Mariah Carey and Donatella Versace landed in Rio yesterday for tomorrow's Oi Fashion Rocks. Diddy, Estelle, Ciara, and Grace Jones will also be performing at the event, and the shows will be styled by Katie Grand.
The list of models confirmed for the shows tomorrow includes Abbey Lee, Alessandra Ambrosio, Aline Weber, Ana Claudia Michels, Bruna Tenório, Cameron Russel, Camila Mingori, Carmen Kass, Caroline Ribeiro, Carol Trentini, Daiane Conterato, Debora Müller, Dree Hemingway, Drielly Oliveira, Emanuela de Paula, Gracie Carvalho, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Iris Strubegger, Isabeli Fontana, Izabel Goulart (who was on my flight back from New York), Jeisa Chiminazzo, Jessica Stam, Lovani Pinnow, Luana Teifke, Missy Rayder, Raica Oliveira, Rianne Ten Haken, and Viviane Orth. Brazilianizer #1 Naomi Campbell, who you'd think would be already tanning at the Fasano by now, will not be able to make it.
I will not be attending Fashion Rocks because (a) I was denied credentials through MIB (yes, that was supposed to sound bitter), (b) I don't want to ask the boys at KCD for any favors , and (c) I honestly have too much work ahead of me this weekend. I promise to post videos and pictures of the event on Monday though.
Update 1: Ciara and Grace Jones were spotted in Rio this afternoon.
Update 2: Diddy and Estelle are staying at the Fasano.
