5 Brazilian Models Keeping Us In The Olympic Spirit

​Can we be from Brazil too?


The 2016 Olympic Games kicked off this Monday in Brazil, a country renowned for it's sandy beaches, carnivals, happy people and..well, supermodels.

We decided to celebrate this event in the best way we know– by honoring the most successful ones.

Gisele Bundchen


"Brazil's most famous export" appeared in the Rio Opening Ceremony on Friday walking the world's longest runway, reported at an impressive 128 meters, in stilettos. No wonder she's the highest-earning model in the world.

Adriana Lima


Another national treasure, the blue-eyed beauty has been giving everyone life envy since she first became a Victoria's Secret Angel in 2000. Fast-forward 16 years later, and the mother of two remains one of the world's most in demand models.

Alessandra Ambrosio

The last of the original Brazilian VS Angel trio and one of the most beautiful women in the world. Go on her Instagram if you need some fuel for your holiday daydreaming. Makes us want to sip Caipirinhas on the beach NOW.

Raquel, one of the biggest names in the industry, recently appeared in the dreamy Prada campaign shot by Steven Meisel. In her free time she apparently likes to play guitar, surf and skateboard. Badass.

Lais Ribeiro


The Amazonian is the latest Brazilian to earn her VS wings. She began modelling at 18 after giving birth to her son Alex, soaring from rural Brazil to world's most exclusive runways. Now that's a success story we like to hear.
