There are a few countries that are known for producing the most enticing and attractive models. Some of these nations include Venezuela, Netherlands and of course, the country currently hosting the 2014 Soccer World Cup, Brazil. In honor of the 32 nations currently giving their all to outmatch their opponents on the soccer field, we composed a list of 10 of the hottest models from Brazil to give you some eye candy to pass the time in between all the hectic matches. Enjoy!
10 Adriana Lima
Most men and women will agree without hesitation that Adriana Lima is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Hailing from Salvador Bahia in Brazil, she has been modeling since the age of 15, and has been a Victoria Secret Model since 2000. In the past, she has dated rockstars like Lenny Kravitz and was married in 2009 to professional basketball player, Marko Jaric. The couple have two beautiful daughters together but they were recently separated earlier this year. Oh and if you think at the age of 33, her beauty has diminished at all, think again. Just Google her in the new Kia commercials for the World Cup 2014, and you will surely find yourself mesmerized by her severe “hotness.”
9 Alessandra Ambrosio
33-yr-old Ambrosio hails from Erechim, Brazil. She has been modeling since the age of 12 and has been the face of huge fashion brands like Next and Victoria’s Secret. Actually, in 2004, she was picked to be the face of Victoria’s Secret’s PINK line. Other major fashion moments in her life include starring in a steamy denim ad with Ashton Kutcher for the Brazilian brand Colcci and also appearing in the famed Pirelli calendar. She has a very sophisticated look that with an exotic edge – and that combination has helped her earn several millions in her very lucrative career.

6 Jeisa Chiminazzo
Jeissa is another stunning model from Brazil. She is currently 29-yrs-old and has been modeling since the age of 13. She has appeared on the covers of several international editions of Vogue, as well as Elle and Marie Claire. She has also featured in huge campaigns for major fashion brands like La Perla, Clavin Klein, Hermes and Karl Lagerfeld.

She married British entrepreneur Oliver Ripley last year in a lavish 3-day event that took place on the lovely Lake Como in Italy.
5 Daniela Freitas
27-yr-old model Daniela Freitas was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil – a city known for producing some of the most beautiful people in the world. She has appeared on the cover of Elle magazine’s foreign editions (Belgium, Brazil France) and she has also been on the cover of Glamor Italy. She also appeared in ad campaigns for fashion brands like Chrome Hearts, Custo Barcelona and Report Footwear.
4 Gisele Bundchen
Now of course you didn’t think we would compile a list of the hottest Brazilian women without talking about Queen Gisele, one of the most powerful women in fashion. Her whole life seems to be a fairy tale; she has the flawless looks, she is extremely successful in her modeling career and her guy is the ever-youthful and skilled quarterback of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady. She is certainly living a very charmed life, and for all of you who might be a little green with envy, take this as consolation; she probably has a bad hair day once every five years.
3 Juliana Martins
There must be something in the Brazilian water that produces so many sexy women. Perhaps it’s the same thing in their water that makes them such good soccer players. The next beauty on our list is the scorching hot Juliana Martins who has been described in the past as the Brazilian Cindy Crawford. She has been modeling since the age of 13, and over the years, she has lent her looks to respected fashion brands like Ralph Lauren, Armani, Blumarine and Emmanuel Ungaro. She also appeared in the 2003 Swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.
2 Ana Beatriz Barros
When it comes to the correlation of gene mix and beauty, it seems like the operating rule is that more is better. Barros hails from the small town of Itabira in Brasil and is of Portuguese, Spanish and Italian ancestry. She was discovered at the young age of 13, and her lovely figure has appeared on the covers of magazines like Glamour, Vogue and Marie Claire. She was also a mainstay in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue from 2002-08. Ana Beatriz is also a hit on the fashion runway and she has been booked to walk shows for Armani, BCBG, Michael Kors, Valentino and Missoni.
1 Raquel Zimmermann
Of all the models featured in this list, Zimmermann is the one who has probably had international success matching that of Gisele. She was discovered at the young age of 14, and already started booking gigs in Japan and Paris. Whilst still in her teens, she scored the cover for Vogue Italia, and over the years, she has notched covers with V Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue USA. Her unique looks come from her German and Portuguese lineage and you’ll be surprised to find out that she is a big believer in transcendental meditation.
