How exactly the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics make their mark in history, we can at least say that Gisele Bündchen showed. The super model/Tom Brady’s wife came out to walk what she Instagrammed “the longest runway I’ve ever been on,” (5oo feet actually) to the song “The Girl From Ipanema.”
Gisele, a Brazilian herself, was wearing Alexandre Herchcovitch.
Certainly a ‘product-of-our-times’ story…“Executive producer Kim Kardashian West, the most influential style icon on the planet, is searching for America’s next superstar beauty blogger!” a Facebook notice reads for Kim’s K’s new T.V. contest. The new ‘reality’ competitive series will see beauty bloggers looking to win “the ultimate job as Beauty Director for Kardashian Apps.”
Questions that could asked: What planet is Kim Kardashian West the most influential style icon of and, is working for her apps really the ultimate job?
Supporting one of their own? Not exactly, still a whopping one hundred and eleven major fashion designers and other notables in the moda world have rallied behind Apple. The major computer/things maker is embroiled in a current lawsuit with Samsung over copyright infringement.
The designers showing support include Paul Smith, Alber Elbaz and a host of others.
Speaking of T.V. shows, the trailer for “Strut,” the new show exec produced by Whoopi Goldberg and to be shown on the Oxygen network has a trailer out now. Partnering with Slay Model Management — the first all trans modeling agency — the show will show the personal lives of five transgender models as they negotiate the fashion industry. Normal reality television rules though seem to apply if the scenes shown in the trailer can be trusted.
The show, staring these unique couture cuties: Dominique Jackson, Ren Spriggs, Laith De La Cruz, Isis King and Arisce Wanzer, premieres on Tues., Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. EST/PST on Oxygen.
