Brazil keeps churning out those beauties.

Maybelline New York announced today that 21 year-old Lisalla Montenegro has signed with the cosmetics brand, joining fellow glamazon spokesmodels Christy Turlington, Erin Wasson and Julia Stegner.

"On top of being incredibly beautiful, Lisalla is one of the most likeable and determined people I have ever met! She takes her job very seriously and her passion for life is addictive. Lisalla exudes a natural, fresh yet slightly feline beauty -- making her the perfect addition to our amazing roster of spokesmodels," says Cyril Chapuy, Global Brand President of Maybelline New York.

Montenegro was born and raised in Goias, Brazil -- where she was discovered at a young age while competing in the Miss Goias beauty pageant. Modeling agents saw the pouty-lipped beauty's potential, and brought her to the USA where Montenegro successfully began her career.

The 5' 9 catwalker has graced the runways of Hermès, Michael Kors, Armani Exchange and Tracy Reese. Editorial spreads in American, Brazilian and Chinese Vogue have also highlighted Montenegro's career, as have shoots for Glamour, GQ and Nylon.

Look for ads featuring Montenegro to start running in June -- just in time to add some bronzed Brazilian beauty to summer's steamy days.
