Aline Weber by Eduardo Rezende for Elle Brazil. Love the location in the Atacama desert, love the swimsuit, but not a fan of the hair or the retouching (it looks like someone did something wrong to her body, especially around the skirt part of suit).
Alessandra Ambrósio by Robert Astley Sparke for Glamour Brazil, wearing the exact same swimsuit by Lenny Niemeyer which is featured on the cover of Elle (Alessandra wore it much better in my opinion). I am going to forgive the Brazilian flag cliché because it is Independence month.
Ben Harper and Isabelli Fontana by Jacques Dequeker for Vogue Brazil. Fashion Rocks? What year is this? One of my least favorite issues of Vogue Brazil this year. Fyi, Isabelli added a second “L” to her name.
Dakota Fanning by Karl Lagerfeld for Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. Another one of Carine Roitfeld’s global cover stories, but probably the last picture of the entire editorial I would have handpicked for a Brazilian cover.
Amra Cerkezovic by Fe Pinheiro for L’Officiel Brazil. With so many good images in the editorial, I have no clue why that was chosen for a cover. It is neither cool nor edgy if that is what the magazine was trying to achieve here.

Posted in Alessandra Ambrósio
Things to consider when looking at this picture:
1. Alessandra Ambrósio signed as the face of a feminine hygiene line in Brazil.
2. Alessandra agreed to cohost the launch event with four Brazilian actresses and made them hold the product for the press picture while she gave you full on model, which makes me love her in spite of topic #1 above.
3. They all look like they have been styled by Tina Knowles in the early days of Destiny’s Child.
4. The footwear choices.
5. Not to sound hypocritical, I too would have worn a satin mini with lace appliqué and pointed shoulders and held a box of tampons for the same contract (or reasonably a lot less).

Best national fashion cover so far this year: Alessandra Ambrósio by Terry Richardson in their first collaboration ever for the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. Nice to see a great cover of Bazaar Brazil again after several missteps this year.

By far my favorite story from the second issue of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book.
