On Tuesday 10th of November took place in New York a new edition of the popular lingerie catwalk Victoria’s Secret, a good reason to remember the career of one of its most iconic angels: Ana Beatriz Barros. The Brazilian star of Mango’s last fashion show at 080 Barcelona Fashion, Ana Beatriz Barros is a global well-known top-model characterized by her green eyes, sultry lips and breathtaking body measures who, along Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima took the world of fashion by storm in the early 2000.
Born in 1982, her career started when she was very young because with only 14 years old she won a model competition for an important agency in Brazil. She then took part in the international contest where she got the second position, a success that brought her to New York to follow her dream to become a top-model. And she got her first big opportunity in 1999 thanks to the jeans brand Guess?, for which she was the face (and the body). From that moment, Ana Beatriz Barros combined catwalk jobs for designers like John Galliano, Versace and Custo Barcelona with magazine’s covers and editorials as well as ad campaigns. But, with no doubt, it’s the Victoria’s Secret show in which she took part for the first time in 2001, what made her reach international stardom.
