How does an angel get her wings? Spin class! Who knew? Last night, Victoria's Secret's Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson & Erin Heatherton made an appearance at SoulCycle in Tribeca to ride for charity. The Angels spun to benefit Pelotonia, an annual grassroots bike tour that raises funds for Ohio State University's Comprehensive Cancer Center, James Cancer Hospital, which is one of the nation's leading cancer research facilities. Lily Aldridge told Chic: "You could have told me to climb Mt. Everest and I would have done my darndest to raise money and awareness for this charity." Angel-lovers paid from $1,000 to $2,500 to spin with the ladies, with all proceeds going directly to Pelotonia. Since we were on the topic, Chic wondered…Have you ever had a bike stolen?

 

Alessandra: I don't think so, no.

Erin: Totally. We used to leave them out in the front yard. My mom would yell at us and say, You're supposed to put your bike in the garage! And we never did, so sometimes they were stolen. We got in huge trouble. It was like an episode of Modern Family.

Candice: I haven't, but my boyfriend told me that I'm not very good at locking my bike up.

Erin: I had a bike in New York once and I made sure I bought the grimiest bike ever, so no one would want to steal it, but I bought a nice basket for it.

Dolce and Gabbana's site Swide.com took to the streets and asked guests at their recent men's show in Milan about...The Dolce & Gabbana Hotel. That's random. We dig.

Least shocking news ever! Grazia is exclusively reporting they are hearing rumors from "excellent" sources that Kanye West is going to debut a womenswear collection at New York Fashion Week. (But who will sit front row at every show?!) He's reportedly hired Brit Louise Goldin to oversee design, and has been learning the ropes from St. Martin's professor Louise Wilson, with studios in East London and NYC. If anybody knows anything more about this, let us know! What will Kanye clothes look like?

Chic chatted bikes with the lovely Candice Swanepoel at the Pelotonia Ride for cancer last night at SoulCycle. She was, as always, an angel. 

 

We understand you're not a regular spinner. When was the last time you were on a bike?

I have a bicycle, so I ride around the East Village. It's really cute.

 

What kind?

It's an old fashioned bike with a little basket.

 

How often do you bike a week?

I haven't been in New York a lot in the last couple of months, but if I'm here, I like to ride to work. New York is beautiful in the summer.

 

You should ride your bike to Governor's Island.

I've been there once before for a concert. I love it. It's very peaceful.

Olivia Wilde is on the cover of the August issue of Marie Claire, which hits newsstands on July 19th, and she sounds off! The actress take a jive at the Kardashians (that's OK with us!) and talks about redefining scandal: "I'd like everyone to refocus everyone's attention away from the Kardashians and onto Doctors Without Borders or aid workers. Let's redefine scandal. Scandal is not who so-and-so is dating, scandal is the fact that 1.2 million people are still living in the tents in Haiti, and cholera is rampant because Napalese U.N. soldiers dumped sh*t from their Porta-Potties into the river. That's a fu*king scandal. If the average 15-year-old was hearing about that instead of so-and-so's plastic surgery or cheating in Hollywood, I'd feel better about our future." Got that, everybody?
