Ana Beatriz Barros is best known as a Victoria’s Secret angel, but the veteran model is a global brand. She shows why in a new photo spread for the Turkish edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
In a shoot titled “The Rose of Luxury,” Barros, 29, covers the November issue in a stunning elegant spread that features designers Stella McCartney, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton and others.
Photographer Koray Birand was behind the camera and fashion editor Mert Aslan handled styling.
Ali Yilanci styled Ana’s hair and Ali Riza Ozdemir highlighted Ana’s radiant cheekbones with her makeup.

Barros was 13 when she and her older sister, Patricia, were vacationing in Rio de Janeiro when they were spotted by a representative from Elite Model Management.
Even then she was tall and thin with perfect model proportions. Today, she’s just shy of six feet tall.
She finished second in the Elite Model Look contest in 1996, behind model Diana Kovalchuk.
That led to her first modeling contract with Guess? jeans in a campaign with Brazilian colleague Alessandra Ambrosio, who also has found fame with Victoria’ Secret.
Since then, Barros has modeled for a slew of top brands, from Christian Dior and Armani Jeans to Oakley, L’Oréal and Diesel.
She also appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue from 2002 through 2008.
