Curvy beauty Suzy Cortez, 25, rings in the New Year in a sexy shoot after being voted the best bum in Brazil. The curvy beauty was voted the best bum in Brazil in the bizarre South American beauty pageant. More than 500 women took part in the Miss Bumbum pageant , which was whittled down to 15 finalists for each of the Brazilian states .
Miss Cortez, from Distrito Federal, beat off pert competition to take this year's title. Camila Gomes, representing Minas Gerais, came second while Dani Sperle, of Rio de Janeiro, finished in third place.
Speaking after the announcement, Suzy said: "I've been preparing myself for the past four months. I've always wanted to win this contest. "I dedicated myself completely. I dieted and did rigorous training." But the model has vowed to make next year her best yet - starting with an unusual New Year's resolution. The 25-year-old has vowed to "stop hooking up with footballers and having bad sex".
This year contestants had to prove that they had not undergone surgery nor used chemical products. Bottoms are a thing of national pride in Brazil, where some Carnival beauties have been reported to get their behinds covered by insurance companies.
