The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Kanye West’s Nike Air Yeezy 2 Already on Ebay, Gisele Bundchen on the Search For Brazil’s Next Top Favela Model, and Naomi Campbell for Antidote Magazine

• People are already lining up across the nation to get their hands on the supremely limited edition Nike Air Yeezy 2’s. Said a DTLR (that’s an urban retail store, in case you didn’t know) employee: “We don’t want them to line up!” There are so few sneakers available, the store is raffling off the privilege chance to purchase them in the first place! If it’s anything Kanye likes it’s supreme exclusivity, so I’m sure the overlord is pleased. (WWD)

• Yeezy might not be so pleased, however, to hear that his sneakers are already on E-bay, selling for $2,000- $7,000. But get out your tissues, folks, because some poor fool bid $89,000 for a pair of the coveted kicks. And Jesus wept. (Fashionista)

Naomi Campbell would like to remind you that she has not aged a day in her newest spread for Antidote Magazine. (Fashion Fiend)

• Rumor has it that Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will attend the London Olympic’s closing ceremonies, modeling looks from Britain’s most celebrated designers like Vivienne Westwood and Sarah Burton for McQueen. (ELLE)

Gisele Bundchen is searching for Brazil’s next crop of models in the country’s most underprivileged areas. The Top CUFA (Central Única das Favelas, or Central Union of Slums) will search the hood high and low for 27 of the most caucasian-looking brown girls (come on, you know it’s bound to happen), to crown one lucky winner Top CUFA. The winner will receive a year-long modeling contract, a spokesmodeling gig with Pantene, a year of hair products from the brand, and, probably the *most* valuable of them all, the crown Gisele wore to her first Carnival.
