Linda Evangelista Wardrobe Malfunction?

Nothing major for the former supermodel, Linda Evangelista, 45, isn't as active as she used to be.

However her recent paparazzi shot with her lover, millionaire restauranteur and co-founder of Hard Rock Cafe chain and Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Peter Morton, 64, shows her in a conservative cream suit with her shirt gaping indicating no brassiere.  They were seen leaving their Miami Beach hotel.

As to why the couple who headed for splitsville a  month ago were together is still unknown.  They parted ways over arguments regarding the location of their permanent residence.

The couple met in 2006 when Linda was pregnant with the child reported to be that of Salma Hayek's husband.

Though its quite obvious that something like going 'unsupported' should never be (in most cultures, that is) it is quite obvious that her shirt doesn't show any other button except the one that is located near her throat.   The shirt was probably meant to be worn with a little camisole.

She completed her non-working former supermodel look with her auburn hair in a ponytail and white flat snakeskin style shoes.

Fashion: Lumberjack Shirts

The latest lumberjack shirt fad is caused by Dolce & Gabbana and Tommy Hilfiger showcasing it on their catwalks during these cold, cold times.  Labeled a great investment the lumberjack shirt trend is expected to continue till the Spring/Summer of 2011.

Once the staple of big woodsmen the current lumberjack shirts had never been so fashionable.  Today it is worn with a shirt underneath,comes in bold colors, has two pockets instead of the usual four, its sleeves are meant to be rolled up and now comes in cotton as well as wool.

Guidelines in wearing the lumberjack shirt for the ladies and gents are the same:

1. Fit – the golden rule in buying clothes.  Not fit till you feel ill.  Just choose appropriately a size that shows the curves meant to be shown.
2. Size of plaids – the bigger the squares of a lumberjack shirt the bigger one would look.
3. Unusual colors - make it look different from the traditional lumberjack shirt.
4. Pair it – put solid colors as accessories.  Solid colors that are reflected by the colors in the lumberjack shirt so that the focus is on the shirt and not on the chaos brought about by different colors.

News: WikiLeaks' Julian Assange on Interpol's Arrest at Once

The biggest police organization, Interpol, had WikiLeaks' big boss Julian Assange on their Red Notice Alert.  This means local police of member states can arrest him and hold him for extradition.

Though the reason on Assange being on Interpol's Red Notice isn't because of his whistleblowing on the world's top leaders it is still eyebrow raising regarding the circumstances that he is currently in.

WikiLeaks is on its 291th of its 251,287 plan of document release that several world leaders already termed as the death of diplomacy.

“We're doing about 80 a day and that will step up as other media partners step in.  This organization tries to make the world more civil and act against abusive organizations that are pushing it in the opposite direction.”

As to why he isn't arrested ever at what WikiLeaks is doing, “We have been victorious, in our four-year history, over 100 legal attacks.”

Assange is on the Red List due to charges of rape and sexual molestation in Sweden that happened in August when he was giving lectures on WikiLeaks' publication of classified U.S. Military documents related to the Afghan war.

Through his lawyer, Mark Stephens, Assange affirmed that it was consensual sex.

Lifestyle: Designer of Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress High Hopes are for Bruce Oldfield

They say the April wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is going to put Britain back on the map.  This very much rings true also to the designer who would get the privelege of making Kate's wedding dress.

A favorite, Brazilian-born desiner of the Issa brand, Daniella Helayel was a strong bet together with the brand Phillipa Lepley.  That was then.  Now, British fashion designer, Bruce Oldfield is topping all bets.  He had been designing dresses for Princess Diana since 1980, the time she became a princess.  With Diana being brought to life the moment her son's engagement happened it would be no surprise if Oldfield's wedding gown would be the chosen one.

Daniella Helayel, designer of the Issa brand, touted then to design the royal wedding dress.

Entertainment: Carnie Wilson Fired from The Fresh Diet for Cheating

Make do of what you have.  It makes life less complicated.  But if a big frame that threatens your health is what one has it's really an obligation to do something about it.
Chynna Phillips, Wendy Wilson and Carnie Wilson
Carnie Wilson, the most haunting voice of Wilson Phillips and one of the daughters of Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, had always been obese.  She once reached 300 lbs. on her 5'3” frame.  Dieting, gastric bypass surgery and fitness programs were ineffective.  Weight lost was then regained.

In March she became the spokesperson for the gourmet meal delivery diet program, The Fresh Diet, where she lost 10 lbs. She was fired yesterday for cheating on cheesecakes among other foods not on the program which made her not lose the expected weight.

Anyway, her group Wilson Phillips is back.  If there is such an unmistakable harmony in music besides the Bee Gees' it is Wilson Phillips.  Composed of Chynna Phillips, daughter of Michelle and John Phillips of the 60s The Mamas and the Papas and Beach Boy's Brian Wilson's daughters Carnie and Wendy Wilson their “Christmas in Harmony” was just released.

Wilson Phillips' “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” debut at No. 27 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Chart this week.

Lifestyle: Chef Jamie Oliver's Cookbook Follows JK Rowling's Sales of Harry Potter

Cheeky British celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver, 35, is the best-selling author of Britain after JK Rowling.

The UK sales of his cookbooks including his latest, Jamie's 30-Minute Meals released at the end of September, already gained him £101.55 million.

This phenomenon of being able to sell non-fiction books at a rate of 80,000 copies a week is beefed up by his television series and Sainsbury products which he endorses.

Jamie's 30-Minute Meals' closest rival in the Guinness World Records is 35,000 copies behind.

Oliver, also known as the Naked Chef due to the simple way he cooks, already wrote 12 cookbooks and topped the bestseller charts more than 30 times.

Oliver has a £65million fortune to which he is expected to add another £10million next year.  This chef is taking in money like Premier League footballers.

Oliver successfully revolutionized the British school food program through Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.  However, the US version of this show wasn't received in a similar fashion.

Jamie Oliver sure knows how to invite good karma so much so when he declined to comment on foul-mouthed Chef Gordon Ramsay's calling him a “one pot wonder”.
