Biography

Tavares was born in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, and she was appearing in local shows at the age of nine, and at just 13 she won the "Elite Look of the Year." A year later she was invited by agents to go to São Paulo to pursue a modeling career. In 1998, at the age of 17, she was already appearing on the covers of fashion magazines – "L'Officiel Paris", Deutsch and U.S. "Marie Claire" and "Vogue Paris" – having signed up with the Marilyn Modeling Agency in both New York City and Paris. She would later go on to appear in numerous other popular magazines, including "ELLE", "Cosmopolitan", "Allure", and the "Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue".

Since 1998, Tavares has been walking down catwalks for the world's biggest designers, including Chanel, Emanuel Ungaro, Versace, Blumarine, Chloé, Christian Lacroix, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, John Galliano, Sonia Rykiel, Yohji Yamamoto, Hervé Léger, and Missoni. Tavares has helped promote brands like Versace, Chloé, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Mano, Nine West, Elite Model Management, Zoomp (Brazilian), and she was a top figure in the Ralph Lauren Spring 2000 collection, as well as the colorful Gap Jeans ads, also in the spring of 2000.

Tavares also works as a commercial advertising model and is a VJ for MTV Brasil, in which she hosts "Missão MTV", a show modelled after "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy". Tavares has signed a $1.3 million deal with Guerlain, a perfume company, and she regularly models for lingerie company, Victoria's Secret. She has appeared in the famous Victoria's Secret 2000 Fashion Show in Cannes and anti-fur advertisements for animal rights group PETA.
