To speak about Carol Perlingeiro’s beauty might sound cliché. At the age of 27, the Rio de Janeiro Carnival “it-girl” is requested by the very best fashion and lifestyle photographers. Her perfect tan and easy smile is hard to miss, but what drew us in is her courage to live life fearlessly.
Since moving from her hometown, Teresina, to Rio eight years ago, Carol has been living as a true carioca. When she’s not busy modelling for the biggest brands in the Brazilian fashion scene (such as Farm and Animale), she can be seen roaming in the beautiful city of Rio, visiting her favourite spots, with her pet chihuahua, Tonha, in tow.
Between its sweet and salty waters, Rio holds and embraces all of those who jump head first into the incredible experience the city can provide. Since her arrival, she has been living a bohemian lifestyle; not worrying about the little things in life, typical of a girl from Rio. A perfect day for her in the land of the cariocas is to visit one of the remote beaches (view from Grumari and Itacoatira are pretty unforgettable) on a sunny day, in a pair of fitted jeans, casual sneakers, and a nice bikini. She likes to finish the day watching the sunset, drinking a cold beer in the famous traditional bar, Bar do Mineiro, located in Santa Teresa. It is safe to say that Carol Perlingeiro in Rio de Janeiro is like a fish in water; Carol is free and full of energy, just like Rio is.
