Does Scarlett "walking, talking product placement" Johansson, on the cover of US H Bazaar, look like a (low budget) version of a certain Brazilian model?




The world beyond such "Conde Nast friendly" publications as the NYT or WWD can be cruel - check out what the UK Guardian had to say about the photography on the Vanity Fair cover and compare to the usual US suckup jobs.
What about models on covers?
Who cares?

Clueless Q #698 - now that AW's darling chic trashiette, Kate Moss, hooked up with a dude who openly does heroin , will the "Mary Poppins" crowd in NYC show any concern?

Amy Wesson was blacklisted in NYC for nearly a decade - not because she had a drug habit, but because she embarassed some top biz people when her habit hit the headlines and it turned out that the hip fashion characters at the time knew about it and did nothing to help her (anyone remembers who were the photographers who used Amy a lot back in 95-97?)
One of the premier blacklisters in the NYC biz started using Amy again, in his pet mag project - as for the rest of AW's fun club, I bet they will only get shocked if an unhip model does "excess nudity"...

17 yo gauchinha Cintia Dicker is in H&M, L'Oreal, MAC cosmetics and the new campaign for D Squared (shot by S Klein).
Meanwhile, some hip IMG mods are not exactly visible lately - Guinevere's lack of work is getting embarassing...not that her "NYC hip" status will suffer too much.

Commenting on an older post, about Ana Bia's nicknames in school... "Ana Bia Perna Fina" means "Skinny Legs" or "Legs like a stick" or something in those lines. "Bocão Royal" probably mens they thought she had a big mouth. Bocão literally means "big mouth". Bocão Royal was a character made up by a jell-o factory (Royal) to promote the product, and, of course, Bocão Royal had an unsually large mouth.

FV, do you think that a pic of Scarlett costs less than one of ABB ? Scarlett is very famous...
