>> Kate Moss's nude cover for Vogue Brazil's 36th anniversary May 2011 issue made the rounds a couple of weeks ago, but now the rest of her steamy, almost-60-page-strong spread for the magazine, shot by Mario Testino, has also surfaced. A few highlights, in the gallery.
>> In February, Kate Moss spent five days in both Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo with Mario Testino, shooting for Vogue Brazil's hefty 36th anniversary edition. "We worked the whole time," she told Vogue UK right after the trip. "We shot 60 pages for the magazine. It was a lot. I had Lila with me and I thought it would be more of a holiday, Mario usually finishes quite early, but not this time."
Testino captured her opposite Brazilian symbols of his choice — including architect Oscar Niemeyer, soccer star Pele, actors Rodrigo Santoro and Marcio Garcia, and model Mayana Moura. One location of choice was Rio's Copacabana Palace, where Testino had Moss posing in the hotel's spa and kitchen during working hours. The 508-page edition, which features Moss nude on the cover, hits newsstands May 2.
Gisele Bundchen struck a sultry pose in a black corset for the November issue of Vogue Brazil, which is dedicated to her 15th anniversary in the modeling industry. To commemorate the occasion, Gisele posed for two spreads in the magazine, shot by photographers Gui Paganini and Jacques Dequer, and exclusively talked about her beauty products and family life. Gisele was just at Paris Fashion Week celebrating a different milestone by partying late into the night with Kate Moss to honor Vogue Paris's 90th year. She's also marking big achievements at home, as her husband, Tom Brady, became the youngest NFL quarterback to earn 100 wins.

She's a model, she's a mom, she can tone it up, she can tone it down. And in Vogue Brazil's July issue, Alessandra tones it way up. In nothing but a sweater and boy shorts, or in a tank dress, she's insanely desirable. Here she is on the cover — in a cool cutout dress; a modern Morticia Addams. You know you want to see what's inside . . .
>> Roberto Cavalli is the latest designer to pick up photography, but Alber Elbaz got involved with magazines in a different way. Elbaz conceived the December 2009 cover of Vogue Brazil, featuring Madisyn Ritland and photographed by Stephane Gallois, as well as an editorial inside, "The Fabulous World of Alber Elbaz" with Ritland and Elsa Sylvan. He even makes an appearance in the last shot, peeking out under a floral hat.
