WikiLeaks: the new fashion journalism? Among the revelations included in the thousands of pages of classified U.S. foreign policy documents—all full of less-than-favorable judgments on foreign leaders and attachés—recently released by the upstart organization, Vogue Italia plucked out a bit of sartorial snark: “Lady Mehriban Aliyeva”—the wife of Ilham Aliyev, President of Azerbaijan—”appears to have had substantial cosmetic surgery, presumably overseas, and wears dresses that would be considered provocative even in the Western world. On television, in photos, and in person, she appears unable to show a full range of facial expression.” [Vogue Italia]
Speaking of biting criticisms, UBS bankers were subjected to a few, too. The Wall Street Journal reports on a 43-page memo being sent to staff at five Swiss offices, which includes guidelines for appropriate dressing and general comportment (no eating onions or garlic!) for staffers. Among them? Be sure to match your tie knot to your face and/or body shape, please. [WSJ via Racked]
From the celebrity front: After less than two years, Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are calling it quits and divorcing. At least they’ve put out one of the more truthful and witty statements about it we’ve seen in a while: “While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.” Realists to the end, those two.

And Women checks in with model Bruna Tenorio, who shares her favorite photo of herself (an early black-and-white shot by Mario Sorrenti), favorite cities (Rio, Paris, and New York), and her favorite drink (“the full cream milk at Starbucks”—we’re not sure what that means, but we like the sound of it).

Fashion doesn’t exactly abide by regular schedules. So while the rest of the country was enjoying a luxurious long weekend, models were scampering around town proving that their runway struts (and figures) were sharp as ever. On a breezy, perfect sort of NYC Saturday, Andrew Weir of ACW Worldwide was casting for a bevy of fashion week shows, including Ruffian, Y-3, and Zac Posen’s Z Spoke at the Hudson Hotel (to the alternately pleased and gawkish stares of hotel guests). Marc Jacobs favorite Hannah Holman stopped by on the early side. “Everyone loves fashion week, but everybody hates all the work getting up to there, castings, fittings,” Holman divulged. “Fittings can be the worst. You sometimes are standing there for hours while they literally make the garments on you. That’s why we’re all skinny and depleted when it comes to Paris! And we’re eating pasta everyday!”
Weir was apt to agree. “I love seeing the girls when they’re in New York,” he said. “They’re coming off summer, so they’re always so fresh.” Healthy being model-dom’s mantra of the moment, Weir was particularly on the lookout for new girls with a glow about them. Stephanie Rad of Marilyn was making waves with her golden good looks, but there were plenty of fresh faces from Holland and Norway to launch a Dutch/Scandinavian invasion. That’s not to say many new girls make the first cut. “I might find one, maybe two gems,” Weir noted. Particularly if “old” hats like Diana Moldovan, Daiane Conterato, and Bruna Tenorio promptly proved they’re not going anywhere with one pro sashay down the test runway. But even Chanel haute couture closer Iris Strubegger (left) was better than to think she had any job security. “Well, you never know. The next new girl may come along and you’re no longer at the top anymore,” the Austrian beauty said. “So I try to stay just as excited and try my best for every show and casting as when I first started.” Continue Reading “Cast Away” »
Brazilian models are the country’s most popular fashion export, and, aside from Gisele, who is probably busy basking in post-engagement bliss, many of the best-known names are in full glamorous effect on the runways here at Fashion Rio. Familiar faces Isabeli Fontana, Viviane Orth, Bruna Tenorio, and a bleached-blonde Ana Claudia Michels (in comeback mode after walking last season at Givenchy) all walked for Rio grande dame Mara Mac’s show. But the real news on this catwalker-dotted landscape is fresh face Carolina Thaler, who has been everywhere this week. If model scouts have any sense, she should be promptly shipped off to New York for castings next month—she’s guaranteed to be the next big Brazilian thing.
