Brazilian actress Giselle Itie for “GO BRAZIL” July 2014 issue of Bello Mag

Ah Giselle! Are all Brazilian girls named Giselle this gorgeous? And she’s just so sweet and warm and caring and fun… I became an instant fan! I speak not only for myself, but also for my team when I say “what a fantastic shoot!”. It was an all girl team, and we had a fun girl day together!

Below is Giselle Itie’s feature in the July 2014 “Go Brazil” issue of Bello mag. Doesn’t she look amazing?

Actress Morena Baccarin for Bello Mag “GO BRAZIL” July 2014 cover – ART DIRECTING

Meeting and working with a fellow Brazilian girl in the US… so flipping cool! By far one of the coolest and most exhilarating experiences in my career (up till now, at least)! Plus Morena is just incredible!

I made sure to have plenty of yummy Brazilian goodies for us to snack on including “Brigadeiro” and Guarana, which was a huge success, even amongst my lovely American team/friends. The sugar load made everyone extra happy on that set!

Thank you yet again to my friend and incredibly talented boss, Alek Tomovic for the opportunity to Art Direct this shoot for him. Below is Morena Baccarin‘s covers (yes… 2 beautiful covers this month!) and her cover story.

Bello Brazil July 2014 issue

I am so beyond proud of this issue. I could go on and on about it! Bello Mag‘s very first Brazil issue is out and I cannot wait for everyone to see it.:)

Back in January, I was invited to become Creative Director Latin America for Bello Mag. So incredibly thankful and excited to join such incredible team of talented individuals.

I wanted to first share a brief introduction letter released in this issue of the mag, as well as a few of the articles I was in charge of gathering. These were so beautifully written and there is so much love and pride in them. Enjoy!
