I find the styling to be a little unimaginative and bland, but I am thrilled that there are stories with Gracie Carvalho and Emanuela de Paula in the current issue of Vogue Brazil. Such a great change from the usual suspects Isabeli Fontanta, Ana Claudia, and Luana Teifke. View more scans of the two stories after the jump.
Lovani Pinnow just so happens to be in the two Brazilian ad campaigns I actually like this season: Talie NK shot by Jacques Dequeker, and Osklen by Gui Paganini. Coincidentally, the two campaigns share not only the same model, but also the same surf theme, interpreted in two completely different ways.
I am not really big on the cover shot by Jacques Dequeker, but the story with Gisele lensed by Gui Paganini for the October issue of Vogue Brazil is by far the best editorial the magazine has featured in the past couple of years. The styling is interesting, the hair looks fresh, and it feels effortless. It is everything the magazine should turn into now that it is moving next month to its new publisher formed by a joint venture between Editora Globo and Condé Nast. Thank God for La Bündchen and her 15 years of experience.
PS- There is a second editorial with Gisele in the issue photographed by Jacques Dequeker which I will not be posting because it is incredibly mediocre compared to the pictures above.
What is up with all those 3-D editorials and ad campaigns we are seeing lately? Have fashion magazines developed some secret partnership with makers of 3-D glasses? The whole 3-D thing looks cool on Avatar, but I am still not sure it works in fashion editorials unless it is done by someone like Nick Knight.
