Gisele Bundchen must be the modern Artemis, goddess of the forest. The Brazilian supermodel definitely loves Mother Nature, last year she had a campaign where in she wore a water dress that encourages everyone to conserve water.

Now she's back with another nature-loving campaign ad for her Ipanema flip flop line. She was in a forest outfit where leaves and vines hung all over her body. The new ad aims to raise awareness on atlantic deforestation and supporting the SOS Mata Atlantica.

By a special request of the Gisele and Grendene (owner of the Ipanema brand and also producer of Melissa shoes), SOS Mata Atlantica is planting 25,500 saplings of 100 different species to recover 15 hectares of Atlantic Forest in the Brazilian regions of Campinas and Bahia. The forest will be kept for five years by the mentioned organization with support from the sandals company until the plants are grown.

Dorothy got a bag of new ruby slippers. In fact she has too much of it that it will be auctioned next year (in connection with the 70th anniversary of the movie's release)to benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

From stiletto heels to platform soles that belonged to the Ruby Slipper Collection were unveiled at a party to mark New York Fashion Week. The said shoes or slippers are based on the iconic 1939 Hollywood movie starring Judy Garland as Dorothy. The collection was commissioned by Swarovski, which donated the crystals, in partnership with Saks and Warner Brothers and includes shoes by a dozen designers ranging from Abaete to Manolo Blahnik.

A lot of negative comments were published regarding a photo spread from the upcoming issue (September) of French Vogue. It features Raquel Zimmerman who wore a bright-orange crocs. I think it's a cayman model. What can you say?



As for me, I'll never wear crocs (especially this cayman model) because they're too big for my feet and they look like a boat. I don't hate Crocs, but I think they're best suited for kids.
