I was trying to stray from the obvious with this weekly model business. Bringing to surface new faces of fashion, but who can deny this girl the title?
Raquel Zimmerman claimed the title of # 1 international model from Dec. 2007 to Feb. 2010. She was ranked # 13 of top models of all time. Born May 6th, 1983 in Retiro Do Sul, Zimmerman was discovered by a scouting agency in Porto Alegre, Brazil at age 14. She quickly moved from Brazil to Japan then to Paris. She graced the cover of Vogue Italia in Sept. of 2000 as her first cover shoot. She’s worked for top designers as Balenciaga, Chanel, Chole, CK by Calvin Klien, Fendi, H&M, Boss… ect.
Zimmermann appears regularly in American Vogue, Italia Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazar, POP, and Self Service magazines. She walked in the 2002, 2005, and 2006 Victoria Secret Fashion shows. She was also featured in American Vogue’s “New Supermodel” issue alongside many other newly top ranking beauties.
Raquel Zimmerman can be seen in the first ever Gucci commercial for their fragrance directed by David Lynch. She is married to photographer Ruy Sardez Blanco and is currently living in New York
