Gal Costa's Tanga

One of the sexiest album covers ever, by Brazilian chanteuse and Tropicália muse Gal Costa. On the front cover, she adjusts (or starts to take off) a red tanga bottom which rather explicitly suggests what lies beneath. On the back cover and inside the album, she is topless in her partially nude "native" pics. And it's a great album. Gal is one of Brazil's best singers.

Sexy Gal Costa

Gal Costa has never been shy about her sexuality or her body.
