This Brazilian supermodel started her glorious career in 1999. At the age of 16, she appeared in the Victoria’s Secret lingerie catalogue. This created a huge controversy as Victoria’s Secret had earlier stated that its policy was not to sign models younger than 21 years old. However, the publicity generated by this proved beneficial to Fontana and she quickly rose to fame. In 2008, she made her debut on the Forbes The World’s 15 Top-Earning Models list at place 11, having earned $3 million.
