Gisele And Neymar By Mario Testino
On The Cover Of Vogue Brazil


Vogue Brazil celebrates the 2014 World Cup with Gisele and soccer star Neymar photographed by Mario Testino. It is obviously not as hot as Testino’s shot of Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk for Vogue Spain, but still it is a great cover. Very happy to see two beautiful covers of Vogue Brazil back to back.


RiRi Tropical:
Rihanna In Vogue Brazil


One of my favorite stories with Rihanna recently, styled by Yasmine Sterea and photographed by Mariano Vivanco. I really wish Vogue Brazil would start producing more pictures like those which feel relevant on an international level but still echo a certain Brazilian-ness. View more after the break.


Rihanna By Mariano Vivanco On The
Covers Of The May Issue Of Vogue Brazil


By far one of the best, most interesting, and most relevant covers Vogue Brazil has published in the past five years. I really hope the magazine starts steering more in this direction because that is exactly what Vogue Brazil should look like.

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).


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.


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.
