Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 like a come back and a combination of Fall/Winter 07/08 and Spring/Summer 2009?

How else can you explain the news that Mrs. Tom Brady plans to step in front of the camera scant weeks after the Dec. 8 delivery of her first child, son Benjamin Brady?
We haven't even had time to pick out a baby gift for the celebrity couple and already Bündchen has a new due date. This time with fashion photographer David Sims, who was hired to shoot Gisele for the Brazilian sportswear line Colcci; the supermodel has a contract with the brand.
The Boston Herald is reporting that the shoot will take place at the end of the month in Beantown, where Brady has a standing gig as NFL Quarterback for the New England Patriots (and is resident hottie).
We suspect there's already a recovery team calling the shots for Bündchen; maybe a trainer, a nutritionist, a nanny (or two). If she's too sleep deprived to stick with the program, maybe her postpartum girth will get the same Photoshop treatment her baby bump got in the London Fog ads.
And while we want to imagine her sweating out this shoot, it's likely the genetically blessed supermodel is one of those lucky few who just immediately morphs back into her pre-pregnancy self. Heidi Klum has certainly exhibited that trait.
However, don't expect Bündchen to be as busy as Klum has been since she had her most recent child. The former left a holiday message to fans after Benjamin's birth stating that she is enjoying the "happy time in my life."
And an associate of the model's told People magazine, "It wouldn't surprise me if she [Gisele] gives up most of the business." (Apparently, she's not quitting her day job just yet.)
For model news of a more serious nature, read about this beauty's shocking tragedy.

Last year saw designer Mark Fast put plus sized girls on his catwalk, V magazine is currently showcasing plus-size model Crystal Renn, the Guardian's Weekend magazine regularly pictures models aged up to 70 in its shoots and, this week, Grazia’s cover girl is 44-year-old Sadie Frost!
Now one of Germany’s best-selling women’s titles has responded to 20,000 reader complaints about super-skinny models on fashion pages by using only non-models (selected from readers who applied to be featured) in its January issue. A receptionist, a teacher and a restaurant owner have all been styled and made up to replace the usual agency fare, who, according to the editor Andreas Lebert, were sometimes so slight they needed a bit of photoshopping to beef them up.
Fashion’s favourite pantomime villain, Chanel overlord Karl Lagerfeld, infamously declared last year, 'Nobody wants to see a round woman,' and that anyone who criticises thin models is 'a fat, chip-eating mummy' (!) Meanwhile, there will surely be others who say that by using slim, young, pretty readers as models, Brigitte doesn’t go far enough. What’s to be done?
Let’s remember that fashion is a business, so if designers and editors see their products rise in popularity due to a particular choice of model, then they are likely to promote (or at least include) that vision rather than one that their customers complain about. Voilà! Exhibit A: this week’s Grazia, where an un-retouched Sadie Frost bares everything! And she’s (albeit a very glam) working mum of four.
Just spare a thought for those poor professional models, though. They have been chosen for their slim shape – they didn’t ask for the industry to be this way. Now what will happen? Will they all have to move in with Karl at the Chanel mansion when they can no longer afford to pay the rent? [independent]

LINDSAY LOHAN has run into yet more criticism following her artistic advisor debut at the house of Emanuel Ungaro - this time from Mr Emanuel Ungaro, the original designer himself.
According to INDEPENDENT.CO.UK, Ungaro - who retired from the label in 2004 - this week told local press at an international film festival in Estoril, near Lisbon, that the actress' "collaboration was a disaster".
"I am furious but I can't do anything about it," the designer said, noting that he feared the fashion house was "in the process of losing its soul".
"This happens to a lot of designers, we were the creators and patrons, responsible for the creation and destiny of our houses. But when we gave up our houses, we gave up our soul," he added.
Just last month Giambattista Valli, former director at Ungaro, confessed how he, too, was unimpressed with Lohan's efforts. He told The Daily: "An actress ought to be an actress, and a fashion designer ought to be a fashion designer. These are their own professions, so everybody ought to concentrate on one thing. I chose, in my life, to be a fashion designer."
Meanwhile, Lohan seems unfazed - having told Sunday Times: "Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I didn't expect everyone to be completely loving the collection."

ADA ZANDITON, Christopher Raeburn, Goodone, Minna, Nina Dolcetti and The North Circular have been selected as the designers to benefit from the British Fashion Council's new Eco Fashion Mentor Programme.
With the aim to increase opportunities for ethical designers in the mainstream fashion market, the initiative is supported by the London Development Agency. Three industry mentors - brand consultants Susanne Tide-Frater, Yasmin Sewell and buying consultant Bev Malik - will offer advice and support, play an active role with the brands' development and help edit the designers' displays at London Fashion Week.
"I am delighted to contribute to delivering a 360-degree support to estethica's mentoring scheme in its aim to involve ethical fashion stars in London," says Malik.
Founded four years ago by the British Fashion Council, estethica works to showcase the work of designers committed to working eco-sustainably and all designers who showcase have to adhere to at least one of the principles of fair trade, organic or recycling practise
"Introducing this expert mentoring scheme is very important to the British Fashion Council and we strongly believe that it will assist these businesses to strengthen their collections to compete in the mainstream," says Caroline Rush, joint chief executive of the British Fashion Council.
