I have a hard time finding high boots that go up to your knee, because of the shape of my calves.
In my 20s, I wanted to be hot; now I want to be healthy.
I respect marriage, and I think it’s beautiful that people do it. But for me, more important than anything is having a peaceful life and a peaceful home.
When I was a kid, I wanted a Chanel bob and bangs. My mom said no. I went to the salon anyway, and they said, ‘No way – we are not going to do that to your hair.’ So I did it myself. Big mistake. Instead of my bangs going down straight, they were sticking up like a cat. It was horrible.
Somebody showed me a picture of some event I went to back in the day, and I was really going heavy on the turquoise jewelry, and it was not good. I was like, ‘OK, I guess that was a phase that needed to happen.’
I was never the girl that grew up saying I want to get married. I actually told my parents to not expect me to get married.
A lot of people, sometimes they’re so stuck on, ‘I gotta get married, I gotta get married.’ They forget that the really important thing is to have a healthy home, a healthy family, a healthy environment for your kids and to have everything going in a good, peaceful way.
I’m definitely a vintage collector. I have a wardrobe of core basics that I like to spice up with different colors, new accessories, and I love to try on new things to invite something different. I find, with every new stage of my life, my self-image shifts with new duties and responsibilities, and so does my fashion style.
Before a shoot, I’ll watch what I eat. During the shoot, I watch what I eat. Afterwards, the first thing I do is go have a steak and French fries.
I think the only time that I worry about looking good is on the red carpet.
I love wearing my hair curly, but turning the curling iron all the way up creates curls that look really made up and artificial.
My waist used to be tiny. I just saw a picture of Miley Cyrus with a little crop top and low pants, and I’m like, ‘That was me growing up in Brazil!’ I had the typical model body, but after babies, it changed. I look more like a woman.
Women inspire me. Women in the airports, around the country in different cities, destinations around the world, inspire me with the way they express their individuality. I love watching women and discovering all the ways each person uses a color, pattern, a style, even a lipstick color. I’m a people watcher.
Embrace yourself and do what you can to look and feel your best. Don’t put on so many fashion trends that create a ridiculous style statement. Pick and choose what feels good, and flatters your own body.
