The 2009 São Paulo Fashion Week is about to start, and the big news is that Raquel Zimmerman - one of Brazil's top models - will strut the catwalk exclusively for the Rio brand Animale, on January 21.
Raquel is riding a wave of popularity with the world's top designers: she recently shot many high-profile campaigns, such as Marc Jacobs, with photos by Juergen Teller; Fendi, with photos by Karl Lagerfeld; Hugo Boss, with photos by Mario Sorrenti; De Beers Forever Mark, with photos by Mikael Jansson; Oscar de La Renta, with photos by Craig McDean and Sisheido with photos by Nick Knight.
Raquel has also just shot with Mario Testino in a New York studio, but that work is still being kept under wraps. .
Last but not least, she's the only Brazilian on Vogue America's 2008 best-dressed list.
