Gisele On Cover Of First Harper’s Bazaar Brazil Issue, Shot By Terry Richardson

The first part of this story isn’t all that shocking, right? You’re Harper’s Bazaar, and you’re launching in Brazil, and there happen to be tons of amazingly gorgeous models from your country, but one of them is more amazing and more gorgeous (by some accounts) than all the rest, and so you put her on your cover.

Not exactly rocket science.

What is a bit confusing, though, is why you have said supermodel photographed by some creepy dude who likes to get his schlong out. Because, honestly, what would have happened if Terry Richardson, who shot Gisele Bundchen for the cover, perved out on the Brazilian glamazon? I mean, maybe it would have been awesome, because then he would have gotten his scrawny ass kicked by this guy, and while violence isn’t something I’m usually a fan of, I kind of feel like for Richardson, that would be a long time coming.

    This is a surprisingly tasteful photograph, considering.

    Yes, the Brasilian women are quite beautiful. But they are also very strong, for it is a male dominated culture. So I’m sure she can push back, by herself, if the situation arrived. Gisele’s look is very Santa Catrina (the name of one of Brasil’s States, where I believe she’s originally from).

    why on earth would they not go for Gisele for their debut issue is the question/.lol. Um putting some lesser known Brazilian model won’t give the new mag the publicity they need. Gisele however is a media darling. Everything she says/does is publicized. This was a great business decision on their behalf.
