Aline Ascending

One's Aline Weber, another comeback story of the fall 2008 season, but possibly the largest one thus far! Aline has been in the business since 2005 but it is this season that the Brazilian bombshell has exploded.

Like most comebacks, Aline disappeared for some time before slowly re surging in Brazil. The classic, statuesque beauty began appearing near monthly in Vogue Brazil before seriously rocking Sao Paulo Fashion Week. But once One found her and she hit NY, that's when the serious bookings began pouring in.

Aline walked for Proenza Schouler, Narciso Rodriquez, Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein in New York and Alberta Ferretti, Burberry and Pucci in Milan. The ball did not stop rolling there as Aline walked Maison Martin Margiela yesterday in Paris.
Despite all of that show success, Aline's major moment came this morning when she opened the breathtaking Fall 2008 Balenciaga show. This is one of the few girls who can go from Balenciaga and absolutely land a major VS contract. I may be eating my words in years to come, but does anyone else see a young Gisele? Contract or not, Aline is bound to become one of those rare Fashion Chameleons that we are all so fond of. You can count on Aline's ascension to continue into spring 2009, we've got a star on our hands people...
