- It’s one of pre-fall’s hottest trends, but is carnival style wearable? CHRISTA D’SOUZA joins the party
Pre-fall, that most fashionable of times, is upon us. And the trend I have fallen hard for this year? Carnival. Not the traveling circus-type carnival, but hot, vibrant, big-C Carnival, held in sunny Rio. Sigh. Rio – can there be a more exotic-sounding city in the world? What with the World Cup being held there and all, I suppose this column really ought to be an ode to soccer. But what if, like me, you really couldn’t care less about sport? What if the thing that interests you most about the whole dang thing is what everyone is wearing there?
Those lucky enough to call Rio home sure look like they know how to party
