MODEL OF THE MOMENT
With her full pouty lips and voluptuous curves, it’s no surprise Sara Sampaio is currently reigning on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk. The 25-year-old Portuguese beauty has been stealing the runway spotlight with her striking blue eyes and luscious brunette locks. But while her resemblance to fellow VS knockout Adriana Lima may make her a familiar face, Sampaio is the new kid on the street style block.
Born in Porto, Portugal, the exotic stunner first starred in a shampoo campaign at age 16, and continued modelling after heading to the University of Lisbon to study mathematics. In 2013, Sampaio officially donned the famous VS Angel wings, and has never looked back.
While she can be seen sporting wings, the bombshell also exhibits a down-to- earth attitude. In an interview with Vogue, Sampaio described her approach to staying beautiful. “When it comes to beauty, I feel that hanging with people you love, laughing, and doing silly things gets your spirits up. We are always prettier when we are happier,” she said.
From gracing the cover of Maxim to posting sizzling bikini shots on her Instagram, the dark-haired beauty certainly exudes a vivacious, natural sex appeal that the camera loves. With sightings on the Spring 2017 runways for Marc Jacobs, Moschino and Balmain, she’s sure to be a fashion fixture for years to come.
