Izabel Goulart is a Brazilian model. She is best known as one of the Victoria's Secret Angels from 2005 to 2008 and for her work with Armani Exchange.

Goulart was born on October 23, 1984 in São Carlos, São 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." 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".

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 São Paulo and started modeling.

Although she's one of Brazil's top exports, Izabel's professional career got off to an inauspicious start when she experienced a wardrobe malfunction during her first runway show.

By 2005, Izabel's success on the catwalk prompted a move to the Big Apple, where she was instantly signed to a multiyear contract by Victoria's Secret and put on the catwalk with Gisèle Bündchen, Marisa Miller, Adriana Lima, Petra Nemcova, and Alessandra Ambrosio.

The Brazilian bombshell made her debut for the company later that year by modeling a bikini made out of candy at the 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. "It was so delicious," she says. "I was like talking to myself. I was like, ‘OK Izabel, if you be a good girl, don't let anything fall out, and if you don't fall you deserve to eat your outfit later on. And that's what I did. It was so sweet. It was so delicious."

In November of 2009, Izabel Goulart returned to the Victoria's Secret runway for the annual show, with head Angel Heidi Klum playing host.
