Ana Beatriz Barros Biography:
She was born in a small town of Itabira, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Later, her family moved to Rio de Janeiro, where she spent her childhood. She is of Portuguese and Spanish descent, and is the youngest of three sisters; Patricia and Malu (Maria Luisa). 

Barros and her older sister, Patricia (also a model), were walking on a Rio beach when they were spotted by a representative from Elite Model Management. Barros went to see Elite office in Rio and Sergio Mattos - art director of 40 Graus. They then encouraged Barros to participate in the Elite Model Look 1996, which she won. She subsequently competed for international Elite Model Look and placed second worldwide. Elite sent her portfolio, along with some recent Polaroid shots, to Guess? which led her to do the Millennium Guess? campaign along with her friend and fellow Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio. 
She has done advertisements not only for Guess? but also for Christian Dior, Armani jeans, Oakley, L'Oreal, Naf Naf, Diesel, Ermanno Scervino, Victoria's Secret, Chanel cosmetics, and Jennifer Lopez's JLO fashion line, among others. 
In 2004 Jennifer Lopez selected Barros to be the face of her new lingerie line, JLO Lingerie. Said Lopez, "I wanted someone young, sexy and urban, with a universal appeal." Barros has been in shows for the likes of Valentino, Missoni, Gucci, Christian Dior, Versace, Emporio Armani, BCBG, DKNY, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors and many more prestigious fashion houses. 

She has been on numerous covers of magazines such as Glamour, Vogue, Marie Claire, Allure; Brazilian magazines such as Capricho and Audi magazine, W, ELLE to name a few. Barros appeared six times on Sports Illustrated in the Swimsuit Issue (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007). 

She currently lives in New York but is always traveling. She also has an apartment in Brazil and very often visits her family. After a hard day of work, she loves to go bicycle riding or going to the beach. She also likes to read about art, especially about painting.
