A transsexual fashion model (L?a T.) was competing for attention with Paris, Christina, Ashton and Gisele at S?o Paulo Fashion Week. But, the real stars were the delicious denim fashions – Brazilian style! Denim wasn’t exactly prominent at this fashion show (though you should check out pics from Ver?o 2011!), as innovative tailoring of outerwear and 80s-style-meets Jackson Pollock graphics competed for the most attention. But, we did find a few looks: see highlights of some of our favorite denim looks from the runway shows.

Cavalera: lots of washed, distressed and bleached effects, tailored for trips through rough weather. They have a streetwear vibe that appeals to a youthful set. View more Cavaleria Inverno 2011 at Vogue Brasil. All photos via Vogue Brasil, except as noted.
Ellus SPFW Inverno 2011: The brand goes high-tech and utilizes denim fabric that appears to conduct electricity. A bit dominatrix and moto-space cadet, Ellus produced the most exciting looks with the most interesting use of denim: shimmery denim and tartan bleed-through jeans. They chose to shoot a video for their presentation; as a result, we only see two featured models, donning all the Autumn-Winter looks. Images: Ellus.
