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.

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]

The annual Victoria’s Secret runway spectacular (complete with a performance by Kanye West this year) is just around the corner on November 29. In the meantime, VS is rolling out its holiday campaign. For the TV ad, debuting this Sunday during Desperate Housewives, director Michael Bay filmed Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, and Erin Heatherton strutting around the streets of Prague (scantily clad in the new Dream Angels collection—available in limited edition with rhinestones for the holidays—and wings, naturally). “The city of Prague was the perfect place to shoot because it had a very regal and magical feeling,” Swanepoel tells Style.com. “It’s always so nice to have all of the Angels in one city!” Here’s an exclusive sneak peak at the new ad and the collection before it hits stores November 1.
The Man Making Fashion Insiders Smile, Adriana Lima’s Talented Little Talker, Surface To Air Bursts On The New York Scene, And More…
In fashion, what is essential is visible to the eye. However, fashion’s dentist—Bernard Touati—believes the opposite is true. (Root canals, we guess, are pretty essential to take care of). T profiled the French dentist who will “see Diane von Furstenberg on Yom Kippur if the film director Danièle Thompson asks him to, and Madonna can come in in a pinch.” [T]

The Paris-based “multidisciplinary creative group” Surface to Air is coming up for a breather in New York next month.

Those of us for whom Victoria’s Secret’s annual Fashion Show is not a rite of passage will be forgiven for not ardently awaiting the unveiling of this year’s Fantasy Bra, the gem-encrusted undergarment that sets the tone for the runway’s over-the-top underwear extravaganza. Those of you who already have November 30′s show DVR’ed, the wait is over. Angel Adriana Lima debuted the Diamond Fantasy Bra this morning outside of the Victoria’s Secret Soho flagship, coupling it with what we think is the company’s idea of eveningwear. (Can you hear the marketing department? Yes! The Diamond Fantasy Bra is completely acceptable to wear as a top!) To be fair, the bra, which Victoria’s Secret blinged out with help from Italian jewelry brand Damiani, retails for a cool $2 million, so it would be great if you could wear it somewhere other than the bedroom. Last year’s Harlequin Fantasy Bra, however, was $3 million, so maybe this is the year to dream big. Tell us: Would you turn a Diamond Fantasy into a reality?
