There must be something in the Brazilian water that is making their models some of the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous and most successful models in the world.
It could be the beautiful sunshine or the youthful lifestyle, but we are so grateful that the fusion of Latin, Asian, African and European communities that live in Brazil have created stunning models to grace our runways, screens and magazine covers.
Victoria’s Secret can’t get enough of the Brazilian bombshells, and neither can we. So to celebrate the Rio Olympics starting today, here are the most gorgeous male and female models that we have ever had the pleasure of laying our eyes on.
Ambrosio is best-known for strutting down the Victoria’s Secret runway as an angel, but she has also modelled for Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren and Balmain. According some sources, she had her ears pinned back when she was child, but suffered complications two years later which has put her off plastic surgery for life.
The Brazilian beauty is the highest-paid model in the world – she makes around $128,000 a day from ad campaigns alone and has a net worth of $360 million. Bundchen has modelled for the biggest names in the business, including Victoria’s Secret, Versace and Chanel, whilst starting her own flip-flop, book and underwear ranges. Although her name will be remembered in the industry forever, she had a rough start to modelling as many designers turned her down for her ‘big nose’.
