Behind The Scenes Of Our Water Issue Cover Shoot With Brazilian-American Actress Gabriela Dias
Gabriela Dias hops from the dock at Old Port Cove Marina onto â€śThe Maddie J,â€ť and while her face is clear of makeup, the shoot could probably ensue without applying anyâ€”sheâ€™s naturally stunning. But it isnâ€™t just her appearance. Diasâ€™ personality also demands attention, which is a useful trait for the actress and model to have.
Dias began her modeling career at 12 years old after winning a beauty contest in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. â€śA friend from my middle school signed me up for the pageant as a surprise and I won,â€ť Dias says. Just as she was then, the now 33-year-old is impressive at winging thingsâ€”like posing on the bow of a yacht thatâ€™s been cooking in the sun all afternoon while reflectors and camera flashes target her eyeballs.
For the last look of the shoot, Dias is decorated with reds: a hugging dress, strappy heels and matching lip. She could board a jet destined for a private island, or dazzle paparazzi on her way to an awards show. But instead, once the shoot wraps, Dias changes back into her lightweight romper and heads out for a round of miniature golf with her family.
