Talk about a culture clash.
What do you get when one of the contestants in Brazil's most notorious beauty contest poses topless next to Paris's most venerated tourist attraction?
The contest in question is, of course, Miss Bum Bum, which celebrates the ample assets of Brazilian women. The attraction is the Eiffel Tower, which was first, um, erected in 1889.
Arousing the stares of Parisians and tourists alike, Indianara Carvalho bared her barely-covered behind in the city of lights before police forced her to cover up and asked her to take her talents elsewhere as she began to strip off even more of her skimpy outfit.
The police threat, however, did not deter the brave Brazilian beauty. She simply found a more secluded spot near the Tower to continue the photo shoot, stripping off her top, slipping into a pair of black swimsuit bottoms, black high heels and… well, actually, that's all she was wearing.
Ms. Carvalho’s Parisian striptease isn’t the first time – and probably not the last – that a Miss Bum Bum contestant has shown off her famous features abroad.
The winner of the contest in 2012, Carine Felizardo, showed off her award-winning tush at the "Crossroads of the World" when she strutted around New York City’s Times Square in a skimpy bikini during a frigid day in January.
And don't fret that the girls of the contest might be neglecting their fellow Brazilians. A group of them headed out to the streets of São Paulo to give the city a glimpse their bounteous booties.
The girls also recently posted online a series of sultry pics from a photo shoot showcasing their moneymakers.
After online voting for the annual contest reached a million votes, the organizers put out the photos of the 27 girls garbed in little more than lingerie.
