Note from BW of Brazil: It’s true! Beautiful Brazilian women come in all shapes, sizes and colors! The problem has been for a long time and continues to be that according to the mainstream media, there is much smaller range of diversity than what really exists. And the overwhelming majority of those women are usually slim, with blonde or brunette hair. You get the picture. Consider this: if Brazil’s black women are rarely presented in the media (except for in the coming Carnaval season), can you imagine how invisible the black women who weigh more than the accepted standard of beauty are? BW of Brazil has presented the beauty of Plus Size black Brazilian women in past posts and we bring you more of them here today in a stunning new fashion layout!
“Tropical Paradise” editorial presents the black Brazilian plus size woman
By Aline Ramos
The renowned photographer Adriana Líbini started the year presenting us with an Editorial Moda (Fashion) Plus Size that seeks to portray the beauty of black women. As the first work of the year, “Tropical Paradise” presents women full of vitality, with bright and shining eyes. In addition to the perfectly curved lashes and sculpted cheekbones.
The chosen models were Dayana Toledo and Fabiola Romão that came out very well with multicolored looks. The makeup is eye-catching, with colorful powder shadows from pink blush, bright colored lipsticks in shades of pink, orange or purple. The result was a trial full of lightness, charm and joy, in a black women’s style, isn’t it? The photo shoot is really beautiful, we love it. Take a look at all of the photos.
