She spent her childhood in Porto, the small but vibrant tourist town in Portugal. She is one of two kids in the family of Cristina and Armando Sampaio. Sara’s relatives characterize her as a “tomboy”. In her childhood, she was a very active and mobile child. In her teens, she didn’t like her body, because it was not curvaceous enough. In her interview with “Elle,” Sara confessed that she “had no butt and no boobs” and that made her upset.
In 2007 her too slim body helped her to win the modeling contest. Immediately she got an offer to become a professional model but her parents didn’t allow her to quit schooling, so Sara refused a career in the fashion world for a while. But after she had completed her school education and spent a year at the University of Lisbon, she moved to the capital of her country – Lisbon – to give her model opportunities a chance.
From the very beginning, she put a very ambitious aim n front of her – she wanted to participate in Victoria’s Secret show. She came for an audition for the first time unprepared, so she was refused. The next year she failed again, but didn’t give up and continued to work hard. As a result, she was accepted and debuted in Victoria’s Secret show in 2013. Later she was selected as Victoria’s Secret angel.
Except for that gig, Sara participated in many other projects. She appeared on the covers of many popular reputable magazines, like “Sports Illustrated”, Portuguese “Vogue”, “L’Officiel”, “Elle” and many others. Besides, she became the face of Michael Kors perfume “Gorgeous!”
