    If that button pops (and I believe it will, any time now…), it’s going to take somebody’s eye out! The backdrop is fabulous but I think she looks stiff and awkward, as opposed to every other Rio shot we’ve seen. So far they all seem so liquid and flowing they could practically drip off the page!It’s good though I supposed, since now I actually believe that they actually may be human and not otherworldly.

    she’s awesome

    but hey sart? as a girl with short legs and a long torso, can you start showing more “real” people pulling off great styles that work for more bodies? because i mean… yeaa.. of course this girl looks great.. but how can anyone be inspired by that who isn’t a brasilian model!?

    GREAT shot, but I’m not diggin’ the digs. Just TOO MUCH sex, nothing subtle. Great shoes, though. wish she had a simple tank on top instead.

    This is a beautiful photograph, however, I admit that I do hate what she is wearing. Both her shoes and her clothing are very tacky.

    Yeah…not really a fan of the outfit or the shoes..

    ..the only thing I like is the cut of the shorts…reminiscent of an early 20th century bathing suit..but I can’t even tell if that’s how the short is made from this angle..

    I live in rio and yes, she is gorgeous, but she is a model in a fashion event in Rio this weekend, she isn’t a “normal” people…..but, I have to say that if you see the people in the streets or beaches in the city, you could see beautiful images too…..

    This looks like one of those elaborately staged ad photos from the 1940′s or 50′s- painted backdrop, papier-mache wall, fan blowing, etc.-amazing! She fits right in with the look, too.

    A nice looking woman in very nice clothes. I like that her hair color,the belt and shoes all match. Maybe the expression on her face could be happier.

    There is something about her hair and face that I do not like, but what really takes everything is that scene. Her outfit is pretty cool too. Cultural and society influenced style, its admirable.

    November 10, 2008 at 11:42 am

    maybe this style is not the best, but as brazilian i hace to say also is not also about sex. Rio is a city with sea, something like LA…People here have a more relaxed style comparing with SP. Here they are more healthy, worried with body, shorter clothes and sometimes less worried with fashion. (this is a old discussion rio x sao paulo).
    But is very normal somebody in Rio walk like this girl or with havaianas or t-shirt and bermudas to man…is just a information..
    and sartorialist…we still waiting more pics…

    How warm it must be there! I often wonder what you do about winter pictures. Coats make fashion a wee bit more challenging. I see a method now: go to a warmer clime!

    i dont thikn she is too modelish, sexy or tacky at all. Rio is a hot place, so shorts and sleeveless is understandable. the fact that she has feminine body parts? that’s not her fault! she is buttoned up quite well. the belt and shoes are necessary and easy accessories to spice up teh jump suit.

    she is the storm.

    AMAZING. ASIDE FROM THE SUBJECT, SCOTT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC SKILLS ARE REALLY GROWING! EVERY ONE IS TRYING TO TEAR THIS PHOTO APART, SO WHAT HER HANDS AREN’T PERFECTLY POSITIONED, THIS PHOTO ISN’T GOING TO APPEAR ON THE PAGES OF VOGUE FOR A FASHION SPREAD. IT’S REALLY A CANDID PICTURE. IT WOULD LOOK UN NATURAL IF SHE WAS TRYING TO LOOK TOO PERFECT. HOW CALM WOULD YOU BE BEFORE A STORM, SHE’S PROBABLY TRYING TO GET THE PIC OVER WITH SO SHE WONT GET WET OR STEADYING HERSELF B/C THE WIND IS BLOWING, AS YOU CAN TELL BY THE FLOW OF HER HAIR.

    The outfit is cute, I love the shoes, and she is certainly beautiful – but I must admit there is something about the way she’s holding her head that does not seem natural to me. Then again, there’s nothing natural about a man approaching you and asking to take your picture – she was probably just a little unsure of what to do. But the background is just so gorgeous. The color composition of this photo is stunning, with all the white contrasting against her skin. It seems like she anchors the sky to the ground.

    I love the in your face sexuality of Brasilian fashion. it makes Italy look tame by comparison.

    That stated, I am not sure I could survive there. It’s sensory overload even for this Italian resident who is used to strong expressions of beauty day to day.

    What a beaty. Still waiting for the classic half dark rio girl in half long colourfull dress. Common’ Sar. You’ve to find them. No women more beautifull and stylish than them. Walk around on Ipanema boulevard or Lapa. Sorry, it’s your work. Just do your thing.

    Ruffly belt + ruffly bodice = too much ruffle. I think it's entirely tacky, also given the dark gold jewelry, too small blouse, & forced pose. The spiky sandals are also too much in my opinion, but Rio style is commonly tight shorts + high heels.
