However, she’s not just a successful model, designer and entrepreneur, she’s a busy mom of three. And this month, Alves is a SheKnows Mommaloguer!
Camila Alves is SheKnows’ guest vlogger and she’ll be sharing her thoughts about motherhood along with our regular Mommaloguers. You’ll love learning more about Alves as she talks about everything from fashion to parenting.
Camila on the runway
Born in Brazil, Alves moved to Los Angeles at the age of 15 to visit her aunt and pursue a career in fashion. She didn’t speak English when she arrived in the U.S., but picked up the language while waiting tables and cleaning houses. At 19, her modeling career took off and she moved to New York City, where she worked with some of the top names in the industry. Her modeling work allowed her to travel around the world from the Europe to Asia to Africa.
Camila on screen
Alves’ first TV role was serving as the host of Shear Genius on Bravo in 2010. Since that time, she’s also co-hosted The View and appeared as a guest on a number of programs, including Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Chelsea Lately.
The creation of MUXO
In 2005, Alves teamed up with her fashion designer mom, Fatima, to create a line of functional yet fashionable handbags. The high-end MUXO line was very successful, and the mother-and-daughter team went on to develop a more affordable line for the masses — the MUXO collection for QVC.
Marriage and kids
Alves met Matthew McConaughey back in 2006. The gorgeous duo got engaged on Christmas Day in 2011 and were married on June 9, 2012. They have three kids — two sons (Levi and Livingston) and a daughter (Vida) — and reside in Austin, Texas.
