9am news: Angelina Jolie snubbed by David Beckham, plus Balmain to enter the handbag business?

15 July 2009

Rumours have been a-flying for weeks now that Angelina Jolie was set to star in ‘the sexiest advert ever' for Armani Underwear alongside David and Victoria Beckham. But it looks like the campaign will remain the stuff of dreams. As Mr Beckham puts it, ‘At the end of the day, I wouldn't do it because I'm married'. [Times]

Remember Canadian crooner Alanis Morisette? Now you can get a slice of her distinctly alternative style with her line of denim. Wonder if she's trying to be Ironic. [Nylon]

French fashion house Balmain, hot label du jour and go-to brand for all the cool kids in town, is flirting with the handbag business. There are reports of around half a dozen rock'n'roll style numbers being shown to Parisian retailers for the pre-collections. Place your bets now as to who'll be spotted with theirs first. We say Beyoncé. [WWD]

But if Balmain's not in your price range, perhaps you should be thinking about investing in children's video games. These days, you can learn how to dress up your baby in couture or gossip your way on to the ‘Pretty Committee'. Er, OK... [Jezebel]

Meanwhile, the procreation of beautiful people continues as another supermodel falls pregnant. Karolina Kurkova has revealed she's six months pregnant, joining fellow Victoria's Secret models Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima. Looking forward to seeing that next generation... [Modelinia]

And finally, Lindsay Lohan could be getting her life back together with reports that she's setting up her own production company on the back of her self-tanning line Sevin Nyne and leggings collection 6126. Hmmm. [WWD]
