"Gorgeous" is the first thing our editors said this morning when we read the news that top model Maria Borges is going to the be the new face of L'Oréal Paris. How on earth does she get that glow? Face oil? Good genetics? If anyone knows, please let us know. In the meantime, here's everything we know about this stunning woman.
Maria is quite the regular on the runway. She's been modeling ever since 2010 when she won the Elite Model Angola search. She made history back in 2015 for being the first model to ever walk the Victoria's Secret show with her natural hair. Oh and did we mention she has modeled for Chanel, Givenchy, and Balmain?
"I believe in the beauty of diversity and the empowering message that a girl who started from the bottom can be an international beauty symbol and be living proof that our dreams are valid, and the future ahead of us is bright," she said in a statement.
She's recently collaborated with L’Oréal Paris for a few ad spots, including the brand’s Hydra Genius serum and Infallible Lip Paints. But this is only the beginning–we're excited to see what else is in store for this inspiring woman!
