Miniskirt student will parade in Carnival

November 27, 2009


— Brazilians will be seeing a lot more of the student whose short pink dress got her booted from college: She’s agreed to march in the nation’s famously flesh-baring Carnival parades.

Geisy Arruda, 20, who became an instant celebrity after being heckled by hundreds of fellow students because of her dress, said Thursday she has accepted invitations to participate with samba groups in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.

“It will be a dream come true for me,” Arruda said just before giving a deposition to police who are investigating whether crimes were committed when a crowd of students harassed her on Oct. 22 at the University Bandeirante in Sao Bernardo do Campo, just outside Sao Paulo.
