BRAZILIAN BEAUTIES TOUCH DOWN IN RIO
After her stay in Singapore, Victoria's Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio made her way back to the paradise that is Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to enjoy a healthy mixture of beach, sun, and coconut drinks alongside Adriana Lima and Ryan Seacrest. But the Brazilian models' responsibilities proved to be much more than looking great by the pool. Alessandra took to Instagram to express her excitement over carrying the Olympic torch in her home country.

Speaking of epic moments, Alessandra attended the Omega event yesterday, where she showed off a gorgeous white halter style gown that enhanced her bronzed goddess glow. Her hair was worn sleek and straight, while her makeup look was simple yet elegant, with nothing more than voluminous lashes and dewy skin contributing to her enviable summer tan.
Meanwhile, brunette bombshell Adriana Lima took to the beaches of Rio de Janeiro to film alongside Ryan Seacrest and Alessandra Ambrosio, wearing one of summer 2016's most coveted hair trends: boxer braids. And like her fellow Brazilian supermodels, Adriana took to Instagram to express excitement over carrying the Olympic torch in her home country.

Brazilian model and L'Oreal muse Isabeli Fontana took to Instagram last week to post a photo of herself basking in the sun on the beaches of Rio, showing love and support for her home country.
