For those of you who don’t know anything about 27-year-old, Brazilian-flavored Jeísa, here’s more juice:
Chiminazzo was born to parents Ernani and Ivone of Italian and German descent. She grew up in Muçum, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. She has two sisters, Grace (6 years older) and Jéssica (5 years younger). She was discovered in 1998 at the age of 13 by a Brazilian actor who recommended her to a modeling agency.
A year after first appearing on the covers of local magazines, Chiminazzo signed with IMG Models in New York and appeared in Italian editions of Elle and Marie Claire soon after. During her first few years as an international model, she appeared in several fashion campaigns, for designers such as Emanuel Ungaro and Jill Stuart, for which she was photographed by Ellen von Unwerth. In July 2005, Chiminazzo made a breakthrough with a Paris Vogue cover with Isabeli Fontana, photographed by Mario Testino. [Read more]
Just like the 15 other premieres over the past few days, “Twilight – Breaking Dawn 2” held a fashionable screening at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in lower Manhattan. The event was hosted by The Hollywood Reporter & Samsung Galaxy in conjunction with The Cinema Society, so it’s nice to see the film is raking in some cash from other avenues besides just selling tickets at the box-office. The numbers haven’t come in yet, but the ‘Twilight’ finale will probably set a few records before it’s all over. Yay for all the producers who just got a little bit richer. Bastards.
So, did anybody catch the movie last night or what? In the name of creating useless filler, we’re obligated to ask…

We promise, this is the last post from the event.
For those of you who don’t have much to do this weekend, why not hit up the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival going down in lower Manhattan? The festival kicked off a couple days ago and runs through May 1st. More info here.
Last night Rachel Bilson & Karl Lagerfeld were on hand to unveil their short film inspired by Magnum Ice Cream (I’m craving one as I write this). The ad was directed by the multi-talented Karl Lagerfeld, so check it out down below:
Here are a few other hottable attendees from last night’s event:
