Ford Models Brazil recently announced that model, actress, Maria Helena Vianna, will be joining the agency…
“It was not an easy decision, I met with such amazing agencies. But, after taking time to reflect on the future of my career, I feel that Ford will present me with the best opportunities to accomplish my goals”, said Vianna.
Ford Models Brazil Director, Marco Aurelio Casal de Rey, stated, “Ford Models Brazil is extremely happy to represent Maria Helena in Brazil, helping complement the amazing work she has been doing in the United States”.
Discovered in the famed Elite Model Look contest, Maria Helena began her career in Sao Paulo, Brazil, shooting editorials for Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and landing her first cover all before turning 17.
After taking a hiatus to raise her two children, she announced her comeback to modeling and acting this year, at a time when being a super model and a super mom go hand in hand. Her recent works include her first Victoria’s Secret job, an editorial for L’Officiel Magazine, appearances in Sex and the City 2, in the film’s red carpet scene, and the 30 Rock season finale, alongside actor, Matt Damon. She has also recently appeared in CBS’s The Good Wife, HBO’s Bored to Death, Joshua Radin’s latest music video, “Brand New Day”, a Bavaria commercial with Iron Man2 star, Mickey Rourke, and a commercial for Trumark Financial in which she is featured. Fashion News Live recently announced that Maria Helena will be co-hosting IMG Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York in September.
“Ford’s Women and TV Divisions will give me the additional exposure I am looking for by working the Brazilian market as well as here, as both model and actress”, she added. Until she finalizes her new New York agency, Vianna Media Group will be her temporary representation.
