A Semana: YouTube On Trial, Santoro, iPhone, A Gay Soccer Player, And Attacks Against Gays

Earlier this year MTV presenter Daniela Cicarelli filed a lawsuit against YouTube in Brazil because a video of her having public sex at the beach in Spain was being broadcast non-stop on the site. Yesterday YouTube won the case, claiming that Cicarelli could not base her case on violation of privacy when she was having sex in a public beach to begin with. Now that the presenter lost the case, the sex video will be making its way back on the internet.

Rodrigo Santoro is back on a movie set. He started shooting Redbelt with director David Mamet this month. The movie is about jiu-jitsu.

Paris Hilton was finally released from Lynwood Detention Facility after serving three weeks.

Gisele undressed for Michael Thompson on the latest W.

The Black Eyed Peas' Will.I.Am is apparently in the country shooting a movie to go with his solo debut album Songs About Girls.

The NYT reports about the much anticipated iPhone.

According to Folha Online, a soccer player from a major São Paulo club is ready to come out on national TV. Globo networks has been negotiating an exclusive interview, but the player's manager is against it.

Fortaleza in Ceará recognized its first gay civil union (also referred to as stable union in Brazil) last week, giving pension and health care rights to a lesbian couple who has been together for 22 years.

While progress is being made on the legal front, attacks against gays by groups of skinheads are still on the rise in the Jardins neighborhood in São Paulo. In the past month alone, a French man was murdered during Gay Pride weekend, a 17-year-old girl was attacked and molested, and a 19-year-old boy was stabbed to death this past weekend at Amarelinho at Rua da Consolação, a prominent gay hangout. There is a protest against the attacks scheduled for this Thursday at Rua Augusta. For more on the Jardins attacks, check out Club Whirled.

Carlos Freire Takes You To Paradise (Part I)

While the men's spring shows are taking place in Milan, Brazilian model Carlinhos Freire is apparently living the life away from the runways in Bangkok. Check out some of his pictures directly from Ko Samed, three hours away from Bangkok, exclusively at Made In Brazil.

There are more pictures after the jump, and another batch coming tomorrow.

It's Fashion Week In Milan And...

After a technicolor presentation last spring, Miuccia is headed in a more subdued direction for spring 2008. I love her shirtdresses for men (especially the version with 3/4 sleeves). It is something only she could make work. There is also an emphasis on a new length on the shirts and sweaters, making them all look like tunics. As for the sandals with socks which were already present last spring, I am going to have to skip them.

While shirt hems grew longer at Prada, jackets hems and sleeves were cropped at Jil Sander.

Dolce & Gabbana are back on track with another cargo extravaganza, great flower prints, and a selection of tiny swimsuits which may slowly become a trend. Make sure to watch the runway video with Timbaland on the soundtrack.

I have to thank Thomas Maier for putting an end to the skinny trousers at Bottega Veneta. I absolutely love his new take on volume, and his use of off-whites, pink, and caramel. Additional thanks for all the short shorts.

Mr. McQueen must be happy (and in love). He sent out one of his most optimistic and brightest men's collections ever, with a nod to the 50's, California, and surf. The result could not have been better.

At Burberry, Christopher Bailey turned the gay volume up for spring. Acid colors, a parade of sequins, gold, shine, and transparencies ran through the collection. After browsing through so much gray, white, and beige, I am happy someone is not afraid to use color.

Talking about turning up the gay volume, who would have thought that Mr. Armani would propose an off-the-shoulder look for men?

I am in love with the t-shirts, jackets, and shorts from Missoni: young, fresh, and very Marni.

After showing up in São Paulo last week, Evandro Soldati maintains his status as male model of the moment in Milan as well.

Southern Brazilian Kees Hattem made his Milan debut a year ago at Calvin Klein, and managed to score bookings at Prada and Costume National this week. Keep an eye on him.

I have a feeling scuba and surf are going to become a trend. Buy something in neoprene asap.
