As millions tune in to watch the sequin-clad samba dancers at Rio de Janeiro's Carnival parade, celebrities have also flocked in, to be part of the world's biggest party.
This year, beer company Brahma roped in American actress Megan Fox to promote the brand. The 26-year-old star who was accompanied by her husband Brian Austin Green was also spotted visiting a local samba school in Sao Paulo.
