São Paulo, Brazil native Vanessa M was discovered in her hometown while shopping with her mother at age 17.
She received her big break upon opening the Alexandre Herchcovitch collection during Paris Fashion Week; the designer even cited Vanessa as a muse! She also appeared in the collections of Jeremy Scott, in campaigns for Benetton, and editorial features in the international editions of Elle.
Known for her laid-back, bohemian style and approach to beauty, Vanessa has garnered a cult following not dissimilar from an Indi-rock princess. She spends her free-time in vintage shops, and learning to cut hair.
