If I wanted, I simply couldn’t describe how crazy it was to be in Rio for the last day of Carnival. After spending almost four hours at the Banda de Ipanema (see post before), I quickly changed into a more glamorous look to attend the even more glamorous event: the Scala Gay Ball.
It was a great honor to be able to recoup my energies in the private area (camarote) of Scala where drinks and all types of delicious food were being served from the moment we arrived until when we left. I said “we” because I was in the company of iconic and uber talented Brazilian photographer Frederico Mendes, who is now a doing a book about the Carnival…oh yesssssssss…his most recent book “Arpoador” is so beautifully stunning, and its book launch party (2014) shook up the Rio de Janeiro society, it was quite scandalous. I just  can’t wait for the upcoming release of his new work that will be published by Barléu, later this year, with his artistic vision of Carnival. You can follow Frederico’s Instagram HERE.
The Scala Gay Ball was fantastic, the legendary Rogeria was crowned the 2016 Queen and the main room of Scala was about samba, decadence and happiness where people danced until sunrise.
