Sorry, not sure where this was taken but it was during New York Fashion Week (I think!) and the leather pants are by Helmut Lang.

Gisele Defends Tom After Superbowl Loss

06 February 2012, 21.01 | Posted in Models, celebrity | No comments »

Watch as Giselle gets heckled by Giants fans in the video above as she leaves the stadium after yesterday’s Superbowl. In the video you can hear her say, “My husband cannot fucking throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” referring to her husband Tom Brady’s passes dropped by New England Patriots receivers.

First impression–even just being a regular person she stands out as really tall and oh-so-striking with her long, sexy hair. Second: I love her unfilteredness (see prior quotes on breastfeeding and sunscreen) in general and here it’s expressed in the form of loyalty–a trait that wins her bonus points with me. Third: But she shouldn’t blame Tommy’s teammates, that may be okay in the me-me-me world of supermodels but in sports it is often said there is no “I” in team. And finally, I feel for her having to deal with sports fans and their often extra-mean-for-the-fun-of-it, anti-female, fashion and foreigner mentality. Check any of the comments sections for this story elsewhere and they are awful. I always think the fashion industry is cold-hearted, but it’s a fluff ball compared to sports.

Giselle on Cover of Vogue ‘Shape’ Issue

New mom Giselle will be on the April cover of Vogue magazine, as shot by Patrick Demarchelier It’s the “shape” issue, which, given Giselle’s status as a supermodel is naturally going to make people freak out. The idea is that Giselle was shot just six weeks after her little boo-boo, Benjamin Rein, was born. Still, given how little she is in this image, people are going to be ticked. The Brazillian babe says there’s a reason she bounced back so quick: “I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born, and yoga three days a week. I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds.”

To see behind the images from the shoot and video, visit Vogue.

LaBron & Tom Brady’s Woman on Cover of Vogue

LaBron LaBron & Tom Bradys Woman on Cover of Vogue

LeBron, as you can see, is on this month’s cover of Vogue. The photograph is arresting, I’ll give the man behind the camera that, but other than that there’s definitely shit about this image that irritates me, but rather than climb up on top of a soapbox (it’s way too early for that!), I’m gonna break this thing down like a report card:

Vogue’s willingness to put a black model on the cover even when the male subject is a brother: F (Though maybe this should be a “C” since this is very typical, come-to-be-expected kind of shit out of Vogue.)

Level of stertotypical poking at race relationships by pairing the hulking black man with the frail white chick: C

Hilariousness of dumb-ass/ignorant comments made by fashion bloggers attempting to comment on either LeBron or the game of hoops: B+

Wrongness of pairing Picasso-face (that would be Gisele) with LeBron when she already has an extremely high-profile relationship with a very famous– albeit not nearly as hulking–professional athlete (that would be frat-boy archtypeTom Brady): C+

Ickiness of being Gisele knowing that your boyfriend once had a semi-serious relationship with Tara Reid: A++++

Cheers!
