LISBON, Portugal - Michelle Larcher de Brito, one of the most promising young stars on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, has begun following in the footsteps of her megastar colleagues, recently doing a photo shoot for Elle Magazine in Portugal.

The photo shoot, which was part of a public relations campaign created around Larcher de Brito for receiving the Revelation Award late last year from by the Fundacao Luso-Brasiliera (Portuguese-Brazilian Foundation), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of political, economic and cultural relations between Portuguese-speaking countries. The annual awards debuted in 2005, and recognizes individuals or institutions in the Portuguese-speaking world that distinguish themselves by their achievements. Award categories are Politics, Economics, Culture & Science and Revelation, and the ceremony takes place at the Casino Estoril.

"This was my first big fashion shoot for a magazine as big as Elle, so I was a little nervous," commented Larcher de Brito, who turns 16 years old this week. "The photographer, Pedro, and the staff made me feel really comfortable and relaxed though, and I had a lot of fun. The clothes were really cool too, and I am sure every girl would love to do something like this. I can't wait to do another one.

"The funny part about the photo shoot was that they somehow brought shoes that were all about three sizes too small, so I wasn't entirely comfortable. The entire time I was just trying not to show the pain on my face! I can't imagine what I would have done if I had size 10 or 11 feet because I think I may have been crying. I guess beauty really is pain, just like they say!"

The photos were taken by noted fashion photographer Pedro Ferreira, and the shoot took place in Lisbon in October 2008.
