JC speaks out

You may remember that J Casablancas gave a big party in Rio around New Years and it was reported at the time that he was about to return to NYC and manage the new Elite there
Maybe all this happened, but I doubt anyone noticed...

Anyway, JC talked to 'O Globo' in Brazil and he reportedly said - this is no joke, I swear - that the only fashion model right now that closely resembles the classic 'supermodel' - of the Gisele, Cindy C and Naomi C variety - is...Ana Beatriz Barros.

I am not sure whether this is good or bad for Ana - the last big call JC made was advising gorgeous Elsa Benitez to move to Next from Elite - she disappeared from the face of the earth since...

Maybe JC hopes Botox Wintour, Meisel and Co will get blown up in the next Bin Laden strike and things will go back to the way they were in the 90s - otherwise, I don't see how the 'Mary Poppins' crowd in NYC will have anything to do with sensual and attractive women...

The good thing is that JC is not bitter about Ana - who said some nasty things about JC's promises when she left Elite for IMG...

The same cannot be said for Gisele - last month, a Brazilian source reported that JC was thinking about making a 'fashion movie' - the plot would allegedly include a 'Gisele satire'
I guess that means a young Gis puffing on a joint (JC alleged Gis spent most of her time smoking weed once) and visiting a plastic surgeon...

Update: Vogue.co.uk just posted this...

JOHN CASABLANCAS stands by his claim that Gisele Bundchen is a "monster of selfishness". The model man, who founded Elite Models 34 years ago before retiring to Brazil five years ago and being tempted back into the business by its new owner, Eddie Trump, in January, is clearly still angry with the model who he is credited with discovering when she was 14-years-old. "When I criticise Saint Gisele it is only to put things on the right perspective," he told the Brazilian paper O Globo. "She behaved badly with people who made everything for her. There are those people who are humble and keep that in mind, and others who pretend they were born superstars." Casablancas, who tore into the 24-year-old model when she defected from Elite to IMG in 2000, also once famously branded Heidi Klum a "German sausage". (March 29 2005, PM)
