Hello World of Models, I´m Mayara Fonseca, 20 years old, a brazilian model. I was born in Sorocaba, São Paulo. I live with my parents and a brother. I love pets. I have 2 dogs, a cat and a turtle. I love to work out, travel, meet people, cultures, places around. parties, chocolate. I enjoy living life to the fullest!
Actually, i decided become a model when i was 14. I did my first book, just because I always loved taking pictures. And in that shooting, all the team (photographer, makeup artist, stylist) asked me, why I wasn´t a model, so I really decided to give it a try!
In my first shooting I was really nervous, but it was an amazing experience. I loved being part of it. After that i realise, that I really could do it.
For me, the best thing about modeling, is to be able to work with yourself, to do my best in the jobs and have fun
Posing to photographers: sharing cool experiences
It´s always cool working with photographers that enjoy discussing their ideas with models and share their experiences before the shooting.
I usually do some poses in front of mirror and listen some music and I start to dance to feel in the mood before they start clicking. It helps me a lot! I haven´t posed naked yet, but who knows, in a future I must try it hahahah. I don´t have problems with that since I´m surrounded with a professional team.
Love them since my first shows!!! Moschino in Milano was super cute, lovely clothes, totally different of all jobs I´ve done it before. I also did a show for an indian jewerly designer named Zoya, a big brand there.
when I´m walking down the catwalk I feel myself confident, a powerful woman and everything gonna be good!
A funny backstage story happened when I was in Mumbai, India. All models were doing hair and make up for the show, and they asked us what we wanted to eat, so we asked for a salad. When the food arrived, there were some pizzas for the team and we ate them all. The team looked at us so impressed ” how models could eat so much !!!” hahahahahaha.
Female models x Male models
Altough female models still rule this business, I feel male models are getting the same exposure as female models do. Concerning black models, they are being accepted, and have a good market for them in Brazil too.
Mayara, a fashionista?
I always follow the news on fashion brands and style, so I consider myself a fashionista. When I´m not working as a model, i like to wear a casual, simple and comfortable clothes.
Imagine u famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
Wow, i’d be very happy to see that my job makes people recognize me, makes me popular and famous. It´s kinda of a of a dream coming true. Hopefully getting there someday hahaha
On show business
I think it´s is very helpful nowadays. Show biz makes the world go round!
Loving X Dating

Super powers and Super heroes
Flying, for sure. I love being in the sky, I love to see the beautiful clouds, i love be free.
My favorite superheroes? First off, God and Mom
The dumbest think you’ve ever heard a model say
”A great way to lose weight is only drinking diet coke when feels hungry”
Having fun, enjoying life
I love parties, great musics. I love being with my friends, if Im with them, every place is a good place to enjoy and have fun!

Earliest childhood memory
When I was playing with my brother and we decided be a hair stylist, but he cut my hair for real. I cried so much for days hahaha

An unforgettable moment
My first trip to Milano and when I arrived there I saw Duomo Cathedral for the first time in my life. I felt blessed and speechless! Main Motto:
“Love to live and live to love”
