There are more beautiful women in Brazil than there are in Eastern Europe.
In eastern europe, from my observations, there are the few gorgeous women and then the rest are GROSS (Warts, Moles, gross teeth included)
In Brazil there are far more attractive women. To think of it, I don't remember ever seeing an ugly Brazilian woman.
I dont think the discussion revolves around which area is 'ugly' or which is 'beautiful'!!
it's a business interpretation of the fashion business-- and its true brazil was big about 5 years ago. and the last few years have belonged to russia/east europe [and other europeans & canada].
there are beautiful women in EVERY country I dont think this should turn into an ugly vs beauty ethnographic debate!!
Maybe the superboom is over for the brazilians, but there are a lot of girls still around and new comers. Plus the list that opened this topic includes lots of commercial models and let out some fashion ones... go to style.com see how many brazilians are there -- LOTS.
And south america IS NOT a continent. I know the USA loves to proclaim as America ( like its just them and nothing else) . Anyhow, Im not gonna get into a political discussion.
5 continents : America, Europe,Asia, Africa & Oceania
I think in terms of the fashion industry and what is the 'in' thing right now - Eastern Europeans models are it. But it's all subjective. I think it's scandalous to suggest one season a nationality is in and the next it's out! It's thinly veiled prejudice
I agree with that roppal
Personally I can't make a decision between those two ends of the world (ok, not really ends, but nearly), although I can relate more to the Europeans considering I am from the Netherlands. Also, I'm not too fond of the tanned beachy Brazilians (Isabeli, Adriana, Fernanda), but their fellow Brazilian models compensate that (Cintia, Jeisa, Milagros, Caroline, Jessica P, Michelli).
Oh that's so sad. I taught my students a song about the continents that goes like this,
North America, South America, Africa, Eurpope and Asia. Don't forget Antartica, don't forget Australia. .......Now what am I going to tell them???
Sorry about the off topic but this is serious.
I have to agree with you , in school my teachers taught me always that we have 7 continents... I'm confused to hear that South America is not a continent....
I think it's seasonal, one day is Brazilian, the next Russian, or German or English. But at the moment it's the Eastern Euro/Russian invasion. I remeber several years ago when almost all the model backstage are yelling at each other in portuguese. now they're just like a sweet dream, we woke up to find them just a handful. Luck plays a lot in modelling you just have to be in the right moment and the right theme.
I think I have to change my view now: I favour theEuropeans!
Cheminazzo, Trentini, Fontana, Francischini are 100% Italian surnames
Leticia B has Swedish & Italian roots. she said that on Rede TV. a résumée of the interview posted a couple of years ago by a brasilian guy : "Leticia was discovered during a volley ball match. She went after the ball when it bounced away from the court, and a dude asked if he could talk to her. She said no, because she was in the middle of the game and said to the guy that they could talk later. She was 18 at the time. Well, the dude waited there 2 hours, and after the match was over, he revealed itself as a model that worked for and agency in São Paulo. He encouraged her to become a model but she said she needed to ask her mother first. The guy went to a phone cabin, and phoned her mother. Her mother was surprised, because a stranger was phoning her about her daughter becoming a model. The scout, asked Leticia to go to São Paulo, but she didn't.
After a month, a photographer came from São Paulo and met Leticia. He asked her to do a photography session with him, like a test. He was just dazzled by Leticia. He finally had to return to São Paulo, and there Elite, saw Letici'as pics and was very impressed. Well, Elite found Leticia's phone number and pestered her mother to come to São Paulo. Her mother decided to spend the january vacation there, so she went along with Leticia and she finally decided staying with Mega.
She mentioned two model agencies: New York Models and Mega. She also explained that herOriental look is due to her Swedish descendence. She has both Swedish and Italian descedence. She speeks five languages fluently: french, italian, english, spanish and portuguese.
She had a sister that is much younger than her and is an actress. Her sister just ended doing a Soap Opera in Globo, her name is Michelle. Leticia is currently 24 years old.
Her surname is german: Birkheuer and is pronounced very differently than I thought. It's something like Bee-keu-er
Leticia acted in a movie! with Gwyneth Patrol. The name in Brazil was called "O amor é Cego". In the movie she palyed herself, but she didn't say anything. She appeared in a scene where everyone was dancing in a saloon. She currently attended tests to be in Brad Pitt's new movie about the war in Greece.
She didn't mention any new works, but she did say that 2002 was her best year. She won much more money. She also said that she currently lives in New York, and has plans to continue living there.
She just came from Europe, where she spent like a month with her mother. She also said that she is investing her money on stuff for her house. Her father takes care of her money and her mother goes along with her in the trips"
Raquel Zimmermann and Cintia Dicker parents are from Germany_ they said that on FTV
