Rise Like a Phoenix - Maria Borges

Angola's Maria Borges is without a doubt one of the most charismatic personalities that IMA has encountered along the casting trail. The Supreme Model Management-repped beauty is impossible to miss at castings with her 180 cm statuesque frame, rich mocha skin tone, and the sound of her ebullient laughter. Raised by her older brother and sister during Angola's tumultuous civil war, Borges path to modelling success began after she placed second in the Elite Model Look Angola 2010 competition. Borges was signed swiftly by Supreme Models in New York before making her international runway debut at the Spring/Summer 2011 collections. Borges has since become a firm runway fixture and favourite with designers Oscar de la Renta, Riccardo Tisci, and Tom Ford amongst others. Borges striking beauty has gained significant exposure in the pages of Love, CR Fashion Book, Harper's Bazaar, W, French Numéro, and the German, British, Portuguese, and Italian editions of Vogue, and also features in Givenchy's Spring/Summer 2014 campaign lensed by Mert & Marcus. This month Borges adds another credit to her modelling resumé with a stunning only-girl editorial for Vogue Brasil. Photographer Nicole Heiniger and Fashion Editor Lucas Boccalao create a selection of visually arresting images with Borges decked out in shimmering silver, gold, and pink ensembles while posing against a black backdrop. Borges is a vision of Goddess-like proportions decked out in sequinned pants, jackets, and dresses matched with the ultimate accessory - her mega-watt smile.
