Signs with Ultimo
Sarah Harding has signed a £100,000 deal with bra firm Ultimo.
The stunning singer from Girls Aloud will be the face of the underwear giant's new advertising campaign.
She is following in the footsteps of beauties such as Helena Christensen and Penny Lancaster, who have also posed for the firm.
It will be the first time a member of the girl group has done solo promotional work.
"Sarah isn't afraid of showing off her body - she's got a great figure and she knows it," a source said.
The 24-year-old singer's ads will be used to target a younger audience than the firm usually attracts.
Traffic Crashes Agent
The Web site of lingerie designer Agent Provocateur crashed over the
weekend after the first of a series of erotic films featuring supermodel Kate Moss was put online.
The promotion drew so much traffic that the Web site crashed and shut
down temporarily. Information on how long the downtime lasted, however, has not been released, nor has the company disclosed the host of its site.
The film is the first in a four-part series directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mike Figgis that depicts Moss having dreams in her underwear. It was shot over a period of two days at a mansion in Portland Place in London, and will mark the first time Moss' voice will be heard on film. It is rumored that in the third installation, Moss is completely undressed.
Agent Provocateur plans on posting a new film every two months.
Austin Reed Rejects
Men's and ladies' wear chain Austin Reed has rejected a takeover
bid from financial vehicle Dawnay Day and has reportedly now been approached by Harold Tillman, boss of rival retailer Jaeger.
Dawnay announced in the beginning of September that Reed minority sharholders Guy Naggar and Peter Klimt wanted the company's board
to recommend a possible cash offer of 131 pence per share.
The board said it had reviewed the approach and concluded "…the level of the proposed cash offer significantly undervalues Austin
Reed and its prospects".

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
" The wife responded, "Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!
A New Suit to Wear to Work
Tailored clothing company Bagir is to use smart fabrics from
Eleksen Group in its iPod-compatible suit for men.
The suit, which is due to go on sale at the end of November, allows its wearer to control the iPod music player through touch-sensitive
The suit's lapel doubles as a 5-button electronic control panel with play, pause, skip and volume options.
"We selected Eleksen’s unique touch-sensitive fabric to create an accessible interface between our clientele and their iPods," said
Offer Gilboa, CEO of Bagir.
"ElekTex is the only product on the market that is not disruptive to the design of our suits."
Eleksen CEO Robin Shephard added: "This partnership is proof that wearable technology is moving from its roots in sportswear to the
boardroom and from the slopes to the street."
Bridget Jones Underwear
to Be Auctioned Off
The famously large underpants worn by film character Bridget
Jones are to be auctioned off to raise cash for some of London's most famous green spaces.
The large, white underwear was worn by Renee Zellweger in her role in "Bridget Jones's Diary" and prompted the comment, "Hello, mummy!" from Hugh Grant, who played her suitor, Daniel Cleaver.
The underwear, signed by Grant, will be auctioned off at a charity dinner for Britain's Royal Parks Foundation.
Organizers hope the dinner will raise $185,000 for the Royal Parks, which provided the setting for scenes in the second film in the series, "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason." One scene in the movie took place in a fountain at Kensington Gardens; another was shot at Regent's Park.
Minogues Lingerie Loses
Kylie Minogues’ lingerie range has been dropped by major stores in Australia .
Sales of 'Love Kylie' bras and knickers fell so low that up market shop “Myer” and boutique chain “Bras N’ Things” removed them from their shops.
Kylie launched the range designed by her two years ago.
When the singer was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, sales of the underwear rose. But as she recovered they decreased.
"It's a blow on top of news that her comeback concerts are far from sold out. It's like her own country is losing interest in her", a source said.
Kylie was treated for her breast cancer in France . During her recovery period next to her was her boyfriend, French actor Olivier Martinez.
