The highest-paid model in the world and the model number 1 of Brazil finally star in a campaign together. Gisele Bünchen and Marlon Teixeira – nicknamed “Gisele pants” – were chosen as the new posters of Venezuelan fashion designer perfume Caroline Herrera, 212 Vip. “I didn’t know her, this was our first contact. Gisele has a great energy, is superprofissional and deserves all the recognition she has won”, says Marlon.
The photos and the commercial, made recently in New York, if you are at a party. “I love dancing. When I go to a party, don’t sit around one minute. It’s hard to get me off the dance floor”, says top.
Together, they will be the attraction of fragrance launch party that happens in 10 days, during fashion week in New York. And it touches on Gisele iPod lately? “I’m crazy for songs from the 80′s, I find it very funny. Also love Daft Punk and Rihanna”.

The oracle of the “reptile” style according to Cartier
“They admired my beauty and intelligence, I was only a woman with the heart of a man. A warrior.” María Félix One of Cartier’s faithful customers, a character of legend and cinema whose wild beauty was depicted to perfection in black and white, her appearances enflamed both hearts and imaginations. With glowing eyes, jet-black hair, lips outlined in red and the longest hands, she did everything with passion. A lover of love, at 28, she was the most famous Latin-American actress in the world.
Maria Felix The home of this half-Indian, half-Spanish star, known for her spectacular jewellery, boasted a flamboyant baroque-style interior, with swan-neck taps and all-gold scales in her bathroom, a whim which she asked Cartier to create. Her taste was for the tailormade product, the nonconformist object that suddenly transformed everyday articles into extremely precious items. Her true accomplice, Cartier took such pride in the diva’s fantastical jewellery that years later, the jeweller purchased them to include them in the Collection Cartier. Special features of the Cartier heritage, like Gloria Swanson’s crystal bracelets or Barbara Hutton’s tigers, they are now part of a historic collection displayed in the greatest museums around the world. In 1999 at the Muséo del Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico, María Félix, the guest of honour at the exhibition Resplendor del tiempo, took part, visibly touched, in the spectacular staging of her animals. Following in the wake of the Duchess of Windsor, Daisy Fellowes, Elisabeth Taylor or Jacqueline Delubac, María Félix was one of those women who invented their own style, with María leaving her famous look in the hands of Cartier.
The crocodile, the star’s iconic talisman “Her animals”; this is what she called her bejewelled mascots which were part of her animal collection, including the crocodile which remained her iconic talisman, a sacred reptile in Egypt, and the symbol of death and rebirth for the Aztecs. She wore it around her neck, and had a double of this extravagant necklace made by Cartier in 1975. A work larger than life was drawn, created and set based on the original, when the star visited Cartier along with a live baby crocodile in a jar and insisted that a miniature jewelled version of the reptile be made as quickly as possible, as the original never stopped growing! Cartier rose to the occasion-it was not the master of the largest jewellery animal collection for nothing-and shaped María’s dreams in the form of a beast lying in wait. Head, tail, and feet were articulated, its eyes glowed with life, with 1,023 jonquille diamonds for one and 1,066 emeralds for the other. She loved it and wore it as a symbol of exuberance and freedom, representing elegance pushed to its limits, and accompanied by a red cape and black sombrero.

Welcome to THE KRAFTWERKSTYLE Report on Women’s Fashion Trends this brochure will show you the key trends to look out for as you update your winter wardrobe:
BOY MEETS GIRL
Androgyny is back in all its cross-dressing glory. Models were chosen specifically to highlight this gender-blend and it made for some double-takes on the catwalks. These wonderfully quirky silhouettes, with willowy limbs of women dressed-up as men, had a curious impact on the audience and on the fall of fabric
.This masculine-feminine story climaxes with combinations of loose-fitting slouchy trousers in a pinstripe, coupled with an oversized boyfriend jacket and an extra-large coat.We also see: flat caps and school colours worn as scarves, exposed long socks, laced brogues and briefcase shaped bags. There is some femininity in the hair and make-up, but fundamentally this trend is about passing for a boy or a man.
Inspiration from 14th century religious garments (as so often depicted by Flemish paintings of the time), imbue a sense of purity, naivety and innocence to these dresses. The robes of cardinals, monks, nuns and priests influence a trend that is serene and Godly.
They were refreshed with the right amount of contemporary influence that combined to make a modest but powerful statement containing religious twists, such as cuffs, collars ruffs, yokes, hoods capes wimples, tapestry embellishments and heavy embroidery.
Often simple and plain in colour these pious gowns remind us of what good girls should look like.
Heavy brocade and fantasy references build this Medieval trend into something of note. There are puffed sleeves, cages of gold mesh and armour, all finished with opulent and luxuriant details. There is something of the dark ages about these full length dresses, studded plating and grand silhouettes. Criss-cross embellishment and the split sleeve are delicate ways to do this trend in real-life.
From Perspex covered jackets and aggressive fur to slogan and multi-coloured hair, punk attitude is everywhere. The Rebel has roots which can be traced back to the Met Ball earlier in the year and our only traceable trend. Designed to get rebellious young wealthy teenagers to buy high-end fashion, with its harsh prints and combative styling manages to be on the one hand deeply sexy, whilst also being horribly ugly. Think Rebel with a cause and look for metallic finishes and oversized jewellery.
The Key Pieces
THE NEW SKIRT
Called the “fit and flare” this elegant mid-calf length skirt has a kick at the knee. With a generous use of woven fabrics, it bestows a mature yet contemporary line. Often seen accompanied by a tail of fabric or an additional embellishment, it is a mini trend of its own. Look for a perfectly fitted skirt with interesting folds or flicks of fabric that appear somewhere above the knee, but with a hem, finishing below the knee.
THE NEW COAT
The rounded shoulder and the enveloping exuberance of a heavy “luxe” fabric will encase us once again this AW13. With a soft shoulder and often accompanied by a thick belt the cocoon of these coats and jumpers is mellowed by the shorter length and the sharper collars. This is a popular shape in wearable colours, giving the observer a tantalising notion of what may lie beneath.
The Key Fabric
If you invest in one fabric this autumn make it PVC, the material that has made a storming come-back this season. On everything from trench coats and cocktail dresses to corsets and thigh boots. This high-shine, liquid-like lustrous fabric added a new version of polish to both day and night looks. Once unloved, now adored.
The Key Print
London has been leading the way with print for the last eight seasons and this year is no exception. Floral prints take centre stage and look set to stay another winter. Prints applique and cut velvet make these blooms stand apart from their fabrics, appearing almost 3D. The background of the fabric often remains one colour to allow this effect to have the greatest impact. These blooms are not overtly feminine nor are they super realistic as we have previously seen, but instead promote a simplistic and dramatic appearance.
The Key Neckline
This neckline has poked out of the archives with such profusion that is impossible to ignore. We had been unaware that the turtle neck was absent until it re-appeared with such gusto that one was reminded of its very existence. It is hard to define a trend based on a neckline alone, but in this instance most fashion writers agree, it is back and forms a statement whether it is gracing a poncho, knitwear scarves, shirts, dresses or jackets. Consider it the essential layering tool for the season.
