Maria Borges in a past interview disclosed that she takes a 'step-by-step' approach to her modelling career and that has been her philosophy since arriving in New York City to begin her modelling career. in the opinion of some fashion insiders she is now an 'elite' model, a designation that has been justified with her appearance on the May 2014 cover of the prestigious fashion magazine Vogue Portugal.
On the cover she is wearing a black designer dress in a pose which celebrates her striking and defined facial features. Her prominent cheekbones and her focused gaze evoke images of a woman in charge looking fierce and glamorous.
Only the 'elite' models are chosen for the cover of a Vogue magazine and her appearance along with the pictures of her in the magazine illustrate why she has reached this rarefied status in the fashion world.
The photo spread is titled "A Flora Da Pele" but it might as well be considered her coming out party as an elite model as each picture of her evokes thoughts of beauty, glamour, confidence and sensual sophistication.
Fashion insiders and observers upon viewing Maria Borges in the Vogue Portugal magazine immediately become intrigued with both her look and what she is thinking during her various poses while imagining themselves or someone they know possibly wearing the same clothing.
It is one of the traits of an elite model to be able to get viewers to think about what the model might have been thinking and imagining themselves wearing such clothes.
Maria Borges is a model who possess this talent and that is why she was chosen for the cover of the May 2014 issue of Vogue Portugal and is considered an 'elite' model in the fashion world who is just starting to scratch the surface of her potential.
