It may be getting colder, but temperature is definitely on the rise in South America. Plus-size model Fluvia Lacerda sizzles on the cover of the latest issue of Playboy Brazil and she happens to be making history by becoming the first-ever plus-size model to ever grace the cover of the magazine.
Fluvia Lacerda: Brazilian Bombshell Graces Cover of Playboy
It was early this year when Playboy officially announced that they were ditching nude centerfolds for good. Now the iconic brand is stepping up their game by featuring a plus-size model on its cover.
Thirty-six-year-old Fluvia Lacerda is not your ordinary model. She is proud of her curves and is not afraid to flaunt it to her more than one hundred thousand Instagram followers. On her online page, Fluvia describes herself as a “globe trotter” and “fashion obsessed.” She is now based in New York City where she bags a lot of fashion campaigns.
By the looks of it, the 5’6″ model has been around in the business for quite a while. Fluvia has extended her clientele from Europe to her homeland of Latin America. Europeans even refer to her as the “plus-size Gisele Bundchen” thanks to her sultry looks and stunning features.
Among Fluvia Lacerda’s campaigns are Torrid, Fashion Bug, and Kiabi France. She also got a spread in Vogue Italy.
Fluvia excitedly announced her Playboy project to fans back on November 18 via her Instagram page.
