-------

Adriana Lima (pictured) is making history. The Brazilian model and Victoria’s Secret Angel is the first pregnant model to appear in the Pirelli calendar. Lima is expecting her second child with her husband, basketball player Marko Jaric. The 2013 edition of the famed calendar, which is known for its risqué photos, was shot in Brazil by Steve McCurry.

Have you met Miss Wu? That’s the name of Jason Wu’s contemporary line created in collaboration with Nordstrom, named after the designer’s emblem of a hand-drawn owl. The collection will start with ready-to-wear, followed by accessories in 2014. “Instead of just doing ‘Jason Wu-for-less,’ the idea is to explore the other side of myself,” says Wu. [WWD]

Michael Kors is all about old Hollywood glamour, and it really shows in his Fall campaign. The designer tapped models Karmen Pedaru and Simon Nessman to play modern-day versions of the iconic pairing Carole Lombard and Clark Gable, in a Mario Testino-lensed photo shoot set in Los Angeles. This is the fifth time that the models have worked together for Kors. [WWD]

In other ad campaign news, the McQ Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 campaign, starring models Aymeline Valade and Arthur Gosse, has just been released. Valade sports a mullet-like blond ‘do in the minimalist black-and-white photos, shot by David Sims. [M-c-Q.com]

Visionaire In 3-D

-------

For its last issue, Visionaire set a world record for the largest magazine ever produced (it was fittingly dubbed the Larger Than Life issue #61). The newest edition might not win any awards for its physical size, but #62, which is all about Rio de Janeiro, has a cool factor all its own. Boldfaced names like Gisele Bëndchen, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Lea T, Adriana Lima, Richard Phillips, Karl Lagerfeld, and Marilyn Minter collaborated on a series of 3-D images celebrating Brazilian culture that appear on double-image slides. To look at them, there’s a stereoscope (which creates the illusion of depth), designed by NYC-based design studio aruliden, that comes along in the 3-D lenticular case. Visionaire 62 Rio ($375, available this week at www.visionaireworld.com) made its debut at the Iguatemi-hosted private launch party last night in São Paulo, but here, Style.com has an exclusive first look at some of the issue’s best images by Lagerfeld, Minter, and Jason Schmidt.

The Greatest Timepiece Of All Time?

-------


Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen opened its new Madison Avenue flagship Wednesday night with a party celebrating Muhammad Ali, the namesake of the latest version of its Big Pilot’s Watch and subject of the exhibition, lensed by Howard Bingham, unveiled at the store. Evander Holyfield and Larry Holmes both turned up in Muhammad Ali Big Pilot watches designed to look like the legend’s red gloves, while Ali’s daughter Miya watched from the sidelines.

But the event was far from ring pros only. Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth and Karolina Kurkova were on hand, as was a very pregnant Adriana Lima, who cut the store’s ribbon with CEO Georges Kern. “This is my husband’s favorite watch brand,” said Lima, wearing a men’s watch style herself. “It makes me feel tough!” Lost star Matthew Fox had one, too, which he said suited his offscreen hobby: flying. “I’ve been waiting for one of these watches for a year and a half,” he said. “It tells UTC time, which as a pilot, is the time you use for everything you do.”

IWCs are an offscreen, rather than onscreen, indulgence for guests Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello, too. It’s hard to imagine a luxury watch figuring into their next film, Steven Soderbergh’s male stripper flick Magic Mike. “I wore head-to-toe gold paint,” said Manganiello of his costume, “accessorized with a fig leaf.” “I got very comfortable in G-strings,” Tatum added. Both prepped for their parts with extreme fitness regimes. So who’d win in the ring? “Well, I know who’d win in a dancing competition,” laughed Manganiello. “Channing, hands down.”

Carine’s Calendar Girls

-------

Carine Roitfeld stuck to using “real people” (as opposed to models) for her guest-edited issue of Vman, due out February 14. The exception: the bonus pinup girl calendar, shot by Willy Vandeperre, featuring “supermodels and Victoria’s Secret Angels, 12 of the planet’s most celebrated creatures.” Roitfeld dressed the girls, including Joan Smalls, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, and Karolina Kurkova, in an assortment of Victoria’s Secret lingerie and customized pink American Apparel jackets. Style.com has the exclusive first look at the full calendar. Here, a few of our favorite months.

Tamara Mellon, who officially announced her departure from Jimmy Choo yesterday, is reportedly set to launch her own line. WWD notes that “funding is already in place for a Tamara Mellon brand.” [WWD]

After the Telegraph wrote an article about Adriana Lima’s pre-Victoria’s Secret show extreme diet, the model reportedly says it was just a “misunderstanding.” Lima’s new message is this: “Those teenagers out there, don’t go starving yourself or only drinking liquids. Don’t do that please!” [Huff Po]

Joseph Altuzarra took the $300,000 prize at last night’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards. The runners-up, Pamela Love and Creatures of the Wind’s design duo, Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters, each won $100,000. [WWD]
