Following in the footsteps of fellow Brazilian models like Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima, Isabeli Fontana, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Ana Beatriz Barros, Cindy Mello is the latest Latino beauty looking to become the next big thing on the runway. Unlike those that came before her, however, Mello has social media to thank for getting her where she is today, as she hopes to one day become as big a personality as those mentioned above. Read on to find out more about her career and what she has been able to achieve so far.
Cindy Mello’s Biography
Cindy Mello was welcomed into the world on the 2nd of March, 1995, in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Details about her family background and the identities of her parents are not known to the public as the model never discusses them on her social media account. It is further not clear how many siblings she has, although it is public knowledge that she has an older brother named Cassio Mello.
The earliest available information about Cindy Mello was when she began making strides in having a modeling career in 2011. Around this time, she began attending casting calls and appearing in photo shoots as she became somewhat famous for her outgoing personality. She further used social media to make sure she stayed relevant, all of which culminated in helping her get her first big breakthrough – an endorsement campaign for sportswear line Adidas.
Other Facts about the Fashion Model and Social Media Star
While Cindy Mello has publicly identified actor Bradley Cooper as her celebrity crush, their paths do not seem to have crossed. She has instead been linked to fellow model Ryan Frederick, whom she has collaborated with on a couple of modeling projects.
Details of the exact timeline of the couple’s relationship are not known. It is only known that the pair has been together for a while now and that they are not shy of flaunting their love on their respective social media accounts, as they frequently share photos of themselves kissing and cuddling.
Unlike his significant other, Frederick was born in the United States, Seattle Washington to be exact. He was, however, raised in Holmdel, New Jersey and now calls New York City his home. As the story goes, he decided to become a model after a photographer who was taking his family’s Christmas card told him to consider it as a career.
Cindy Mello has an impressive height of 5 feet 8 inches (173 cm) and her weight is stated to be 54 kg (119 lbs). The slim-bodied model whose distinctive features include dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, full lips, and a lithe figure, maintains her body by regularly going to the gym. New York City-based trainer Rogerio Kowlessar is said to be the one that advised her on the correct workout regime she should follow, which includes toning the core, strengthening the lower body, and boxing.
Her body measurements are further said to be 33-23-35 inches while her shoe size is 6 (US) or 36.5 (EU) or 3.5 (UK).
Social Media Presence
It would not be out of place to say that Cindy Mello rose to fame thanks to the fact that she was able to share lingerie and bikini photos of herself on Instagram. She has since been able to build a huge social media following, with over eight hundred and seventy-one thousand followers, and counting, on her account (cindymello) on the photo-sharing app Instagram.
Cindy Mello is represented by Ford Models in New York and Brasil, Premier Model Management in London, and VDM Model Management in Amsterdam. Some of the publications she has featured in include Sports Illustrated, GQ, and Maxim. In 2017, she notably joined high profile models like compatriot Barbara Fialho, Shanina Shaik, Caroline Kelley, and Hilary Rhoda to audition for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Using her strong social media following, Mello has been able to promote a number of products and brands like MVMT Watches, fashion and cosmetic company ASOS, fashion line Missguided (appeared in a campaign with legendary actress and model Pamela Anderson), and sportswear company Adidas.
