A queen suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction on Saturday night after her minuscule thong came undone while parading in front of the crowds at a carnival. Tarine Lopes, bravely carried on dancing while she kept the fallen fabric in place with her left hand.
At one point she turned around and danced with her back to the camera – revealing just how daring her attire was – in a vain attempt to readjust the skimpy strip of green tape.
The incident happened as Ms Lopes performed with her school at the city’s famous Sambodromo do Anhembi.
Ms Lopes, from the city of Porto Seguro in the north-eastern state of Bahia, said: ‘Unfortunately my thong came unstuck in the middle of the avenue but people couldn’t stop.
‘I had to keep on dancing while I tried to keep it from falling off completely.’
