35 Beautiful and Shocking Brazilian Innovations

From Camilla Belle to Condom Machines

— November 15, 2008 — World
Brazilian beauty Camilla Belle is making headlines today for capturing the heart of Joe Jonas, but Brazil has long been known for its preponderance of beautiful women like Izabel Goulart and Adriana Lima.

Brazil has made headlines for other reasons than Camilla Belle, however. Earlier this year, the country attracted a ton of media attention when condom machines were installed in schools and controversial anti-drug ads popped up around Sao Paulo.

And there are a bevy of bizarre Brazilian stories about beauty, from surgically-created Asian eyes to Botox injections for the poor and a string of anorexia-related deaths. It seems that for all the women who are born with natural beauty like Camilla Belle and Adriana Lima, there are hundreds more who must resort to plastic surgery to achieve their good looks.

Below, take a break from reading about Camilla Belle and Joe Jonas to check out some of the other, far worthier headlines Brazil has made.
