Check out my latest Bleader post here.

Gigi


Gigi was shot during one of the fun events being promoted by Macy's to celebrate their "Brasil - A Magical Journey" campaign (see more about it in the post below).

She's holding a clutch by Brazilian up-and-coming handbag designer Diego Rocha.

Carlos




Carlos Falchi is a super talented Brazilian-born handbag and accessories designer now known all over for his gorgeous python and alligator patchwork bags - see his latest collection for Macy's here. He's surrounded by girls wearing the typical Brazilian carnival costume.

Carlos was shot during one of the many cool events Macy's is promoting to celebrate their "Brasil - A Magical Jouney" campaign. In this one they presented a few capsule collections by Brazilian designers Francisco Costa (Calvin Klein), Dudu Bertholini and Rita Comparato (Neon), Carlos Falchi himself and many more (see all of them here). There was also a very special performance by Bebel Gilberto. And acarajé. And caipirinhas. FUN!

* I'd like to thank Sergio Barreto from Chicagoano for the invite. His site is a great resource for all things Brazilian in Chicago by the way, really worth checking out.

THIS FRIDAY!
