Before model divas like Gisele Bündchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima…there was a time when Brazilian models had already arrived in the fashion world arena; but those were times when fashion was really fashion and when fantasy was fantasy…now it is a mediocre busine$$ measured by how relevant you can become…
Models like Dalma Callado, Beth Prado, Gisele Zelauy and Betty Lago, all had successful careers out of their native country Brazil. I grew up admiring these models. Betty Lago, who had become an actress, passed away this morning in her Leblon home in Rio de Janeiro, she suffered from bladder cancer, she has been fighting this battle since 2012. She was 60 years old.

launch of PEJIC X SNYDER jewelry collection
at Gilded Lily
NY 04/03/2014

Last night, I dropped by at Gilded Lily to show support to the gorgeous Australian born model Andrej Pejic. The room was filled with models and fashionistas; Andrej joined forces with Sam Snyder in a 10 piece jewelry collaboration, their collection is inspired by Bezier curves – infinitely smooth curvilinear surfaces that inspire movement. Very urban chic. A portion of the proceeds benefits the efforts of Ali Forney Center.
