The New York Times does Brazilian Day in New York. The festival took place this past weekend on 46th street or Little Brazil, and drew about 1 million people.

While some people were partying Brazilian style on the streets of New York, others were in the Nevada desert for the annual Burning Man festival.

"Everything is beautiful at the gym, everyone looks amazing. You just think it's like one big healthy circus going on out there: the bodies are great, people are jolly, and, even when they're complaining about how strenuous it is, there's, like, a kind of very good, positive, we're all doing something good for ourselves... And it's two and a half hours that I'm not smoking." Fashionista has excerpts from the Marc Jacobs interview in the Style Issue of the New Yorker, which I do recommend you read.

The iPhone 3G is finally confirmed to hit Brazilian stores come September. Claro will be the initial service provider, and is already taking R$100 security deposits from its customers who want to purchase the phone. Given the number of illegal iPhones I see in Brazil, most people will likely start making their service legal next month. Price for the iPhone 3G in the country has not been released yet.

A Semana: Marlon Teixeira, Madonna, Kylie, Lifeguards And Steroids

A Semana: David Archuleta, Models, Rio Summer, Santoro, And Project Runway

Ricky Martin became the father of twin boys (via surrogate mother of course).

About this week's Project Runway episode, all I am going to say is that it was about time that a certain designer got cut from the show. He had been claiming all along to have impeccable taste level, but forgot that the definition of taste changes with the surroundings you are in. For the latina drag on this week's episode, taste would have meant sequins galore, a cascade of rhinestoned ruffles, and giant roses applied on a red lace corset.

Now am I the only one who thinks that the new layout of Style.com looks more like a blog template?

A Semana: Rosa Chá, Madonna, JD, Manhunt, And Brazilian Day
