1 in a Billion... err Brazilian
Gear Girl – Isabeli Fontana
If beauty is about grabbing attention, you won’t need a Ph.D in rocket science to comprehend how lovely Isabeli was discovered at the young age of 16. Yes, for better or worse, this Brazilian (shocker!) and formerly Mormon (umm..shocker?) vixen made her start appearing in Victoria Secret’s lingerie catalog while she was still a minor. It goes without saying that it was controversial, but it also launched her career as a high-end fashion model. Now, at the height of her career, pick any high end brand you can think of and chances are she’s done it, along with the SI swimsuit edition.
In 2008, she also made her debut on the Forbes Top Earning Model List at number 11 by raking in $3 million. Not bad for a twice divorced and currently single mom. Not bad at all.
