Heloisa "Helo" Pinheiro, the woman that inspired the classic bossa nova song, "The Girl From Ipanema," poses for a photo backdropped by a collage of pictures from her youth, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The quintessential tune was inspired by Pinheiro when she passed the songwriters in a beach side bar on her way to the sea, 50 years ago. To its legions of fans, the decades have only heightened the song's allure, adding a wash of nostalgia to this hymn to passing youth and beauty. At 68, Pinheiro has two TV shows roles and is planning to launch a book in English about her past
