Maria Izabel Goulart Dourado (born October 23, 1984) is a Brazilian model.             
She is best known as one of Victoria's Secret Angels.                                 
Goulart was born on October 23, 1984 in Sao Carlos, Sao Paulo, Brazil. She is of       
Italian-Brazilian descent. She has four brothers and one sister. Goulart once         
said that "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."                   
Goulart has stated that school was a particularly rough time, 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.                                                           
During Goulart's first ever fashion show appearance, she experienced a wardrobe       
malfunction. The unfortunate incident made many Brazilian newspapers and remains       
her most embarrassing moment. She was able to put her rocky start behind her and       
returned to the runway to model collections for A-list designers such as Bill         
Blass, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, Jill Sander,         
Chanel, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren and Stella McCartney, among many others.           
She first appeared on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in the 2005 and made         
her Victoria's Secret Angels debut on 2006. She has also posed for photos with         
top photographers such as Terry Richardson, David Sims, Greg Kadel and Vincent         
Peters for such publications as French and Japanese Vogue, French magazine and         
Numero magazine.
