Riccardo Tisci Sure Loves The Brazilians




Givenchy was the Paris show with the most Brazilian girls this season (and probably the show with most Brazilian girls in the entire season): Marcelia Freesz, Aline Weber, Izabel Goulart, Tayane Leão, Adriana Lima, newcomer Isabela Mello, and Lea T. Gotta love Riccardo for that.

The New Brazilian Girl Of The Season



It has been a while since a Brazilian girl with staying power has come along, but it looks like that may change. Newcomer Marcelia Freesz had a stellar season in São Paulo back in June, and was booked exclusively for Givenchy in Europe, skipping the Milan shows and making the second exit on Riccardo Tisci's runway last month in Paris. She is of the top ten newcomers of spring/ summer 2011 according to Models.com, and has a face that is destined to land a major beauty ad campaign. I am already looking forward to seeing her in the spring editorials.

Marcelia is represented by One Management in New York and Way in Brazil.

Count On Riccardo Tisci To Bring Out The Brazilians



In the land of bleach eyebrows: newcomer Marcélia Freesz, Izabel Goulart, Lea T, Tayane Leão, and Laís Ribeiro yesterday at the Givenchy spring 2011 show in Paris. Fyi, Marcélia skipped the shows in Milan to walk exclusively for Givenchy this season.

This Was Not The Season For Brazilian Girls In New York

Curves are already so last fall for New York designers, and I guess so are Brazilian girls. The shows last week were definitely not about bombshells or Victoria's Secret angels on the runway, with the exception of Alessandra Ambrósio's appearance at Marc Jacobs last Monday night.

If you are curious to know who some of the new Brazilian girls are, thank Rad Hourani for booking five of them for his spring 2011 show: Alicia Kuczman, Debora Müller, Marcélia Freesz (my favorite of the bunch), Luana Teifke, and Paula Lourenço.



As much as I love Alicia and Marcélia, the only new Brazilian girl right now I can see having a long international career is Lais Ribeiro. She walked for Donna Karan, Jason Wu, Marc by Marc Jacobs, DVF, Tommy Hilfiger, Oscar de la Renta, and more, and I am definitely looking forward to seeing her at the European shows.
