Who is the most famous Brazilian model? Gisele Bundchen is probably the first that comes to mind. However, in the constellation there’s room for one more star, her name is Carol Trentini.
Born and raised in Panambi (Rio Grande do Sul), Carol began her career at 14 when she was discovered by Dilson Stein, the same who scouted Gisele Bundchen. It didn’t take long before the beautiful model moved to São Paulo, the brazilian capital of fashion, and from there on to the international catwalks.
Carol’s debut to success was when she first worked for designer Marc Jacobs. Thwen in 2007 she was on the cover of Vogue magazine along with models Doutzen Kroes, Jessica Stam, Raquel Zimmermann, Agyness Deyn, Coco Rocha, Hilary Rhoda, Chanel Iman and Lily Donaldson, showing a new generation of super models.
Among her recent catwalks are Louis Vuitton, Versace, Chanel, Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Victoria’s Secret and Balenciaga. But arguably her most important achievement is as a mother: on the 9th of August 2013 Carol gave birth to her first child, Bento.
