GISELE & TOM BRADY TO WED THIS WEEKEND IN COSTA RICA
The secrets out…..Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen plan to wed in front of family and friends near her house in Costa Rica this weekend. This weekends festivities will follow the intimate nuptials on February 26 in a Santa Monica, Calif., church which featured Brady’s 1½-year-old-son and only a few guests. In fact, Gisele changed out of her wedding gown and into jeans gown before attending an intimate celebratory dinner that evening.
Thursday’s night rehearsal dinner gave us an idea of what type of guest list to except from the A-List nuptials. In addition to friends and family, Brady’s New England Patriots teammates and Bündchen’s modeling-world pals will be in attendance. No word on if she’ll be wearing another fabulous creation by Dolce & Gabanna on her big day.
Bundchen has come under heavy fire recently from Tom Brady ex (and baby momma), Bridget Moynahan, over remarks she made in Vanity Fair regarding her step-son John. Gisele told the magazine, “I understand that he has a mom, and I respect that, but to me it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child. I feel it is, 100 percent.” Team Moynahan fired back a response questioning Bundchen’s decision to discuss the toddler in the press, something she felt a mother wouldn’t do. It h also been reported that Moynahan was upset that Brady failed to mention his evening nuptials when he picked up their son on February 26.
FERN MALLIS IS THE NEW TIM GUNN
People outside the fashion world might not know her by name, but they know her work. That’s because Fern Mallis, Senior Vice President of IMG, is credited with creating New York “Fashion Week”. Mallis has always been behind the scenes, but will soon be thrust into the limelight with Bravo TV’s latest project, The Fashion Show. Since Bravo’s lawsuit with Project Runway recently ended with the show moving to Lifetime Television, a major void had to be filled over at Bravo in the wake of huge success with Project Runway.
The Fashion Showwill feature fifteen professional designers who will compete in a fashion creative competition for a chance to have their designs sold in the retail market and win a $125,000 prize. Joining Fern Mallis as judges are Designer Isaac Mizrahi as well as four-time Grammy Award-winning performer Kelly Rowland.
The Fashion Show premieres on Bravo on Thursday, May 7, 2009 at 10 p.m. ET. Fifteen professional designers will compete in this fashion creative competition series for a chance to have their designs sold in the retail market and win a $125,000 prize.
