Let’s face it, they’re finding someway to tune in to this catwalk whether it be “watching the game with the boys,” indulging in a little closet DVR action or perusing post-press pics in glossy magazines at the nearest Barnes & Noble’s bathroom.

Gents! Don’t miss out on this. The VS Show airs on Dec. 4 on CBS.
Heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated his 37th birthday this past Friday at hotspot Avenue. It seems like just yesterday he was 23 years old and stealing everyone's hearts in Titanic. Oh, how the time flies. In typical alturistic Leo fashion, he donated proceeds (some $1.3 million) of the party to his non-profit, The Leonard DiCaprio Foundation. The foundation funds protection projects for wildlife as well as clean water and disaster relief in third world countries. By adding fees to drinks and bottle services he was able to collect funds from the well-endowed crowd that included billionaires Stewart Rahr and Len Blavatnik along with a slew of Hollywood heavy hitters such as Benicio Del Toro, Robert DeNiro, Naomi Campbell and Ed Norton. Additionally he auctioned items off, which included a 15 liter bottle of Veuve Cliquot painted by Peter Tunney. The bottle sold for a whopping $50,000!
Why do magazines always have to make a list of the sexiest women in the world? Aren't men able to choose which girls they find the most attractive? Do they really have to check if their choice is the good one?
Anyway, the new classification of this year's hottest girls (according to DT Spain) just came out...
Coming in at #1 is Russian model hottie Irina Shayk.
Recently divorced from Scarlett Johansson scored the #4 spot.
Heidi Klum came in at #10 while Alessandra Ambrosio and Gisele Bundchen ranked #8 and #14 respectively.
That's enough talking, you might enjoy some pictures better right?
Two locals from Miami Beach, Tini Courtney and Jason Masik team up to establish their own line of one of a kind, handmade accessories. Tini is attending the Miami International University of Art and Design and loves to collect rare and unusual trinkets from around the world. Jason considers himself to be a free spirit and shares an affinity for nature with his partner. Together, the spirit of the wild, primal energy that flows from nature inspires them, as they unite to form H.O.W.L. or Handle Only With Love. The brand name H.O.W.L. represents their concept with a collection of dream catcher necklaces, made from stones found in places like Hawaii and Tibet. They construct each piece with an eclectic mix of their special findings, along with a promise of positive energy to whoever wears it. Tini is an avid antique fair visitor, which gives the line an heirloom feeling, making these exotic conversation pieces the essential must have.
Nashlly Sokoli, a 20 year old model out of Newark has been slowly but surely pushing her way into the modeling world this past year. Joonbug was lucky enough to get an interview with Nashlly between her modeling gigs to find out a little bit about her and the work she has done. Nashlly has a drive that never let’s up. She’s persistent which will undoubtedly lead her to great success in the modeling industry.
Joonbug: When and how did you first start modeling?
Nashlly: I started modeling a little less than a year ago. I always wanted to model but I never had the time to set up shoots or get started because I was always in school, doing sports , or working. I also had the fear of being rejected since I am only 5’6’’. I don’t let that stop me now though. I think I’ve built enough confidence to go up against models who are 6 foot without heels. I think my attitude and personality is shown in my pictures and so far I am proud of my work.
