Softness Scale

Bruna Tenorio‘s one of a kind look is showcased perfectly in the pages of City Magazine: Christian MacDonald shoots the Brazilian beauty in a delicate style that highlights not only her beauty, but also the light and airy ensembles. Bruna always looks lovely but, the combination of the simple studio setting, light makeup and delicate clothes, makes for an exquisite story.

Bits and Bytes: The Young Americans, Farewell to Ms Sims

August 5th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

2 new young Americans on our radar. Mitch from DNA Models is only 13 years old. We can’t believe it either!

Charlotte from Photogenics is 16, half Indonesian, half English but from the LA area. Amazing lines!

From foster homes to the cover of Life Magazine, we salute the extraordinary and ground breaking journey of Naomi Sims, called the first black supermodel, who died this past week at the age of 61. Wise as well ( “There is nothing sadder than an old, broke model, and there are many models who have nothing at the end of their career,” Ms. Sims told The Times in 1969), she went on to create a successful line of wigs and cosmetics for black women under her name. Read the Times obituary and take a look at some pictures from her inspiring career.

—————————————————————————

See the Dior Homme campaign; it does, of course have a lot of gorgeous Brazilian men.

Also for our friends in Brazil, here’s House of Models’ interview with Bruna Tenorio (in Portugese).

For the making of Zara‘s Fall/Winter campaign with Toni Garrn shot by David Sims, click here.

How do you get into the world of fashion? Teen Vogue‘s new book explains it all. With contributions by the Kaiser: Karl Lagerfeld, Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Testino, Chanel Iman and Caroline Trentini, this is the book that we wished we had when we started out oh so long ago. Out on October 5th.

Vanity Fair‘s best dressed list is out. Who made the cut from the fashion industry? Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Georgina Chapman, Tory Burch, Candy Pratts-Price, Franca Sozzani, Natalia Vodianova, Bruce Weber, Peter Beard and Rachel Roy. Eclectic indeed.

Jenna (the no longer Anonymous ex-Model at Jezebel) has a great post on Anna Wintour‘s early days of editing at NY Magazine. Worth taking a sec to see Anna pre-“Never a hair out of place”, along with the most genuine smile we’ve ever seen on her. (As you click through the gallery, make sure you read Jenna’s comments next to the picture).

If Karl Lagerfeld likes you, you will ALWAYS work. Take a sneak peek at his shoot for Purple Fashion with Baptiste Giabiconi, wearing heels, natch.

In case you read Portugese.. here’s an interview with Isabeli Fontana! It looks like she loves Aerosmith and would like to walk for YSL.. Are we right, her Brazilian fans?
