As the birthplace of carnival, coffee and scantily clad women, it’s no wonder Brazil has been a long-standing literal hot spot south of the border. And with Latin America’s fifth largest Fashion Week in São Paulo, it is a formidable force driving editors from all over the globe to its locale for runway presentations. From Gisele Bündchen to Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, Brazilian bombshell babes run the gamut of sex appeal and exude it well in little to no clothing at all—especially when they’re surfside in suggestive swimwear. Perpetually warm temperatures and a signature bare-all wax mean there is a bounty of revealing bikinis coming out of São Paulo Fashion Week… and they leave very little to the imagination. Still, we think our Brazilian brethren wouldn’t have it any other way.
