Take it away, Lana Del Rey!

September 9, 2014 under Famous

“With her deliberate take on Ann Margret’s bombshell visuals, Lana’s slightly surreal brand of Americana retro falls in line perfectly with fashion’s recent provocative references to the past.”

– Rolling Stone

Lana Del Ray in opaque black tightsSuch a true statement! We saw some images of Lana Del Rey while looking for a model to feature here, and were convinced they were pictures taken back in the sixties. Her sixties inspired hair, makeup, and wardrobe selections took us instantly back to those days of go-go girls, vinyl boots and brightly colored tops with miniskirts!

Lana Del Rey has been the stage name of Elizabeth Grant since 2011. Elizabeth was born in 1985 and raised in Lake Placid New York. She has enjoyed successes as a singer-songwriter and model.

Currently Del Rey is one of two candidates being considered to record the theme song for the next James Bond movie. The other contender is Sam Smith, a new singing sensation from England.

Last year Lana did the hit theme song for “The Great Gatsby” – (Young and Beautiful) , and also recorded the song “Once Upon a Dream” for the Disney movie “Maleficent”.

She has had an equally successful run in fashion modeling, having graced the cover of Vogue numerous times, as well as Rolling Stone, GQ, L’Officiel, and Fashion, to name a few.

We hope you enjoy these photographs of the beautiful and talented Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, aka Lana Del Rey!

Cher in a super hot cleavage corset

April 24, 2014 under Famous

cher in a corsetThe singer Cher is known to have the most extravagant and sexiest outfits, despite her age.

Being quite a trend setter, one of the corsets that she wore actually even got other companies like Shirley of Hollywood to create similar Cher inspired designs.

On the photo here she is wearing a strappy corset to the Golden Globes red carpet event.

You can find this style in the shop section. It’s something that I think would look amazing both as a top and as a piece of lingerie.

Sofia Vergara crunching numbers

January 8, 2014 under Famous

by David, United States

sofia vergara on the beach… This recent photograph of Sofia Vergara with her boyfriend and fiancé Nick Loeb seems to contradict rumors that the relationship is in trouble; they seem to be quite happy.  The "buzz" is that Nick wants Sofia to invest in his highly successful consumer foods business "Crunchy Condiments" but that she is resisting… this is only rumor. "Crunchy Onions" topping has been successfully launched into stores across the USA, with "Crunchy Ketchup" and "Crunchy Pickles" to follow next year. So, let’s "Crunch" the numbers on Sofia:

At the age of forty one, her rise to the top has been a whirlwind of successes, with many more surely to come. Born into a wonderful and wealthy cattle rancher’s family in Columbia, Sofia began studying pre-dentistry in college.

A few years later her path took a sharp turn when she was discovered on a beach by a fashion photographer, and she began getting lucrative modeling jobs. Her first national fame across Latin America came when she did a widely broadcast Pepsi commercial. Numerous modeling and television acting roles followed, and she made her launch onto the USA scene when she signed a contract with ABC that led to a starring role on the sitcom "Modern Family" as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett.

On July 18, 2012, it was announced by Fortune Magazine that for the preceding twelve months, Gloria was the highest earning woman in US television, ringing up total sales of $19 million. Crunch that! Cha-ching!

… That kind of money could certainly help cover the marketing rollout of Nick’s new "Crunchy Pickles" topping! But, enough said. Fantasy Stockings doesn’t want to "get into a pickle" with Sofia over that one!

Here are some photographs of the beautiful and talented Sofia Vergara wearing – you guessed it – pantyhose – for all of our Fantasy Stockings friends and fans. Enjoy them, while I go out to my local grocery store to find some of those "Crunchy Onions" – they should go great on top of the hamburgers I’ve been planning for dinner! Happy Holidays to each of you, and the best of the New Year.

Romanian Singer Inna in a Nylon Bodysuit

October 12, 2013 under Famous, What to Avoid

inna singer in nylon bodysuit 2 inna singer in nylon bodysuit 3

inna singer in nylon bodysuit 4I love Inna’s music and sometimes I listen to her disco tunes.  Inna is a Romanian singer who seems to please people with her voice, but now decided to please some nylon connoisseurs with her bodysuit.  Encased in this pantyhose-like sheer outfit, she even managed to flash her nipple a couple of times at Summer festival in Belgium, 2010.

inna singer in nylon bodysuitI can understand that it’s hard to keep the nylon bodysuit outfit from shifting while dancing on those stiletto heels, but what’s up with the thong that seems to have quite rough seams?  Either seamless fabric or maybe an additional layer of skin tone nylon under her outfit would do the trick to cover those parts. I would also love it if her bodysuit would cover her feet too.

But either way, she did a good job performing her songs Hot and Deja Vu despite her controversial nylon bodysuit and all the nerves prior to the show.  Perhaps with a body like that she is allowed to wear such nylon outfits!  Romania proves once again to be a very sexually open-minded place.

