While most celebrities only tweeted “thoughts and prayers” to the victims of Hurricane Sandy, Brazilian model/actress/reality thing Nana Gouvêa actually got off of her ass and did something to help the people of Manhattan. Nana and her husband moved from Brazil to NYC, because the international fashion world needed an international supermodel like her. The morning after the hurricane hit, Nana put the skills she learned at São Paulo’s Phoebe Price School Of Posing With Inanimate Objects to good use by starring in her own “Fame Whore Amongst the Destruction” photo shoot. The people around her were grateful, because for a second they stopped worrying about not having fucking electricity so they could roll an eye at her.
You might see a car that was destroyed by a falling tree, but Nana sees a posing playground. You might see destruction and ruined lives, but Nana sees the perfect backdrop for an American Apparel photo shoot. Nana really does have a gift, because notice how her dead eyes match the eery emptiness of the city. The lights aren’t only off in lower Manhattan, they’re off in Nana’s head too.
Nana has already been declared a hero of Hurricane Sandy and Mayor Bloomberg will give her the key to the city (aka deportation papers) at a special ceremony next week. Nana’s photo shoot has since gone viral and someone started a priceless Tumblr devoted to her posing in the middle of other disasters.
And that booming sound you hear is Tyra Banks banging her infinityhead against the wall, because she’s mad at herself for not coming up with this shit. Once Tyra gets over that, I’m sure she’ll hire Nana to be the new creative director on America’s Next Top Model.
