The crude marriage rate is the number of marriages per 1,000 of a given geographical region during a given year. This fancy number makes its way into myriad United Nations studies, the drowsy likes of which are the opposite of joyous occasions they quantify. Although Brazil has a relatively low marriage rate of 6.6 (USA = 31), it is no less enthusiastic about the institution and this month Vogue Brasil has published a special Noiva (Bride) edition that boasts three separate covers featuring Brazilian stunnahs Cris Herrmann, Thairine García, and Fernanda Liz. With bridal season in full swing, these special edition covers could not have come at a better time. Should the United Nations Population Division need to inject a dash of bridal elegance to its dusty reports, then it could do worse than go with the covers of Cris, Thairine, and Fernanda.
