Nuclear Wintour

I can't wait to watch this movie (yes, I am ashamed to say that I have read the book as well). I have a feeling Meryl Streep won't be featured on the cover of Vogue to promote it, but you know she is the only actress who could have pulled off playing Anna Wintour.

Ai, ai, ai...

Vanessa da Mata is really a force of nature. In spite of coming from a very small town in Mato Grosso and not playing a single instrument, the 26-year-old Brazilian singer manages to have over 250 songs written in her notebook. Even before releasing her first album, Vanessa had already composed for the likes of Maria Bethânia and Daniela Mercury, which is no easy task.

When I was in Brazil earlier this month, it was impossible to turn on the radio and not hear Vanessa's song "Ai, ai, ai...," which is part of the soundtrack to the primetime soap Belíssima. For the past few weeks, the track hasn't stopped playing on my iPod, and I decided to share it.

You can stream Vanessa's album "Essa Boneca Tem Manual" on her official website, or click here to download "Ai, ai, ai... (Remix)" for a limited time.

When a Brazilian goes French

After a solid fall season with bookings for Bottega Veneta and DVF, model Emanuela de Paula finally gets the much-deserved spotlight on the cover of the latest issue of French magazine. In Brazil, she can be seen on billboards all over São Paulo for the Alexandre Herchcovitch fall campaign. Click to enlarge.

Driving the girls crazy

I am having a pedophile moment this morning, but keep in mind that actor Thiago Martins is almost legal in Brazil. The 17-year-old hottie who stars in the soap Belíssima was caught changing his t-shirt at store in Rio, and Babado has more pictures. Click to enlarge.

Way Too Hot

With art direction by none other than Madonna's favorite, Giovanni Bianco, this week's issue of Brazilian magazine Quem Acontece features a 26-page steamy editorial with hottie Reynaldo Gianecchini and actress Cláudia Raia, shot by Gui Paganini. Click here for a behind the scenes look at the shoot.

What is sexy?

These girls sure are: Adriana, Alessandra, and Izabel have a Victoria's Secret moment, and immediately make me proud of my Brazilian genes. More pictures at Hollywood Tuna.
