Possibilities...

This new Vogue-endorsed policy opens up some interesting possibilities - on two main fronts:

a. Since US Vogue officially insults the GUESS? spokesmodel (Paris Hilton) the Marciano brothers could grab the opportunity and make a public announcement denouncing AW's attack on Paris Hilton - and perhaps threaten to withdraw their advertising from US Vogue (or other Conde Nast publications too) as a response. That would give them a major public relations opportunity - in the past five years, nobody has dared to touch AW, but now that her cronies are talking bull and look further detached from the reality of the average American than ever before, it's the perfect time to take a jibe at them. After all,"GUESS? Model" is used as a derogatory term by AW's lackeys - maybe that approach will piss off Conde Nast, but in the end, AW's superiors will beg them to come back with their ad dollars, like they did with Giorgio Armani and L'Oreal. When people find out that many others, like Geoffry Beene, Azzedine Alaia, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent etc had similar complaints in the past, they'll start realizing that something is rotten in AW's kingdom.

b. The big questionmark is Paris Hilton herself - she has no trouble sneering at "models in development" who dare to sit at her club table, but would she (and her family) strike back at the Conde Nasties for insulting her? I would love to see Paris trashing AW and her lame models on prime time TV - it would be a major source of embarassment for the Nasties. She could make a career out of lampooning AW and her cronies - after all, she is American old money, whereas AW is an middle-class import from England who wished she was royalty. It should be fun !!!

Beene on AW:
"...a boss lady in four-wheel drive who ignores or abandons those who do not fuel her tank. As an editor, she has turned class into mass, taste into waste. Is she not a trend herself?..."

A model I really like is Jéssica Pauletto [www.fotolog.net/slayerdoll] who I've been told will be on the next Arezzo and Lucy in the Sky ads =)

Hmm...Bruna Freire?

Can Jéssica or a friend supply me with a large size pic of the four "ninfetas" (OOooohhhhhhoooo) in the Arezzo pic?

Bruna Freire, Lucy Horn, Bruna Erhardt(?) Jéssica Pauletto -- I guess it makes it a Marilyn Brazil package...
