VIDEO: Isabeli Fontana on being the new face of MANGO!

20 May 2011

Before we got partying with Kate Moss in Paris on Tuesday night, Grazia Daily grabbed five with the inimitable Isabeli Fontana. The 27-year-old model, who began her career as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, provided a triumphant finale at the catwalk show for Mango's A/W '11 collection, wearing a floaty polka-dot dress looped through a rock-chick chain.

And you can expect to see more of her Brazilian charms coming to a high-street near you because Mango have just announced that Isabeli is their new face, bringing the 'Era of the Model', as she calls it, back to the Spanish powerhouse following stints from Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson. Here's a first look:

You may recognise Isabeli's impossibly lithe limbs from Dolce & Gabbana's current ad, where she poses alongside Alessandra Ambrosio in a communal bathhouse and she's scooping up a trillion star appearances for the A/W'11 campaigns, from Escada to Donna Karan.

So to hear about her rock'n'roll style, the one person she imagines when posing, and why she likes er, 'weird stuff', click play below for our Fontana soundbites. We LOVE.
