Famous for: Larissa rose to international fame during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
She was first photographed by the international media in the moment of celebrating a goal during the game between her country’s soccer team of Paraguay and Slovakia; with her mobile phone between her breasts (she was wearing a very tight t-shirt with Paraguay's colors).

I was ready to take my clothes off for Paraguay because I love my country and I would do anything for it.
I love dancing and moving my body to music.
