Michele Alves (in the pic) is still with Guy Oseary, Madonna's manager and director of Maverick Records - and she is four months pregnant (it's a boy)
Despite the pregnancy, she will be doing several shows in SP - the last info mentions a total of eleven, among them Água de Coco, Cia Marítima, Lino Villaventura, Osklen and Movimento.
Her agent in Brazil is now Gisele's old booker, so her PR should improve significantly...

The new Cia Maritima campaign features Eliza Joenck (yeay) and cute youngster Yasmin Brunet - whose PR is at least as good as Gisele's in Brazil...the show will feature Michele, Ellen Jabour (another of many Gisele lookalikes) Marcele Bittar and Carol Ribeiro...plus Gianne Albertoni, said to have the "best body" currently
SPFW guest models list updated - Elise Crombez and Kim Noorda...
Fernanda Tavares returns to Brazil - she will be in the new campaign for Sais...she is now in Italy to shoot an ed for Vogue Italia, and will come back to SP to do a show after SPFW is over...

Michele of course doesn't appeal to the hipster cabal in NYC - she has a classic feminine elegant look, which is totally alien to them (Tom Ford's fave female beauties are said to be Stevie Nicks and Farah Fawcett (!!) - and he is supposedly on the "elegant" side...)
Her look is very similar to Rhea Durham, who is almost forgotten today - but in the late 90s, Rhea replaced Cindy C as the Revlon girl, and was one of very few NYC models who could sell products internationally and didn't look like the typical midwest / deep south trailer trash mod material that the cabal so adores...
