Ana Beatriz Barros (born 29 May 1982) is a Brazilian model who has become one of the world's top models. She has made multiple appearances in the SI Swimsuit issues as well as her Victoria's Secret work. She has green eyes and light brown hair.
Ana is from Itabira, Minas Gerais, Brazil, later moving to Rio de Janeiro. She is of Portuguese, Spanish and Italian ancestry. When she was 13, she and her older sister Patricia were vacationing in Rio when they were spotted by a talent scout (isn't that how it always happens?). The scout was from Elite Model Management, and that led Barros to compete in the Elite Model Look 1996, where Ana was named the runner-up to Diana Kovalchuk. This led to work with Guess? on the Millennium GUESS? campaign, where she worked with Alessandra Ambrosio.
Since then, Ana has represented, among many others:
- Armani Jeans,
- Oakley, L'Oréal,
- Victoria's Secret,
- Chanel cosmetics, and
Ana walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008, and 2009. Her covers include:

A major feather in Ana's portfolio was appearing no less than seven times in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition (2002-2003, 2005-2006, and 2008-2009). She also appeared on the FHM '100 Sexiest Women in the World' list in 2006.
