Generation NeXt: Lais Ribeiro

08May10

19-year-old Brazilian bombshell, Lais Ribieiro, has to be the “prettiest” model I’ve seen in a while. Pretty, not typically a word used in the fashion world. A world where its visual success strive on awkwardness and unrealistic portrayals of girls. But yes, Lais Ribeiro is pretty, relatable, and could possibly be your next door neighbor that you can’t seem to wrap your finger around why you’re so jealous of her:

Although she started her modeling career just last year modeling locally in her hometown of Brazil, Lais quickly snagged a Brazilian ELLE editorial then went on to sign with Women Management in NYC. She made her big debut at the Rag & Bone show in New York, and quickly snatched up runway credits from the impressive and prestigious likes of Christian Dior, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Blumarine, Gucci, Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, Bottega Venetta, Hermès, and many more!

Her undeniable sexiness, but obvious innocence puts her in a special spot in the marketplace. She has a look that inspires. The last look that inspired, a pretty one, would have to belong to Twiggy in the 60’s. Or even Kara Young in the 90’s. With a look so versatile, I can see her career extending beyond fashion, and succeeding in film. Grounds models before her tried to conquer (see Tyra Banks), but to no avail.

Lais Ribeiro is definitely NeXt.
