Aparecida Petrowky, a star of the prime-time soap Viver a Vida (To Live a Life), is drawing attention for her looks, talent and hip, urban street style. Petrowky, 26, plays Sandrinha, a middle-class girl who gets pregnant by a Rio de Janeiro drug trafficker. At the start of the soap, Sandrinha wore jeans and colorful T-shirts. While pregnant and after giving birth, she wore denim jumpsuits and short, button-down summer dresses, colorful Converse All Star tennis shoes—a hip sneaker among young Brazilian women—and loads of silver arm bracelets.

 

Petrowky describes her own style as more “basic classical.”

 

“I wear longer dresses than Sandrinha does, sometimes strapless or one-shouldered, and without all of her arm bracelets,” says Petrowky. “What we have in common is a love of colorful apparel and All Stars, which we even wear with our dresses.”
