Fashion news round-up: 18/12/11

Your guide to the biggest fashion stories of the week
Meryl covers Vogue
This has to be my favourite story of the week: the inimitable actress Meryl Streep (shot by Annie Leibovitz above) is covering the January issue of American Vogue. Her hotly anticipated role in The Iron Lady is already generating a lot of awards buzz - and for good reason too! Just watch this teaser trailer of Streep at work:

Andrej Pejic models push-up bra

Andrej has been the name on everyone's lips again this week following the announcement that he is starring in an ad campaign for Dutch department store Hema - modelling a push-up bra. Apparently Pejic said he'd have a sex change to model for Victoria's Secret but it looks like he didn't have to go to such extreme lengths to bag this one. 

The androgynous model rocks plunging necklines in the ad shots, looking as beautiful as ever. The bras are covered up but certainly prove their claim of boosting two cup sizes!

The Elizabeth Taylor auction sets world record
For a woman who was once quoted as saying "Big girls need big diamonds", her last event on this earth was a rather fitting affair. Bidders turned up in their finest to buy Taylor's coveted collection. Her catalogue of jewels, originally estimated at $30 million, sold for $115,932 million - a portion of which went to The Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation. WOW.
