Anitta arrives at Univision's 31st Edition Of Premio Lo Nuestro A La Musica Latina - Pink Carpet at American Airlines Arena on Feb. 21, 2019 in Miami. 

The Brazilian Carnival is underway in the South American country, and in true Anitta fashion, she’s going all out.

As tradition holds, the festival is held between the Friday afternoon before Ash Wednesday, until Ash Wednesday at noon, and involves colorful costumes, live music, and parades.

For the 2019 fest, which kicked off Friday afternoon (March 1) and runs until Wednesday midday (March 6), the Brazilian superstar is paying tribute to some iconic looks from the ‘90s, including Mariah Carey.

One of her recent looks, where she’s dressed as a dominatrix, has been criticized on social media, to which the singer responded to haters and trolls on an Instagram post

“Carnaval is a huge one-week party that happens on the streets of the whole country. Every day I'm performing for thousands of people and the tradition of this moment is to dress costumed for it. The theme of my Carnaval this year is to remember iconic looks from the 90's and 2000's. Today I dressed like a huge iconic sex symbol in Brazilian television more than 10 years ago. Enjoy this crazy/amazing Brazilian tradition on my stories,” she expressed.

Check out Anitta's looks from the 2019 Brazilian Carnival below.

Enjoy this crazy/amazing Brazilian tradition on my stories. / Amei encarnar a Tiazinha na minha fantasia de carnaval de hoje. Aliás, que carnaval sensacional na cidade de Aracati. Levei minha família inteira que agora não quer mais voltar pra casa. O que eu faço? Haha. Muito obrigada! Show lindo. (Aguardem que eu não esqueci da ícone Feiticeira. Já tá chegando.)
