That’s beautiful. The combination of the warm reds, oranges and yellows with the splash of green leaves and feathers at the bottom and top just is dazzling. And there’s parrots! Is this just sitting out in a park in Rio? It looks to delicate (though I imagine someone wearing it would be very fierce looking indeed) to just be sitting outside.
aaaahhhhhh…this brought to mind wonderful memories of carnaval, samba…and some of the reasons as to why I LOVE this country so much (coming from a mexican-american..); it has the most beautiful music in the world (I think), the greatest-looking people I've ever seen together and out-of-this-world creativity & resilience !! Thanks so much for the pics!! beijos
anonymous at 11:48, it’s a shame you feel that way. You are clearly missing something. I live in Rio, and I can tell you there is A LOT of substance here, and “statements” everywhere. People express themselves incredibly through art and their personal style, (which I might add, is often quite unique- I’m sure, and hope, that the sart will post some more “real street style”, not just people on the street near the Claro Fashion Week events). People offer a lot, even if they are not all the elite fashionistas y of in other cities.
Oh, and outside of the beach setting, people are not walking around half naked, as you imply. As Brazilian, you should know that.
I agree with m. I guess you should open your eyes to our culture. We are more than swim suits ans havaianas. Our style is revigorating, stunning, full of energy and fire. It’s fierse! haha And just because we don’t wear many clothes as european people it doesn’t mean we can’t show style. I bet sart can show you this.
aweesome photos and the costume capts the idea of a happy and vibrating carnaval;
this is not the real carnival in Rio – please, I am Brazillian, I know. This is just what is shown, and works for the parade, but not on the streets where people wear shorts, flipflops and spaguetti strings blouses.
