Face Bedazzling From Brazil


As soon as the lights went down on Istanbul fashion week, they went up on an entirely different continent as São Paulo fashion week got under way on Monday. The best part about the Brazilian fashion capital’s showcase of local design talent is that many of its homegrown catwalking heroes turn up for the festivities, too. Yesterday, Caroline Trentini walked the Animale show, while Isabeli Fontana, who returned to the runway in Paris for Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, and Anthony Vaccarello, among other shows, turned up at Tufi Duek. We are feeling those cornrows and the gold chrome nails, but it’s her face jewelry that’s really selling this look; never have we wanted a bridge piercing more. You, too?

Brad Pitt For Chanel No. 5; Heidi Klum Grabs An(other) Endorsement Deal; And More…


It’s official: The Jolie-Pitts are getting into the beauty contract business. But it’s Brad, not Angelina, who will be doing face time—for Chanel No. 5, no less. Is it weird that Pitt’s very masculine image will be used to sell the iconic women’s fragrance? Seeing as how this is the image in question (please direct your attention due left), the answer is decidedly “no.” [Chanel]

Unilever is poised to bring its Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy brand—a complete lineup of scalp and strand products already available in 42 other countries—to America this month, and they’re doing so with the star power of Heidi Klum, who will serve as brand ambassador. [NYT]

A new H&M ad featuring a scantily clad—and heavily bronzed—Isabeli Fontana is generating some complaints from the Swiss Cancer League, which is calling the images “alarming” and “completely [contradictory]” to their efforts to deter indoor and outdoor tanning abuse. Oops. [Daily Mail]

NARS Cosmetics’ heavily anticipated Andy Warhol color collection won’t be on shelves until October, but the brand has released a (very) short teaser video to generate excitement in the mean time. [YouTube]

Isabeli’s Pro Tips; Raquel’s Short Cut; And More…


We have yet another celebrity-fronted nail polish collection to report for your Friday reading pleasure: Brazilian beauty Isabeli Fontana has teamed up with South American nail brand Risque on a six-piece collection called Sweet Rock N’ Roll. Fingers crossed she gets a few bottles into gift bags at NYFW. [Garotas Estupidas]

In a recent interview, Jennifer Aniston reveals that her perma-tan, clear complexion comes pretty easy. “I don’t really have any beauty tips but drink a s**tload of water”—Smart Water, presumably. [Showbiz Spy]

Ashlee Simpson is the latest celeb to join the Balenciaga Blond platinum hair club after cutting her brunette locks into a pixie last year. Somehow, we’re still not that interested. [Us]

In hair transformations we do care about, Raquel Zimmermann has gone short. Her new shoulder-grazing length is one that we hope to see more of during the Fall shows. [Vogue Brazil]

Isabeli’s Permanent Makeup


If you’re a diehard Isabeli Fontana fan—and we know there are more than a few of you out there—you’re aware that she and her two (visible) tattoos are members of the elite squad that we are dubbing “models’ ink,” not to be confused with the ill-fated Aaron Spelling production of similar name. Counting Freja and Tasha Tilberg among her compatriots, Fontana has an ankle bracelet of branches that’s frequently on view perched upon a pair of strappy stilettos, as well as a less visible larger piece between her shoulder blades of two angel wings encasing the word “Zion.” We saw it a few times yesterday and had to ask the Brazilian beauty what it means: a Rastafarian promised-land reference? A tribute to the Matrix trilogy, perhaps? “It’s my son’s name,” she told us when we inquired—a way better response than the two we’d come up with.
