    Very elegant lady, looks like an older Julia Roberts.

    She was on your post last week Thursday where it appears she was being interviewed while on the beach, she was wearing a blue floral sundress while seated next to a tan/brown woven tote.

    Great shot!!

    Guess I’d better go to the National Geographic website to see photos of the ‘real’ Brasilians. :(

    You seem to have times of your life in Brazil;) Love the way you don’t take Brazilian shots too seriously – it adds plasticity and looks relaxed.

    She is beautiful, but there is clearly an excess of chest going on there

    redshoes and anon@12:46 – this really isn’t about photographs from Utah, you know. a cami? you think she’s going to a school ice-cream social in the mid-west in that dress?

    That dress makes her appear a bit ‘droopy’ if you know what I mean…

    I just left a comment that she is just lovely & reminds of Lauren Hutton… I then read the comments & what do you know? I'm not the only one. Elegant & classy.

    Maybe the dress is a bit too revealing,although she can manage it well.

    Beautiful dress. Perfection.

    She doesn’t need a cami.

    I actually really like this…a lot of the comments are spot on. Very sophisticated without looking old or cliche, very modern.

    The necklace and structure of the shoulders and breast portions of the torso are also romantic. (Sorry, my fashion vocabulary isn’t very broad)

    The cut of this dress, and the way she wears it, are perfect. There’s a lesson here for those of us inclined to wear a camisole or slip with a neckline like this: foregoing them lets the clean line of the dress shine through and — at least on her! — looks elegant. Stephanie

    This is Andrea Dellal, mother of Charlotte and Alice. She was a great model of her day.

    I love this dress, timeless, feminine and subtlely sexy.
    A cami? oh please! only in a america where body shame and covering it up are the order of the day.

    this woman has such lovely proportions, and the pose is beautiful. This may be my favorite shot of the wonderful photos from Brazil, where it is clear that people can dress for air and light that is like a caress on the skin.
