Victoria's Secret released the third issue of its 2013 swim catalogue, titled "Summer of Sexy." And to showcase this latest round of swimwear, Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Erin Heatherton, and Maryna Linchuk took the beaches (once again) in a lineup of very sexy looks. From the curve-enhancing push-up iterations — complete with gold-chain detailing and lacy overlays — to the retro ruffle-trimmed suits, to the sportier floral-printed bandeaus and bottoms, this is the kind of warm-weather styling that actually applies, albeit with a much sexier VS tinge, to the getaways we'll we dreaming of when Winter hits. So if you've got surf, sun, and sand on your mind — and in your sights — then click on for a preview of the swim catalogue now, and shop the collection at Victoria's Secret. — Additional reporting by Marisa Tom
A lot of our favourite stars snuck in some personal time this week, hanging out with their partners and families, stealing kisses and sharing big news with the world. Rachael Finch and her new husband Michael Miziner announced that they're expecting a baby, just over two months after their wedding, while Victoria Beckham kept her own baby, Harper, close when they took in husband and dad David's soccer game in Paris. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner looked closer (and cuter) than ever, while Ryan Reynolds got up close and personal with a furry friend at a premiere. Also at premieres? Jess Mauboy and the cast of hit Aussie film The Sapphires, Olivia Wilde and the cast of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and more. And then there were the Victoria's Secret Angels . . .

With less formal occasions on the calendar for celebrities this week, we've been given the chance check out how our favourite style setters dress when they're off-duty? Diane Kruger flashed a hint of her quirky casual style with pink jeans and a too-cool laser-cut bag by Alexander McQueen, while Jessica Alba rocked a bright yellow jumper and some rocker-chic accessories. On duty were Victoria's Secret Angels Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio, who all were gorgeous as ever in very different ensembles. Candice opted for pants (a rarity for VS models!) in a chic, '50s-style look, while Alessandra rocked an Aussie label and Karlie went the black dress route. And then there was Emma Stone with a nifty styling trick helping her land on our top 10 list. See who else made the cut!
Alessandra Ambrosio and a Peter Pilotto-clad Candice Swanepoel linked up with Karlie Kloss, who donned a sexy Cushnie et Ochs dress, to celebrate Victoria's Secret's new swim collection at a party in Beverly Hills last night. The girls posed together and snapped pictures with Steven Tyler at the star-studded bash. The celebrations were well-deserved after a jam-packed day of promotional duties. Alessandra, Karlie and Candice donned colourful bikinis at the VS launch earlier that morning, where we chatted with them about their favourite vacation spots and got tips on choosing the best bikini for your body.
While Karlie, Candice and Alessandra had fun celebrating the brand's new 2013 swim line, their fellow Angel Miranda Kerr was not so fortunate. Miranda wore a neck brace yesterday while running errands in LA after reportedly being injured in a car accident on Monday.
After a long day poolside showing off the latest line-up of Victoria's Secret bikinis, the VS Angels slipped into their cocktail attire to play hostesses for the label's 2013 swim launch party last night. True to form, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, and Karlie Kloss brought a trio of looks that didn't short on the sex appeal. Alessandra showed her affinity for sequins and mini hemlines in a sliver-toned sheer and embellished Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti dress, which she finished with pointed-toe pumps. Candice, too, flaunted her famous figure, albeit in a calf-length, bold-printed Peter Pilotto sheath, which she complemented with an understated updo and simple black pumps. And, if you're thinking Karlie's cut-out Cushnie et Ochs dress looks familiar, you'd be right; the supermodel stepped out in a very similar Michael Kors style at this year's Grammys — a testament to the fact that you don't mess with a good thing. While this cast of Angels could make just about anything look good, we're asking you to choose just one best dressed. Who gets your vote?
Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel and Karlie Kloss donned colourful bikinis to launch Victoria's Secret's 2013 swim collection in LA earlier today. The Angels, all decked out in Victoria's Secret, playfully posed for the cameras in front of a pool as they prepared for a day of promotions. Later in the day, the girls hosted a live Twitter chat with fans and took part in a meet and greet at the brand's Beverly Center store. The trek to the photo op wasn't a long one for Alessandra, who has been working on a new VS bikini campaign in Malibu over the past week. She, Candice and Karlie are all great ambassadors for the sexy swimwear collection since they are all heavily featured in the new Victoria's Secret swimsuit catalogue.
Victoria's Secret just released the second issue of its 2013 swim catalogue, and to showcase this latest round of swimwear, the Angels took to the beaches of Tulum, Mexico. Namely, Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Barbara Palvin, Erin Heatherton and Behati Prinsloo provided the signature VS sex appeal in a sunny lineup of little bikinis and playful one-pieces. From the curve-enhancing push-up iterations, to the retro ruffle-trimmed suits, to the sportier striped bandeaus and bottoms, this is the kind of warm-weather styling that already has us looking forward to next Summer. So if you've still got surf, sun, and sand on your mind — and in your sights — click on for a preview of the swim catalogue now, then shop the collection at Victoria's Secret.

If we're going to listen to anyone's advice on how to look and feel sexy on today, it's going to be from Victoria's Secret Angels. We caught up with models Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge in New York City recently, where the ladies were preparing early for Cupid's big day. They let us in on their Valentine's Day plans and the beauty looks they think work best on date night.
Victoria's Secret Angels Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge linked up for a Valentine's Day event at the Herald Square store in NYC yesterday. The girls showed off the line's new bra and fragrance in honour of the upcoming holiday. We caught up with Lily at the event to find out how she is preparing for Valentine's Day, and she revealed that she likes to "make a little extra effort and wear a sexier fragrance." She went on to explain that the holiday, to her, is about "having fun and feeling good about yourself." Lily also let us in on her plans for a special Valentine's Day — her first as a mum — saying, "It's very exciting, I am going to be in Nashville with my husband and my daughter, and we have a date planned. I am very excited for it."
We also caught up with Candice at the event, who revealed that she will be spending her Valentine's Day on holiday. She shared her excitement about her upcoming trip, saying, "I will be in Brazil enjoying the sun and the beach. I feel sexiest on the beach." The Valentine's Day promotion was just Candice's latest Victoria's Secret obligation. Last week, Candice wore a collection of bikinis for a sexy shoot in St. Barts. Candice was able to sneak in a bit of fun in between work events. She was one of the many celebrities watching the Super Bowl in New Orleans on Monday.
There were many stars who attended the Super Bowl and its pre-game festivities in New Orleans this past weekend — and they were happy to share their social snaps with the world. Beyoncé Knowles celebrated her successful Super Bowl half-time show with Jay-Z backstage while Alicia Keys got cosy with Swizz Beatz on the field after singing the national anthem before the game. Meanwhile, Channing Tatum took part in the NFL Honor Awards and Ian Somerhalder played a celebrity football game with Nina Dobrev.
