There’s not just sport going on this summer in Rio – there’s a real party atmosphere to accompany it. The opening ceremony showed off what the country does well and touched on environmental issues like global warming and rising sea levels. What I enjoyed was that the country’s most stylish models played a key part of it.
Adriana Lima carried the symbolised torch, Alessandro Ambrosio covered it on NBC and Gisele Bundchen looked gorgeous as she played a role in the televised ceremony. Brazilian models always seem to look incredible – we can learn a lot from them. Let’s have a look at the hottest five Brazilian models and the roles some of them have played in the games for some inspiration:
Gisele looked fabulous in a silver maxi dress during the opening ceremony. She strutted down the catwalk putting her years of experience to good use. However, even if you have no model training, you still walk tall when you know you look fabulous and maxi dresses always help with that as they’re both formal and flattering.
Adriana was one of the torch bearers and she looked pretty in her sports kit, but even better in a long sleeve maxi dress at a party afterwards. I like a long sleeve maxi dress because it adds a bit of drama to a dress.
Alessandra shows that even models have to exercise to stay in shape – you can tell she does a lot of running as she’s light on her feet. I love her red trainers!
Ana Beatriz Barros
Victoria’s Secret Model Ana Beatriz Barros is always on the list of the Most Beautiful Women in the world and in her cream maxi dress I can see why. She’ll be watching some of the games and I can’t wait to see what casual clothes she wears as a spectator as they’re bound to be chic and stylish.
Izabel was photographed at the airport arriving in Rio for the sporting action, but one of my favourite outfits she’s worn recently was a gold dress at a film premiere. If you’ve got a bit of a tan (real or bottled from St Tropez) then gold will lift it out and give you a real glow. It’s a stunning colour!
Are you feeling ready to celebrate, Brazilian style? Whether you’re watching the sport or not, you can always use it as an excuse to party!
