Oliveira in one sentence – Raica is a gorgeous Brazilian brunette with long perfect legs and a beautiful smile.
Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a model.
Education is very important. Yes, it is great t be beautiful but any physical beauty fades away quite quickly if there is no inner beauty to supports it.
Raica was discovered by Sergio Mattos, the same agent who discovered the supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
In 1999, Oliveira (only 15 at the time) won the Elite Model Look contest in Brazil. She was the number one among the 30,000 beautiful girls.
Raica was named “The Sensation” at the 1999 fall fashion shows in Paris and Milan.
During her long and very successful modeling career, Raica had modeled for a number of major fashion brands and designers including Victoria’s Sectrets, La Perla, Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, etc.
In 2006 she had joined the ranks of supermodels charging over $30,000 for a fashion show.
In November 2010 Oliveira became the new face of lingerie brand Ultimo replacing Kelly Brook.
She is fluent in Portuguese, English, French, Spanish and Italian.
After she retires from working as the full time model she plans on studying philosophy at the university.
Raica is a big animal lover – she has eight dogs and is a vegetarian.
The song that reminds her of her first kiss is November Rain, Guns N’ Roses.
Always remember that true beauty comes from within.
