Brazil's Finest

Twenty year old Lais Ribeiro from Miguel Alves in Brazil was discovered in a beauty contest in 2009 and made her international debut at the Fall/Winter 2010 shows where she walked in an impressive 24 shows including Marc Jacobs, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Givenchy and Christian Dior. Selected as one of the Top Ten newcomers by, Ribeiro's unique beauty is the result of a melange of races and her stunning physique is awe-inspiring given that she is the mother of a two year old boy named Alexandre.

Ribeiro has been photographed recently by Steven Meisel for American Vogue, Emma Summerton for Vogue Italia and Victor Demarchelier for Vogue Espana. In 2010 Ribeiro was selected to appear in the  annual Victoria's Secret Runway extravaganza and has also been featured in campaigns for Ralph Lauren, American Eagle, J Crew and the GAP. The challenge for Ribeiro's management team at Women Models will be ensuring that this newcomer maintains her high fashion edge whilst also appealing to more commercial end clients.
