Miranda Kerr in Christian Dior Sunglasses


Miranda Kerr gave birth this past February, but you’d never have guessed it after seeing her flat and stretch mark-less stomach during Tuesday night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Billed as “the sexiest night on television,” the annual event featured Miranda and the rest of the famed Victoria’s Secret Angels wearing some of the hottest lingerie you’ve ever seen; musical guests Maroon 5, Kanye West, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj; an audience full of drooling celebs; and a whole lotta glam and glitter. Oh, and let’s not forget the pink carpet! Gorgeous 28-year-old Miranda, who was born in Australia and raised in New South Wales, missed last year’s show because she was pregnant with Flynn, her 10-month-old son with hunky husband Orlando Bloom.

This year, though, she was given the honor of wearing the bejeweled $2.5 million Fantasy Treasure bra during the show and was given a standing ovation when she strutted her stuff on the catwalk dressed as an ice peacock during the finale. Orlando was in the front row—probably staring open-mouthed like the rest of us. Want to look like Miranda without spending millions? She’s seen here sporting a pair of fun and funky cat eye Christian Dior sunglasses, which are available in five frame/lens color combinations.

Eva Mendes in D&G Sunglasses

The gorgeous Eva Mendes sure has a man who knows how to make a girl feel special. Hunky actor Ryan Gosling, 31, surprised his love of two months on the set of the film Holly Motors in Paris, France this past Friday, insiders confirmed to Us Weekly. He apparently flew out to be with Eva as soon as she wrapped the film. “The film was a fairly small production and Eva was good about being focused and without many distractions on set.” A second insider added that Eva, 37 (and verging on “cougar” territory here), “was totally shocked” when Ryan showed up unannounced. “They were talking all the time so she had no hints that he was coming,” the second insider told Us. The source added that Eva was really homesick and missed him, even though the shoot was relatively short.

The following day, the celeb couple, who reportedly began dating in September, was caught by photogs sneaking in a few kisses while strolling arm-in-arm  in Paris. Ah, the joy of being a beautiful couple in love sauntering the romantic streets of Paris. Question is are Ryan– whose exes include the likes of  Rachel McAdams, Sandra Bullock and Kirsten Dunst–and Eva a match made in heaven. As always in Tinseltown, time will tell. In the meantime, Eva is certainly ravishing in these stand-out, edgy D&G shades. –rpuccia

Nick Jonas in Ray Ban Sunglasses


Seems like heartthrob Nick Jonas is in no hurry to reunite with his brothers any time soon. With his own hit band (the Administration), a big Broadway role in the works (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying), and a small screen part in a new network drama next year (Steven Spielberg-produced Smash opposite Anjelica Huston and Debra Messing), Nick’s solo career is certainly on the fast track.

Still, the humble hunk never misses a chance to let folks know he “feels blessed” to have been given all of these fantastic opportunities and to give back, he recently got the chance to give an unknown aspiring singer her own shot at a music career. He helped lead the Quaker Chewy Superstar Search and awarded a 14-year-old girl from Florida with a management contract and the chance to record a song he wrote and produced. “It felt like an amazing opportunity and it was targeted at ages 8 to 14. So it was a specific age group that we were going after and basically wanted to find a really talented young person who was as passionate about music as I was at that age. It was so great to see young people on all these videos get involved and share their voice with me and the Quaker team.” This hottie has it all, and he gets serious style points in a sexy white hoodie, driving cap and two-tone  Ray Ban wayfarers.  –rpuccia

Kat Von D in Dolce & Gabbana Sunglasses


Kat Von D was famously the rebound girl for Jesse James after his rather tasteless, infidelity-ravaged divorce from Sandra Bullock last year. Our fave tattoo artist and the motorcycle mogul called it quits for good in September following a nixed engagement and a brief reconciliation. In a recent Facebook post, Kat aired out her dirty laundry by venting that Jesse cheated on her as well. (What a shocker, right?) “Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year,” she wrote in the post, entitled “Thank You, Jesse James.”  “I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship,” she added. “All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love.”

Kat did admit in her post that she thought Jesse was vilified and unfairly depicted in the media. “There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people’s ability to change for the better,” she wrote.  She indicated that the post was about making peace with herself, and forgiving herself for making some bad decisions.  She may be challenged at picking men, but she certainly makes the grade in choosing these bad-to-the-bone Dolce & Gabanna gold aviators.  –rpuccia

Charlize Theron in Christian Dior Sunglasses


Charlize Theron recently opened up about not being used to being alone in the December issue of Vogue Mag. “I’ve never been single,” the actress, 36, reveals . “This is the first time in my life. From the time I was 19, I’ve been in relationships, literally gone from one to the other within a month.” The South African beauty split with love of nine years Stuart Townsend in January 2010. She admits that she was desperate to save her relationship with Townsend. “It was sinking, and I had to give it a fight,” she explains. “I really wanted to try and make it work. That was the priority. I wouldn’t do it any different way.”

But on the brighter side, according to Charlize, the breakup helped reinvigorate her acting career. She has several new films in the works–including Young Adult and as the Evil Queen in 2012′s darker adaptation of Snow White and the Huntsman with Twilight phenom Kristen Stewart. “I really, really missed it, she said.   She even comments on Kristen’s talent in the interview saying, “Kristen is just living this to the max and still has a sense of humor about it. There’s this really lovely quality about her…” Charlize adds, “I’m looking forward to killing her and taking her beauty…That’s what happens, right?” Well, Charlize packs a ton of beauty all on her own, especially in these chic Christian Dior shades. –rpuccia
