This year Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro (Women) is among Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s rookie class for the 2017 swimsuit issue alongside with Bianca Balti, Kellly Gale, Myla Dalbesio, Vita Sidorkina, Danielle Herrington, Bianca Balti and Mia Kang.
The theme of this year’s edition is diversity, with the tagline: “Every body, Every age, Every beautiful.” Beautiful Lais posed under the lens of James Macari in the beautiful locations of Sumba Island.
The 26-year-old beauty is native of rural Miguel Alves, Brazil and she began modeling in 2009. Her first magazine appearance was in the Brazilian version of ELLE, before moving to New York City in 2010.
She has been building her impressive modelling career since she was 18-years-old, a year after giving birth to her first child, son Alexander. Through the years, she has walked the runway for many world’s top designers and fashion houses — Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Balmain, Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabanna.
Today Lais is one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels and she is dating American professional basketball player Jared Homan. We cannot get enough of seeing their romantic moments on her official Instagram.
