Mariah Carey strips down to her bra and panties as she brandishes a champagne glass and pearls for sultry Terry Richardson shoot

Mariah Carey strips down to her bra and panties as she brandishes a champagne glass and pearls for sultry Terry Richardson shoot

She's not one to shy away from displaying her incredible figure both on and off the stage.
And Mariah Carey was certainly in a revealing mood as she posed for celebrity photographer Terry Richardson for a recent magazine cover shoot.
Stripping down to nothing but skimpy lingerie, the 45-year-old shows off her famous hourglass figure whilst clutching a few decadent items.

she strikes a coy look on the Wonderland Magazine cover. 
With a coat draped over her shoulders, Mariah clutches a slightly filled champagne glass in one hand as she brandishes pearls in the other.
With her light locks teased into perfect flowing waves over her shoulders, the star smiles with her mouth partially open.
Displaying her fabulous figure, the Hero artist sports a black bra and matching lacy panties as her d├ęcolletage is put on full display.
The star's tummy looks exceptionally flat considering she is mother to twins Roc and Roe, aged three.
Speaking to Wonderland she revealed how her children have served as inspiration for her upcoming album: 'There's a song on the record called Supernatural that I haven't talked to the media about before - it features Roc and Roe. Especially Monroe - that's her song. 
'She opens the song, actually. It was something along the lines of "Goo goo goooo." For a two and a half year old, she was a steady vibrato.' 
Mariah's new album has been four years in the making, and even predates motherhood for her... but her 14th record is finally ready to be dropped.
She recently told Billboard: 'I have to be the one that announces this, especially the title,' Carey says, noting that the album takes its name from a 'personal possession of mine that's part of an entity that I've had almost all my life.'

And though she doesn't mention Mrs Carter, the strategy has obvious similarities to Beyonce's surprise drop of her self-titled album (and videos for all tracks) on iTunes last December.
Carey's last album, 2009's Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel sold just 549,000 copies and produced just one top ten hit, Obsessed.
A hit single with Miguel last summer, #Beautiful, buoyed the diva as it hit No. 15 in the charts and selling over 1.2M downloads.

'Sexpo' Is Instagram's Questionable New Workout Trend






A new form of fitspiration is popping up on social media and, like most social media trends, it is sexy, naked, and potentially problematic.
The hashtag #FitSex is ostensibly motivating Instagrammers to hit the gym to improve their sex lives or use sex as a workout, with cheeky text encouragements typical of the fitspo genre overlaid on images of people doing it: Naked bodies pressed against a shower door; a buff couple hooking up in bed; sex in the middle of dimly lit hallway, with a woman pressed against the wall by a muscular guy.
Some of the #FitSex images seem to celebrate sexual experimentation. Others feel more like body-shaming, implying that sex is best enjoyed by a woman with a certain type of figure. This is where the trend goes sour, especially considering the racy images of ripped women are pretty obviously being aimed at women themselves. Women with sexualized (and thin) bodies have always been a staple of the fitspo genre, so, in some ways, the evolution into "sexpo" feels unavoidable, if disturbing.
So far, though, the trend is small: The hashtag turns up only 147 posts on Instagram. (Searches on Tumblr and Pinterest turn up even fewer results.) But the "likes" are in the thousands.Follow Elisa on Twitter.

PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: A very blonde Sofia Vergara poses naked for sultry bikini shoot aged 26

PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: A very blonde Sofia Vergara poses for sultry bikini shoot at the tender age of 26 

We know her as the stunningly refined brunette beauty at the heart of hit series, Modern Family. 
But everybody's got to start somewhere, and it turns out that Sofia Vergara was already turning heads in her twenties... even though her own was a decidedly different hue.
Mail Online has exclusively obtained shots of the Colombian beauty, now 41, in a 1998 bikini shoot which took place in Miami just after she moved to the United States.

Back then, Sofia was just 26... and already comfortable in her amazing skin. 
Bronzed and blonde, the beauty sports some tell-tale'90s  pearlescent pink lipstick and brown liner... but everything else about Ms Vergara is recognisably timeless. 
Back in '98, Sofia was already mom to the then six-year-old Manolo, conceived with her childhood sweetheart, Joe Gonzalez.

The pair married when she was just 18 but divorced in 1993, when Manolo was just one.
After becoming a single mother, Sofia studied pre-denistry in her native Columbia for three years but moved to Miami when she was offered modelling work. 
Sofia also wanted to get herself and Manolo away from the continuing unrest in Columbia after her old brother was murdered during an attempt to kidnap him.

The beauty brought her mother and sister to the United States with her, too. 
The shoot dates from the same year as her brother's death and was likely one of her first assignments on US soil. 
Little did the multi-award winning actress know what the move would offer in the long run.
