Meet Livia Facirolli, our Brazilian babe of the week! Livia is a fashion designer and style blogger living in Brazil with an Instagram account full of all the beauty, style, and bad bitch inspo a girl could ever need.

If you were a flavor of ice cream, would you be?
Saffron Passionfruit because it’s an unexpected flavor combination!
If you had to wear one outfit for the entire year of 2016, what would it be?
Probably something with tons of sequins and a sexy deep V décolletage. I’d pair that with leather boots and a perfect leather jacket.
On a scale of prude to nudist beach enthusiast, where do you stand?
[Laughing] Naked selfies till I die!
What’s a social media faux pas, in your opinion?
Being rude. People just shouldn’t waste their time being negative to others. And those people who buy fake followers — I really don’t get that.
What nail polish color would you be?
Black. Black. Black.
What’s some of the best advice you were given when you were just starting out?
Work really hard, but have fun while doing it. Life is too short to not love what you do!
If you were a music festival, which one would you be?
A festival with a killer lineup: The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Kiss, Aerosmith, Mettalica, Motley Crue and Motorhead (RIP LEMMY). If I had to choose a specific festival it’d be like, Governors Ball meets Monsters of Rock.
What’s the best thing about Brazil?
The food and the people. Brazilians are fun, friendly and nice people. And we are pretty damn sexy motherf*ckers!
