Early life and career

Goulart was born on October 23, 1984 in S√£o Carlos, S√£o Paulo, Brazil. She is of Italian descent and has four brothers and one sister. Goulart once said "the hardest part about being an Angel is I spend time away from my mom's food and away from my home with my five brothers and sister."[2] School was a particularly rough time for Goulart, as she was made fun of for her skinny build, and was even called names such as "giraffe".[3]

While shopping for groceries with her mother at age 14, a hairstylist suggested that she should become a model. She moved to the state's capital S√£o Paulo and started modeling.[4]

Modeling career

During Goulart's first ever fashion show appearance, she experienced a wardrobe malfunction when her top fell open. The unfortunate incident made many Brazilian newspapers and remains her most embarrassing moment. She was able to put her rocky start behind her and returned to the runway to model collections for A-list designers such as Bill Blass, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, Jill Sander, Chanel, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren and Stella McCartney, among many others.[5] Goulart has also modeled for H&M, Express, Neiman Marcus, Missoni and Dsquared.

She first appeared in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2005, the year she was contracted as an Angel. Although she is no longer an Angel, Goulart walked in the 2008 and 2009 Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows. She has shot for top photographers such as Terry Richardson, David Sims, Greg Kadel, and Vincent Peters for such publications as French and Japanese Vogue, French magazine, and Numero. She was replaced by Rianne ten Haken as the face of Armani Exchange. Goulart can be seen in the fall 2009 H&M campaign.

Personal life

Goulart was reportedly engaged to businessman Marcelo Costa on August 2006.[6][7] Although she mentioned being single during a February 2008 interview on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, she stated she was still with Costa in an interview for GQ Italia, November 2009.

Goulart, whose brother has type 1 diabetes,[8] does charitable work, helping hospitals in her native Brazil to raise money to provide free insulin for diabetic children in need. She also has taken an active role with the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) at the University of Miami, a recognized leader in cure-focused research. In 2009, Goulart became the DRI's international ambassador and in that role helps to promote the work of the DRI throughout her travels.[8]

Notable appearances

  • During an appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in May 2006, O'Brien asked, "What kind of guy do you look for?", and Goulart simply replied "You."
  • On February 28, 2007, on a follow-up appearance on the show, O'Brien asked to dance with her, and Goulart then suggested dinner after the show. She mentioned that, "In Brazil we have a saying - You're married, but you're not dead."
  • Goulart appeared again on Late Night, this time on February 7, 2008. She brought O'Brien a Valentine's Day gift, which was later given away to an audience member, who ran with him to the backstage, for taking a good picture of O'Brien and Brian Williams. In the episode, she mentioned that she learned English by watching Woody Woodpecker cartoons.
  • Goulart appeared in an episode of Two And A Half Men.[9]
  • She made a guest appearance in the thirteenth episode of season 3 of Entourage alongside fellow Angel Alessandra Ambrosio.
