Within months of arriving in New York, Indiamara had already won over the industry with her impossibly wide-set eyes and doll-like face. In her debut season, the Brazilian beauty snagged a spot at two of New York Fashion Weeks most coveted shows: Rodarte and Marc Jacobs. No doubt a good luck charm for Mr. Jacobs, Indiamara was then handpicked to model in the designers section of the annual CFDA journal, shot by Slve Sundsb and styled by Lori Goldstein (he went on to win the top prize). Here, this one-to-watch, punk rock enthusiast, lets us in on her Lady Gaga-loving lifestyle filled with lots of gelato, sneakers instead of stilettos and a brand new iPad.
