What did I say about Bruna Tenório? The 17-year-old booked nothing less than 26 shows out of 38 this past week in São Paulo, opening 4 of them.
Caroline Trentini was absent for the last two days, but still managed to open 9 shows. Viviane Orth and Solange Wilvert were also a must-book this season. Watch out for Monique Olsen, Lais Navarro, and Emanuela de Paula.
Russian model Eugenia Volodina could not fix her rep as Brazilian hater in time for the shows, and attracted less attention than fellow Russian Eugenia Kuzmina. Several designers refused to book her thanks to her Vanity Fair interview bashing Brazilian models two years ago.
While models were busy working in São Paulo, Gisele was having some fun with Tom Brady in New York.
Isabela Capeto maintained the buzz around her name with a small presentation for press yesterday in the morning, almost in a couture sort of way. I did not get to see it live, but the video did the trick.
If Prada's fall collection and Marc Jacob's spring line had a baby, it would have looked like Huis Clos for fall 2007. Remaining true to her aesthetic and sophisticated approach to fabric and color, Clô Orozco did not send out a single bad look on the runway yesterday. It was the most cohesive collection shown in the city, and I wish it had been presented on a regular runway.
Designer Marcelo Sommer made a triumphant return to the event with his new label Do Estilista. As much as there was (way) too much going on in every look to cater to my needs, it was nice to see him back on track and to hear Dolly Parton on the soundtrack. It will be interesting to see how his parade of blanket trench coats will translate once they hit the stores.
Quick question: Brazilian model Raphael Aidar or Justin Timberlake?
