Colorful while shaking and baking with flair, Brazil deservedly has constant control over our attention.

The success of the 2016 Olympics in Rio added to that lure.

As reported at the global news and information source, “International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach praised Rio’s “marvellous Games” during a closing ceremony marked by colour, music and rain at the Maracana Stadium. article, athavan-english-news photo article, athavan-english-news photo

But perhaps the most memorable moment of all was Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s starring role in the traditional handover segment to the next hosts, Tokyo.”


While we love all things Japan, for the moment, let’s continue to enjoy all things flavorful and exciting in Brazil and now that the elite athletics have ended, it’s time to turn our attention back to the industry where Brazil has sprinted ahead with the latest trends.

Fashion is the big name and leading the way is Brazil’s game.

The fun site shares, “The residents of Brazil love to wear bright colored attires and their dresses often have dramatic patterns and cuts. The fashion in Brazil varies according to the region. However, the general Brazilian fashion has a tendency towards unisex attire. Casual clothing is quite popular in Rio. In areas like Sao Paolo people dress up in a more quirky manner. In Northern Brazil women’s fashion does not include trousers. They usually go for snazzy top and shorts.”

Two Brazilian shapely models come to mind because after viewing their sensuous curves it’s impossible to get them off of our minds.

She turns heads when she walks down city streets and she has the elite street creds as well.

Our beauty was Miss Plus Size Carioca 2011, Miss Rio de Janeiro Plus Size 2013, Miss Brasil Universo Plus Size 2014 and Miss Plus Universe 2014.

Shapely model fashion industry leader is always in on the name and provides us with our gorgeous girl’s profile. “Silvia has been a plus size model for three years. She became a plus size model when she watched an interview with Fluvia Lacerda on television. After which she researched the modeling market in Brazil and applied to a few modeling agencies. She was booked immediately and started networking for her discovery.”

Wonderful news for us. Just look at her again, and again and again. article, photo article, photo

Silvia is a philosopher as well. In her interview with, when asked what makes a woman glamorous she replied, “It is the woman who has a bigger self-esteem than her size; it is a woman who is not influenced by a market that values a size out of people’s reality. It is a glamorous woman is a woman who can be happy the way she is.”

Very enlightening.

More enlightenment is on the way from Brazil.

We’ve had a chance to meet two shapely and sensuous trend setting Brazilian models and at Femcompetitor Magazine we love to follow Brazilian fashion.

We have a visiting female writer who is going to help us understand the fashion point.

Brazilian Invasion – All Signs Pointing South in Women’s Fashion Trends

By Laine McKenna  

Those ultra-straight long locks of hair and false eyelashes that were so popular in 2011? The mini dresses resurrected from the 1980s and the chunky platform heels? They’re all a product of a fashion craze that’s sweeping not just the U.S. but the entire world – Rio De Janiero!

From superstar-super models like Giselle Bunchen and Alessandra Ambrosio, to an entire Victoria’s Secret catalog devoted entirely to Brazilian-inspired swimwear, it’s clear the American population is quickly embracing the fun-loving, creative styles of Brazil, and there’s no slowing down.

Go to any high-end hair salon, and browse their menu of services. Chances are, you’ll see the “Brazilian Blowout” on the list. The curve-enhancing skinny jeans that were all the rage in 2011, and are still popular in 2012? Those are from Brazil too!

Go to any health or fitness club, and chances are, you’ll find a line of Brazilian workout wear, workout classes, even workout DVDs catered to developing the infamous “Brazilian booty,” American women are gravitating towards the looks and attitudes of Brazilian culture, as well as surrounding parts of South America.

So when it comes down to it, Brazilian fashion is much more than just fashion. It’s an attitude, a way of embracing curves, independence, and sex appeal, but in a classy sophisticated way. Dress shirts are subtly low-cut with just a subtle hint of cleavage, and are paired with jeans, and heels. Miniskirts are worn with oversized, colorful tees and cinched in with a studded or leather belt.

Even at work, these types of fashions can be seen. Colorful, stylish ballet flats offer just the right amount of comfort and support, and spice up plain black slacks and a sweater. They come in plenty of styles, like leopard prints and glittery fabrics. For cold weather, you’ll see leather or snakeskin high-heel boots or soft, suede clogs, which go great with colorful scarves and a chic coat.

Are you not a fan of high heels? Perhaps they hurt your feet or your back? Brazilian heels come in a variety of shapes and sizes, not just four and five-inch stilettos. You can try the Brazilian two-inch peep-toe shoe, which offers the right amount of style and sex appeal, pain-free. You can pair it with a nice skirt and colorful blouse and also with a blazer or cardigan.

For jewelry, which it comes to pairing with these types of shoes, the key is color, and also bold, geometric shapes for gold and silver pieces. Pair jewelry sparingly though, as it is easy to overdo this type of stuff, and nobody wants to look like they’re wearing a Halloween costume. If you’re going with a bold necklace, then pair it with a small pair of stud earrings. For big earrings, skip the necklace and wear a bold bracelet or ring with it, but not both. Stick to key fashion pieces that pop, and pair with subtle accessories, including a purse. The basic rule of thumb when it comes to accessories and today’s trendy fashions – less is always more.
