Style Scoop: Gisele Heads Home, Vogue Italia Tackles Domestic Violence, Brooklyn Steps Out


Don’t call it a comeback, because with her H&M and Emilio Pucci campaigns, Porter magazine cover debut, and lingerie-clad Marie Claire spread, Gisele Bündchen isn’t slowing down one bit. Still, we’ve seen little of the supermodel on the runway since her Fashion Month debut at Balenciaga in February. That is, until she strutted down the Colcci runway at São Paulo Fashion Week. Werk!

Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani is no stranger to controversy. Her glossy has covered the BP oil spill and featured racially-charged editorials criticized for “poor taste,” while she’s personally supported that debatable Kimye cover. In her latest act of shock and awe, the editrix tackled the issue of domestic violence—against women clad in Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs, no less. “We sell the dream because we are a magazine…,” she told The Independent. “But at the same time, we can give people the opportunity to have a voice, for awareness. It’s not about provocation, at all.” [Fashionista]

Just another reason for a jaunt to BK! The borough’s namesake museum is stepping out to explore the art of “Killer Heels.” Starting September 10th, the Brooklyn Museum will display more than 160 pairs of shoes from Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, Prada, and more, that will explore “fashion’s most provocative accessory.” [Brooklyn Museum]

Parents David and Victoria aren’t the only fashionable members of the Beckham brood. Their eldest son, Brooklyn Beckham, just made his modeling debut on the cover of Man About Town magazine. [Telegraph]
