Now Visiting: Brazil


Ah, travel. That magical pursuit wherein one experiences the culture of another land, samples exotic delicacies, and, if traveling via Pirelli Calendar, sees a variety of top models in states of undress. At least, that’s the business as usual. But the Pirelli company unveiled its 2013 calendar in Brazil today, and while it stars a cast of beauties—Brazilians Isabeli Fontana and Adriana Lima, as well as Elisa Sednaoui, Hanaa Ben Abdesslem, Liya Kebede, Karlie Kloss, and Kyleigh Kuhn, among others—this year’s photographer, Steve McCurry, promises less cheesecake. “You can photograph nudes anywhere,” McCurry said at a press conference in Rio this morning. “But these models are clothed, and each of them has her own charity. They are purposeful and idealistic people. So I wanted to photograph them in a special place, and Rio was perfect for this.” (It’s a very different Brazil than was captured in Patrick Demarchelier’s 2005 calendar, also shot in the country, or Terry Richardson’s 2010 take.) Portraits of the models, as well as of Brazilian actress Sônia Braga and singer Marisa Monte, alternate with those of everyday life in the city.

Narciso’s Night Out


Despite several designers forgoing after-parties this week, Narciso Rodriguez was having none of it. “We’re focused on the collection for so many months and then there’s that short time on the runway, and then you need to relax,” the designer declared at his elbow-to-elbow post-show fête at Rose Bar, where Julianna Margulies, Jessica Seinfeld, and Sonia Braga held court on the couches. Kanye West, with eight members of his entourage, sat at a blocked-off table next to Claire Danes. “I feel much more invested emotionally when I go see Narciso’s shows,” Danes said. “I’m always proud of him.” On his end, Rodriguez was looking forward to a fashion detox. “Tomorrow I try to get back to a normal routine,” he said. Where will he begin? “There’s some sort of yoga involved,” he said, and left it at that.
