• Fresh New Face: Tayane Leao

    Tayane Leao

    When it comes to the one country that exports supermodels, the gorgeous South American country of Brazil instantly comes to mind. One of their latest exports is the beautiful Tayane Leao. She was born in Para, Brazil, which is in the northern region. In 2009 she won the Ford Supermodel of the World contest which catapulted her to another level. After winning the contest, she signed with Ford Models and quickly began to walk the runways including; the Andy & Debb show in New York. She also walked the Sophie Thallet show that year too. Her reputation began to grow and soon she was booked for the Diane Von Furtstenberg, Carolina Herrera’s resort wear and  the rag + bone collection. Last spring, she walked for the Givenchy in Paris. She is definitely one to watch!
