Breaking New Ground

In 2012, Bruna became the first model of color to walk exclusively for Calvin Klein. She made her debut at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2013, and wowed audiences with her style and grace. She has appeared on the cover of many publications like Vogue Italia, Marie Claire Italy, Glass, Crash Magazine and 7 Post. Bruna has appeared in more than 100 fashion shows and has modeled for prestigious fashion labels like Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Donna Karan, Elie Saab, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, and Topshop.

The Simple Solution

With so many campaigns under her belt, Bruna has become one of the most sought after fashion models in the world. Bruna’s net worth is around $1.5 million and is sure to grow as her career has just begun. Bruna loves to eat good food. She indulges herself regularly with bread, butter, cheese, pasta, lots of vegetables, and white meat —even before shows! Her recipe for a slim figure is “just workout. You can eat whatever you want if you workout, and that’s what I’m doing.”
