Paolla Bitencourt Rahmeier started early by 15, the Brazilian beauty had a signed contract with IMG in NY, Milan and Paris, and was already being hailed by fashion insiders as a supermodel-in-the-making. With her strong gaze, full pout and tousled locks, Paolla is a throwback to the glamour and excess of the ’80s. But the hardworking teen is proving to be quite versatile in addition to her bombshell appeal, shes also getting noticed for her naturally fresh-faced beauty, which got her booked as one of the faces of Benettons Fall 2010 ad campaign, shot by Josh Olins. Here, Paolla reveals her current obsessions (career and Balenciaga boots), future goals (Francisco Costa, are you listening?), and the fun fitness routine that keeps her in shape.
