Let me introduce you to the other Gizele. Gizele Oliveira. Lookbook.nu superstar, poprock and sprinkle fucks; shows up at Milan Fashion Week and gets snapped on the iconic tram tracks. Instant fame – as in 66.9K followers on Instagram (after the mass exodus). She’s also got a blog: Gizele a Go-Go that is written in mostly Portuguese but oftentimes she translates to english a la Ferragni for us devout anglophiles. Or should I say Los Angelophiles?
Even though her style is much a departure from my own – would I wear Dr. Marten’s with big silk ribbon shoelaces and star spangled tights? Probably not. Her life is totally jet-set, from Rio to NYC. From Yin-Yang socks to circle frames to top buns and Triangl bikini butts, I sometimes wonder why I bother following anyone taller than my own 5 foot 3 inches. But Gizele is totally worth the self-loathing. And in the end, might help bring out the hippie inside all of us, even the shorter version.
However, caveat emptor, there is no respite from those cheekbones.
