Oi Fashion Rocks Brazil

Fashion Rocks was held in Brazil for the first time this year.

The event featured four international fashion designers, including Marc Jacobs, Versace, Givenchy, and Calvin Klein with live performances from Mariah Carey, Estelle, P.Diddy, Grace Jones and Ciara.

The line-up also featured four national fashion designers – Lenny, Andre Lima, Alexandre Herchcovith and Lino Vilaventura paired with four performers including Lulu Santos, Daniela Mercury, Wanessa and Ja Rule.

Donatella Versace wore 2 gowns from her recent Spring 2010 collection.

The first was a lilac strapless gown which she had modified by removing the white details on the bodice, and lowering the central split.

This colour is fabulous on her.

The second was an asymmetrical angelic white gown with silver triangle shaped embellishments.

Again the split was lowered and the cut-out detail on the side of the gown on the runway, doesn’t appear on Donatella’s gown.

This was my favourite gown of the two.

Fernanda Lima hosted the show looking amazing wearing the same red Versace Fall 2009 gown Blake Lively wore to the Emmy’s.

She looked equally, if not more spectacular in this jaw-dropping gown.

Isabeli Fontana wowed wearing a canary yellow Atelier Versace Fall 2007 halter gown.

I thought the only model who could provide this kind of jaw-dropping moment was Gisele Bundchen.

She’s back.

After months of quite boring black ensembles, Estelle was back to her colourful best wearing a very interesting futuristic Manish Arora Fall 2009 dress of yellow, orange, red maroon and black.

The textured dress was paired with a grey Fendi clutch and Christian Louboutin Calypso heels as worn by Blake Lively last week.

Fernanda Motta and Alessandra Ambrosio arrived at this event together.

Fernanda wore a black satin Versace Fall 2009 wrap dress, which is the same dress we saw on Janet Jackson recently, whilst Alessandra showed off her enviable figure in a taupe halter neck gown embellished with precious stones.

Ciara confirmed via her twitter page that she is going to be Riccardo Tisci new muse for Givenchy, so it was no surprised to see her decked out in a Givenchy Spring 2009 ensemble.

Her embellished cold-shoulder top was paired with a leather pocketed mini skirt to show-off those toned legs.

    Any comments on Mariah Carey’s look? Her dress was by D&G right ?

    • Fashion Critic October 26, 2009 at 15:39 #

      haven’t seen any pictures of Mariah.

    Love Donatella in the white also.

    Ciara being Riccardos “muze” as she calls it, is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard, she’s obviously delusional and thinks that performing at fashion rocks Brazil for Givenchy equates to being his muse. I don’t think so, Nice top though.
    But what is going on with Isabeli’s hair, are those dreadlocks?

    I don’t mind Ciara, but Riccardo Tisci’s new muse?!

    Estelle’s dress is by an Indian designer – Manish Arora. http://www.highheelconfidential.com/estelle-in-manish-arora-oi-fashion-rocks-brazil/

      Hey Tina, thanks so much for the heads up.

      This is a great rocket dress for an expressive artist. The Dorothy shoes make it seem Estelle could take flight.

  6. Alexandra October 26, 2009 at 16:09 #

    Oh no no no! Another pair of Calypso heels and worn with such fabulousity! I die.

    I’m telling you, it’s gonna be another “it” shoe :)

      You are so right.

    Donatella FOREVER! Isn’t she the most fashion of the night??

  8. Leo October 26, 2009 at 16:59 #

    I loved Estelle. Such an unsual choice but she is one of the few that could make that work.

    Brazilian tv host Fernanda Lima also rocked two beautiful Versace gowns at the event.

      Thanks for the pictures.

      I had to delete the links because imagehaven.net have porn ads.

    Isabeli has a boyfriend (brazilian singer) who has a hair like that…. His name is Marcelo Falcao.
    She looks great in that dress, but I hate the hair.
    What a girl won’t do for love…

  17. Ashburn Eng October 27, 2009 at 03:45 #

    estelle looks amazing!

  18. Lee October 27, 2009 at 07:33 #
