Miranda Kerr kicks off the start of summer in bikinis for Net-a-Porter!

Happy first day of summer! Ready to break out those bikinis!? Uh huh, me too!

Miranda Kerr appeared in this week’s online magazine Net-a-Porter.com, and in this week’s issue she models new swimwear. (Just shoot me already.)

In the interview, Miranda opens up about being victim to the ‘Bling Ring,’ leaving Victoria’s Secret, and the secret to keeping her marriage strong.

On having her lingerie lifted by the teen thieves now immortalized in a movie with Emma Watson:

“The weird thing is that I am not attached to things: they come and they go,” she said. “It could have been worse, that’s what I always say about everything. I mean, no one was hurt.”

On the supposedly acrimonious split with Victoria’s Secret:

“Ed [Razek, who has been casting the models for 15 years] and I are really good friends, and we both decided it was impractical for me to continue. I have such fond memories of working with them.”

On her marriage to actor Orlando Bloom:

“I am quite dominant in my career, so what really works for me when I come home, is to relax more into the feminine side,” she says. “If you’re really an alpha female, you don’t allow [your partner] to have the space to feel like the man in the relationship. Maybe I am too traditional, but men feel important when you ask for their help, instead of thinking you can do it all on your own.”

What do you think? Is letting your MAN be the MAN the trick?

Sarah Jessica Parker is launching her own line of shoes!

Sarah Jessica Parker has finally decided to turn her obsession with footwear into a brand new shoe line!

Sarah tells Vogue it was only a matter of time. “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw.” The actress will create the new line with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik. Her line will also include bags and trench coats.

The collection, with shoe prices ranging from $200 to $300 and bags going for just below $700, will sold exclusively at Nordstrom and hit stores in early 2014.

While her “SATC” character was shoe-obsessed (remember the lost Manolos episode?), Sarah Jessica’s love of high heels doesn’t quite match Carrie Bradshaw’s. “For ten or so years, I literally ran in heels. I worked 18-hour days and never took them off,” SJP told The Edit back in March. Now, unfortunately, “the chickens are coming home to roost” and Sarah Jessica limits her high-heel wearing to only the nicest shoes.

But she’s still got all that footwear knowlege stowed away. “Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes,” Parker tells Vogue.com about new venture, “and by default I learned an enormous amount. It’s hard to walk away from that.”

Makes perfect sense, no? I think she’s going to be a great designer. I can see her designing really beautiful shoes.

Nicole Kidman signs with Jimmy Choo

Nicole Kidman has just signed on to star in Jimmy Choo’s upcoming fall campaign, which will be shot by Mikael Jansson!

The shoe company said the campaign has a “cinematic feel that hints at the power and seduction of the Jimmy Choo woman.”

It is slated to break in the August editions of titles including British and American Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Elle, and W.

The campaign is Sandra Choi’s first as sole creative director of the company.

“Nicole is one of the finest actresses in the world,” said Choi. “I knew [she] could convey the empowered glamour of the brand. But she is also so nuanced and refined; she brings an attitude of defiance, strength, sensuality and elegance.”

Kidman said she has always loved fashion, “and often use it as a way to get into character.”

The actress is part of the eight-person jury of the Cannes film festival, which opens Wednesday and runs through May 26.

Can’t wait to see the ads!

I’m in love with Doodle Pants!

I’m absolutely in love with Doodle Pants, and I ain’t afraid to admit it! I was sent a couple pairs of these to give away to my 2 nieces, and I have to say they are the freaking cutest things I’ve ever seen. There is NOTHING cuter than chubby little baby legs, is there? I have a 6-month-old niece, and a 2-year-old niece, and I gave each of them a pair of these. They are so freaking cute, you’re going to die. They are thick, and warm, and bright, and colorful – and look expensive. They aren’t flimsy and won’t fall apart or lose their color after washing them. I love the little designs on the buns, seriously the cutest thing this Auntie has ever seen!!!

If they look familiar, it’s because these are the tights that Jessica Simpson puts her daughter Maxwell in. Each pair sells for only $24.99, and I think that’s an incredible deal. They will grow with your baby – for a WHILE. They stretch, and grow with your little one!

I wasn’t paid for this post – I just genuinely wanted to introduce you guys to Doodle Pants. I love them so much I want a pair for myself (if that wasn’t so weird, I’d probably do it!).
