Modeling runs in the family for Sarahyba. Her mother, Mara Lucia Sarahyba, was a successful model in her native Brazil, and there’s little doubt she passed those genes down to Daniella, who has been canvased in many of the Swimsuit issues’ body painting series, and also earned a contract with esteemed modeling agency IMG.

Random Fact: Sarahyba began her modeling career as a toddler, making the cover of Pais & Filhos, a Brazilian parenting magazine, when she was three years old.
