Isabeli Bergossi Fontana (born July 4, 1983) is a Brazilian supermodel.
Fontana was born in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil. In 1996 she made it to the
finals of the Elite Model Look Contest when she was just 13. The
following year she moved from Brazil to Milan, Italy, to start her
modelling career. In 1999, at the age of 16, she appeared in the
Victoria's Secret lingerie catalogue. This created a huge controversy as
Victoria's Secret had earlier stated that its policy was not to sign
models younger than 21 years old. However, the publicity generated by
this proved beneficial to Fontana and she quickly rose to fame. Soon
after the Victoria's Secret shoot, she was signed by Versace, Ralph
Lauren and Valentino. She has modelled for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit
Issue, Marie Claire, ELLE and Vogue.
