15 Brazilian Girls Walked The FNO Show, But Where Was Raquel?






From top to bottom, left to right: Tayane Leão, Izabel Goulart, Fabiana Semprebom, Martha Streck, Bruna Tenório, Jeisa Chiminazzo, Thana Kuhnen, Laís Ribeiro, Daiane Conterato, Aline Weber, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrósio, Flavia de Oliveira, Caroline Trentini, and Gisele.

I hadn't really commented on the big Fashion's Night Out show at Lincoln Center because I was shooting on location all day yesterday. I finally got to read everything about it and watch some clips this morning, and it looked like quite an undertaking. So thrilled to see many Brazilian girls on the runway, and while I did not really miss Isabeli, I really wish Raquel Zimmermann had also been part of it. Already cannot wait to watch the FNO documentary.

Evandro And Jeísa For Triton


It sort of looks just like the previous Triton campaign with Evandro, also photographed by Tony Kelly.

Insane Casting



The casting for the Giles Deacon show yesterday in Paris seriously put Prada's venture into Victoria's Secret territory to shame. Absolutely insane, all the major girls, and six Brazilians: Alessandra Ambrósio, Ana Beatriz Barros, Jeisa Chiminazzo, Caroline Trentini (in her first appearance yet this season), Aline Weber, and Izabel Goulart.

SPFW: Animale Breaks The Bank

With Raquel, Jeisa, Michelle Alves, and Izabel Goulart on the runway, who cares about what the clothes looked like?



And the super star cast at Animale also included Viviane Orth, Marcelle Bittar, Daiane Conterato, Juliana Imai, Camila Finn, and Bruna Tenorio. More pictures of the show after the jump.

Fashion Rio: Surprise Models, Knock-Offs, Alessandra Ambrosio, and More Pride

Jeísa Chiminazzo, Fabiana Semprebom, and Marcelle Bittar surprised everyone yesterday in the evening at the Animale show. The all-star cast of the fiery show also counted with the likes of Izabel Goulart and Flavia de Oliveira. Nothing like great models to make a collection work on the runway. Raquel Zimmermann once again was a no-show.

Actor Dado Dolabella and model Paulo Zulu got the crowd going yesterday night at the Sandpiper show.

The biggest attraction of Thursday night was the Blue Man swimwear extravaganza at the Copacabana Palace, followed by a party right after. The ballroom at the hotel is simply extraordinary.

The most talked about article this week in Rio is the one published on Piaui magazine about Brazilian designer knocking off pieces from the runways in Milan and Paris. As much controversy as it has generated, every word in the article is true, and it is extremely well written. If you can get a copy of the magazine, I highly recommend it.

Tomorrow in New York, model Alessandra Ambrosio will be meeting fans and signing photos from 2 to 4pm at the Armani Exchange store in SoHo. Armani Exchange will be donating 10% of the day's sales to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society. That alone is a good reason for Alessandra to be absent from the runways in Rio this week.

Talking about Alessandra, she may be joined by Miss Brazil Natália Guimarães at the next Victoria's Secret show. Rumor has it that the runner up to the Miss Universe title was approached by Victoria's Secret right after the pageant. She is supposed to be meeting with the company in the next two weeks.

The Gay Pride festivies took over São Paulo. DJ Victor Calderone got the party started on Wednesday night at The Week.
