In this episode of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 17 which was held in Greece. The six contenders had to pose in a big bowl of Greek salad wearing a swimwear which was sponsored by BENCH a popular clothing brand in the Philippines. As expected Shannon refused to do the challenge therefore she was eliminated.

Georgina Wilson a Filipino-British top model and a VJ had made an appearance as a wardrobe stylist of Bench but it was so abrupt I could hardly recognize her.

Before the photo shoot the finalist had an opportunity to collaborate with Michael Cinco a Dubai base Filipino fashion designer for their final runaway gown but sadly only the top 2 finalist could wear it on the runaway. He’s eco-friendly couture gown was also featured in cycle 16.

Again Allison had won the mini-challenge but Dominique had  the best photo for this episode.

How lovely to hear that the children of an A-list celebrities manage to enjoy their play time despite paparazzi clustered around the road trying to take a snap with Angelina’s kids which includes Zahara, Shiloh and her twins Vivienne and Knox. The Jolie-Pitt clan is currently in UK as Brad shoots his new film World War Z while the Stefani-Rossdale clan is currently staying in their home in UK. See photos below.

Lady Gaga in MTV Video Music Aid Japan

Lady Gaga’s eccentric choice in fashion always left her fans amaze. During the MTV Video Music Aid Japan last Saturday she showed her blonde hair and big black eyes drawn in her pupil.

It reminds me of her Hello Kitty 35th Anniversary Celebration photos wherein she wore this big red ribbon imitating the famous cartoon character of sanrio. It was photograph by Markus Klinko and Indrani, the famous  celebrity photographer.

Also, there was a portion of her bad romance music video wherein her eyes had been purposely edited to make it look bigger.

I guess she's really a big fan of anime that's why she like pretending to have that huge eye.

Emma Watson in Vogue

Emma Watson, famously known as Hermione Granger in the blockbuster movie Harry Potter had become an iconic fashion figure in Hollywood today. She will be on the cover of Vogue July 2011 issue and she will also reveal some details of her personal life, before and after the Harry Potter franchise, her struggle for education, her new project, her interest in fashion and her points of view about love, dating and feminism.
Emma’s statement:
 “I have had no control over my life. I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it.”  
Which only proves that being rich and famous has its price.
Daniel Radcliffe describes his relationship with Emma:
“Very much like brother and sister, and when one or the other of us was having a tricky moment in our lives, it was often that we would confide in each other. We would also help each other with relationship advice; particularly funny were the moments when we would help each other compose texts to the most recent flames in either of our lives (not too flirty, but not too subtle either!). It was certainly a case of the blind leading the blind, but it was extremely funny.”
Emma’s struggle for education:
“I have felt for the last ten years I have had this battle; I’ve been fighting so hard to have an education. It’s been this uphill struggle. I was Warner Bros.’ pain in the butt. I was their scheduling conflict. I was the one who made life difficult. I just realized at one point that I can’t fight everything. I have to move in the direction of it—and go with it.”    
Emma for fashion:
“I didn’t realize what I was taking on. I was doing twelve-hour days on Harry Potter and then coming home to work for two more hours, sizing and cutting designs.”
Emma meeting James Franco:
“It was such a relief to speak to someone who is trying to do the same thing I’m doing. I talked to him about juggling studying and making films and going backward and forward. He’s not afraid or limited by what he fears people will say about it.”
Emma for love:
“I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love—and it being more important and special than anything and everything else.”
