First posted Diego Furoni in Barong Tagalog when he won Eat Bulaga's My Foreignoy and never really tried googling his name to find out more about him. When I did later this week, I got a little confused about his nationality because he was introduced as Italian in Eat Bulaga but in his Modelling profile, he is Brazilian.
Oh yes, i never thought that he has been in the modeling world for a while now.
Diego Furoni was born in a small city located in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul named Alcinopolis in Brazil, but moved to Campo Grande at the age of 7.
He started modeling at the age of 16 in Campo Grande. His mother told him to go to some modeling agencies because she thinks he is good in modeling.
He met Anderson Alvves, his agent now, and explained to him about the modeling world and how to become a good model.
Diego Furoni have already posed naked. It's just a job and for him its important to have diferent kinds of poses or styles.
He had done a lot of catwalks specially in Asia, but I also have done in Milan. The best catwalk experience for him was in 2009 for Giorgio Armani show. In 2000, he walked for Emporio Armani , CK, G2000, Armani exchange , Gucci and Marc Jacobs!
