My Favorite Animale Ad Campaign To Date


After years of making Raquel Zimmermann look like a cyborg, a glamazon, or a porcupine, the people at Brazilian label Animale finale got it right with a much softer ad campaign for spring/ summer 2011. Love the hair and make up and the lighting. It goes to show that you don't need to travel to an exotic location to create a powerful image.

Fyi, photographer is Henrique Gendre.

Missy Rayder For Vogue Brazil


Henrique Gendre's pictures of Missy Rayder in Rio are probably some of the chicest images Vogue Brazil has produced all year, so I am shocked and kind of annoyed that they were used for a style feature and not a full-on ten page editorial. View more scans of the feature after the jump.
