Lais Oliveira is the latest inductee into the elite class of the Victoria’s Secret Angels hitting the stage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016! There’s no denying that this Brazilian beauty was fated to be an Angel!
Lais Oliveira not only got the most coveted modeling gig in the Victoria’s Secret Show 2016, but she will also share the runway with her idols, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio, as well as another Brazilian first-time Angel, Lais Ribeiro. She has been vying for the opportunity to walk in the mega-fashion event since she was 13 years old, and her dream has finally come true! Oliveira finally got her big break, and we’re sure she will follow in Adriana Lima’s stilettos as another breakthrough Brazilian supermodel. Here’s everything you need to know about her in our Lais Oliveira wiki.
She was Fated to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel
The 27-year-old grew up watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows and admired the Angels, hoping to become one of them someday. “I was 13 years old, and I saw, like, big beautiful Angels walking with wings, and I was like, ‘Oh my God! This is so beautiful! I want to be there!'” Oliveira told Fox News Magazine. Oliveira didn’t just want to be a model, she wanted to be an Angel.
When she was 13, her mother took her to watch the Sao Paulo Fashion Week, where an agent spotted her among the crowd. He requested to take some Polaroid shots of Oliveira, and a few days later called to sign her with the agency.
She’s Done Editorials Worldwide
Let’s jump ahead to 2012, 10 years after the 2002 Sao Paulo Fashion Week, where Oliveira is a high-fashion professional model living the dream. Before she signed with Victora’s Secret, she had done numerous editorials in magazines worldwide. She has been featured in publications like Grazia UK, Harper’s Bazaar Argentina, Vogue Italia, and Vogue Japan. In 2015, she graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Argentina. With such extensive work, Oliveira has surely earned a lot, though her net worth is currently unknown.
Lais Oliveira had also walked for the spring/summer collection of Marc by Marc Jacobs in 2012. She was featured in the Lacoste Spring/Summer campaign that same year. The spread was shot by Ellen Von Unwerth, who is most noted for shooting album covers for Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, and Rihanna. She has also done campaigns for Revlon, Norma Kamali, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Cotton USA.
She’s Very Active on Instagram
Oliveira has a Twitter account, but has never actually tweeted! On the other hand, she has a very active Instagram account. The Brazilian bombshell has posted pictures from her photoshoots and behind the scenes shots. Oliveira has been updating her 100,000 followers on Instagram about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016.
She even posted a picture of herself at the gym with her idol, Adriana Lima. Her diet and fitness regime aren’t known, but the five-foot-nine brunette, who weighs only 115 pounds, must be working hard in the gym to maintain her slim build. Working out alongside Lima must have given “#trainlikeanangel” a much bigger meaning to Oliveira!
