Dolce & Gabbana Bring Out The Brazilian Bombshells Again



So far this hasn't been a great season for new Brazilian girls, but you can always count on Dolce & Gabbana for a show filled with familiar Brazilian faces: Isabeli Fontana, Alessandra Ambrósio, Izabel Goulart, Martha Streck, and Debora Müller. I am wondering if Laís Ribeiro is skipping the shows or is exclusive to a label showing in Paria since she has been m.i.a. for the past week.

Watch the Dolce & Gabbana fall/ winter 2011 women's show at Swide.

The Beautiful People


Next fall is going to be all about polka dots, a matching hat, and a little lace: Bruna Tenório, Deborah Muller, and Daiane Conterato at the Marc Jacobs show yesterday in New York. View pictures of the complete collection at, and watch a video of the show after the jump.

Way Model Management Fall/ Winter 2011 Showcards



My favorite showcards this season in Brazil come from Way Model Management. The agency invited prodigy graphic designer Romeu Silveira, responsible for U Mag and From Brazil With Love, to do the artwork on the cards for the fall shows in Brazil in January and the result is pretty stunning. View more showcards after the jump.

PS- I am beyond excited Lea T. is featured in the package. I am very curious as to what labels will be booking her, and I hope she gets to walk at Animale with Raquel. Having a chance to Interview the two of them together backstage almost makse me want to wish I would cover the shows in Brazil this season.

The Brazilian Girls Of The Season In Milan

So far spring 2011 hasn't been the best season for Brazilians, but girls like Daiane, Debora, and Martha have been a constant presence on the runways, with solid bookings in New York and this past week in Milan.

Debora Müller at Emporio Armani, Jil Sander, and Marni.


Martha Streck at Gucci, Jil Sander, and Giorgio Armani.

ffw Mag!, Debora Müller, Prada, Topshop, And The Brazil Foundation Gala


  • The new issue of ffw Mag! featuring all the Brazilian spring 2011 collections is already on newsstands, with newcomer Nathalia Oliveira on the cover. I am going to pick up a copy over the weekend and scan some of my favorite pictures to post next week.
  • Debora Müller was the Brazilian girl with most bookings in London this season, walking eleven shows and scoring three exits at Burberry.
  • In case you missed the live broadcast yesterday, here is a video of the genius Prada spring 2011 show.
  • Flipped through the latest 10 Men featuring Tony Ward this week, and it is brilliantly edited. For pictures of the story photographed by Marcelo Krasilcic for the issue, visit his blog.
  • Watch the new Love, Chloé commercial with Raquel.
  • Rio's Buati party is taking over Lionsclub in São Paulo tonight.
  • The Week São Paulo is celebrating its sixth year in business this weekend with three huge parties.
  • It is finally confirmed: Topshop will be opening two stores in São Paulo in 2011. Topshop will open in the first semester, and Topshop/ Topman will open in the second semester. I wonder if the prices will be the same in Reais or if the merchandise will be ridiculously expensive as everything else is in Brazil.
  • Gisele looked stunning in a backless Calvin Klein number last night at The Brazil Foundation's 8th Annual Gala Benefit. Also at the event at the Met were Pedro Andrade, Lorenzo Martone, Anne Hathaway, Cecilia Dean, Vik Muniz, and Fernanda Motta. The after party was at the Boom Boom Room. Did any of you go and took pictures?
