Pulsating with real energy, Brazil is made of all things exotic, fun and seductive. Following its enticing rhythms, Brazilian beauty Samira Carvalho switches from channeling Josephine Baker’s art deco style, to mirroring the striking tribal queen in the fascinating black and white editorial photographed by Leandro Ramos. Bold and ready to make one statement after another, her garments are envisioned to tell stories.
And with “The Great Gatsby” carrying out such tremendous influence over the 1920s fashion revival, it’s hard not to establish a connection between Samira’s shimmery fringed dresses and the roaring decade. The attitude, the grace, the movements they’re all there, just veiled in a different light, reflecting their charm among the selection of flared silhouettes, heavy embellishments, metallic brocades and lace accents.
Enriching Pamella Perin’s flawless styling, Iara Iguti (www.iaraiguti.com) picked up the idea of luxury, enhancing Samira’s exotic features with soft up-do’s and glimmery make-up.
