Hello my World of Models family, here we are again and I´m very excited for this brand new year! The Olympic games is coming soon in London and the next one will be in my country Brazil zil zil (We´ll be waiting for you in 2016 folks!).

So, what´s their opinions about the fashion world and how do they feel posing to the lens of a photographer? Join us in this new series. In my edition, I interviewed one of the amazing brazilian swimmers, Guilherme Guido. Enjoy it family!

Ed, the brazilian editor

Ladies and gentlemen, there comes Guilherme!

Working with photographer Gui Paganini was a cool experience. I really wasn´t nervous at all. I just let it flows!

Believe  me folks, I use to be more nervous in a swmimming competiion lol! The pics were taken in Ana Paula Junqueira´s house in São Paulo in Jardins area. Along with me, the olympic swimmer Gabriel Mangabeira and model Talytha Pugliese.


I was born in Limeira, a very quiet brazilian city, located in the state of São Paulo. I had an amazing childhood playing soccer barefoot with my buddies in the streets and my parents still live there. I usually visit them once a month.

His impressions on fashion world

I love to swim. I would never leave swimming to become a model, but I like this world and whenever I can I try to do some fashion editorials as you guys see here. It was taken by the photographer Gui Paganini for the editorial “In the blues”, published at M&Guia mag.

A funny backstage´s moment? Yup yup. I was wearing myswimsuit in one of the photos and I had to do a weird position, and guess what? The swimsuit ripped and i had to go running to men´s room covering my body with both of my hands lol

Since I´m always training, it helps me a lot to be on shape all the time, so I didn´t need to do much previous preparation. I actually like this life style, I also have a lot of friends doing it, so it was really cool!

Show business, Fame, Success, Fans and the most important things for his life

You have to do what makes you happy. Fame and success will come if you do what you like with passion and professionalism.

Fans following my activities as a professional swimmer is a recognition of hard work, focus and as I told you before, professionalism. And it always come to my mind all those nights I had to sleep early for a hard training the next day, so I´m really grateful for all my brazilian fans! Just imagine me surrounded by a huge crowd…hmmmmmm iIwould try to get out of there without being rude asap.

5 important things in my life

Sports – I can´t live without it, even when I am in vacations. Besides swimming, I enjoy surfing
Family  – my support for everything
Friends – Can you live in this huge world without them?
Music  – Just love it! I listen music all the time
Coffee – Definitely really important for me, it makes me wake up everyday and go to the swimming pool at 6 am. lol
