Another beauty from the 2008 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
This is the beautiful Brazilian girl is Yasmin Brunet, but she was not with compatriot Ana Beatriz Barros in Nicaragua. Her photos were shot on the island of Maui in the State of Hawaii, which is the home of the pretty Kelly Hu.
Yasmin was born June 6 1988 at Gavea, Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. Her father's name is Armando Fernandes and her mother Luiza Brunet was a former model who had also posed for Playboy Brazil. Yasmin Brunet Fernandes is her full name but she is known simply as Yasmin Brunet.
Yasmin Brunet typifies the trend of young and thin in fashion having started her modeling career as a 13-year old. Two years later, after short stints in New York and Europe, where her father escorted her, Fernandes finally hit the big time by taking part in the Sao Paulo Fashion Week in her native Brazil.
Like South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel Yasmin Brunet has natural brown hair which she can darken to appear as a brunette:
Or lighten to appear as a blonde:

Yasmin has a skull tattooed on her left foot, she has appeared on the cover of Brasil Elle Magazine, and has done ads for Calzedonia, Disritmia, and Escada. Brunet is a popular lingerie model.
Yasmin Brunet's mother Luiza has been taking an active interest in her daughter's modeling career. Even when Yasmin was in school and had just started modeling, she began dating the Brazilian actor Kayky Brito, also 14, with her parents' approval. It was then rumored that this relationship was more of a means for Yasmin to come into the limelight.
Yasmin then had a relationship with the gorgeous Evandro Soldati seen together in this picture:
The two are no longer a couple. They had been together since February 2006 and Yasmin had gone to the extent of tattooing her sweetheart's name on her wrist!
Yasmin Brunet's body measurements are 32-24-34 with a 5'8" height. In a 2003 interview Yasmin had said that she would like surgery to get bigger eyes, a smaller nose, and breasts like Giselle Bundchen's. Rumors began to fly that Yasmin had that sometime last year; but was it after or before the Sports Illustrated shoot?? Her "augmented" photos appeared in the French Purple Fashion Magazine.
This is her SI interview:
And the sexiest thing I've ever done for a man is ...
I do sexy things all the time. Brazilians are very sexy. But I just can't remember anything specific.
I feel a secret connection with ...
Angelina Jolie! We're both Geminis. I love her, oh my god. She's the perfect woman. I would totally be with her if she wanted me. I would totally convert myself to being a lesbian full time. She's the sexiest woman ever.
If you asked my friends about me, the first thing they would tell you is ...
That I'm crazy. I change my mind all the time about everything. I cannot make up my mind whatsoever. I'm like totally insane. I will tell you something right now and then in 10 seconds I will say 'I didn't say that!' It's Geminis! It's the worst sign ever. I hate it. If you asked me this survey in an hour, I would have different answers for everything. I don't even know who I am. It's like I'm five people in one. I drive myself crazy. And my mother's a Gemini, too. She drives me crazy -- and I drive her crazy. But it's a good crazy. Not like psycho killer.
One thing I do only when I'm home completely alone is ...
Sing. I'm a horrible singer. I've never done karaoke. I can hear my voice; it's horrible. I hate it. I've been to singing lessons and stuff and had this voice coach. I tried to sing because I used to play the guitar and drums -- and I'm totally into dancing. I wanted to have a band and be the lead singer, but I always sucked. You can't be a lead singer without being able to sing, so I gave it up.
I won't date a man if he ...
Lies, cheats, is not caring, not loving, not romantic. I will not date a man if he's not man enough. I love little things guys do -- like biting off their nails. I love that, it's so boyish. I used to do that all the time and then I realized I'm not a boy. Little things don't bother me.
When it comes to nudity, most people don't know that I ...
Have a nipple ring. When I was 15, my mother didn't want me to do it, so I got my grandmother to take me to get a nipple ring. And then I came back a couple days later to do it on the other one, but when I looked at myself in the mirror I thought it was kind of boyish, so I took one out. Now I only have one.
An athlete I have a secret crush on is ...
I don't even know any athletes. I only know Tiger Woods but I don't have a crush on him. I guess Lance Armstrong is cute.
How about an entertainer?
Can it be more than one? I love Justin Timberlake. He's so hot. And I loooove Jake Gyllenhaal. I've never met either. Can you arrange that?
The last time I saw a woman and thought "I wish I looked like her" was ...
That's like a lot of times. Every time I see models -- like Gisele, I think she's so hot -- I think that. Women are so insecure in general. You always want to change something.
Another Jake Gyllenhaal fan?? Did these Brazilian gals work together on this QA session?
Yasmin Brunet Fernandes lives in New York, like Ana Beatriz, and regularly visits her parents in Brazil.
