Her website says "...Izabel Goulart was born on October 23, 1984 in São Carlos, Brazil. She is one of seven children that include four brothers, one sister, and one half-sister. Like many other models, she has a strange way in which she was discovered. While she was out shopping for groceries with her mother one day, a hairdresser approached her and told her she should become a model. So following the advice of that hairdresser, she moved to São Paulo and began modeling.
While walking in her first runway, her bikini top fell off of her, exposing herself to the crowd. However, she remained composed and received excellent praise from numerous people in the industry. After that, her career took off quickly. She was walking in numerous runway shows around the world and soon there after she made the decision to move to the United States to continue her modeling career.
Upon her move to New York City, Izabel was named as one of the Victoria's Secret Angels. She landed a multi-year contract with the Lingerie company and made her debut in 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show which was held in November of 2005. In addition to Victoria's Secret, she has also been in advertising campaigns for La Senza, Poko Pano, Valfrance, Express, Cori, Forum, Pollini, Pura Mania, among many others. She's appeared on the covers of several magazines worldwide including Numero, Elle, Vogue, and Marie Claire. She is still living in the New York City area when she isn't traveling the world for appearances, runway shows, and fashion shoots.
In her spare time she enjoys bowling, and playing tennis and basketball. In the winter of 2007, Izabel will make her acting debut, playing herself on an episode of the highly acclaimed HBO series, Entourage. In October of 2006 Izabel was named to Esquire Magazine's annual list of 100 things, people, ideas, and trends you need to know.Her star just keeps getting brighter..."
