“I am very grateful for everything I’ve lived and learned along the way. My next step is to implement a social project to help young people in the community where I grew up”declared Nalu.
Earlier this year, the model caught Kanye West’s attention because of her look. “I was at Kendall Jenner’s party at Nice Guy in Los Angeles. At one point, Kanye approached me smiling and said, ‘I love your look. I love it so much!’ called the assistant, asking her to get my contact as he was interested in doing future work with me in fashion”, said.
Brazilian models have always been in great demand for underwear brands, an example is the Victoria’s Secret Angels, such as Gisele Bündchen, Alessandra Ambrósio and Adriana Lima. And now it’s Juliana Nalú’s turn to shine as a new Brazilian face.
