The fourth picture is so beautiful, full of color and movement….And I love all the bracelets in the third womanÂ´s arms, and te way she mixes neutral pale colors is very elegant.
Someone in another post mentioned Santa Tereza. It really is a very beatiful and unique neighbourhood, usually compared to ParisÂ´Montmartre. Its feels kinda like going back in time. It has a very romantic, bucolic and european atmosphere, and probably the most beautiful architecture in the city.
If youÂ´re particularly interested in architecture, you should go to the Museum of Modern Art (MAM), in Aterro do Flamengo. The building is a landmark and the gardens are beautiful (not to mention the breathtaking view to the sugar loaf). While in Flamengo, take your time to see the French-Style buildings by the beach, facing the Sugar Loaf. Instituto Moreira Salles (gavea) is another architectural landmark, and it has a charming cafe by the pleasant garden.
If you want some seafood, Satyricon and Margutta are the places to go. Satyricon is a traditional international celebrity spot. Madonna, Sting and Baryshnikov are all longtime fans, and the food is to die for.
Have lunch in Celeiro (Dias Ferreira) at least once. Its located ate one of the cityÂ´s most charming streets, a street you cant miss. The restaurant is overpriced, overhyped, always packed and its a local celebrity spot, but the organic food is simply divine, and its a traditional meeting place for Leblon locals and fashionable people.
Try as many juices as you can in any of the many juice spots spread all around the city. Strawberry, Passion Fruit, Mango, Apple, you name it. They are all delicious. Healthy, colorful, refreshing.
Dont leave without trying some mate, a typical drink. Th colder, the better.
If youÂ´re going to Lapa searching for some real samba, Estrela da Lapa and Rio Scenarium are two good options.
As someone mentioned before, sunday morning by the beach sidewalk might be a cliche, but its a must do. Its a great oportunity to see a very tipical sunday morning in Rio.YouÂ´ll see locals running, exercizing, working out, walking the dog, just passing by… If youÂ´re staying in Arpoador, wear some confortable shoes and walk all the way to LeblonÂ´s very end (Posto 12) and back. While you do it, youÂ´ll pass by some of the most interesting beach spots, such as CoqueirĂŁo and Posto 9, both in Ipanema, and Leblon in front of Carlos Gois Street.
In case youÂ´re having dinner in Carlota, try the goiaba soufle with catupiry cheese. It will bring happy tears to your eyes. The same goes for QuadrifoglioÂ´s white chocolate mousse with passion fruit sauce.
oh, you missed a lot of amazing night looks of vrey cool people in teh party of the week yesterday (valentino, delal and lot of style brasilians, beautiful people), try go to this partyes, to show we are not only biquinis and runaways…
There is a chance that I am being really annoying, but I remembered something that may help me convince you to come to SĂŁo Paulo: check the work of Renata Chebel. She makes photos of SĂŁo Paulo night scene and the stylish crowd in it. You can find some os her pics in: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sp00/
What beautiful pictures. I love when great looking items of clothing mesh with a person’s lifestyle. Its like they help them live that lifestyle – the vibrant pink dress with a vibrant smile, the cool white tiered dress with a relaxed cool expression. They just work so well together!
The girl in pink looks so natural and she is very pretty! The first lady in white looks relaxed but also chic, she combines the outfit very well and wear it with attitude. When I see the man I long for summer and lazy days on the beach! The white pants look so comfortable and the bag makes the outfit a little more exiting. These pictures are wonderfully and have a great atmosphere.
I don' think people are realising that this was a runway show …
Natalia & the other women being guests … The blonde guy is male model Alex Schultz …. Brazilian but usually found in NYC & Europe … Was completely nude in the most recent Tom Ford campaign … So people, he is not just some random guy walking along the beachfront of Rio! lol
I guess what I love is your ability to get the shot. I keep trying to guess if they pose, if you pose them or if some are just candid! I remember taking this shot of a couple on the ferry from Venice to Murano. I of course wanted it to be candid. The picture I got is of the husband/boyfriend staring at me like he’s going to chew my head off. It cured me of trying to take candid photos. Your work is truly remarkable. Thanks. Paul
love the 2nd & 3rd photos. I think white always brings out the character but not everybody can wear white is another issue. anyway, if one can carries it with the right attitute and accesories; tht will def turn the heads! A.I.Lastar
This is Claro Rio Summer , a small fashion week in Rio, so we are full of models here..hot! Valentino is here too, but just to hang out with his jet setters friends…:)…this look of Natalia is from Carlos Miele , brazilian designer who use to be also in ny fashion week.
I love the fifth/white dress. Those tiers, and some sort of trim/edging adds dimension to the powdery white number. This color white reminds me of the walls painted decades ago but got sun bleached and weathered viewed in the cool shade. Epitome of chic!
These are all very simple and effortlessly beautiful. I will say that I am glad to see them; my experience of Brazilian fashion was not this way at all. I was there during winter, and though not at all cold, I was decidedly discouraged by the number of unfortunately overdressed and overdone women and the lack of the beautiful clothes I had envisioned.
Definitely use the architecture as inspiration- from the Deco through the Modern heyday, Brazil’s urban areas have phenomenal building and landscaping forms that I would love to see pop up here!
oooh, good pics, amazing styles, huh?! absolutely great to know that you are at my country. brazilian people are beautiful with one of the most beautiful cultures :) hope you take some pictures of paulistas girls (from SĂŁo Paulo) (a tip: in Paulista avenue you can find all kinds of styles, peoples, everything!) have a good time here!
These scantily clad, off-the-shoulder people look both amazing and totally alien. We put the clocks back not long ago, so it’s officially winter in London – although it’s been unofficially winter for most of the year. They remind me that a fashion statement can be as much about what you don’t wear as it can be about what you do…Is hot the new cool?
