RIO DE JANEIRO – It's a record that can only be broken in Rio de Janeiro. A samba dancer has worn the smallest scrap of clothing ever in a Carnival parade. The O Globo newspaper said model Dani Sperle sported a sparkly silver headdress, a necklace, matching arm bands — and nothing else but a 3 centimeter (1.2-inch) long patch of cloth.
All in front of 80,000 Sambadrome specators early Monday morning.
That breaks the record set last year by Viviane Castro, whose covering was all of 4-centimeters (1.5 inches) long.
Judges last year penalized Castro for violating nudity limits. There's no word yet if Sperle's samba school will also lose points.
