TOP 20 Brazilian Brunettes Ranking - Part I
The objective of this article is to describe the visual identity of an authentic Brazilian brunette, as well as the essence of the "Brazilian look". Brazil´s beauty is direct result of the "melting pot factor", where several different genetic backgrounds blend in perfect harmony.
Most of you would think that writing about Brazilian women should be an easy task, right? Not really... Since the "Girl from Ipanema" days in the 50´s, all the way to glorious Giselle Bundchen, Brazil women have shown their genetic gift for beauty. The purpose of this article is an attempt to rank the current Top 5 most dazzling Brazilian Brunettes.
Before we review this ranking, we would like to describe a bit of the selection criteria we considered. To join this ranking, Brazilian beauties would necessarily need to have a "Brazilian Look", which normally means dark hair, brown eyes, and sun-tanned skin. Another very important selection criterion was body shape. Since we up-front defined the "Brazilian Look" as a must for this list, catwalk type models were avoided. Curves are an essential item for a true Brazilian Brunette, or "morena" in Portuguese. A good set of body proportions goes without saying.
Finally, apart from proving a brief biography of each selected personality, we also explained why the dazzling Brazilian brunette was chosen to be a part of this unique ranking.
