  • If you are in São Paulo this coming Friday, do not miss another edition of the Buati party at Lionsclub.
  • Rocinha, the largest favela in Rio, held its first Gay Pride Parade yesterday. 50,000 people attended the event, and there were no reports of fights or attacks during the event.
  • Dan Savage and Jim McGreevey on Joy Behar.
  • interviews Anna Dello Russo.
  • Francisco Lachowski for GQ Russia, and Lucas Mascarini by Giampolo Sgura for GQ Style Italy.

Guapo, Arthur Sales, Lea T, Designer Collaborations, And The Week


  • Love the cover of the blond ambition issue of Guapo.
  • Sexy outtakes of Arthur Sales by Dean Isidro.
  • Martha Streck on the cover of Oyster magazine.
  • Brazilian designers are launching less expensive lines in partnership with mass retailers more than ever this season. Former Rosa Chá designer and owner Amir Slama has launched his third capsule collection for C&A, Osklen's Oskar Metsavaht is unveiling his first collaboration with Brazilian retailer Riachuelo today, and rumor has it that Gisele is scheduled to launch her line for C&A again. She is confirmed to be the new face of the retailer in Brazil, replacing Isabeli Fontana, Ana Beatriz Barros, and Caroline Ribeiro.
  • Chanel will be opening its second store in São Paulo at Iguatemi Mall next month.
  • Lea T is now represent by Way Model Management in Brazil, but I doubt that any national label will have the balls to book her for an ad campaign.
  • If you are in São Paulo this weekend, don't miss the sixth anniversary of The Week's Babylon party on Saturday night. DJ Chris Cox will be spinning, and the party will have a Harajuku Lovers theme. On Sunday the club will be throwing another XL Pool Party at Clube Atlético Nacional with guest DJs Lydia Sanz and Tommer.
  • If you are gay, live in Brazil, and also annoyed at how your rights have been left behind in the presidential race, you should read this (in Portuguese).

Love, Tony Ward, Kelly Rowland, Lady Gaga, And More Ad Campaigns

  • Caroline Trentini and Izabel Goulart star in the Express fall 2010 ad campaign photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.
  • What to expect of the second installment of Fashion's Night Out in New York.
  • In case you haven't seen the eight new collectible covers of Love yet, here they are.
  • My favorite editorial this week is definitely Tony Ward's story for the fall issue of 10 Men.
  • Lady Gaga's new album will be "shocking".
  • Listen to Kelly Rowland's new track Forever And A Day. I am addicted to it.
  • Watch the making of the new Forum ad campaign with Marlon Teixeira and Natalia Vodianova.
  • As more summer national campaigns are being unveiled, I find it unbelievable that not a single major label has booked Laís Ribeiro for their ad campaigns. In my opinion, she would have been a much better choice than Chanel Iman at Rosa Chá, or Lisanne de Jong at Alcaçuz. There is not a single new Brazilian girl chicer and cooler than Laís right now.
