It will be two-times the bejeweled bras at this year's Victoria's Secret fashion show. For the first time ever, the lingerie retailer will feature two Fantasy Bras at this year's holiday-time ogle-fest of undergarments. Veteran catwalkers ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO and ADRIANA LIMA have been well-endowed with the "honor." People's Stylewatch says each model will wear "mirror-image sapphire, ruby and diamond lingerie sets" designed by PASCAL MOUAWAD and valued at $2 million apiece. Each set contains 16-thousand gems, along with 18 karat gold jeweled body pieces. The push-up get-ups all took more than 18-hundred hours to create. The fashion show takes place later this month in London. It will air December 9th on CBS. (Bartha)
The brand-new One World Trade Center --also known as the Freedom Tower-- opens for business today.
The building --which, at 104 floors, is the highest in the Western Hemisphere-- already has its first tenant --the Conde Nast publishers, which will occupy the 20th to the 44th floors. About 175 employees at the company are expected to move in today.
The NY Times reports ANNA WINTOUR, the editor of Vogue magazine who inspired the novel and film "The Devil Wears Prada," will move to the 25th floor along with her staff, while GRAYDON CARTER, the editor of Vanity Fair magazine, will take the 41st floor.
The building has already leased 58 percent of its three million square feet.
Ever take the kids to a corn maze... then get lost?
It's happened more than once this year --a family gets lost in the maze and calls 911 for help! In Salem, MA, a couple with two small children got lost in their corn maze and called for help. It took a police officer and his K-9 dog about 10 minutes to find them.
And, in Dixon, CA, the cops get phone calls every weekend from the 63-acre Cool Patch Pumpkins maze, which they say is the largest corn maze in the world.
But 911 officials say it's not a good idea to call them because that prevents the dispatcher from handling actual real emergencies.
So this year's tip is... either check out the maze in the daylight before you bring the kids at night... or take the kids in the daylight, where they --and you-- can find your way out!
PATRICK SCHWARZENEGGER is really a chip off the old block. The UK's Daily Mail spotted the Hollywood prince leaving his home with none other than MILEY CYRUS last Friday after spending lots of quality time inside.
ARNOLD's chip off the old block has had a soft spot for the "Hannah Montana" star for years and admitted way back in 2011 that: "My eye is set on Miley."
Phone starter: Did you fall in love with someone, then wait years for them to notice you? How did it turn out when you finally caught their eye? Was it all you'd imagined or better off from afar? (Lee)
A guy in France dropped dead after swallowing 56 shots of liquor during a drinking contest.
Police in Clermont-Ferrand in central France say the unidentified 50-something man was trying to beat the pub's previous record of 55 shots. Witnesses say he downed around 30 glasses of booze in about one minute, then followed that with another 25-shots. He didn't die immediately, but he was driven home in a "drunken stupor." The next morning, he went into a coma and suffered a heart attack before being rushed to the hospital. He died in the emergency room. (Still)
