In addition to being strikingly beautiful and an A-list celebrity, she is also extraordinarily approachable. That combination is incredibly valuable to I·N·C and to our consumer,” states Nancy Slavin, senior vice president of marketing for Macy's Private Brands. Set against a clear desert oasis in California, the Brazilian model was captured by photographer Walter Chin, with styling by Bill Mullen. Alves' innate style transitions flawlessly from glamorous bombshell in body-conscious dresses to down-to-earth beauty in casual knits and denim, an exciting new category for the brand. The fall collection offers rich hues of teal and burgundy, along with pops of peplum and playful snakeskin prints. A flawless choice for ambassador, Alves was thrilled about the partnership, stating, “I've always admired Macy's for catering to women with diverse lifestyles. I'm naturally more laid-back when it comes to dressing but also like to show my sexier side for special occasions and I·N·C caters to both ends of the spectrum.” Consumers will be able to experience Alves' stylish success story via macys.com/inc starting late August.
