Aline Weber knew nothing about fashion growing up. The leggy beauty was born in Seara Santa Catarina, a Brazilian countryside town and common last-stop for German emigrants, where the village of only 5,000 had access to three clothing stores. Consequently, Aline and her younger sister's early fashion moments consisted exclusively of t-shirts, jeans and their mother's handmade clothing. "Nobody even knew who Calvin Klein was," Aline told Vogue.com. Townspeople recognized her family for the height of the two daughters, and Aline was discovered at her father's grocery store after a photographer sent snaps to local agencies. Once she was signed, she moved to Sao Paulo at age 14 and began studying up on her new world.
Aline quickly transformed from a fashion industry apprentice into one of the most promising Brazilian faces. She made her international debut at the spring 2006 New York Fashion Week walking for Tommy Hilfiger and Jenni Kayne. Her following print career began primarily in Brazil, snagging covers of the country's most honored titles including multiple editions of Vogue Brasil, Elle Brazil, Marie Claire Brazil and L'Officiel Brasil many of which were photographed by revered Brazilian photographer, Gui Paganini. Aline has also appeared in countless editorials for international Vogue titles (Russia, China, Thailand, Mexico, Ukraine, Netherlands and British), Harper's Bazaar, Numero, Self-Service, DuJour, Interview and more.
To date, Aline has walked over 100 shows and opened and closed for top design houses including Shiatzy Chen, Daks, Balenciaga, and Requiem. Additional, select shows include Hugo Boss, Jason Wu, Altuzarra, Tom Ford, Helmut Lang, Derek Lam, Alexander Wang and Rodarte. She has appeared in ad campaigns for Dolce & Gabanna, Moschino, Just Cavalli, Saint Laurent and droves of other brands.
In 2009, the Brigitte Bardot doppelganger channeled the iconic model in Tom Ford's feature film "A Single Man". Aline appears alongside Colin Firth and Julianne Moore as a student named "Lois". She also appeared with Kanye West in Barnaby Roper's 2012 short film for Anja Rubik's 25 Magazine.
