Chic´s award for the hardest-working models of Sao Paulo Fashion Week undoubtedly goes to Aline Weber, Daiane Conterato, and Bruna Tenorio (the trio recently shared a Vogue Brazil cover), but this weekend, three supers swooped in to steal the thunder. On Saturday afternoon, Raquel Zimmermann walked in Animale (the Brazilian has been their runway exclusive and campaign face for four years), Eva Herzigova took the catwalk at Adriana Degreas, and new mom and Brazilian national hero Gisele Bundchen walked for Colcci, drawing more security than the president. "It's almost like my baby, my country!" explained Zimmermann post-show of why she keeps coming back. "I have faith and I believe that Brazil will achieve a high standard in fashion circles. I know that it's still not there yet---you can't compare it to Paris or Milan---but it's growing, and like Portugal, like Spain, so many countries are getting into the international markets and I think Brazil is. There are two Brazilian designers that are doing really well outside Brazil. Pedro Lourenco is doing really well in Paris, and Alexandre Herchcovitch in New York, so I believe Brazil will get there!" So we know the design talent is strong in Sao Paulo, but Chic had to ask: is there something in the water? Why are there so many stunning models from Brazil? "I think it's because of the mixture of descendents that came from all over the world," continued Zimmermann. "You have everything here---Japanese, Dutch, African, German, Italian...all different mixes and that makes the beauty. It's the mix of people that makes the beauty.´" Whatever---we'll have what they're having!
