You have probably seen her in Brazil's Next Top Model Cycle 2, this girl being one of the 12 finalist in a very popular model search which also run in the entire Latin America.
Luana Reis, our Brazilian-Japanese girl from Rio De Janeiro is the new Jergens endorser for 2009! This is the second year that IM got the Jergens contract. The model endorser for 2008 was the equally beautiful Gabriela Endo, also from South America.
One of Luana's latest feat this year is starring in the new Rejoice TV and Print advertisement which is being aired in Southeast Asia. She is currently making her rounds in Asia for work but will definitely be back to Manila in October.

As the credits rolled on the much awaited Bollywood Movie Love Aaj Kal, there were two comments that were heard again and again inside the cinema hall. ‘Wow that was good’ (or words to that effect) was one and the other was ‘who’s the actress who played Harleen?”
So who was the exceedingly pretty and shy Punjabi kudi? No one knew and perusing the film credits didn’t shine any light on the matter and that was clearly by design.
The newcomer has generated curiosity ever since the film’s promos were released, but filmmakers were intent on keeping her identity shrouded in secrecy and it was all part of a plan.
Well, it seems that the role of Harleen was acted by none other than our very own Giselli! After the release of the movie in India, and simultaneously worldwide especially in UK, Middle East and U.S.A, her name became the top five most googled name in India!
So now that the best kept secret in Bollywood is no longer a secret, it was only a matter of time before Harleen (Giselli Monteiro) stepped forward to take her bow and bask in the glory of ‘Love Aaj Kal’.
Giselli has officially arrived on the Bollywood scene and audiences have taken this pardesi, desi girl to their hearts in a way in which no other foreign actress has managed before.
Kudos to Giselli!
