Yes, the photo is a decent imitation but, "Ain't nothin' like the real thing
Well, all I can say is, "Aye yi, yi-yi, have you ever danced in the tropics?
In the kind of lazy and kind of hazy, Souse American way? Aye yi, yi-yi,
have you ever kissed in the moon light, in that kind of glorious, and
notorious, Souse American way?" To most people Carmen Miranda was totally
over the top. Anyone who has ever been to Brazil realizes that she was
merely scratching the surface! As Jeremy Irons said in both his roles as
Klaus von Bulow and as Scar in Lion King, "You have no ijjeahhh!"

OT, there is some biographical information about Carmen on IMDB. She was born in Portugal but moved to Brazil when a child. Whe was extremely popular when I was a kid and I remember hearing her on the radio and seeing her as a guest star on TV shows. There should be color photos of her somewhere because she was in some Technicolor movies.
