The verdict on miracles is best left to theologians and skeptics — there is simply not enough bandwidth to settle the debate on this page. Closer to earth, but no less heavenly, is a story by François Nars featuring Thairine García that appears in the July 2014 issue of Vogue Japan. Titled “Miracle Body,” the Patti Wilson-styled story revels in the sportier side of swimwear this season. Thairine as ever looks heaven-sent and were not for the personal water craft pictured the Brazilian could well be walking on water.
