Early life and discovery

Fontana was born in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil. In 1996 she made it to the finals of the Elite Model Look when she was just 13 and in the following year she moved from South Brazil to Milan, Italy, to start her modelling career.[2]


In 1999, at the age of 16, she appeared in the Victoria's Secret lingerie catalogue. The shoot caused controversy, as Victoria's Secret stated that they would not use girls younger than 21. Soon after the Victoria's Secret shoot, she was signed by Versace, Ralph Lauren and Valentino.[3]

Since 1999 she has modeled for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Marie Claire, ELLE, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Numéro, i-D, Arena and many others.[3]

Fontana has been the face of a variety of advertising campaigns including Armani Jeans, Chanel, Colcci, Disritmia, Emporio Armani, Enrique Martinez, Helena Rubinstein, Hugo Boss, Hussein Chalayan, Massimo Dutti, M. Officer, Nicole Farhi, Oscar de la Renta, Peter Hahn, Philips, Ralph Lauren, Revlon, Roberto Cavalli, Rosa Chá, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tommy Hilfiger, Triton, Valentino, Versace, Victoria's Secret, Vivara and others.[3]

Currently Isabeli can be seen in the F/W campaigns for Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino & H&M [4].

Isabeli is the current face of Viktor & Rolf's fragrance Flowerbomb.

In 2008, she made her debut on the Forbes The World's 15 Top-Earning Models list at place 11, having earned $3 million.[5]
