There is a very fine line between sexy and over-the-top, and the Marie Claire Brasil August issue played perfectly on that line and made a smouldering editorial spread.

This spread features model Paloma Passos, who has a sultry, seductive presence. When you combine her charisma with pieces of lingerie, you have a combo for success. The lingerie that is featured has an old-world retro feel, complete with high-waisted shorts and eyelet bras that are paired with lace and satin. The backdrop of the shoot resembles a hotel room, which adds to the sultry rendezvous theme of the editorial. This is a spread that has a theme and sticks to it, from hair and makeup to wardrobe all come together into one entire package.

The Marie Claire Brasil August issue makes retro rendezvous seem sexy.
