Brazilian Beauty

June 9, 2010

We never really made it to Southern Brazil.  We went to Floripa and Pontos dos Ganchos, but not to Curitiba or Rio Grande do Sul.  This article in today’s New York Times about model scouts who head down there to pluck out the perfect blend on German, Italian and maybe some Slavic models who have the right combination of light eyes, legginess, and straight hair, is pretty interesting.  This piece makes it sounds like it’s changing and agencies (and the public in general) is embracing a wider variety of looks, but it seems a little late in the game, no?
