Bruna was pictured soaking in the fun at the Rio Carnival 2018 donning a barely-there jeweled Samba ensemble that just-about covered her modesty. 

Bruna, known for her works in notable TV shows like Brazilian Telenovelas Mulheres Apaixonadas (2003) and América (2005), Breaking Through (2015 American-English dance drama film), reportedly rekindled the romance with Neymar last December. And the city of love Paris was everything to be blamed!
