Today I had another great walk...I walked with RG from our Cobertura in Alto Leblon to the end of Ipanema, instead of turning left and going towards Copacabana we turned back and stopped at the Fasano Hotel for breakfast....we again were driven back to Alto Leblon by our seguranças 

Brasil's Best Models

As Brasil prepares to host this year's World Cup, take a look at the modelling beauties the South American country has given the world

And these two are my favorites, and I am being impartial as friendship has nothing to do with their world status.

The queen of the Brasilian babes, Gisele is the world's highest-paid model. She was the first Brazilian model to find worldwide success and even Claudia Schiffer has dubbed her the last real supermodel. Now something of a brand in her own right, the model mogul boasts her own skincare and flip-flop ranges, campaigns for brands such as Chanel and Dior and a lengthy tenure with Victoria's Secret on her impressive CV. 

Adriana Lima is the longest-serving Victoria's Secret Angel, having maintained a contract with the lingerie brand for 13 years. She's famously dedicated to the cause too and has previously admitted to abstaining from any liquids for 12 hours before the show in order to 'dry out' and lose extra pounds. And she is in demand for many
commercial and print adds from around the world.

  1. 1.
    elegantly and stylishly fashionable.
    synonyms:stylish, elegant, sophisticated, dressy, smart; More

  1. 1.
    stylishness and elegance, typically of a specified kind.

Here’s a line I never thought I’d hear on Mad Men“Ive always thought Jewish women are the most beautiful women in the world.” 
While Jewish themes have appeared on Mad Men since its first season, sometimes disguised, sometimes overt—but then, always in the context of the “casual anti-Semitism” creator Matt Weiner coined—it still seemed as if Weiner was carefully keeping his Jewishness in check


In 2005, News Program - 60 minutes did a profile on Bollywood Actress Aishwarya Rai who was voted according to internet polls to be the world's most beautiful woman. It makes you think that if she was not quote on quote celebrity would she have made the cut, OF COURSE NOT, although, she does possess a beautiful face, it is a big world out there and THE FAIREST of them is yet to be discovered. 

at the end , beauty is in the eyes of the beholder

Não seja o ditado dos outros porque você é sua própria poesia"

In French, you don’t really say “I miss you.” You say “tu me manques,” which is closer to “you are missing from me.  I love that. “You are missing from me.” You are a part of me, you are essential to my being


" And I'm not talking about a $400,000 a year working Wall Street stiff flying first class and being comfortable" I am talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing"

required measurements for couture models and Rtw models
Usually like 32-23-34
(EU) 81-58.5-86.5

"   Culture is fundamental. Literature saves you. Cinema saves you.   " 

When it comes to matters of love, it’s often platonic devotion that proves the most intimate and carries the most weight in one’s life. It’s the love stories of friendship, the decades-spanning, unbreakable connection to someone that stays around as lovers come and go. 

Embrasse-moi avec tes yeux. Touche-moi avec ta bouche. Parle-moi avec des sentiments. Serre-moi avec ton corps. Regarde-moi avec des mots. Aime-moi avec des actes. Frappe-moi à coups de je t’aime.

The dress is like a woman's chambermaid- it is the closest confidante a woman can have aside from herself. A dress knows all the secrets you cannot hide anything from a dress: it sees all your flaws in technicolor or all your virtues for that matter. Yet a good dress does not reveal secrets....What JG?? yes, it is so!!!!

Love of the Babushka - Babushka Chic


more tidbits

 All of the looks I’ll post will be from Russian (and hoping Ukrainian) it girls, models, and other popular faces- who are known for having incredible style. For this particular Casual Sunday I’m looking to Irina Shayk as my inspiration- Orange crush anyone?

 What I’m loving about the look:
I love the contrast of mixing neutrals with brights, such as using orange pants with a grey top.
The sandals are delicate, and are not a pair of killer heels, meaning your feet will remain happy all day long.
The entire look doesn’t require that many accessories, the pants do enough for making a statement.
Sunglasses are a must if you need to hide some puffy or baggy eyes from the previous nights endeavours..or if you’re not in the mood for makeup.
The look is chic, and light enough to wear when the temperature hits some highs.
And the last things I love about this look is that Hermès Birkin bag, I’m not suggesting you need this!! I’m just admiring it..out loud..and why if you make so much money a taxi???? she should have a driver(smiles) her bf CR7 would cringe......

Lady Lee and the "Lion": A Fairytale Romance

lee and her hairdo

Apparently, the 'do' (her hair) has an official name: The LION. It takes one and a half hours to do. She has had it done for 10 years straight and usually does it on the same day, but if she has a morning event, she will have her hairdresser coiff her the night before and sleep on her face.

D.E.D.I.C.A.T.I.O.N ladies and gents. Learn from the Lady.
ps. did anyone notice the magnificent, ivy-like growth of diamond on her neck? And ears and hands? And SASH?

