It looks like summer’s not quite over for some people! The ladies of Victoria’s Secret — Miranda Kerr (left), Chanel Iman, Adriana Lima (right) and Doutzen Kroes — are suiting up in some sexy swimwear for October’s ELLE magazine.

The issue, on newsstands Sept. 20, takes a few fashion cues from the 1980s and aims to capture the essence of the bombshell. “Any woman who has a positive attitude about herself and carries herself with class but doesn’t try too hard and say, ya know, ‘Hey, look at me, I’m a bombshell,’ is basically a bombshell,” Iman explains. “It’s just a woman with a positive, strong attitude who knows she has it going on.”

The models — who will hit the runway this fall in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — were shot on location in Los Angeles. Check out more hot shots at

Beautiful ladies. Some have better genetics than others. Good for them!

Oh.. good grief! We are ALL aware she’s got her pre-baby body back already. This is only like the 4th article I’ve seen with her in it with her in a bikini… LOL

She probably munched lettuce leaves and sprouts while pregnant.

tummy tuck! tummy tuck!

Not everyone has nannies, a chef, and a personal trainer. I had non of the above, and I lost the weight every time I was pregnant, within 2 weeks; so did my daughters. A person has to just decide to eat healthy (not just lettuce leaves and sprouts), and get off their butts, get the house in order, and do what you’re supposed to do to lose weight and get in shape. I had 3 children in short order, no help except my husband, and NO tummy tuck. What I didn’t do was sit around and act like I couldn’t make a bed because I had a new baby. I took excellent care of my children, gave them a great deal of time, but I took care of me, too, and made sure I was healthy and back in shape ASAP. And, Oh Yes, I also breastfed. There is no need to gain 60 lbs while you’re pregnant, either!

I just came back from the beach just now and I am wearing the exact same outfit – although I am fairer than Miranda; and I am even better than her, I just had twins!!!

Careful what you say about Orlando Bloom’s missus… I playfully said something about her when they got married and some FOOL of a ‘woman’ went postal on me. Then got her friends to send me some crazy emails on FB!!!

Adriana’s tooth shot is ridiculous…and tired.

Years ago I recall reading fellow model, Heidi Klum, acknowledge that if your body was a certain way prior to childbirth it had/has a better chance of returning that way post partum. I don’t know firsthand, but I have seen everyday friends as well as viewed pictures of other celebs/models and it seems at least partly accurate. What I don’t understand is why its such a big deals how quickly ANY women return to their original size after carrying for nine month and then delivering a lovely gift of a child. Such as with singer Pink for example. I mean she is still happily glowing in new motherhood and I’m sure she’ll return to her pre-baby size one day, if only the media would STOP chasing her with unflattering pictures to get there as they did with Kendra Wilkinson. Everyone and their body is different. Whether famous or not.

If I had a personal trainer, a chef and a stylist as well as a hair and makeup squad..I would look fabulous to. I wish “real” women size 8 and up got as much credit as these women.
