The Brazilian PR for Gisele's dad and his new book broke only a couple of days ago...am I ahead of the news, or what...see my April 10th post.

Leticia Birkheuer (and Cintia Dicker) aren't very popular with the 'Mary Poppins' crowd in NYC it seems - they were removed from the 'hip in NYC' model charts. Not that too many people care anyway, but I just saw the TV spot for a Dior perfume, Poison, where Leticia looks great... and she is testing for the new soap opera by Silvio de Abreu, to star in the main role as 'Belissima'. Leticia's sister, Michele, who also models for Pantene and Triumph,is already a well-known TV star in Brazil. NYC fashion 'professionals' however see more potential in names like IMG's Guinevere van Seenus, one of S. Meisel's faves back in 1997 - and other similar beauty-challenged models...

"Lost" mods Dept - what happened to Maria Talyzina? Drop me a line if you know what she is up to...

I haven't seen her when she last she awas in Tokyo in 2002.

Is this list of "hip mods" in Ny viewable somewhere, or is it just insider info?

No insider info - it's the well-known "Top 50" list

It supposedly applies to all of "high fashion", but if the mod is not NYC-based or gets her jobs mainly via European or other non-NYC agencies, it's like she doesn't exist

which is why I refer to it as "hip in NYC"

Is it the list that can be viewed at models.com? I mean there's a top 50 list and Cinthia is not included... sorry if I'm bothering, but I'm just a newcomer.
