Brooke Shields was an ageless femme fatale as she posed up a storm for some evocative Instagram snapshots.

The 55-year-old actress was film noir chic in the black and white pictures, which showed her rolling around the garden in a dark swimsuit.

Her leggy snapshots were taken by modeling sensation Helena Christensen who shot to fame as a Victoria’s Secret Angel in the 1990s.

Brooke flaunted her assets in her high-cut one-piece, letting her straps slide evocatively off her shoulders.

‘A great friend and a dream collaborator,’ she wrote, adding: ‘thank you for believing in my vision and helping bring it to life,’ and tagging Helena.

After becoming a star as a model Helena also broke into photography and has previously snapped Brooke for Reserved magazine.

The dynamic duo have been friends for some time apparently as they were seen chatting amiably in New York a couple of years ago.

Brooke, who used to be Mrs. Andre Agassi, has been married since 2001 to screenwriter Chris Henchy who often works with Will Ferrell.

The Suddenly Susan star and her husband are the proud parents of two daughters, 17-year-old Rowan and 14-year-old Grier.

Meanwhile Helena has gone through three divorces and shares her 20-year-old son Mingus with her second ex-husband Norman Reedus. 

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last year, Brooke told Andy Cohen that she is ‘afraid of’ having plastic surgery.

‘But I also like wanna do everything I can to just look my best and feel my best, so I recently discovered – I think it’s like a trick, it’s like a resource,’ she said.

Brooke has turned to a body treatment called warm-sculpting, aka SculpSure, a non-invasive procedure in which lasers are used to burn away fat cells.

Last April she was announced as a spokeswoman for SculpSure, which has been cleared by the Food And Drug Administration.

anthony joshua reveals he demands his dates have no expensive starters

He is one of the wealthiest sportsmen on earth. 

Yet boxing legend Anthony Joshua has not let his millions haze his attitude to dating as he candidly joked that he demands his dates stay low cost, as he took part in a challenge with Peperami Chicken Bites to find love at first bite.

The sportsman, who is worth £47million, tickled his date when he said: ‘No starters – straight to the mains. Expensive! I look at what’s the cheapest on the menu!’

Uh oh! Boxing legend Anthony Joshua has not let his millions haze his attitude to dating as he candidly joked that he demands his dates stay low cost, as he took part in a challenge with Peperami Chicken Bites to find love at first bite

Anthony was discussing his love of food and how it influences his dating life as he took part in the new challenge alongside three stunning ladies. 

The trio had to cook for Anthony before he blind taste tested which he preferred while the lucky lady nabbed a date with the iconic boxer. 

As he sat down to his date, Anthony began chatting about what he looks for in love as he said: ‘Is food the way to my heart? It plays a part. What do I look for in love? The energy, the connection, the aura with someone.’ 

While he was certainly romanticising his aims for love, a dinner date seems wholly less romantic due to his tight purse strings.

Don’t get too excited! The sportsman, who is worth £47million, tickled his date when he said: ‘No starters – straight to the mains. Expensive! I look at what’s the cheapest on the menu!’

This is not such a problem as he admitted he does not have the most dazzling dating life, saying: ‘“The honest answer is I don’t really date. My last date was in the boxing gym…with boxing, I am married to boxing really…

‘I don’t really do dates, I am not really interested in it. I am much more in to just being in relaxed situations and developing friendships…

‘I don’t think my schedule plays any part in really I just don’t put pressure on situations. In terms of kids I guess it is down to the individual circumstances.’

Working on it: While he was certainly romanticising his aims for love, a dinner date seems wholly less romantic due to his tight purse strings

On his dream date, Anthony went on: ‘Like I said I am not a big fan of the date situation but if I was on a date I would find a good local restaurant…

‘For me no food is off limits, I would just like who I am with to enjoy themselves and eat exactly what they want to. I am definitely not a food snob.’  

Anthony’s romantic life is minimally publicised, however he has been linked to a string of stars including Maya Jama and Rita Ora.

She showcased her latest collection for her eponymous brand with her family being her only guests at a socially-distanced catwalk on Monday. 

And Victoria Beckham continued to tease new pieces as she tried on a selection of slinky silk dresses at her collection fitting on Wednesday.

The fashion designer, 46, took to Instagram to ask fans whether she should wear the yellow or purple version of the maxi dress, after heading to lunch in a khaki ensemble.

Victoria put on a daring display as she shared a selfie in the yellow version of the plunging lace dress, which came complete with a pleated skirt. 

After also modelling the dress in purple, Posh said the design was ‘one of my favourites’, as she asked her fans: ‘Which colour do we like?’ 

However the star decided to switch things up as she left the Wolsley Restaurant in a ruched khaki top, yellow polo neck and a low-slung pleated midi skirt.

Victoria teased a hint of her toned legs as she strutted out of the restaurant, due to a side slit in the skirt. 

She accessorised her statement look with her signature oversized shades, a Hermes handbag and blue suede stilettos. 

The mother-of-four tied her brunette locks back in a low ponytail and finished off her stylish ensemble with a polished palette of make-up.

Victoria, like most designers, opted for a digital presentation to showcase her latest collection during London Fashion Week as the coronavirus pandemic uproots fashion weeks around the globe. 

The Spice Girl turned fashion designer shared Instagram snaps of husband David, 45, alongside sons Romeo, 18, Cruz, 15, and daughter Harper, nine, in face masks ahead of Monday afternoon’s presentation. 

Victoria captioned her snaps: ‘My favourite (and only) guests this season! love you all so much @davidbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven xx we missed you @brooklynbeckham @nicolannepeltz.’

The designer showed off her latest collection with the help of four models, while there was just a handful of fashion editors in attendance for a preview at Victoria Miro art gallery in East London on Sunday.

Guests at Sunday’s preview all wore monogrammed face masks that were provided at the entrance of the gallery and social distancing was enforced. 

The presentation was streamed on Victoria’s website on Monday afternoon, meaning one of LFW’s most anticipated shows was accessible to all.

Victoria also shared photos of the beautiful bouquets of flowers sent by her husband David and their sons as well as eldest son Brooklyn’s fiancée Nicola Peltz on Instagram.

Speaking to Grazia,Victoria explained that she spent a lot of time over lockdown wondering how she was going to present the collection. 

She at first thought she would show the collection with a small presentation to just editors, before making a last minute decision to go digital and open up the LFW event to everyone. 

‘There is obviously more pressure on digital content — the video that we’re going to be shooting today, the pictures that we take. … I think that the challenge this season has been less about the clothes and more about everything else. I always welcome change and challenge,’ Victoria said.
