Below, let´s see some of her quotes that show her passion and fever towards the Brazilian Festivity and Samba. One of her statements about her body, costume and Paparazzi gained an unexpected instant fame!
About her Carnaval Love: “I am crazy about Carnaval, and since I am not shooting, I was able to devote myself to Grande Rio Samba School. I hope I can parade again next year.”
About her Bra Costume: “A lot was said about my body, but in terms of my costume, it will have a bra, an underwear and back-piece. I didn´t ask for any recommendation for a more discrete model, I only asked for carnival costume that was not too exaggerated…At the parade day, be sure that I will not wear pants, I will show my tummy, thighs, bottoms, everything they want to see….”
About her Body: “I have always worked out, and not only for Carnaval. My body did not turn out this way from day to night. I look this way for a long time. The difference is that I don´t like to show off.”
About the emotion of parade: “There is always that thrill and emotion through your spine. You can feel that thrill sensation. You kind of get used to it with time, but it’s always very emotional”
About samba practice: “ I had a very rigid education, my father did not allow me to go samba-practices. At the coronation day as princess, my stomach was pure thrilling. Imagine a girl that could not join a samba-rehearsal who later becomes the Queen of Samba-School Drum Section.”
Good Luck Paola in your 2010 Carnival Parades with Grande Rio!
