Born on 23rd October 1984 in Sao Carlos, Brazil, Izabel Goulart (full name: Maria Izabel Goulart Dourado) is a model who began her career while still in her teens. She is of 5.9 feet in height, and has an attractive personality with brown eyes and hair. Lets take a look into the bio of this famous model whose current boyfriend is Kevin Trapp, a German footballer.
Known best for being one of Victoria's Secret Angels (2005-2008) as well as her modeling works with Armani Exchange, Goulart was born in a family of 1 sister and 4 brothers, to parents who had Italian and Portuguese ancestry. She doesn't remember her school fondly, since it must have been hard for her to be called nicknames like “giraffe” due to her skinny body. But how close she is to her own family can be judged her statement that being a Victoria's Secret Angel was very difficult for her personally because she had to spend time away from her brothers and sisters.
Goulart caught the attention of a hairstylist while she and her mother once went groceries shopping when she was 14 years old. Moving to Sao Paulo, the state capital, Goulart debuted her modelling career and shortly moved afterwards to France where her career developed further. In August of 2001, she returned back to Sao Paulo and joined Success, her former agency. The person responsible for her launch into Brazilian fashion industry was Ney Alves, who is now currently Major Models Brazil's director. Goulart's first appearance in a fashion show was worth forgetting, as her clothing malfunctioned, and she rightly got over it rather than let that unfortunate experience wreck her career.
She took on the ramps to showcase the clothes designed by Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren, Alberta Ferretti, Roberto Cavalli, Bill Blass, Loewe, Dolce and Gabbana, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Isabel Marant, Givenchy, Altuzarra, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Balmain, Jil Sander, Chanel, Emilio Pucci, Valentino, Emanuel Ungaro, and many other prominent designers as well as fashion houses such as DSquared2 H&M, Neiman Marcus, Express and Missoni. Her appearances in fashion magazines and shows helped her popularity to rise, and some of them can be listed : Marie Claire – France (2005), Vogue – Brazil (2005), Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (2005, 2008 to 2015), three seasonal campaigns for A/X Armani Exchange (2008), GQ Mexico (2010), Vogue – Brazil (2010), a campaign for Avon (2010), the fall campaign of H&M (2009), Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (2011), Dolce & Gabbanna's Spring/Summer campaign (2011), Givenchy's Pre-Fall campaign (2011), 10th Anniversary Collection of Yamamay (2011), DKNY Jeans' Fall/Winter campaign (2011), cover of Elle Brasil (2011).
Goulart has been photographed by some of the best names in the industry: Terry Richardson, David Sims, Greg Kadel, Vincent Peters, Dusan Reljin, Mario Testino, etc for famous fashion magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, L'Officiel, Numero, and Allure. She also has a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, and was named by Glamour Mexico in 2010 the Best International top Model, so that gives a clue about how popular she might be. FHM magazine had named her one of the 100 Sexiest Women In The World in 2011. Her achievements are too many to mention here, but the ones listed above may give the reader a clue on how in-demand is she when it comes to fashion. Her salary per year is estimated to be $3.6 million, and her net worth is approximately $3 million. She must be taking much attention to her diet, as she still looks slim and attractive at the age of 32.
