Current city: New York

Favorite Animal: My two lovely dogs. I live for them! 
Hours of sleept: I'm a sleeper--8 hours and on weekends I splurge with 9 or 10.

Favorite teacher: The one and only Mrs. Barbacena--the first grade and unforgettable teacher in Brazil.

Body part: Hands. They are beautiful and useful. (I play the piano!) 
Tool: All my kitchen stuff - cooking is my passion
Cell phone parrier: AT&T but can't remember why I went with them.

Illicit Crush: Do I sound cheesy if I say George Clooney? (EDITOR'S NOTE: Nope!)  
What makes you jealous? I'm so not that type.

Best day of your life: In my modeling career, I guess the best day was when I learned I landed on the cover of French Vogue celebrating Brazil, my home country.
Dance: Tango. It's the most charming and engaging dance out there.
Monthly drying cleaning bill: Don't tell anyone, but after 10 years in NY, I could have bought a car or two!
