Carlos Miele loves his homeland Brazil so much — can you blame him? — he took his Spring '09 ad campaign, shot by Michael Roberts, on location there. Ipanema Beach and the Dois Irmãos Mountain in Rio de Janeiro served as the most exotic backdrop to the vibrant, silky gowns. "I was inspired by the dance between the woman’s body and Rio’s nature," the designer said. The models Miele chose to capture the essence of Brazil are natives Aline Webber and Emanuela de Paula. The contrast between their skin and hair makes for a magical partnership. And the ethereal dresses? I can't stop drooling. Cue the bossa nova music and it's golden.
