Victoria’s Secret‘s debuted their new seamless Showstopper bra ($45-$49.50) today, and we stopped by the launch party to chat with Adriana Lima about one of her favorite topics—lingerie! “I go with my mood,” the model said, on choosing which bra to wear each day. “During the day I’ll use something lighter, and if I go out at night I’ll put on something va va voom.” Lima, who washes her bras after each use, boxes to keep herself in Angel shape. “Boxing is the most intense workout you can do. Sometimes you can burn 1000 calories per workout and I go everyday.” Her other beauty secret? Sleep! “Sleeping is very important because you can eat healthy and work out as much as you want, but if you don’t sleep at night you’re not going to stay in shape.” Good advice!

Victoria’s Secret is launching a new wear-with-anything bra—the Showstopper! Designed to disappear under dresses and tops, the bra comes in three styles with a variety of fall shades including fuschia, deep blue, paisley, black, white and nude. “It’s smooth on the skin and doesn’t show under clothing,” Adriana Lima told us. As for Lima’s most showstopping quality? “My eyes and sense of humor!” Available in sizes from 34B-38DD, the bra hits stores on Tuesday, August 9th, and prices range from $45-$49.50. Press play to check out the sexy video of the Victoria’s Secret Angels working the style!
Natalie Portman‘s maternity style is evolving on the red carpet. Last night, the Black Swan star (and February cover girl!) wore a halter-style Vena Cava sheath to the premiere of her latest film, No Strings Attached, and she recently wore a Vionnet dress with studded collar and cuffs to the Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala and a Jason Wu silk chiffon tiered dress at the People’s Choice Awards. As Portman’s pregnancy progresses—and she gears up to walk the Golden Globes red carpet this Sunday—she has plenty of well-dressed celebrity moms to take style cues from.