Chica Bomb and Sex Appeal

October 2, 2013 under Famous

Mayra Munoz Chica Bomb with Dan Balan

Interview with Dan Balan:

How were Chica Bomb Girls selected?

For those of you who don’t know, Chica Bomb was a popular hit a few years back.  Dan Balan idea and Katie DiCicco voice had the whole Europe dancing to a very provocative video clip of women in wet white shirts, thongs, and lingerie.  But based on what factors were those women selected?  Below Dan Balan explains what exactly he was looking for – sex appeal.

Translated by Helene, Belarus 

Q: Dan, could you please tell us who was choosing girls for your music clip Chica Bomb?

A: This clip I was making with Hype Williams. This is a famous American clip-maker (director), one of the best. Usually I design all my clips on my own, do casting on my own, too. I even make video on my own. But this time all was more difficult. Williams is a star, he does everything as he wants. But I would be satisfied only if the clip would reflect my vision. I explained to Williams what kind of girls I would like to see in this clip.

He told me: “Ok, I will find super-girls.” But when I came to Los Angeles, I saw the girls that Hype had found, and I absolutely did not like them. Those were the girls from Colombia, with beautiful voluptious bodies, but they were rather vulgar.

Usually such girls are filmed in rap music clips. I was going to make an erotic clip, but this eroticism should be beautiful. I imagined very clearly what kind of girls I need in my clip, how they shall be dressed, how they shall move, look, how they shall act while filming. They had to have so called “romance with the camera”.

I put off the filming of the clip and made casting on my own. As a result I have chosen four girls, not the most beautiful, but with real sex appeal. During the casting I saw girls who were much more beautiful, several times more beautiful than those whom I have chosen, simply fantastically beautiful. But when we started filming we saw that that it would not work.

Sex-appeal is not connected with appearance, this is something which one cannot comprehend, something magical and enchanting from inside, and appearance has nothing to do with it. For example, the girl, which was filmed in the most effective way… well, first I didn`t like her at all. But when she started to move to music and dance, I realized that this is one I was looking for.

Celebrities in Mock Stocking Pantyhose

September 21, 2013 under Famous

mock stockings pantyhose and celebrities

As the weather is getting colder, Vancouver is filled with Asian girls walking around in mock stocking pantyhose.  I even saw one in Costco the other day with runs in the sheer part all over that didn’t seem to bother her.  Today also spotted a few in transit.

I wrote more on the subject of mock stockings for the next issue of Finn Magazine (contact me for a promo code for that).  Even modeled in pantyhose like that for them, also wearing high heels and short dress, which made my legs look super sexy.  I must say though that Asian girls here only wear such style with flat shoes that are completely non-feminine and jean shorts, almost as an attempt to play down the sexiness of the design.

If I wear something like that, I want to look like a real sex bomb, so in my case flat shoes are out of question. My next “homework” for such designs is to experiment with different colours of mock stocking pantyhose to see which ones work best with my outfits.

Which one of these should I start with?

Dolly Parton and Dolly the Sheep – what’s the connection?

September 13, 2013 under Famous
Dolly the sheep

Dolly the Sheep is named after Dolly Parton

Dolly the Sheep was named after Dolly Parton’s big breasts!

You may be surprised to learn that the first cloned mammal, Dolly the sheep, was actually named after the country singer Dolly Parton!  Keith Campbell was the scientist in charge of the project who named the sheep after this voluptuous woman because the cell that the clone came from was a mammary gland cell.

Perhaps I would not know who this country singer was if it wouldn’t be for the sheep since I don’t listen to that kind of music.  But here are some some photos of the star!  It also seems that she loved to wear pantyhose and stockings.

Being one of the most famous country singers, Dolly Parton was actually invited to pose for Playboy several times, but declined.  Her large breasts were quite an asset! But she has a big heart as well because she is involved in charity, philanthropy, and in her Dollywood Foundation project. I would love to hear your comments about this flamboyant beauty!

 

Elka accused of plagiarism of Hot Hot Heat song “Shame On You”

August 30, 2013 under Famous

elka singer in a pink dressRecently I’ve been visiting Victoria, BC for the weekend.  It’s a city on Vancouver island, full of local artists.  Maybe I would not even mention this fact, but coincidentally I was just reading about how their local band called Hot Hot Heat got one of their songs copied by a famous European singer.

Russian/Ukrainian singer, who goes under the name of Elka (pronounced Yolka), for the past two years gained enormous popularity in former USSR for her song called “Provence”.  But she is now accused of plagiarism, the chorus of her song is almost identical to the tune from the Hot Hot Heat song called “Shame On You”.

You can listen to the music in the video below where they alternate between the Canadian original and the song that is thought to be the knock off.  Obviously, Elka completely denies such accusations and says that the song came to her composer from outer space by SMS.

elka singer in white socksCopyright violations make many of us upset, but think of it this way, you’d probably would never find out about this Hot Hot Heat song if a popular singer wouldn’t snatch it, as they say.

