Kim Kardashian’s butt may have been all over the news here last week, but in Brazil Indianara Carvalho’s well-formed rump is the one making headlines. Earlier this week, the 22-year old stunner claimed the 2014 Miss BumBum title.
Showing off her curvy behind to a panel of judges, Carvalho, from the state of Santa Catarina, beat out the other 14 finalists – including pre-contest favorite Claudia Allende – to claim the title of best butt in Brazil and a check worth more than $24,000.
“Whatever happens, I thank God first. Yesterday was a very special night for me and also for all the people who love me and believe in me,” Carvalho gushed on her Instagram account.
To be fair Carvalho did go on an impressive P.R. campaign in the lead-up to the finals, including a very memorable trip to Paris, where she showed off her barely-covered behind in the City of Lights before police forced her to cover up and take her talents elsewhere.
The police threat, however, did not deter the brave Brazilian beauty. She simply found a more secluded spot near the Eiffel Tower to continue the photo shoot, stripping off her top, slipping into a pair of black swimsuit bottoms, black high heels and … well, actually, that’s all she was wearing.
The Miss BumBum competition showcases, as should be perfectly obvious from its name, the buttocks of representatives from each of the country’s 27 states, with 15 finalists battling it out in São Paulo for the best buns in Brazil. This year’s competition was the most diverse yet with the inclusion of plus-size model Juliana Bittencortt and the oldest ever candidate, 39-year-old Patricia Oliveira.
