Fashion News Roundup: Adriana Lima Teaches Jimmy Fallon How to Model, Franca Sozzani is Still a Single Lady, and The Quaker Oats Guy Gets a Haircut

Jimmy Fallon Gets Modeling Tips from Adriana Lima: The cute-as-a-button Victoria's Secret stunner stopped by Late Night to promote the new VS swim catalogue and ended up giving Jimmy lessons in Portuguese, model faces, and the correct way to pronounce her name. For the record, it's Ah-dree-ah-na... and we kind of want her to be our BFF after this segment. {Styleite} Russell Simmons Launching Yoga Brand: The hip hop magnate, who has been practicing yoga for more than twenty years, is now developing a new lifestyle brand around the "noise relieving" practice. The all-yoga encompassing 'Tantris' brand will initially include mens and womenswear activewear, meditation beads, scented candles, and mats, later expanding to freestanding stores, studios, and restaurants. Though his plan may sound capitalistic, Russell insists he's doing it out of his passion for yoga, not because he's "that kind of business guy." Sounds like Mr. Simmons is smarter than the average yogi. {WWD} Franca Sozzani Didn't Marry an African Oil Tycoon, or Anyone: Dear Internet, can we please get a scarcasm symbol already? Vogue Italia reposted an African tabloid yesterday which claimed its EIC had wed Ugandan oil tycoon Charles Mbire, then said Sozzani couldn't be reached for comment. The Internet took it seriously. To which Franca responded (after several hours of intense, sleepless speculation) that “The marital status [she] prefer[s] is being single.” So... we'll file this as an early April Fools Day prank? {Vogue Italia}

The Old Quaker Oats Guy Gets Madeover: Larry the Quaker Oats guy (who knew he had a name? And doesn't he look more like a 'Lawrence'?) apparently went into the (photo)shop for a makeover-- and came out with nary a change. We can barely tell the difference betwixt the old and new Larry, but his freshly trimmed coif does look extra fluffy without the split ends. {WSJ}

Pump Up Your Footwear: While we won't say platforms are totally dead just yet, we're all about the return of the classic single-soled pump this season. A mid-heeled point pair can sass up any ensemble-- here are some gorgeous (and surprisingly comfy) picks that won't leave your pinky toe smooshing into the rest of the gang, hanging on for dear life. {Refinery29}

Audrina Patrige Takes It All Off (Sort Of): Speaking of makeovers, yet another cultural icon recently received quite a lovely one! Former reality show fixture Audrina Patrige was given a make-under by xoJane, which still included six products. But compared to the 30+ products Audrina typically uses to get ready for an event, that's pretty impressive. Also, she eats Donettes for breakfast, and she's obsessed with bronzer... Why, I never! {xoJane}

Miranda Kerr on Finding Your Best Swim Style: The Aussie Angel and, by default, swimwear connoisseur, gives us the low-down on what'll keep you looking hot on the beach this summer. Bright colored bikinis are in, as are dainty accessories that won't leave unsightly tan lines. Spoiler alert: Victoria's Secret has everything you'll need. {FabSugar}

Ice-T's Wife Coco Answers Your Burning Man Questions: In Buzzfeed's new advice column, the fashion's classiest Coco (Coco Austin, not to be confused with Chanel or Rocha) is here to fix all your earth-shattering 'man' issues. And her advice is truly life-altering. On 'moving for your man': "If you truly want to, then do it." And regarding an uneven sharing of housework? "If you’re going to complain you might as well be single." Meanwhile, we're still wondering where she finds jeans to fit that badunk. {BuzzFeed}

Sergio Rossi's Beijng Concept Store Explores Footwear Fetishes: Luxury footwear brand Sergio Rossi opened its gorgeously designed Chinese flagship with a champagne and cocktail reception last night in Beijing. The concept store's dramatic layout is an homage to both "fetish and seduction," featuring spots for men to "watch and wait" and lighting that lends to a "privately voyeuristic atmosphere." Sounds like there might be a bit more going on here than just shoe shopping... {Fashionista Inbox}