Lee Pheungboonpra1

Look at me, Lady Lee. From my sculptural shell-like hair do my chandelier diamond earrings cascade onto my emerald collar which interconnects with five diamond bangles leading you onto perfectly manicured hands adorned with the biggest starburst ring you have ever seen holding another hand with the biggest emerald you have ever seen holding my mini Thalassa blue mini Birkin. Did I mention I'm a fan of Hermès? Oh you noticed. How sweet! I would smile if my lips weren't so perfect just so.

Whomever has a Birkin has a treasure. And more so the one who has won the famous model of Hermès that was auctioned at the Parisian Artcurial for a record price of 63.800 euros.....Lady Lee would approve.
and in case you have forgotten or are a new reader to the Tidbits- here is Lady Lee with her record Birkin collection

you are it Lady Lee

Ah, Frenchwomen: so soignée, so Cest si bon, so clicky as they walk by. Everything about them—their poise, their refinement, their cool dispatch, their trim, tidy figures, their yachty scarves, their precision manners, their purposeful glances, their insinuating silences, their hair, their skin, their scent, the invisible caress of their lingerie, their avoidance of circus tattoos and purple henna—inspires marvel and envy. Although world-class cities from Rome to Barcelona, Buenos Aires to Singapore, New York to Dubai, can pride themselves on being lustrous strongholds of exalted femininity, it is the Frenchwoman—in particular the Parisian Woman—to whom homage is paid and of whom study is made.  

a little take on Japan-日本,

One word that's become quite well-known in anime- and Japan-centric circles is kawaii,which means cute, pretty, adorable, and in the context of someone who you have special feelings for, precious. It's a word that can be applied to just about anything . The ideal of kawaii is important to females in Japan, and as a rule they'll speak and act in a way that is cute and feminine. .
 Whenever a word is popular, its meaning divides and moves in new directions. Some variations on the basic kawaii meaning include ero-kawaii (girls who are cute, but with an erotic or grown-up undertone present as well), or busu-kawaii (used for girls who have unattractive faces but who are nevertheless cute overall). A girl who tries too hard to be cute -- perhaps by holding the sleeves of her coat with her fingers to make her arms seem too short so she looks like a "Super Deforned" character -- is called burikko, loosely translated as "falsely cute girl."

I have an Italian friend that she swears by this....and rich, beautiful it does not matter no one is immune.

Attivi Puri Capsule Anticellulite Caffeina + Escina di Collistar. La tecnologia che Collistar ha applicato allo skin care, con gli attivi Puri Viso è adesso dedicata al corpo.

It depends of how you want to be as a woman....but I think sometimes natural is better than exaggerated implants

no implants


The new look is becoming a trend for women in their 50′s and 60′s, calling it The New Face. Instead if tight, stretched skin, that is a dead giveaway for a facelift gone wrong – the new trend is calling for plump, full, glowing skin. The key to this technique is anunder-skin lifting of the muscles of the lower facepreserving essential facialarchitecture.” A regimen of injections of fat and collagen and whatnot supplements this work by creating the appearance of baby fat.

some of the best, some of the chic and some of the beautiful in the world!!!! 

Plus Dorés" - “the most golden”

   HH Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned 


Hey Mozahwatchers! With Queen Maxima of the Netherlands in a box at the opera, or something, looking grand in regal setting, echoing the black, draping elegance of one of my favorite Disney villains of all time... MALIFICENT! (it must be said with a flourish and the sweep of a cloak). Yay. I love you Sheikha Mozah!

I hate the word confection but I didn't want to say Viennese pastry! It is disrespectful of such a marvellous sense of proportion. taupe jacket simply belted but with a swath of just-heavy-enough fabric and a long tailored skirt finished off with patent black classic pumps? She redefines minimalism I swear. Its like... minimax. Faboulous, BANG but still simple in palette. 






I know it is not kosher.....but Italian Toast....o un sandwich the jamon y queso...o un bikini es muy delicioso....a veces pienso que no es malo comer esto...

American Apparel’s Black Nail Polish Color is Called ‘Hassid’

And American Apparel loves controversy so the conversation of how the name came about perhaps went something like this:
" I just wish there was some cute way to describe the color black.”
 “What about those funny black hats Hasidic Jews wear?”

“Perfect! We’ll call it Hassid.”

Gowns that I like

Madrinha de Casamento 

The Mona Lisaspellbinding appeal has mystified viewers for centuries. The aspect of her allure: the psychology of cognitive attraction leads us to unconsciously prefer portraits that look us in the eye.

No man is an islandso the adage goes. Man and woman were created to co-exist, cohabit and cooperate to make life more meaningful. I was never a stranger to women as I grew up having them around me.
