Weekly fashion videos: Sao Paulo fashion week

The Brazilian fashion capital again had all the bikinis and all the long-legged beauties the country is known for, but also proved its high-fashion potential.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen showed off her post-baby body on the runway of Brazilian brand Colcci.

Bundchen's comeback, which was loudly applauded by the audience, was only rivaled by the appearance of hotel heiress Paris Hilton, who modeled for local brand Triton.

The most spectacular fashion was arguably shown on designer André Lima's catwalk: dramatic evening gowns took turns with highly structured cocktail dresses.

The award for most spectacular scenery, however, goes to Lino Villaventura.
