December 24, 2016

Brazilian beauty Mari Giudicelli’s sky-high career has included modeling gigs for international brands like Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Ulla Johnson and Eckhaus Latta, but the recent FIT graduate is now setting her sights on something a little closer to the ground — shoes. 

Earlier this year, the Ford model-turned-designer launched an eponymous collection of comfortable and reasonably heeled footwear that is expected to make its in-store debut this fall.
