  5. claire thomas says:

    She obviously has African ancestry+other

  6. josephmoore77777 says:

    why do people compare other models with one another the only thing they have in common is their gorgeous faces and tall slender bodys and comparisons get really annoying and boring

  7. dimitrulii says:

    she is soooooooooooooooooo beautifulllll!

  8. BetweenOurLungs0 says:

    could you stop being so offending it’s not your fault when you were born with a big head and i think girls with a round face can be beautiful aswell. so adriana lima is great!

  9. SaseumiSunnyS2s2 says:

    she looks like a mix of Eurasian beauty but with a Latina spice mixed into it.
    personally did you guys know that her chin is actually considered hmmm. beautiful? because some celebs actually add that line in the middle of their chin to make them look cuter or something, well thats what my mom said. xD

  10. 21350ctw says:

    Aww 😮 That other girl at 0:56 must feel like shit :/ having to whip her dress like a maid :/

    Kendall Jenner resembles her a lot

  14. autoneto says:

    When you think that Brazil has run out of bombshells like Gisele, Adriana, Alessandra, Caroline, here comes another ones like Lizalla, Lais Ribeiro, Barbara Fialho. It will never end!

  15. MrWhokilledkenny says:

    I Don’t know if i should make comments in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd person…thats deep and something to think about no?

  16. JonJury says:

    “feminine yet sexy energy”…wtf is that guy talking about?? As though they contradict. Smh.

  17. MrKrav3r says:

    She is gorgeous there’s no doubt about that

  18. leoniddead says:

    her eyes are so super sparkling!!! she’s amazing.. I don’t understand how some people can always find things to complain about beautiful women like her..things like: “her chin is like this and thats ugly” as if perfection was pure boringness. she has a super interesting face. and also she’s right saying that beauty comes from the inside.. look around you. a lot of people would appear more beautiful to people if they would have this positive energy inside and smile a little more.

  27. rianrobot says:

    the makeup is used to define her strong features like that ON PURPOSE & people can’t help the way they look or the shape of their chin. at least she’s not afraid to show herself unlike you; and many people would beg to differ about her beauty and don’t have to take their insecurities with themselves out on SUPERMODELS.. -_-; fail.
