Brazilians - The Hottest Women in the World
The Hottest Women in the World, Brazilians
Brazil (or the Federative Republic of Brazil) is the fifth largest country in the world, and the biggest country in South America.
When someone mentions Brazil, depending on what you are interested in, you may think about the Rio Carnival, Samba (or the Lambada), Football (Soccer here), music, beaches or even martial arts like the world famous Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or Capoeira.
Or you just MAY think about beautiful women.
I mean c'mon, Brazilian women are legendary.
Would there even be a Victoria's Secret catalog without Brazilian models?
It probably all started in the 1940s with Carmen Miranda and moved up to Sonia Braga and now Morena Baccarin.
So here are some of the hottest Brazilian women in the world....
Probably the most famous Brazilian model in the world, Adriana Lima.
You can't really say that she made Victoria's Secret, but would they have really been the same without her?
This five foot ten, brown haired, blue eyed beauty was born on June 12,1981 in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
Besides VS's catalog, she has appeared in Arena, ELLE, Vogue and Cosmopolitan among many, many others.
And she has modeled for bebe, GUESS?, Armani and Ralph Lauren among again, many, many others.
You don't hear a lot about supermodel Gisele Bundchen these days, but the sixteenth richest woman in the entertainment world stays busy.
Yeah, you read that right, sixteenth richest woman.
Besides being a model and sometime actress, she is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme.
Gisele is five foot eleven and was born on July 20th, 1980 in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Like Adriana, she is a Victoria's Secret Angel.
And by all accounts Gisele is a really nice person, taking the time to help out the other Brazilian models when they got to the US.
And now we have someone that isn't a model!
She is Brazilian comedian and television personality, Sabrina Sato.
Sabrina was born on February 4, 1981 in Penapolis, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
She has appeared on Big Brother Brasil 3 and Panico na TV.
Sabrina is an Asian Brazilian, her mother being Japanese.
And we are back to the models and Victoria's Secret with Alessandra Ambrosio.
Alessandra was born on April 11th, 1981 in Erechim, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
She is one of the models I was talking about earlier when I said Gisele Bundchen helped a lot of models out.
When Alessandra first got to the US, Gisele loaned her her apartment for two weeks.
Besides modeling and sometimes acting she is an ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Finally a Brazilian model that hasn't worked for Victoria's Secret!
Luciana Gimenez was born on November 3rd, 1969 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
She is famous not only for being a model, but also as being the mother of one of Mick Jagger's seven children, Maurice Morad Jagger (born May 18, 1999).
Luciana is the hostess of the TV show Superpop on Brazil's Rede TV.
Maria Joao is a model and she appeared on the cover of the 1978 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
She is also the mother of actress Jordana Brewster.
And we're back to Victoria's Secret with model Ana Hickmann.
Back when they had the title, the Guinness Book of World Records had Ana listed as the model with the longest legs.
She's 73 and a half inches tall, and her legs measure 48 inches.
Ana was born on March 1st, 1981 in Santa Cruz do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil and besides VS, she has worked for Nivea, L'Oreal, Clairol, Bloomingdales, and appeared on the covers of Vogue, Marie Claire, and Elle.
Okay it's soft spot time here with Morena Baccarin.
I like Morena because she was in one of my favorite TV shows of all time, Firefly.
She played Inara Serra the Companion.
She was also on Stargate SG-1 as Adria and V as Anna.
I guess Morena loves her some Sci Fi.
She was born on June 2nd, 1979 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Yes Feiticeira means Witch in Portuguese and it is the nickname of Brazilian model and actress Joana Mortimer Prado.
Joana got the nickname because she left men "Bewitched".
Feiticeira rose to fame on the TV show "H" that aired on the Rede Bandeirantes television network.
She has three kids and is married to MMA fighter Vitor Belfort (19-8-0).
Joana was born on June 22, 1976 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Another young lady that was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil is Ellen Rocche.
She was born on July 19th, 1979.
Ellen is a model, but you may know her best as one of the many Lara Croft Tomb Raider live action models.
She was Lara between Lara Weller and Lucy Clarkson.
Interestingly enough, when Lara was first created, one of the ideas they had for her was Laura Cruz, a South American adventurer.
