The February 2009 issue of Dazed & Confused magazine features a visual extravaganza by photographer Mariano Vivanco that celebrates Brazil and its carnival culture.

Models Ana Cluadia, Pedro, Junior, Ganriel, and Leo were styled by the brilliant Nicola Formichetti in excessive headgear and necklaces.

The black and white images range from the high energy to the subdued and relaxed with a subtle erotic undertone.

Implications - Model Ana Claudia's pin-straight hair, complete with blunt bangs, gives the 'Brazil' editorial an edgy undertone. Followed by male models, Ana Claudia seems to be the center of attention and easily dominates the editorial spread with her piercing facial expressions and doll-like poses.
