Meet the model Raika Tavares

04 ago, 2013

Hello everyone, my name is Raika Tavares, I was born in the city of Cuiabá, MT, shortly after my parents moved to Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, where I grew up, so I consider myself a “mineirinha” :).

Music is my first passion, perhaps because my father was a musician and teacher of musical instruments I’ve grown up with this taste for music.

Extreme sports fascinate me, I am very busy, and I love the adrenaline, my dream is to do bungee jump, I hope one day I will realize it:)

Modeling: a dream coming true

I always liked to shoot, I used to look at the magazines and fashion sites, so I went to Belo Horizonte to pursue this career and 2 buddies of mine (Frank and Juliana), introduced me to a modeling agency. Then I started working as a model.

I love traveling and when I was working in Milan, I had the opportunity to visit Venice (which was my dream to know it), thanks to fashion

Posing to photographers: Music and fun!

Shooting for me is always fun, I love what I do whenever I hear music (of course lol), It makes me more comfortable and I also always try to fit in with the whole team because it is essential for a good result.

I´ve met many people as makeup artists, stylists and photographers who will forever be in my life. That´s a great and unforgettable teamwork!

Female models x Male models

Men are getting more exposure nowadays, but I think we have a great market for everyone (male and female models)

I love Andrej Pejic´s pics the female ones, the divas Gisele and Naomi Campbell.

Raika´s style

A fashionista?

I love shoes, clothes, bags, fashion websites and more. When I am in daily activities, I wear a bit of everything. It depends on my mood and the occasion,  but I love denim shorts and hats, I use them whenever I can.

Imagine u a famous surrounded by a huge crowd!

I do not know what I would do because it never happened it :) But whenever somebody meets me up in the streets or facebook and says he/she knows me because they saw a picture of mine, it´s always a grateful surprise :)
