Resumo

This is a study on the costumes worn by Carmen Miranda during the Hollywood film “Week-End in Havana”, released in 1941. It analyzes the elements of costume and discusses how they are appropriate in the current fashion discourse reinforcing or perpetuating, somehow, the discourse about Brazil and Latin America created by the performance of Carmen many decades ago
