Presumably all times of day in Brazil are beautiful. Why else then would over 5 million people visit the world’s fifth largest country each year since 2010? Thing is, though, even within the 24-hour cycle of a day there are some parts more beautiful than others. The May 2014 issue of Vogue Brasil trains its focus on the afternoon portion of the day (bela de tarde) and enlists no small amount of help from Aline Weber. Photographed by J.R. Duran, the editorial revels in flared skirts for spring, rich in color, prints, and texture. Voluminous hair and a strong lip by Silvio Giorgio inject a bit of theatricality that is matched only by the dramatic lighting, the sorts of which would not be out-of-place were they used in an afternoon telenovela. This is high drama, no question, and if the afternoon is this riveting, then there is no telling what Aline has in store for evening.
