With exotic features from her Brazilian lineage, it was destiny that Bruna Tenorio would become a major player in the modeling industry. The dark haired beauty, who hails from Maceio, Alagoas, was born on June 27, 1989 and now provides a unique and distinctive look to the fashion industry that is quite obviously unparalleled.
When she was 17 and still in school, a model scout who was on vacation in her hometown approached Bruna. He asked if she had aspirations to become a model – which of course she did – and the dream began. Once Bruna finished school, she moved to Sao Paolo and shortly thereafter found herself in New York City.
Bruna’s premiere moment on the runway came thanks to the Paris and Milan shows during the September 2008 season, with appearances on the catwalk for Chanel, Christian Dior, and Dolce & Gabbana. From there, her undeniable beauty caught the attention of both casting directors and designers, leading to campaigns for Anna Sui, D&G, and Akris to name just a few. She’s graced the pages of Italian Vogue, Brazilian Vogue, Chinese Vogue, L’Officiel, Allure, and Brazilian Elle while lavishing designers including Jean Paul Gaultier, Zac Posen, Giorgio Armani, Vera Wang, and Dolce & Gabbana with her walk.
Though she claims her style is very simple, she accents pieces from favorite designer, Ralph Lauren, with feminine and classic touches.
