The NoTricks site has an interview with S Mattos of 40 Graus agency in Rio -he confirms that Testino shot a "special" for Paris Vogue with Isabeli and lots of other Brazilians.

Other news - Marcelle Bitar and Jeiza Chiminazzo are in the new campain for Arezzo.
Leticia Birkheuer is in the new Armani Mania Femme perfume campaign. She also did a cover shoot for Elle Brazil and will be the star in a Brazilian film.
She doesn't seem to be that popular in NYC though - even if Ivan Bart's buddies listed her as one of modeling's top earners in Forbes. Guinevere, who hovers below the modeling horizon, also with IMG, seems to be a lot hipper with the 'Mary Poppins' crowd. Tells you how much these characters value the earnings potential of a model - if I owned IMG Models, I would either fire the top management or offload the operation as fast as I could...
Laryssa Castro is in the Animale campain

And in case you haven't noticed - I repeat that the sensual Brenda Costa is the new Guerlain Shalimar model, replacing Fernanda Tavares.
As for who the new Covergirl mod is - blah ! - someone who was replaced after a couple of seasons as the Dior J'Adore mod - that was the biggest job one of the 'new' high fashion mods ever got, but it didn't last long...
If you want a good laugh - check out the cover of German GQ for the new generation of 'supermodels'...boy, this is going to cost them dearly...
Couldn't they at least inform the NYC types so that could include Luca, Emina and whatshername in their "sexy models" list?

I think Tiiu is perfect for Covergirl. Who would you have suggested? Elena R? And she was replaced by Charlize Theron AFTER she won an Academy Award. That's far different than being replaced by another model, just to put it in perspective.

I have no idea who may be perfect for Covergirl - and if Tiiu was a success and helped sell the product, she would still be doing J'Adore.

Check out the Dior cosmetics ad with Olga Elnikova (in supermodels.nl) to see the difference in quality between two similar-looking mods...

That Dior ad with Olga is horrid, I have to say.
And who really knows if Tiiu was a success for Dior. She probably was, maybe she wasn't. But I hardly doubt that Dior experienced a huge slump in sales after signing Tiiu. Celebrities sell more products than any model, regardless. Dior was just trying to profit from Charlize's sudden streak of fame. I'm certain (as well as you) that if horse-face Julia Roberts were to pitch the same product, as say someone as gorgeous as Fernanda Tavares, Julia would sell more, period.
