Made in Brazil posted beautiful shots shot by Victoria’s Secret favorite Emanuela de Paula backstage at a Brazilian fashion show of her fellow Brazilian bombshells. As he says, “You gotta love a model for taking really beautiful pictures as opposed to just snapping them on a blackberry or an iPhone and posting them on twitter.” We say, AMEN!
View more of Emanuela’s pictures here.

We think this is Anna Dello Russo‘s blog because it is just too fabulous not to be.

If you STILL do not know who Malcolm Mclaren was (and you know who you are), go here to read about his importance to pop culture and fashion. Here’s Cathy Horyn’s tribute to him: call me crazy but doesn’t young Vivienne Westwood look like Lara Stone here?

We are big fans of Siki Im (look for our upcoming special shots from his F/W 10 show). The Nowness has an arresting video of his collection which was inspired by “American Psycho” (video from Wardenclyffe).

Bits and Bytes: New London

May 29th, 2009 |Posted by Betty


Dazed and Confused highlights their picks of the new crop of London boys in this video. Robbie Wadge (above pic), Daniel Hicks and former Model of the Weeks Isaac Carew and Gavin Jones all make an appearance. Just ignore the strange robotic voiceover.

—————————————————-

More tidbits from the September Issue. And it’s juicy. This is one fashion documentary we cannot wait for.

FYI, Mango replaces Penelope Cruz with Scarlett Johansson. At least in this case it’s a celebrity replacing a celebrity and not taking the few bookings left from the poor models!

Check out this half Japanese, half Italian male model from Brazil; we love how diverse and gorgeous the Brazilians are.

More sad recession news. Following on the heels of Christian Lacroix filing for bankruptcy is reports of Veronique Branquinho folding her  line.

Maybe this will stay the heavy hand of the fashion retouchers (see Gwyneth Paltrow’s different jawlines in the link).

If you haven’t seen it already, Forbes has their list of new top earning models!

Miuccia Prada, the reluctant fashionista, gives her first interview in 3 years.

Frances Grill, founder of Click Models and discoverer of Uma Thurman and Whitney Houston, talks about her years in the business.

There’s a new rock-n-roll kid in town and Production is into him.

Check out the models and stars on Burberry’s night. See Helena Christensen, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Molly Sims.

Gisele Bundchen‘s in Versace for F/W 09. By Mario Testino. Against a wall. Again.

The Ones2Watch has 2 especially gorgeous newcomers: Moldova’s Xenia (just signed with IMG) and Rami from Argentina.

Though Natalia Vodianova is a fantastic cover model for this month’s British Vogue, let us not forget the divine Lara Stone who has a lush spread inside the mag by Alasdair McLellan wearing the season’s most coveted swimsuits. 

———————————

If you have $25,000 to spare, buy the Elton John Aids Foundation Portfolio.. You’ll get work by Juergen Teller, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst to name just a few of the star artists.

Tatiana did not like the Met’s Model as Muse. Here’s her critique.

Lara Stone is “inside the Chanel fitting room” with Baptiste Giabiconi. Video produced by Mr Lagerfeld! Pics on WWD here.

Fashionista chats with J Crew’s Creative Director, Jenna Lyons who adores Behati Prinsloo!

Though Kate Moss is on the cover of Tar, Sans Artifice asserts, it’s NOT a fashion magazine. There are however, wonderfully disturbing images of Kate and Natasa Vojnovic, here.
