Alessandra Ambrosio Is a Blogger Now, 'Man of Steel' Costume Designer Distracted by Henry Cavill's 'Perfection,' and More!

(Bauer Griffin)

Alessandra Ambrosio launched a fashion blog, aptly titled A by A.

Man of Steel's costume designer, Michael Wilkinson, on dressing Henry Cavill for the film. "I think the toughest thing for my team was not to be distracted by Henry’s perfection–he really is an incredible specimen of humanity!" Somebody fetch this man a fainting couch. And some smelling salts.

Christian Louboutin designs his shoes for men. Kind of. “I never forget that shoes also have to please men. As a man, I totally understand looking at a girl and saying, ‘Darling, we’re having dinner together tonight, so do you mind to change?’ I understand that type of mentality from a man who loves his wife, his woman. He’s concerned about the way you look. It’s not an ugly thing. I understand also that a woman could not care. I like my design to please women, but also to please to men. I don’t like the kind of design that men are like, ‘Oh, God.’ I just don’t like that.” [WWD]
