The Fashion Magazine Covers On
Newsstands In Brazil This Month

Aline Weber, Ana Beatriz Barros, Isabelli Fontana, Izabel Goulart, Renata Kuerten, Barbara Beluco, and Rhayene Polster by Jacques Dequeker for Vogue Brazil. It is not a bad cover per se but everything about it sounds fishy to me. First off, it reads “Class of 2014,” and I am deeply sorry but that is the class of 2000 in the picture. The correct class of 2014 would be Amanda Wellsh, Waleska Gorczevski, Mariana Santana, and Cris Herrmann, but of course no one bothered to hire a casting director to get this done correctly. It should just read “The Girls Of Mega” instead because it is certainly not a mere coincidence that every single girl on the cover and on the fold out are represented by Mega, and that they are all wearing Dior. Also, I don’t even get why there is a fold out when a cover with Aline, Ana, Isabelli, and Izabel would have been stronger without it.

Lindsay Ellingson by Nicole Heiniger for Elle Brazil. I thought I was never going to say this, but that is too much leopard print even for me. That and the styling is just incredibly weak and tired (not to mention the fact that it looks like Lindsay’s head is out of place).

0402144

Actress Fernanda Lima by Fabio Bartelt for Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. Love the blue background, that it’s finally not Thairine Garcia on the cover for a change, and that they made Fernanda Lima look cool and sophisticated.

0403141

Paola Rahmeier by Paulo Vainer for L’Officiel Brazil. Best cover of the magazine so far. No funny text, pretty hair and make up, and a Dolce & Gabbana dress. Hope they can keep it up and start cleaning the image of the past two years.

Ana Beatriz Barros styled by Heleno Manoel and photographed by Cristiano Madureira for the current issue of Istoé Gente. By far the best bridal story published in a Brazilian publication this year and also my favorite story featuring Ana Beatriz in a while.

Helena Christensen by Karl Lagerfeld for the 25th anniversary issue of Elle Brazil. A great achievement for Elle Brazil to have Karl Lagerfeld shoot the cover story of its anniversary issue, but I actually prefer Naomi Campbell’s Vogue Brazil cover this month. Cannot wait to see the stories in this issue though.

0502131

Kate Upton by Carine Roitfeld and Sebastian Faena for Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. Another one of Carine’s global covers for Harper’s Bazaar, only this time it makes absolute zero sense for a Brazilian publication.

0502132

Ana Beatriz Barros by Paschoal Rodriguez for L’Officiel Brazil. There are so many things wrong with this cover I don’t even know where to begin. Ignore the insanely awful styling and the type, and the biggest problem is that the person in the picture looks absolutely nothing like Ana Beatriz Barros. That is the without a doubt the worst retouching cover job I have seen in Brazil in a very long time.

 

Watch:
Lenny Niemeyer S/S 2014

In spite of the Balenciaga spring 2013 references (which are everywhere this season in Brazil by the way), Lenny’s was the possibly chicest spring 2014 show so far, and Shirley Mallmann looked more stunning than ever opening it.
