the girl from iplayboyma
SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - Still tall, tanned and stunning at the age of 55, the legendary "Girl from Ipanema" will again grace the Playboy Brazil magazine cover.
But this time, Helo Pinheiro, who first posed for Playboy 15 years ago, will be snapped along with her youngest daughter, Ticiane.
Initially Playboy wanted to snap Ticiane alone for its March edition, but the 24-year-old actress only agreed to do so with her mother by her side.
"Playboy said that it would be more angelic, sweeter and familiar. My daughters are still very close to me," Helo told Reuters on Thursday.
Helo, who inspired the famous Bossa Nova song as a teen-ager in 1962, said that when she first posed for Playboy in 1987 people thought it was her eldest daughter.