But why is it that the same tune performed by Elka got so much attention and the original didn’t?  Perhaps because of her beautiful video clip, uplifting lyrics (her song is about her exciting anticipation of her trip tomorrow to the suburbs of Paris), and of course her large promotional budget.

Would you say that it is possible that Elka’s composer didn’t actually copy that song and simply came up with such a similar tune?  I’d love to hear your opinion.

Barbara Palvin: Huge Success, and Younger than Twenty!

February 11, 2013 under Famous

Barbara Palvin Victorias Secret Lingerie Photoshoot13

Rising young star Barbara Palvin comes from one of the most beautiful cities in the world – Budapest, Hungary.  She was born on October 8, 1993.  Looking into her sky blue eyes, one sees purity and sincerity. Barbara conveys a fresh and youthful look to the world.

 

From early in her childhood, Barbara dreamed of having a beautiful life as a supermodel.  She started her career in the modeling business at the age of 13, when she was scouted by monsieur Balazh from Icon Model Management, still her manager today.

jrix1z63326xjxi3

 

It all began when one lucky day she was walking with her mother around Budapest, and upon returning home found an invitation from Balazh to do test shootings.  In the invitation he wrote, "Barbara, you will be a great model – I promise you!"  She felt like she was in a fairy tale, that her dream was coming true, but didn’t suspect that it would happen so soon and easily.

 

Barbara-Palvin-8Barbara was the first 17 year old model to walk for Prada. After her modeling success with Prada Collection, she continued to get notice from the industry and appeared on catwalks for Miu Miu, Giles, Nina Ricci, and Louis Vuitton. In 2010 Hungarian Glamour magazine presented a photo shoot with the now famous Barbara Palvin, and in 2011 the then only 18-year-old model posed for the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar US, with photography by by Benjamin Alexander Huseby. Stylists gave Barbara the look of a true lady dressed in Armani, Moschino and Givenchy.

 

In 2011 Barbara  presented the Calzedonia brand, and became an Angel for Victoria’s Secret. Then, in 2012 she signed on with L’Oreal Paris.

 

Barbara Palvin in beautiful lingerie with black stockings and garter beltStylist Miranda Almond once said that Barbara combines the beauty of Natalia Vodianova and young Brook Shields. Palvin’s facial features are surprisingly adaptable for any look or transformation. Sometimes simply changing the shape of her bangs reveals an absolutely different person. Despite her unique facial features and slightly upturned nose, Barbara sometimes is hard to recognize in a photo.

 

Barbara is a truly interesting person who also behaves very professionally during her photo shoots.  Could it be her beautiful bone structure and good figure, in combination with her positive attitude that creates so much hype around her? With her beautiful complexion and hair, she was surely destined to become one of the best-known young models.
u6p6fdl4l19of6luBarbara always looks natural, no matter the amount of make-up she wears, or the high fashion nature of her poses. She always comes through appearing as a beautiful girl who achieved much and isn’t going to stop.

 

It may seem that to become a model one would need only to have a pretty face and harmonious figure – but this is not so. The hard work of modeling can involve standing in one pose for hours, carefully and accurately following instructions, taking rigorous good care of the body, and no sweets!!!  Six day work weeks are common. A model may have to endure ten long hours at a photo shoot until being told "we are done".

Barbara-Palvin

When at the beginning of her career, a model has little to say and much to learn. Her lack of experience puts her in the position of needing to demonstrate that she can work hard and learn quickly.  By the age of 19 Barbara proved herself in all of these areas and more. Barbara has an excellent portfolio which portrays her as graceful, beautiful, fashionable and packed with energy.

 

Some of Barbara’s favorite things: model Natalia Vodianova, designer Karl Lagerfeld, and she especially loves the song by Adele “Someone like you”.

 

Barbara Palvin 11

Barbara combines her work as model with university study. Though it sounds quite challenging, she can’t imagine her life without work which “allows me to travel all over the world, meet interesting people, and learn a lot of things about real life”.

 

When asked to describe herself in three words, she said "useful, crazy, and honest."  The thing she loves most in her work is meeting lovely people.

Recently Barbara was accused of causing a rupture of the relations of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez!  This was due to the 18-year-old Justin and 19-year-old Barbara being noticed together on Broadway at a showing of “The Lion King”.  A bit later, the model published photos with Bieber on her  page in Twitter. As a result, the social network was flooded with angry comments about Barbara, claiming her to be responsible for the rupture of relations between Bieber and Gomez.  In her defense, the model wrote on her Twitter page twice that there is no relationship between them.

 

Barbara Palvin Victorias Secret Lingerie Photoshoot7Barbara Palvin’s modeling biography is short – as of this writing, she isn’t even twenty years old! Many say she has the potential to become a supermodel, and all of us here at Fantasy Stockings agree. Barbara is considered to be a person who conveys confidence both in public and in front of the camera. "Working with her is a pleasure" says one of her associates, "…the girl is very charming, cheerful and interesting …"

Barbara Palvin ranks in the 23rd place in “The money girls” rating according to the models.com review. With each passing day Barbara is becoming more popular in the world of fashion and glamour.
