adam levine behati prinsloo wedding

Sure, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West might have all the wedding spotlight at the moment, but there’s another HAWT couple with upcoming nuptials too!

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are also in the process of finalizing plans for their big day, and similarly to Kimye they will have not one, but TWO separate weddings on TWO different continents! (Well, technically Kimye had three, but who's counting.)

According to sources, the first ceremony will take place beachside in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. And apparently fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge will attend — sounds like one GORGEOUS wedding already!!

Albino Model Thando Hopa Fights Discrimination Through Her Journey Inside The Industry

Filed under: Fashion SmashionInspirationModels

As an albino model, Thando Hopa doesn't have it easy.

The South African beauty constantly has to fight negative perceptions of her looks in the already picky modeling industry, and she has to deal with terrible treatment and loads of prejudice in everyday life as well.

Man Swallows $2.3 Million Worth Of Diamonds!

WTF?!?

A 25-year-old Lebanese man was arrested earlier this week at the O.R. Tambo International Airport in South Africa after attempting to smuggle $2.3 million worth of diamonds — in his stomach!

The conniving schemer was on his way to Dubai, but his trip was quickly halted as soon as he went through the security checkpoint's scanning system, where he was then taken into custody and forced to take several laxatives to rid himself of the 220 diamonds he swallowed.

We bet his poop shined bright like a diamond. Ha!

Dolce & Gabbana Sue Dolce & Banana Gift Shop

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

Bananas!

Italian powerhouses Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana are going ape shiz over a South African gift shop's name, Dolce & Banana.

Although we think the name is pretty darn clever, Dolce & Gabbana's holding company Gado didn't, and have hit the small business owner Mijou Beller with a lawsuit citing monkey business "objectionable conduct" causing "diluting" of the iconic brand.

Fearing further litigation, the owner has since changed the name of the shop to … & Banana.

Absolutely ridic!

What do you think about the lawsuit?!!!
