Eve of the Month: Keira Knightley

Congratulations to Keira Knightley, our Eve of the Month!

We love Keira's fiesty, confident demeanor and acceptance of her body! When studio heads wanted to alter her breast size, Keira refused to be digitally enhanced in promotional photos. As a result, she is someone who we can admire!

Way to go, Keira!

Lingerista Lifestyle: An Apple a Day...

...keeps the doctor away!

It's apple season!

All the delicious apples ripening for harvest is one more reason to Celebrate Your Inner Eve by eating healthy and feeling guilt free in your lingerie.

(Rive Gauche Bra by Chantelle, image above)

With the abundance of apples, everyone, including us at Eve's Apples, is finding every conceivable way to prepare, serve and eat apples. Whether you like Red Delicious, Gala, Duchess, Empress, Fuji or countless others, Southern Living has 21 succulent and healthy Apple Recipes for you. Thanks to Good Health telling us about these recipes on twitter!

Some Eve favorites are Double Apple Pie with Cornmeal Crust and Quick Apple Dumplings for healthier options. However, if you want to indulge a little in your sinful side, take a look at Easy Cornbread Sausage Stuffed Apples and Chunky Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. If only there was a way to make cream cheese frosting taste so incredibly divine without all the cream cheese....

Oh well, didn't the doctor say something about moderation too?


From Southern Living, September 2001


1 1/2 cups sugar

2 cups water

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, divided

1/4 cup butter or margarine

2/3 cup sugar

2 (15-ounce) packages refrigerated pie crusts

8 medium Braeburn apples, peeled and cored*

3 tablespoons butter or margarine, cut up

Vanilla ice cream (optional)


Bring 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 cups water, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in 1/4 cup butter. Set syrup aside.

Combine 2/3 cup sugar, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.

Cut pie crusts in half, and roll into 8-inch circles. Place 1 apple in center of each circle. Sprinkle each evenly with sugar mixture; dot evenly with 3 tablespoons butter.

Fold dough over apples, pinching to seal. Place in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Drizzle with syrup.

Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

*Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apples may be substituted.

Enjoy, my dear, Lingeristas!

Behind the Scenes: Part 2 ~ Stella McCartney Lingerie Video

Last Friday, we launched our Eve's Apples "Behind the Scenes Series" to give our readers some insight into what it takes to have a successful lingerie shoot and runway show.

This week we bring you our second video, featuring Stella McCartney Lingerie (video below).

After our Eve's Apples photo shoot last weekend, I found it even more interesting to watch behind the scenes footage. It allows us to see all of the work and energy that goes into a shoot. We, the consumers, generally just see the finished product, not knowing the number of hours and people it takes to make a smooth transition from concept, to undeveloped film, to runway, to magazine, or to television!

Stay tuned, we'll be adding our own Eve's Apples Behind the Scenes video. Until the, enjoy the video featuring Stella McCartney lingerie.

Men Guide to Buying Lingerie Gifts

Many men would like to buy sexy lingerie for that special woman in their life, but unfortunately are not sure how to pick out the right lingerie for her. Before you head for the women's lingerie section at your neighborhood department store, or order from women's lingerie catalogs, it is important that you brush up on the ABCs of buying lingerie gifts first.
Though you may have seen pictures of women's lingerie in magazines and thought to yourself "wow this would look good on my girl!" the fact remains that the world of lingerie is divided into many sub-categories that you should familiarize yourself with.

First, we have the babydoll type of lingerie (sometimes also called baby-doll or baby doll.) The babydoll is a short type of nightgown that may start at the shoulder straps and terminate in a hem around the upper thigh area. Some babydoll negligees are sold with matching panties for a sleek look. The babydoll is usually used as nighttime wear, like regular nightgowns are.

Second, have you ever considered buying a corset for you female partner? The corset is a rigid type of lingerie due to the hard plastic or metal boning that is fused into the skeletal structure of the corset. This is why the corset can pull in some sagging parts of the female torso to prevent the woman from looking frumpy. If your girl has a whistle-bait figure, then you can still buy a corset to accentuate her hourglass figure if she feels comfortable enough wearing a corset.
Lastly, your girl might be daring enough to wear a thong which is also known as a G-string. Some women opt to wear G-string panties because it allows them to wear tight-fitting pants without revealing a panty line through the pants. The end effect is the illusion that they are not wearing any underwear under their pants, giving the pants a smooth sleek look.

Third, you could give your wife or girlfriend a camisole. A camisole might be designed either as another type of negligee or form of nightwear, or have a bra fused into the design so that the camisole can be used as an undergarment as well. It is a form-fitting type of lingerie but aims to keep the wearer relaxed anyway even when it is worn as an undergarment.

Fourth, you might opt to buy a chemise instead for that special girl in your life. You might find it funny, but in past centuries even men wore a chemise. Nowadays though, it is more accepted that women wear a chemise than for men to use one for themselves. Being loose and comfortable, women might opt to wear the chemise as an outer garment in warm weather or evening wear conditions. Many women use the chemise as an undergarment however. The male version of the chemise at present is the men's undershirt.

So which type of lingerie should you buy for your girl? That is strictly up to you, of course. You may need to get some clean underwear that your female partner does use when shopping for lingerie so that the staff can help you pick out the right lingerie in the right size. It would be nice as well if you could have the lingerie wrapped up nicely but some men prefer to buy a fancy type of shopping bag and place their purchase there.
Even if you’re on a budget, that’s no reason to skimp on quality. Buying your lingerie online can be a great way to save money, and you can even get it delivered to your door without having to endure the embarrassment of physically buying the goods yourself. Of course not everyone gets bothered by buying underwear, but if it’s something that you find uncomfortable, the internet can benefit you in this regard.

The Quotable Lingerista: Tyra Banks

“I am totally against plastic surgery. A lot of people think I have breast implants because I have the biggest boobs in the business. But I was a 34C when I was 17...They stay up when I wear a push-up bra. But if people could see me when I come home and take off my bra, how could they think these are fake?"

Keira Knightley: Keep Me As I Am

What do you do when your face is recognized worldwide and the studio heads want to enhance your body to make it more curvaceous? Do you let them digitally enhance you for publicity photos? Get plastic surgery?...

...Not if you're Keira Knightley!

When faced with this predicament, "Keira Knightley drew a collective 'you go, girls!'...after reportedly resisting having her bustline digitally enhanced in publicity shots for her new film 'The Duchess.' The Daily Mail in her native United Kingdom said that the movie studio wanted to pump up Knightley’s cleavage in the photos, à la posters for 'King Arthur,' in which her bosom was blown up to buxom proportions. 'Those things certainly weren’t mine!,' said Knightley.

This time, the 23-year-old actress 'insisted that her figure stay in its natural state,' an insider said. 'She is proud of her body and doesn’t want it altered.' 'The trend now is toward "natural figures," whether voluptuous or small-busted,' said Jacqui Stafford, executive style director for Shape magazine. 'It’s a movement toward accepting what you have and making the most of it.'...” For more on the article, click on Chicago Tribune / Keira Knightley.

Hats off to Keira for being comfortable and confident in her own body!

At Eve's Apples we'd recommend the Lucia Plunge Bra by The Little Bra Company so that Keira can have some added cleavage or if she wants to go with simply sexy without the padding, the the India Lace Bra by Eberjey is irresistible.

Keira's one woman that we admire for standing up for herself and "Celebrating Her Inner Eve."
