Alicia Kuczman, Scott Schuman, Fashion Rio, SPFW, And Beyoncé

  • 16-year-old newcomer Alicia Kuczman from Way Model Management is the girl with the most bookings in Rio, walking 26 out of the 27 shows this season. She is already confirmed for 15 more shows in São Paulo.
  • Colcci has enlisted Alessandra Ambrósio, Izabel Goulart, and actor Cauã Reymond, as replacements to Gisele for its fall show in São Paulo.
  • Rumor has it that Scott Schuman shot a story for GQ at the pool of the Fasano in Rio with Dan Caten, Rupert Everett, Neil Barrett, and Alice Dellal topless. He has already posted some pictures he took in the city this past weekend at The Sartorialist.
  • Garance Doré takes on Rio (again).
  • Model Carolina Pantoliano is back. She walked exclusively for Redley in Rio yesterday, and will be doing SPFW as well.
  • View Jeremy Kost's polas backstage at the shows here and here.
  • Brazilian label Neon now has a blog. Photographer Terry Richardson has a tumblr account.

It's Fashion Week In London And...

Daiane Conterato opened and closed the Christopher Kane show, which was put together in a few days after the designer had his studio robbed. If someone in fashion is destined to become the next Ghesquiere, that someone is certainly Mr. Kane.

Daiane Conterato and her fellow crooked-nose Brazilian Carol Pantoliano were also favored by Jonathan Saunders and Armand Basi.

After browsing through all the New York collections last week, one can't help but to notice how much creative juice is flowing in London this season. Marios Schwab's prints, dresses and bodices reminded me a lot of Helmut Lang, and I am going to keep an eye on him from now on.

Louise Goldin mentioned that she learned about summer knits by freelancing in Brazil, which is why her work reminds me of some old collections by Brazilian knitwear label Patachou. The shapes were a little freaky for my taste, but the use of color was superb.

I am loving the crazy hair, liberty prints, and batgirl references at Luella. It is the kind of combination only she can make work; and the new bags will be flying off the shelves.

While Luella merely flirted with bad girls, Mr. Gareth Pugh took them over the edge. In his most commercial effort to date, there were enough fringed rhinestone witches to carry Stevie Nicks into the 22nd century. If you are heading to any chic bondage parties next spring, now you know what to wear.

These are some Gareth Pugh looks which may have worked if they had been modeled by Chad White.

If you would like to look back at New York Fashion Week, make sure to check out all the backstage picture galleries at V mag, which have produced images like the ones below.

And in case you have not yet read the New York Times' T: Men's Fashion Fall 2007 magazine, I urge you to do so. I love the Couture Club edit.

Alexis And Carolina For Osklen

Osklen always creates the most beautiful catalogs in the country, and this season is no different. The two shortest models on the runways, Alexis Vinas and Carol Pantoliano, make the perfect couple for the label's risk-free spring 2008 collection.

To view the complete catalog, visit Osklen.com. The brand recently opened a boutique on Wooster street, right in front of Chanel, so make sure to check it out (the sales force is very cute).
