We’re feeling the samba beat as we introduce Brazilian goddess and Victoria’s Secret Angel Lais Ribeiro as Maxim’s September/October cover star. The supermodel explains how she made it from her hometown in Brazil to the catwalks of New York, Milan, and Shanghai, and has stayed at the top of the modeling world for more than a decade. We also have stars on the rise, from comedy meister turned dramatic leading man Rob Riggle to one of the NFL’s top young players, L.A. Rams running back Todd Gurley. The icons are here too, as we profile Netflix boss Reed Hastings and his takeover of the entertainment industry, as well as Nicolas Bijan, who continues his family’s legacy at Bijan, one of the world’s premier bespoke fashion houses. Finally, we head off to the Swiss Alps, where luxury accommodations, fine cuisine, and year-round outdoor adventure keep even the most demanding visitor satisfied. Enjoy the issue.
