Isabeli Fontana

Date Of Birth:
7 April 1983
Place Of Birth:
Parana, Brazil
Best Known As:
The teenaged Victoria's Secret model of 1999
Isabeli Fontana began appearing in the Victoria's Secret catalog in 1999 -- reportedly after her youthful good looks caused the company to breach its usual policy of hiring only models aged 21 or older. She began her modeling career at the age of 13, and has worked steadily ever since, returning to the high fashion scene in 2002 after a break to have her first child when she was 19. Isabeli Fontana has modeled commercially for Ralph Lauren and Valentino, among many others, and appeared on the covers of Vogue, Marie Claire and Elle. She was part of the 'Brazilian model invasion' of the late 1990s, in a group including Gisele Bundchen, Ana Claudia Michels and Adriana Lima.

Isabeli Fontana sometimes goes by the one-name moniker ‘Isabeli.’
