‘I don’t want to be stuck in a box. I’m much bigger than that. I can be everything.’

Refusing to be pigeonholed as sexy, Brazilian supermodel Isabeli Fontana wants to enjoy every amazing experience she can pack into her busy life.

HFM talks exclusively to Isabeli Fontana – the Brazilian supermodel who’s been named one of the world’s top-earning models by Forbes, has walked for Victoria’s Secret countless times, been a Pirelli calendar regular and worked for every big name designer in her two-decade career, including Chanel, Versace and Armani.

The 35-year-old Brazilian was discovered at a talent competition in aged 13. “It was my neighbour who suggested it to my mum, who applied for me,” she told us. The following year she and her mum (“she’s always been with me”) moved from their small rural village of Curitiba, southern Brazil to Milan, in pursuit of her modelling career.
