The fashion world fell in love with the natural Brazilian beauty Fernanda Tavares when her modelling career went international at the end of the 1990s. Ever since Mario Testino shot her for the French edition of Vogue, Fernanda’s face has graced the cover of all the usual suspects: Cosmopolitan, Elle, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar…
Throughout the Nineties, she fronted campaigns for Dolce&Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Versace. And for six years, held the coveted position of spokesperson for L’Oréal.
She’s walked the catwalk with some of the world’s greatest designers and been snapped by some of the world’s greatest photographers. But in 2007, at the height of a hugely successful modelling career, she stepped out to get married and have children. Now she’s back with a mission.
I catch up with Fernanda in the fancy library of the Nomad Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Warm, friendly, curious and smart, she knows what she wants and – more beautiful than ever – it seems somehow she never really went away.
