Fernanda Motta, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and host of Brazil’s Next Top Model, is launching her own line of denim, WWD reports. The 25-piece line of jeans and shorts is a collaboration with the Brazilian denim company John John, hence the name of the collection: Fernanda Motta ♥ John John. The pieces (shown left) average $150 and will hit stores this spring. With SI under her belt, a Top Model hosting gig, and now a clothing line, Motta’s got herself quite the expanding empire. Sounds like she’s on her way to becoming the Brazilian Tyra Banks!
